Reduce Inflammation

Decrease pro-inflammatory mediators and boost anti-inflammatory agents.

Enhance Tear Film Quality

Improve tear osmolarity, lipid layer, and tear meniscus height by  focusing on the pro inflammatory factors

Target Vascular Abnormalities

Neutralize unusual vascular formations to reduce, lessen, or improve the inflammatory processes

Improve Meibomian Glands

"IPL benefits
rosacea, improving the dysfunction of the meibomian
glands, clearing telangiectasia, and reducing erythema."

Dr. Carlos Verges, Professor of Ophthalmolgy University of Cataluna, Barcelona

Skin Rejuvenation

Stimulates collagen production and reduces fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and skin tone for improved skin health and appearance.

Stop Skin and Eyelid Inflammation



*The referenced clinical study was conducted using Thermaeye IPL.


Treatment sessions are swift, lasting about 10 minutes, making it a perfect fit for your practice's routine. Thermaeye streamlines your workflow with just 4 straightforward sessions.

Enhance clinical outcomes, practice growth, and synergize perfectly with MiBoFlo and LLLT for a comprehensive approach.

Skin and eyelid inflammation vascular

Inflammatory skin diseases cause blood vessels to become abnormal and release substances that lead to inflammation. When this happens near the eyes, these substances can travel to the eyelids, causing them to become inflamed and leading to eye problems. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a great treatment for these types of skin issues. IPL targets the hemoglobin in the abnormal blood vessels and destroys them, which helps reduce inflammation and prevents it from affecting the eyelids.

IPL: The Transition from Dermatology to Ophthalmology


Dr. Rolando Toyos, an ophthalmologist, initially treated patients in his clinic for rosacea. The first IPL technology used in Dr. Toyos' clinic was the Dermamed Diamond Quadra. Since then, many other IPL devices have transitioned from dermatology to ophthalmology, offering the best of both worlds for patients. Additionally, the nomograms have improved significantly.

In 2002, Dr. Toyos noticed clinical signs of improvement in Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD) and Dry Eye Disease. From 2002 to 2008, Dr. Toyos refined his nomogram and technique. Although patients were initially diagnosed with rosacea and not dry eye, they were treated with IPL for their vascular or rosacea condition. Over a series of visits, the patients' rosacea improved, and simultaneously, so did their MGD and Dry Eye Disease.

ThermaEye IPL developed their own nomogram and treatment parameters with Professor Jose Salgado Borges1,2*, Professor Dr. Carlos Vergés 2, J. Lima1, March de Ribot 

ThermaEye IPL initially adopted Dr. Toyos' nomogram as a foundational guideline. Over time, however, the team of university ophthalmologists in Spain embarked on extensive research and clinical trials to refine and enhance their approach. They meticulously developed their own nomogram and treatment parameters, tailored specifically to optimize the efficacy and safety of IPL therapy for various vascular ocular skin and inflammatory conditions. This iterative process involved rigorous testing and adjustment, ultimately resulting in a set of protocols that significantly improved patient outcomes and broadened the therapeutic potential of ThermaEye IPL technology.​​

Additionally, the university ophthalmologists included all Fitzpatrick skin types in their studies, ensuring that their treatment protocols were effective and safe for a diverse range of patients. Research and clinical studies are continually ongoing, contributing to the ongoing evolution and improvement of the technology and its applications. 4
