Dry Eye Treatment with Radiofrequency and Intense Pulse Light

New Forma-I Radiofrequency and Lumecca Intense Pulsed Light Dry Eye Treatments

The Inmode Forma-I and Lumecca are energy-based dry eye treatment systems focused on treating dry eye that may result from aging, hormonal changes, environmental conditions, UV exposure, and excessive screen usage. The treatments are quick, safe, and carefully tailored to your specific eye needs without annoying medication or prolonged recovery times.

Symptoms of Dry Eye include red, gritty and irritated eyes that may water, itch or burn. If this sounds familiar to you, you may be suffering from Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD). MGD is the most common type of dry eye and occurs when your Meibomian glands that produce oil get blocked or the oil is too thick or of poor quality—leading to tears evaporating quickly and drying out your eyes. If left untreated, MGD can result in decreased Meibomian gland functionality. Therefore, the goal of treatment is to unblock the Meibomian glands, ultimately helping to restore healthy tear film.

What is Forma-I Radiofrequency (RF) by Inmode?

Forma-I is an innovative and safe dry eye treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to deliver a non-invasive heat treatment to the eyes. Radiofrequency has been shown to stimulate the oil glands in the eyelids which improves the quality of the tear film and alleviates dry eye symptoms. The heat further stimulates collagen formation, bringing white blood cells, and stem cells to the skin around your eyes while reducing inflammation. 

Forma-I (RF) works by delivering radiofrequency energy to the obstructed Meibomian glands, allowing for free-flowing oil production and preventing the rapid evaporation of your tears that result in dry eye symptoms. The pressure from the applicator further allows the oils to be expressed. This treatment is ideal for those looking for immediate results as it can be performed as a stand-alone treatment or can be paired with Lumecca IPL to further combat dry eye symptoms.

Benefits of Forma-I:

  • Immediate improvements of your dry eye symptoms
  • Safe, comfortable and painless
  • Quick, non-invasive with no downtime
  • Tailored treatment to your specific needs
  • Bonus aesthetic benefits including reduced wrinkles, crow’s feet and fine lines and tightened skin

What is Lumecca Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) by Inmode?

Lumecca uses Intense Pulsed light (IPL) to deliver a comfortable light treatment that has been approved by Health Canada as an effective treatment for dry eye, blepharitis and ocular rosacea. IPL has further been shown to decrease demodex and bacteria around the eyelids.

IPL technology works in the treatment of dry eye by stimulating the facial tissue through controlled light pulses that target blood vessels and pigmented lesions. This results in a significant reduction of inflammatory levels along the eyelid margin. The Lumecca light energy, wavelengths, pulse rate and duration can be adjusted to meet each patient’s severity of dry eye.

Benefits of Lumecca:

  • Decrease in dry eye symptoms and ocular rosacea
  • Reduced abnormal blood vessels to alleviate inflammation
  • Safe, quick, in-office procedure
  • Same day recovery, slight redness for up to an hour
  • Tailored treatment to your specific needs
  • Bonus aesthetic benefits including decreased redness, sun spots and hyperpigmentation
