IPL System, Intense Pulsed Light

* Not FDA Approved

  • Treatment of the root causes of dry eye thanks to the multiple mechanisms of action of IPL: Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (MGD), inflammation (rosacea and blepharitis) and Demodex
  • Quick and easy treatment (<10 min)
  • Revolutionary IPL relying on our unique Stim-ULI™ (Uniform Light Intensity) technique, C.Stim™ offers the best combination of clinical efficacy and patient comfort. Thanks to a perfectly homogeneous distribution of energy, C.Stim™ ensures safe and effective treatment.
  • Treatment on the majority of skin types thanks to optimized characteristics (light spectrum, regulated pulse train, water cooling, unique Stim-ULI™ technology)


  • Improved tear film quality [14,15,21]
  • Better meibum quality and expression [16,17]
  • Reduction in patient symptoms [17]
  • Neuropathic pain relief [18]
  • Reduced inflammatory markers (cytokines) in tears [19,20]
