Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT)

What is Low-Level Light Therapy? (LLLT)

Developed by NASA, LLLT is the latest technology in dry eye treatment. LLLT uses specially designed LED lights to gently warm up the upper and lower eyelids, causing the Meibomian glands to unclog and release oils. 

• Safe, non-invasive procedure

• 15 minutes per session

• No recovery time needed

• No side effects or discomfort

• Safe for adults and children

It's quick and painless! Simply lay back with the Equinox mask on and relax as the warm light clears your glands. LLLT is also effective in treating conditions that require stimulation of healing and reduction of inflammation such as blepharitis, styes and cysts. It may also help decrease the appearance of facial wrinkles, acne and rosacea.

Benefits of Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT)

The painless, 15-minute procedure needs no gel required.
A unique, patented LED mask treats the upper and lower eyelids simultaneously for greater MGD pathology coverage.
LLLT is capable of producing results from the first treatment. In many cases, 1 to 4 treatments are enough.

Red Light

Stimulates production of collagen and elastin - Red light is absorbed by mitochondria and stimulates ATP increasing cellular action, enhancing its activity.


Yellow Light

Specific action on the lymphatic system-Yellow light stimulates cells' metabolism promoting a detoxifying action to relieve swelling conditions.
