The Equinox Low Level Light Therapy is a non-invasive and stress free treatment for dry eye conditions. No gel application is needed, and the entire periocular area can be treated simultaneously with direct and indirect applications.
Equinox Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT)
The Equinox Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) is a non-invasive, pain and stress-free treatment of dry eye and MGD for all patients regardless of skin type. No gel is required and the entire periocular area is treated using direct and indirect Photobiomodulation during the typical 15-minute application.
Our technology utilizes specially designed LED lights to deliver focused light of a specific color that target the cellular power plants of the cells – the mitochondria, via comfortable wearable mask technology. This photobiomodulation stimulates production of ATP – the energy that powers the cell. Our exclusive mask technology places the LEDs 5-10mm from the skin, optimizing treatment.
LLLT technology has been used in medicine for over 10 years but only until recently did doctors discover its benefit for dry eye conditions, as well as several other skin conditions.
Dry Eye & MGD Conditions
Treatment parameters safely managed by on board software. Multiple ophthalmic treatment possibilities. Dermatological treatment option also available.
Benefits of Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT)
- LLLT therapy is easy. The automated treatment software calculates the energy and duration of the process.
- The painless, 15-minute procedure provides a comfortable patient experience with no gel required.
- A unique, patented LED mask treats the periocular area efficiently.
- LLLT is capable of producing results for the patient from the first treatment. In many cases, 1 or 2 treatments are enough.1
- The instrument and software are upgradeable so you will always have the latest generation of equipment with new opportunities for innovative treatments.
- Minimal economic commitment and low per patient costs make LLLT a great option for those launching services to dry eye conditions.

Stimulates production of collagen and elastin — Red light is absorbed by mitochondria and stimulates ATP increasing cellular action, enhancing its activity1.
Specific action on the lymphatic system — Yellow light stimulates cells’ metabolism promoting a detoxifying action to relieve swelling conditions2.
Purification action — Blue light is recognized to be the ideal wavelength to solicit porphyrins to obtain a bacteriostatic effect with a consequent elimination of bacteria3.

We have had the opportunity to work with the system for over 3 years at this point. It has been a very successful addition to our practice. The additive options such as the Blue and Red LLLT mask treatments allow us to treat mixed mechanism dry eye patients and the LLLT device alone allows us to treat all patients no matter what skin type. Overall, this device is our primary “go to” device as an initial treatment and having this device has increased the referrals from our comanaging doctors.Read Less

The Equinox has been the best thing we have done for our practice in the last 20 years. I used to dread hearing from patients that they had dry eyes. Now I have a way to treat their dry eyes and it has made an amazing difference. We are treating up to 12 patients a day and getting amazing results. We have been treating patients with MGD, rosacea, blepharitis, styes, and chalazia. We have also used low level light therapy (LLLT) for some of our patients with facial acne and wrinkles. Our staff love using it because it is easy to use and the patients tell them how great they feel.Read Less
