IRIS™ 2 is a non-invasive, quick, effective, and ultra-hygienic eye massaging device inspired by ancient finger-tapping lymphatic drainage techniques practiced in Asia. The finger-tapping acupressure motion increases lymphatic drainage, helping to reduce the appearance of dark circles and refresh & depuff tired eyes. It also helps relax tension in facial muscles, caused by eye strain from screens and small print. Built to fit the eye contour perfectly, IRIS™ 2 also enhances the efficacy of your eye care cosmetics by increasing the absorption of the active ingredients, pushing them deep into your skin where they work best.

What is the technology behind IRIS™ 2?
These T-Sonic™ pulsations gently massage the eye area to relieving strained eyes, while increasing the absorption of creams, serums, and essences – thus enhancing their efficacy. Also, when directed onto the eye area, T-Sonic™ pulsations help improve blood flow, which helps reduce eye strain and relieve dry, tired eyes while reducing puffiness and the appearance of dark circles – for fresh, clear & energized eyes.
Acupressure is often called acupuncture without needles. It involves the application of manual pressure (usually with the fingertips) to specific points on the body. According to the principles of traditional Chinese medicine, invisible pathways of energy called meridians flow within the body. At least 14 internal pathways are thought to connect our organs with other parts of the body. Acupressure points lie along those meridians. If the flow of energy (also called “chi”) is blocked at any point on a meridian, it’s thought to cause various symptoms and health conditions anywhere along the meridian.
How does it work?
The eyes are literally surrounded by acupuncture points. These points can be stimulated using acupressure to relieve eye strain. Acupressure massage used for eye strain is a simple and effective means to help move blood and oxygen to the tissues in and surrounding the eyes. Massaging the acupressure points for the eyes is a technique you can use at home and on a daily basis.
