IPL Treatment Options

Broad-spectrum light that treats brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, uneven pigmentation, and redness, an IPL photo facial penetrates multiple layers of skin, targeting primarily the lower layers (dermis) while leaving the top layers (epidermis) unaffected. Heat generated from the light promotes healing of the skin within, treating various dermatological issues.

A clinically-proven, unique radiofrequency (RF) treatment, Thermage works from the inside out, transferring heat to your skin's outer layer (epidermis) in order to cause it's collagen to contract and gradually reform. Because outer layers of the skin are unaffected, there is almost no recovery period. What's more, a single Thermage treatment may last up to ten years.

*Results and patient experience may vary.

You're a great candidate for laser skin rejuvenation if have:

  • Acne scars
  • Uneven skin pigmentation
  • Nonresponsive skin after a facelift
  • Fine lines or wrinkles around or under the eyes, forehead, or mouth
  • Fair, untanned skin

*Please know that laser skin rejuvenation doesn't produce perfect skin. Rather, it improves the appearance of damaged skin that has aged.

  • Spider Veins

The IPL is very effective on diminishing spider veins. Spider veins are the small red and purple veins visible right under the skin surface. These are commonly found on the face, thigh, calves, ankles and behind the knees. Spider veins are connected to the larger, deeper bluish reticular veins which often “feed” the spider veins. IPL works by using light energy which is absorbed by the blood vessels causing them to constrict the blood vessel and close down. The body will then absorb the remnants in 4 to 8 weeks. On average, 2 to 4 spider vein treatments in our Denver office are usually required however; many will be treated with a single treatment.

  • IPL Photofacial

The IPL photofacial is a skin rejuvenation treatment that delivers intense pulse light to target and destroy vascular and pigmented lesions associated with spider veins, reticular veins, rosacea, hemangiomas, sun damage, age spots, melasma, and angiomas from hands, legs, chest, arms and face. IPL photofacial treatments target different colors in the skin, which selectively absorb the laser or light energy as heat and yield the desired response. These optimal wavelengths of light clear vascular and pigmented lesions by

targeting the chromophores of hemoglobin (for vascular lesions) and melanin (for pigmented lesions). These damaged lesions are then cleared by the body, removing the appearance of the lesion from the skin. Pigmented lesions undergo a mild scaling and slough off within two or three days, while the vascular lesions blanch and then resolve within 10 to 14 days. 

Some of the benefits include:

  • Excellent aesthetic results with minimal treatment time
  • Less treatment pain
  • Little to no downtime
  • Acne and Acne Scars

IPL acne and acne scar treatments are excellent for preventing future acne breakouts and smoothing the appearance of acne scars. By delivering a spectrum of light that is absorbed into the skin, IPL destroys P. acnes bacteria and inhibits future acne breakouts.To treat acne scars, we use pulses of laser light to coagulate acne scar tissue and trigger healthy new tissue to form in clients' skin. Healing time is minimal, infection risk is eliminated and clients feel little to no pain.

Acne Treatment Benefits for Clients:

  • Clearer Skin
  • Comfortable and well tolerated procedure
  • No downtime
