IPL Treatments at Uptown Medical Aesthetics

Uptown Medical Aesthetics offers Photo Facial or IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatments for our Northglenn, CO patients. The skin rejuvenation treatment can be performed on your face, chest, neck, and hands. It helps reduce redness, lift age-related skin pigmentation issues, minimize sun damage, and reduce the appearance of scarring. The non-surgical procedure rejuvenates the overall look and feel of your skin. Our skincare experts will meet with you to determine if a Photo Facial is the best solution for your anti-aging needs.

How Does a Photo Facial Work?

A Photo Facial uses intense pulsed light applied to the treatment area. The pulsed light works to penetrate the skin, heating impaired vessels or areas of pigmentation. The damaged areas will darken and flake off while the damaged vessels are absorbed back into the body. IPL light boosts collagen production, smoothing and toning the skin. As the body naturally heals, the skin looks radiant. Over time, IPL works to reduce wrinkles, scars, and other skin issues. Once the skin issues are removed, the existing cells produce newer and healthier skin.

Benefits of a Photo Facial Treatment

A Photo Facial treatment helps refresh your skin and help you feel your best. IPL treatment improves many conditions, including:

  • Eliminates blotchiness
  • Reduces sun and age spots
  • Targets fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve uneven pigmentation
  • Evens skin tone
  • Improves the appearance of broken blood vessels

Photo Facial Expectations

After a Photo Facial treatment, the skin may look flushed or red. Pigmented spots will darken before they fade, and capillaries may appear more visible before they disappear. Most patients see visible results of glowing skin in about two weeks. Patients vary with their treatments but typically will notice drastic results in about three treatments. We recommend four to six treatments for optimal results.

IPL vs. Laser Skin Resurfacing

IPL does not use laser technology for its treatments. IPL releases a variety of different light wavelengths, while a laser only uses a singular wavelength. Photo Facial treatments are scattered instead of concentrated like a laser. IPL is able to penetrate the dermis layer of the skin and keep the top layer intact to reduce damage and downtime. The light energy is absorbed into the skin, turning it into heat that breaks up the pigmentation.
