Photo Facial, Microneedling and Sublative RF

Uptown Medical Aesthetics offers a variety of skin-rejuvenating services including Microneedling, using the Bellus SkinPen® used to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Sublative RF uses Fractional Technology to provide ablative resurfacing to the skin.

We are now offering PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) as an upgrade to your micro-needling or sublative procedure.  More commonly known as the vampire facial when combined with micro-needling, PRP is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from the blood after it has been drawn and spun in a centrifuge separating the plasma and red blood cells.  PRP helps your skin naturally rebuild it’s own collagen, enhancing your results!

Photo Facial treatment is effective in reducing redness.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Photo Facial?
A Photo Facial is a technique for removing discoloration in the skin resulting in an even and youthful appearance. This procedure is non-surgical and requires no downtime.

How Does a Photo Facial Work?
The Photo Facial utilizes intense pulsed light that is applied to the area being treated. The pulsed light penetrates the skin. Heat impairs pigmentation or vessels and the body begins its natural healing process. The pigmented area will darken and flake off and vessels will be reabsorbed into the body. The skin’s appearance is left more youthful with even tones and reduced redness.

What Are The Benefits Of a Photo Facial Treatment?
The Photo Facial will improve the following conditions:

  • Sun and age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve uneven pigmentation and red flushing of the skin
  • Smooth skin and even the skins tone
  • Improve the appearance of Rosacea and broken capillaries

How Will My Skin Look After A Photo Facial Treatment?
It is normal for the skin to look and feel flushed or red after the treatment (similar to a mild sunburn). Brown pigmented spots will become darker and capillaries may appear more visible for a short period of time. Most individuals can resume social activities immediately following the treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I need?
The condition of your skin and the desired results will determine the number of necessary treatments. Some individuals notice a significant improvement in 2-3 treatments. For optimal results, 4-6 treatments are recommended in 4-week intervals.

Are Photo Facial Treatments Painful?
The treatment feels like a rubber band snapping lightly against your skin. Following the treatment, a cool compress may be applied to assist with any discomfort.

Why Should I Come To Your Office?
All Photo facials are performed by a certified Para-Medical Esthetician. Safely improving the quality of your skin’s appearance is our number one priority. We offer competitive rates and are centrally located in the Denver Metro area close to many highways.

The Bellus SkinPen® microneedling device is used to stimulate your skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Thousands of precise micro-injuries are created in the dermis, automatically triggering new collagen synthesis without causing scar tissue formation. Microneedling requires little to no downtime and is ideally performed in a series of treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart for optimal results.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Microneedling work?

Microneedling allows the skin’s natural self-repair process by creating new collagen and elastin through microchannels in the skin. During the short downtime, the skin will quickly see improvements in tone and texture and overall appearance. This happens through the body’s quick healing response to rush your own natural growth factors to the thousands of microchannels to heal them quickly with new collagen.

What are the benefits?

Microneedling procedures reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, lax skin, and stretch marks and will improve the appearance of acne scars and surgical scars while adding collagen and elastin to give a rejuvenated correction to tired skin. Whether looking for correction or a refreshed appearance microneedling can address all needs.

Who is a candidate?

Anyone who is looking to refresh their skin or anyone seeking improvement in the appearance of a scar, stretch mark, large pores or fine to coarse wrinkles. Microneedling can be safely performed on all types of skin.

Where can the Microneedling be performed on the body?

Microneedling is customizable with variable needle depth allowing for treatment of various parts of the body, including the face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen and back. Any scars must be at least one year old before starting the correction process with microneedling.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure will take one hour of your time, the first 30 minutes will be used to numb the area prior to treatment, and another 30 minutes to treat the area thoroughly. Add an additional 30 minutes if multiple areas are desired in one sitting.

Does the Microneedling procedure hurt?

The unique design of Bellus SkinPen allows for personalized settings, which makes the treatment very comfortable for most. Topical numbing cream can be applied to make the treatment more comfortable for deeper treatments.

When will I see results?

Many patients notice healthier looking skin immediately. However, the natural repair process of your own skin continues to progress over the course of several weeks. Keep in mind any collagen remodeling process takes place over a length of time. The damage that has occurred over an extensive period of time won’t disappear immediately. You may not see the final result for up to 3-6 months following your final session. Individual results will vary.

How many procedures are recommended?

The number of procedures will be determined by your skin care professional based on your individual procedure goals and the health of your skin. Most patients looking to refresh and rejuvenate their skin should receive a series of 3 treatments spaced about 4 weeks apart. Those looking for a more aggressive correction of scars, large pores, and coarser wrinkles should plan on a series of 6 treatments spaced every 4 weeks. Your provider will develop a maintenance plan tailored to your needs.

Can I wear make-up immediately following a procedure?

Patients typically can resume their normal skincare and makeup regimen 3 to 4 days following their Microneedling procedure depending on the area and type of treatment performed.

Is there anyone who should not use Microneedling?

Anyone who has a history of keloid scarring, scleroderma, collagen vascular diseases, cardiac abnormalities, hemorrhagic disorder or dysfunction, or any active bacterial or fungal infection. Anyone who is being seen by a physician for any autoimmune disorder whose treatment is daily Anti-Inflammatory medications may not have the results desired. In order for the body to produces the collagen to needed to see results, the inflammatory response is necessary.

What is the downtime and what side effects should I expect?

Most patients have some redness/pinkness for 2 – 4 days. Clients will feel sunburnt for the first 12-24 hours, and mild swelling is possible. The treatment area will feel tight and dry in the first 48 hours and post care instructions for proper product application will be provided. Individual results may vary; some may experience light to moderate flaking on day 3 to 5.

Sublative RF Frequently Asked Questions

Sublative RF uses Fractional Technology to give an ablative resurfacing to the skin, with minimal downtime. Sublative RF can be used on the face and neck to correct signs of aging, minimize acne scars, and smooth textural irregularities.


What Does a Sublative RF Procedure Involve?

  • You will complete a brief medical history and form, and consent for your procedure.
  • After careful evaluation, the skin is cleansed to remove any excess oil and debris.
  • The Sublative RF procedure is performed by a Para-Medical Esthetician/Sublative RF Specialist.
  • Uptown Medical Aesthetics uses vinyl gloves and follows all Universal Precautions.

How Does Sublative RF Work?

Radio Frequency Energy (RF) opens minuscule Matrix spots allowing energy to be absorbed into the skin. This treatment is meant to increase collagen production and promote the development of healthy skin cells. Sublative RF produces a noticeable reduction in wrinkles and skin texture, with minimal downtime.

Is Sublative RF Safe?
The Sublative RF is an FDA approved device that is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. This procedure requires little to no downtime, allowing you to return to your normal activities as soon as possible.

What Areas Of The Body Can Be Treated?
Sublative RF can be performed on the face, around the eyes, lips, glabella, and neck.

How Long Will It Take To Notice Results?
Most clients see improvement of the treated area after the first treatments healing time. The skin’s surface will appear tighter, firmer and smoother. Results with the Sublative RF will be most apparent 6-8 weeks following the final treatment. However, the total number of treatments required depends on your skin’s condition.

How Often Do I Come In For Sublative RF Treatments?
Treatments are generally performed at 4-week intervals.

How Will I Feel After The Treatment?
It is normal for the skin to feel warm and sensitive. We recommend SkinMedica TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream (available here at the office), as needed and avoid makeup, anti-aging, and exfoliating skin care products for 48 hours.

What Are The Advantages of Sublative RF Compared To Other Treatments?
Traditional ablative resurfacing techniques require an extended recovery time. Sublative RF technology creates a controlled skin injury to maximize correction in the areas of treatment. The skin around the points of entry remains intact resulting in an accelerated healing process and a reduction in downtime. The downtime is significantly less than the traditional CO2 laser resurfacing.

Who Cannot Have Sublative RF Treatments?
Our office does not treat individuals who have been taking Accutane in the past 6 months. A test spot may need to be performed for individuals who have been taking oral medications which cause sun sensitivity or thinning of the blood. We cannot treat individuals with Lupus, MS, pacemakers, skin cancer, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and individuals with cardiovascular problems. We can not treat any area that has been treated with dermal fillers for 6 months after the injection.

Why Should I Come To Your Office For Sublative RF?
In our office, your privacy, safety, and trust are of the utmost importance. We are passionate about our quality of services and we care about our clients. All treatments are performed by a Physician Supervised Sublative RF Specialist who has worked in the medical profession. We offer affordable prices and are centrally located in the Denver metro area, close to many major highways. Our business has been in operation since 1997.

How Do I Improve and Maintain My Sublative RF Results?
We recommend periodic maintenance treatments once a series has been completed. As with all non-surgical or surgical techniques, results will last longer by following a skincare regime prescribed by one of our Product Specialists.

Does The Treatment Hurt?
During treatment, clients may notice a warm, tingling sensation followed by a rubber band snap, a result of energy being absorbed by the skin. Overall, the Sublative RF is tolerable.
