Springs Aesthetics offers IPL photofacials for men and women in Colorado Springs, South Denver, Castle Rock, Pueblo, and other areas of Colorado. The IPL photofacial uses a special light energy to correct pigmentation concerns, such as age spots and sun damage.

What is an IPL Photofacial?

The IPL photofacial uses an intense pulsed light energy source to break down damaged skin cells and stimulate cell turnover. Dr. Burroughs recommends the IPL photofacial for areas of hyperpigmentation or redness, such as what is seen with age spots, rosacea, and sun-damaged skin. The treatment works by affecting cells with excess pigment and breaking it down to be absorbed by the body. Our IPL photofacial also helps with spider veins on the face and broken capillaries, such as what is seen in rosacea patients.

How Much Does the IPL Photofacial Cost?

The cost of our IPL photofacial is based on the size of the treatment area, number of treatments in the series, and the nature of the issue that is being addressed. After your consultation, we can provide more details about your cost. Springs Aesthetics works with CareCredit® and Alphaeon® to offer our patients with financing options for their IPL photofacial treatments and other services.

What Are the Benefits of an IPL Photofacial?

Our IPL Photofacial helps with common cosmetic concerns, such as:

  • Redness
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin pigmentation
  • Broken capillaries and spider veins
  • Rosacea symptoms
  • Age spots and brown spots

Treatment areas are the face, neck, shoulders, arms, legs, neck and hands. We do not recommend the IPL® photofacial for individuals with deeply tanned skin or those with melasma.

What Areas Can Be Treated With IPL?

While the face is one of the most popular areas for treatment, other areas include: the décolleté, neck, hands, forearms, and lower legs.

Can IPL Treatments Improve Dry Eye?

Yes. Certain patients with severe dry eye from oil gland dysfunction (posterior blepharitis) can have significant improvement with eyelid treatments, which loosen and help the oil glands to work better. This issue is very common in patients with rosacea. Typically treatments are done in a series of 3 done every 3-4 weeks then a maintenance treatment every 3-6 months as needed. Dr. Burroughs was among the first in Colorado to provide this revolutionary treatment for dry eye patients. Dr. Burroughs also has dry eye syndrome, and has benefited from IPL treatments himself. They must be properly performed and appropriate eye shields must always be used directly on the ocular surface.
