Springs Aesthetics offers laser procedures for men and women in Colorado Springs, South Denver, Castle Rock, and other areas of Colorado. Laser procedures use the innovative thermal energy of cosmetic lasers to correct common flaws in the skin, such as laxity, wrinkles, and scars. We also offer laser hair removal as an alternative to shaving and waxing.
What Are Laser Procedures?
Laser procedures include treatments that rely on the thermal effects of lasers to address aesthetic concerns. Cosmetic lasers are safe to use on various tissues of the body because each laser operates at a specific wavelength that is only absorbed by certain tissues.
A laser treatment for the face is only absorbed by skin cells and does not affect nerves, muscles or other tissues. Similarly, lasers that are used for unwanted hair are only absorbed by hair follicles. The surrounding skin is untouched.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Procedures?
A laser skin treatment is considered non-invasive or minimally invasive, so you have little to no downtime after the treatment. The results may be immediate in some cases, but typically results improve gradually over a few weeks. Laser procedures can be used for a variety of concerns, such as:
- Sagging skin
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Age spots
- Excess hair
- Scar Improvements
- Boosted results with PRP
Can Acne Be Treated with Laser Procedures?
Laser treatment for acne is an effective method for balancing out the skin and destroying the bacteria that causes infections and blemishes. We also offer laser treatment for acne scars to help blend the scars with the surrounding skin. Active acne outbreaks actually do very well with radiofrequency resurfacing.
How Are Laser Procedures Performed?
Most of our laser procedures are performed on the surface of the skin. The laser energy is applied in short bursts, and you may feel a slight sting that lasts a few seconds each time the laser is administered. We divide the treatment area into small sections to help you feel relaxed during the treatment.
What is Recovery Like After Laser Procedures?
If you do have downtime after your laser skin treatment, it will only be for a few days in many cases. We can explain what to expect for your recovery during the consultation.
How Long Will the Results of Laser Procedures Last?
How long the results of your laser skin treatment last depends on the type of treatment and amount of correction that is needed, as well as your own genetics. Some patients that take care of their skin after their series of 3 treatments can see improvement for 3 or more years. Dr. Burroughs will discuss these details during the consultation.
