Our Skin Rejuvenation Service
At Rocky Mountain Skin Care Clinic in Westminster, CO, we use an Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to rejuvenate skin and reduce a variety of marks and blemishes. Short pulses of powerful light break up the darker marks and problem areas, so the body can naturally recover and repair over the former blemish. The process is safe and gentle, and can leave you with clearer skin.
How Will This Procedure Help?
- Rosacea Damage
- Sun Damage
- Age Spots
- Broken Capillaries
- General Ruddiness of Skin
- Brown Spots
In addition to removing these, the procedure can aid in stimulating collagen production (making the skin stronger and more flexible) and shrinking visible pores. When you come to the clinic, your individual needs will be assessed and you will receive the treatment you need.
Where can I get Skin Rejuvenation? How long will it take?
Whether the blemishes are 0n your face, arms, legs or torso, the treatment can be used to help remove them. Depending on the severity of the marking and how long it has been on your skin, it may take more time to see the treatment’s full effects. Most clients report seeing results after the very first treatment while the greatest results will start to show within two to four weeks. At its longest, with the most severe blemishes, skin rejuvenation can take up to three to six months.
What is the treatment like? How can I prepare for it?
Though it is non-invasive, this is still a medical procedure. Prior to the treatment, try to avoid tanning the area with either artificial or natural methods, and take special care to avoid damaging or irritating the skin. This is done to avoid unnecessary risk of blisters or burns, reducing your discomfort. Normally, most patients describe a stinging sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band as the worst thing that they feel in consequence to the IPL.
After the procedure is completed, the technician will consult with you and you may be given cold water, anti-inflammatory creams or lotions, or ice packs to help with any potential discomfort. For a period of a few days, there may be the appearance and sensation of a slight sunburn, though this will fade quickly. Sunscreen and extra care is advised for the area in question. After a week has passed after treatment, there should be no signs of discomfort and you can continue on normally, with no blemishes to show for it!
