At Colorado Plastic Surgery we understand that our patients may desire a freshening of their skin’s appearance or may have concerns about skin imperfections, however you may not be a candidate for or have the time for a more invasive skin laser resurfacing treatment. The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial treatment effectively reduces the signs of skin aging and treats various surface imperfections without the hassle of downtime.

How IPL Photofacial Works

The IPL Photofacial, or IPL laser, emits a laser light that travels through the superficial layers of the skin to interact with the deeper layers of the skin, the dermis. Pigmented areas of the skin in the dermis absorb the light where the light converts to heat causing a breakup of the pigmented cells. These cells then slough off of the surface of the skin over a following few days.

IPL Photofacial is commonly used on the hands, face, neck and décolleté, however it can effectively treat any area of the skin.

The IPL Photofacial also repairs broken capillaries and treats facial redness. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the blood and collapses the unwanted capillaries. The IPL laser effectively treats:

  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Freckles
  • Broken Capillaries
  • Age spots and sun damage

Your IPL Photofacial Appointment

During your initial skin care appointment, our Medical Aesthetician will perform a skin analysis and take photos using our Reveal skin photo system to analyze underlying photo damage to determine your treatment plan based on skin type and desired results. A series of 2-4 treatments are typical required to achieve desired results and the skin rejuvenation process will continue for 7-14 days following each treatment.

PRACTICE UPDATE RE: COVID -19 SITUATION View Update Virtual Consultation



Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time.

We will also be offering virtual consultations throughout this period. We have always performed them for our out of town patients, which we have plenty, but we are now extending this service for local patients as well, in accordance with the recommended social distancing.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.

Sincerely, Dr. Slenkovich & Staff of Colorado Plastic Surgery Center
