IPL Intense Pulsed Light - Denver, CO
Our practice focuses on all cosmetic and reconstructive needs of our patients. Dr. Ladner is an expert in all surgical procedures and non-surgical options.
Dr. Ladner offers photorejuvenation treatments with a broad spectrum pulsed light that is transmitted through a continuously cooled applicator, gently placed over the skin. The handpiece can change the range of wavelengths, optimizing it for different applications and skin types.
The light penetrates the tissue and is absorbed to treat vascular lesions and hyperpigmentation. The body's natural processes then clears the debris, giving the skin a more even and youthful appearance. This enables effective treatment of a broad spectrum of conditions, including vascular and pigmented lesions, skin photoaging treatments and hair removal.
An Nd:YAG laser is a solid state laser capable of producing a near-infrared wavelength that penetrates deep into the skin and is readily absorbed to treat large blood vessels and vascular lesions such as telangiectasias, hemangiomas and leg veins. In addition, the Nd:YAG Laser can treat at a more superficial level; by heating the subcutaneous skin (in a non-ablative manner) it stimulates neocollagenesis which improves the appearance of facial wrinkles.
