Intense pulsed light (IPL) technology that is a great place to start for small facial veins, redness of the face, and for sun-damage discoloration. It has minimal to no downtime, and the device we use at Springs Aesthetics has two hand pieces for different skin types and both have a cooling head making the treatments quite comfortable.

IPL is like an intense bright flash. It is not a laser, and delivers light energy in the 500-1200 nm range, which is the same absorption spectrum as melanin (the skin pigment).

Photo rejuvenation with IPL is very popular ranking fourth in the top five nonsurgical procedures performed by member ASAPS plastic surgeons.

ProNoxAnxiety, including needle phobia, is a reality and even a precluding factor for many patients who undergo surgical or even nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. To address patient discomfort, cosmetic oculofacial plastic surgeon John R. Burroughs, M.D., says he uses nitrous oxide (laughing gas) as a supplement to local anesthesia and oral sedation. He was a faculty member and speaker at a recent cosmetic meeting in Miami, Florida and heard about this device and wanted to bring it to his practice as he cares as much about the patient experience as he does the cosmetic results.

Mixed with oxygen, nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative that, when breathed in, helps people relax, according to the American Dental Association. Researchers Reported on the use of nitrous oxide in 24 cosmetic dermatology patients in 2013. They found lower subjective pain intensity among those treated with nitrous oxide and all but one of the people studied chose nitrous oxide for their next treatment.

We understand that every patient is unique with different skin correction needs, and varying lifestyles.

ThermiVa vs MonaLisa Touch

Women are becoming increasingly more interested in sexual health improvements. ThermiVa and MonaLisa Touch are two of the most well-known non-surgical procedures to address the issues of feminine wellness. Benefits for both include vaginal dryness and vaginal laxity, dysorgasmia, as well as stress urinary incontinence. Only ThermiVa also helps with the external vaginal appearance.


This lady was bothered by the appearance of her lower eyelids and crows feet areas because of the dark hollows under her eyes and the deep wrinkles and the lack of lower eyelid smoothness.

Her options were skin resurfacing alone. At Springs Aesthetics, we use radiofrequency-based fractionated skin resurfacing with Fractora. It smooths and tightens the skin and can smooth irregularities. Fractora resurfacing takes about 5 days to heal and the tightening effect keeps improving over 3-4 months. Touchups can be done at a year. It is an amazing device that can be used on all skin types.

NeckTite is a marked improvement over older liposuction methods and is FDA-approved

Everyone wants to look as healthy and youthful as possible, but such a goal can often be thwarted by genetics, aging, and poor lifetime habits. It's no secret that as one gets older, skin begins to lose its laxity and begins to sag and droop. This sagging can be exasperated by genetics as well as factors within a person's control, such as diet, exercise, and whether or not they smoke. Individuals often look to turn back the clock in order to feel good about themselves, but there's also a financial consideration as well. Studies have shown that people with above-average looks will earn $230,000 more during the course of a lifetime than those in the bottom seventh grouping in regards to appearance. (1) One problem area that most people want improved as they get older is their neck. Fortunately, experienced cosmetic medical professionals, such as Dr. John R. Burroughs of Colorado Springs, have the recently FDA-approved NeckTite device to help contour the neck area by removing fat and tightening skin.
