Aside from skin cancers and precancerous lesions, chronic sun exposure makes our skin sallow, discolored, red, and wrinkled. Photorejuvenation is the process of using lasers and light to correct all of these signs of sun damage. With a series of intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, the brown spots are lighter. In addition, the blood vessels are diminished and the texture is smoother. With minimal discomfort and downtime, your skin improves with each treatment on the face, chest, and/or arms.
Don't grapple with how your facial skin looks because of dark spots, sun damage, or fine lines. Summerlin Dermatology can offer you a skin analysis at our Las Vegas, NV office to see if you qualify. An IPL photofacial is a skin rejuvenation treatment for adult men and women with hyperpigmentation and wrinkle issues. IPL may not be an invasive procedure, but it can be very effective and produce great results. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Reuel Aspacio will send intense wavelengths of light that heat your skin just enough to ignite the natural regeneration process and boost collagen production. Over time, you should see healthier skin with an even tone and less dark spots with our Syneron or Venus Versa laser systems.
"Awesome! They helped clear up my eczema! I've been struggling with eczema since I was 5 years old but it's gotten worse over the past few years, so coming here I was hesitant because I've gone to a doctor about my eczema and was prescribed something that burned and was very discomforting, after that experience I've just dealt with it and tried natural remedies. But I am so glad I decided to try this place out! My prescription was not pricey they made sure of that and my eczema was clearing up within 2 weeks! There was no discomfort using it and after a month it seemed to be completely cleared up. I am so grateful for them! I haven't seen my skin this clear in so long! Thank you!"- L.L. / Google / May 24, 2019

"Awesome Doctor - Hi. I just left one review but found the need to leave another. The staff at summerlin dermatology is awesome. From Jose and the girls at the front to my great coordinator Trish Hoffman. Every time I feel the need to get refreshed, and believe me at my age (65) its a lot I call the friendly staff at Summerlin Dermatology and Trish calls me back within minutes to schedule me in, when I can fit in. She is the greatest. She assist Dr. Aspacio before he comes in to inject botox and fillers I need. Very knowledgable, she always knows what I need done and never tries to upsale me. She gets me prepared for Dr. Aspacio and listens to what I what and makes suggestions for me which are always the right ones. I love Trish, she is the best and between the two of them I feel confident and revived when they are through. Dr Aspacio, magic fingers, is the best injecter I've been to. He is always LAUGHING AND smiling and he prepares you by marking his spots beforehand to prepare for the injections. A very knowledgable, professional doctor, I also come in on the skin side to get checked once a year to make sure nothing is cancerous, and he is efficient and doesn't leave any parts unchecked. I have been coming here for 5 years, if not longer now, and highly recommend his conviently located office on W Sahara, which is easy to get in and out off. The whole staff, is awesome and friendly and tries to have you leave satisfied. I love you guys, and Especially Trish and DR. Aspacio, who giggles all the time. Thankyou Yvonne"- Anonymous / Vitals / May 07, 2019
"Awesome. I highly recommend a visit to this office - First. As soon as you enter Dr Aspacio's office you are greeted with smiles from all of the front staff. Jose and the girls are always friendly and down to earth. I have been coming here for a few years now and have always been treated quickly, professionally and with a smile. I usually get injections by Dr. Aspacio so his coordinator Trisha Hoffman always handles my needs. She is so upbeat, pleasant and caters to my needs. She never pushes treatments on me I don't need and listens to what I really want. Trisha is absolutely the greatest and very knowledgable in her profession. Now Dr Aspacio, is another thing. He giggles, and laughs every time I come in. He is the greatest injector, always gentle, especially since My face is sensitive to needles, and at my age (65) I need a lot. He looks at your face, marks where you need it and uses his gentle hands to inject the fillers. I love these two, they are quit the team. I recommend Dr Aspacio as he is absolutely wonderful, from entering his office to leaving. And Trish is the greatest. She takes care of everything that you need so when you leave you feel satisfied that you got your monies worth. I highly recommend a visit to this office. Dr Aspacio is also very thorough in inspecting your body for any cancerous moles or sun issues which I get checked every year, on the dermatology side. There is also a skin esthetician for any of your skin treatments, like obagi. I will continue to go toothier office which is conviently located on W Sahara and easy to get to. Thankyou you guys for all you do. Yvonne"- F. / RealSelf / May 07, 2019

IPL works deep within the layers of your skin to improve many complexion concerns (especially sun spots and brown lesions) with little or no downtime. Candidates for IPL at Summerlin Dermatology may have a combination of concerns with their skin, including sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation (brown spots), wrinkles, rough texture, large pores, flushing, freckles, melasma, age and sun spots, or broken capillaries. Dr. Aspacio will assess your skin to see if you are a candidate for IPL at your private consultation.
IPL is performed inside our Las Vegas, NV office in about 20 – 30 minutes in our minor procedures room if performed alone. To start the photofacial, the technician will clean and dry the skin to be treated before covering your eyes with special laser shields. The IPL is administered using a handheld device that passes over the skin while emitting pulses of laser energy. While most patients will feel some discomfort during the IPL, it is generally tolerable for the short treatment time.
What to Expect
There is no downtime associated with a photofacial treatment, but you will leave your appointment with your skin a little inflamed and red. This will decrease on its own as the day continues — it can be concealed with makeup if you want. Summerlin Dermatology advises patients keep an ointment on the skin's surface to decrease irritation and speed healing. It also helps to take an anti-inflammatory medication to ease swelling. Over the course of several days, the sun damage and other irregularities that rested under the skin will come to the surface and then begin to flake off. It's critical to keep your skin protected from the sun at all times after a photofacial treatment and to not pick at your skin. While you should see some visible results after the first session, your skin will attain the best results after several IPL sessions. Dr. Aspacio recommends approximately 3 – 6 treatments performed around once a month at Summerlin Dermatology.
