Wrinkle Treatment in Colorado Springs, CO

Your body changes as you age, including your skin. Your skin loses collagen, elastin, and moisture as you get older. When you laugh, smile, or squint, fine lines, and wrinkles begin to form around the lines of expression. Your eyes are one of the first areas of your face you may notice fine lines and wrinkles forming. If you are looking to reduce fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, our eye doctors at Vision Institute in Colorado Springs, CO can help.

What Causes Wrinkles Around Your Eyes

In addition to aging, there are several factors that can lead to fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, including:

  • The pressure of wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses
  • Repetitive insertion and removal of contact lenses
  • Unprotected skin exposed to sunlight for long periods
  • Not wearing sunglasses, causing you to squint

 Icon™ uses optimized light technology to target and destroy the underlying causes of common aesthetic concerns. Uneven skin tone is a common aesthetic problem we all notice as we age, especially if we have an active lifestyle out in the sun. After years of unprotected sun exposure, you will notice brown spots, freckles and sun spots. You may also notice unwanted vessels around your nose or rosacea on your cheeks. These common concerns can now be removed, and you can reveal your glowing complexion with skin revitalization.

Skin revitalization is ideal for reducing the appearance of pigment on your face, chest or hands including age spots, sun damage, freckles or birthmarks. In just a few quick treatment sessions you will see a reduction in the appearance of brown spots and vessels leaving you with a more even skin tone and beautiful looking skin.  

IPL for Dry Eye Disease

Here at the Vision Institute, we walk alongside you through your treatments, building a customized treatment plan for your eye care, with follow up appointments in between to ensure we are using the right tools in our kit to get you the relief you need. Originally IPL was used in Dermatology offices to treat a skin condition called Rosacea, in 2002 studies identified that patients were noticing a relief in their dry eye symptoms, since then there have been many studies performed, and doctors across the world have started to implement IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) services in their clinics.

IPL is for patients with dry eye, blepharitis, meibomian gland dysfunction, and ocular rosacea. It’s a light therapy that allows us to treat underlying conditions in the secondary layer of skin, the dermis. IPL improves meibomian gland function by coagulating the tiny blood vessels surrounding the lid margin, so that inflammatory factors are no longer released. By improving the function of the meibomian glands, you eliminate inflammation and less evaporation of the tear film, leading to healthy symptom free eyes! Say bye to those eye drops!

Is it painful?

IPL could be considered uncomfortable by some patients, but it is not typically regarded as painful. Patients describe the feeling as if a rubber band was snapped on their skin. The light emitted is also very bright, which could be an issue for patients with light sensitivities.

How many treatments will I need?

Each case can be different which is why we recommend you schedule a free consultation with our laser-certified aesthetician. Call us at (719) 559-2020 x124 to schedule today!

Tempsure Envi and Icon IPL

Using Cynosure's advanced technology, Vision Institute helps patients to see better and look younger. The Icon delivers intense puled light (IPL) to reduce unwanted vascular lesions and the Tempsure Envi uses radio frequency (RF) to gently and comfortably raise the temperature of skin around tear glands, helping to reduce their obstructions.

The treatments are effective, reliable, and safe. As an added benefit, the treatments reduce inflammation and trigger the body's rezones to produce collagen, tightening the skin and improving lid function as well as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Both Icon and Tempsure Envi are safe, effective procedures that address the underlying causes of dry eye symptoms and deliver aesthetic benefits.
