Fine Lines and Brown Spots

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Lexington, KY

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial is a laser light treatment that targets pigment issues, such as fine lines and  brown spots, sun damage, red spots, and Rosacea. The bright light passes through the epidermis, drawing out the pigment producing cells and dispersing the uneven pigment. IPL Photofacial can be used on the face, neck, chest, shoulders, back, arms, legs and just about anywhere else. Photofacial is also an effective treatment for broken veins and spider veins. According to Stanford Medical University, the long-term effects of Photofacial actually reverse the signs of aging.

What Does IPL Photofacial Treat?


Ultherapy is a non-invasive, non-surgical technique that uses ultrasound and the body’s natural healing process to tighten, tone, and lift skin. In addition, it’s the first and only ultrasound energy device for aesthetic purposes to be cleared by the FDA with a non-invasive face “lift” indication. One treatment enhances and repairs the collagen in the skin naturally. Because of the deep tightening that is possible with Ultherapy’s powerful tightening effect has been shown to give patients a more defined jawline, a tighter neck, lifted brows, and a more open look to the eyes. Treatments take around 30-60 minutes, and there is no recovery time.

Ultherapy is generally used in these areas:

Ultherapy helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and tighten loose or sagging skin. An ultrasound treatment, it is purported to be an effective alternative to surgery and Botox. Ultherapy works by creating a mild amount of discomfort and the low-dose ultrasound energy helps lift and tighten skin on top of your scalp, around your eyes and lips, forehead, cheeks and neck – all without ever going under the knife!

Vivace RF Microneedling

Vivace Microneedling treatments, now offered at Hourglass Aesthetics, combine three different skin rejuvenation methods into one treatment responsible for producing unrivaled results. This technique uses Collagen Induction Therapy, microneedling, and radiofrequency to treat all layers of the skin at once.
The three procedures combined can help to significantly reduce fine lines and brown spots, scarring, wrinkles, skin texture,  loose skin in the jowls and neck, and overall skin quality.
Any one of these treatments can produce excellent results by itself. However, when these techniques are combined into one therapy, they can treat each layer of skin individually, resulting in a threefold increase in efficiency. The Collagen Induction Therapy conditions and softens the skin; the microneedling penetrates the epidermis and pushes Collagen Induction Therapy into the tissue to provide therapeutic effects while stimulating natural regeneration. The radiofrequency treatment heats deeper dermal layers to promote other regenerative functions.


At Hourglass Aesthetics, we use the FDA approved SkinPen by Bellus Medical for microneedling, the first FDA cleared microneedling device. It causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate your body’s natural healing process, while minimizing cellular damage. The result is effective remodeling of scar tissue, while keeping the overall structure of the skin intact. Best of all, SkinPen works to rejuvenate your skin by boosting collagen production, which in turn reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and elevates the overall texture of your skin.
