AGE SPOTS + VEINS + FINE LINES
FotoFacial™ IPL treatment for Age Spots, Fine Lines, & Veins
FotoFacial™ is an effective, safe treatment for reducing or eliminating fine lines, age spots, and broken capillaries on the face. The best part? There is no downtime after treatment, so you can easily return to your normal routine.
FotoFacial™ Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Skin Rejuvenation in Asheville
Photorejuvenation., or FotoFacial™ Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), is an advanced skin treatment that helps clear undesirable pigment and vessels from your complexion, revealing clearer skin that you’ll be proud to show off. It can quickly and easily remove undesirable age spots, sun damage, and blood vessels from the face and body without surgery and with little discomfort or downtime.
Our FotoFacial™ system also can smooth very fine wrinkles in the same treatment that addresses pigment issues.
What are the benefits of Foto Facial IPL Skin Rejuvenation?
The benefits you’ll see after a series of IPL treatments (and sometimes just one treatment) typically include:
- Softened appearance of age spots
- Smoother skin texture
- Reduced appearance of redness
- Less visible broken capillaries
- Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
Not only will you see these results, but you will not have any downtime for recovery after treatment. Photorejuvenation is a nonsurgical approach to skin renewal that can transform your looks for the better, all while allowing you to return to your normal activities right away.
Most patients require 1-2 treatments for broken capillaries, and 2-3 (or more) for age spots. Your treatment needs will vary based on the severity of your age spots.
IPL is a safe, effective treatment
IPL photorejuvenation is FDA-cleared, so patients can take comfort in knowing they are receiving a credible treatment option for the removal of pigment and vascular lesions. For some patients, it may take just one non-invasive laser treatment to reveal younger-looking, smoother skin.
Why choose Mountain Radiance for laser skin rejuvenation
Our highly-qualified medical aesthetic providers have had years of experience and advanced training for the use of our laser devices. Our before and after results speak for themselves (see below).
Foto Facial IPL Skin Rejuvenation vs. CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
With multiple IPL treatments (usually 3 – 4), the skin texture visibly improves—much like the results achieved with the same number of fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments.
These two treatments, however, have a key difference: the CO2 laser addresses fine lines and wrinkles better than it does age spots. IPL is the most effective at treating age spots. Further, IPL is the only treatment of the two that addresses broken capillaries and redness.
Unlike CO2 and LightSheer lasers, which use specific wavelengths of light, IPL uses a broad wavelength spectrum, which includes the entire spectrum of visible light.

No, IPL FotoFacial is not painful. Patients report a sensation like a light rubber band popping against their skin as the laser passes over the treatment area.
Expect to wait 2-4 weeks after treatment to see full results; repeat treatments are usually required to reach most patients’ desired outcomes.
Your IPL FotoFacial results are lasting, but the aging process will continue and sun exposure will affect your results. Protect your skin from the sun and tanning beds, and the benefits will usually last about a year or more. Good sun protection habits include daily use of a high-quality sunscreen, wearing UPF-rated clothing, and covering up with a hat when you are outdoors.
Over time, age spots may return, but your skin will continue to have a smoother appearance than it would have without IPL treatment.
The age spots will darken for several days following the procedure. They will then exfoliate, or peel, as the dead melanocytes are pushed out of the skin. This process will typically be complete in 2 weeks, or as many as 3 weeks.
There is no down time after IPL. You may return to work immediately. The spots will darken in 3 – 4 days or less, and for up to 2-3 weeks the pigment will peel and reveal smooth skin below.
If you have age spots on the face, neck, or hands—or if you have broken capillaries on the nose or cheeks—then IPL is an excellent, low risk, relatively inexpensive procedure that will effectively improve your skin tone and texture.
