What is IPL Photofacial?
The IPL (intense pulsed light) Photofacial is designed to target areas with excess pigmentation, which may appear as age spots or uneven skin tone. The treatment is also recommended for rosacea. IPL works by targeting cells that contain pigment and breaking them down. Ageless Innovations offers IPL Photofacial treatments for the face and body, such as the arms, legs, shoulders, and other areas that are prone to pigmentation issues.

What Are the Benefits of IPL Photofacial?

- Sun damage
- Brown spots and age spots
- Redness and red spots
- Spider veins
The treatment requires little to no downtime.
Is IPL Photofacial Right for Me?
Some skin types should not be treated with intense pulsed light. Our master aesthetician determines if this is the best option for you during the consultation.
How is IPL Photofacial Performed?
We may recommend three to five treatments to completely eliminate the irregular pigmentation in your skin. Each treatment is performed using the ALMA 540 handpiece that emits high-intensity light energy. The energy only affects the pigmentation cells and no other tissues. For facial treatments, the procedure takes about 45 minutes. Other areas may require more or less time.
How is Spider Vein Treatment Performed with Intense Pulsed Light?
The energy that is emitted from the ALMA 540 handpiece is effective for treating spider veins. The energy produces a thermal effect on blood cells inside the damaged veins. The heat causes the vein to break down and be absorbed by the body.
What is IPL Photofacial Recovery Like?
Your skin may be red and slightly swollen after the treatment. There is no downtime involved, and you can use makeup after the appointment.
