IPL and Brown Spots and Mouth Lines
He told me that IPL would get rid that that and also he could get rid of the wrinkles around my mouth with the IPL. Has anyone done this or know anyone who has?
Seems like a dermatologist would be better than a PS for skin issues, I don't really know. Judging from the results of people I work with, I don't like the results of fraxel or like procedures, and I am scared to death of peels of any kind. And I wonder, if IPL can truly remove the wrinkles around ones mouth, then wouldn't everyone be doing that? I appreciate any input on the IPL. Many thanks and aloha
no way is ipl going to remove the wrinkles around the mouth. you are right to be skeptical. it will certainly help with the brown spots - it is probably the best technology for reducing brown spots, but that's all it can really do. even fraxel is not strong enough to affect the lip and mouth lines. i have had good results with active fx, but it involves some down time - about a week of redness and some swelling.
another thing about ipl is that it can take up to 4 or 5 sessions and the spots can come back. you have to be really careful about the sun afterwards. make sure that you are not suntanned when you go for the treatment - it can burn you if you've had sun exposure prior to the treatment.
hope that helps
