Is IPL a good treatment for aging skin? I’m in my early 40s with some minor wrinkles and sagging and texture irregularities.
IPL is a good treatment for skin pigmentation and vascularity. It may provide some dermal thickening but is not a treatment for sagging, textural irregularities or wrinkles. Another laser treatment such as fractionated carbon dioxide laser was reviewed and is laser a better for fine lines and wrinkles. Sagging tissues may be better treated with volume augmentation using fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm or possibly the patient’s own fat. More significant sagging is better addressed with surgical intervention for instance limited incision facelift.
