Wrinkles are one of the most common signs of aging and something that many people want to get rid of when they see them appearing. Wrinkles on the face are most prominent in areas such as around the eyes and mouth and on the forehead. They are a number of treatments available to get rid of wrinkles, amongst which laser treatment is becoming increasingly popular.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) technology is a very effective way to treat small wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. IPL laser treatment is usually referred to as a photofacial. The reason for this name is that in addition to treating wrinkles, IPL is also great for giving the skin a clearer, more vibrant and more youthful appearance. IPL can also be used to treat common skin issues such as brown spots and rosacea and is used to improve the skin tone in general.
Laser treatment vs Botox
When it comes to treating wrinkles on the face, many people are interested in Botox but are put off by the idea of getting multiple injections and are worried about getting a frozen look to their face.
Although both treatments can be used to treat wrinkles on their face, it’s not a case of either/or. Botox can be very effective at treating lines on the forehead as well as lines around the mouth and eyes. Whereas laser treatment in the form of IPL photofacials is most effective at generally improving skin tone and getting rid of more discreet wrinkles.
Some of the key benefits that IPL laser treatment provides includes –
- Little risk
- No downtime
- Reduces wrinkles
- Improves the skin tone
- Can treat acne scarring
- Reduces sun damage
- Stimulates new collagen growth
- Used to treat rosacea
