Can IPL and Photo Genesis Lasers Improve Moderately Deep Lines on the Upper Lip? How Much Improvement Can I Expect? (photo)
Doctor Answers 3
No, IPL and Photogenesis will not remove lip lines. Restylane, Perlane, Juvaderm and Laser Resufacing are all helpful.
Laser resurfacing is the best and most permanent way to remove lip lines. Fillers will help a lot if the lines are not too severe.
Moderately Deep Lines on the Upper Lip...
IPL and Genisis will not typically give you optimal results for "moderately deep lines on the upper lip". Consider a stronger resurfacing laser, Botox, and a filler like Restylane for best results. You will be happier in the long term...
Hope this helps. Good luck.

IPL and lasers to treat moderaly deep lines
IPL and lasers help very minimally with very superficial lines and wrinkles. IPL and lasers are more targeted for pigment issues and discolorations in tone and texture. If you have moderate to deep lines they are absolutely not going to make any recognizable difference for you. For moderate to deep lines in this area you would need to consult a board-certified physician about possible fillers.
