Is IPL Good for Redness Caused by Sun Damage

I have a lot of redness on my upper chest (decollete area) and wrinkles from past sun damage. Is IPL the best treatment for this condition? If not what do you recommend?

IPL for sun damage can be a very effective treatment to reduce redness, dilated blood vessels, brown spots and texture changes. Several treatments (usually 4-6) are needed, approximately 1 month apart, and often performed in the fall and winter. In experienced hands/clinics, this treatment is both safe and effective.
