Should I Get PIXEL, Accent, Filler or a Combination? (photo)

I'm 39, blond, green eyes, 108# (5'1). I've decided on IPL for my sun spots but I'd like to do something to simply keep the elasticity of my skin fresh/youthful looking. I do have some laugh lines & have been getting botox for several years though not nearly as regularly as I should. Aesthetician raved about Accent but doc recommended combo of Pixel & Accent (w/ IPL). Also said he could strategically place some filler. Want the most bang for my $ & time; should I combo P&A 3 ea or do 6 of one?

Hi Zemma,

I would recommend Fraxel Dual (like an IPL on steroids), a combined laser treatment that will lighten your brown spots and improve the elasticity of your skin.  Accent XL is okay for improving skin tone, but today Ulthera is far superior at tightening and lifting the soft tissue of the face and neck.  Good luck and be well.

Ultherapy for tightening of the skin nonsurgically

Thank you for your question. I also recommend the use of retinoic creams to help with skin vitalty, smoothness and luster. IPL will help with the pigmentation and Ultherapy can tighten the SMAS muscle layer and tighten your skin on the face (plus neck if necessary).

I recommend RR Retinoid Repair cream from Kare SKin. 

Read the Ultherapy ebook I have written. It is a free access ebook on the link below.
