IPL (Photofacial) treatments can be safe but find a very experienced physician
As with many cosmetic treatments, special care and knowledge is vital when treating individuals with darker skin types. Successful treatment of dark spots can be very successful with IPL treatments in Asian skin but the risks for complications are much higher. To help ensure the best treatment possible, I recommend you find someone who is very comfortable and experienced in treating individuals with darker skin types.
I hope my answer was helpful.
