Fraxel or IPL or Other for Age Spot Removal on Eastern Asian Skin?

I have been reading about side effects on asian skin from the various types of laser treatment available. Which one is effective on age spots and pore tightening without the risk of hypo pigmentation post-treatment?

Fraxel Laser

The laser will be your high risk decision, and using cream like Hydroquinone, Kojic Acid, Retin-A will be lower risk as will be peels.  First try chemicals, then progress to lasers.  We start people with an IPL if they are a candidate.  Have an evaluation with a Board Certified Dermatologist or Board Certified Plastic Surgeon first.
