Will IPL work on age spots?
There are age spots and there are other reasons for dark spots on the face . Look at my other IPL responses.
Patients with darker skin types can have very good results after IPL.. Don't worry so much about the device - the treater is the key to your success!
Fillipino skin may not get the best results from IPL treatments.
You should proceed with caution. IPL PhotoFacials work best on those with light skin, hair and eyes. You could try IPL if you're fair skin-colored, but you'll likely require more than 4 treatments. It's possible that you may not get an adequate result, or your brown spots could get worse. So go for several consultations before you get started.
