IPL For Upper Lip...

Yes! It works very well.  Make sure you use a Kojic Acid or Hydroquinone cream in conjunction for optimal results and for maintenance.

Hope this helps.  Good luck

Yes, IPL can be used on the lip freckles.

Yes, I often treat lip freckles with IPL.  This works very well in skin types III thru IV.  This should be done with caution in darker skin types V and should not be used in type VI skin.
