Asian skin is especially difficult to treat since it can result in hyperpigmentation after an IPL treatment. Yes, Asian skin can be treated with IPL to help improve texture, tone and pigmentation with great results.
What is important is provider knowledge of Asian skin and experience treating it. Some patients are obviously not great candidates and the provider should be able to rule them out right away, and many Asian patient's are candidates within reasonable settings. Pre and post treatment education is vital for optimal outcomes.
The number of treatments, frequency and settings will all vary depending on the candidate. We highly recommend patients to seek out experienced providers who have knowledge of working with this skin type.
