IPL for freckles?
Hi Koizora. Although an IPL treatment is a possibility, we would reach for a q-switched laser instead. Q-switched lasers are much more powerful than IPl and can lead to permanent (rather than temporary with IPL) removal of the freckles.
Because q-switched lasers are designed to removal birthmarks and tattoos, they very easily treat freckles. You can click on the link below to see patients that have been treated with q-switched lasers for freckles and age spots.
We are located in Los Angeles and offer free consultations.
