I suggest doing IPL treatment first, waiting 4 weeks apart then doing chemical peel/microdermabrasion, wait another 4 weeks and doing IPL again. You want the skin to heal and recover between treatments. It also give the skin time to exfoliate and have sun spots flake off  so it doesn't interfere with heating pigment so soon. 

Best of Luck
