What Are the Side Effects of PPx Laser?

Hello. I'm considering PPx to reduce facial freckles, is this a permanent solution and will the effects indeed be noticeable straight away?
After researching, it states that PPx patients are LESS likely to suffer side effects, but I can not find ANY related side effects to PPx.
Any new technology is hard to find a lot of information on and is why we want to wait for at least 6 months to find out what really is happening. Thank you for your question and good luck.
PPx is a form of IPL and side effects are possible
Any light therapy can cause side effects if not used properly.
Results are usually seen after 5-6 weeks and ususlaly multiple treatments are needed.
When you are exposed to the sun, freckles will come back.
If PPx treatments are done at too high a power setting or too agresively, the skin can be burned which can lead to scarring--this is true with any light or laser or IPL therapy.
Complications are caused by the user-not the machine.
