Should I consider IPL?

IPL is an option
Thanks for your question. IPL is definitely a good option for removing dark spots. However, there are other options including Pico and Yag lasers. Medical grade skin care and facials can also help. Keep in mind that your skin type, medications, location of pigment, and various factor may influence the choice of treatment. In our clinic we recommend performing a test patch before proceeding with laser treatment or IPL. Best of luck!
While IPL can work great for the proper candidate, the most important initial step is to choose an experienced and expert board certified physician who can offer multiple options to you. Once you find a physician who understands your goals and objectives, then he or she can help guide you with the treatment program.

Should I consider IPL
Hello, thanks for your question. It is very hard to answer your question without photos. IPL works well for brown pigmentation, but we avoid to use for dark skin. I recommend you to start using daily sunscreen and sun protection and have consultation with a dermatologist who does laser treatments.
IPL and dark spots
Treating dark spots depends on a lot of factors including your skin type and texture. IPL works for patients with very light skin. If you have darker skin then chemical peels or other treatments may be more beneficial. Please consult an expert in cosmetic dermatology. Best, Dr. Green
