IPL for sun spots (but I have melasma)?

About 5 years ago I did some laser treatments on my skin, IPL and Genesis. All went well until I went to Mexico and came back with melasma above my upper lip. I have been using retinol and Vivier Vitamin C serum and a skin brightner from SkinTX since then, no hydroquinone. My esthetician is recommending that I do IPL again but only on my sun spots. Is this a good idea since I have melasma issues? Sun spots are mostly on my cheeks. Thank you!
