It's unclear from your question as to whether or not the white patches were there before or after the IPL treatments.  If they resulted from the IPL treatments, they will most likely resolve over time.  Also if the IPL treatments included your beard area (if you are male), and you have seen diminished hair growth, you could be seeing untanned skin that appears more white.
