Perhaps. An IPL Photofacial is not recommended for brown or dark skin, as it is known to potentially cause hyperpigmentation for darker skin tones. The ideal candidate for an IPL treatment is a person with lighter skin; however, in some cases medium skin tones may also be a candidate. The darker the skin tone, however, the more at risk the patient is for developing pigment from the procedure, so its important to go to a provider that you trust to determine whether or not you are an ideal candidate for this treatment. If you are not determined to be a candidate, your provider may recommend a different service to address your skin concerns.
