Is IPL Photofacial safe for Asian skin?

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.
