Is IPL Photofacial safe for dark skin?

Unfortunately, no. An IPL Photofacial is designed to help pull up pigment in the skin, which is something that should be avoided for patients with dark skin tones as this can cause hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. Further, putting heat on skin that already has a tendency to pigment will likely only worsen the pigmentation issues. While this treatment isn’t ideal for darker skin tones, there are various other treatment options available that help remove dark marks from black skin safely, such as a series of chemical peels.
