Will IPL treatments help treat age spots on your hands?

I am 61 years young and I’m starting to see more and more age spots, mostly on my hands. I don’t really mind them, but I’m exploring my options. Would it be possible to treat them with IPL laser treatments?

We like to treat age spots or sun spots on the back o the hands with IPL or BBL with a series of 3-4 treatments.  Significant lightening of the spots is usually attained.  If we still want improvement after the IPL of further lightening or textural improvement - we recommend the Halo laser treatment.
