I don't have pale skin. In fact, I easily tan and my tan can lasts for a very long time. My first mistake was getting chemical peels five years ago. It left my cheeks with horrible scars that made my cheeks darker than the rest of my face. I used Obagi for 5 years and although it lighten the... READ MORE

Here is my nightmare... I had 3 IPL treatments on my face without incident and 2 on my chest with great results. The last IPL done in Sept. by the Doctor as the nurse got another job was horrific. 2 appointments were changed as I was told the machine was broken,,,,then after being "fixed" I... READ MORE

I'd like to start posting these here so people can see the process if it worsens or improves. I will fill in the details of the story later. Currently trying different moisturizers and routines. Getting big pores towards the centre of the forehead. Almost time to consider bangs I think, though I... READ MORE

I didy photo rejuv laser on sat, today is Monday here in Australia.it did hurt a lot for me for an hour my face was hot and burning. The pain left after couple of hours.my freckles darkened quickly. The only question I have is that I have tiny pimples or bumbs where I did the laser. Is that... READ MORE

I had a Cellulaze procedure 4 months ago which left me with three dark spots on my legs where the incisions were made. Today the doctor used IPL to zap the three spots and it hurt like hell. I still feel the spots burning a couple of hours later. Supposedly the spot is supposed to scab over and... READ MORE

So....I always had great skin, but lately (espically after my second child) my pores were more noticable, I had more brown spots then I like and I wanted to wake up and have beautiful skin and go, without the use of makup. I have been to Dr. Seaver before for other produces as well as just IPL.... READ MORE

I had ipl for some minor spider veins and mild rosacea on my nose and cheeks. My skin is now covered with orange peel texture that continues to spread daily. I am also developing many small wrinkles despite the fact that i have to constantly keep moisturizer on my face. I would love to cry about... READ MORE

I work in the IT field at a hospital and had a tattoo on my left arm, down by my wrist that I wanted removed. I went to Advanced Cosmetic Surgery to have the procedure done. I am very happy with the results so far. I will not lie to you it does hurt more to have it removed than to have the... READ MORE

I had the worse laser treatment experience at Dr. David Thao's office (Woodbury Plastic Surgery). After spending over $1200 my face is permanently scared and I have severe hyper-pigmentation due to the laser treatments I endured at Woodbury Plastic Surgery. The lack of customer service I...

I've had IPL photofacials done in the past and never had this type of reaction. I saw this esthetician last year for an IPL and micoderm and results were good. I had an appointment with this individual on Tuesday and was shocked at the results! My face felt like it was on fire after IPL was over... READ MORE

I have been doing glycolic acid treatments (30%) on my face and neck for about five years (once a month during the winter) and using Neostrata facial wash and lotion irregularly during the winter months as well. I did do it occasionally on my hands and chest, but clearly I should have done it... READ MORE

It was not painful at all, I went for redness on my nose from an old rhinoplasty 8 years ago. veins grow bigger after that procedure and it causes swelling! So far so good except for that bad headache next day! I have 3 scheduled. Doctor was great! clean office and nice receptionist. I bought a... READ MORE

I have laid in the tanning bed and sun a lot in my 20's and 30's. Unfortunately, last year I laid in a tanning bed with a facial tanner and when I got home after the second time of tanning I had a very dark spot on one of my checks and across the top of my lip. I went to Dr. McFadden's office... READ MORE

I wanted clearer skin to hide my freckles and blemishes, I had paid for a special buy 3 get the 4th free. I completed 3 sessions, they went good got rid of a lot of blemishes. I just had my last one yesterday this is the result of it, never happened with any of the others and im freaking out and... READ MORE

I am 46 years old, fair complexion, and am really starting to see the effects of sun exposure. I've been doing peels but decided to give IPL a try. Although it's painful, I am happy with the results and have scheduled two additional sessions. My side effects: redness that calmed after the... READ MORE

Its only midly uncomfortable (and not bad at all if you get numbing cream). I've received numerous facial and chest IPLs over the years. I have only gotten 1 on my chest in the past (I have freckles/brown spots, cherry angiomas, broken capillaries, etc.) - basically I have a lot of sun damage,... READ MORE

Pros: good for clearing sun pigmentation on light skin people. Can be performed by well trained non-medical staff (so no extra fees). No down time (skin looks a bit dirty for a week but not really noticeable). Tends to even out skin texture as a side benefit. Safe and relatively painless. Cons:... READ MORE

I had IPL done in Glasgow just over 18 months ago and the results have been devastating. I have suffered with dark circles after having my first child 8 years ago but apart from that I've never worn make up in my life and always got complimented on my skin. Having been successfully treated by... READ MORE

So this was my first ipl photofacial. To briefly update you all since January first I have had two microderma pen treatments (with microdermabrasian a few days prior each pen treatment) I love my results so far and plan on more dermapen in the future. One other area of concern are my freckles... READ MORE

I am 34 years old and have fair skin and have had three IPL treatments. While the results are by no means 'dramatic' I can tell my skin has fewer dark patches. I've attached pictures of post treaments #2 and #3. The treatment itself is kind of intense but not painful. The pulse of the laser... READ MORE
