I had Fraxel 9 years ago and got hyperpigmentation immediately after it - Sun spots appeared in several places on my face and got worse over time. Heard IPL helped but was leery for fear of making it worse. Bought a Groupon for 3 sessions from a reputable salon in Brentwood (Kalologie 360) fully... READ MORE

I had an IPL with Dr. Evdokimow. It went very well. Dr. Evdokimow answered all my questions and explained to me what to expect. He was very patient with me. I was very satisfied of the outcome. the redness of my face (due to my capillaries) disappeared just with one treatment. The pain was... READ MORE

My first session (of 4 in total) with my IPL facial at Dr. Weinberg's office was great! The procedure was comfortable, quick, and I saw some results in my complexion after just the first session. I have a problem with broken capillaries on my cheeks which I have been self-conscious about for... READ MORE

I'm a 56 y/o male who had benign skin cancer removed on my cheek 7 months ago. It resulted in some broken capilaries. I also had a small degree of sun damage. My PS recommended an IPL Photofacial. I had the procedure done on December 30. It was recommended that I forego numbing cream for a... READ MORE

I have seen Dr. Fabi several times for IPL treatments on my face, neck, chest and hands. My skin looks great. The IPL procedure itself was not painful. There were mild sensations, but they did not hurt. Afterwards, I was able to return to work directly from the office, and I did not have any... READ MORE

I first "discovered" Dr. Swengel a little over a year ago. I initially used him for BBL and skintyte, but then branched out to botox, and other medical non aesthetic problems. He is quite simply caring, compassionate and very competent! His office is like family and they treat you as such. ... READ MORE

I had several procedures; IPL, lip injections, cool+brilliant, for an upcoming event. I spent >$2200 and I no benefit at all! That's not to say there was no before/after difference--there was: I looked worse! I even explained how I'd had my lips done once before that I liked (keeping the basic... READ MORE

I had the IPL treatment for Melasma on my face and it did make my face rejuvinated and lightened up the brown spots tremendously, but now the spots are all back and it seems they have even spread more on my face. I could not leave my house for a couple of days as my face looked like I had spread... READ MORE

I had IPL done by my dermatologist 2-3 weeks ago and the results are amazing. I felt I had to write about it to encourage others to seek this treatment. Post treatment my hands and arms were burning for about 2 hrs. Then the "coffee grinds" look appeared which lasted about 8-10 days. Next... READ MORE

I had 3 rounds of IPL for rosacea when I was 30. The results were amazing. I have always been ruddy faced with sensitive skin when exercising, overheated, or embarrassed. This made a HUGE difference. Broken capillaries do come back with sun exposure, but the overall effect is very much in tact.... READ MORE

Jenny de Ruiter (Cuoso) has been giving me PIL treatments for years. Her professional, caring, knowledgable manner have always made the experience very pleasant. I have my 3 treatments every autumn, after my tan is faded. The clinic offers a special in September for a package of 3 at 10 per... READ MORE

I have had a ton of sun exposure on my face my entire life. At the age of 26 I really started to notice that I was getting premature age spots/dark spots all over my face. I visited Dr. Nayak's office for IPL treatment to rid me of these dark spots and sun damage that was really starting to show... READ MORE

Every year I have a IPL photofacial with Mary at Dr. Doppelt's office. It marks the end of the summer season to have my summer brown spots removed from my face! I have been having this treatment for the last four years. One or two treatments does it everytime. Thanks for melting away the... READ MORE

Treatment for rosacea; it seems to have shrunk my pores, too & I feel less oily; I am not red faced all the time except after the gym and the flushing goes away a lot faster then it used to. I don't feel as hot, either, on my face. I had it done by a dermatologist which I would recommend over a... READ MORE

A virgin to any non-necessary medical procedures I was nervous to try IPL. The staff at Dr. Robert Kessler's office made the experience very easy and I am very pleased with the results. The office environment is very quiet and friendly....like a spa. Dr. Robert Kessler is very friendly and made... READ MORE

After having a very bad experience a couple years ago, I now know that I am dealing with Melasma and not sun spots. There are many different machines on the market that deal with various issues. I do now know that you can not deal with Melasma with IPL or any type of thermal energy. After... READ MORE

I have had my first procedure done. Yes, it did hurt; but not so bad that I won't go back for the follow up procedures. I have spots from sun damage (stupid in my youth), damage from rosecea, light scarring (chicken pox & pre-cancer removed) and changes to my skin just because of age. Overall... READ MORE

So I finished Accutane 6 months ago, went back to my derm and I asked something for scaring and redness, she said IPL laser. I also have ice pick scars but they are not that bad, but they are red. So I did one treatment and a couple days after I started breaking out... why is this? how long is... READ MORE

Having spent all of my childhood and most of my young adulthood in the sun, I am now left with sunspots, uneven skin color and texture and a multitude of “beauty marks”. I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Becker who suggested IPL and Sublative. He was very informative, answered all my... READ MORE

I had a patchy area of red with lots of little veins running through the red. It was mostly on my left cheek. I also had some bigger veins on my nose. I had IPL and the redness is about 50% better. They said I would need between 3 and 5 treatments. I am impressed how much better it looks... READ MORE
