My name is Frank & I had my 1st IPL treatment when I was about 67. My skin didn't have any sparkle lol & I read about IPL & sought out dermatologists in NYC. Just a web search. I came across Dr Lisa Zdniak had a consult & she suggested IPL right away. I liked her felt... READ MORE

I have been having IPL treatments at Dr. Gidon’s office for many years. I have some rosacea so it removes any red veins that I develop and stimulates collagen so my skin stays rejuvenated. I sometimes have some brown sun spots on my hands and the IPL fades them also. Dr. Gidon always reminds... READ MORE

I have developed some itchy red bumps 1 weeks after my 2nd E-light hair removal treatment. Nothing happened for the 1st treatment, and it is the same lady doing it. She told me she even lowered the energy a little for the 2nd treatment. Nothing happen after the treatment but only after 1 week... READ MORE

I had a brown spot on my face and wasn’t sure what it was. My family doctor referred me to Dr. Gidon who said it was an age spot. I had one treatment with IPL and after a week it peeled and the spot was gone. It was such an easy treatment and I’m very happy with the results. Very worthwhile... READ MORE

Immediate results and even more with a follow up treatment. I bought a $90 Living Social IP Photofacial voucher for Advanced Skin & Laser Center, Mesa, AZ. I take care of my skin but decades of living at the beach and being active in the outdoors left me with big, brown spots and lots of... READ MORE

Just had IPL yesterday afternoon on face and neck (no chest sun damage) and it's now the morning after. Definitely have the coffee ground look with lots of dark freckling. Can't tell what the final result will be, but I think the coffee ground effect is what's expected and will help reduce... READ MORE

I had IPL done just over 3 years ago. It was at Spa Aethetica in Orange, CA. At first things went well, then one day I went for treatment and got badly burned on my neck and chest. They said it was normal and everything would be alright. I'm not alright, I have scars all over my chest and... READ MORE

My twin sister and I are turning thirty this year. We have struggled for years with very ruddy skin, including red and brown 'sun' spots. I attribute our uneven skin tone to running around without a drop of sunscreen though the better part of our childhoods. Anyone with truly ruddy skin... READ MORE

I've had this twice on my lower arms, once on my upper arms, twice on my face, once on my chest. I'm 42, Fitzpatrick type II , however, I never tan. I have some age spots, freckling, but not as much as many individuals my age because I wear sunscreen. On my arms, I got this... READ MORE

I recently had an IPL treatment at Baumann Cosmetic and Research Institute and I am so happy with the results. The P.A. Chris , did my treatment and he was so nice and answered all my questions. All of the broken capillaries are gone and the brown spots are gone as well ! I will do another... READ MORE

IPL has helped my face with hyperpigmentation. I have melasma, and dark circles so I was told to try the IPL to help. They also call it a photo facial where I usually go. Although it does hurt( I actually think it is one of the more painful procedures), I do think it helped with my... READ MORE

I'd been shaving at least my face once a day for the last 18 or so years and finally plucked up the courage to give this a go. Even though I knew it would be expensive, my main reluctance was that I'd heard so many stories about people being burned and scarred as a result, as my skin is rather... READ MORE

I've had mild rosacea for years, but lately it had been getting worse, so I finally decided to bite the bullet and get it treated.The Finacea cream could only do so much, and I couldn't even drink a half a glass of wine without looking like Mrs. Claus. I plan to have at least three more... READ MORE

I had a couple large sunspots/brown spots on my cheeks from sun exposure and have tried many lightening creams for years with no luck. 2 IPL treatments a few months ago and the sun spots are ALL GONE. I paid $150 per treatment in So Calif. to a board certified MD. I am 48 years old and very... READ MORE

So...my bf and I both have major scarring from cystic acne. I still have cystic acne, my bf took acutane and is acne free. The treatment took approx 1 Hr and felt like getting a zapping tattoo. After about 5 min into it I felt the extreme heat. My driving gave me a special cooling instrument, it... READ MORE

I wanted to feel and look younger. READ MORE

I don't know what everyone else is complaining about. I had IPL done on my armpits, legs and vaginal area (entire area). I used to have an ingrown hair problem BIG time, I had red bumps, razor burns, and discoloured skin. After only 4 IPL treatments on my legs, they look photoshopped. They are... READ MORE

Went to a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon fir st two treatments. He had several heimslef. looked so good after 2 was glad I didn't pay for the series of 5. Top of cheeks were rock hear and swollen after the second one cus they turned up the juice since the lazer wasn't hurting. Took a week... READ MORE

Works well for my ruddy complexion. I don't know if I have rosacea but I am definitely prone to redness and dilated capillaries. I get this about every 4-6 months. With every treatment there are a few capillaries that it 'kills off' and I can see them shrivel up. Most however just... READ MORE

Completed 3 IPL treatments and am very pleased with the results achieved. The first session is a shock to the system, but the following sessions were much less intense feeling. Results from the first session were noticeable by the third week and the following sessions have further enhanced skin... READ MORE
