I had just a few brown spots on my face. I am fair and freckly and after one treatment, my spots appeared much darker and new freckles surfaced. It also seems dryer. Now I will be very shy of all laser treatments and will never do IPL again. I hope creams help lighten the dark spots... READ MORE

I paid $500 for one session and had my whole face done - about 45 minutes. It felt like someone was systematically burning my face with cigarettes! I expected my face to be a terrible red mess afterwards, but it was not too bad and the redness completely subsided within the hour.Although my... READ MORE

I'm 40 and I have had a lot of sun damage and skin imperfections intesified by three pregnancies. My Doctor made me like "like new" with botox and IPL treatments. She is extremely professional and a very caring doctor. The results are fantastic! READ MORE

I am 43 years old, and am a landscaper. Until I was about 37 I almost never wore sunscreen, or a hat. My face, neck and chest had quite a bit of sun damage- dark patches, and broken capillaries.

I had some very minor burning sensation that lasted about 1 hour followed by some minor darkening of my spots, but no visible change.

I had no problem with the first 3 IPL treatments in fact my skin felt lovely. It was only after the last one that i had a problem with the eye area and my eyes looked sunk which accentuated the puffy area or maybe its the other way round. I had the treatment for some very slight broken... READ MORE

I IPL twice for freckles on my face. The first treatment worked like a text book case where the freckles went dark and then went away.The second time, the operator increased the energy (telling me after the treatment) in which I developed lots of scabs. Now the scabs are gone, I am left with... READ MORE

I have been having monthly IPL treatments for 6 months on my forehead for sundamage. My first 5 treatments went well, but on my 6th treatment the laser was turned too high and my forehead got burnt.

I am a light-skinned Asian female. I had very nice experience with my IPL provider. After inital consultation, she understood my concerns of the long-term, permanent side effects from IPL gone-wrong. She gave me 2 times of "test spot" with 7 day of interval. I just had my first IPL... READ MORE
