I had ruined my skin with too much sun and solariums. I was covered in messy pigmentation/freckles completely. I went in for one session of IPL resurfacing on arms/back-shoulders/chest and while it was very painful, and recovery a few weeks, it was worth it! Unbelievable results and all... READ MORE

Two years ago I went to a doctor to have some brown spots removed. She suggested IPL and said I would need five sessions, thirty days apart. That not only would it get rid of brown spots but make my skin look 10 years younger. My sister had it done and she said it helped rid her of brown spots... READ MORE

I just got home a little while ago from having my first ipl treatment done. It cost $600 for a 3 treatment package at my dermatologist. I have fair skin with many freckles as well as dark spots on my cheeks and im only 21. I have read plenty of reviews on here and was nervous about the procedure... READ MORE

Let me put this out there, I made it to 3 out of 4 ipl sessions. It was a very comfortable experience, no stinging, no burns, no rubber band snapping sensations, the office was great. Explained worse case scenario it may not work, best case scenario skin will look great. I browned on my sun... READ MORE

I got IPL laser on my arms yesterday in Canada. During the procedure it didn't really hurt a whole lot, kind of like a hot elastic band. With the arms there is alot of area and it is thin skin so close to the end I just wanted it to be over with. About 10 minutes after she was done it started to... READ MORE

But i did it... walking out of the office The Sun hit my face and i just felt as though i was down at the beach all day... i had a 20 min drive... READ MORE

I have had IPL several times. I looked online at videos and read several articles, and people always talked about how they had to have damage in order to get results. I had some on my face, and honestly, I did not see much in the way of results. I had some reduction in redness, but no sloughing... READ MORE

I went to an mdspa in the Palm Harbor to receive IPL to get rid of my visible blood vessels on my cheeks in Mid November. I'm 37. Unfortunately, the PA did the area near my eyes as well though I didn't request it. I had swelling for about 7 days total, mostly around my eyes. I had a... READ MORE

I went in for my first IPL treatment today. I paid 1/3 of the cost of a set of three, because that's how they do it. The RN (Stephanie) explained that it will hurt, that I'll see my sun damage get darker and then about 7 days after the skin will fall off revealing perfect skin underneath. I... READ MORE

I had IPL done about 3 times after my first pregnancy. I had it done for brown and red spots (sun damage) and for melasma. I was very happy with the results at first. My skin looked great and then over a period of about 4 months, I started loosing more and more fat from my cheek area which left... READ MORE

I have adult acne and can't tolerate strong acne creams combined with the extremely dry Las Vegas climate. My dermatologist suggested accutane but I didn't want to make the drying worse, so I started researching laser. I did research online and decided to see a cosmetic dermatologist. I went in...

I am a 32 year-old Caucasian female. I decided to try IPL on a spot between my upper lip and nose following a large, white bump that had appeared there when I caught a cold in May 2011. I was told by a pharmacist that it was a case of the herpes I virus and gave me some antiseptic for it, which... READ MORE

I'm very concerned with damaging my face so this decision was not taken lightly, it was after much reading, research and continuous rosacea outbreaks that i even thought about doing this. i called them few times and they were actually rude on the phone believe it or not but i went on 2 seperate...

In 2009, I went to this Dr. for treatment for melasma. Long story short, they recommended IPL. We conducted a test spot and it went well. The next appointment, I got cold feet and wanted just the melasma spots treated. She insisted I would be happier with the whole face. The pain was awful and I... READ MORE

It went ok. A few weeks ago the technician there put on 3 layers of chemical peel instead of the ONE that I was supposed to have gotten and as a result, I was housebound for days with redness/dryness/surface sores. It healed ok but I DID raise a bit of hell about being treated improperly and... READ MORE

My certified dermatologist performed this on me 2 days ago. It was difficult to research leading up to the procedure because he kept calling it IPL. However, based on some of the reviews, this can't be the same process, but I could not find anything called BBL (broadband light). I don't... READ MORE

2 years ago (8/08) I had IPL laser treatment to remove freckling on my chest at a "Medical Spa". The tech. apparently did NOT know what she was doing and I was severly burned. I now have (2 years later) underwent a Melanage peel, a TCA peel and some micro dermabrassion etc all in attempts to... READ MORE

Pros: ended up with good results at a good price Cons: the treatment caused 1st degree burns. I'm a 35 year old who has long been self-conscious about the redness and age spots on my chest/décolleté area. After years of contemplating IPL therapy to correct this, I finally decided to... READ MORE

Had IPL treatment 11/18/11 (purchased thru Groupon). Terrible burns about 1 inch long all over face and neck. One month later 95% gone on face, but the ones on neck are still there. Be very careful when considering this treatment. READ MORE
