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

Had a few sunspots zapped. (Cost $500) Way more expensive than any other med spa, but I figured this was done by the doctor himself so maybe that's better. (To be determined.) Staff was super nice, doctor was professional, but not very forthcoming with a lot of things, that I felt I was... READ MORE

I had Ipl and I was burned so badly. I was in a lot of pain during the procedure and had told the technician multiple times during the procedure that it was painful and burning. Immediately after finishing it became clear that I was burned. multiple people came in and tried to assure me that I... READ MORE

I had my 1st IPL and Pixel combo done a month ago. I was very swollen and had CRAZY coffee grounds face and chest for a week.. BUT, after 10-14 days my face and chest was BEAUTIFUL.... I lost 10 yrs just by losing all the sun damage spots. I still have 4 more planned ( spaced out one each... READ MORE

I just finished 2nd treatment. My skin experienced same bad reaction at 1 & 2nd treatment. It was so itchy for 3 days straight, red rush all over my skin. It reminds me when I got tick bite from woods. Doctor gace me an ointment to heal, but it doesn't work! I am still battling violent itchness... READ MORE

Who invented this "advanced technology"? If you want to look years older, have acne-prone skin and discover new wrinkles on your face everyday, then go right ahead and have this treatment. But seriously...save your skin and opt out. Everyone is clammoring for this thing and it's a... READ MORE

I am 34 years old and already had sun spots. I had read in a fashion magazine that the IPL Photofacial laser was having great results. I had tried every bleaching cream known to man and nothing worked so although I was very skeptical I decided to research it. I found a really great deal... READ MORE

I bought a groupon for 1 IPL photo facial. I expressed to the assistant and dr. Siegel my concern about being burned as I had in the past. Both assured me this positively would not happen. Guess what! At least it wasn't on my face! Too soon to tell if the treatment is a success. He said I may... READ MORE

I went to Esana Medspa in New Haven Ct and had my first treatment of IPL done. Im all Irish and have pale skin with some sun damage. Im 29 and after my pregnancy I found that my skin became hyper pigmented and my sunspots became sooooo much worse. I can no longer cover them up and I just hate my... READ MORE

I have been wanting to have something done for my sun spots and damage for a long time and heard about IPL. I have also been reading these reviews, which for the most part, scared the hell out of me with a couple of exceptions. It's very scary having something like this done to your face! I... READ MORE

I decided to have a foto facial done to correct some sun damage I had. I just turned 40 and it was suggested I do the Triniti 3 in 1 series. (1) color correct) (2) firm face (3) matrix. The first treatment was horrible. I felt like I had hot curling iron burns on my face and forehead and had... READ MORE

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
