Had first (and last) treatment 2 weeks ago. Face covered in welts and black zebra-like stripes immediately afer treatment, second degree burns on chin and jaw line. Now have pink and tan stripes on face. MD doesn't know what to do. (Actually won't acknowledge anything is wrong). Any... READ MORE

I had some tiny veins on my face, and a bit of Rosacea. The treatment completely eliminated one larger vein I hated in particular that was on my cheek, and it appears that most of the small veins are gone.I did get a couple of tiny blisters around my nose that are almost healed now, and a...

It was really free, yah, because I originally had a micro laser peel in early December 2008. After the procedure (several weeks), I looked like I was ran over by a tire leaving a pattern on my face from the tools used. To make it worse, I am a model and now I am completely insecure about my face... READ MORE

I started developing two tiny light brown freckle type spots on my cheeks and doctor recommended Fotofacial. I received IPL treatment on my face, during which I was in agonizing pain. It felt like I was being burned by a hot Iron. The technician kept saying it is painful but that is how it... READ MORE

Well, day 19 and and I can say without a doubt that for me, it was not worth it. there are two areas that look like scarring from the process.... ughhh....    Most importantly, if you are planning on having this process done know going into it that you will need more than one treatment...

IPL has worked great for me in the past. I had a red mark and broken capillary that I got IPL on a few years ago and it removed all of the redness. I have now gone back to my nurse to treat another broken capillary with IPL under the eye and I have had very little downtime, with only 2/3 days of... READ MORE

I started noticing some brown patches appear on my face as summer was coming to an end as well as broken blood vessels around my nose. I made an appointment with Dr Groff because he had mentioned the IPL before at one of my Botox appointments. Dr. Groff has been doing my Botox for the last 3... READ MORE

I have had two IPL treatments with Dr. Linell, and other IPL treatments elsewhere, and I am always happiest with my results from her. I'm not sure why, but I am always more comfortable during the procedure at her office, and the results are beyond my expectation each time. I literally feel... READ MORE

I have rosacea, acne and very oily skin, with some but not a lot of broken blood vessels, a fair amount of PIH, and several areas of hyperpigmentation that are light brown. I am late 40's but have few lines and have always been complemented on looking a good 10 or so years younger than I am. I... READ MORE

I did this at the same time as Botox. Essentially, I had been thinking of IPL for a while, but the forehead wrinkles which freaked me out spurred me into a bit of a mini-makeover. I'm a redhead with a very fair complexion, and lots of freckles. I opted for face, neck, and decolletage.... READ MORE

Hi Everyone. I really wasn't going to write this review but since Eva (The community Manager) suggested I do to help others, here I am. Now I honestly refuse to add more negative stories to the internet and just leave it like that, so I will explain my story, then what I am doing to help heal..... READ MORE

I kept getting cuts and ingrown hair down there from shaving and trimming and I decided no more! I started my IPL treatment in late December and have so far had six treatment $175 CDN each with taxes. We estimated I only needed one or two more to get complete hair removal. So far the results...

I was looking to improve my skin tone and rid my face, neck and chest of the red veins and brown spots. The first procedure was a bit uncomfortable due to my fair skin, I am a natural redhead. Dr Fabi and staff did excellent job of making me comfortable during the procedure and easing my... READ MORE

I went to a place I was very satisfied with for a broken capillary on the end of my nose. VOILA!! Poof be gone. It was a miracle! I was looking like Rudolph and at 29 didn't like that very much. So a couple more zaps here and there for small red "tiny" red dots was cheap..$75. No biggie. I had... READ MORE

When I grew up in Southern California we didn't have SPF higher than 4 and we didn't know about how damaging the sun was, especially to fair-skinned blondes like myself. Now that I'm in my 50s I went to a cosmetic dermatologist to fix my brown spots and sun damage. I have received a couple IPL... READ MORE

In August 2013, a month after I turned 28, I was convinced by a medical esthetician with 14 years of experience to try IPL for some mild hormonal acne (which was temporary anyway btw..) and some mild sun damage (mostly freckles). I had very good skin overall and generally started visiting her... READ MORE

I had one IPL treatment when I was 21 years old and experienced the uneven texture, facial fat disappearing over the course of a year, orange peel skin texture, and more. I was told by the doctor that it was impossible for IPL to do this, but you can actually see the line where the laser went,... READ MORE

Dr. Harvey Jay treated my rosacea about 1.5 months ago and I'm very happy with the results. I have suffered from Rosacea since I was about 13 years old. Every time I went to a doctor, they would tell me there was no cure for rosacea and prescribe me something that just ended up irritating my... READ MORE

I have had rosacea since my teens. On and off for about 10 years I've gotten IPL and my skin always reacts well. I'm 32 now. I definitely noticed a reduction in redness and tiny thread veins after doing IPL. Unfortunately they always come back, but only after about 6 months or one year. I... READ MORE
