I had a total of 5 IPL photofacials 3 with one lady and at the first place I went and 1 with another lady there. I didn't get any results with the first 3 treatments but with the last one I finally saw some results. It all depends on the esthetician that you use. The last one at the first... READ MORE

I got IPL in Busan, South Korea fall 2008. I wanted to fade my freckles and correct photoaging. My freckles totally disappeared, but the doctor didn't do my eyelids so I still had freckles there. Was a little red for about an hour and after that felt fine. My skin looked much clearer and... READ MORE

You can see from the picture how my skin was really discolored! Partly this was from some acne that I had picked at (I started getting acne at 28! mostly from stress I think) and also you can see a lot of freckles (this photo was taken in August 2009 and I had been out in the sun a lot that...

I just had IPL form a derm to reduce broken capillaries and redness from sun damage/rosacea. It did hurt a bit. It felt like a tiny needle prick each time. The nose are was very sensitive. Might be worth the anesthesia if you are sensitive to pain.It burned afterward for about 3 hours and looked... READ MORE

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...

Having very fair skin, I burn very easily. As I've gotten older (currently 28), I started to notice little brown spots developing under my eyes and realized this was likely due to my sun exposure over the years, and decided I should do something about it now before it gets worse. I got my... READ MORE

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 have received IPL treatments from several places, but the one that has worked the best is at a local plastic surgeon's. Prior to treatment, I have to have the numbing cream on skin face 30-40 mins. I get zapped with the IPL laser and my face looks sun burned for a few hours. The dark spots... 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
