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...

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

Dr. Harvey Jay treated my rosacea about 1 month 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 skin... READ MORE

I have read a lot of personal stories about the damage IPL has cause many people. My heart goes out to all everyone of them. The physical and psychological damage is devastating. The damage I notice on my face seems different from all that I have read. I am wondering of there is anyone out... READ MORE

I was ingested in evening out my skintone and stimulating collagen. I was left with a square burn mark on my forehead that turned into a dal brown square I have spent the past two years getting rid of it. Retin a or light chemical peels are a way better and much safer option. This also caused... READ MORE

I have had 4 ipl laser treatments - each is about an hour long full face and neck chest area . Each treatment has cost me approx 60 dollars .The treatment has made my skin dewy and glowing. I have not done any fillers prior to treatment as I read that it may interfere with them. I will do two... READ MORE

I had Fraxel 9 years ago and got hyperpigmentation immediately after it - Sun spots appeared in several places on my face and got worse over time. Heard IPL helped but was leery for fear of making it worse. Bought a Groupon for 3 sessions from a reputable salon in Brentwood (Kalologie 360) fully... READ MORE

I had an IPL with Dr. Evdokimow. It went very well. Dr. Evdokimow answered all my questions and explained to me what to expect. He was very patient with me. I was very satisfied of the outcome. the redness of my face (due to my capillaries) disappeared just with one treatment. The pain was... READ MORE

My first session (of 4 in total) with my IPL facial at Dr. Weinberg's office was great! The procedure was comfortable, quick, and I saw some results in my complexion after just the first session. I have a problem with broken capillaries on my cheeks which I have been self-conscious about for... READ MORE
