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

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

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
