I had my IPL performed at Dr. Palm's office. I am extremely happy with the results that I am seeing. The procedure went really well. I was given a numbing cream before hand, and had no discomfort. My face was slightly warm for a few hours afterwards. The entire treatment took maybe 15-20... READ MORE

Had 4 IPL treatments and I believe the last one burned me. I now have the orange peel texture, crinkly skin, micro scarring, lines, a new scar where pigment crusted off and previous scar looks worse. Total nightmare. When I went to show the dr who performed the treatment she had the nerve to... READ MORE

I have facial generalized redness and flushing ever since I was 15 years old. I have no acne and no facial veins. I had minimal redness on my forehead that wasn't nothing major unless I squinted my eyebrows you can see a slight shadow! I have no chin redness. The major problem is my cheeks and... READ MORE

Sun spots on upper lip (light sun mustache), couple of spots on cheeks, nose and spot on forehead. Have been using Obagi hydroquinone for 6 months (couple days a week) and over last month high quality vitamin C, E and A mixture, spf of 35 every day. Before this month sunblock of 15-20 spf....

I am a white 37years old. I just had a little redness on my cheeks, the technician convinced me that IPL treatment would get rid of that redness and that my skin would be smooth as a baby. It actually did the complete opposite. My skin is blotchy uneven toned and burning still after 1 month now... READ MORE

In March 2014, after years of struggling with redness and flushing from rosacea, I finally took the plunge and had an IPL session at Sandon House Clinic in Preston (UK), which was recommended to me because it is staffed by qualified nurses. I was very nervous about treatment having read many... READ MORE

I had my first IPL in March 2011, second in April 2012 and last in May 2014. I am shocked at how aged and haggard looking I have become. I can think of no other reason for the fat loss in my face - which steadily progresses until my face became haggard and old looking. New dents appear every... READ MORE

Hi! I chose Dr. Chernoff & Associates, in Santa Rosa after doing some local research. I have wanted to do an IPL for a while after reading some of the reviews on this site, so I scheduled my appointment. It was a beautiful building located in Downtown Santa Rosa near a wonderful neighborhood I... READ MORE

I had scheduled 5 sessions to get rid of sun and acne marks on my face. I had been told IPL boosts cell production & rejuvenates. The first session cleared skin marks. After the 2nd, I noticed I had a weary look & as the days went by my cheeks sunk in, my skin became saggy, wrinkled & lumpy . Beware READ MORE

She is an eye doctor but does skin lasers on the side to make more money. I would be very careful if you go to this practice. I went in for an IPL laser treatment and it turned out to be bad experience. It was painful and I got a bad burn and now have scars. I never went back. Would not... 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

Like many others, I baked in the sun in my youth. Now at 48, I have the dark spots and lines to prove it. AVOID TANNING! But I digress. I researched my options and local plastic surgeons before deciding on IPL to correct the dark spots and broken capillaries on my face. I cleansed my face... READ MORE

I had ipl for some minor spider veins and mild rosacea on my nose and cheeks. My skin is now covered with orange peel texture that continues to spread daily. I am also developing many small wrinkles despite the fact that i have to constantly keep moisturizer on my face. I would love to cry about... READ MORE

Just like so many others on here my once pretty skin has been ruined by a series of 5 ipl treatments. And just like so many others I found out the hard way that lasers are RISKY to say the very least and can and in fact DO cause damage. Regardless of what these so called doctors say ( or don't...

I've noticed some things on my face that I've been covering up with BB or CC cream. I was interested getting remove of them. Things like sunspots, a few freckles, red spots, broken capillaries, a small vein, enlarged pores...No one product takes care of them all but I've been reading about the... READ MORE

I see Ashley for IPL/BBL and have gotten great results. After 3 treatments my skin looks entirely different and I can't wait to finish my last two appts so my skin will look transformed. My sister also sees Ashley for this and only needed 3 appt to achieve her results, because she takes much... READ MORE

I received my first IPL nearly 18 months ago, and did it right before summer. I didn't know to get numbing cream, and I plowed ahead despite the seasons heading into high sun. Big mistake. My spots faded off, but came right back because of sun exposure (even with SPF). This time, I did it... READ MORE

I am 20 years old and have pale skin with a ton of freckles, I bought a membership of 24 sessions so I could have the ipl done on multiple parts of my body. I did both my arms on Friday. I had gotten a test patch done a week before so I knew how it felt, it was bearable and only burned for an... READ MORE

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
