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...

First, Id like to start off by saying that I did not believe a laser treatment could remove my horrible sun spots......I was wrong. I knew it made me feel very uncomfortable when I left the house without makeup on because I had all these brown spots on my face, mainly on my cheeks. So I did some... READ MORE

I have been at his office at South Beach few times Only because i really didnt have another option at that time. He is very snobby and seen to be above everyone else. I have the feeling that he cared more about my money , but he is good, my treatment worked, but I WILL NEVER RECOMEND HIM. Also... READ MORE

I never thought at 29 I would be worrying about sunspots! This treatment was perfect. The laser brings those years of sunspots to the surface with no downtime! I was surprised at how much damage you can actually have at a 'young' age! The procedure was quick, easy, and painless! Within a... READ MORE

Hello- I have moderate rosacea and have just received an IPL treatment. This is my first treatment. I did not have much if any sun exposure the first 24 hours, however, I did have indoor lighting exposure on the second day because I have very bright lighting in my bathroom (300 watts in a pretty...

I underwent 3 sittings of IPL on my chin. I didn't have that many hair just a small patch not more than 2x2 cm. after the third sitting the doctor said I don't require further treatment. But over the years the hair started to grow more and increased in area. And now the condition is so bad that... READ MORE

Dr. Laxmeesh Mike Nayak and his Nurse Practitioner Racquel Frisella performed Intense Pulse Light (IPL) treatment on me a few months ago. From the moment I sat in the chair, both Dr. Nayak and Racquel were very welcoming and assisted me with every question I had for them. I felt so comfortable... READ MORE

I had four treatments in attempt to lessen the red shaped V on may neck (Poikiloderma of civatte). The dermatologist recommended it and the procedure was performed by an esthetician. While to procedure did temporarily smooth my skin, the end result is not worth it. As other reviews indicate,... READ MORE

Just had this done yesterday. Had a wonderful experience and the procedure was almost painless. Staff informed me of every step they were taking and very concerned about my comfort level. My face is a little red but I can already see that the broken blood vessels on my face have been... READ MORE

I have a lot of sun damage, with many brown spots and broken capillaries. Dr. Cockerham suggested I get Intense Pulsed Light Laser treatments (IPL). It took care of the uneven pigmentation, many of the brown spots and some of the broken capillaries. I was very pleased with the procedure results... READ MORE

Excellent service - great team - One of the techs just kept everything going smoothly. Dr Kim is highly skilled and attentive. I love the fact that I can text her directly and she responds quickly. The IPL is working and those terrible brown spots and rosacea marks are all clearing up -... READ MORE

I had a very satisfactory outcome. My skin did not turn red but I was a little more tender initially. The freckles get darker at first and then start to fade. My skin looks brighter. You will feel pricking sensations while the procedure is performed. But I already see a noticeable... READ MORE
