I went to visit Petra at Dr. Edelstein's office after dealing with a few months of unusual breakouts, drab skin and marks left from the breakouts. I was referred to Petra by a friend but I had previously heard of her a few years before but didn’t take the time to make the appointment. When I... READ MORE

I had IPL done at Chelseaeye And Cosmetic Associates by the great and professional Esthetician Jeannel Astarita for my Hyper pigmentation spots on my face and i see great difference, besides that i have always suffered by the way dark circles around my eyes look, they always make me look tired...

Being very fair and sensitive skin with underlying redness large pores and sundamage I wanted to try a IPL photofacial. I was a little scared reading reviews of inexperienced medi estiticians that used to high of settings on clients but i am so happy with my results!. Sherri At the Bellava... READ MORE

I have struggled with acne, sensitive skin, broken capillaries, enlarged pores, etc since my teen years (I am now 34). After having 2 children I started to notice a lot of small broken capillaries on my cheeks and an occasional cherry spot that I had treated with a vascular laser (I believe)... READ MORE

My neck and chest (in an obvious V-shape where my shirt collars fell) always looked flushed from sun damage and when I was hot or stressed (or had a hot flash), it seemed like the areas would glow! People would ask me if I was ok, and I started wearing turtlenecks and scarves to cover it up. I... READ MORE

So I just got an IPL treatment done. It was not as bad as I thought it would be and it was very fast! There was a light then a zap (like an elastic hitting the skin) It's only been 4 days but I haven't noticed any sloughing off of skin or anything. I have two more to go so we will see. The...

I had several treatments and noticed the benefits right away. I have had redness and brown spots that have bothered me for years and years. They have already begun to lighten after 2 treatments. There was a level of discomfort (not pain) with the laser, but Sherri was very sensitive and... READ MORE

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
