Hi All, I hope you make it this far down the comments!! I had IPL yesterday on my face, yes, even after reading the horror stories on here... I am a male, 39, blond and blue eyes. Fitz 2 skin. I have had two previous goes with a VPL (Variable) laser with great success. I have got... READ MORE

I had a total of 5 IPL photofacials 3 with one lady and at the first place I went and 1 with another lady there. I didn't get any results with the first 3 treatments but with the last one I finally saw some results. It all depends on the esthetician that you use. The last one at the first... READ MORE

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...

I've been receiving IPLs since around 2009, when I was in my late twenties and noticed pretty bad skin discoloration from a combination of outdoor and (a few) indoor tanning sessions, with very pale skin--see first photo before IPL treatment. Was even worse than it appears: I even had dime-sized... READ MORE

I have suffered of redness for years, due to broken capillaries and acne scarring. Nothing i've tried beforehand has helped. I did lots of research and decided the best thing for me would be some type of laser. So I had my consultation on 07/14/2015, and that same day they said they could... READ MORE

Suffering from red cheeks and a red nose, I was motivated to get relief. Having regular IPL in these areas keeps me from having to use pharmaceuticals to treat my condition. It also benefits me by providing tightened pores. I believe my long term use has also slowed wrinkles. I will probably get... READ MORE

I have been getting IPL for the last 20 years to treat my rosacea. The treatments have not only helped my condition but has kept my skin in good health. I feel Judy's experience with how to treat my condition has given me a great piece of mind. She is constantly training and learning new... READ MORE

I had IPL done twice for hyperpigmentation and diffuse redness due to sun damage. I was super happy with the results for the brown spots, it helped with the general redness but I think I would need to have more IPL or a different laser that just treats redness to completely resolve my redness.... READ MORE

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
