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

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

Doctors said this would open my eye area to look bigger and brighter, lift my cheeks and make lips look fuller by naturally rebuilding collagen. Dr said all her patients LOVE this procedure; I did not love it, it's very over-priced. I had 4 FORMA treatments (1 per week). After first treatment... READ MORE

Hello! I've actually had this done in Melbourne, Australia at Total Face Group, I cannot fault this procedure. Just had my third IPL last week and I am so happy with the results!

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 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...
