I have read a lot of personal stories about the damage IPL has cause many people. My heart goes out to all everyone of them. The physical and psychological damage is devastating. The damage I notice on my face seems different from all that I have read. I am wondering of there is anyone out... READ MORE

I was ingested in evening out my skintone and stimulating collagen. I was left with a square burn mark on my forehead that turned into a dal brown square I have spent the past two years getting rid of it. Retin a or light chemical peels are a way better and much safer option. This also caused... READ MORE

I have had 4 ipl laser treatments - each is about an hour long full face and neck chest area . Each treatment has cost me approx 60 dollars .The treatment has made my skin dewy and glowing. I have not done any fillers prior to treatment as I read that it may interfere with them. I will do two... READ MORE

I had Fraxel 9 years ago and got hyperpigmentation immediately after it - Sun spots appeared in several places on my face and got worse over time. Heard IPL helped but was leery for fear of making it worse. Bought a Groupon for 3 sessions from a reputable salon in Brentwood (Kalologie 360) fully... READ MORE

I had an IPL with Dr. Evdokimow. It went very well. Dr. Evdokimow answered all my questions and explained to me what to expect. He was very patient with me. I was very satisfied of the outcome. the redness of my face (due to my capillaries) disappeared just with one treatment. The pain was... READ MORE

My first session (of 4 in total) with my IPL facial at Dr. Weinberg's office was great! The procedure was comfortable, quick, and I saw some results in my complexion after just the first session. I have a problem with broken capillaries on my cheeks which I have been self-conscious about for... READ MORE

I'm a 56 y/o male who had benign skin cancer removed on my cheek 7 months ago. It resulted in some broken capilaries. I also had a small degree of sun damage. My PS recommended an IPL Photofacial. I had the procedure done on December 30. It was recommended that I forego numbing cream for a... READ MORE

I had several procedures; IPL, lip injections, cool+brilliant, for an upcoming event. I spent >$2200 and I no benefit at all! That's not to say there was no before/after difference--there was: I looked worse! I even explained how I'd had my lips done once before that I liked (keeping the basic... READ MORE

I had the IPL treatment for Melasma on my face and it did make my face rejuvinated and lightened up the brown spots tremendously, but now the spots are all back and it seems they have even spread more on my face. I could not leave my house for a couple of days as my face looked like I had spread... READ MORE

I had IPL done by my dermatologist 2-3 weeks ago and the results are amazing. I felt I had to write about it to encourage others to seek this treatment. Post treatment my hands and arms were burning for about 2 hrs. Then the "coffee grinds" look appeared which lasted about 8-10 days. Next... READ MORE

I had 3 rounds of IPL for rosacea when I was 30. The results were amazing. I have always been ruddy faced with sensitive skin when exercising, overheated, or embarrassed. This made a HUGE difference. Broken capillaries do come back with sun exposure, but the overall effect is very much in tact.... READ MORE

Jenny de Ruiter (Cuoso) has been giving me PIL treatments for years. Her professional, caring, knowledgable manner have always made the experience very pleasant. I have my 3 treatments every autumn, after my tan is faded. The clinic offers a special in September for a package of 3 at 10 per... READ MORE

I have had a ton of sun exposure on my face my entire life. At the age of 26 I really started to notice that I was getting premature age spots/dark spots all over my face. I visited Dr. Nayak's office for IPL treatment to rid me of these dark spots and sun damage that was really starting to show... READ MORE

Treatment for rosacea; it seems to have shrunk my pores, too & I feel less oily; I am not red faced all the time except after the gym and the flushing goes away a lot faster then it used to. I don't feel as hot, either, on my face. I had it done by a dermatologist which I would recommend over a... READ MORE

I have had my first procedure done. Yes, it did hurt; but not so bad that I won't go back for the follow up procedures. I have spots from sun damage (stupid in my youth), damage from rosecea, light scarring (chicken pox & pre-cancer removed) and changes to my skin just because of age. Overall... READ MORE

So I finished Accutane 6 months ago, went back to my derm and I asked something for scaring and redness, she said IPL laser. I also have ice pick scars but they are not that bad, but they are red. So I did one treatment and a couple days after I started breaking out... why is this? how long is... READ MORE

Having spent all of my childhood and most of my young adulthood in the sun, I am now left with sunspots, uneven skin color and texture and a multitude of “beauty marks”. I scheduled a consultation with Dr. Becker who suggested IPL and Sublative. He was very informative, answered all my... READ MORE

I had a patchy area of red with lots of little veins running through the red. It was mostly on my left cheek. I also had some bigger veins on my nose. I had IPL and the redness is about 50% better. They said I would need between 3 and 5 treatments. I am impressed how much better it looks... READ MORE

I wanted to remove one freckle on my face that was on my cheek and was very dark compared to any other freckles. The procedure took only about 15 minutes. It was a little painful but only for a second. The freckles initially got darker but after 2 weeks the main freckle I was concerned about and... READ MORE

I went to a doctor that operates the laser himself, not a technician. His experience and knowledge encouraged me to be proactive and get those darn sun spots removed! I mentioned the broken capillary (on my nose) in the title because it was gone after just few hours. Something I cover up... READ MORE
