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

Just like so many others on here my once pretty skin has been ruined by a series of 5 ipl treatments. And just like so many others I found out the hard way that lasers are RISKY to say the very least and can and in fact DO cause damage. Regardless of what these so called doctors say ( or don't...

I've noticed some things on my face that I've been covering up with BB or CC cream. I was interested getting remove of them. Things like sunspots, a few freckles, red spots, broken capillaries, a small vein, enlarged pores...No one product takes care of them all but I've been reading about the... READ MORE

I see Ashley for IPL/BBL and have gotten great results. After 3 treatments my skin looks entirely different and I can't wait to finish my last two appts so my skin will look transformed. My sister also sees Ashley for this and only needed 3 appt to achieve her results, because she takes much... READ MORE

I received my first IPL nearly 18 months ago, and did it right before summer. I didn't know to get numbing cream, and I plowed ahead despite the seasons heading into high sun. Big mistake. My spots faded off, but came right back because of sun exposure (even with SPF). This time, I did it... READ MORE

I am 20 years old and have pale skin with a ton of freckles, I bought a membership of 24 sessions so I could have the ipl done on multiple parts of my body. I did both my arms on Friday. I had gotten a test patch done a week before so I knew how it felt, it was bearable and only burned for an... READ MORE

Having very fair skin, I burn very easily. As I've gotten older (currently 28), I started to notice little brown spots developing under my eyes and realized this was likely due to my sun exposure over the years, and decided I should do something about it now before it gets worse. I got my... READ MORE

IPL has worked great for me in the past. I had a red mark and broken capillary that I got IPL on a few years ago and it removed all of the redness. I have now gone back to my nurse to treat another broken capillary with IPL under the eye and I have had very little downtime, with only 2/3 days of... READ MORE

I have received IPL treatments from several places, but the one that has worked the best is at a local plastic surgeon's. Prior to treatment, I have to have the numbing cream on skin face 30-40 mins. I get zapped with the IPL laser and my face looks sun burned for a few hours. The dark spots... READ MORE

I started noticing some brown patches appear on my face as summer was coming to an end as well as broken blood vessels around my nose. I made an appointment with Dr Groff because he had mentioned the IPL before at one of my Botox appointments. Dr. Groff has been doing my Botox for the last 3... READ MORE

I have had two IPL treatments with Dr. Linell, and other IPL treatments elsewhere, and I am always happiest with my results from her. I'm not sure why, but I am always more comfortable during the procedure at her office, and the results are beyond my expectation each time. I literally feel... READ MORE

I have rosacea, acne and very oily skin, with some but not a lot of broken blood vessels, a fair amount of PIH, and several areas of hyperpigmentation that are light brown. I am late 40's but have few lines and have always been complemented on looking a good 10 or so years younger than I am. I... READ MORE

I did this at the same time as Botox. Essentially, I had been thinking of IPL for a while, but the forehead wrinkles which freaked me out spurred me into a bit of a mini-makeover. I'm a redhead with a very fair complexion, and lots of freckles. I opted for face, neck, and decolletage.... READ MORE

Hi Everyone. I really wasn't going to write this review but since Eva (The community Manager) suggested I do to help others, here I am. Now I honestly refuse to add more negative stories to the internet and just leave it like that, so I will explain my story, then what I am doing to help heal..... READ MORE

I kept getting cuts and ingrown hair down there from shaving and trimming and I decided no more! I started my IPL treatment in late December and have so far had six treatment $175 CDN each with taxes. We estimated I only needed one or two more to get complete hair removal. So far the results...

I was looking to improve my skin tone and rid my face, neck and chest of the red veins and brown spots. The first procedure was a bit uncomfortable due to my fair skin, I am a natural redhead. Dr Fabi and staff did excellent job of making me comfortable during the procedure and easing my... READ MORE

When I grew up in Southern California we didn't have SPF higher than 4 and we didn't know about how damaging the sun was, especially to fair-skinned blondes like myself. Now that I'm in my 50s I went to a cosmetic dermatologist to fix my brown spots and sun damage. I have received a couple IPL... READ MORE
