I am Asian. I had a few scars on my face from an accident 15+ years ago. I played a lot of tennis and loved to travel and being outdoors, and I rarely wore sunscreen. My skin paid for it. Even though the scars healed very nicely, they browned over the years. On top of that, I had age spots and... READ MORE

I have had 5 or 6 IPL treatments. I've gotten it on my face with GREAT results every time. I feel much more confident without makeup and have a pretty nice complexion now. I also had some treatments on my chest, and on my second chest treatment, the gal said she treated me very aggressively... READ MORE

I just had my 2nd IPL treatment today and it was just as positive as the 1st treatment 4 months ago. My background: Caucasian-looking (fair with yellow undertones), with Native American, French and German in my heritage. My aesthetician told me today that the IPL machine she uses has no...

On Nov. 13 I went into Oleigh Medspa for an IPL treatment for a few brown spots on my arms. The registered nurse who performed the treatment assured me that she had done it before and knew what she was doing. During the treatment I felt discomfort, which she said was normal. A day after my... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Laurie Casas' office in Highland Park for my procedure. Maureen Spahr RN performed my procedure. Maureen was extremely thorough and carefully explained the procedure before she began. I have had 4 treatments have noticed a significant difference in the quality of my skin( sun... READ MORE

I would NEVER recommend IPL EVER. I had it once on a very low setting. It left very visable squares, deep rooted lines, zig zag lines all over face and chin. The more years pass, the more the damage comes to surface of face. I'm surprised so many doctors are not more ethical and can speak... READ MORE

I am a middle Eastern, I've done IPL on my legs and it worked well with the hair, then I got back to laser hair removal because its more effective but the worst issue associated with IPL and Laser hair removal is Pigmentation. Always make sure that the temperature is suitable and never handle... READ MORE

I have very fair skin. Years of sun exposure left me with old-lady freckles and spots on arms and hands. You could see repeated exposure--some spots visibly in different layers of skin. I was self-conscious about wearing short sleeves. I wore self-tanner to make the lighter ones less obvious.... READ MORE

I am 42 years old and although I feel and look much younger, I felt that my skin's youthful glow and brightness had dissappeared and was hidden behind a mask of darkness that clearly came from too much sun exposure. After having the IPL treatment done (only 1 time), I see much brighter skin... READ MORE

Bought a deal for 3 ipl facials from a reputable med spa. I was very nervous, especially after reading some of the horror stories on here. I'm 36 and fairly pale. I had freckles as a child which have turned into sun spots as I've gotten older. I also have a few broken capillaries on my cheeks... READ MORE

A previous doctor told me I wasn't a candidate for any laser Rosacea treatments until the flare ups were under control. But, they never seemed to be under control, so I moved on to another doctor who was able to get my Rosacea to go into remission. While we were treating the rosacea, I asked her... READ MORE

First I have to say I have very pale skin, and my spots are light brown, not dark - which apparently are harder to remove I now know. I really don't know if they are sun spots or age spots or hormone spots or what kind. They began appearing in my late twenties and I'm now in my early thirties. I... READ MORE

I had crepiness around my eyes and lips; overall my skin had few wrinkles. I used to have people tell me I looked five years younger than my real age and felt that I had aged rapidly in the last few years. I spen $375 for an IPL photofacial. Afterwards, my eyes were dry, my skin was dry and I... READ MORE

If you watch the news at all I'm sure you've already seen Dr. Van Dyke, she is the go-to expert when it comes to skin in the Phoenix area and nationally as well. I would not trust my skin to anyone else. As I near my 30s I've been more into skin care and what I could do to treat some minor... READ MORE

I have gotten IPL twice so far for acne scarring. Immediately after the treatment my whole face feels like its on fire for a few hours, but after that my face just becomes very dry and flaky for several days, but this is all in the process. When it clears up, the scars are visibly clearer,... READ MORE

I have just had IPL treatments with a local Hairfree Clinic in Victoria Park and have walked away very disappointed. I wasn’t promised permanent hair removal but was told that because I had dark hair on light skin it would work well for me and to expect at least 80% reduction. Told it would... READ MORE

My name is Frank & I had my 1st IPL treatment when I was about 67. My skin didn't have any sparkle lol & I read about IPL & sought out dermatologists in NYC. Just a web search. I came across Dr Lisa Zdniak had a consult & she suggested IPL right away. I liked her felt... READ MORE

I have been having IPL treatments at Dr. Gidon’s office for many years. I have some rosacea so it removes any red veins that I develop and stimulates collagen so my skin stays rejuvenated. I sometimes have some brown sun spots on my hands and the IPL fades them also. Dr. Gidon always reminds... READ MORE

I have developed some itchy red bumps 1 weeks after my 2nd E-light hair removal treatment. Nothing happened for the 1st treatment, and it is the same lady doing it. She told me she even lowered the energy a little for the 2nd treatment. Nothing happen after the treatment but only after 1 week... READ MORE

Immediate results and even more with a follow up treatment. I bought a $90 Living Social IP Photofacial voucher for Advanced Skin & Laser Center, Mesa, AZ. I take care of my skin but decades of living at the beach and being active in the outdoors left me with big, brown spots and lots of... READ MORE
