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...

Staff is professional and polite and thorough. MD Bunkis spends a great deal of time ensuring that he understands your concerns. He is friendly, professional and courteous. The actual procedure was worth it. I do recommended that you get the numbing done beforehand as the IPL laser can be... READ MORE

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 have a number of freckles from sun exposure and simple genetics and I've had IPL treatments in the past that were effective but not quite at a "wow" experience level. Dr. Emer's method and technology outdid all three of the previous treatments combined in results. Within a week, I estimate... 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 have been going to Dr Bowes for over 10 years. I have rosacea, and wanted to work on small wrinkes around my eyes. I now get IPL, Juviderm and Botox. She is an excellent doctor. I always ask for minimal and natural looking results, and I get them!! I have seen her practice grown over... 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

Jeannel is wonderful! She takes her time and is very patient. I have always had freckles and rosacea and after only one treatment, noticed a difference! Although I will need one or two more IPL sessions, I know it will turn out great with Jeannel!! Another great thing about Jeannel is that never... READ MORE

I purchased an online deal for 3 IPL treatments, only because I was unsure if they would work for me. The first treatment definitely did a lot of the work. My face had dark spots and splotches for a week, which means the IPL worked.. then they just disappeared! I just got the third and it's... 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 and had multiple broken blood vessels on my face and spots which made me look older. IPL treatment at Water's Edge Dermatology literally erased all of the spots and vessels. Every says my skin looks so clear and beautiful!! Small amount of pain during procedure. Healed... READ MORE

I was very reluctant to get this service because of all the horrific stories. However, I had an amazing experience. I think it matters who does it because if the level too high it will ending up burning your skin. I had no reaction afterwards. I have dry patched, redness skin. After the... READ MORE

I've been getting IPL treatments for years at various clinics. I just received my 2nd treatment with Dr. Bunkis and Donnikah and am very pleased with the results. The hospital staff is very friendly, and both Dr. Bunkis and Donnikah are great with answering questions and spending time with the... READ MORE
