I had a couple large sunspots/brown spots on my cheeks from sun exposure and have tried many lightening creams for years with no luck. 2 IPL treatments a few months ago and the sun spots are ALL GONE. I paid $150 per treatment in So Calif. to a board certified MD. I am 48 years old and very... READ MORE

So...my bf and I both have major scarring from cystic acne. I still have cystic acne, my bf took acutane and is acne free. The treatment took approx 1 Hr and felt like getting a zapping tattoo. After about 5 min into it I felt the extreme heat. My driving gave me a special cooling instrument, it... READ MORE

I don't know what everyone else is complaining about. I had IPL done on my armpits, legs and vaginal area (entire area). I used to have an ingrown hair problem BIG time, I had red bumps, razor burns, and discoloured skin. After only 4 IPL treatments on my legs, they look photoshopped. They are... READ MORE

Went to a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon fir st two treatments. He had several heimslef. looked so good after 2 was glad I didn't pay for the series of 5. Top of cheeks were rock hear and swollen after the second one cus they turned up the juice since the lazer wasn't hurting. Took a week... READ MORE

Works well for my ruddy complexion. I don't know if I have rosacea but I am definitely prone to redness and dilated capillaries. I get this about every 4-6 months. With every treatment there are a few capillaries that it 'kills off' and I can see them shrivel up. Most however just... READ MORE

Completed 3 IPL treatments and am very pleased with the results achieved. The first session is a shock to the system, but the following sessions were much less intense feeling. Results from the first session were noticeable by the third week and the following sessions have further enhanced skin... READ MORE

I've suffered/dealt with acne for the past 11 years (I'm 23). The past decade has taught me there is no immediate or one cure, and whilst some issues may be linked to your diet/skin care regime, every individual's skin needs are different and the causes range from person to person... READ MORE

I had a series of IPL treatments (and of course, was promised amazing results). I can only give this a so-so rating. The pulses will start to hurt after 30 minutes of treatment. For the cost, I don't think IPL was worth it based on the "promise the moon" spiel I was given by the... READ MORE

This is in Bangkok, Thailand. Thus the reason the cost is far below the average. The skin doctor had a tech put very cold gel on my face after cleaning my skin, putting protective goggles, lip balm on me. The gel is super cold! Then, comes the pulse of light, and it's a bit challenging at... READ MORE

My skin color is olive color. I look hispanic though I am not. I have melasma on the sides of my face due to years of being in the sun. I had 3 IPLs done. The doctor said it would zap the brown spots right off. Wrong! It did nothing at all. So the doctor thank God felt bad about this so I then... READ MORE

These treatments are torture. I have had electrolysis and other procedures done. By far IPL is the most painful. Results were fair at best. I switched to a plastic surgeon's office who prescribed a skin regimen (facial washes plus some creams to slough off dead skin) called Obagi. The Obagi... READ MORE

I had a lot of sun damage from years in the sun plus a 2 year tour to Hawaii. I had been told that IPL would have AMAZING results on my skin. I had kind of. Amass. It almost looked like I had blush on all the time. During the summer, my complexion was kind of "lacey". I had my... READ MORE

So let me start off by saying this isn't cheap by any stretch of the imagination. However my red cheeks and huge pores have decreased after one treatment by at least 30 percent. My mom is a brit and I have that extremely fair skin. Most of those little red veins are gone. I didn't even... READ MORE

I'm ten days post-IPL, and here's my report: Generally I have really good skin without a lot of wrinkles. I'm 44 and did my fair share of 'roasting' when I was younger (baby oil, sun etc.). While I've been lucky that I didn't get brown patches or wrinkles as a... READ MORE

I had a full face IPL treatment with the Palomar MaxG system 10 days ago. Really pleased with the results. I had very dark freckle like marks afterwards where I had some noticeable sun spots. The dark marks faded after 10 days and luckily they were around the bridge of my nose so looked like... READ MORE

I have done IPL 5 times in 3 different offices. Some were very powerful and others not. One time it hurt so much but soon after all my freckles turned to coffee grinds and fell off. READ MORE

Went for a consultation and was told that because my damage was slight and new one treatment should fix what I was concerned about. Had my treatment two weeks ago and everything pretty much still looks exactly the same or slightly worse. I've had more success with Clinique's Dark Spot... READ MORE

I just had IPL done 4 days ago. The treatment lasted about 20 minutes. It did hurt ...felt like a bad sunburn and stinging pains. However, within 15 to 20 minutes after the IPL, I was already feeling better. I did take Advil to curb the discomfort. I had my face and neck done for freckles and... READ MORE

I went to receive a follow up laser genesis treatment, one of 6, but what I received instead was an IPL laser treatment. Since I expected the laser genesis, I was not ready for the evasive laser treatment I received. I remember thinking this is not what they told me to expect from the laser... READ MORE

I am blonde/blue eyed and used sunscreen daily since high school. When I was pregnant at age 24 my cheeks darkened and my freckles got much darker. After my child was born the freckles stayed dark as well as some darker acne scars remained. I had IPL to remove these dark spots. The first... READ MORE
