I bought a package of ematrix at a medspa and they offered me a complimentary upgrade to their new Palomar 1540 laser due to a customer service issue. (I listed 250 as price as that was price to upgrade from cheeks only to full face). Big mistake. I had good results with ematrix and should have... READ MORE

Fraxelated laser was recommended to me a few years ago by a dermatologist and was told it would be perfect for me. I have rolling scars that are 20 years old and still red. Thought about it lots and decided to try this procedure at age 33, I am caucasian too in case anyone is wondering. Had... READ MORE

Hi there, I'm getting my first procedure done from Boston dermatology (BU) by a highly qualified dermatologist on the 7 of October 2014 . Extremely nervous ! At the age of 24 I had the onset of adult acne :( still dealing with it . Up until recently I barely had scars . Unfortunately I now have... READ MORE

I had "Fraxel" done to reduce some brown spots on my face, which I had developed over the years despite consistent use of sun blockers. Weeks after the first treatment I noticed lines appear on my face (marionette, forehead, eyes). When I reported this to the clinic I was told that this was... READ MORE

I was very nervous about my first appointment today, especially the downtime, but after years of putting up with acne scarring, pitted, rolling etc and pigmentation recently caused by the pill, i decided to do it! I chose a reputable dermatologist and took half an anxiety pill beforehand! First... READ MORE

I am a black male that waited for years for my stretch marks on my back to cure themselves. When that never happened I decided to do some research and find my own solution. I ended up on this website and after reading about a dozen reviews decided to give it a try. I made an appointment in San... READ MORE

I've been researching ways of getting rid of my Stretchmarks for years and finally decided to give it try. I paid $2000 for a 5 session package in northern California. I just completed my 3rd session and can say that I'm seeing good results. My Stretchmarks are on my calves (back of legs) and... READ MORE

I consulted with Dr. Chiu about addressing some scarring I have on my forehead and she recommended a series of treatments with the Palomar Lux 1540 Fractional laser. I completed three treatments with the last having been performed a little over a year ago. Since then I've not only seen very... READ MORE

I met with a consultant at one of the clinics in Toronto that offer the Palomar Lux1540 Fractional Laser for treatment of stretch marks. I had already read everything I could find about this laser so I wasn't there for advice or because I needed convincing, but because I needed to know how much... READ MORE

Hello: I am 35 years old born in India and moved to the US few years ago.I have a tan skin. I have ice pick acne scars all over my face. I was told by one of the doctors that C02 laser is not for me as it works only with very white skin. I got my first Fraxel 1540 done few weeks ago. My doctor... READ MORE

This laser does work on acne scars but you cannot see results after just one or two treatments. I thought it would help people to read my experience after eleven Palomar Lux 1540 treatments in one year. Everyone's skin is different and what works for me might not be right for you. Read from...

1 procedure done with 1540, the setting was on 50. I was swollen for 2-3 days. Not bad at all. No complications. 1540 worked well. I could definitely see improvement. I had 2 more procedures done with palomar icon (my doctor bought a new laser) . Things are getting better Feel free to... READ MORE

I had 2 treatments and the first was set for pigmentation. I had swelling for the firts two days which was helped with ice packs within the first hour and benadryl (slept with head elevated. I had the little "waffle" dot pattern show up after 2 days, but eventually sloughed off. The pigmentation... READ MORE

After having a hard time finding reviews of this laser I swore I would post a review if I went ahead with the treatment!! I am a 31 year old female, part Asian. I suffered from bad acne on my cheeks throughout my teenage years and again through 2 pregnancies. I always thought that my acne... READ MORE

I made the mistake of using an RN. The settings were too powerful. I developed horrible scarring, reactive eruptions, open sores, with actual ash burn stuff coming up out of the scars. Also I believe I figured out what the blue thread-like-stuff, that seem to be in-bedded within the epithelial... READ MORE

I had one Palomar 1540 restore treatment a little over two years ago and it ruined the texture of my skin and broke nearly every blood vessel on my face. Before the procedure I had near perfect skin except for some fine lines around the eyes. The healing process went exactly as described yet... READ MORE

I would like to do this but I am so scared due to my asian background. I might experience discolouration like hyperpigmentation. I have an icepick like scarring on my face and really looking for something that is worth doing. I am a filipino guy in search for the best treatment on my facial acne... READ MORE

I'd like to say first of all that sites like these are a real help when you are trying to decide on a procedure that may or may not benefit you in the long run. I research everything on anything that I'm about to purchase or invest in. I like to take a pre-emptive stance on most things so not to... READ MORE

Just got my first Lux 1540 laser treatment last Saturday at my doctor's office. The procedure was painful despite the use of numbing cream and sedative but at least it was done pretty fast, 25 min (one pass) for the entire face and after that I was given an ice pack and 30 min of Omnilux Light...
