I’m 48 years young ;-) and have suffered with sun-damaged skin on my face, neck and chest for many years. I’ve been told by several estheticians that I have rosacea—though not confirmed by a dermatologist, I tend to agree due to the redness and small capillaries I experience. I once had a... READ MORE

I wanted to get rid of brown spots, and oily skin. I noticed after the first photo facial I got, the brown spots turned darker and in 5 days the coffee ground effect. They sloughed off and I did not pick at them but the spots were still there. The 2nd and 3rd photo facial was less effective, so... READ MORE

I used to be in the sun a lot and also used tanning beds from the age of mid-20's on. I am now 50 and really notice the pigmentation issues with my skin. In addition, I went through menopause fairly early in life and I started getting a darker pigmentation around my mouth and jawline, which... READ MORE

Felt like a sunburn for the first hour. Was prescribed Biafine Topical Emulsion cream to help with the healing process, and to reduce the burning sensation. Noticed immediate results after only one session. Worth every penny! I'm waiting on my sunspots to flake off, it's only been 24hrs. post... READ MORE

I had my first photofacial today. It took about 10 minutes for the entire procedure, she put on a cream before hand and then another one after. I could smell the skin burn when she was doing it. I had it done about an hour and a half ago and my face immediately felt sunburned...a bad sunburn. ... READ MORE

I started going to the Spa for photofacials and have had Whitney every session, which I believe I had 7. She was extremely professional and friendly every single visit. She explained everything and I am thrilled with my results!! I am going back soon and will be requesting her again!!! She is... READ MORE

I got a photofacial two days ago on my face/chest and I have what looks like burns to me. What's weird is my face doesn't have any marks like my chest does. I had a few treatments done a year ago and nothing like this has happened before. I have a few more treatments tgat I've already paid for... READ MORE

5 days ago I had the 2nd treatment of a Syneron Triniti package, again I have bar marks on my face, 1 particularly painful. Is this the correct result? I have appointment in 3 days to discuss results with owner / doctor, she did not do the treatment , a technician did. These marks result in pale... READ MORE

Yesterday afternoon I had my AFT Photofacial. Part 2/3 of my treatment plan. I am Japanese and part Irish, so I have freckles that seem "out of place" here in Hawaii where Asians mostly have "non-freckling" skin. So, I took to this treatment to reduce my freckles and look a little more "in... READ MORE

I had IPL 7 days ago and am amazing at the results. This was my first session, I will have a total of 4. It is slightly painful and my spots became very dark before coming off. I decided to do the IPL to remove sun spots and improve the overall look of my skin. READ MORE

I had my first Photofacial yesterday. To my surprise a few hours later I noticed a lot of dark spots on my face. I didn't see all of this pigmentation before because it was very light. I'm not happy with the dark spots but I know it's evidence of a good treatment so I am anxiously... READ MORE

I'm in my forties, and because I've been religiously wearing sunscreen since I was thirty, doing procedures, and have an excellent dermatologist (Nissan Pilest, Total Dermatology, Irvine, CA), my skin actually looks pretty good for my age. However, I have broken capillaries around my nose, an... READ MORE

Go online and look for reviews of the providers you are considering. I've had numerous photofacials/IPL procedures, and I can tell you that you should definitely do your homework before choosing a provider. There are so many med spas around these days it's ridiculous, and I don't think half of... READ MORE

I am having my first BBL treatment tomorrow with the 'Sciton Forever Young BroadBand Light.' I am so excited! I have darker spots and redness due to acne my entire young adult/adult life. I am hoping to see some lightening of my spots and a more even skin tone after the first treatment. The plan... READ MORE

This past summer I've really noticed a lot of age spots from the sun on my face that I hate. I tried the photo facial. It does feel like a rubber band flicking your face. A few spots were a little uncomfortable. The age spots popped up everywhere and my makeup was really heavy for a few days to... READ MORE

I purchased an ipl photo facial through groupon after checking out the reviews on the place. I had no idea what to expect but was hoping to rid of my dark freckles from years of living in California and not using sunscreen daily. My freckles were starting to not look so cute anymore. After I was... READ MORE

Dr Dellinger performed BBL (Broadband Light Therapy) on my face, neck and chest on the 5th of December. Now, less than 2 weeks later, the majority of the brown sunspots have disappeared! The treatment was pain free and there was absolutely zero downtime...I went to work immediately after... READ MORE

As a man in his early sixties coming from a macho family of all males, I was hesitant going forward with my want and need to do some minor facial enhancements. Many summers of my youth spent under good old SOL came back to haunt my skin, and damage started to show up in my 50’s. When I got... READ MORE

Great doctor, great office. Had photo facials done 2 years ago with her for my rosacea and great results. I had been to someone else that used really high settings and was very painful at the other office I looked beaten up and I found out the treatments do not have to hurt or look that way. She...

Great experience with Dr. Michael Macdonald. He performed BBL Photorejuventation in November to remove years of sun damage. Very few days downtime. Recovery was exactly as I was told. And the results are fantastic. My skin is clear, smooth, even. Wearing very little face makeup these days and... READ MORE
