I had 4 sessions that combined a quick 1-2 pass sweep of microdermabrasion, followed by intense pulsed light treatment. I had initially purchased a package on Lifebooker for IPL to treat dark under eye circles and I was upsold (when I got to spa) on micro +IPL. The MD remarked that dark circle... 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

Best investment in my appearance ever! WOW! At 53, the skin on my face and neck was really starting to sag, my cheeks were splotchy red, my neck was full-on sun damaged red, and the skin at my jawline was getting droopy. No more. Everything I just listed is gone! Completely... READ MORE

I had my first IPL treatment on my chest about ten days ago, it was relatively painless and I need no pain medication or numbing cream. Immediately afterward it felt as if I had a sunburn and was red and irritated. This lasted for about a day. The spots on my chest started to darken and within a... READ MORE

Personal goals were to get rid of some of the spots and blotchy areas on my face. The procedure was fast and relatively painless. My skin felt very clean and alive afterward, and I believe it had a vibrant glow. I will definitely do the procedure again occasionally for skin health maintenance. I... READ MORE

I had high hopes for photofacial..i did a ton of research before getting it done and after 2 treatments combined with bleaching cream i see zero results. at my last appt the dr even noticed that my skin wasnt improving and said that 3 more treatments might not work. she didnt want me to waste my...

Last year, I developed a penny sized sun spot on my cheek. Because I'm so pale, it stands out horribly. I visited my local med spa and was told I would only need two IPL photofacial sessions to remove it. I went ahead and bought a package of three sessions, thinking my remaining session could be...

I just got back from my first of three treatments. I am of Chinese decent and initially the doctor said I wasn't a good candidate due to too much melanin (dark hair, dark eyes). But I went for a test spot anyway. Nothing adverse happened, so here I am now. I feel nothing out of the ordinary,... READ MORE

I purchased a package of photofacials and microderms - 5 of each to alternate every two weeks. I didn't see any result from the laser. They aren't lying to you when they say it feels like a rubber band snapping on your skin. I did, however, enjoy the Microderm. My face always felt so nice after... READ MORE

I went to a medspa and had the photofacial on my face & declotte. This was three days ago. When they did it they stated the redness would go away in a few hours. My declotte started out burning for most of the first night. I spent the evening with an icepack on it. It's still red and it's... READ MORE

I had my first photofacial treatment this morning at a susrgicare center after getting a recommendation for the procedure from my mother who went through 3 sessions 2 years ago. I have red hair, brown eyes and LOTS of freckles. I have a had a lot of sun exposure throughout my 29 years and... READ MORE

My first photofacial was offered to me for free after having a surgical procedure done by Dr. B in Toronto. Immediately after, I noticed my pore were really small and clean. Fine lines were less noticeable. I looked more awake. The results lasted 4 months so far in terms of fine lines. My... READ MORE

With each of five treatments I was given a new reason why I wasn't seeing any results....had to start light in case I burned...waited too long between appointments (though I wasn't aware that that was a recommendation)...needed to go higher yet on the settings...need to try without the...

Initially I sought out IPL for stage 1 roscea on my nose/cheeks. I had a localized treatment in this area 10 years ago and it was very helpful. After some reserach, I decided to go for not only rosecea - but to target the hyperpigmentation on my chest, neck and face as well. In the initial... READ MORE

I have sensitive combination skin. My skin felt tight after the facial and I was horrified with the results. Though the Rosacea improved considerably my cheeks are still rough and I have lost the dewy moisturised skin I had before. Having said that i did get complimented on my skin.Overall, I... READ MORE

I have bad pigmentation from sun damage, and when I had my last son, I got a horrible pregnancy mask that never went away... For 5 years, I have been wearing a facial tanner to "try" to even out my face... But it didnt and I just clogged my pores ... Bad... So anyways, I Had a micro... READ MORE

I wanted to get a photofacial because I heard that it can help get rid of broken capillaries. After the 1st session, I did notice alot of dark brown specks on the surface of my skin immediately after. After a week, they all flaked off. My bigger spots faded. My second session, my skin did...

Reason for choosing was it was a deal; 4 sessions for 300 dollars. Also because my pigmentation and fine lines are really getting me down. Im 27 but look at least 5 years older than all my friends my age. The lady in the salon pointed out my aging skin when i was getting a wax and told me about... READ MORE

I am a 44 year old woman who has rosacea. My face always seemed red on my cheeks,nose and on my chin. I've had one session done a month ago and I can already see a difference. I have another session this week and I'm so excited. It worked for me :) READ MORE

I had an IPL from a clinic by a licensed nurse practioner. Using an IPL vasculite by Lumenis, he hyperpigmented the melasma and sun spots on my face. They became much darker! I was so upset. Later on, a dermatologist said he could fix it with a Palomar fractional laser. He did lighten the spots.... READ MORE
