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

I won a drawing for a free procedure at the place I have been getting alma treatments so I decided to try a photofacial. The procedure was done 4 days ago, so far I have had a lot of dark spots surface but I know that is to be expected. It felt like little snaps when I got it done, and I... READ MORE

45yrs young with sun damage and some freckles. I was very impressed. My aesthetician Cherry at The Skin Center in Pittsburgh was fabulous. I took one look at her skin and said "I want your skin". She prescribed 4 chemical peels and 4 ipl treatments on alternating months. I've... READ MORE

This price is for one IPL photofacial and one microdermabrasion combined. I have white/olive skin, had to stop tanning two months prior to treatment. (hard for me!, but was told I needed to do it). First they put numbing cream on my face, then cleansed my face and chest. It really wasn't... READ MORE

I didn't do enough homework before I did this. I had two sessions. The first one was on my face, neck and chest. My face was fine, my chest was burnt, painful and did not seem normal. I went back a second time and only did my face since I didn't have any problems. The second time I... READ MORE

I had a series of 5-6 treatments, 6 weeks apart; total cost $1800. Had terrible rosacea and sun damage. There is definitely down-time, that is, you won't be "presentable" in public until 10 days. But I tell you, it transformed my skin. I can't say enough good things about my... READ MORE

Great results after first session. Somewhat painful...will take to some sort of pain killer before my 2nd session next week. Probably won't go through anymore. READ MORE

I am 44 with Irish-Scot ancestry and the brown spots on my face have been bothering me for the past few years, so I signed up for 3 treatments for fotofacial including a laser for fine lines following each treatment. I could not find any negative reviews on the internet, but now that I think... READ MORE

The treatment felt fine, almost like a little bit of a snap, very tolerable. there was a light although I wore protective glasses, it was obvious it was bright & it felt warm to the skin. The experience was easy, I can see how well it works although I didn't want it to remove my mole... READ MORE

I am 40, very fair, delicate complexion (green eyes, lt brwn hair). Though I have never sunbathed in my life, I had sun damage just from being outside in general (I have since learned never to leave the house without 50 SPF on my face... world of difference!). I am very prone to broken blood... READ MORE

I have had one photofacial, I got it a few days ago. Already I can tell that the areas I was concerned about -- some hyperpigmentation spots from acne due to hormonal birth control -- have not been helped, whereas some areas on my cheeks I didn't even "see" hyperpigmentation have... READ MORE

Hello everyone: I searched and searched and couldn't find any postings on after care for photo facial. I had my photo facial on Aug 27 and am very pleased with the results so far. The pain was there-but I am a total wimp so I don't like any sort of pain. Regardless, after the... READ MORE

I received 2 Photofacials about 4 months ago, 2 weeks apart, but it was only suppose to be for a Post Inflamatory Hyperpigmentation mark that I caused on my cheek from exfoliating too hard. The mark is on my cheek and it is about the size of my pinky nail, maybe smaller. At the time I had no... READ MORE

This is the first treatment I have ever had done. I am 50 and had many age/sun spots all over my face, makeup would not cover them. I also had some red spots around the chin. I thought I'd give it a try after reading reviews. I had this treatment done 2 weeks ago. It hurt, but the... READ MORE

I was told by my dermatologist and spa that this procedure would assist the year of Obagi I did.I was told it was an easy, no downtime procedure. I was misled. I rescheduled my appt. several times because I was nervous. I had been on vacation the week before, but had been out of the sun... READ MORE

I am not sure why doctors don't tell their patients, but using a sunscreen with zinc oxide 5% or higher keeps the brown spots from recurring as fast. Of course they will come back and that's why you need to go in every 12-18 months for a "touch-up." I had to ASK my doctor about... READ MORE

I have a very fair complexion and was experiencing mild rosacea, had a few small spider veins, and some light "age spots" due to sun damage. I tried a topical and an oral treatment for the rosacea, prescribed by my dermatologist,but felt that IPL would be a more natural solution... READ MORE

I have hyperpigmentation all on my forhead and sides of my cheeks. I get two photfacials every early spring and two every fall. It fades all the dark spots and evens out my skin. I have tried all kinds of treatments and this works expecially well for me. It does come back..thats what... READ MORE

I bought a Groupon for a photofalcial. I am now two weeks out from the photofacial and I am very happy with the results. A word of caution... I would not consider this a "no down time" procedure. My face was swolen and very red for several days. I had the procedure on a Saturday... READ MORE
