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

I had brown spots on my face from so much sun exposure. most of them were concentrated on the sides of my face though I had 2 dark ones on my right cheek and some by my nose. I had 1 PF 8 days ago and so far I am extremely happy with the results I see. They are just now falling off and based on... READ MORE

First zap was a surprise I thought I would not feel anything. After 80 zaps I was ready to call it quits, I did not care what my face looked like, but it was only a few more. Every review has said pain free if I wknew I would have taken a pain killer prior to treatment. I will say it's only... READ MORE

I see on this site that photofacial and IPL are the same. I had 5 sessions of "photofacial" on my hands about 5 years ago for freckles and spots with NO results. This year I had only ONE treatment of "IPL" on my hands with wonderful results. The freckles and spots are completely gone and I... READ MORE

Just had an IPL done a week ago. The setting was one level above medium. I am very fair with very few brown spots or freckles. I did it for spider veins especially around my nose. The procedure for me was not very painful, really very easy. The results so far are wonderful. Skin is lighter, less... READ MORE

After years of being in the sun my skin was beginning to look very dull and splotchy. I was really looking for a procedure that would help even my skin tone while eliminating my sun spots READ MORE

Well here’s my honest opinion about the entire procedure: Had my appt at 1:15 on a Tuesday afternoon and had every intention of returning to work after that. After all I had read there was no reason for me not to right.. WRONG! I am a 34 year old Hispanic Female with not quite medium... READ MORE

I just had my photofacial done yesterday and I must say it was great. the staff was so professional. The lady who did my photofacial tested a small area first, it stung a little (it is not supposed to be painful, but it should sting). As soon as it was over, withing the first 10min I was the...

I had my second photofacial a week ago. Cost of first was $150, cost of second was $99. Shop around as they are often on sale. Both were done with Palomar Starlux, and both were on setting 5 out of maximum 6. Very little pain and no after effects except for slight feeling of being sunburned the... READ MORE

I had the IPL facial to correct some minor sun damage. The procedure was a little more painful than I expected, but I'm very sensitive to pain. My skin looked great after a few days and I got a lot of compliments and questions about what I had done. I would describe my results as a glowing... READ MORE

I just got home from an IPL. I am a bit concerned. I understand the spots but what about this rough texture. My skin in some places is swollen. It looks like I have wrinkles. Is this normal? READ MORE

The 1st and 2nd photofacial was not bad. My face got red but my broken capillaries and age spots did not go away. On the 3rd treatment she did the max voltage. Both my eyes are swollen. My broken blood vessels exploded and I have red spots all over my face. I am wearing reading glasses to... READ MORE

I had a series of 3 Photofacial RF skin rejuvination procedures because I have hyperpigmentation all over my face. I was 30 yrs old when I had the procedure. I was also told it would tighten my skin & help with aging. I was NOT impressed in the slightest with the results. It did get rid... READ MORE

I had my first photofacial last week and at first was a little scared by the results. My skin looked worse for the first few days, but since has become beautiful and smooth. I have a lot of sun damage such as redness on my cheeks, chin and in random spots on my face. I also have dark spots that... READ MORE

I've been having treatments now for a year combined with microdermabrasion... results are phenomenal! It immediately lifted the brown spots caused by sun exposure, my skin is so smooth (pores reduced) and evenly toned along with a drastic reduction in wrinkles! I was seriously considering...

I've only had one treatment, with 4 more to go, and yes it did hurt, and afterward my face was very red and I had to go home after b/c I was not prepared what I would look like. The redness went down after a few hours and it helps to put light ice on your face after as well. The very next... READ MORE

I am in contact with an aesthetician who just opened her own clinic. She needed a few subjects to do before and after pictures on and asked if I'd be interested in getting the treatment for free and writing a testimonial. I'm not one to turn down free stuff. This sucker hurts if done... READ MORE

Had a photo facial on Monday, August 2nd and am already loving the results. The pain was minimal but I have to admit - I cheated and used some numbing cream I had left from a prior cosmetic procedure. Felt like a little rubber band snapping then a slight burn for a second or two after each pulse... READ MORE

Just got a photofacial done yesterday, to try & help 2 brown spots I have on either side of my nose. Dr. said he thinks its melasma & that 6-8 treatments will help clear it up. This morning when I woke up I had brown marks all around my upper/ lower mouth. Looks like dirt/ mustache, its... READ MORE

First, my motivations: I'm young, but I have freckly skin, and am already starting to notice fine line around my eyes and forehead. Additionally, and more crucially, I wanted to reduce my acne scars and hope to reduce further acne as well. For my upper back, I got a very bad sunburn about... READ MORE
