Great Results! Great Pricing! Wonderful Treatment by Shirley! - Fairhope, AL

My daughter talked me into trying IPL for my face, which had numerous very large and very dark spots from sun damage. I didn't really think that it would work, but after a couple of weeks post treatment, the majority of visible damage is GONE! Shirley administered a numbing cream, then we waited a bit, and she performed the IPL treatment, which only took a few minutes. It was like getting popped with a hot rubber band again and again. It was very tolerable, just a little unnerving. Shirley was very gentle and my treatment was finished up with a relaxing application of a moisturizing sunscreen. I would do it again and would recommend this treatment for spots to others. Make sure you wear sunscreen to prevent more spots from appearing. They sell several great brands at the spa.

UPDATE: Just went back for another IPL tx. Clear Med Spa (Haley Dermatology) has purchased a new IPL laser. IT IS NOT AS EFFECTIVE AS THE OLD LASER. Nor do they apply a numbing cream (they say it is not needed with the new laser). I am not so happy with the results. Shirley was wonderful as usual. Perhaps the old adage of 'no pain, no gain' is especially true of lasers? Good pricing, but not as effective a treatment.

The new laser at Haley Dermatology is not...

The new laser at Haley Dermatology is not effective. The old laser was much more effective and well worth the $150.00. I love the staff, but I will try this treatment elsewhere and report my findings. I am still careful with my daily routine (Obagi rx hydroquinone and sunscreen). Oh well!
Shirley (esthetician), not Dr. Haley

Dr. Haley does not provide this treatment; her staff of trained estheticians do. My ratings are for Shirley and the front staff.

So glad this did what you were wanting! Since you mentioned you would do it again, I'm curious if you just mean that in a "It was worth it" context or if you are actually planning to have more sessions done?

Megan, it was well worth it and I plan to follow up this treatment with another in a month or so. I have a special family occasion coming up and I plan on having another treatment about a month before the date, so that I have time to let the discoloration from the IPL gradually slough off. Also, I checked pricing in the area for facial IPL and the special of $150.00 is very competitive.
