I've always had freckles but the older I got it seems they joined forces. I had a lot of sun damage, freckling. My age spots drove me crazy. I had a lot of swelling. Also while they say this is a no downtime procedure I went straight home. My face was swollen & there is no way I could wear... READ MORE

Before my IPL procedure, I didn't feel comfortable taking photos with friends, leaving the house without makeup or looking in the mirror-- I had dark spots, sun spots, large spots- you name it, ALL over my face! What had I done? Sun damage! I went for a visit at Skin Raleigh & was more than... READ MORE

I had Ipl and I was burned so badly. I was in a lot of pain during the procedure and had told the technician multiple times during the procedure that it was painful and burning. Immediately after finishing it became clear that I was burned. multiple people came in and tried to assure me that I... READ MORE

During the consultation, I was told IPL Photofacial treatment should be able to get rid of the age spots on my hands. So, I bought an IPL package treatment package that includes three times of treatments. After the whole series of the treatments (they even added one more treatment for free) but... READ MORE

Sitting down at the computer to write this out because today was a total surprise. It's been 3 hours since my first IPL treatment and my face feels a little tight. The sunburn feeling has subsided. A little background - On the FItzpatrick scale, which runs from 0 (albino) to VI (6-black)... READ MORE

I have been focused on a skin care routine for 3-4 years now and virtually eliminated my acne problems while having the best skin I've had ever. Due to marathon training, it requires me to be outside in the sun. I have noticable skin damage with darker freckles. Being half caucasian and half... READ MORE

I had a Cellulaze procedure 4 months ago which left me with three dark spots on my legs where the incisions were made. Today the doctor used IPL to zap the three spots and it hurt like hell. I still feel the spots burning a couple of hours later. Supposedly the spot is supposed to scab over and... READ MORE

It has been 1.5 yrs since my one and only session of extremely aggressive IPL which left me burnt. I was told it would help me with the dark spots near my ear and overall skin health. Don forget improve wrinkles. LOL I know my case is hopeless but I post this for others so they can see this... READ MORE

Decided to try IPL to see if it gets rid of the sun damage on my face. First treatment today. Pictures are tonight freshly washed with night cream. I was told I will need probable 3 treatments but reading on here what others have written I have decided to see what happens after this one before I... READ MORE

My IPL photofacial is scheduled for 11/4/15. The machine being used is the Medley by Ellman. I'm very excited! Being a California native my skin is very damaged. (I never wore SPF..now i do!) my skin conditions are uneven tone & complexion, dull, dark sports, hyperpigmentation, scars, large... READ MORE

The person who did this was from a Laser Center AND a nurse The burns did not cause scarring as soon as it calmed down from feeling like a SEVER sunburn and once it sloughed off / peeled of and the pick under went away I was left with BRICKING yes the BRICK pattern you see is WHAT I was left...

I feel like my skin started to freak out a couple years ago! Redness , flushing , some brown spots ! I was frustrated I've always worn sunscreen since I was 17, my derm diagnosed me with Rosacea , I changed my skin regimine to gentle skin friendly products and received ipl at my dermatologists...

I was the "model" for a demonstration procedure at a Medical Spa that was considering laser services. Prior to performing the procedure, the sales representative said to me "I assume this is a tan?" referring to the color of my skin. I responded that it was tan, that I tan easily, and that I had...

I saw Dr. Wong to have 2 very small brown spots removed. She assured me IPL was the only way to remove the brown spots. She also assured me that no one would be able to tell I had a treatment on my face. Not only did she give me 2nd & 3rd degree burns, she tried to cover it up and said the... READ MORE

I have started to notice that my complexion has gotten terrible over the past two years or so. I have started to get lots of brown spots, as well as red patches. My dermatologist prescribed me a cream which didn't make a difference. I decided to take the plunge with IPL to see if I can reverse... READ MORE

I bought this because I want to even my pigment and maybe fade a few light acne scars. I read the dangers of doing IPL WITH DARK SKIN and didn't really see any reviews showing how it works on darker skin (I am IV-V) on this site. The research I found mentioned that lowering the settings was... READ MORE

I am in my 40's and have eczema which gets worse when I sweat. Living in Phoenix, that is impossible to avoid. I am blonde with fair skin, and my face tends to get red easily. I wear makeup to cover up the eczema, which only aggravates it. It is an endless cycle. I now have hypo-pigmentation too... READ MORE

I have had terrible broken capillaries and brown spots down the sides of my neck and chest area for years. Though I use sunblock daily, living in an area with extreme heat makes for inevitable sun damage and premature aging. I had been previously treated by a different Dr. years ago,with a... READ MORE

I'm 26 but I travel to Jamaica a lot and have not taken good care of my skin (I do now!). So I finally broke down and bought a single ipl treatment. I got this done by the PA at my dermatologist who does all of them there. The treatment was not that painful. She did a great job. But here I am... READ MORE

I have a lot of sun damage on my face, kind of a combo of light freckles and brown spots. Just got my first IPL treatment yesterday, it wasn't so bad. I was a little nervous about the pain but compared to laser tattoo removal (10 pain), it was nothing, maybe a 2 pain level. I'm anxious to see... READ MORE
