IPL for Small Red Capillaries and Light Sun Damage

I have always had diffuse redness in my skin as I am a fairskinned redhead. I had IPL in mylate 30's and liked the results so at 49 I am doing it again using a GroupOn. My aesthetician has 7 years experience and already called me back to answer questions about the pain. It gave me confidence in... READ MORE

IPL Photorejuvenation on Chest, Hands and Neck - Westlake Village, CA

I recently went to Forever Young in Westlake Village and met with Valerie, the RN, there.

When I went in, I was... READ MORE

I had IPL treatments on my legs to remove sunspots the first week of April. Nothing changed from the knee down, but my thighs got red burns on them for at least 1 month.

2 months ago I had the Alma Harmony XL Pro IPL to treat sunspots on my arm. It was a demo and the settings clearly were WAY too strong and left me with white rectangular box shape burns. I am not sure if the Alma representative put incorrect settings or the device was defective and gave... READ MORE

50 Year Old Asian-American - First Experience with IPL - Greenville, SC

Two broken capillaries and a small dark patch motivated me towards IPL. I've had one treatment. It's too soon to say how I feel about it. I will tell you, it was SUPER uncomfortable for me. I physically jumped a little with every zap. Could not wait for it to end. I used lidocaine too so I have... READ MORE

IPL/BBL Burns and Stripes on Arms

Warning...do not get laser treatments from anyone that isn't qualified. In Florida, only Doctors and Physician Assistants are authorized (which still doesn’t guarantee a good outcome).

IPL - Great Results After One Treatment. Here's Why I Didnt Get Burned

For as long as I can remember I have had freckles on my very fair skin (Fitzpatrick Type I skin). This turned into melasma shortly after going on the birth control pill.

I went to get my first IPL photofacial in hope to get my skin brighter and help growth of collagen. Procedure lasted for about 20 min + 15 min of waiting time for numbing cream to work on my face.

35 Year Old Male Looking to Have Some Sun Spots Removed.

Paid for 6 treatments. The initial treatment looks good. Since I'm a male I did not have any IPL along the beard line. My focus is more around the cheek areas and around the temple. Nothing really on my forehead. I probably did not need 6 treatments but I'll bank the leftovers for the future. I... READ MORE
