A handheld flashgun is passed across the skin, delivering a spectral range of light that targets the hair or skin issue. These types of treatments may also be called laser skin rejuvenation, photorejuvenation, or laser resurfacing.

Initial Results OK, but Didn't Last - Scottsdale, AZ

I had a consult for removing brown spots and broken blood vessels. The options were confusing (different lasers, peels, etc.). But I decided to start with IPL since it seemed the least costly and invasive. Although it didn't remove or even fade some of the brown spots, I did see an improvement... READ MORE

IPL - Not Sure

So I just got an IPL treatment done. It was not as bad as I thought it would be and it was very fast!

IPL M22 for Matted Spider Veins in Lower Legs and Ankles. San Diego, CA

From the get-go, there was something a bit off about this procedure. That a nurse (and not a doctor) would be charging top dollar yet had no answers, was irksome.
