I've been getting IPL treatments for years at various clinics. I just received my 2nd treatment with Dr. Bunkis and Donnikah and am very pleased with the results. The hospital staff is very friendly, and both Dr. Bunkis and Donnikah are great with answering questions and spending time with the... READ MORE

I am a huge fan of Dr. Marisa Lawrence and her entire office staff… From the incredibly kind and professional Michelle and Maryann to the wonderful clinical coordinator, Lisa T, RN, I always get well informed, personalized care. I have had multiple sessions of both IPL photo rejuvenation and n... READ MORE

This is a wonderful, caring office with a wonderful, caring doctor and a wonderful, caring staff! After having had 3 IPL treatments to eliminate the aging brown spots on my face, I am thrilled to say that I now look refreshed--and a whole lot younger than the 60 years old that I am. Wow--what...

I did this at the same time as Botox. Essentially, I had been thinking of IPL for a while, but the forehead wrinkles which freaked me out spurred me into a bit of a mini-makeover. I'm a redhead with a very fair complexion, and lots of freckles. I opted for face, neck, and decolletage.... READ MORE

Hi Everyone. I really wasn't going to write this review but since Eva (The community Manager) suggested I do to help others, here I am. Now I honestly refuse to add more negative stories to the internet and just leave it like that, so I will explain my story, then what I am doing to help heal..... READ MORE

I kept getting cuts and ingrown hair down there from shaving and trimming and I decided no more! I started my IPL treatment in late December and have so far had six treatment $175 CDN each with taxes. We estimated I only needed one or two more to get complete hair removal. So far the results...

I was looking to improve my skin tone and rid my face, neck and chest of the red veins and brown spots. The first procedure was a bit uncomfortable due to my fair skin, I am a natural redhead. Dr Fabi and staff did excellent job of making me comfortable during the procedure and easing my... READ MORE

I bought a package of 3 BBL/IPL sessions, at Dr LeBeaus open house, last fall. My goal was to remove age spots, remove sun damage, reduce pore size and have a more youthful appearance. It really worked!!! I followed the first and last BBL/IPL session with a laser treatment. I was so pleased... READ MORE

I've seen a variety of dermatologists and cosmetic specialists over the years for everything from acne to anti-aging. That is until I found Dr. Omeed Memar and his team. Located conveniently a mere steps away from Chicago's Millennium Park and the Mag Mile, Dr. Memar is truly the nicest,... READ MORE

I am so excited for my IPL procedure this Wednesday! Dr. Sabrina Fabi in UTC/La Jolla took SO much time to explain what different options would work for me, answered all of my questions thoughtfully and patiently, and made sure what I decided to do fit perfectly within my budget and my goals....

Hello, I have had 2 IPL Treatments but i also incorporate the Fraxel Dual repair with this and have gotten Beautiful results. The additional Fraxel treatment is $1500.00 with this plus a skincare system that cost $4000 to maintain the results. This is the way to go you have to take good care of... READ MORE

When I grew up in Southern California we didn't have SPF higher than 4 and we didn't know about how damaging the sun was, especially to fair-skinned blondes like myself. Now that I'm in my 50s I went to a cosmetic dermatologist to fix my brown spots and sun damage. I have received a couple IPL... READ MORE

In August 2013, a month after I turned 28, I was convinced by a medical esthetician with 14 years of experience to try IPL for some mild hormonal acne (which was temporary anyway btw..) and some mild sun damage (mostly freckles). I had very good skin overall and generally started visiting her... READ MORE

My experience was fabulous. From the time I walked in the door and was greeted by friendly concierge. I was then offered a beverage and had my parking validated. I was amazed at how beautiful the waiting area was. It was more like a beautufil living room, very tranquil and cozy. I was greeted by... READ MORE

I had one IPL treatment when I was 21 years old and experienced the uneven texture, facial fat disappearing over the course of a year, orange peel skin texture, and more. I was told by the doctor that it was impossible for IPL to do this, but you can actually see the line where the laser went,... READ MORE

Dr. Harvey Jay treated my rosacea about 1.5 months ago and I'm very happy with the results. I have suffered from Rosacea since I was about 13 years old. Every time I went to a doctor, they would tell me there was no cure for rosacea and prescribe me something that just ended up irritating my... READ MORE

I have had rosacea since my teens. On and off for about 10 years I've gotten IPL and my skin always reacts well. I'm 32 now. I definitely noticed a reduction in redness and tiny thread veins after doing IPL. Unfortunately they always come back, but only after about 6 months or one year. I... READ MORE

I have read a lot of personal stories about the damage IPL has cause many people. My heart goes out to all everyone of them. The physical and psychological damage is devastating.
