Huge Improvement to my Quality of Life - Chelsea Skin & Laser, NYC

I've been getting IPL done for probably 12 years now. As a kid I had really rosy cheeks, or as the doctor described it, large surface veins. They would flare up all the time, like if I was drinking or spent too much time in the sun, and it was bad enough that I could feel the heat on my face,... READ MORE

Not All IPL's Are the Same - La Jolla, CA
