I had a total of 5 IPL photofacials 3 with one lady and at the first place I went and 1 with another lady there. I didn't get any results with the first 3 treatments but with the last one I finally saw some results. It all depends on the esthetician that you use. The last one at the first... READ MORE

I got IPL in Busan, South Korea fall 2008. I wanted to fade my freckles and correct photoaging. My freckles totally disappeared, but the doctor didn't do my eyelids so I still had freckles there. Was a little red for about an hour and after that felt fine. My skin looked much clearer and... READ MORE

You can see from the picture how my skin was really discolored! Partly this was from some acne that I had picked at (I started getting acne at 28! mostly from stress I think) and also you can see a lot of freckles (this photo was taken in August 2009 and I had been out in the sun a lot that...

I just had IPL form a derm to reduce broken capillaries and redness from sun damage/rosacea. It did hurt a bit. It felt like a tiny needle prick each time. The nose are was very sensitive. Might be worth the anesthesia if you are sensitive to pain.It burned afterward for about 3 hours and looked... READ MORE

I had some tiny veins on my face, and a bit of Rosacea. The treatment completely eliminated one larger vein I hated in particular that was on my cheek, and it appears that most of the small veins are gone.I did get a couple of tiny blisters around my nose that are almost healed now, and a...

It was really free, yah, because I originally had a micro laser peel in early December 2008. After the procedure (several weeks), I looked like I was ran over by a tire leaving a pattern on my face from the tools used. To make it worse, I am a model and now I am completely insecure about my face... READ MORE

I started developing two tiny light brown freckle type spots on my cheeks and doctor recommended Fotofacial. I received IPL treatment on my face, during which I was in agonizing pain. It felt like I was being burned by a hot Iron. The technician kept saying it is painful but that is how it... READ MORE

Well, day 19 and and I can say without a doubt that for me, it was not worth it. there are two areas that look like scarring from the process.... ughhh....    Most importantly, if you are planning on having this process done know going into it that you will need more than one treatment...

Pros: FIRST SESSION did seem to lighten some of the brown spots and sun damaged areas of my skin. i was encouraged. they said this process of lightening would continue as the "laser brought the pigment to the surface and it was exfoliated or flaked off" they recommended using... READ MORE

Let me first of all say that I was already experiencing fat loss under eyes and in upper cheeks. My aim with ipl was to improve skin in cheek area which had become crepey. The beautician recommended that this would improve the appearance including the production of new collagen which I was very... READ MORE

I had a great experience at CLD. I went in for a consultation on how to reduce the appearance of sun damage on my face. Dr. Wu has great expertise and made me feel at ease right away. He had great recommendations on treatments and was able to get me in for an IPL procedure immediately! It was... READ MORE

I am so pleased with results of my second visit with Dr. Lanchoney. Brow lines, smile lines around mouth, and crow feet have been noticeably softened. Age spots on cheeks are disappearing and overall skin appears much younger. I would recommend the center for this procedure and their other... READ MORE

This is my first cosmetic review and I couldn't find a better business to start with. I am absolutely thrilled with my experience at Luxury. I had IPL (laser treatment) on my face to treat my freckles. I didn't know that my skin could look so good! After just one treatment, all of my freckles... READ MORE

I had unwanted hair on my face that had made me self-conscious for years. I made an appointment with Dr. Hartman to discuss this issue and he informed me of a new device on the market called Nordlys. I had tried electrolysis in the past, which was painful and didn't give me the results I was... READ MORE

I have had IPL for broken capillaries 4 times before this treatment.

I am 45 yrs old and have moderate sun damage from my youth. I also have thick, ruddy Irish skin that is prone to acne, large pores, the whole bit. I decided to get the IPL package with my aesthetician, whom I really trust. For $400, I can have multiple treatments. This way she feels like she can... READ MORE

I'm in my 50s and I purchased a package of 3 full face IPL treatments for mild rosacea and few age spots. My skin is very light and the age spots were very light brown, both about 5-7 mm in diameter. It worked very well for the redness. The brown spots were additionally treated with the laser.... READ MORE

I love IPL and over the last 5 years I have done many IPL procedures. For me IPL works very well. I am Caucasian with very light skin. I started doing IPLs because I wanted better complexion, "flawless" look of the skin with smaller pores, less pigmental discoloration and redness. That is... READ MORE

I've suffered from hyper pigmentation since I was a teenager. It something I've always been self conscious about. I've tried so many different products and nothing ever seemed to work. I decided to try a laser and I can honestly say I was shocked by the outcome. Carla at Marina Plastic Surgery... READ MORE
