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

I have to say I am very pleased with the results of my laser treatment for redness on my face. After a vacation in Hawaii I decided to time to take action on some sun damage, redness & broken capillaries on my face. I am white female in my late 40s & have probably spent too much time in the sun... READ MORE

I went to Dr. Strimling for a series of skin tightening and IPL treatments with the Sciton laser. I have rosacea and some acne scars, along with large pore sizes. I am very happy with the results. The laser was less painful than the IPL treatments I had at another clinic. He is very... READ MORE

Went to Dr. Khalifeh to get laser done to the skin above my knees. I am 54 years old and workout a lot. I was getting ready to do a figure show no matter how good my diet was and how hard I hit the gym my skin on my legs was sagging. Dr. Khalifeh recommended I get laser to my leg area. I had...

Hello, back around Memorial Day this year I had a standard IPL treatment for a few sun spots on my face. I've had the treatments in the past successfully at another clinic. This Esthetician said she had a trick to get the spots out. She proceeded to put eyeliner on the spots before IPL. I... READ MORE

I had 5 treatments of IPL in 2014 once a month from February to July. I saw very little difference, if any, after one year. I find my pores are now larger and more pulled looking. I also now have a very bad case of rosacea which I have never had in my life and it cropped up in September of 2014... READ MORE

So I just got an IPL treatment done. It was not as bad as I thought it would be and it was very fast! There was a light then a zap (like an elastic hitting the skin) It's only been 4 days but I haven't noticed any sloughing off of skin or anything. I have two more to go so we will see. The...

100% thrilled with the results! I have fair skin with mild freckles and soft wrinkles. My skin looks at least 5 years younger (if not more, because I can't really remember when I last had this clear, vibrant skin!), and my freckles have never been this invisible. I have been instructed to always... READ MORE

I am so happy with the results from my IPL laser treatment on my face and chest. Awa was great at explaining everything that was going to happen. She made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Ching did a TCA peel under my eyes and Restylane injected into my tear troughs. He is so kind and has a... READ MORE

I got a groupon for Bellava spa in Bedford Hills NY for IPL, I was really nervous as my previous IPL caused unsightly swelling.This time they did it lightly and I looked fine immediately after. a few of the spots are turning brown.Id rather have lasers underdone than overdone .This experience...

I wanted an alternative to an eyelift, and had heard about IPL. Dr. Pelle is my dermatologist, based on two factors: 1) I like her and 2) she's in my neighborhood. I gladly paid for the IPL, endured the follow up peeling, etc. and.... to my absolute HORROR, she left me scarred with deep... READ MORE

Hello everybody! IF you are living in the Brampton, Caledon, Mississauga area and you are looking for great skin care at a fair price check out Brampton Cosmetic Surgery Clinic and your procedure done by Michelle. She is a medical aesthetician. I have been told there is a big difference... READ MORE

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. I also didn't like being charged $200 for 15 minutes, and then have 5 minutes going to jotting down stuff on a piece of paper, and... READ MORE

IPL at spa in Highland Ranch, good deal 3 for $190 or so. IPL for many brown spots, rosacea and small broken blood spots on my cheek. First treatment... So far it's been fine. It was bearable and I do plan to go back for 3 more treatments. I am happy I had it done. I think the final result... READ MORE

Recently, I got a lot of dark spots on my face. My friend referred me this place. After I did the IPL with Ms. Amy, I am happy the result. Spots are lighter and less. I also used the products that Ms. Amy suggested me to use. I follow the instruction and use them everyday, I can feel my skin is... READ MORE

I can't say enough nice things about Dr. Honrado and his staff. I recently had two IPL treatments for sun damage to my face, neck & chest and am very happy with the results. I'm 50, fair/thin-skinned with mild/moderate sun damage & brown spots, and after my first IPL treatment most of the brown... READ MORE

I am seeing Lauren at The Larabee Aesthetic Center for IPL Photo Facial treatments. My neck was burned during CO2 laser surgery in 2011 by a surgeon in Kirkland. Finding the Larabee Aesthetic center and Lauren has been a blessing. With every treatment I see improvement. Prior to seeing Lauren... READ MORE

I have always been careful to wear sunscreen every day, but I have very fair skin and I guess the damage added up and hit a tipping point this last year. I have also always struggled with acne and only recently found something that works for me (oral spironolactone - wish I had found it 20 years... READ MORE

I had my first IPL on 7/24/2015 and my second on 8/28/2015. I had asked them to use low settings and so far, everything looks okay. Is there any females at all who can post positive (greater than 5 year) results? So far, I have read only positive male experiences and no female. I'm really... READ MORE
