I usually get about 3 -4 IPL photo facials a year to help with wrinkles and sun spots. This was far and above the best IPL photo facial I have ever received. I could see results as soon as that night as far as seeing results and have already suggested to friends that they consider using this... READ MORE

I'm 54 this month. I have pretty decent skin, but years of living in New Mexico and running outdoors, even with sunscreen have me worrying I'll age sooner than I should. I also have had rosacea and small spider veins around my nose, and many areas of dark spotting from sun/acne on my... READ MORE

I had some redness, large pores and a few brown spots.. got the IPL this afternoon. My tech was very thorough in doing a few patch tests and measuring my skin tone for the right setting on the laser... stung just a bit, but can't feel or see anything different after a few hours. In fact my... READ MORE

Treated by Megan at Dr.Weiler Plastic surgery in Baton Rouge. The treatment was for brown spots and sun damage on my face. She was absolutely perfect, the office and equipment looked brand new and so clean, the staff was so friendly. Best of all it worked so well! Will continue to travel from... READ MORE

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 highly recommend using Dr. Bunkis at, Orange county plastic surgery. My procedure was quick and painless. The results were outstanding. After my IPL my skin felt youthful and tight. It even erased a few of my sunspots just in my first treatment! The staff was on point and very professional... READ MORE

I was tired looking at the brown spots on my face, I feel people were looking at them and not me. I came to Dr. Vasisht office to see if anything could be done. The Pro's-the Genesis laser was relaxing & helps with the finer lines, IPL-say goodbye to the brown spot, tad painful (just near the... READ MORE

28 year old mother with increase of freckles since giving birth to my daughter. My self confidence had been suffering due to the increase of freckles. I went to Dr. Huang to have IPL done. The procedure was pretty quick, slightly painful but something that you can handle. I feel like the... READ MORE

I've never been so disappointed or disturbed by a doctor of her office. Many reasons, but I'll focus on where she ripped me off. While at her office on 2/15/16 I asked her to zap a few broken capillaries. I was charged $300 (I was to have it done more effectively and for a fraction of the... READ MORE

Having years of freckles getting darker as I've aged, I decided to try IPL. My skin was beautiful like a baby's bottom. My only issue was the darker freckles. During my consultation I was told that 3 - 4 sessions should give me needed results and that a lower intensity would be used since I... READ MORE

I went for a consult for an IPL session, after keep getting my forehead burnt at La Jolla Laser Clinic. Dr.Groff gave a very thorough explanation and recommendation that will fit my skin type (I'm Asian) and the pros and cons of different treatment plans. Jacob was very thorough and... READ MORE

I went to New Image Anti-Aging Laser Spa to be treated for mild rosacea with IPL. I have had IPL done before at a dermatologist's office with no problems or side effects. However, going to New Image for this treatment, though a less expensive choice, turned out to be a big mistake and the worst... READ MORE

I had an IPL done a couple months ago and two attempts brought minimal to no result. I contacted a complaint to the esthetician that did the procedure via email but haven't gotten anything in response. What a waste of $500. I had similar treatments done somewhere else in the past and had great... READ MORE

I wanted a gentle but effective treatment that would reduce the redness in my face. I am fair and did not want something that would require time off from work. The IPL was worth it after just one treatment. I will absolutely follow up with another treatment in six months. I do not require as... READ MORE

I wanted to get rid of some age spots on my face. Cindy told me that the lighter spots would take more time to disappear than the darker ones. I'm almost two weeks out from my procedure and still have a few tiny scabs scattered near my hair line. The two bigger spots I wanted rid of have... READ MORE

So I had the Ellipse IPL (I'm told it's new) last Friday with Cory at Marina Plastic Surgery in Marina Del Rey. I've had the pretty agressive fraxel dual about 3 times in the last 5/7 years. I always hate the downtime, swelling redness peeling ect but loved the results. Well I didn't have that... READ MORE

I had some unwanted blood vessels on my face and Dr Wenker was able to remove these. I had slight bruising, but I am very pleased with the result. It was not very painful. It felt like a rubber band snapping my skin, but not bad. He gave me an ice pack after the procedure. His office is new... READ MORE

Did not do my research. Do NOT let anyone go near you with this device. Radiation burns from the radio frequencies in this device. My eyes have sunken in with my entire face changing shape. Go to laser damage support forum. This is real and doctors refuse to acknowledge the severe reactions... READ MORE

I am very fair skinned and would often get very red I blush easily too. I felt like I looked like an alcoholic. I went to Dr Reukle and he suggested IPL. It made my skin amazing. I get complements all the time. Now I go five times a year to maintain the results. Jenn is aesthetician and... READ MORE

I had IPL done at the same time as the Titan Laser.  The cost for the IPL was about $350 The doctor put a cold numbing cream on me and I didn't feel anything - just a painless "shock".  However, she zapped part of my lip by accident and I felt that and it hurt all day. My... READ MORE
