So I am a fan of lasers to keep skin looking good as long as one can to avoid surgery for as long as possible. I have done numerous laser treatments. Hands down, Kendal @ NVPS in North Phoenix, AZ is the best. She has done a some photofacial treatments for me now and WOW, what a difference... READ MORE

I came in to have my brown spots on my face looked at. Years of sun damage had freckled my cheeks and sides of my face. When I first came in I was a little skeptical, since I was a man and men do not typically go to spas. But I was really happy I walked through the door to Synergy. The staff was... READ MORE

I have always had fair skin with freckles and some brown spots. I went yesterday to get the first out of 4 AFT laser treatments, and so far so good. I left the Med Spa feeling like I had a sun burn, but within an hour that burning was gone. When I got home I noticed all of my freckles and brown... READ MORE

Dr. Kessler's office is beautiful and I was well taken care of when I arrived, as well as experienced wonderful follow-up afterward. His staff is professional and attentive. My IPL Photofacial achieved the results I wanted -- my sunspots were lightened and my complexion was evened out. I am... READ MORE

I had started my path to facial rejuvenation with Sculptra, then botox, and then Ulthera. I am really happy with the results that all of these treatments have provided. I started BBL treatments last month and would describe it as an important part of the overall puzzle of rejuvenating my face.... READ MORE

So I've actually received photofacials for a long time now and I'd like to share my experience because I think a lot of people go into them expecting different results than they receive. I used to get IPL about 8 years ago when I was still in high school and was dealing with acne scars. What I... READ MORE

My dermatologist referred me to a dermatology and laser center for sun spots and red veins on my face from rosacea. I saw the dermatologist at the laser center and he recommended a minimum of 3 sessions of IPL (Photorejuvenation). I put on the given cream an hour before the procedure, but... READ MORE

My husband gave me a gift certificate for a photo facial at a spa called Radiant Skin and Laser. I was so nervous but I'm already so happy. It barely hurt at all and after one session my skin already looks better. The staff was very professional and the spa was very clean. Thanks Hubby and... READ MORE

Discoloration and sun spots on my face and chest are almost gone after 3 treatments. Unbelievable results! Minor discomfort, but it's so worth it! No down time- just feels like a slight sunburn. The redness went away after about and hour and I was able to apply face make up. Dr. Rafal and... READ MORE

Being raised in the sun and with getting older, my neck was filled with sun damage. The first two photofacials, I did not notice much of a difference. They said it would take at least 5 treatments to see any long term results and then I would need to follow-up once to twice a year. After 4 once... READ MORE

I had 4 sessions that combined a quick 1-2 pass sweep of microdermabrasion, followed by intense pulsed light treatment. I had initially purchased a package on Lifebooker for IPL to treat dark under eye circles and I was upsold (when I got to spa) on micro +IPL. The MD remarked that dark circle... READ MORE

Best investment in my appearance ever! WOW! At 53, the skin on my face and neck was really starting to sag, my cheeks were splotchy red, my neck was full-on sun damaged red, and the skin at my jawline was getting droopy. No more. Everything I just listed is gone! Completely... READ MORE

I had my first IPL treatment on my chest about ten days ago, it was relatively painless and I need no pain medication or numbing cream. Immediately afterward it felt as if I had a sunburn and was red and irritated. This lasted for about a day. The spots on my chest started to darken and within a... READ MORE

Personal goals were to get rid of some of the spots and blotchy areas on my face. The procedure was fast and relatively painless. My skin felt very clean and alive afterward, and I believe it had a vibrant glow. I will definitely do the procedure again occasionally for skin health maintenance. I... READ MORE

I had high hopes for photofacial..i did a ton of research before getting it done and after 2 treatments combined with bleaching cream i see zero results. at my last appt the dr even noticed that my skin wasnt improving and said that 3 more treatments might not work. she didnt want me to waste my...

Last year, I developed a penny sized sun spot on my cheek. Because I'm so pale, it stands out horribly. I visited my local med spa and was told I would only need two IPL photofacial sessions to remove it. I went ahead and bought a package of three sessions, thinking my remaining session could be...

I just got back from my first of three treatments. I am of Chinese decent and initially the doctor said I wasn't a good candidate due to too much melanin (dark hair, dark eyes). But I went for a test spot anyway. Nothing adverse happened, so here I am now. I feel nothing out of the ordinary,... READ MORE

I purchased a package of photofacials and microderms - 5 of each to alternate every two weeks. I didn't see any result from the laser. They aren't lying to you when they say it feels like a rubber band snapping on your skin. I did, however, enjoy the Microderm. My face always felt so nice after... READ MORE

I went to a medspa and had the photofacial on my face & declotte. This was three days ago. When they did it they stated the redness would go away in a few hours. My declotte started out burning for most of the first night. I spent the evening with an icepack on it. It's still red and it's... READ MORE
