My first photofacial was offered to me for free after having a surgical procedure done by Dr. B in Toronto. Immediately after, I noticed my pore were really small and clean. Fine lines were less noticeable. I looked more awake. The results lasted 4 months so far in terms of fine lines. My... READ MORE

With each of five treatments I was given a new reason why I wasn't seeing any results....had to start light in case I burned...waited too long between appointments (though I wasn't aware that that was a recommendation)...needed to go higher yet on the settings...need to try without the...

Initially I sought out IPL for stage 1 roscea on my nose/cheeks. I had a localized treatment in this area 10 years ago and it was very helpful. After some reserach, I decided to go for not only rosecea - but to target the hyperpigmentation on my chest, neck and face as well. In the initial... READ MORE

I have sensitive combination skin. My skin felt tight after the facial and I was horrified with the results. Though the Rosacea improved considerably my cheeks are still rough and I have lost the dewy moisturised skin I had before. Having said that i did get complimented on my skin.Overall, I... READ MORE

I have bad pigmentation from sun damage, and when I had my last son, I got a horrible pregnancy mask that never went away... For 5 years, I have been wearing a facial tanner to "try" to even out my face... But it didnt and I just clogged my pores ... Bad... So anyways, I Had a micro... READ MORE

I wanted to get a photofacial because I heard that it can help get rid of broken capillaries. After the 1st session, I did notice alot of dark brown specks on the surface of my skin immediately after. After a week, they all flaked off. My bigger spots faded. My second session, my skin did...

Reason for choosing was it was a deal; 4 sessions for 300 dollars. Also because my pigmentation and fine lines are really getting me down. Im 27 but look at least 5 years older than all my friends my age. The lady in the salon pointed out my aging skin when i was getting a wax and told me about... READ MORE

I am a 44 year old woman who has rosacea. My face always seemed red on my cheeks,nose and on my chin. I've had one session done a month ago and I can already see a difference. I have another session this week and I'm so excited. It worked for me :) READ MORE

I had an IPL from a clinic by a licensed nurse practioner. Using an IPL vasculite by Lumenis, he hyperpigmented the melasma and sun spots on my face. They became much darker! I was so upset. Later on, a dermatologist said he could fix it with a Palomar fractional laser. He did lighten the spots.... READ MORE

I won a drawing for a free procedure at the place I have been getting alma treatments so I decided to try a photofacial. The procedure was done 4 days ago, so far I have had a lot of dark spots surface but I know that is to be expected. It felt like little snaps when I got it done, and I... READ MORE

45yrs young with sun damage and some freckles. I was very impressed. My aesthetician Cherry at The Skin Center in Pittsburgh was fabulous. I took one look at her skin and said "I want your skin". She prescribed 4 chemical peels and 4 ipl treatments on alternating months. I've... READ MORE

I am very satisfied with the results, I had it done two weeks ago and almost all my freckles and age spots are gone. I really recommend it, but find a good doctor READ MORE

This price is for one IPL photofacial and one microdermabrasion combined. I have white/olive skin, had to stop tanning two months prior to treatment. (hard for me!, but was told I needed to do it). First they put numbing cream on my face, then cleansed my face and chest. It really wasn't... READ MORE

I didn't do enough homework before I did this. I had two sessions. The first one was on my face, neck and chest. My face was fine, my chest was burnt, painful and did not seem normal. I went back a second time and only did my face since I didn't have any problems. The second time I... READ MORE

I had a series of 5-6 treatments, 6 weeks apart; total cost $1800. Had terrible rosacea and sun damage. There is definitely down-time, that is, you won't be "presentable" in public until 10 days. But I tell you, it transformed my skin. I can't say enough good things about my... READ MORE

Great results after first session. Somewhat painful...will take to some sort of pain killer before my 2nd session next week. Probably won't go through anymore. READ MORE

I am 44 with Irish-Scot ancestry and the brown spots on my face have been bothering me for the past few years, so I signed up for 3 treatments for fotofacial including a laser for fine lines following each treatment. I could not find any negative reviews on the internet, but now that I think... READ MORE

The treatment felt fine, almost like a little bit of a snap, very tolerable. there was a light although I wore protective glasses, it was obvious it was bright & it felt warm to the skin. The experience was easy, I can see how well it works although I didn't want it to remove my mole... READ MORE

I am 40, very fair, delicate complexion (green eyes, lt brwn hair). Though I have never sunbathed in my life, I had sun damage just from being outside in general (I have since learned never to leave the house without 50 SPF on my face... world of difference!). I am very prone to broken blood... READ MORE

I have had one photofacial, I got it a few days ago. Already I can tell that the areas I was concerned about -- some hyperpigmentation spots from acne due to hormonal birth control -- have not been helped, whereas some areas on my cheeks I didn't even "see" hyperpigmentation have... READ MORE
