2 years ago I searched and searched online to find someone who may have posted about a similar experience, I was desperate for help and peace of mind over how to deal with self-harm wounds. I am in my mid 20s, with fair-skin that tans well in the summer, and I work in the medical field myself. I... READ MORE

Hi! I had this done once before by a derm doc. He was 500 bucks and really messed up my procedure. Dr Shaw said it sounded like he had the settings too high. Hmm do you think? Let's say if you do this on your nose and you get a HUGE purple bulbous nose as you are leaving the office that this is... READ MORE

In 2012 I was in a severe fire accident and sustained 14% burns which were 2nd and 3rd degree. I was in hospital for 30 days and got 5 skin grafts. Pulse dye lasee treatment changed my life my significantly improving the colour of my burns from a deep purple and red to a white/skin... READ MORE

I had cellulite reduction done on my legs at a different office that left me with distasteful bruising so I came to Advanced Dermatology and saw Dr. Martinez-Diaz to have PDL treatments done. He was so gentle that it didn't even hurt but the results were amazing! The bruising completely... READ MORE

Dr Fischer and her team of dermatology residents provided the perfect pulsed dye laser treatment for both my rosacea and a broken vessel on my forehead. It was very comforting to know that all the staff had been treated previously and that they could explain the experience and post treatment... READ MORE

I had near perfect skin other than telangiectasia and some freckles. I didn't do my research and went to see a dermalogist. She said the downtime would be minimal. WRONG. 13 days later I got pin prick scarring, pits on my skin, which is now dry and breaking out and I fear the worst is yet to... READ MORE

I recently had an IPL and Pulse Dye Laser treatment with Dr. Mulholland for my red facial veins. After just one treatment, I noticed a significant reduction in the redness and visible blood vessels located on my nose, chin, and cheeks. Even though, I have had similar treatments, elsewhere, I...

I have had both IPL and Pulse Dye for my Rosacea. There is NO WAY you will get a full facial deep V beam treatment and be good a few days later! NO WAY!!! It takes at least 7 to 10 Days to look like your back to normal. The IPL took me 1 to 2 days. Depending on the aggressive treatment it may... READ MORE

Dr Emer is a laser wizard. I have been red-faced for years and couldn't find any creams that worked. Dr Emer was able to drastically reduce the redness on my forehead, nose, and cheeks. I was so excited I sent my sister, who has the same problem but even worse with little visible blood... READ MORE

Hi. I've been suffering from a blush on my both cheeks for many years. I think it's called "diffuse redness" or erythema. The redness is due to vascular vessels - it disappears for a second when pressing the skin with a finger and comes back a second later after releasing the finger. I've been... READ MORE

The office is beautiful. The office staff is friendly and attentive. You will love everything about this place as long as you receive the results expected. In the event you don't, be prepared to be dismissed without much care for your concerns.I had this procedure done to remove several brown... READ MORE

I had the pulse dye laser treatment on a portocath scar. As a result of breast cancer, I felt my scar was problematic and ugly. The procedure was quick and painless. The slight redness provided by the lazer faded quickly, leaving behind smooth and wrinkle free skin. The procedure itself was... READ MORE

Dr K literally saved me from hobbling everywhere and tons of pain because of a wart that had literally grown into a major nerve on my foot. It took one laser treatment (which felt like being snapped with a rubber band) and a few weeks to heal, and I've been free of the bugger for months! The... READ MORE

I've been a patient of Dr. Karamanoukian since I moved to Los Angeles 4 years ago. He is extremely knowledgeable and talented in all aspects of skin health. I've had several skin concerns that he has addressed for me including mole removals, rosacea, vascular lesions, scar repair, fixing... READ MORE

I have lived forty three years with a large port wine stain covering my chest. My Mom was always so sweet when I was a child calling it a stork bite ( the stork didn't want to let me to go). As I got into middle school I was teased about it, having hickeys ect. When I got engaged to my fabulous... READ MORE

I had the pdl treatment to lessen the redness of hypertrophic scars from a breastlift. At 9 months post op, my scars were still bright red, raised, and wide. The laser absolutely helped with the coloring. They had faded to light pink by the third session. I'm now having scar revision surgery... READ MORE

I have had 2 sessions of pulsed dye laser treatment to reduce a tummy tuck and belly button scar that is 6 months old. My scars were hypertrophic at 6 months and the scar across the belly was still vascular. I am of slim build and my tummy tuck is very tight with not much skin removed. After... READ MORE

Not worth it. Treated for a venous lake on lip. The lake is still there, same size after 2 treatments. The worst outcome possible however is lightening of the skin around the spot, making the lip look freakish and unnatural and doesn't blend with the red of the adjacenet areas. In all, a... READ MORE
