I don't have any sun damage as I grew up in a sunless place and have been militant about suncream since I left. I never tan or use sunbeds

I am doing IPL for PIHP from monthly acne. For those of those that have it, you will know that it can be very difficult to treat. I've tried retin A, BHA treatments and microneedling with vitamin C with precious little effect and in the …

Let's all enjoy a moment of pointing and laughing - at me.

I'm a Master Esthetician at a medi-spa. We use Alma lasers, and I've personally performed IPL on numerous patients with no complaints. That said, I've heard of one African American co-worker being burned by IPL and saw the burns a few days later. Another patient suffered burns, but I only heard about this …

I had my first IPL treatment yesterday after month of debating if I should do it.

I was very afraid about the pain and how I would look after this treatment, but I want to get rid of 2 broken capilaries around my nose, a lttle one on my upper lip and a little brown spot on my cheekbones.
So I went to an plastic surgeon with a laser and medical cosmetic office.
The procedure …

I was terrified of IPL for a long time because of people's horrible reactions, but I was also sick of my freckles, so I took the plunge. I did a lot of research and decided to go in for a treatment and I couldn't be happier.

I think what made my experience very distinct from some of the horror stories was the fact that I am the perfect candidate for IPL: extremely fair skin …

I went into the office to have a laser treatment for my acne. I was told to have 9 a week apart but stopped at 4 because I wasn't seeing many results. This procedure is TERRIBLE, and so glad I stopped. I'm 24 and had smooth oily skin besides some pimples. I now have wrinkles around the eyes and big bags under my eyes. I also have scars from the laser and tissue loss in my cheeks …Read more

This review is for IPL w/ a Sciton BBL done by a surgeon specializing in cosmetic procedures. I recommend extreme caution! My experience, at almost a month after the tx, is not good - lot of downtime, not enough improvement to justify the cost, and adverse effects that made the overall result worse than before the tx. I have rosacea, acne and vy oily skin, late 40's but few lines. I …Read more

I am a little over two weeks out from my first-of-four IPL procedure done on my face and my chest. I've had alot of sun damage over the years that I wanted to correct.

During: The bright light and the anticipation made me jump! I didn't take any pain meds (dumb) or numbing gel and I'd give it a 6 out of 10. It hurt worse around the typical areas (nose and mouth) and …

I signed up for a series of 3 Fotofacial RF IPL treatments with a provider who was experienced in lasers and treating ethnic skin.

My skin is sensitive and prone to hyperpigmentation.

Prior to the procedure, numbing cream was applied to my face for 20 minutes and then washed off. I found that this helped immensely in managing my wimpy self during the zapping!

I …

DO NOT GET AN IPL, FRAXEL, OR ANY SIMILAR PROCEDURE!!! It is not worth the risk!! I have been a member here for many years, but never wrote a review. However, this is so important, that it needs to be said. I thought I did my research and went to a highly regarded Medical Spa that was operated by a doctor for my IPL. That was two weeks ago. I am now suffering SEVERE damage and I am going to …Read more
