BEWARE this woman ruined my face - other reviews seem FAKE
By sweetbabyjesus on 3/3/2010
i had ONE ipl treatment after going in for a facial. instead, i was sat down and given my "consultation," or hard sell for ipl due to some very minor broken capillaries. i'm 31 and have always been told i have great skin and look like i'm in my early 20s. w/i wks i noticed a change in texture of my skin. as months went by so did all the volume in my face. it has been traumatic to say the least. these other reviews seem awfully suspicious too. i remember reading at least two other negative ones w/ experiences like mine and they are now gone. wtf?? anyway, google IPL and FAT LOSS b/f ever considering one of these treatments. i was NOT planning on doing this and just got talked into it. the biggest mistake of my life. i now look 10-20 yrs older.
I didn't go back

The staff was very kind, but I came out with awful ruined and scarred skin after 3 ipl treatments. I was scheduled for 4, but chickened out on the 4th. It's been traumatic, they advertise themselves as servicing "ethnic skin." I came in for sun spots, I came out with skin that I don't think I can repair. I'm was 33 and the services were done in May and June of 2010. If you plan on coming, do all of your research, I'm not confident that ipl treatments are the way to go. The promised results are hype. I came out with scars, premature and wrinkled skin, fat loss, and my skin is dull and dry. The nice glow I had is aboslutely gone, and this I all saw after my 3 treatment, devastating.
Laser Hair Removal
By vanessaC on 10/22/2009
I made the decision to laser remove the hair under my arms and SLR has been a great place to do it. The location is convenient to reach, extremely clean, and welcoming. The staff is effusively kind and treats you with personal care and concern. They turned what was initially a scary proposition into a pleasant experience, with little to no pain. I am very happy with my results. I highly recommend this place.

I been battling with adult acne for 4 years. You can imagine I have tried everything under the sun. NOTHING WORKED!!! Then came an angel name Carole Burns from Skin Laser Rejuvenation. We were introduced by a good friend who gave Carole rave reviews. She then personally spoke to me with kind reassurance that she could definitely help me. First I must say, she has a very welcoming atmosphere. Then, began the work. No pain at all, just the sensation of knowing work was getting done. Carole was very comforting throughout the entire process. Afterwards, my skin felt brand new. The true prize came when in just a matter of a day, I could see how my skin itself was more even & clear. I didn't realize until this visit that not only did I have acne scarring, but my complexion was blotchy. After this one treatment, I could see more even toned & refined skin. The dark acne scars have gotten lighter. I've had only 2 extremely minor pimples come on my chin in a 2 week timespan where as before, I would break out in 2 to 5 different places everyday. Can you imagine how happy I am? I also had very oily skin. The previous products I was using made it even worse. The products that Carole sent me home with has kept my skin extremely balanced & it just glows. Breaking out everyday for 4 years made me cry because I saw no hope. Now, not only can't I stop looking in the mirror at the awe of my progress, but I can finally look at myself and smile! See ya next visit! :-)

I came to SLR for a mini-medi facial and it was fantastic. The esthetician was pleasant and knowledgeable, she inquired about my skin care routine and provided helpful advice on how to deal with my combination skin. The facial felt wonderful, my skin felt great and I would definitely return again!
Nice Staff, Great Results
By SofiaDBella on 4/27/2011
The first time I met with Carole, my face was a mess. I had a lot of scars, a bit of acne and uneven skin tone. Not only is she a knowledgeable, sweet woman, but she is thorough in her work and is passionate about seeing results for her patients. I trust her, and that says a lot with all the bad experiences I've had in trying to tackle my skin issues over the years. It's not cheap, but if I can now stare in the mirror with confidence, you're damn right I'll be returning to her office for treatments. I am now also trying out laser hair removal with her. I will report back with those results as well!
Amazing Results for this Bride to Be!!!
By InTheCityGirl on 12/5/2006
I came to see Carol 6 months before my wedding 2 years ago to have IPL on my face to remove some sun spots and have hair removal all over. The results were beyond my wildest dreams. The IPL not only removed the sun spots after 2 treatments, my chronic adult acne vaporized never to return. I have been going to see Carol faithfully for facials and hair removal ever since (going on 3 years). I would highly recommend her to anyone needing laser work of any kind!
Your skin is in good hands!
By audramakuch on 1/8/2007
I know a lot of women who have had bad laser experiences, and I am new to New York City, so I was nervous going to my first laser hair removal session at a new place. But no more! The results I got at Skin Laser Rejuvenation were amazing! My underarms are hair free (really, I can not stop showing my friends!) and the office is cozy and very clean. Carole and her staff are honest (about the procedure, the cost and the potential results) and there is no high pressure sales tactics. I merely heard my options and was not pressed for more than I wanted or could afford. I absolutely recommend this office to others! Go-you will be glad you did!
My skin has never been in better hands!
By brioche_toast on 7/21/2007
I've been a returning customer for deep pore cleansing and spot IPL treatment since my initial 3 full sessions of IPL (I had quite a severe case of acne). Nothing has worked better in the past than the treatment I've had at SLR. My skin is now very much in control and clear from past persistent acne. I've come a long way without scar and my pores are perfectly cute and small now! Carole really understand my skin needs.
For visible results visit Carole Burns
By amineo on 10/23/2007
I've been seeing Carole Burns for the past two months and I just can't stop raving about her! Everytime I go to her office I get treated like a VIP, and you never know what fashion A list you will be sitting next to you her waiting area. I often compete with Margarita Missoni to get time in with Carole (I love you Margarita, but you know its true!). When you go to SLR you go there for results and results is what she gives you. Her product line is top of the line medical grade and it ranges from Obagi, to Skinceuticals which I love! She'll also be one of the few carrying the PEAU line (I can't wait). There's a reason why Missoni, and Betsy Johnson go to her...She's the best!
