AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! I had a horrible experience with another laser dermatologist. Dr. Rispler had to fix it! He was amazing! It didn't cost that much compared to the other Dr. that did not know how to use his own machine! I was so disappointed that I had to spend more money and to another laser dermatologist. My cop friend recommended me to this place, and of course, I am going to believe my cop friend! I am so glad that I did! Every step was correct, every laser machine they have, are the ones that really do in fact work. The Dr. you know is a genius, and I would never change my dermatologist. Even if you don't do laser, he should be your #1 choice for dermatologist! My skin looks amazing! I wish I can show you !
THANK YOU LDI!!!!

Pros: best skin out of all my friends!

Cons: nothing whatsoever

I really hope people will read this review and consider not going for a "free consult". I went in for a consult and got very very poor service. I guess i just got desperate and felt that this was my last option. But now i regret purchasing the "discounted package".
When I came in I was greeted by a lady in the front. She took me into a room and asked me why I was there. Then she said a "medical assistant" would come in. In reality it was just a guy in a suit trying to sell me packages. He played on my emotions telling me I was pretty and it was sad that I had some acne & acne scarring. He sold me on a $6,500 3 laser package. THen he proceeds to talk bout my credit. The same day another lady comes in and calls herself a "PA". I dont think i once saw a doctor while I was there. She was rude and talked to me like I was dumb. Very unfriendly. She proceeded to do the laser treatment and when I complained that it hurt and it was uncomfortable she said "well it shouldn are you sure you're feeling correctly" Then she gives me a prescription to all this medication and gives me no explanation on any of it. The lady at the front throws all these sample in a bag and send me on my way.

I have serious buyers remorse. I'm not even done with the treatment I bought but I am seriously dreading going back. The "PA" was very cold and unfriendly. I dont even remember he name. Please save your money and shop around. Im sure there are other options. Or friendlier people.

If you dont believe me just go and see for yourself.

I feel ripped off and wish i never went. I'm honestly thinking of hiring a lawyer to see how i can get out of this. They made me sign and arbittration paper. I feel sick to my stomach thinking of all the money i wasted!

Okay, so I don't want to steer anyone in a certain direction. But I must say. I must not keep this a secret any longer. I have done LDI's lasers. 3 of them. All 3 for different conditions. Rosacea, Scars, and veins.
My favorite one, is the CO2 laser. This was my secret. I can't believe I am sharing this information. This laser is magic. It is a magic eraser. It gets rid of everything. I have no wrinkles. I have it all gone.
The only thing I have left is brown spots. My skin looked like an array of pigmented skin, full of scars, brown spots, acne, just whatever you can think of ... on top of that, on a red face. I honestly, decided to make the decsion NOW. No more tomorrow. And I am so happy that I did. It has changed my life eternally. It has done so much for me, you will never know. The truth and strength and power that a woman gets and feels, just from having a clear beautiful face. It has changed EVERYTHING.

No more do I have to wear makeup, foundation. EVERY DAY I had to do this!
It just exacerbated the problem even more, and more. A continous cycle. Just never changed.

ONLY WITH LASERS, and many different top quality kinds.
And the nice man, the doctor's assistant.. helped me so much... to make the decision today. He knew. just by looking at me, that I needed to change. He was my strength. I cried when I saw him the last time... He steered me right on the right path, and the Dr. He has changed my life forever.

That is why I am writing this. Or else, I would never ever publicize a review.

This is very personal and private to me.

Nobody should ever underestimate LDI. They obviously really know what they are doing.

THANK YOU LDI. I humbly say Thank you.

Cons: becoming a laser addict

You know what? I was in the same situation! I own a small business, we are THE BEST within a 100 mile radius, and were voted numero uno. However, then when we received a lot more customers and attention, boy let me tell you, our competition starting to attack us on our review system, which decreased our customer clientele, and we ended up sueing this company for blatant slander! We won a sum of $454 000! I hate when people do this to the real companies! My experience at LDI:
I am 100% a supporter. Not only did the doc clear all my spider veins, and deep pitted acne scars. It wasn't even that expensive! I too am a true patient, and can tell when I am reading the reviews, it is the same person writing over and over again! Shame on you!

I agree Riley, I have completed 5 treatments, in a period of 3 months. I am so glad they taught me how to have beautiful skin, and they are teaching me how to maintain it. That is just the way it goes. Hey, we are very lucky to have these kinds of medical procedures. You know they used to write about acne from the 1300's as painful sores that never went away. We are lucky we have a CHOICE. I painfully regret to say this, but CMLSS, are you a complete idiot? You didn't even try their services and you have such authority to tell people not to go to LDI? That will certainly lead people in the wrong direction! They will then lose all hope! LDI really knows obviously what they are doing! They have treated atleast 2 other people in my family, with a family package. We are all happy with the outcome. I am going in for another treatment in 3 weeks, and I will be all done! You will see another update from me then!

LDI is the real deal! I am a REAL PATIENT, I took it all the way with them, from the beginning I put all my last hopes into them. I am now so HAPPY that I DID! I swear, I have never been happier, I only look better and better every day. I don't even have to wear makeup anymore. I can't believe how much it made me realize even more how much the skin on the face is SO IMPORTANT! I have taken loads of pictures and am writing a blog. Yes, it is pricey, but when I shopped around, everyone else was charging more money from other different areas, and they try to upsell, here, they just give you a flat rate for a whole series of treatments, right up until the end you are COMPLETED! These competitors writing in the reviews systems, should be punished for slander and dishonorable conduct! It is happenening everywhere! I am a true and honest and reliable person. Believe me! I look 10 years younger and no more scars, or pores, or ANYTHING on my face. It is AMAZING> LDI is AMAZING.

Pros: best lasers, equipment is the best

Cons: NOTHING

I just came back from our free consultation, which was a complete joke, and I am so angry. My son has acne, and is feeling really bad about himself, so I decided to check out laser treatments. I knew it would be expensive, but I at least thought that a real doctor would come in and examine my son before they asked for $8000 to treat him. I asked the "salesmen" who exactly he was, and if he really knew anything about the treatments. He said that he was the doctors assistant, and that he had worked with him for 15 years, he should know something about it. He was rude, and made me feel like I was being sold a used car. Even if the treatments work, I can't imagine doing business with a doctor that would have someone like that represent him. Get a clue LDI if you want people to respect you and give you their business, treat them like you value their business and at the very least have a doctor see the patient. I cannot image that this is the most ethical way a doctor can run his practice. I wonder what the medical board would say about a salesperson determining treatment.

Pros: Not sure

Cons: Sales Job

Thanks city search for the reviews. I was going to make an appt to this place for a consultation but by reading the reviews I will take my time and money elsewhere. This place seems like a scam and ripoff just like the other place i actually did goto Celibre.

btw dont goto Celibre, that place is a scam too.

I recently went to the LDI Irvine facility and was sorely disappointed with the service! Many of the very poor reviews on here are absolutely correct! They do have someone in a suit (basically a car salesman - who has no clue about medicine or dermatology for that matter) come in first and try to find out what your problem is and tell you it's going to be very expensive - about $3500 per treatment, with multiple treatments being needed. The doctor may or may not come in depending on your concerns or questions. I'm sure they have lasers there and maybe they can fix dermatological problems, but they go about it the WRONG way. They have poor business and medical ethics and only want your money and make sure you are willing to pay up. I have absolutely no reason to write this poor review other than to warn others about this medical establishment. It is like going to a used car lot in downtown LA, the only difference is that these people are suppose to be medical professionals; it makes me sick - but I hope no one gets sick there, they would turn it into a sales pitch and charge you an arm and a leg. All I can say is, I hope you consumers out there can find other places of business to help you first before you decide to go here. And one more thing, I have a strong feeling that many of the positive reviews on here are made up by people who either work there or are friends or relatives of people who work there. There may be a few honest reviews that are good, but not many. Everyone I have talked to who has experience in going to LDI Irvine does not have many positive things to say about it, other than it's expensive and they only treat you good if you have the money to spend - or are willing to be suckered into it. If you don't believe the reviews, find out for yourself. Good luck.

I too have been here for treatments. Excellent treatments and customer service. I paid only $3,000 for my entire package so I don't know what people are talking about. Maybe they just had really really super bad skin. I am totally clear of my zits and I will be going back for some more laser treatments. I checked out their skin resurfacing lasers online and decided that the lasers they have are less painful and looks like it achieves much better results so I will going back for those to clear some scarring. I did 3 laser treatments and some topical ointments. I got clear literally in 2 weeks. Lucky for me I got it fast before I got too many scars. I found out that Asian skin scars really bad, but the good news is that Dr. Rispler told me that Asian people are less likely to get skin cancer. I feel great and my skin has never looked better. I chose LDI because no one else had all the advanced medicine and lasers. I needed real professional help from a dermatologist. Also, the price is right. The other consultations I went to did the same thing. Most places talked to me about pricing upfront to see if it was something I could afford because you have to fork the bill. My parents have great insurance and even they said that zits aren't covered by them...in their words "acne is not a deadly disease." Ummm...yeah, then why does it make you so sad and depressed. Don't get me started on that. I also went to other dermatology offices that don't tell you how much anything costs and tell you that it will be an ongoing process which means a ton of doctor visits. Who's got time for that? DO THE MATH. Well, I rather know how much this whole thing is gonna cost and that the Doctor visits are all included. Plus those simple type of dermatologists didn't have any lasers. Lasers are good and I got quick results. I have read online that other meds take up to a year to work. No thanks...I got school soon and I need to look good.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACE!!!!
The will make unreasonable promises that will NEVER EVER come true.
I am a real LDI customer who spent thousands of dollars on there treatments...here's my story.
I signed up for four laser treatments in 2008 at a whoping 8K which according to them is a deal...when I tried to cancel they said I had signed a contract and owed them $1500 for a lousy 30 second treatment that they have you do intially so that in case you do decide to back out they can charge you for it plus another $1500 administration fee. It got to the point where there Beverly Hills lawyer got involved and forced me to either go thru with the treatments or pay them 3K.
In protest, I went thru with all treatments which were extremely painful and cost me several days of work after every treatment because you look like s BURN VICTIM(seriously). It would take forever to heal and now after over a year my skin is back to what is was...with very little to no improvements(oily skin, breakouts, pimples, etc.)
Save your money and consult with your doctor who will recommend you to a a dermatologist..it will save you money and the results will be better because your given alternatives instead of LASERS that rip your skin off and do not heal anything except for minor scars.

If you have acne the four treatments WILL NOT help you...believe me and everyone on this site. This place will treat you like the cats meow when you first arrive...after they scam you of your money, your nothing but a pain in there BEHIND and they can't wait to kick you out the door.......BUT NOT before you spend more money on there medicines, lotions, creams, sun blocks and hair gels which may I remind you are NOT INCLUDED in the expensive contract......OF COURSE!!!

You are a FOOL if you subscribe to there theory that lasers will be the solution to all your problems...I call BS!!!!

LDI DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THERE CUSTOMERS AND WILL MAKE YOU SIGN WHAT IS CALLED "ARBIRATION FORM" BECAUSE THEY KNOW FULL WELL THAT MOST IF NOT EVERYONE OF THERE CLIENTEL WILL NOT BE SATISFIED WITH THERE OVERPRICED SERVICES AND LOUSY STAFF...THIS WAY THEY WIN BECAUSE YOU END UP IN A COURT WERE THEY SAY YOU SIGNED A CONTRACT WHICH, ACCORDING TO THEM, CLEARLY STATES THERE IS ONLY A 20-30% IMPROVEMENT IN SCARS....BUT THEY WILL NEVER MENTION THE FACT THAT YOUR SKIN WILL BE BACK TO IT'S OLD SELF AFTER A YEAR DURING THERE SALES PITCH BECAUSE IT IS NOT TO THERE BENEFIT.

LDI ARE A BUNCH OF MONEY HUNGRY SWITCH AND BATE CON'S!!!

SOME DAY DR RISPLER(or ripper as in rip you off) AND HIS STAFF WILL GET THERE'S...IF THERE IS A HELL, IM SURE THEY WILL ALL BE THERE.

Cons: EXPENSIVE AND DEFENITELY NOT WORTH IT

hi, my name is Demi, I had suffered from acne breakouts every month. I was left with acne scars, and pock marks. I never knew that if I picked my pimples that it would leave me with scars. I went to Dr. Rispler at this laser and dermatology institute, because my mother got her face lasered for her wrinkles. Her results were beautiful, so she took me to the same Doctor. He really took care of me like a daughter, and I am so grateful. After just 3 treatments, even one of the cutest boys in my class asked me to the prom, and all the girls were jealous! I never ever told them I was getting treatments, they never even knew it. The best part is that there was no downtime for me, and none of the treatments hurt. I am just so grateful for this dermatologist,and I will recommend him to everyone I know. THANK YOU!!!

I went to the Irvine location last Friday for a consulation. I have mild acne and some acne scarring I was looking to get treated. Traditional treatments take a long time and cause alot of unpleasant drying effects. I read alot about laser acne treatments online before going, so I had some idea of what treatment would be like, but I expected to actually meet with a doctor. Instead they have you meet with a fast-talking salesman.

He talked so fast that I don't even remember his name...he said is so fast.

He sat on the other side of the room from me, very far away from my face and instantly said that it usually takes at least 3 treatments...Ok...I asked him to tell me what those would be like, what kinds of lasers, down time, post care. He stopped me there started to discuss pricing. He said one treatment would be about $3k, 3 treatments $4500, and to look really "wow" as he put it, about $8-10k. Well, sorry, I'm not going to agree to treatment until I know all the details.

I understand sales (I'm a sales rep too!) but when it comes to a serious and expensive medical procedure, I personally would prefer consulation by the actual doctor doing the treatment.

I want to do laser treatments, but I am going to continue looking for a center with a little bit less of a sales pitch, and more attention to the actual medical aspects of laser treatment.

Ok, so I finished my back and neck acne, starting with some help from ziana. Besides being called the miracle stuff. I went for my back and neck laser treatment, and I have taken photos of my back and neck. This stuff really works. I had major problems "genetically" I had acne full on my face and my back and neck, now my neck and back are all done, and this is the follow up I written from 3 months ago. I am almost all completed. My face acne never came back, now I have just two more treatments to go, and I am so sure that I don't even need to go back. It worked so fast on me, it is the best thing that ever happened to me.

Cons: nothing

I have to agree with all the 5 star and positive reviews. LDI offers an amazing service. I too have been a victim of the dreadful acne and remnants of the scars caused by it. After 5 laser treatments, I am almost 100% clean and clear. Acne was a constant battle for me. I have no regrets coming to LDI and I do not agree that it is an expensive service. It is priced within reach and the benefits are worth a tremendous amount more. LDI has a great staff that is attentive and professional. Doctor Rispler truly pays attention to your treatment regimen and customizes to the tee based on what seems to be a plethora of experience. LDI is a paradigm of the true medical laser clinic. It is not a mom and pop shop that buys a laser and says it works. You would be putting yourself in great hands at LDI. I can stand by that statement 100% and would refer all my friends and family to the best treatments for acne and acne scars in the world.

Not to sound all positive and such, I too have a complaint in regards to the hours of operation of this office. They do not open on the weekend. It is kind of annoying because I work all week and the only time I really have is the weekends. It's like going to Chick Filet and they are closed on Sundays. I hope LDI you read this and decide to open on Saturdays at least. I am sure a lot of people would love to be able to come in on the weekends and you can definitely increase your traffic, not that you need it. Just a suggestion.

Nonetheless, I greatly appreciate that Doctor Rispler is always on top of the whole dermatology world. I would not want to trust my skin to anybody else. Thank you to the staff at LDI and a very warm thank you to Doctor Rispler.

Pros: Services Worked

Cons: Hours of Operation

I shopped around and found that LDI costs the same as any where else so don't buy the BS that other places offer the samething for cheaper prices. It's totally not the same service. The Doctor is always at this office and is very experienced. Dude sometimes the Doctor has to like control. You know. They are a genuine medical practice and has great services and the lasers were really quick and painless. I did laser treatments for acne and acne scars. It was totally easy and it worked. The staff is cool and really easy to get along with. Just beautiful peeps. I would say that only bad thing about this place is that I had to wait like 3 weeks at a time to get my next laser. i don't know whether its because my face had to recover. They said it was necessary but like I never had any burning or redness...I mean my friends didn't even know I was doing lasers. I also threw away all the stupid stuff that i bought before to fix my acne and acne scars. Dude total waste of money there. Don't need them anymore. The only other problem was yeah it was not that cheap. But like I said still cost the same at other places too. Oh and by the way you get what you pay for. This place had the best track record for years. Hope this really helps.

I love LDI. Experience and medical expertise just reeks from their pores.

I was a long time sufferer of acne and I have tried everything and even went to see a local dermatologist. The dermatologist I originally went to treated my acne with antibiotics and some creams that worked for about 6 months and then I started to break out again and again. In fact, when I was first on the treatment I broke out huge and the acne left more scars on my face. Then the derm tried to use some light therapy. It didn't work and ok great but what about the scars crazy derm. It was very heart wrenching.

LDI was very different by using lasers. What was really funny is that I was really trying to pay attention to what lasers they were doing on my skin and I thought they were going to use a Smoothbeam laser on me. Apparently no Smoothbeam for me. They have it though and I saw it. I was expecting it and they never did it. I read about other people getting that done and they said it worked great. I asked them why I was not getting that laser and they told me that the other lasers were better for my condition and that my skin will respond better to it. So, yes it is true that they customize your treatment. And yes, the lasers worked so well. After each treatment, my skin would improve more and more as the days go by. It was a strange, but rewarding experience. No one could tell that I was getting lasers done and my skin was never irritated. Sure it cost quite a bit, but I am not breaking out anymore and it has been a year since my last treatment. Actually my last treatment I did was for my acne scars and so its more like a year and two months since I have been clear of acne.

I would highly suggest any person that has suffered like me to go see LDI and Dr. Rispler. They are really ethical and their treament method is very thorough. They just don't leave you hangin with all the scars left behind from the acne. They just don't treat you like a number and try the typical treatment on you. The Doctor really knows how to treat acne and he does it in such an interesting way to not harm you or cause more damage to your skin. He just knows how to treat your skin. He and the nurses tell you what to expect and how my skin was going to improve. They were right every step of the way. They were so confident and cool. 5 stars all the way!

I went to the Beverly Hills office today for the free consult and after My terrible experience, I knew if I came and searched on-line I would find more because I CAN'T be the only one and low and behold, all over are the same experience I had -- I had to wait forever in a crowded room and then have the cheesy salesman come and just say the same thing I guess he tells everyone: 3500 a treatment or 8500 for the package of three.

How interesting that with so many different skin conditions, EVERYONE needs the same set of three for the same price. when I said it was more than I expected, I was shoved out the back door.

I REALLY wish I would have read these reviews before going because I would have saved gas, 7.50 in parking and My time.

Really creepy is the only way I can describe it. And ditto on the no eye contact from the doc. Add to that... no touching the salesman. When he came in I started to hold out My hand to shake... he ignored Me.

Please do your research. that waiting room was PACKED and there is no way they can do that many treatments in a day so they are playing a numbers game.

All the good reviews seem to say bad reviews are written by competitors - No, I am a real person and I went to the Beverly Hills office.

The waiting room I was in had 2 low square brown sweude chairs and the salesman sits on a hardback chair that is much higher than the low chairs so you are lower than him. Coincedence? :)

The salesman has dark hair and wears a suit and glasses.

The stuff they use to have you take your makeup off with is on a ledge by the door.

the painting on the wall is of three women at a bar who are all facing away from you and not looking at you. How completely appropriate :) Life imitating art.

Creepy.

Hello! Hi Every body!
I just wanted to say that I am significantly impressed b/c Laser Dermatology has changed me my outlook on life. I can't thank them enough. I not only have clear skin, but boys from my school are calling me Megan Fox! On our highschool newspaper they actually put my picture vs. Megan Fox picture side by side comparison, and I have to admit, I looked better because my skin looks way better. When I was walking down the hallways after class, people were saying the same thing to me!
I must say though that Dr. Rispler, and the staff, helped me so much. Even the Dr. assistant, the man in the suit, told me straighforward that I was really really beautiful. I never knew that before. I just wanted to personally thank him for teaching me about confidence. There is no sales pitch here. Just true honesty!

THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!

This is my first time ever even looking for reviews online! I came on here because I was going to read about Dr.Rispler, to see if he has written any books. But to my dismay, I can't believe people are complaining about price! That is truley unfair. My son had suffered bad burns from the Santa Ana fires, and he went to 4 different laser centers to get treated. NOBODY could do it. Even places where the Dr's weren't present, the nurses even turned us away. ONLY Dr. Rispler could treat him, fix him, and he is 100% back to normal, even way better before the burn. As a mother, almost losing my son in a deadly fire, and then having a Doctor's who could actually help and make a difference, is notable mention, and Dr. Rispler should be on the discovery channel.

Is it just me, or am I the only one with Extreme acne scars? Every time I looked in the mirror, I couldn't help but get goose bumps. Even Dr. Ripsler at the Laser Dermatology Institute, took one look at me at my free consultation, and asked me, "just one question.... why did you wait this long to do something about it?" I was so embarrassed but he asked me ever so gently, so I just dropped my jaw and tried uttering a few words but it just did not come out. I felt dumb. I don't know why I waited so long, I guess, I was feeling like it was unproven yet, that the technology hasn't been around long enough. I financed the deal, and I literally have no more acne scars! All my family and friends are astonished. They still cannot believe it. I hope if any of my friends or family go to Laser Dermatology Institute of california, and go see Dr. Rispler, I hope he can give me free laser treatments! LOL! *hint hint! Ahem! Too good to be true!? YES!!!!

But it is true! Even for extreme acne scars!

If you are reading these reviews, then you are like me. I wanted to make sure that this company was good before I went in for their free consultation. LET ME SAVE YOU THE TIME AND MONEY. At their consultation, I didn't like their pricing and thought that they were ripping me off. Let me tell you what is really a rip off; getting services that don't work. I was like you shopping around and I bought services from 2 different places: one place claimed to be a dermatologist and another was a MEDSPA. I wasted a ton of money on those places to find that there is a major difference between laser treatments and lasers. The real waste of time and money was committing to 6 months of time and 8 laser treatments from a company that pretends to have comparable laser. Oh yes, the other places were really nice people until your last treatments they can't wait to kick you out the door. I know the treatments were sub par now because my acne scars were not reduced or improved at all. Who cares about great customer service when you still have acne scars. I would rather have results.

I came back to these people to get it done from them and yes my acne scars improved with only 4 treatments. You will see for yourself when you go to the other places. Let me warn you that other places are using their name to sell you sub grade services and lasers at even a cheaper price and that is what you are getting; a cheaper laser treatment.

If you ask me, I can see for myself that a few negative reviews were written by those other places to fool you and me.

By the way, I was not the only one that went here to fix what the other places screwed up. During my visits, I have heard of several people coming from other places complaining about their services from even the places that I have visited. I am not an unusual case. Those other places are just scam.

Look, do you go to a DENTIST to FIX YOUR EYES? Then why would you go to anybody else besides a dermatologist to fix your skin? It just makes sense right? For me NOW it does. I didn't think before and I was screwed. So don't get screwed. And if you want laser treatments, you have to go to a place that specializes with lasers.

Honestly, the treatments are not that cheap. If you can't afford it right now, then don't go to the free consultation. Even if you want to finance the treatments, you have to know that it is really what you want and ready to make payments every month to pay off your treatments. My credit is good and so I did the financing and I am finally happy with my treatments.

So really do your research about these companies. You will see what I am talking about. Good Luck!

When I was 14, I had severe acne. Doctors kept telling me to stay away from pizza, and dairy and chocolate. They did 6 laser treatments, and I ended up with a wavy skin texture. I have never had a girlfriend till now.
I just wanted to spread the word that LDI really knows what they are doing! They really changed my skin texture to normal, even all my skin spots a discoloration from the previous treatments are COMPLETELY gone. I look young, my face looks smooth, I guess that was another added bonus to using the lasers.
The Dr. here is a magician. I swear by it. Anyone who needs confirmation, you can contact me personally. I am so willing to do that in return to show how much I appreciate their sincere honesty, professionalism, and experience.

I would never recommend this place to anyone. My experience was extremely HORRIBLE! In my life I have had plenty of doctors/ dermatologists visits in my life, this was BY FAR MY WORST EXPERIENCE. I wasn't even helped by a doctor, but a salesman named Judson Hamlin, who was incredibly rude. The first 2 minutes of my consultation he told me that it would cost $6500-$10,500 to make any type of difference on my face.

When I asked questions regarding the lasers, how they work, how they have worked for other patients, if they have before and after pictures etc, he was extremely impatient with me, and gave me one word answers. I tried to explain that I just wanted to understand what the process was and that I was not familiar with lasers, his pat response was "look it up online." That was the end of my consultation, he proceeded to leave the room and told the front desk that I had a brochure and with that he left without saying goodbye. He just walked away like I had been a major burden to him.

I cannot express to you how uncomfortable and upset I felt when I left. I wish I had read reviews and researched more about how this place is just a sales office, not a place where an actual doctor helps you. Even if their treatment worked, their customer service was so horrible, that there is no way I would ever go back there or recommend someone to go there. My visit was a major waste of time and a huge disappointment. BELIEVE ME, the good reviews are probably not authentic.

I called the help desk and left a message of how poor their customer service was. Once I hear back, I will let you all know how they respond to their bad review.

So far, it has been a short time, I started off really badly, and was really embarrassed. But as time progressed, I get excited to go back because I know the end result each time gets better and better. I keep looking forward to the final end date, because it has already cleared up my acne. Which was getting way out of control. Now, I feel for the first time that I have complete control, and can soon get rid of my acne scars.

Much love,
Shawn

Wait time - 2 minutes.
I literally signed in, and was excited to read the magazines lying around. Fat chance. I got called up immediatley. Was nervous, as it was my first time there. But office staff and nurses were Extraordinary. They ALL had smiles on their faces, their skin was clear as well. The mood was so calm and welcoming, it took all my nervous anxiety away.
Met the infamous Dr. Rispler. Whoa. he is the man.
He took one look at my skin, and just knew everything! My next appointment is in a month, and it's been two weeks since I first went there. The regiment I am to follow is very easy, and the products are phenomenol. Felt anxiety just thinking of not being able to get my hands on the products. A What if, scenerio comes into play.
I am glad to have made my decision to come here in the first place.
Realized most of all, skin, is not to be messed around with. Must go to the guru.

will update my review.

Trust me. I know what I am talking about.

Average laser costs are between 500-1500 a treatment especially for someone with mild acne and scarring like myself, however I was willing to pay a little more for LDI since they are sup. to be the "best" Well it was a joke! the dr. came in for 2.2 seconds couldn't even tell that I had acne on my face after I told him I did he quickly said oh okay I can three laser treatments for you for 3,500 a treatment but i'll give you a deal and do all 3 for 8,000. Honestly I walked out because I knew he was trying to rip me off, best is to go to a regular derm. and they will give you a real consult. and price!

I have been to other so called dermatology offices and let the truth be told that I never saw a dermatologist, not even a doctor in sight. I was catered to by aestheticians and all sorts of other types trying to sell me dermabrasion services and other beauty services like that. I didn't want that stuff...I wanted laser. I didn't feel like a person there. At the Laser & Dermatology Institute of California, I felt like a patient of a prestigious medical practice. They have a lot of patients, but it never felt crowded. I see bad reviews and I'm kinda glad that they never became a patient or that the Laser & Dermatology Institute have strict guidelines or criterias or whatever you want to call it to accept patients or decide to kick them out. Honestly, I think you would have to be an outrageous person to get kicked out of a medical office and then complain about it on review sites when you're not even a patient. It makes me feel comfortable that they are not just trying to grab your money because they could surely cheapen their price and take everybody in. I personally would not have liked that.

True story! I started off using an eyelash serum not mentioning any names, but the serum started changing the color of my iris, and then my skin! I didn't know what to do, so I opted for laser. no joke, I am so glad this happened, because I ended up getting the laser for my skin as well because I had such good experience with the laser getting my skin back to normal after using the eyelash serum. Now I look better than ever, and threw away the eyelash serum. Hard lesson learned, but turned out to be a success. Thank you to the Doctor!

Pros: Laser Works

I watched a show on channel 5 about a DOT laser. Looked like it did some amazing work. Couldn't find a good doctor with the DOT laser. I didn't want to go to that televised Doctor. He looked a bit young and it looked like a marketing gimmick. I researched and found out guess what? The "DOT system is an advanced CO2" and realized that was the same as the fractionated CO2 laser. What a joke? They were trying to make it sound like it was something special and different. And by the way, the DOT laser does cause down time to about 4-7 days. It's totally not what the Doctor was saying on television.

I did a search for fractionated laser on Friday night right after the show and found Dr. Rispler in my area. I came here on Monday to the Beverly Hills office for the "DOT" laser and got one treatment done for my crow's feet and some forehead wrinkles. As I suspected, it's the same thing as the fractionated CO2 laser. Now, I have had CO2 laser before and this one did not even come close to the typical pain from a CO2 laser. The results are already considerably better. I know this laser was far superior from the others I have tried. My down time was very short. I would say today is the day I feel that I could go out without any make-up. My skin looks great; smooth and tight. I wish I got the name of it, but I have never seen anything like it before. Do your own research. It pays in the end.

THESE ARE PROFESSIONAL PEOPLE. THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND SERIOUS. THE NURSES SPENT TIME TO EXPLAIN TO ME WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO AND WHAT LASERS WERE GOING TO DO EACH VISIT. THE DOCTOR IS VERY INTELLIGENT, KIND, AND VERY STRAIGHTFORWARD. THE DOCTOR IS VERY CONFIDENT AND THE TREATMENTS WENT VERY SMOOTHLY. THE NURSES AND DOCTOR NEVER MADE A MISTAKE AND MY RESULTS WERE GETTING BETTER EACH TIME. MY APPOINTMENTS ALWAYS STARTED ON TIME. THE OFFICE WAS VERY NICE AND LOOKED LIKE A HOSPITAL, NOT LIKE A SPA. THE NURSES REALLY TOOK THEIR TIME TO MAKE SURE THE TREATMENT WAS DONE THOUROUGHLY WITH PROFESSIONAL ATTITUDE. I REALLY ENJOYED MY VISITS AND MOST OF ALL I REALLY LOVE THE WAY MY FACE LOOKS AND FEELS. I TOLD THEM MY GOAL WAS TO HAVE ABSOLUTELY THE BEST SKIN POSSIBLE. IT TOOK ONLY SEVEN LASER TREATMENTS FOR MY FACE TO REACH MY GOAL AND EXPECTATIONS. I HOPE TO EVENTUALLY DO SOME LASER HAIR REMOVAL IN THE NEAR FUTURE. I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO DO SOME SPOT REMOVALS ON MY ARMS TOO. I TELL ALL MY FRIENDS IF THEY WANT ANYTHING DONE TO COME HERE. IT WAS ABSOLUTELY A REWARDING EXPERIENCE.

First off I am NOT going to tell you where I got my first laser acne treatments. That place was a SCAM that said that they were the most trusted laser center. Yeah Right! They kept offering to give me more free treatments. After 6 treatments my acne got worse full force and they just kept mad at me. What's the point in getting more free treatments when it doesn't work. Their problem is that they don't know how to treat acne. Therefore, I decided to get it done right the second time around.

I felt embarrassed coming back here for a consultation. I wasn't treated any worse coming back to laserhq. I signed up right away and after 4 treatments my acne cleared.

LESSON LEARNED. There is no laser treatment except the right laser treatment.

I cannot stand this place. I have gone here on 2 separate occasions for laser treatments. Neither has worked. I have spent over $8,000 now.

My latest experience.... I had to wait for 1 hour to be seen by the doctor. He walks in and immediately starts analyzing me. Tells me about 30 things wrong with me before even asking why I am here. Dr. Rispler is the most unprofessional and rude man I have ever met in my life.

I cannot stand this place! All the positive comments must be from the staff. Search for yourself - there are tons of 0/5 or 1/5 stars on review sites about LDI....its for a reason.

After searching on the internet for many grueling days...sob...sob. I couldn't make a decision on what to do or where to go, but I wanted to get lasers done on my face really bad...ahhhh my face was horrible. The reviews for this place was like so mixed up all over the place on so many different reveiw sites like this. I first heard their ad on the radio and then I saw their ad on the billboard and then I searched on the Internet and found their ads here too. Okay is this like way overkill or what? It must cost a lot to advertise all over the place. So I said yes, they must be making a lot of money. I asked myself okay who has been treating people the longest, is the Doctor actually there, and why are they making a lot of money. Then I saw some of the comments they wrote about some of these bad reviews and I read some weirdo remarks from like weird people and I couldn't believe what I was seeing...a bunch of haterz. Beware people others are trying to get you and force you to go see them by writing bad reviews. WOW! I don't know what to say. I just went to LDI to see for myself. I saw the guy there that everybody has been writing about and I don't know why, but my palms began to sweat. I guess because I believed all that c**p other people were saying. Let me tell you that he is exactly opposite then what people are saying. I think you have to be nice and respectful and people will act the same. I don't like people that think they are always right or have a chip on their shoulder. Especially one guy who wrote on here that he knows better because he is Doctor. Buhahaa. Just my take on that. But really no problems and he was very professional. I almost like s**t a brick when he told me how much it would cost to clear up my acne and acne scars. I knew that a girlfriend told me that it would cost a lot. So I decided to pony up and go for it. When I look back it was literally the best decision I have ever ever made. I invested in myself and I feel great and I think I look great. heeheehee *blush. My advice for all of you reading this review is don't believe what anybody says. My momma always said if you have nothing good to say about people...then don't say it all.

As a person with very light acne on bottom side of my lower jaw, I went to LDI as a last resort. My face had never acted like this, and I was desperate. I went for the free consult and drove home so disappointed! Some man in a flashy suit came in, never looked once at my face, flashed a 6,000 dollar treatment price, saw my face expression of shock, knew I didn't have that kind of money, said have a great day and walked out.. It was UNBELIEVABLY inpersonable, he never explained the process for my 6,000 treatment plan, or even acted on bit interested in helping me. He said when you save up the 6,000 come back and that was that. And let me just say, honestly my face is not even that bad.. I think he knew I was desperate and was trying to take advantage.. Hop this helps someone else. Try microdermabrasion first

Paid over $4,000 to get what they claimed to be permanent acne relief. I haven't had any results. The people that work there couldn't be more rude - they have a bad company culture of treating the customer horribly, trying to make them feel ugly, stupid, and like your wasting their time. If I could get my money back and never do this, I would. In fact, if I could join a class action, I would - - there's probably hundreds of people who have been scammed out of thousands of dollars too. Please don't give them any more money for nothing in return.

I can't believe I don't have to wear any foundation anymore.

I was saying in my review that got deleted. that I had a very visious cycle going on. The AHA, & BHA
s I was using from a good source was making me very sensitive, peel, itchy, red, then on top of sensitive skin and peeled skin, imagine more pimples, and then purple scarring after that.

It was a disaster. I've been going to LDI for 3 months now... i am so glad i took the leap of faith.
literally everything has reversed, and it seems like I have completley new skin!

I don't wear foundation anymore, just sunscreen and a special vitamin c lotion they gave me.
I set up more appointments to get rid of some stretch marks so I will posting reviews again soon.

I am a very honest and reliable person and very good repuation. my review is true and honest. I can't believe the #%#% people out there who think we want to know if they can't afford it or not, or they write about their intuition. I mean c'mon... who is dumb enough to do that! that is like writing about day dreaming.

I am writing about my RESULTS, whether good or bad.

but the fact is, it is something concrete. Not just something made from emotions...

I can't describe the feeling of relief I had when I left this office! My intuition was screaming at me during the whole consultation..."leave now"! Being a strong independent woman, I still found it hard to stand my ground to these "slimy car salesmen". They tell you what you want to hear (complementing my features and telling me that they'll have me looking perfect in no time), yet you still feel like you're an idiot for believing their words. The actual "Doctor" came into the room for all of 20 seconds and agreed with the car salesman as far as a plan of action. Look....I'm not a fool and I don't like to be taken advantage of. This whole experience left me feeling like I narrowly escaped being a part of this crazy Beverly Hills "it's all about the money" attitude...and I would have paid a small fortune for it. While I'm sure many gullible people have seen results, my integrity is more important! It was obvious to me that ALL they care about is making as much money as possible and pressuring everyone into spending more money than they can actually afford. But if you can afford it and don't mind sacrificing your integrity.....go for it. For all the rest of us, go buy a used car...it's cheaper and the salesmen are more honorable.

I can't describe the feeling of relief I had when I left this office! My intuition was screaming at me during the whole consultation..."leave now"! Being a strong independent woman, I still found it hard to stand my ground to these "slimy car salesmen". They tell you what you want to hear (complementing my features and telling me that they'll have me looking perfect in no time), yet you still feel like you're an idiot for believing their words. The actual "Doctor" came into the room for all of 20 seconds and agreed with the car salesman as far as a plan of action. Look....I'm not a fool and I don't like to be taken advantage of. This whole experience left me feeling like I narrowly escaped being a part of this crazy Beverly Hills "it's all about the money" attitude...and I would have paid a small fortune for it.

Pros: The parking attendant was nice

Cons: Don't get me started....

I can't believe the people who complain about the money it will take to fix and improve your skin conditions. I honestly went shopping around atleast 8 different places. I even refused my friend who is a dermatologist. I found that LDI is the same cost as other places, but they have so many laser equipment to double load you, so you really don't feel like it is a waste. They certainly used atleast 3 different lasers on me, and even my dermatologist friend was surprised that they had those machines. Apparently they are top of the line and very very expensive.

now I am glad that I trusted Laser HQ, and not others.

being from sandiego, well, orginally from Arizona. I have red freckles. Yep. The stubborn ones even all over your arms and chest and back, and legs.

Not so nice. But what I realized is that I really put all my faith and trust into the Doctor at this laser centre, and not in the practice itself. Even though the staff was so nice and even took my 2 year old boy and entertained him until I was done. I have had 2 treatments already and I feel like the first day I got contact lens when I could actually see what I looked like.

REMARKABLE.

I am really lucky because my girlfriend took me here and put her foot down. She said she would pay for all of it if it didn't work. I am lucky because I did it, and I have been waiting for another breakout. It's been 15 weeks, and nothing happened. Everything is gone. It is really unbelievable. Thought it be worth mentioning. merry x-mas everyone!

They don't open on weekends, and i find it inconvenient to go...
but one thing is for sure. I have great results, and I have tried more than 3 different docs.

They need to open on weekends.
life would be so much better.

I am really surprised at the bad reviews. I don't think because of someone's personal feelings, you should not trust a medical practice. I am surprised because I have been a patient at LDI, and I can't ever thank them for all they have done for me. I didn't know where else to turn to, so I finally was convinced that laser would be the option. They have been so patient, kind, professional, and just all round very warm environment. I couldn't disagree more with the bad review. You try and go for your self is all I have to say.

To LDI thank you so much for changing my life.

Sincerely yours,

Cheryl Hopkins-Guez

I went to their free consultation for acne. They were nice enough at first. But I sat down with the consultant, and he didn't listen to a thing I said. He took a very quick peek at my skin, then recommended a treatment that's obviously their go-to for anything. And by the way it costs $10,500! But if you do it now, we can do only $8700! I tried to explain that was out of my budget-I'd been treated in the past for $1,200-and he actually said "Fine! Go back to them!" and threw my paperwork onto a chair. He basically had a grown up hissy fit! Their tactics feel like telemarketers: get as many people as possible to talk to you, and eventually you'll find one sap who will bite.
