Hi my name is Anne. I have been going to laser centers to treat my skin Condition for about 10 years now. About 18 months ago I found dr.rispler recommended to me by my friend. I was refreshingly surprised that it was an actual medical practice instead of one room store that has one laser machine. Ldi actually has many for different treatments. Which is perfect for me, because I used to have to go to several different places in series of steps to help me with my skin treatments. I cannot believe how good the dr. Is here. He already has saved me a lot of money because its a one stop deal. My skin really is 90% better for the first time. It makes a huge difference to go to a medical practice that has FDA approved machine. I hope this is it, thank you dr. Rispler keep up the good work,!

Hi! My name is Deanna, and I wanted to write a review because I need to tell everyone that if you are desperate there is a way to help your acne. I hit my lowest just 6 months ago, I was really rock bottom. I was so depressed because of my acne so I missed school so much I actually got expelled. I spoke with my guidance councellor and she was kind enough to let me know that her son had this same issue. She really understood! She said that dr. Rispler at Laser Dermatology Insititute of california, in just 3 months, got rid of her son's acne and even all his scars. I want everyone to know that you must do laser in order for your scars to go away, there is nothng else that works. I even tried microdermabrasion, glycolic acid peels, nothing worked! Just made it worse and more red. It was really like my whole face was a sore. Yeah it was a sore for eyes! I just finished my fourth treatment, and I am so happy to say I HAVE NO MORE ACNE! all my scars are gone! Just all of them is all gone! My face is not even red! It's like I am 10 years old again! woo hoo! can you believe it! I also bought my guidance councellor a gift for leading me to the right place. I didn't even know they had all the FDA approved lasers. Anyway, I thought i'd share my story, and lead everyone to the right place. Don't suffer anymore! Thank you LDI!
Love always, Deanna

Don't usually write reviews, but there is defnitley a notable mention in the dermatology world. I have been going to 3 different dermatology clincs in my local area. I don't understand why, but there was no improvement for the past three years! I almost given up hope. I spent loads of money, and I still couldn't look at myself in the mirror. I was truley going to give up. I want people to know that it's not about that, it's about finding the right and most experienced dermatologist. It makes a world of a difference. I have first hand experience. I found Dr. Rispler my man, at the LDI clinic, who has been doing this for more than 30 years. I actually went there starting from November 2011, after listening to their radio commercial, I thought, why not, it is a free consultation! immediatley,
what the Doc was telling me was so different from the other dermatologists! He was telling me, don't use this shampoo and that hairspray, just basic everyday simple changes to begin with, and none of the other Docs told me that, I guess cause they wanted me to keep coming back! Anyway to keep a long story short, every day simple changes, a load of laser and proper treatment from the right doc, will fix your face. I have no, and I mean no more acne scars, even my wrinkles went away at the sides of my eyes. It's really amazing. The lasers he has are top notch, huge machines, and the other docs didn't even have anything close to it, just little tiny machines you can find at the spas! I will upload pics soon! Thank you for hearing me out!

My brother is 6 years older than me. Of course bc of genes I naturally followed in his footsteps. When he saw a Dermatologist back then he was prescribed accutane. Until this day he suffers from severe depression and stomach problems.our family became very aware of this. When I got older and starting to suffer severely from acne, it was like facing doomsday. Of course I'd rathe sufferer through acne than depression and stomach problems. The was no way I was taking accutane. I heard about ldi in radio commercials for the free consultations. I wanted to see if there was anything that could be done. When I met dr. Rispler, I asked him right out if I should take accutane. He looked at me like I was crazy. He said no way, and strongly advised against it because of here side effects. Right then i knew I came to the right place. I signed on for 5 treatments and something called ziana. It is topical. But let me tel you, his method really works, even after the first week I noticed visible improvement. Really when I look in the mirror today, I can't believe that between me and my brother it's such a vital fact to go see the right dr. And the right combination of treatments that dont have side effects. What a world of a difference! I still feel bad for my brother that he still has to suffer in silence like this, so I want to tell the world about my story so you ar aware of potential harmful side effects. Aid have finished my fifth treatment two days ago, and I have this new face! It's like I was just born! Thank you dr. Rispler for doing the right thing, and thinking of the potential harmful side effects, I will let everyone know my story!!!!

I came in for some cosmetic treatments and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The doctor took the time to sit with me and answer my questions which really helped me understand the procedure I wanted done and made me feel very comfortable. The results were just great.

about a year and a half ago I went to the Irvine location and the experience was seriously unbeleivable. You wouldn't believe the sales guy they throw at you... this guy was a f-ing joke. He was very rude and aggresive and will not listen to what you have to say or if you have any questions. He will completely cut you off and throw the money in your face... he quoted me 8k from the get go and said that no where in the world will they be able to fix your face.... and if I had to think about it to just come back... ( literally just kicking me out within like 3 minutes) did not answer any questions. just said that these were top notch lasers and they are worth like a million dollars each and the price was very very reasonable... a complete idiot.... I highly highly...... HIGHLY recommend you do not go for your "Free Consultation" because if youre not ready to buy that day... The ex used car salesman will try his hardest to make you feel like shyt....

My last option. Laser. Too expensive.
The conclusion: Don't wait any longer.
Especially for me, I realized not to waste my time and just do it. I am glad I didn't wait any longer.
I did the laser, it is amazing. It is not expensive afterall.
I love my new face. I look amazing.

I am West Indian, so usually we have really nice skin. However, I am one of the few that have too much sweat glands, therefore I am always sweating from my face, and also, my pores are enlarged because of it. In the recent years, I found that due to hormonal activity, the pores would get trapped by sebum, and therefore, I would get severe acne patches. LaserHQ, I heard on the radio, and they said no matter what skin condition, and to come in for a free consulation. So of course I tried them out. Well, its been 4 and a half months, and its impossible that was me just a couple of months ago. I have no more excessive sweating. My pores are not even there anymore. I didn't ever dream it was this simple. Anywayz this is really the place to go for, for your skin conditions. I wholeheartedly believe in them. Thank you LaserHQ.

Pros: Great for west indian skin

Cons: i wish the cost was 1000.00 cheaper

First Class, Laser Dermatologist Facility. I've been to Laser Center's around the world, and none of them could get to the root source, as Dr. Rispler was quick to identify. He knew immediatley I have a rare skin condition. My brown spots keep growing on my face and they never stopped. It looks like I have a mask on my face. However, the previous laser facilities I've been too, seem to be quick fixes and painful. The major difference between LDI I noticed, was the treatment procedure, the way in which it was conducted, and the aggressive treatment approach Dr. Rispler was not afraid to use. He does have state of the art lasers, I was surprised because I searched for this particular laser, and tracked it down here next to my actual city. I have been flying all over the world to get treatments, and if I just looked here, I would've found it earlier. I have completed all of my treatments except for one. And my face has never looked so clean. It is a milky white, no brown spots, no masks. Dr. Rispler said I won't need another laser treatment for 10 years after this. I am ecstatic, and want everyone to know the kind of service I have received. Excellent service, excellent dermatologist, great value.

After my divorce settlement, I was bed ridden for quite a few months. I decided to go on jenny Craig, and get a face lift. I discovered lasers are pretty painless, and less cost than an actual face lift. So I tried LDI, because they were all over the freeway on my way to work. I just can't believe what a new person I looked like. I look atleast 15 years younger. It took 3 treatments, and I met my ex last week, and he was shocked. I told him that it was because we divorced that I felt rejuvanated. I think that did it.

Pros: Gets back at your exes!

Cons: pricey, but worth every penny

I have actually been to 3 of their locations on different occasions for different treatments. I first discovered this dermatologist for laser tattoo removal about 6 years ago in irvine. I have shopped around for the best value and went here first. They were a bit pricey and so I went to a couple of other places.

My major concern was that I did not want any scars and for being asian we scar easily. Also I read online that skin tone is a major concern. Since I have a darker skin tone I was worried whether I was going to get the right treatment. When I went to LDI the first thing I realized was that they were very confident. They told me what it would cost for the treatment before I got to see the doctor. I wasn't comfortable with that and so I left. After I visited the other places I realized why LDI was so confident. They do have many many lasers compared to the other places that were charging just a little less than LDI. These guys don't kid around and try to kiss your butt. One of the other places was so nice and catering that made me rethink what I was doing there. Of course they are super nice because they are desperate to sell you something. When I checked up on that company recently I was right they do not do the right job based on patient reviews and complaints. When you read the complaints against LDI it was all the same; people were mad because they were kicked out of the office. I also read about pricing being the biggest issue. Sounds fishy to me. I think LDI is doing a great job helping only those who are serious about getting quality treatment. I had only 4 laser treatments for my tattoo without any scars at all and it is completely gone. The other places were telling me it would take 10 treatments. You do the math. 4 treatments vs. 10 treaments. Don't get fooled into thinking it costs less plus all that time to do 10 treatments. No thanks. LDI had a specific laser for tattoo removal just for my skin tone.

I was completely satisfied with my results that I went back to LDI for acne scar treatment. Okay, this laser hurts when you are not expecting it so now be warned and expect it. The nurse that did this laser on me warned me, but i didn't believe her. Honestly, it was only around the upper lip area that hurt . I did only one treatment of the fractional CO2 at the Covina office near my work. The results were great with only one treatment and I felt like I didn't need anymore.

Then 2 years ago I got married to a beautiful woman who had perfect skin when I met her, but after a year she started breaking out. I decided to take her to my dermatologist Dr. Rispler at LDI. Wow the doctor was so compassionate and instructed her to change certain behavorial things such as shampoo and so forth. She listened to every instruction without deviating and her acne was gone completely after 3 laser treatments in 2 1/2 months. I saw it improve immediately. She does get a pimple here and there when her hormones are out of whack. Now all she has do is see the Doc once a year and use a mild face cleanser that she gets from LDI. By the way his stuff is the best and saves you a lot if money. So take it from a real patient that understands what everybody is going through and the tough decisions you have to make when picking a doctor. The truth is Dr. Rispler is the best and has been my personal dermatologist for many years.

Pros: Professional Dermatologist Office. Many Treatment Options.

Cons: None

My mom forced me to Dr. Rispler's office, and I was terrified. I thought for sure, it would not help at all. I tried all the infomercial products, when all the teens looks so beautiful within a week after trying the product. Well, nothing was good for me. In fact, in just kept getting worse.
I was really mortified for a while, feeling really really hopeless. I just want to say, that not only did Dr. Rispler help identify my bad habits, that exacerbate my acne, but he even lasered off my acne scars. It took 30 days, and that is no time, compared to the products I bought that never worked.
I think this will be one of the most memorable things, my mom has ever done for me. And mom if you are reading this, it would be great to have a set of wheels too! LOL but I won't push it.

So mom, thank you, I love you! And thank you Dr. Rispler, and all of LDI staff!

Pros: Got rid of all my acne scars 100%

Cons: I have freckles

front desk - normal
led me to a small room w cushy chairs and mirrors
the guy in the suit told me it would be 8500 to fix my skin
me: yikes!!
suit: maybe you should decide how important it is to you to have people not judge you for your skin.
me: i just didn't expect it to be this much
suit: these are serious lasers, top of the line medical technology
me: i think i cold get it cheaper back in brazil
suit: i prefer the us
this guy was a smooth talking, manipulative mercenary...i can't believe i actually thought about gettign sucked into one of those 5 yr agreements...i was deseperate to have clear skin, but the egregious sales pitch and hte pressure to start treatment immediately helped me to accept my zits and walk out the door.

Pros: the promise of clear skin

Cons: the impending breakout over the price

This is my first review I've written ever! I was so disappointed with LDI (Beverly Hill??s location) that I had to write this to let others know what to expect.

When I got to LDI, my supposedly FREE consultation, the girls at the front were pleasant. However, once I was called in, a girl came in to ask if I was wearing make-up, I told her I did but very lightly because I had to run an errand after wards, but it was obvious that I had acne, and I knew the dermatologist wouldn??t have a problem looking at my skin since I didn??t cake it that day. Anyhow, a min. later she walked out and this A-hole in a suit walked in, didn??t say hello and didn??t even sit and said ??we can??t look at you r skin if you don??t take off your make-up. This is for people who want to commit today. If you are interested, for acne, typically you need about 3-4 sessions, which can cost about $3-4K, hmm, could run you to $6-8K, possibly even 12K. So, when you??re ready, come back and see us.? I was so shocked and appalled by the way he treated me. I felt as if he thought I couldn??t afford the treatments. I was there to simply see what it is they do, not to discuss pricing. He also said I wasn??t going to see a dermatologist as this was only a consultation, and if I were to see the dermatologist I would have to pay. My first reaction was to go off, and I did. The negative reviews on LDI are true! I read them, and thought I would give it a shot, but they were right. These positive feedbacks you read are probably from their employees and family members.

LDI, if you are reading this?you suck!!!! I don??t know how you stay in business? Hope your business goes under?

This is my first review I've written ever! I was so disappointed with LDI (Beverly Hill??s location) that I had to write this to let others know what to expect.

When I got to LDI, my supposedly FREE consultation, the girls at the front were pleasant. However, once I was called in, a girl came in to ask if I was wearing make-up, I told her I did but very lightly because I had to run an errand after wards, but it was obvious that I had acne, and I knew the dermatologist wouldn??t have a problem looking at my skin since I didn??t cake it that day. Anyhow, a min. later she walked out and this A-hole in a suit walked in, didn??t say hello and didn??t even sit and said ??we can??t look at you r skin if you don??t take off your make-up. This is for people who want to commit today. If you are interested, for acne, typically you need about 3-4 sessions, which can cost about $3-4K, hmm, could run you to $6-8K, possibly even 12K. So, when you??re ready, come back and see us.? I was so shocked and appalled by the way he treated me. I felt as if he thought I couldn??t afford the treatments. I was there to simply see what it is they do, not to discuss pricing. He also said I wasn??t going to see a dermatologist as this was only a consultation, and if I were to see the dermatologist I would have to pay. My first reaction was to go off, and I did. The negative reviews on LDI are true! I read them, and thought I would give it a shot, but they were right. These positive feedbacks you read are probably from their employees and family members.

Pros: ????

Cons: Service

.

this is by far the best dermatologist I have been too.
I have been to the Beverly hills location, but I heard that it is the same doctor travelling between two locations.
I just wanted to say, that they really do have FDA approved lasers and I am really grateful for everything they have done for me. My skin looks brand new, and I can't believe it.
I highly recommend them

I can't believe it myself. But 6 months after my treatments, my skin is looking better and better. I thought it was great at first, but today when my husband woke up, he was staring at me, and said I looked so beautiful! It was the first time in years, that he said that to me, so I ran to the mirror, and I was astonished how much I look younger. I definitley highly recommend LDI, and they really know what they are doing.

Da Bomb! Nurses rocked, Doctor Risp rocked, all his staff was da bomb! Growing up with severe cystic acne was the worst thing that ever happened to me. I even went to church for prayer, but the prayer request guy took one look at me, and told me he wasn't going to pray for me! Why? He said it was a punishment! In your face! I went to LaserHQ, and my face is so smooth, people have been giving me compliments all over the place! I believe in miracles now, but you have to be proactive about it! LaserHQ ROCKS!

Hi everyone! My name is K.Knight. I have been reading the reviews for Dr. Rispler, and I cannot even imagine the patients who rate him without trying any of his treatments! I noticed that people who write the good reviews are actually real patients who underwent treatment at his facility. I was disturbed when people complained about price. This is a major medical procedure. Of course it is not going to cost the same as a facial at a spa! I never thought it would when I first went in, so I actually thought it was very very fair. I signed up with my mom, I guess we have the same genes. We agree 100% with the positive reviews. Who can deny Dr. Rispler's talent? No wonder why he is well known! My mom looks so young, it's ridiculous. She gloats about it to all her 5 sisters! I had severe scars, and the Dr. even got rid of my freckles. He even got rid of my brow burns (long story, someone lit my face on fire)! Not funny at all. Anyhoo, I am really disturbed at the bad reviews, I mean... don't you actually have to be a real patient to write a review! Shame on those people hot tempered because they couldn't afford it! Don't expect it to be spa prices. To me, it was very very affordable!

THANK YOU LDI!

Pros: strengthens love and love and more love

Okay, so first my auntie is the one who bought me a package for my congratulatory college gift. I must admit, I was very embarrassed at first, and shocked. Long story short, a guy just doesn't walk in a laser dermatologist, unless he is forced to go. I guess. I went a series of 6 times. Each time getting better than the next. My scars are completley gone, it's amazing. The pock marks are completely gone. The funny thing is, in the card written from my aunt, it obtrusivley said "Greg, time to get your first girlfriend." Well, now I HAVE MY FIRST LOVE!!!!!! So it isn't so obtrusive anymore! LOL! My dad said #$%# we shoulda taken you sooner! I seriously wish so! I am completely free of acne and acne scars! Come to think of it, it is pretty sick... to have all those spots on your FACE.
I LOVE YOU AUNTIE! I WILL REPAY YOU BACK as soon as i finish college. I PROMISE!
Dr. Rispler is the bomb! I can't thank him enough.
He truley knows what he is doing. He used atleast 5 different lasers on me, NO PAIN, and ALL GAIN!

I SWEAR BY LDI! As prudent as I am, I had to go to the laser center that had only fda approved lasers. After watching many youtube videos, and before and afters, the fda lasers are the only real ones that work. I chose Dr. Rispler LDI, and I CANNOT BELIEVE HOW MUCH MY SKIN LOOKS SOOOOO REFRESHED! Like I dropped 15 years! I look like I am 22! I can't believe it. Every time I see myself in the mirror, I smile now! Before, I used to look away, and pretend like every day it was okay. But I was depressed for years! I AM SOOOO EXCITED! IT's like a have a new life again. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT! you have to try ldI, You WILL NOT REGRET IT!

Cons: nothing!

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!!!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

AT 42, MY FRIENDS FINALLY CLUED IN AND ASKED ME WHERE I GET MY NEVER AGING, WRINKLE FREE LOOKS FROM. THEY KNEW SOMETHING WAS UP BECAUSE I LOOK LIKE THIS FOR 5 YEARS, AND I ALWAYS TOLD THEM I WAS JUST USING GENESIS! LOL! I WAS TOO SELFISH TO TELL THEM THE TRUTH. BUT THIS YEAR IS SUPPOSED TO BE MY LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE THANKS TO SUZE ORMAN, SO I AM COMING CLEAN. I USED THE CO FRACTIONATED LASER AND IT REALLY WORKS! I ONLY HAVE TO GO FEW TIMES, AND I HAVE NO SAGGING, NO EYE WRINKLES, NO MOUTH WRINKLES, AND I CAN'T CREDIT GENETICS ANYMORE. IT IS FROM THE SKILLED DR. AT LASERHQ. I WILL NEVER GO ANYWHERE ELSE.

Pros: JAW DROPPING KILLER LOOKS

Cons: KEEPING IT A SECRET IS HARD!

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!

Pros: no more acne scars

Cons: none at all

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!

Pros: Right Treatments. Really Worked

Cons: None

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.

Cons: AWFUL BEDSIDE MANNER, AND UNPROFESSIONAL

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!
