"This is more of a THANK YOU than a simple review.Having suffered with cystic acne beginning in my teens and after years of treatmeants there has never before been such a thoughtful and knowledgeable Doctor that I’ve truly intrusted and valued.Dr Van Dyke’s skills, expertise and great sense of humor was a welcomed relief and very much appreciated. Finally, feeling like I had landed in the right hands at the right time.To the staff at the front desk, I extend my gratititude to you as well. It was and has been nothing but a pleasure. The results of my treatments surpassed my expectations and would highly recommend Dr Van Dyke to anyone who is suffering from skin conditions beyond their control or wanting a refresh/enhancement. THANK YOU again, for the care and patience you extended to me regarding such a sensitive topic, my appearance. And for that you are deserving of a 10 Star rating !"- A.S. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2023
"I don’t really ever go to the dermatologist (knock on wood) but I had to recently and gave this office a chance and the experience was soooooo wonderful. The front desk assistant was amazingly nice. The process was fast, nobody wasted my time. I saw PA Charlotte and she gave me a few options for what to do with the issue I had and I appreciate that!!! She took my concerns seriously. Last dermatologist I saw was in Encino and she was critical and had a bad bedside manners. This place felt cozy, cute and inviting."- C.K. / Yelp / Feb 02, 2023
"I was referred to Dr Yun when her office was near Woodland Hills several years ago. I travel from Ojai to Studio City to maintain my relationship with Dr Yun now as I find her to be the kindest, most talented dermatologist I’ve been lucky enough to find. I’m 63, I’ve had a few! She is patient and kind from skin cancer to micro needling, never upselling, yet keeping me informed always of new products. The staff is very efficient and courteous and runs the office impeccably. I can’t imagine being in anyone else’s hands for my dermatology needs. Do not hesitate to see Dr Yun. Seriously!"- L.M. / Google / Jan 18, 2023

"I recently received IPL treatment (three sessions) from Dr. Van Dyke and was delighted with the results! My dark spots have visibly lightened and my skin tone is definitely brighter and more even. I will absolutely come back for any future dermatological needs. Dr. Van Dyke is both personable and knowledgeable - and his front office is courteous and efficient. Thank you, Dr. Van Dyke, for an excellent client experience!"- M.F. / Yelp / Oct 30, 2022
Is Laser Hair Removal painful?
By targeting the area under the skin’s surface, your skin is left completely intact and untouched with virtually no visible symptoms. The laser treatment is also paired with an effective air-cooling tool on the surface so that, at most, your skin feels a little warm and tingly. Unlike other laser treatments or waxing, you won’t experience any superficial burns, pain, or ingrown hairs, and there’s no need for numbing or a topical anesthetic.
How does Laser Hair Removal work?
The Harmony XL Pro emits precise pulses of light (incredibly narrow, specific wavelengths of energy) that are absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle. The process gradually heats the melanin and hair follicles to destroy the hair for long-lasting results.
On which areas of the body can you get Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal by Harmony Pro XL is safe and effective for both men and women and is commonly used on arms, back, legs, face, chest, armpits, and bikini area. It’s ideal for sensitive skin areas like the face, so you can eliminate unwanted hair on your upper lip, nostrils, and between your eyebrows—forever!
How many sessions will I need?
Usually, you will need 4-8 laser hair treatments (spaced 3-4 weeks apart) to achieve your optimal results. Certain factors like genetics can affect how many treatments you’ll need.
What can I expect on my treatment day?
At your laser hair removal appointment, one of team will clean your skin and smooth out the skin to provide a direct path between the hair follicle root and our state-of-the-art Alma Harmony XL PRO laser. The laser's energy will target and safely destroy the follicle, stopping it from growing back. While this procedure is relatively gentle in nature, the treated areas of your skin may feel like it has a mild sunburn where lasers are used. After your treatment, you are free to go back to your daily activities, but you need to avoid strenuous activity or lengthy exposure to the sun for at least 24 hours to let your skin recover. When you get home after your treatment, we recommend anti-inflammatory creams or cold packs to treat any discomfort.
Who is a good candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
With Harmony Pro XL by Alma lasers, laser hair removal is safe for all skin tones, coarse or fine hair, any time of the year.
