Photorejuvenation

Your Beauty Is Our Profession.

Rejuvenate Yourself…

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a light-based treatment that breaks up pigmentation such as freckles, acne scars, melasma, liver spots, moles, broken capillaries and other such areas of hyperpigmentation on the face or body.

 

The bright beam energy that comes from the IPL machine break up dark pigmentation and cauterizes red vessels, as a result the discoloured area gently reduces in colour, essentially erasing stubborn and unwanted red and brown spots.
