Photo Facial

Photo facial, using I ntense Pulsed L ight (IPL) technology, is a skin brightening and tightening laser facial in which a special bandwidth of light focuses on melanin, collagen, and haemoglobin. The light generates a special type of heat that helps to decrease melanin; thereby, lightening pigmentation. It also shrinks the hair follicle, reducing hair growth. IPL also stimulates collagen resulting in tightening and rejuvenating ageing skin. Another benefit achieved by this light is in shrinking dilated capillaries in the skin thereby reducing redness and improving conditions such as Rosacea.
