Photo-rejuvenation is a universal solution to the three main problems: pigmentation, appearance of enlarged vessels, relaxation, wrinkles.
The procedure is performed with an IPL (Intensed Pulsed Light) device, emitting light in a different spectrum using special filters. Into the skin, the rays interact with it and provoke beneficial bioactive processes.
Photo-rejuvenation clears thin cappilaries, some hyperpigmentations and stimulates collagen formation. The effect is visible facial refreshment, wrinkle removal and skin coloring.
