This is a gentle intense pulse light also known as a photo-facial treatment to stimulate collagen production and elastin and will therefore improve the firmness and overall texture of the skin long term.
Collagen and elastin fibres provide support and structure to the skin. With age our collagen starts to diminish, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Photo- rejuvenation activates the fibroblasts to produce more collagen and elastin, leaving you with a firmer, fresher, smoother, and younger looking skin.
As the course of treatments progress the collagen cells are continually activated, and the collagen comes to the surface and helps to reduce lines and wrinkles.
A typical course of treatment is between 4-8 but each client is unique and will be discussed with a thorough consultation. Top up treatments may be necessary 1-2 times a year.
A patch test and consultation is done 1-2 weeks prior to your first appointment.
