Who is suitable for IPL Photofacial

Any skin type. For the treatment of fine lines, sun damage, uneven skin tone and more. Consultation needed prior to full treatments.

How does IPL Photofacial works

During treatment, DPC pulses are emitted onto the target area. Depending on the condition that is being treated, your skin expert can choose the best energy level - from very high to low pulses. The pulses penetrate the dermal layer of the skin and heat up the tissue. The heat causes the collagen fibres to contract, which yields immediate skin tightening results. It also stimulates the body to create new collagen, which helps the skin to restore its elasticity and firmness and delivers long-term results.
