Photo rejuvenation treatment is really popular right now, as it is able to use laser treatment technology get rid of everything from fine lines and age spots to enlarged pores, sun damage and other signs of ageing. It makes the skin look fresher, smoother and more youthful, without the patient having to go under the knife.

How does it work?

The treatment uses an Advanced Intense Pulsed Light system on the skin to break up pigment, collapse broken capillaries and boost collagen in the skin. All of this can make the skin look clearer, as well as improving skin tones and reducing wrinkles.

The way the treatment boosts collagen in the skin can gently lift facial laxity lines, as well as plumping up any wrinkle or crease lines around the eyes, forehead and mouth. It takes around 8-10 weeks for the increase in collagen production to take effect, but the results can last for up to a year.
