How does it work?

How does it work?

The laser beam specifically targets unwanted colours in the skin (red or brown) and breaks them up. Red vessels are reabsorbed by the body and brown pigmented areas scab and flake off after a few days. For skin rejuvenation the laser stimulates the upper dermis to produce more collagen
