It effectively treats a wide range of skin conditions such as: age spots, sun damage, cutaneous lesions (warts and scars), broken capillaries, rosacea, acne vulgaris and many more. IPL is a wonderful treatment that stimulates collagen production and removes superficial skin imperfections, resulting in a healthy youthful complexion.
