Gentle pulses of targeted energy isolate the treatment area and leave the surrounding skin free from potentially harmful side effects.

Treatment of Vascular Lesions & Moderate Inflammatory Acne Vulgaris
The target chromophore for vascular lesions is hemoglobin. The light absorbed by hemoglobin is converted to heat thereby effectively cauterizing the endothelial walls of capillaries.
Treatment of Pigmented Lesions

Brow and Lash tinting creates a polished & put-together look. It is a perfect way to look made up with minimum effort. Your eyebrows and eyelashes will look defined with out a slick of makeup. If you’re after a more dramatic look you can choose a contrasting shade or you can always top up your look with mascara.
Blondes, red heads and those with a fair complexion particularly benefit from the added definition. Even dark hair gets lightened by the sun, with the ends and lower ashes often barely noticeable. Tinting is great if you lead an active lifestyle, whether that’s playing sport or just wanting to look good in any sort of weather.
