Topic: MECHANISM AND ACTIONS OF LED, IPL AND LASERS

Strongly supported by credible research, light-based technologies have become imperative for any salon, or clinic that is offering advanced skin rejuvenation, anti-ageing, slimming and hair removal services. As the modalities of choice these technologies have proven efficacy in delivering reliable, consistent results for skin and body treatments.
