 photo rejuvenation reviews


Really wanted to try this method, my friend described. But, unfortunately, I have a few moles on my face that is considered to be a contraindication for photorejuvenation.


Removing in this way the vascular mesh on the face and sprockets. After the procedure the skin is red, felt a unpleasant burning sensation, but soon all has passed. Happy with the result, the vessels become less noticeable after the first session. In a month I'll try again. But for getting rid of wrinkles, I do not advise, my wrinkles have not gone away.


I'm not happy with photorejuvenation. The effect is zero, the procedure is expensive, face more than a week with the effect of inflammation. Definitely not advised!


I did photorejuvenation proven on personal experience clinic Quantum machine and was amazed at the effect. Freckles went away completely, and brown spots are much lighter. The procedure is not so painful, just stings a little. The swelling and bruising I was not at all, so I am very glad that have used this service.


I have had terrible swelling, bruising around the face, all for a very long time to recover, and the wrinkle did not disappear. For rejuvenation I this procedure is not recommended.
