How do the advanced kinds of treatment used in our GK Clinicwork?
The modern, new impulse light and laser technologies used nowadays affect every blood vessel by a special amount of energy that has a minimal affect on the skin surrounding the target. During this kind of treatment, laser or light energy is directed straight to the chosen capillary or blood vessel by special equipment. This energy (heat) is absorbed by the blood vessel and then its walls stick together irreversibly. Combined variable laser and IPL techniques affect blood vessels of different diameters at different depths of the skin. Therefore, this treatment can be used for very difficult cases which could not be corrected before.
