Laser rejuvenation treatment stimulates the body’s collagen and elastin production, recharging the skin, boosting its anti-aging abilities and helping to enhance its natural repair process. When considering laser rejuvenation treatment, it’s important to complement the treatment regime with a healthy diet to maximise the effectiveness of the rejuvenation.
