Esthetic salon HILO Photo Facial

IPL Photo Facial

Esthetic salon HILO

Our most effective facial treatment is "photo facial".

Photo is the most effective treatment for several symptoms including spots and freckles caused by ultraviolet, wrinkle, sag, closing the pores, shiny skin, and smaller face. Our photo treatment uses flashing light (IPL:Intense Pulsed Light) that is gentle for your skin.

IPL is not a laser. The IPL does not give damages on your skin and is a method improving skin by itself from the inside of the skin. After IPL treatment, you can makeup immediately as usual. We want you know more of IPL as beauty method.

A secret of the popularity of our Photo Facial

We asked to our customers. The reason why you chose photo facial of HILO?

1. I was going to a clinic, but too expensive every time. But Salon HILO's Photo Facial is reasonable and there is not so difference in effect.
2. Salon HILO is not a clinic but they are giving quite good beauty treatment. And there is NOT an unnecessary recommendation.
3. There is a free cleansing service.
4. There is a course includes facial hand massage before IPL treatment.
5. Some cosmetics are the same as beauty clinic.

Principle of the Photo Facial

Photo Facial treatment

Send only light of a specific wavelength instantaneously.

1Send only light of a specific wavelength instantaneously
2Absorb light energy against mainly melanine in skin surface (the cause for spot) and blood vessels.
3Melanine absorbing energy is treated as foreign matters within the skin inner and begins to discharge into the skin surface. When the temperature of blood vessels rises, fiber cells with collagen formation process will be activated.
4Promote creation of collagen and shorten the skin’s turnover.
5Discharge waste materials such as spots into the skin’s surface.

What are the differences in Photo Facial between our Salon and another Salon?

Wave length

The wave length of the light that is easy to be absorbed in melanin and blood vessel is clarified by medically and scientifically. Our machine is controling this wavelenght strictly and flashing relatively high energy of the light. We can see many Salon menu as a photo facial, but

  • Their machine is not controling needed wavelenght strictly.
  • The power of the flashing light is relatively low.
    arrow Therefore some salon's treatment is not so effective! And you can NOT feel the improvement of the skin at all...

For the customer who could NOT feel the improvement of the skin at all in another Salon, please come to our Salon HILO!

And for the people who go to clinic and is feeling too expensive, please come to our Salon HILO! The effective of the Photo Facial treatment you can feel is as same as clinic and our Salon HILO almost.
