breast enhancement
I would like to enquire on the credibiity of IPL Laser Breast Enhancement Treatments. I''ve only seen 3 sites that actually show treatments in this, including their success rates. I''m cautious on why this treatment doesn''t seem more common as it''s describe as quite a simple process, like laser treating spider veins, etc. Also why the more credible clinics don''t offer this treatment whatsoever.
Many thanks.

Hallo Wilma
I must admit that I am sceptical that it will make a big difference - it is supposed to increase esterogen in the breast, but breast tissue produces minimal esterogen. I don't think there are clinical trial results that confirm any significant results. It may tighten collagen or improve bloodflow through the breasts so may have a slight lifting effect.
