What's the real cause of tyndall effect?

HI there it has taken about 5-6 months for the skin to return to normal after the dissolving enzyme. i used a collagen cream combined with castor oil on my eyes and that helped. also took collagen capsules. i was afraid my skin was... READ COMMENT

Hi there. i am not sure if you have tried to dissolve all of the stuff with hyalase? if not try it. another option is q-switched nd yag laser, which targets black and blue pigment under the skin and is often used to remove tattoos. this... READ COMMENT
