Spectra Peel is a no-downtime procedure that helps rejuvenate the appearance of aging, damaged skin. This gentle procedure is safe on most skin types and is a great way to get a quick skin refresher without the longer downtime associated with other laser procedures. It evens skin tone, reducing appearance of pigment, fine lines and acne scars, your skin will fill and look younger. The treatment can be performed alone, but works best when you have several treatments over a period of time.
EXPECT DRAMATIC RESULTS
Spectra Peel is the application of specialized laser energy to reduce visible skin pigmentation, improve skin tone and more. Spectra Peel not only improves uneven pigment, but can also reduce the appearance of textural irregularities and fine lines.
The laser energy works in two ways, first it gently targets the melanin (pigmentation) in the cells breaking it up for your body’s natural removal processes, and second it heats deep in the dermis causing the skin to contract and stimulate collagen. Because the treatment is gentle, multiple passes are needed in order to obtain optimal results.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Your physician may apply a light layer of Spectra lotion to your skin, this lotion has a carbon base, so your skin will look as if you are wearing a mud mask. Your physician will begin treatment, by applying the laser energy to your skin. You will hear slight snapping sounds when the laser is fired and may feel a slight tingling or warmth. Your physician will make multiple passes over your skin with the laser during each treatment.
How it Works
Laser energy lightly removes Spectra Lotion, heating dermis and lightly ablating the top layer of dead skin. The laser energy breaks up pigment, that is then carried away by your body, and heats the skin causing the skin to contract while at the same time stimulating the building of collagen.
SPECTRA & MELASMA
Not only is the Spectra a great treatment for overall skin health, but it is alsothe first aesthetic device on the market to be FDA approved for the treatment of Melasma. The laser energy gently penetrates tissue heating it up and targeting melanin (pigment) within cells. The damaged melanin is then removed via your bodies natural healing process. You will probably notice that the pigment darkens slightly while your body works to remove the pigment. The Spectra treatment is very gentle and, as a result, multiple passes can be used to effectively and safely treat even pigment lying deep within the skin.
