WHAT CAN A SPECTRA PEEL DO FOR ME?
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.
