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.
As we age subtle changes occur to our skin, including increased pigmentation, uneven texture (sometimes caused by acne scarring) and wrinkles, a Spectra Peel can help to address all of these concerns.*
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.
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.
There are many benefits to having a Spectra Peel treatment.
