1What is the Spectra Peel?
Spectra Peel is a no-downtime procedure that helps rejuvenate the appearance of aging, damaged skin. This laser targets both the epithelial (surface layer) of your skin and the dermal layer to correct damage and stimulate collagen production. 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, acne and acne scars, your skin will feel and look younger.
2How does the Spectra Peel Work?
Laser energy lightly removes Spectra Lotion, heating the dermis and lightly ablating the top layer of dead skin. The laser energy breaks up pigment and 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.
3What should I expect during a Spectra treatment?
During the treatment a light layer of Spectra lotion is applied to your skin; this lotion has a carbon base, so your skin will look as if you are wearing a mud mask. Your provider 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. Multiple passes over the skin will be made with the laser during your treatment.
4How many treatments will I need?
Treating aging skin is an ongoing struggle. When trying to correct damage it is recommended that a series of 5 or more treatments are performed approximately once every 2 weeks. Once correction is achieved, maintenance treatments are recommended once every 3 months. With no downtime, you can stop by for a Spectra Peel before a special event and ensure you look your best.
