SPECTRA Laser Peel is a relatively novel non-ablative, safe, no downtime
to minimal downtime, yet effective skin rejuvenation laser treatment.
Spectra Peel reduces fine lines (wrinkles), dyschromias (reds & browns), improves acne, scars, texture and shrinks large skin pores.
Spectra peel also removes facial hair at or below the surface
(akin to dermaplaning), and lightens dark fine (vellous) hairs.
Spectra Peel is the gold standard laser treatment for shrinking large pores and improving related skin texture irregularities.
Spectra Peel is also equally effective in addressing stubborn acne.

What is the procedure for Spectra Peel?
The Spectra Peel is a 2-step carbon-assisted rejuvenation process.
Eyeshields are placed over your eyes before the laser treatment for protection.
First, a thin layer of carbon-based Spectra lotion is applied to the face
for 10-15 minutes or more to facilitate penetration into pores;
followed by a full face laser pass in Spectra mode [i.e. Quasi-long pulse mode]
that reaches deep into the skin (into the dermis);
photobiostimulating skin cell regeneration and reducing inflammation.
Subsequent passes in the Q-switched mode remove the fine carbon particles
via photomechanical destruction; peeling the old surface layer skin away,
sterilizing the skin while unplugging pores and stimulating new skin growth.
Photomechanical destruction (explosion) of fine carbon particles within pores
stimulates remodeling of the inside of pores, resulting in pore size reduction.
Dramatic reduction in pore size and improvement in skin texture is possible.
Dermal skin cells associated with skin rejuvenation are also stimulated
resulting in controlled collagen regeneration and remodeling
associated with improved skin tone, texture and acne, scar and wrinkle reduction without significant downtime or side effects.
Additional passes may be needed for lightening / removal of unwanted face hair.
A brief heat sensation can be felt each time the laser delivers a beam of light.
However, most patients find the procedure comfortable.
You may be able to see visible improvements after the first treatment.
However, a series of 3-5 or more treatments is usually recommended,
depending upon the conditions being treated.
Also, to maintain your results, again depending upon the condition being treated,
follow-up treatments at periodic, regular intervals may be recommended.
Advantages of the Spectra Laser Peel include:
- Avoids prolonged downtime and post-inflammatory pigmentation side effects possible with ablative laser procedures and strong acid peels
in certain predisposed skin types
- Can be used in combination with other treatments
- Continued maintenance treatments are effective for anti-aging programs
- Treats many conditions safely and effectively
- Collagen stimulation / rejuvenation
- Dual mode peel is highly effective with excellent results
