The Spectra laser has a multitude of uses from tattoo removal to reducing the appearance of irregularities in the skin. Fortunately, it also helps to reduce the appearance of acne and any acne-related scarring.
How Does It Work?
The procedure performed utilizing the Spectra laser is called a peel. During a peel, a client will undergo several passes of the Spectra laser, which omits quick pulses of intense light. These pulses of light target the melanin in the skin, breaking them up for the body’s natural processes to flush out. During the process, the laser heats up the skin, causing it to contract and stimulate the production of collagen.
The entire process, from start to finish, generally takes less than an hour and requires no downtime—allowing clients to return to their daily activities immediately.
Who Can Benefit from A Spectra Laser Peel?
These procedures are good for people with acne scars, as it can help reduce the visual appearance of the blemish. It can be utilized on people with all skin types, making it one of the most versatile procedures on the market for treating acne and acne-related scarring.
Spectra laser peels are also great for treating liver spots, birthmarks, rosacea, and variations in skin tone. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles can also be reduced through the process.
Most clients refer to the sensation as a warm, tingling feeling in their skin. However, the procedure is completely bearable and requires no topical anesthesia.
There are very little side effects to a Spectra Laser Peel. Clients may experience a slight redness to the treated area, but this lasts for only a short period of time—a few hours at most.
In rare cases, clients have experienced itching or swelling, minor bruising, and infection. Often, these side effects can be prevented by following the provided aftercare instructions.
The process is extremely gentle, so it can take several treatment sessions to see preferred results. As the treatment requires no downtime, scheduling sessions easily fits into a client’s regular routines.
