Frequently Asked Questions

Does A Spectra Hollywood Laser Peel Hurt?

The majority of patients report no pain, they only experience a slight warming of their skin and a light prickling feeling. Typically, no anesthesia or topical is needed.

How does Spectra work?

Spectra emits laser pulses to heat the thin layers of collagen and skin tissue, which delivers quick bursts of energy to treat tattoos, pigmentation, sun spots, and melasma. Or, slower bursts can shrink pores, tone skin, and fight acne. The wavelength and heat levels can be further altered to address vascular lesions such as broken blood vessels or even rosacea.

A peel can also be performed with the Spectra laser. The Spectra with Carbon Peel is used to treat a multitude of problems. During this simple procedure, a carbon-based lotion is applied to the face. The Spectra laser is then used to peel off the lotion, beginning a process of skin cell stimulation and exfoliation. The Spectra Peel can offer amazing results of reduced pore size, smoother skin texture, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, and reduced oil production.

Generally, a Carbon treatment typically takes only about 30 minutes to administer, and most people find the procedure very comfortable. A series of treatments are recommended to enhance results. The treatment can only be administered by our laser-certified technicians.

How long will results last?

The results depend on the type of treatment provided. For example, when used for acne treatment, your skin condition typically improves after the first session, with subsequent treatments offering additional enhancements. Although the Spectra laser is highly effective and long-lasting, patients may need additional treatments to achieve specific goals or for on-going maintenance of aging or sun damage. Your physician at Dermatology Consultants will help determine how many treatments you will need to achieve optimal results.

Spectra for Tattoo Removal

By creating a very short high energy pulse, the tattoo ink is thermo-acoustically broken up into minute particles that the body can readily absorb. Laser tattoo removal is usually performed in intervals spaced over 4 weeks apart.

It evens skin tone, reducing appearance of pigment, fine lines and acne scars, your skin will fill and look younger.
