Also known as “The Hollywood Peel”. A breakthrough in restoring damaged skin using the Spectra XT laser system. This treatment leaves your skin invigorated with reduced pore size, promotes uniform skin colouration and aids acne and oily skin.
After cleansing the skin, a carbon lotion is applied to the face and allowed to dry. The carbon lotion is then gently heated using the laser allowing the lotion to penetrate into the pores. A second laser setting is then used to vaporize the carbon taking away the superficial outer layer of dead skin cells simultaneously clean and shrink pores. Due to the thermal effect, the growth of connective tissue increases while the carbon particles exfoliate the skin and purge skin pores. The treatment takes 30 minutes and is very comfortable with no downtime. It will leave your face glowing with great results and you can resume normal activities immediately.

What can a Spectra Peel do for me?
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. 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.
How does Spectra Peel work?
Laser energy lightly removes the Spectra Carbon 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.
What do I expect during a treatment?
A light layer of Spectra lotion to your skin, this lotion has a carbon base, so your skin will look as if you are wearing a mud mask. Then he will begin your 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. We will make multiple passes over your skin with the laser during each treatment.
