Our Laser Peel and Acne Procedure is a two-step procedure that reduces skin inflammation, facial dryness, uneven skin-tone and enlarged pores, treats acne and the chance for acne based scarring. In addition this laser peel treatment is also done as a maintenance protocol to prevent the acne from returning. We recommend the spectrapeel laser peel and acne procedure in conjunction with professional facial treatments, chemical peels, botox and filler treatments and laser facial resurfacing.
Skin conditions like uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, pre-mature aging and acne can affect just about everyone. In some severe cases these conditions may even lead to permanent damage and skin scarring.
Common treatment options for these conditions may include topical or oral medication, facial chemical peels and some laser therapies. Of these, the SpectraPeel treatment is one of the most gentle and effective treatments available. Specifically this laser procedure treats the current ongoing skin condition and prevents future reoccurrence of the conditions and acne as well. After a few short treatments patients typically experience less symptoms, reduced oil production in the skin and significantly improved skin texture and acne. Additionally, SpectraPeel also results in reduced pore sizes and redness and improved skin tone and color.
How can SpectraPeel work?
The technology in the SpectraPeel is like no other!… Specialty carbon based spectra lotion is applied onto the skin and allowed to penetrate into the pores. Then the laser is applied in two passes including long pulse mode that reached deep into the skin to stimulate skin cell regeneration and reduce redness and inflammation, then a secondary pass is applied using q-switch (short high-energy superficial pulse) mode to completely remove the carbon, peeling away the old skin layer while unplugging pores and stimulating new healthy skin growth.
How many treatments are required?
Condition related symptoms, acne lesions and oil secretion begin to reduce (up to 30%) after the first treatment. After three to five treatments at 2-3 week intervals more dramatic results can be expected including significant reduction in acne spots, redness and inflammation returning the skin to a much healthier state.
How long will the results last?
While laser treatments are considered to be long lasting, they are not permanent. To maintain the results, follow-up treatments at regular intervals (every 3-6 months) are recommended. In addition a skincare regime using Dermalogica brand skincare products is a great way to reduce the frequency and need for follow-up treatments.
