About the Hollywood Spectra Laser
A Hollywood Laser Peel can help refresh and revitalize tired, damaged skin. The driving force behind the success of the treatment is its advanced laser device. Hollywood Spectra by Lutronic is a dual-mode ND:YAG laser system with two wavelengths for treatment versatility; 1064 nanometers and 532 nanometers. ND:YAG stands for neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet; a crystal used in advanced laser systems. This laser allows your provider to safely target troublesome areas of skin with accuracy and minimal discomfort.
Side-Effect-Free, Zero Downtime
Some lasers are designed to cause controlled damage to the top layer of the skin, which can lead to unwanted side effects, including purpura (purplish-red spots) crusting, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and scarring. (1) But Spectra is different! The Hollywood Laser Peel is a no-downtime procedure that helps patients achieve clearer, more radiant skin without causing unnecessary damage. This gentle treatment uses just the right amount of laser energy to remove the top layer of skin and heat the dermis, stimulating collagen production for rapid healing. As such, it’s a great way to achieve a more youthful complexion without the hassle of a lengthy recovery.
A Hollywood Laser Peel can treat the following skin conditions:
- Benign Pigmented Lesions
- Uneven Texture
- Uneven Tone
- Enlarged Pores
- Fine Lines
Practically Perfect Pigmentation
Problems with skin pigmentation can affect us at any age, and can cause self-consciousness. A Hollywood Laser Peel is a particularly effective way to deal with skin pigmentation concerns. In fact, the ND:YAG laser is specifically designed to do so. Studies show that with just three ND:YAG laser treatments, patients show marked improvement in the appearance of age spots. (2)
Benefits of a Hollywood Laser Peel
One of the main benefits of a Hollywood Laser Peel is that it’s gentle and safe enough to repeat treatment again and again! Other benefits include:
- Reduction or elimination of common pigmentation issues
- Fast, comfortable in-office procedure
- Customizable settings for patient-specific treatment
- Smoother, softer skin without harsh chemicals
- Requires no topical numbing or anesthesia
- Zero downtime treatment, minimal side-effects
A Hollywood Laser Peel is a safe treatment for most skin types.
Candidates for Hollywood Laser Peel
If you’re experiencing tired, hyperpigmented skin, or if you want to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and blemishes, a Hollywood Laser Peel could help! Most people are good candidates for treatment, though people with oilier skin may benefit most from its pore-tightening ability.
The Hollywood Laser Peel is most beneficial for people with mildly damaged skin. Those seeking treatment for more serious skin conditions such as severe acne scars, should choose a different skin procedure to meet their needs, such as a chemical peel, SilkPeel, or microneedling.
Your Personal Consultation
We’ll explain the benefits of a Hollywood Laser Peel to you at your individual consultation with one of our skin experts. With locations across Southern California, there’s a Skin Perfect office close to you that can help you rejuvenate your skin!
After we’ve conducted a thorough examination of your face, and taken a few details of your medical history, we’ll determine if a Hollywood Laser Peel is a good fit for your needs. If it is, we’ll schedule your treatment date.
Hollywood Laser Peel Procedure
Step 1: Spectra Lotion
Once you’re seated comfortably in the treatment room, we’ll give you some comfortable eye protection to shield them for the duration of the procedure. We will ensure your face is clean and dry before applying a unique lotion to your skin. Spectra Lotion is a patented, jet-black carbon cream that looks a little like a mud mask when applied. Carbon lotion helps to prepare your skin for laser treatment. Your skin expert will wait for it to dry completely before moving on to step 2.
Step 2: Skin Heating
Once the carbon mask is dry, you will experience the heating laser energy of stage 2. As your skin expert passes the laser handpiece over the target area, it gently heats the skin, affecting the melanin (pigment) within. Pigmentation in cells is disrupted, signaling the body to begin breaking it down. The heat also triggers the production of new collagen deep in the dermis. Collagen is a vital part of the skin’s structural makeup. This less destructive laser technique tightens the skin by stimulating the wound healing process. (2)
Step 3: Nanosecond Laser Pulses
The last step of the Hollywood Laser Peel completes the combination resurfacing process. The laser settings are configured to snap rapidly across the surface of the skin. If you’re concerned about pain, don’t be! The Spectra laser delivers comfortable laser energy that many patients describe as a mild, warm, tingling feeling. These nanosecond laser pulses exfoliate the skin and help to resurface it. Your provider will ensure they conduct several passes for optimal results. This softens skin texture, and evens out skin tone, leaving you with a refreshed, radiant complexion.
At your personal consultation, we’ll tell you how many sessions you’ll need to treat your areas of concern successfully. Some patients will require multiple treatments for the best results, but for others, rejuvenating results can be achieved after just one session!
Spectra Laser Toning – Patients can take advantage of in-office skin resurfacing in a different way with Spectra Laser Toning. This treatment is explicitly designed to help patients with melasma; a chronic skin pigmentation disorder that causes large, brownish blotches on the skin. Like the Hollywood Laser Peel, Spectra Laser Toning is non-ablative, meaning it doesn’t cause damage to the top layer of the skin. With 6-8 sessions spaced 7-10 days apart, patients will see a noticeable reduction in pigmentation in the target area.
As well as melasma, Spectra Laser Toning can also help to reduce pore size, treat uneven skin texture, and diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Mixto CO2 – Mixto CO2 is a fractional laser that smooths and tightens skin. Fractional lasers split light energy into thousands of micro-treatment zones. It’s suitable for a number of common skin problems, including acne scars, keloids, and certain types of severe wrinkling. The Mixto CO2 system provides patients with collagen-stimulating heat, improving the appearance of signs of aging and helping skin look and feel more radiant.
Photofacial IPL – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) facials are an effective way to smooth wrinkles, reduce pore size, improve skin texture, and reduce redness. It’s also a good option for patients with dark spots and telangiectasia tiny, red veins that lie close to the surface of the ski. The IPL Photofacial is a versatile broad-spectrum light treatment that penetrates skin safely using photo regeneration. After two weeks, problem skin sheds, leaving behind smoother, glowing skin.
