WHAT IS A SPECTRA LASER PEEL?

Spectra laser peel (sometimes referred to as the ‘Hollywood laser peel’ in the US) is a superficial laser peel treatment with no down time. Unlike deeper laser resurfacing treatments, you are able to apply makeup straight after treatment and carry on with your normal routine. Spectra laser peel can reduce all the seven signs of skin ageing: dark spots, sagging skin, dull skin, lines and wrinkles, skin dryness, uneven skin tone and open pores. It’s also effective in treating mild to moderate acne and acne scars.

Spectra Laser Peel treatment is currently only available at our Cardiff Charles Street clinic with Dr Harryono Judodihardjo.

MORE ABOUT SPECTRA LASER PEELS

During your consultation, your practitioner will discuss your needs and assess your suitability for treatment so that your treatment can achieve your desired results.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The results of Spectra Laser Peels is clearer, smoother, younger-looking skin. 

The treatment works by harnessing the laser’s energy to remove the very top layer of skin and stimulate the skin’s natural healing response, kick-starting the production of collagen and elastin.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING TREATMENT?

Your skin will be cleaned thoroughly and then a layer of a special carbon liquid will be applied and left on for about 10 minutes so that it soaks through the upper layer of skin and enters the pores.

After this, the practitioner will go through a three-step process using the laser on a different setting for each step

First the laser will be used on a low-energy setting. This heats up the carbon particles in the skin and pores to activate the skin’s natural healing process.

The second step involves using the laser on a mode known the ‘Q-switched’ mode, with a low energy setting. This will remove the upper layer of the skin.

The third step involves the laser being used at the Q-switched mode again, but with a slightly higher energy setting. This will target areas of pigmentation by shocking the melanocytes cells so that they stop producing melanin (pigment).

SPECTRA LASER PEELS FAQs

How many treatments will I need?

This depends on the results you want to see. Some people choose to have this treatment every month to maintain their results. We recommend between 5-10 treatments spaced at between two and four weeks apart.

Is this treatment right for me?

The best way to find out if this treatment is suitable for you is to book a consultation. Our experts will be able to assess your skin and determine whether Spectra is the best option, or if something else might be more effective. Spectra is suitable for most skin types and can even be used to treat acne, so it’s a very versatile treatment.

What happens after treatment?

Immediately after the treatment, your skin may be slightly red and warm. But, unlike chemical skin peels, there will be no flaking/peeling of the skin (because it is vaporised by the laser during treatment.) You may be more sensitive to the sun, so we recommend applying a good SPF product with at least factor 30 protection.

Does the treatment hurt?

Almost all patients rate this treatment at less than 3 out of 10 on the pain scale.
