Technology and technique often go hand-in-hand for skin care and beauty treatments. One of the best embodiments of this is Spectra Peel Laser toning. The Spectra Peel Laser treatment is the latest in the skin care toolbox and is able to promote smooth and evenly-toned skin, reduce scars, diminish the appearance of large pores and eliminate minor wrinkles. It does this through fractional laser technology. Those last three words probably don’t mean much to you right now, but read on and find out what you’re missing. Your skin will thank you!
What Is a Fractional Laser?
To understand a factional laser, it’s important to look at what came before it: ablative and non-ablative lasers. An ablative laser largely works by heating vapor to an extremely high degree. It works on the surface of the skin quite well, but has a lengthy recovery time as it partially damages the tissue surrounding the targeted area. Non-ablative treatments reach into the sub-dermal layers to stimulate deep tissue. These treatments have minimal recovery time but take a large amount of repeat visits to get full effect. What these two treatments have in common is that they are both a single beam.
A fractional laser like the one used for a Spectra Peel treatment is divided into thousands of tiny columns that enter the deep layers of the skin. The highly-focused nature of the columns allows them to both affect the surface and to stimulate collagen on the deeper levels. The precision employed also prevents the surrounding tissue from being affected.
What Is the Spectra Peel Laser Used For?
Since it combines ablative and non-ablative benefits, the Spectra Peel Laser toning treatment can address a number of different skin conditions. Acne scars and the red splotches of rosacea are particularly easy to eliminate with the Spectra Peel treatment, but it can also relieve facial lines and wrinkles, sun damage, regular scars, and stretch marks.
Although the full results of a Spectra Peel Laser treatment require more than one session to fully realize, it takes far fewer visits than a traditional non-ablative laser. The exact number of visits will be determined by your skin type and what conditions you want relieved, but in general it will take four-to-six sessions to get maximum results.
Is It Safe?
The Spectra Peel Laser treatment is safe and enjoyable. It produces a warming sensation that many report as pleasant, and sometimes a tingling or tightening sensation for up to thirty minutes afterwards.
Although Spectra Peel Laser treatments do involve some degree of aftercare, there is no downtime to speak of. Once the treatment session finishes you can easily get back into your daily activities.
