No matter how well we take care of our skin, sometimes fine lines will appear on our faces. They’re a part of nature, but not all of us like this part of nature. To combat the appearance of fine lines, at Center for Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology we recommend that our clients get a Spectra Peel. The Spectra Peel procedure is a safe way to reduce fine lines, and it also helps minimize the look of scars and reduce the size of pores.
A Spectra Laser Peel can also be used to combat acne. Acne can follow you far beyond your teenage years, and our Spectra Peels can help you with your battle against acne. We use two different lasers, Spectra and Q-switch. The Spectra laser encourages skin regeneration, while the Q-switch laser reveals a new, healthy layer of skin as it unclogs pores.
The treatment is a 3-step process. Before the treatment, we apply a carbon lotion on your face and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The lotion gets absorbed into the skin, and then we begin the first step of the laser process. During the first stage, the Spectra laser is used to gently heat the skin and stimulate the collagen. Collagen production is pivotal for anti-aging and better skin tone. The second stage uses the Q-switch laser, which removes the carbon lotion from the skin. As the carbon lotion is being removed, all of those dead skin cells are also removed, and unsightly pores are shrinking at the same time. For the third step, we switch back to the Spectra laser to remove any leftover dead skin cells, oil, and carbon lotion. Though this sounds like a long process, a Spectra Peel session typically takes only 30-35 minutes. So, you can come in on your lunch break and leave looking rejuvenated.
Immediately after the first treatment, you can see the results. Your skin will look refreshed and rejuvenated, and you can go right out and show off your new and improved look. Results from the Spectra procedure can last for a few months, but for optimal results, we recommend 5-6 sessions and then yearly maintenance. Our Spectra Laser Peel procedure is performed in the safety and comfort of our offices in Fort Worth.
