Spectra™ Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Our skin changes as we age. Sun spots, wrinkles, and sagging may gradually occur on our skin. When that happens, we start trying in so many ways in hopes to go back to that youthful, fresh skin we once had – especially for me, a bride-to-be! I have about 7-8 months time but fret not, laser skin rejuvenation using the Spectra™ Laser by Lutronic will be able to achieve that much yearned brilliant skin in this short period of time.
What is Spectra™ Laser Skin Rejuvenation and How Does It Work?
Laser skin rejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that uses light energy to gently stimulate natural collagen growth, improve pores, remove irregular pigmentation and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Laser stimulates collagen production in our skin, and as new collagen is generated, lines and wrinkles are decreased. Additionally, as the laser light penetrates age spots and other pigmentation, these areas are broken apart and absorbed into the skin.
Patients and studies have also confirmed that laser skin rejuvenation results in a refreshed appearance, smoother skin texture, an even skin tone, and a decrease in pore size. Those with acne scarring will also notice a marked improvement. The laser can be used to rejuvenate many areas on the body, including the face, hands, neck and chest.
Do note that for a decrease in pore size, it may take more sessions than the rest.
What Is The Spectra™ Laser Skin Rejuvenation Procedure Like?
Laser skin rejuvenation does not affect the outer layers of skin, so there is no downtime. During the procedure, the skin is thoroughly cleansed, and laser-protective goggles are placed over the eyes.
Before The Procedure.
Makeup – if you have any on – is required to be removed. Facial cleanser and makeup removal is provided. Numbing cream is then to be applied on areas of treatment – which in my case would be the entire face. There are actually people who opt for proceeding on the procedure without any numbing cream or anesthesia. The level of pain during the procedure is bearable, however from my personal experience, I would advise on applying numbing cream if you have really low tolerance towards pain.
During The Procedure.
An invisible laser beam is directed at the face, heating up the deeper layers of the dermis to stimulate collagen production. The laser offers a very comfortable treatment and the sensation can be described as a “tingling” feeling.
Do note that it is common to have a burning smell during the procedure but be rest assured that your skin is not burning. At that moment, I thought mine was. Silly me.
After The Procedure.
After a laser session, there is rarely any visible effect beyond mild to moderate redness, which usually fades within an hour after treatment. Makeup can be applied and patients can immediately resume their regular daily activities.
The entire session takes only approximately 15-20 minutes. It is so much faster compared to the normal facials! I will be sharing with you the before and after photos after more sessions for a better comparison.
