It is generally a rule of thumb to avoid lasers and penetrative skin treatments if you’re going to be spending a lot of time in the sun, but Hollywood Laser Peels are very safe to do during summer! They’re a non-invasive option to boost the appearance of your skin. HydraFacials, Microneedling, and chemical peels are also acceptable, if you are diligent about applying your SPF. However, the Hollywood Laser Peel is a quick skin-refresher to give you a beautiful glow, without any downtime.
The Hollywood Laser Peel, also known as Spectra Peel, is a non-invasive laser treatment designed to improve the appearance of the skin by reducing pigmentation, fine lines, and removing dead skin cells. The treatment uses a specialized laser to gently heat the upper layers of the skin, which triggers a natural healing response and stimulates collagen production, all with zero downtime!
During the treatment, a specialized laser is used to deliver short pulses of light to the skin, targeting areas of pigmentation, fine lines, and textural issues. The laser energy is absorbed by the melanin in the skin, which breaks up the pigmentation and causes the cells to be eliminated by the body’s natural processes. The heat from the laser also stimulates collagen production, which helps to plump up the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The Hollywood Laser Peel is a relatively quick and painless procedure that typically takes around 30-45 minutes to complete, hence the nickname, “lunchtime laser.” Patients may experience minimal discomfort during the treatment, but is usually well-tolerated. No numbing cream is required and it is safe to complete during the summer!
After the treatment, patients may experience some redness, but this typically resolves within a few hours. Results from the Hollywood Laser Peel are usually visible after just one treatment, but a series of treatments may be recommended for best results. Patients can schedule these 4-6 weeks apart!
Overall, the Hollywood Laser Peel is an effective way to improve the appearance of the skin and get a nice glow without the downtime! Book your appointment for that red-carpet-ready look!
