Laser manufacturer Lutronic Lasers has developed a new treatment that aims to aid collagen stimulation and improves the appearance of pigmentation.
The Spectra Carbon Peel, which is performed using the Lutronic Spectra XT device, aims to require little to no downtime and works to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce pore size and smooth uneven skin tone.
The procedure begins with the application of a carbon-based lotion to the patient’s face, followed by laser treatment that aims to lightly remove the carbon particles and erode the top layer of skin. The laser energy then heats the skin, causing it to contract to reduce pore size and stimulate healthy new collagen.
Jim Westwood, managing director of Venn Aesthetics, who is the UK distributor of the treatment said, “We are delighted to introduce this advanced and novel treatment to the aesthetic market and we are happy to offer clinics a fast, comfortable and highly effective patient treatment.”
The treatment aims to be suitable for all skin types and, for full effectiveness, patients are advised to undergo a course of three treatments.
