With the advanced Spectra™ laser treatment, our experienced dermatologists here at the Dermatology & Laser Surgery Center can give your skin a healthier, more even-toned, and youthful appearance. The Spectra™ Dual Mode Q-Switched Nd:YAG Laser system, developed by Lutronic, is the only laser currently available that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to treat melasma. This technique can also be very beneficial for patients considering treatment options for hyperpigmentation and many other common conditions. Plus, the Spectra™ laser treatment can be performed effectively on a wide range of skin types. This new addition to our expansive selection of state-of-the-art laser procedures has been shown to provide patients with beautiful, long-lasting results.
How it Works
The Spectra™ procedure uses a non-ablative laser technique and does not typically require a topical anesthetic. This treatment is known to be very gentle and effective, and is completely customized for your individual needs and goals. The laser will be precisely guided over the skin to remove the damaged outer layers and stimulate the production of healthy skin cells. This ultimately leads to a renewed appearance to the skin with results that continue to improve.

This treatment is known to be very gentle and effective, and is completely customized for your individual needs and goals. The laser will be precisely guided over the skin to target sun-damaged outer layers and stimulate the production of healthy skin cells. This ultimately leads to a renewed appearance to the skin with results that continue to improve.
Multiple treatment sessions may be necessary for the best results, depending on the nature and extent of the condition being treated; however, many patients have experienced noticeable results after just two or three Spectra™ procedures. The treatment itself usually takes under fifteen minutes to complete, and most patients require little to no downtime after the procedure.
Benefits of Spectra™ Laser Treatment
The Spectra™ laser system can utilize multiple wavelengths, which makes it possible to treat an array of skin conditions. This procedure can be very effective for the reduction of:
- Melasma and hyperpigmentation
- Sun damage
- Brown spots
- Acne and acne scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Pigmented skin lesions
Spectra™ laser treatment can also be an effective way to minimize the appearance of tattoos.
Spectra™ laser skin resurfacing can give the skin a more even appearance by significantly enhancing tone and texture. Patients often experience results such as smoother skin, reduction in the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation, minimized pores, and less visible acne scars. One of our skilled dermatologists will meet with you for an initial consultation to determine if Spectra™ laser treatment is right for your needs. You are encouraged to ask any questions you may have, and our doctor will explain all aspects of the procedure so you have a clear idea of what to expect.
