Brown Spots and Freckles

Spectra is a gentle laser that delivers specialized nanosecond laser energy to reduce visible skin pigmentation. Spectra not only improves uneven pigment, but can also reduce the appearance of textural irregularities and fine lines.

The laser energy gently penetrates tissue heating it up and targeting melanin within cells. The damaged melanin is then removed via your bodies natural healing process. You will probably notice that the pigment darkens slightly while your body works to remove the pigment. The Spectra treatment is very gentle and, as a result, multiple passes can be used to effectively and safely treat even pigment lying deep within the skin.

Brown Spots and Freckles

What To Expect During Your Treatment

Your physician will begin treatment by applying the laser energy to your skin. You will hear slight snapping sounds when the laser is fired and may feel a slight tingling or warmth. Your physician may make multiple passes over your skin with the laser during each treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Treating pigment within tissue is a gradual process that requires multiple sessions to produce effective, long-lasting results. The number of sessions required depends on the severity of your condition. Your physician will recommend a treatment course that is right for your condition. Typically it takes between 1-3 treatments for best results.

Is There Any Downtime?

Brown spots will turn purple,  peel and fall off within 1-2 weeks. Makeup can be used immediately. With no medical downtime and minimal side effects, you may immediately return to your daily activities.

Does a Spectra Treatment Hurt?

The majority of patients report no pain, they only experience a slight warming of their skin and a light prickling feeling. Typically, no anesthesia or topical is needed.

What Can I Do To Avoid Sun Damage?

The number one thing you should do is to protect your skin from the sun at all times. Sunscreen, UV blocking clothing and staying out of the sun are some ways you can protect yourself.
