Spectra Laser Toning
& Gold Toning
Laser toning is a comfortable, non-invasive, non-ablative technique for treating pigmentation disorders of the skin. No damage is done to the skin surface; the laser energy beam is specifically aimed at the pigment in the skin. The laser only heats the intended pigment, without actually damaging the skin tissue. This controlled thermal action causes a natural reaction in the body that stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. After the procedure, our own immune system removes the fragmented pigment particles to get rid of the skin discoloration.
The laser toning treatment is a 'lunchtime procedure' - short, no downtime, daily activities can be resumed immediately.
The number of sessions required depends on the severity of the pigmentation, the area to be treated and the skin type of the patient. The laser makes the skin more sensitive to light, so sun protection is very important
after and between sessions.
In addition to removing pigmentation, laser toning also helps with skin tightening and overall skin rejuvenation. It is safe for all skin types, including dark skin tones and sensitive skin types. Laser toning can also be combined with a carbon suspension (see Spectra carbon laser peel). The fusion of carbon with laser gives wonderful results for the skin, especially for acne-prone skin.
‘No pain-no downtime’ procedures for erythema (red color change of the skin, caused by vasodilation),
and residual acne lesions.
The principle of this treatment is not to destroy the intended blood vessels - as traditional lasers do - but to normalize them and thus reduce inflammation. Not only does it help to reduce the redness associated with acne, but it also reduces the inflammatory response by restoring the abnormal vascular condition that the skin is in.
Some redness / swelling can be experienced on the treated area, usually disappearing within 1 to 2 hours after treatment, in some cases 1 to 2 days.
On average, 5 treatment sessions are required with a 1 to 2 week interval.
