Spectra/Laser toning is a treatment method using the Lutronic Spectra Q-switch laser (infrared wavelength of 1064nm). We switch between with and without Spectra carbon lotion, for the treatment of melasma and post inflammatory hyper-pigmentation (dark spots on the skin left by inflammatory acne lesions). When the laser is activated, faint snapping noises can be heard, and mild warmth may be felt. The technique uses a low fluence multi-pass method to slowly break down and effectively remove pigments. The melanin in the cells is the target of the laser energy. The energy breaks it up so it can be flushed out of the body. To reach deeper layers of tissue, the treatment must be repeated several times.
Treatments are done at 1-2 weekly intervals. Usually, a minimum of 5-10 sessions are required to achieve satisfactory results.
