What Is a Spectra Carbon “Hollywood” Laser Peel?

The Spectra Carbon Laser Peel (aka Hollywood Peel) is a virtually painless, no-downtime, highly requested procedure. It instantly creates a radiant, glowing appearance. Its name derives from the popularity of the treatments that actors undergo before walking the red carpet.

This procedure can only be performed with a special Spectra™ laser that releases micro and nano second pulses at extremely low energies. Sectra is the only carbon peeling laser with that capability.

Immediately following treatment, the skin is extraordinarily smooth and radiant. Acne sufferers see remarkable and lasting relief after just three peels. Hollywood carbon facials require three treatments four weeks apart, and they maintain their look with semiannual visits.

What Are the Benefits of Hollywood Facial Treatments?

  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Glowing, youthful-looking skin
  • Smoother, softer and tighter skin
  • Increased collagen production
  • Reduction of fine lines
  • Reduction of blackheads
  • Tightened pores
  • Reduced skin oiliness
  • Safe for most skin tones

How Does the Spectra Carbon "Hollywood" Laser Peel Work?

The laser energy works to:

  • Target the melanin (pigmentation) in the cells, breaking it up so it can be naturally removed by the body.
  • Spread heat deep into the dermis layer, causing the skin to contract while stimulating the production of collagen.

What Can You Expect During and After the Treatment?

Here’s what happens during your carbon peel facial:

  1. A light layer of Spectra carbon lotion is applied to your skin and allowed to set for 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. A low energy laser pass sets the carbon and warms the skin.
  3. Then slightly higher energy laser pulses are applied to vaporize the carbon. You will hear snapping sounds, and feel a slight tingling or warmth as the laser removes the carbon. This Step exfoliates and helps remove pore blockage.
  4. A final laser pass stimulates collagen to help thighten the skin and address fine lines and pigment correction.
  5. The majority of clients feel no pain. They report experiencing a slight warming of their skin and a light prickly feeling. No anesthesia or topical pain reliever is used.
  6. The entire procedure lasts 30 minutes or less.

There is zero downtime. After treatment, you can immediately resume your regular activities.

How Many Treatments Are Typically Needed?

The Spectra Carbon Laser Peel (Hollywood Carbon Peel) is a gentle procedure that can be performed every other week, monthly or just once before a special event. Your skin will improve with each treatment. Once you achieve the results you are seeking semi-annual ‘tune-ups’ will maintain results.

  • For glowing skin before a special occasion, have the procedure done a day or two prior to the event.
  • For ongoing collagen stimulation, even skin tone, texture and youthful skin, we recommend monthly treatments.
