About the Treatment

The Spectra VRM III is an award winning Q-switched Nd: YAG laser system that treats multiple dermatological concerns. Different applications are tailored to specific skin concerns ranging from skin brightening, improved tone and texture, wrinkles, scars, and pore size reduction—to melasma, pigmented lesions, dermal lesions, inflammatory acne and tattoo removal. The most powerful laser in its class, it delivers results that have traditionally required two different laser systems to achieve.

Soft Peel™ for Melasma / Post iInflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH)

Soft Peel is a non-invasive, skin resurfacing procedure that yields dramatic results for acne, acne scars, fine wrinkles and enlarged pores. During the Soft Peel treatment, the laser gently heats and exfoliates the outermost layer of skin—stimulating collagen for improved skin tone, texture, and wrinkle and scar reduction. The results are a smoother, tighter, healthier skin.

What is Melasma?

Melasma is a common condition characterized by large, uneven patches of brown or tan spots on the face. This excess of melanin can be a result of several factors including: hormonal changes during the aging process, sun exposure, birth control pills or pregnancy. It creates an uneven or mottled appearance to the skin and may affect some ethnicities more than others. With treatment and maintenance, you can maintain an even and clear complexion.

Soft Peel is a safe, gentle, effective, non-invasive procedure that improves the appearance of Melasma and colored lesions on the skin. Certain difficult pigmentations have been untreatable in the past, particularly among Asian patients. The new Spectra VRM III has proven successful and effective in the treatment of the darkest pigmentations; leading to a high level of patient satisfaction.

Treating both dermal and epidermal Melasma, this combination treatment destroys the excess melanin responsible for Melasma or PIH. A photo-enhancer is applied to the skin and targeted with laser energy to break down the excess pigment in the skin. Over the course of several treatments—the dark patches will gradually fade away to reveal a more even complexion. The skin is clearer with improved texture and a lessening of fine wrinkles. As the skin is tightened and rejuvenated—a visible shrinking of pore size occurs.
