Hollywood Spectra

Reduce pigmentation, acne, and pore size while rejuvenating skin or remove tattoos with the one of a kind Hollywood Spectra Laser treatments at Physician Skin Solutions in Glendale, AZ!

What Is The Hollywood Spectra?

The Lutronic Hollywood Spectra™ is the world’s leading Short Pulse1064/532nm laser platform with proprietary capabilities to reduce unwanted pigmentation and restore glowing skin. Its advanced and user-friendly design allows us to lighten and brighten patient complexions, remove tattoos, and uniquely perform the popular Hollywood Laser Peel also known as a laser carbon peel.

What Does It Treat?

The Hollywood Spectra is such a versatile device that we need to categorize its treatment capabilities.

  • Treats Pigmentation and Melasma
  • Hollywood Laser Peel and Acne Peel
  • Skin Rejuvenation, Collagen Production & Pore Reduction
  • Tattoo Removal

How does it work for Pigment and Melasma?

The “gold standard” Hollywood Spectra Laser is FDA-approved and very effective in reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, brown spots, freckles and deeper pigment such as Melasma on the face. The laser targets and breaks down the pigment into smaller particles that can be removed naturally by the body. It leaves skin warm, bright, and smooth. Treatments typically have minimal to no downtime but may include temporary redness and a mild sunburn-like effect that can last 2-24 hours afterwards.

What Are The Benefits?

  • Reduces or eliminates the appearance of age spots and pigment
  • Safe for most skin types
  • Quick and comfortable procedure
  • Can treat deeper more stubborn pigmentation.
  • Evens out skin tone and color
  • Minimal to no downtime

When Will I See the Results?

It depends on the severity and depth of your skin’s pigmentation. For pigmented lesions, results can be seen in days. For more stubbon pigments such as Melasma it can take a few months to see results.

How Many Treatments Will I need?

For Melasma, 6-12 treatments are needed. We often combine the Hollywood Spectra with the LaseMD Ultra to achieve faster results. For pigmented lesions, typically two to three treatments are needed.

Is There Downtime?

There is no downtime.  If treating pigmented lesions, you can experience micro crusting which will slough off naturally in five to seven days.

Does It Hurt?

No, it does not hurt, it is a very comfortable procedure.

What is The Hollywood Laser Peel and Spectra Acne Peel?

This proprietary anti-aging treatment has been popularized in social media by the stars that have requested this treatment before walking the red carpet.

The Hollywood Laser Peel is a comfortable procedure suitable for all skin types. It can be performed year-round without requiring the extensive recovery time that other laser treatments typically necessitate. Its primary goal is to revitalize your skin by reducing the visible signs of aging or damaged skin, addressing uneven skin pigmentation, and improving the appearance of pores and acne. The Hollywood Laser Peel gently exfoliates the skin, leaving it softer and smoother, resulting in a vibrant and radiant complexion.

How is it done?

First, we apply a patented Spectra Carbon Lotion to the skin and allow it to dry.  Then we heat up the carbon, this heat helps to produce collagen and even out skin tone.  Once all the carbon is heated, we change the Laser’s settings and vaporize off the carbon.  This part can get a little noisy, but it is also the fun part of the treatment. If we are doing the Spectra Acne Peel, we will once again change the settings and use the laser to concentrate on areas of breakouts killing the bacteria that causes acne.

How does hollywood spectra peel work in four steps

How Does It Work?

It works in multiple ways: (1) by breaking up the pigmentation in the skin, allowing it to be naturally removed by the body (2) by heating the skin, triggering the production of collagen. (3) the heat kills acne bacteria (4) The patented carbon lotion seeps into the pores and sebaceous glands. That is why the peel helps in cutting down on oil production and promoting collagen growth, eventually decreasing the pore size.

What Are The Benefits?

  • Exfoliates the skin and gives you an amazing glow
  • Lightens and eliminates dark spots and evens out tone
  • It gets rid of fine lines and reduces the size of pores, giving you smoother, more touchable skin
  • Reduces and eliminates acne and acne marks
  • Achieves long-term results without downtimeHollywood Spectra before & after pictures of a patient who saw reduced acne scarring and pigmentation on their cheek.
  • Suitable for most skin types, even highly sensitive ones
  • It’s quick and painless
  • It can be done over and over without any problem

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments needed depends on your goals and skin condition. One treatment will prepare you if you are planning a big event or hot date. However, to see lasting results, it is recommended that you do a series of six.

Does It Hurt?

No, this is a very comfortable procedure.

Skin Rejuvenation, Collagen Production & Pore Reduction

A new handpiece was recently created for the Hollywood Spectra.  The Multi Depth Focus (MDF) handpiece allows for fractionated delivery of energy at three different depths.  This enables us to provide collagen rejuvenation with minimal downtime.

Studies have shown it helps reduce the appearance of pores and scars while rejuvenating the skin.

  • New collagen and elastin production
  • Smoother, tighter skin

The creation of new collagen can take two to three months to start noticing it.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Depending on your skin and goals, three to six treatments are usually needed.

Does It Hurt?

It is a comfortable procedure; at higher energy levels we use topical numbing.

Is There Downtime?

There is no downtime, but you may be red for one to three days.

Tattoo Removal

How Does It Work?

The Spectra Dual-pulsed laser has earned its reputation as the gold standard for tattoo removal. Its cutting-edge technology utilizes ultra-short, high-energy pulses to effectively break down tattoo ink into minuscule particles that can be easily absorbed by the body. With the Spectra laser, there’s no need to worry about the color, intensity, or depth of your tattoo because it can effectively treat the widest range of these variables. This innovative laser technology not only produces maximum treatment results but also minimizes patient discomfort and recovery time. Once the ink particles have been shattered, they can be eliminated by the body’s lymphatic system. The body recognizes the foreign particles and gradually removes them over time.

What Are The Benefits?

The Lutronic Hollywood Spectra Laser is a safe and effective option for tattoo removal that offers several benefits, including:

  1. High success rate: The Lutronic Hollywood Spectra Laser has a high success rate in removing tattoos, with many patients seeing significant improvement in the appearance of their tattoos after just a few sessions.
  2. Minimal scarring: The laser is designed to break down the ink particles without causing damage to the surrounding skin. This can minimize scarring and other unwanted side effects.
  3. Customizable treatment: The laser can be customized to target specific colors and ink types, allowing for a more effective and efficient treatment.
  4. Fast treatment: The Lutronic Hollywood Spectra Laser delivers light pulses in short bursts, allowing for fast treatment times and minimal downtime.
  5. Safe and FDA-approved: The laser is FDA-approved for use in tattoo removal and has been shown to be safe and effective in numerous clinical studies.
  6. Minimal discomfort: While some patients may experience mild discomfort during treatment, the Lutronic Hollywood Spectra Laser is designed to minimize pain and discomfort, and most patients find the treatment tolerable.

Overall, the Lutronic Hollywood Spectra Laser is an excellent option for individuals looking to remove unwanted tattoos safely and effectively.

When Will I See Results?

You will start to notice results after the first treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The number of sessions required for complete tattoo removal varies depending on the size, color, and age of the tattoo, as well as the patient’s individual response to treatment.

Does It Hurt?

The treatment may cause some discomfort, but most patients find it tolerable. There is also an option to opt for injection numbing, for a small fee.
