WHAT IS SPECTRA LASER TONING?
Spectra Laser Toning is two part procedure involving the application of a photo-enhancer with laser energy to reduce visible pigmentation. Laser toning not only improves the texture and unevenness of the skin, but also reduces pore size.
WILL MY MELASMA BE GONE FOREVER?
No. Melasma is driven by your hormones. Spectra Laser Toning only treats the symptoms of melasma: the brown discolorations you see on your face.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL IT TAKE BEFORE I BEGIN TO SEE A DIFFERENCE?
Everyone's skin responds a bit differently, and your results will depend on your compliance with your clinician's instructions, however, most patients begin to see results between their second and third treatments.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS UNTIL I'M CLEAR?
This depends upon the depth of the lesions and how compliant you are with the treatment protocol. You may never get total clearance, but virtually all of our patients receive results they consider to be satisfactory.
HOW OFTEN WILL I NEED "MAINTENANCE" VISITS?
We typically see our melasma patients once a quarter, but this, too, can vary patient to patient depending on the hormonal conditions involved.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
No. Patients return to normal activity immediately.
WHAT CAN I DO AFTER MY TREATMENT?
If you have Melasma you should avoid the sun whenever possible. Prolonged exposure to the sun may worsen the condition. In addition, prolonged exposure to the sun can limit the effectiveness of your treatment. Applying a good sunscreen after laser toning will not only help your treatment to work better; but will also help reduce the chances of the spots reappearing.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
It is important to allow adequate time for results to occur. Melasma treatment is a gradual process that requires 6-8 sessions to produce effective results. With no downtime and minimal side effects, you may immediately return to your daily activities.
