Lutronic Spectra VRM Q-Switched Nd:YAG 532/1064nm

Lutronic Spectra VRM laser is one of the most advanced “nano-second” technology laser available in the market.

How it works?

Lutronic Spectra’s short pulse width ranges in 5 to 10 nanosecond (billionth of a second) in the Q-switched mode. Combined with high peak power, it allows efficient destruction of the target pigment with minimal collateral thermal damage, meeting the criteria of selective photo-thermolysis; making it one of the most technologically advanced laser to treat dermal and epidermal pigmented lesions.

As a result, Spectra is one of very few laser systems out in the market to have received a FDA clearance for the treatment of melasma (one of most difficult pigmentary issues to treat). In addition, with four distinct Q-switched mode wavelength (1064nm, 532nm, 585nm, 650nm), Spectra has the versatility to treat wide range of tattoo colors.

What makes Lutronic Spectra really stand out is that it was the first Q-switched laser to introduce “Dual- pulsed” mode where in addition to the Q-switched mode, a “Spectra” (quasi-long 300 microsecond) mode was introduced to allow more versatile laser toning as well as non-ablative skin rejuvenation, better known as “Hollywood” Spectra peel. The protocol for dual pulsed Spectra Hollywood Peel involves:

1. Applying carbon lotion and allowing it to seep deep into the pores.
2. The laser is then applied in “Spectra” Mode to gently heat the carbon lotion.
3. The laser is switched into “Q-switched” mode to effectively vaporize the dried carbon lotion deep in the pores.

The patented dual pulsed Spectra Hollywood Peel will:

1. Exfoliate the stratum corneum (outer dead layer of your skin)
2. Reduce the sebum production
3. Improve the blemishes and uneven texture
4. Stimulate collagen regeneration
5. Reduce enlarged pores
6. Improve hyper-pigmentation
7. Reduce vellus hair (very fine fuzzy hair)

There is almost no down time and safe for most skin color. Although most patients see some improvement immediately, at least 3 to 5 peels, spaced between to 2 to 4 weeks are recommended to achieve a clearer, younger looking skin with a greater glow.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Overall improvement of texture, pore, tone (Spectra Hollywood Peel)

Back of hands

Usually 3 to 5 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart for optimal improvement. Many patients opt for maintenance package which can vary depending on conditions being treated.

1. Spectra Hollywood Peel has no real down time so you can resume your daily activities immediately.
2. “Toning” treatment for various pigmentary issues including melasma has no real down time.
3. Successful “Spot” removal of pigment and tattoo will initially cause frosting, then crust formation, which need to fall off gently allowing new skin to regenerate from below. This entire process will require usually a week for the skin to completely heal.
