The Spectra™ Carbon Laser Facial Peel
Often referred to as the “Hollywood treatment,” this revolutionary facial peel originated in South Korea but is now embraced worldwide – and for good reason. The Spectra™ Carbon Laser Peel Facial will instantly and painlessly restore and rejuvenate damaged skin to its more youthful condition, making this treatment a favourite “pre-event” facial for A-listers and celebrities alike. Whether you’re prepping for your wedding day, a high school reunion, or another big event, a Spectra™ Carbon Peel will produce dramatic and lasting results. Spectra™ can be delivered as a single refresher treatment – or for those with more problematic skin issues – in a series of treatments. Customized treatment plans will address a wide range of skin problems including:
• Shrinking pore size
• Reducing wrinkles
• Reducing large pores
• Controlling oily skin
• Minimizing and controlling blackheads
• Fading acne scars
• Fading melasma (a.k.a. “Pregnancy Mask”)
• Fading pigmentation/sun damage

What happens during a Spectra™ treatment?
After an initial consultation, the treatment area will be thoroughly cleansed before a thin layer of Carbon lotion is applied. Once the lotion dries and particles have set into the skin, a Spectra™ laser will vaporize the lotion and heat up the outermost layers of the skin. You will experience a warming sensation as the laser absorbs the lotion. Unlike chemical peels, there is no delayed exfoliation or shedding process – the treatment is quick, painless and – best of all – will immediately reveal a more youthful you!

Photo Facial Rejuvenation – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
As we age, the effects of sun damage, our lifestyle choices and the natural aging process become more visible through our complexion ¬– but we have a solution. Photo Facial Rejuvenation (or IPL) is the only non-invasive procedure that treats pigmentation, broken capillaries, chronic redness, red scars and rosacea both safely and consistently. With the use of Intense Pulsed Light technology, this treatment directly targets skin problems at their source, revealing dramatic results with minimal discomfort. Photo facial rejuvenation will treat:
• Freckles & brown spots – face, hands, chest, arms
• Acne rosacea
• Rosacea – persistent redness
• Broken capillaries and chronic redness
• Acne scars
• Hyper pigmentation and dark spots, blotchy skin color, irregular tone

How the Photo Facial Works:
Light is gently pulsed over the skin and is absorbed by either the colour of the lesions or the unwanted blood vessels and broken capillaries. Age spots, brown spots and hyper pigmentation will darken immediately and then fade in the days to come.
IPL treatment can be delivered in a single session or multiple sessions for more stubborn skin issues. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure, tanning beds and self-tanning creams prior to IPL making this an ideal post-summer recovery treatment.
