Lutronic Spectra XT Gold Toning
Spectra Gold is a toning treatment suitable for individuals who have acne, rosacea and skin flushing. The laser gently treats active acne and reddening of the skin associated with rosacea and post-acne scarring also known as post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The Spectra Gold treatment can be performed as a stand-alone treatment or as an add on to one of our other facial treatments here at Face the Future Clinic.
How does Spectra Gold work?
Spectra XT is the only FDA approved laser for treating rosacea and facial flushing. The gold handpiece is intended to counteract reddening of the skin and works by not directly destroying the abnormal blood vessels but normalising them. This reduces the possible side effects of the destruction of the blood vessels by lessening the inflammation in the surrounding area. In addition, Gold Toning restores the healthy state of the affected cells that surround the micro vessels with abnormal activity.
Spectra Gold also helps active acne as it shrinks the oil glands, drying up and killing bad bacteria that causes acne. This procedure is non-ablative (the laser heats underlying skin without harming the surface), very comfortable and has very little or no downtime.
Duration of treatment – 30 minutes.
Anaesthesia required – None.
Downtime – None. Some mild erythema or flushing may be experienced.
Final results – Clearer complexion, anti-inflammatory action and more even skin tone.
Suitable for – Acne, rosacea and facial flushing.
