What Can the Spectrum Laser Treat?

Spider Veins


Spider veins can form as we age, and they usually appear on the legs or face. The Spectrum long-pulsed nd:Yag laser can treat these to restore youthful legs and a smooth facial complexion while keeping the skin chilled and comfortable.

Wrinkles and Dark Spots (Pigmented Lesions)


Skin resurfacing with the Spectrum Erbium Yag laser removes wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots (pigmented lesions) to produce smoother skin. Our IPL treatment also targets pigmented lesions for an even complexion.

Regrettable Tattoos


The Spectrum Q-switched laser device is capable of treating a large or small surface to remove tattoos. A built-in component keeps the skin cool for patient comfort as the tattoo ink is targeted.

What Is the Spectrum Laser Process?

Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Pollack reviews your records and medical history, evaluates your skin, and listens to your concerns and goals. This conversation helps him determine the best procedure options to help achieve your desired outcome.

Anesthesia

Sedation or anesthesia is rarely necessary for laser treatments. A topical numbing cream can be used to eliminate discomfort.

Treatment

The Spectrum laser includes different devices for acne treatment, vascular lesions, tattoo removal, and skin refreshment. By penetrating the deeper levels of the skin, new cell growth is stimulated, visible veins and tattoos are removed, and the skin is smoothed.

Concerns

Recovery

You may feel a mild burning or stinging sensation and experience redness, itching, or swelling. These symptoms typically clear up within a few days following treatment. Your skin should continue to improve every day, and it can take up to a month to fully recover. Wear sunscreen daily to protect your skin and follow any post-treatment instructions or recommendations from our team for the best results.


Scars

There shouldn’t be any scars after your Spectrum laser treatments because there are no incisions made. Once the skin heals from a treatment, the appearance should improve without any scarring.


Cost

The level of correction and the number of treatments necessary to achieve your ideal results will determine the cost of your procedure. These details will be discussed during your consultation.


Pain

Topical anesthesia is usually administered so patients feel comfortable during their procedure.
