SPECTRA XT is the only Laser on the market FDA cleared to treat melasma
Laser toning is a gentler alternative to ablative laser treatments, with no downtime and a low risk of complications for all skin types.
This treatment offers many benefits over traditional resurfacing methods. The 1064 nm infrared wavelength of the Spectra laser is becoming the method of choice for all skin types.
With the Spectra laser, there is very low risk of pigmentary changes, burns, or scarring.
Laser Toning removes & lightens the appearance of melasma as melanin and melanosomes in the skin are selectively destroyed by the laser energy.
Laser Revital Facial Treatment
Using the 1064nm quasi-long pulse, Spectra Revital enhances collagen synthesis followed by collagen remodelling -plumping lines and wrinkles, reducing redness, shrinking pores associated with excessive sebum production through controlling sebaceous gland activity and achieving pore tightening, as well as heating and killing the p-acne bacteria found within the sebaceous gland associated with active acne.
Laser Gold Toning
Facial redness can seem like a tricky concern to treat, with clients often been prescribed harsh topical creams with no improvements. Spectra introduces gold toning; a non abrasive treatment that uses a laser to target the root of the cause which lies deeper in the skin.
The principle of this treatment is not to destroy the target blood vessels like traditional lasers but to normalize them, thus reducing inflammation. This limits the damage to the surrounding area and restores the healthy state of the affected cells in the skin.

- Facial Flushing
- Post Acne Redness
- Post inflammatory hyper pigmentation
Revital Treatment Treats:
