Your Hollywood Peel Journey

Before Hollywood Peel…

The Hollywood Peel is performed as a highly personalized, in-office procedure. The service provider will examine your skin, discuss your goals, and review your medical history. The Lutronic Spectra™ laser device will be calibrated according to your unique skin type and color to ensure optimal results without harsh side effects.

During Hollywood Peel…

Your service provider will apply a layer of the patented Spectra facial carbon lotion to your skin. It will look like you’re wearing a mud mask. After applying the facial carbon lotion, the service provider will apply laser energy to your skin, which may lead to a slightly warm sensation. The laser device will be moved over your skin multiple times to activate the carbon lotion and facilitate collagen production.

After Hollywood Peel…

The Hollywood Peel procedure doesn’t involve any downtime. You may experience mild post-treatment side effects, such as redness, tenderness, and tingling sensations, and you must wear sunscreen when you step outside. However, you can resume most of your daily activities immediately. The results will appear gradually over several weeks.

Hollywood Peel FAQs

How does Hollywood Peel work?

As you grow older, your skin may develop pigmentation problems, uneven skin tone, scars, wrinkles, etc. The Hollywood Peel procedure involves using a specialized laser to target the excess melanin in the cells and facilitate their natural removal, which improves your overall skin tone and complexion. Furthermore, the thermal energy generated from this treatment also facilitates collagen production, making your skin look firm, toned, and youthful.

How many treatments will I need?

The Hollywood Peel provides cumulative results over several sessions. Your skin will look smoother, softer, and more even-textured after each session, so you need to undergo multiple treatments. However, the specific number of treatments will depend on your unique skin quality and concerns. Our service providers will recommend the ideal treatment frequency for your needs.

Is the Hollywood Peel painful?

The Hollywood Peel is a painless and safe procedure. You might feel a slight warming sensation, followed by a prickling feeling during the treatment. But most patients say the sensation is tolerable. No anesthesia is necessary for the treatment.
