The Hollywood Peel is the application of specialized Q-switch laser energy to reduce visible skin pigmentation, improve skin tone and more. It not only improves uneven pigment but can also reduce the appearance of textural irregularities and fine lines.
The laser energy works in two ways, first it gently targets the melanin (pigmentation) in the cells breaking it up for your body’s natural removal processes, and second it heats deep in the dermis causing the skin to contract and stimulate collagen. Because the treatment is gentle, multiple passes are needed in order to obtain optimal results.
You will notice:
Glowing youthful looking skin Improved overall skin tone Smoother feeling skin Reduction in appearance of fine lines and acne scars
