Spectra Gold is a laser treatment that is used to treat blemishes, freckles, birthmarks, scars, and tattoo pigments, and is more effective than IPL. It transmits laser energy to break down melanin, which will be absorbed or digested by the white blood cells and will be removed from the body in the form of wastes. The procedure does not cause any side effects. Treatment should be performed 3-6 times for optimal results. However, the number of treatments depends on the depth of the pigments.
- It stimulates the production of collagen, which results in a youthful, smooth, and soft skin. The first treatment session can noticeably improve the skin by 80%. However, it is recommended to receive at least 3 treatment sessions at the interval of 3-6 weeks for optimal results. Treatment areas will become darker after the treatment, since the laser beam destroyed abnormal pigments and broke down melanin to be removed by white blood cells. Once these melanin have been completely removed from the body, the treatment areas will return to the normal condition and become lighter, which takes about 23 months depending on each individual’s skin condition.
- It helps to remove tattoo pigments and birthmarks through the use of the same procedure. A lowfrequency machine is suitable for removing red tattoo pigments, while a high-frequency machine is suitable for removing black and blue inks. Repetitive laser treatments may be required for an effective tattoo removal. However, the number of treatments depends on the ink color and the age of the tattoo, since the process of tattoo removal must start from removing pigments in the epidermis layer and must wait until the wound is completely healed before removing pigments in the next layer. Patients who wish to remove tattoos are recommended to receive 3-6 treatment sessions at the interval of 2 weeks. The ink colors that can obtain the best results are black, brown, blue, and red. However, green and yellow inks cannot be treated with Spectra Gold laser.
