Lutronic® Spectra™ XT

Spectra™ XT is a powerful Q-switched Nd YAG multiplatform laser with a dual-pulsed mode: Q-switched mode and Spectra™ mode. With the addition of extended treatments, namely Gold Toning with 595nm, RuVY Touch with 660nm and Revital Treatment with high powered 1064 nm quasi-long pulse, many conditions can be addressed with this versatile system with minimal downtime.

The following treatments can be performed using the conventional 532 and 1064 nm wavelengths:

Using a 5-7 nanosecond pulse width in Q-switched mode, this setting addresses a variety of pigmentary issues including melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. 

What are the benefits of Spectra Carbon Peel?

  • Smoother, radiant skin
  • Improved skin tone
  • Reduction in acne and seborrhea
  • Reduction in appearance of facial pores

What does Spectra Carbon Peel involve?

  • We will first apply a layer of carbon lotion.
  • Laser is passed over the skin in Spectra mode, which enhances the penetration of carbon deep into pores.
  • The laser is then passed over the skin again, this time in Q-switched mode, which removes the carbon layer and exfoliates the skin simultaneously.

This superficial peeling removes sebum and unclogs pores. It also stimulates collagen production and shrinks pores. Spectra Carbon Peel is comfortable with no downtime involved.

With the combination of high peak power and short pulse width, Spectra™ XT delivers efficient destruction of the target pigment with minimal collateral thermal damage and downtime.

The Spectra™ XT is able to offer a wider diversity of skin rejuvenation treatments with the following new treatment wavelengths:

As depicted in the graph below, the excellent absorption characteristic by oxyhaemoglobin at this wavelength gives better penetration to problematic blood vessels seen in inflammatory skin disorders. As such, Gold Toning is excellent for:

  • Post-acne redness
  • Inflammatory acne
  • Facial flushing
  • Melasma with abnormal dermal vascular activity

Treatment of epidermal pigmented lesions such as freckles is usually done with the conventional 532 nm wavelength. 660 nm is however, a safer wavelength due to its lower absorption characteristic by oxy and deoxyhaemoglobin, which allows vessels to remain intact after treatment. This minimises the risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and the downtime involved post treatment. RuVY Touch is excellent for:

  • Freckles
  • Epidermal pigmented lesions

This high powered quasi-long pulse 1064 nm is capable of delivering a maximum of 45J in a second, thereby, promoting collagen remodelling. Revital Treatment is excellent for:

  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Seborrhea with enlarged facial pores
  • Inflammatory acne with seborrhea

The Spectra™ XT is a versatile platform which addresses a variety of skin issues with minimal downtime. Have a conversation with us to find out more about this treatment!
