The Complete Guide To The Spectra Laser ‘Hollywood Peel’
If you’ve any interest in celebrity beauty tips there’s a fair chance you’ll have heard of the ‘Hollywood peel’. While it may sound like a fancy way of serving fruit, it’s actually a skin treatment, officially known as the Carbon Spectra Peel – an increasingly popular skin resurfacing treatment.
The process has been used successfully by the likes of Angelina Jolie and Kim Kardashian as part of their skin rejuvenation routine.
What is the spectra carbon laser peel?
The Spectra Carbon Laser Peel is a quick, no down time laser treatment that rejuvenates the skin, fights signs of aging and damaged skin. The Carbon Laser Peel, or Hollywood Peel as it’s commonly known is a gentle procedure, safe on almost all skin types and is the perfect way to get a quick skin rejuvenation without the longer downtime associated with other harsher laser treatments.
Laser peel garners a number of benefits – it evens out your skin tone, reduces pigmentation, lines, blemishes and scars – leaving your skin feeling and looking younger. Although one treatment will suffice, it is more effective if you have several treatments over a period of time.
Spectra Peel involves the application of specialised laser energy to reduce visible skin pigmentation, improve skin tone and more. Spectra Peel not only improves uneven pigment, but can also reduce the appearance of textural irregularities and fine lines.
How the spectra / Hollywood peel works
Laser energy lightly removes carbon particles within lotion which also heats the dermis of your skin and lightly ablates the top layer of dead skin. The laser energy breaks up pigment that is then carried away by your body, and heats the skin causing the skin to contract while at the same time stimulating the building of collagen.
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 process. Secondly 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.
During the Hollywood laser peel treatment
During the laser peel process, your clinician will apply a layer of Carbon Spectra lotion to the skin, this lotion has a carbon base, so your skin will look as if you are wearing a mud mask.
Laser energy is then applied to the skin, you will hear slight snapping sounds when the laser is fired and may feel a slight tingling or warmth. Multiple passes will be made over the skin with the laser during each treatment.
What are the results of a Hollywood peel?
After treatment, skin appears more consistent in tone and appearance – you really do ‘glow’. Many peel fans describe their skin as feeling ‘alive’ after a session.

So no recovery time, no downtime, no messy creams or lotions, no harsh or uncomfortable treatments – it’s no wonder the Hollywood peel is one of the most popular weapons a clinic can have in the battle with the effects of ageing.
