Dr Batul Patel explains how a Hollywood peel can make you glow

What is a Hollywood Laser Peel?
The famous Hollywood peel helps to stimulate collagen, even out the skin tone and helps to reduce pigmentation. It is also called as Spectra carbon peel which helps to rejuvenate the appearance of aging and damaged skin. It leaves the skin looking radiant and glowing and is a painless treatment with no downtime. It received its name due to its popularity with the Hollywood A-listers before walking the red carpet.

How does Hollywood laser work?
The laser light works on the pigment cells and collagen cells.
1.    It targets the melanin (pigmentation) in the cells, breaking it up so they can be removed naturally by the body and hence doesn't destroy the Melanocytes that reduces the chances of hypopigmentation.

2.    It also heats the deep dermis and causes the skin to contract and stimulates collagen which helps to improve the tone and texture.
Hence this leaves the skin free from any pigmentation, giving a glow and youthful look.

What are the targeted problems for which it can be used?
It can be used on any skin to improve the skin tone and texture and for a more youthful glowing skin. It is also used for targeting inflamed acne lesion that don’t subside with oral medicines and topical creams. It is an advanced facial which stimulates collagen and gives a lovely glow before any major event or party.

What to expect during your treatment
A light layer of a black colour carbon solution is applied and is allowed to dry up for 10 to 15 minutes. The first pass of laser allows the carbon solution to set into the skin through the application of heat and in the second pass you hear snapping sounds as the laser removes the carbon solution along with a very fine layer of skin. Patients might feel slight warmth and tingling sensation. This is a completely painless, non-invasive procedure and patients can walk out without any downtime.

What are the results?

  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Glowing youthful looking skin
  • Improvement in the pores
  • Reduction of fines lines
  • Improvement in the dark circles
  • Reduction in the photo-damaged skin


  • Immediate result
  • No downtime
  • Comfortable procedure
  • Safe for most skin types
  • Improvement in texture and tone
  • Can be repeated many times.

Is there any downtime?  
No, you can return to your regular activities directly following the treatment.

Is there any pain?
The majority of patients report no pain; they only experience a slight warming of their skin and a light prickly feeling. No anesthesia or topical is needed.

How many treatments will I need?  
The Hollywood Laser Peel is a gentle procedure that can be performed every other week, monthly, or even just once before a special event. It depends on the results you are trying to achieve. With regular monthly treatments you can expect ongoing collagen stimulation, even skin tone, texture and youthful skin.

What is the time taken for the procedure?
The time taken for this treatment is only 20 minutes.

How do your educate your patient about the treatment?
Patients are given an in-depth understanding of the science behind the complete procedure. All the individual steps of the treatment are explained in detail. A demonstration video of the procedure is shown to the patient. We also show the patients the Q-switched laser machine so that they are at ease before doing the procedure.

How prevalent is this treatment in India?
Since this treatment is specific to the Q switched laser machine, only very few dermatologists and advanced skin clinics in India perform this treatment.

What is the future of the Hollywood Peel in India?
The Hollywood peel is already very famous among the A-listed Hollywood celebrities and hence its name. In today's day and age patients prefer quick results, without any downtime and in a non-invasive manner. This is why the Hollywood peel is now becoming extremely popular in India.
