To simplify things, we have compiled all you need to know about the technology used by Dr Ho Rui Ming well as the different conditions that it is applicable to.
The Spectra XT Laser

Acne and PORES!
With a different mode, the Hollywood Peel function can be utilised to clear off excess dead skin and debris on the skin surface, unclog pores and regulate sebum/ oil production. This is especially good for acne where one of the main causes is over production of sebum and oil.

BB Laser aka Crystal Brightening Laser
The BB Laser is an exceptional laser that incorporates a 2-in-1 function; Skin brightening/ whitening + Skin Smoothening!

With its additional Fractional technology, the BB Laser is able to regenerate new skin and stimulate new collagen, thereby, smoothening and improving the texture of the skin as well as shrinking enlarged pores.

Something additional to take note of are Ablative Lasers. These are lasers that work by firstly destroying the upper most skin layer before destroying subsequent deeper layers of the skin to produce its result: evening of skin texture and acne scars
Ablative Lasers came out many years ago and was regarded as a common treatment for skin texture irregularities and acne scarring. Such lasers include the CO2 (carbon dioxide) laser and the Erbium laser. Downtime was prolonged and the redness and peeling associated with it could take up to weeks to recover!
However, with advances in technology, other treatment modalities such as the effective Venus Viva Radiofrequency device, have since superseded these harsh lasers to produce comparable or superior results but with HALF the downtime!
