Whether you’re a teenager navigating adolescence or an adult dealing with persistent breakouts, acne can significantly impact your life. If acne holds you back, know that you are not alone.
Troy Laser Center helps patients regain their confidence with treatments that clear up acne-prone skin. Our clinic (TLC) offers compassionate care and guidance so patients can feel their most confident.
In this blog, we will discuss an effective treatment for both active acne and acne scars—the Hollywood Spectra Laser.
What is the Hollywood laser?
The Hollywood Laser is a carbon laser peel that has no downtime. With a three-step process, this treatment can reduce acne and acne scarring, treat melasma, reduce pore size, increase collagen, and more.

Here’s what you can expect from the process:
- We apply a carbon lotion to your skin (it feels similar to a mud mask). We wait about 10 minutes for the mask to settle in and dry on your skin.
- Our laser technician passes over the treatment area with a laser. This heats the mask and allows the carbon particles to sink deep into the pores of your skin.
- We change the laser settings to pulse rapidly over the surface of your skin.
How does it work?
When we apply the carbon lotion to your skin, the carbon particles bind with dirt, oil, and other pollutants on the surface of your skin. When we introduce the laser, it allows the carbon particles to sink into your pores.
When we modify the laser settings to pulse over your skin, it destroys the carbon along with all of the impurities buried in your pores. This deeply cleans the skin, stimulates the production of collagen, and decreases oil production.
But if you have acne, you know that active pimples aren’t the only problem—it’s also the scars they leave behind. The Hollywood laser in Troy can help correct those dark spots by breaking down excess pigment for a more even skin tone.
