The Carbon Laser Peel makes the skin look and feel firmer through an application of carbon powder, which is then removed with a laser. As the carbon powder is able to penetrate deep into the pores, it allows the laser to focus its energy more effectively and target active acne.
How does it work?
1. APPLY CARBON POWDER
This carbon powder has the ability to absorb dirt from deep within the pores. It can also act to reduce the inflammation of acne and exfoliate the skin.
The laser breaks down the carbon powder, taking with it any contaminants that it has absorbed. The carbon particles are very small, and are able to penetrate into pores and hard to reach places, allowing the laser to effectively deliver its energy to these targeted areas.
The small amount of heat produced when the carbon powder is being broken down stimulates collagen production in the skin, giving the benefit of plumper, glowing skin with diminished fine lines and wrinkles. At the same time, the heat destroys the P-acne bacteria responsible for pimples, achieving better acne control.
Will the treatment be painful?
The laser feels like a gentle “warm prickling” sensation on the skin and is not painful.
Will there be any downtime?
The Carbon Laser Peel is a quick procedure that has no downtime. It does not break the continuity in skin tissue during treatment.
A mild flushing of the treated area might appear and would usually resolve about 30 minutes. As with all medical treatments, chances side effects and complications can occur but are rare.
