We are extremely excited at the arrival of our new laser machine - the M22. The M22 has many functions whether you need hair removal, skin rejuvenation or to remove skin pigmentation or acne. 

The first treatment we wanted to tell you all about is the carbon laser peel. This peel is often dubbed the ‘Hollywood Peel’ or ‘Red Carpet Peel’ because of celebrity interest. The results are incredible - refreshed, exfoliated skin that is softened, smoothed, and firmed in just 20 minutes.

What areas can the carbon laser peel treat?

The carbon laser peel is most often used to address black heads, open pores and excess oil as a facial, but it can be performed anywhere on the body. 

How does the carbon laser peel work?

Unlike other laser treatments that rely exclusively on light energy to transform skin, the carbon laser peel is a 2-part process. First, a luxurious natural carbon cream is applied to the surface of the skin and allowed to dry. The non-toxic lotion looks something like a mud mask with a dark grey-brown colouring and rich texture. Natural carbon quickly absorbs oil, impurities, and dead skin cells from deep within pores and pulls toxins to the surface. The carbon mask also creates an even Plato for the laser energy. After the carbon mask is applied, it’s time for the Q-Switched laser.

A good Q-Switched laser such as the M22 is the essential device required for this treatment. It is an ND: Yag laser which has wavelength of 1064nm**. This wavelength has a high absorption level in melanin and other dark pigment. Hence, the laser energy will be absorbed mostly in the carbon mask and create the glowing effect we’re looking for.

What does the laser carbon peel do to your skin?

The laser heats up your skin, but does not destroy, sub-dermal tissue. This mode of action kick-starts natural healing processes to boost collagen production for lasting firmness. Secondary treatment benefit includes plumping fine lines – win, win! At the surface, the laser energy destroys carbon particles in the mud mask and eliminates the absorbed oil, dead skin, and toxins along with it. This immediately refreshes and exfoliates the skin by deep cleaning pores and shrinking size in the process. Without the weight of dull, dead skin cells, users can walk away with more radiant skin that is even and soft to the touch.

Who can benefit from a carbon laser peel treatment?

The carbon laser peel treatment is especially effective for anyone with oily skin who suffers from continual acne, blackheads, enlarged pores, or dull and uneven skin tone. Targeted laser energy gently heats the skin and kills acne-causing bacteria in the process. This is achieved without the need for any harsh chemicals or aggravating ingredients. This laser process also shrinks sebaceous glands to reduce oil production and help balance chronically oily skin.

Gentle exfoliation and toxin-pulling benefits are essential for everyone and the carbon laser peel is safe for all skin types. 

How long does this treatment take?

The carbon peel treatment takes just 20 minutes and is nicknamed the dream ‘lunchtime facial’. That is because you can walk out with a radiant glow and experience little to no side-effects or downtime. 

What are the immediate benefits of the carbon peel treatment?

  • Immediately tightened skin
  • Softened skin
  • Brightened skin
  • Cleansed pores 

The natural carbon cleanses pores and the cutting-edge laser technology blasts the excess oil, dead skin, and contaminates away.
