The carbon laser peel, in particular, 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.
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. This painless, 20-minute procedure delivers immediate benefits with lasting results.
Carbon paste is a wonderful product designed to exfoliate the skin. A layer of liquid carbon is applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores. Laser light is highly attracted to the carbon particles. When the laser is passed over the area it destroys the carbon, taking dead skin cells, contaminants and oil with it.
Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and contaminants from deep within the pores. When the laser is passed over the treatment area it targets and destroys the carbon particles, taking any adsorbed material with it.
As the carbon is targeted by the laser, it blasts away dead skin cells, blackheads and effectively exfoliates the skin. The result is softer radiant skin with reduced pore size and a more even skin tone.
Carbon peels also target the deep layers of the skin to simulate collagen production, which in turn produces firmer, plumper skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles leaving the skin feeling tighter and glowing.
Acne and Oil Destroying:
The heat produced by carbon peels has two additional benefits. It reduces the P.Acnes bacteria responsible for acne, allowing for better management of pimples and outbreaks. It also works on the sebaceous glands (oil producing glands) this results in less oil production and therefore reduces congestion building up in the pores.
Treatments can be performed on any part of the body, including the back and chest.
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. When using 1064nm laser wavelength it highly minimises chances of pigmentation change as it interacts less with epidermal melanin.
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.
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.
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.
Immediately tightened skin
The natural carbon cleanses pores and the cutting-edge laser technology blasts the excess oil, dead skin, and contaminates away.
With all laser treatments a patch test is required 7 days before your treatment. If you are on any medication or using any skin products please bring this with you to your patch test. We cannot treat skin that has had sun exposure or fake tan applied for 4-6 weeks pre-treatment.
