What is Laser Carbon Facial?

A Carbon Laser Peel (also known as a Carbon Laser Facial) is a superficial skin resurfacing treatment that helps to diminish imperfections, tighten pores and eliminate impurities on the face such as blackheads whilst simultaneously plumping and tightening the skin.

Despite the name, a carbon laser peel isn’t a traditional chemical peel – instead it uses a carbon solution and laser technology to create a peeling effect.

It is a non-invasive and painless carbon-based treatment, highly effective for creating a clear, bright, and firm complexion instantly with zero downtime.

How does it work & what does it involve?

The laser carbon facial is a two-stage process.

Before the treatment begins the skin will be double cleansed.

A layer of carbon paste is then applied to the skin – this penetrates deep into the pores.

As the carbon dries, it attaches itself to dirt, oil or dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.

After 10 Minutes the carbon paste will have dried and is ready to be lasered.

The laser will be passed over the carbon paste. The light from the laser is highly attracted to the carbon particles. The carbon absorbs the light energy, binds to the epidermis and causes it to fragment the carbon into tiny particles. A smoke evaporator attached to the laser will remove the carbon as well as the debris and impurities it contains.

As the laser makes contact with the carbon, there will be a loud audible ‘crack’. Although loud, this is nothing to worry about, this is just the sound of the laser vaporising the carbon.

As the heat from the laser is pulsed deep into the skin, the skin’s natural healing mechanisms are activated in the deeper layers.

Cellular turnover is stimulated, and fibroblasts are ignited to begin regenerating collagen and elastin.

Over the following few weeks the regenerative results will continue.

For longer term change in the tone, firmness and radiance of the skin, multiple treatments are recommended.

What are the benefits?

  • Reduces signs of premature aging
  • Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores
  • Improves skin radiance
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Stimulates collagen for plumper skin
  • Reduces oily and congested skin
  • Reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation
  • Cleanses and rejuvenates the skin

Does it hurt?

During the procedure you may experience slight tingling and warmth on the skin however this is not painful.

Are there any side effects?

The Carbon Facial is extremely safe – you can resume your daily routine immediately after the treatment.

Side effects are minimal, you may experience some slight redness and tingling although this will clear up within a few hours and can be soothed with aloe vera gel.

We recommend keeping the skin clean and dry while it is red, but once this has cleared up, makeup can be worn.

Try to avoid oily makeup as this will clog pores; natural mineral foundations are always better.

We always avoid treating areas with hair however temporary hair removal can occur.

Results can be enhanced further with minimal sun exposure, reduction in stress and the absence of smoking.

We recommend using SPF 50 to protect the face for at least 4 weeks following treatment, as failure to do so could result in hyper-pigmentation.

When will I see results?

The entire treatment takes approximately 45 Minutes.

Immediately after treatment you will see brighter, glowing skin and tighter pores.

The results will continue to improve over the following few weeks.

For special events such as Weddings, we recommended that treatments are completed a month pre-event to allow for the regenerative benefits of the skin to emerge.

Treatment will only be carried out following a thorough consultation with our Laser specialists who will ensure this treatment is appropriate for you. This allows side effects to be discussed in detail before treatment is commenced.
