What is a carbon laser facial?
The Carbon laser facial peel is an exfoliating and resurfacing treatment. It uses activated carbon powder and advanced Q-switch lasers to treat many conditions.
Carbon Laser Peel is also popularly known as the Hollywood Peel, the Carbon Laser Facial gives you 4 peels in 1, helping you refresh and revitalise your skin with minimal to no downtime.
What does a carbon laser facial do?
It can exfoliate the skin four times deeper than a peel, but it is completely non-invasive.
Promising “collagen remodelling”, it is known to help to even skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine line, scars and pigmentation. In general, it is great for anti-ageing, pigmentation, redness, rosacea, acne, dehydrated and dull skin. It is also particularly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, and enlarged pores because it blasts these issues out of the skin.
The laser energy works in two ways: first, it gently targets the melanin (pigmentation) in the cells breaking it up for your body’s natural removal processes. Then it heats deep in the dermis causing the skin to contract and stimulate collagen.
How Do I Look After My Skin After The Treatment?
Though you may experience some slight redness, this will clear up within a few hours to a few days, and can be soothed with some aloe vera gel. We recommend keeping the skin clean and dry while it’s red, but once this has cleared up, makeup can be worn. Try to avoid oily makeup, however, as this will clog your pores again. Natural mineral foundations are always a good idea.
Results can be enhanced with minimal sun exposure, a reduction in stress and the absence of smoking. We recommend using SPF 50 sun cream to protect the area for at least 1 month following on from treatment, as failure to do so could result in hyperpigmentation.
Keep the area as clean as possible and let it heal naturally. Do not pick the areas as scarring may occur.
