Laser Carbon Peel
A Carbon Facial is a revolutionary, non-invasive and painless procedure that helps rejuvenate the appearance of ageing and damaged skin by exfoliating the skin four times deeper than a peel.
How does Laser energy work?
Redness, stinging, burning - patch test is needed 48 hours prior to treatment
Signs of ageing
Mild acne scarring
Marks & blemishes
Before your treatment you will have a consultation and a patch test 48 hours before your treatment to ensure your skin is safe to be treated.
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. You’ll feel a slight tingle or pinch but the treatment will not be painful.
The Carbon Peel is a completely safe skin treatment, with no reports of major skin complications or painful side effects. Post-treatment, you may notice some slight redness, and experience some tingling, but this will both subside post-treatment.
No downtime is required, and you will be able to resume daily activities straight away.
How will my face look straight after the treatment?
Though you may experience some slight redness, this will clear up within a few hours 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.
