Step 1: First, the skin is cleansed to remove all traces of dirt, oil and makeup. It is better to come for the session without any makeup or tinted creams as this may reduce the effect.
Step 2: Then, a thin layer of liquid carbon is applied to the area and left for 10-15 mins so that the skin absorbs it. At our clinic, we use only FDA-approved liquid carbon and not the store-bought one. The quality of the carbon significantly affects the quality of treatment.
Step 3: Once the carbon has penetrated the pores, it is ready to be activated. At our clinic, the laser machine we use is Spectra XT Q Switched Nd YAG. Spectra is FDA approved and in fact, originally invented for the Carbon Peel. A completely pain-free process, you might feel a bit of warmth and heat on the area when the carbon is activated.
Step 4: After the carbon has been activated it is removed with the same laser at different settings. There will be loud snapping noises as the laser vaporizes the carbon particles. This sound may initially be a little alarming but rest assured this is perfectly normal, safe and painless!
Step 5: After the carbon has been removed, the skin is once again gently cleansed and if required a soothing cream is applied.
Carbon laser facial treatment is a wonderful treatment; it is painless, has no downtime and gives quick results.
By the next day, you can expect to see an improvement in your skin tone and texture, which can last for many weeks.
If done in the proper manner by a trained technician or doctor, Carbon Laser Peel is one of the most satisfying treatments for that instant party glow!
We use FDA-approved Spectra XT laser with Q-Switched Nd:YAG technology.
