What is a carbon laser facial?
A CARBON laser facial is a non-invasive procedure sometimes called the charcoal facial or charcoal peel.
It involves applying a layer of liquid carbon over the face, which penetrates deep into the pores. A laser beam is used to blast the carbon away, with the light highly attracted to carbon particles. The carbon absorbs impurities, and when the laser destroys the carbon it gets rid of these too, leaving the skin deeply cleansed and smoother. The laser peel also removes dead skin cells, blackheads and oil.
The process is exfoliating, reduces pore size, evens out skin tone as well as making the skin softer and appear more radiant.
This facial is particularly beneficial for people with oily skin, as it is may help to reduce acne-causing bacteria and shrinks sebaceous, or oil, glands.
What are the benefits of the charcoal peel rejuvenation?
The carbon peel laser may help lighten age spots and dark spots, fade freckles, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, shrink pores, and remove blackheads and acne.
It can also lift and tighten the skin, improve elasticity, moisturise and give a bright and radiant complexion.
As the laser penetrates the deep layers of the skin, it stimulates collagen production, resulting in firmer, more youthful looking skin.
The Carbon Laser Peel may help to:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Tighten dilated pores
- Reduce acne, scars and post acne discoloration
- Remove dead skin cells from the superficial epidermal layer
- Stimulate collagen growth
- Improve skin texture
- Clear pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads
