Carbon laser peel
Carbon laser peel, also known as carbon facial, Hollywood peel, China doll facial, is a very popular and unique laser skin rejuvenation treatment which is inspired by its Asian background. This treatment is suitable for both men and women. It aims at reducing pigmentation, open pores, age spots, acne, wrinkles and improves the complexion, tone, texture, and brightness of the skin.
Q. How is Carbon facial done?
Before doing a carbon facial a thin layer of carbon paste is applied on the face and allowed to dry for 15 minutes. In this time, the carbon particles settle in the pores and absorb , dirt, dust , sebum, dead epidermal cells, and the acne causing bacteria. These carbon particles are then blasted using Q switched Nd:YAG laser, taking with them all the absorbed contaminants. This reaction generates some heat which stimulates the dermal cells to produce more collagen thereby tightening the skin and reducing the open pores.
Q. Is the carbon facial painful?
No! The sensations like repeated snaps of a rubber band and is easily borne without any anesthetic. However, if one is very sensitive we can apply numbing cream for 30 minutes before the procedure to minimize discomfort.
Q. Is there any downtime associated with carbon facial?
Carbon facial is an absolutely safe procedure with no downtime at all. One can return to work immediately post procedure. There may be mild redness which usually fades away within minutes to 24 hours varying from patient to patient. Many times, at SKinhealers, we perform it as a party facial a day or even few hours before a social function.
