The Revolutionary Skin Treatment

Carbon Laser Facials are exfoliating and resurfacing treatments that use the dual components of activated carbon powder and advanced Q-switch lasers. It’s a two-stage process that begins with a layer of liquid-activated carbon powder applied to the skin, penetrating deep into the pores. The laser light is highly attracted to the carbon particles, and when the laser is passed over the area, it destroys the carbon, taking dead skin cells, contaminants, and oil with it.

Why It’s Known as the Hollywood Peel

The treatment, popularly known as the Hollywood Peel, has gained its reputation due to its popularity among celebrities and Hollywood personalities. You don’t have to be an A-Lister to experience fantastic skin at Derma Revive Skin Clinic. 

We’ve seen the carbon laser facial quickly become a go-to skin treatment for those looking for affordable and effective ways to make their skin look radiant for special events or as part of their regular skincare regime.

The Carbon Laser Facial is ideal for:

  • Removing excessive oil & sebum
  • Refining and minimising enlarged pores
  • Helping pigment & hyperpigmentation damage
  • Lessening the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles
  • Reducing live acne & post-acne scars

How Does a Carbon Laser Facial Work?

The Carbon Laser Facial is a unique treatment that combines the power of activated carbon and advanced laser technology to deliver impressive skin rejuvenation results.

The Two-Stage Carbon Laser Facial Process

The Carbon Laser Facial involves a two-stage process. First, a layer of liquid carbon is applied to the skin, penetrating deep into the pores. The carbon acts as a photo enhancer, providing a high-intensity absorption spectrum for the laser light.

The light is highly attracted to carbon particles. When the laser is passed over the area, it destroys the carbon, removing dead skin, contaminants, and oil with it. This process exfoliates the skin, reduces pore size, and evens out any uneven skin tone, leaving the skin smoother.

The Role of Activated Carbon and Laser

Activated carbon plays the mail role in carbon peels. It has a strong ability to absorb dirt and oil from deep within the pores. When combined with laser technology, it cleanses and exfoliates the skin and stimulates collagen production in the dermis, leading to firmer, plumper skin.

The laser energy works in two ways: it targets the melanin (pigmentation) in the cells, breaking it up for your body’s natural removal processes, and it heats deep in the dermis causing the skin to contract and stimulate collagen.

Benefits of Carbon Laser Facial

The Carbon Laser Facial is more than just a beauty treatment. It offers many benefits that contribute to healthier, more radiant and glowing skin.

Deep Exfoliation and Skin Resurfacing Treatment

One of the key benefits of the Carbon Laser Facial is its ability to exfoliate the skin four times deeper than a traditional peel but in a completely non-invasive way.

This deep exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, revealing a fresher, more youthful layer of skin underneath. It also aids in skin resurfacing, smoothing out uneven textures and reducing the appearance of acne scars and pigmentation.

Treatment for Various Skin Conditions

The Carbon Laser Facial is a versatile treatment that can address various skin conditions. It’s great for anti-ageing, pigmentation, redness, rosacea, acne, dehydrated and dull skin. It’s particularly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, and large pores, as it effectively targets these issues.

Collagen Remodelling and Skin Firming

The Carbon Laser Facial is a revolutionary laser treatment known for its collagen remodelling properties. The heat from the laser stimulates collagen production deep in the dermis, leading to firmer, plumper skin. This helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in radiant skin.

What to Expect During a Carbon Laser Facial Procedure

The Carbon Laser Facial is a straightforward procedure that requires minimal downtime. Here’s what you can expect during the treatment.

Pre-Treatment Consultation

Before your treatment at Derma Revive Skin Clinic, you’ll have an in-depth consultation to create a personalised treatment plan. We will ask you about previous facial treatments you have had and ask some medical history-related questions.

Our priority is client safety and care, ensuring your happiness, well-being, and the results you deserve.

The Treatment Process

During the treatment, a layer of liquified carbon is applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores. Then, differentiating carbon laser peel itself from chemical peels, the extra step of a laser is added to the mix.

The light from the laser is highly attracted to carbon particles. When the laser is passed over the area, it destroys the carbon, taking dead cells, contaminants, and oil with it. The process may produce a slight zapping sound, but you will feel nothing more than a tingle or a little pinch.

Post-Treatment Care

Post-treatment, you may notice some slight redness and experience some tingling, but these will subside shortly after the treatment. No downtime is required, and you will be able to resume daily activities straight away.

To soothe the skin and enhance the results, we recommend keeping it clean and dry while it’s red, avoiding oily makeup (natural mineral foundations are advised), and using SPF 50 sun cream to protect the area for at least 1 month after the treatment.

Treating the skin gently is the key to getting the most out of the peel. Aloe vera gel may be applied post-treatment. Minimal sun exposure is advised. Please bear in mind that this is an exfoliating and resurfacing treatment, so slight redness should be accounted for.

Results of Carbon peel treatment

The Carbon Laser Facial is known for delivering noticeable skin texture and appearance improvements. Here’s what you can expect from the carbon facial treatment.

Immediate and Long-Term Results

The unique procedure cleanses, exfoliates, and rejuvenates the skin by removing dirt and skin cells. Immediately after the treatment, you’ll notice your skin feeling smoother and looking more radiant.

The carbon peel also targets the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which in turn produces firmer, plumper skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves skin feeling tighter and glowing.

Recommended Number of Treatments

The number of Carbon Facial sessions needed depends on the size of the treatment area and the desired effect. Usually, we recommend a course of 2-6 treatments every 2-3 weeks for the best in beautiful, long-lasting results.
