What is a Carbon Peel?
It involves applying a layer of liquid carbon over the face, which penetrates deep into the pores. A laser blasts the carbon away, with the light highly attracted to carbon particles. The carbon absorbs contaminants, and when the laser destroys the carbon it gets rid of these too. The laser removes dead skin cells, blackheads and oil. The process exfoliates the skin, reducing pore size, evening out skin tone as well as making the skin softer and appear more radiant.
This Carbon Laser Peel treatment stimulates the production of collagen, this form of laser peel favors the reduction of expression lines, reduces spots caused by the sun, scars caused by acne, and obstructed open pores. This procedure can be performed while the acne bacteria are still active.
The device used to perform this procedure is called Q-Switched, it is a type of ND: Yag laser with 1064nm wavelength. This length allows a high level of melanin absorption among other cases of hyperpigmentation. Therefore, laser energy is mostly absorbed in the carbon mask creating a lifting and radiant effect on the skin.
