Carbon laser skin treatment, also known as carbon laser peel or Hollywood peel, is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that involves the use of a laser to target and exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin, removing dead skin cells, impurities, and excess oil.
The procedure uses a special carbon solution that is applied to the skin, which is then heated with a laser to help activate the carbon and remove the impurities from the skin. The carbon particles absorb the laser energy, which causes them to heat up and vaporize, taking with them any debris, bacteria, or dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.
This process also stimulates the production of collagen, which helps to improve the texture and firmness of the skin. Carbon laser skin treatment is used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including acne, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The procedure is generally safe and effective, with minimal downtime and few side effects. However, it is important to consult with a licensed and experienced practitioner to determine if it is the right treatment for your skin type and concerns.
Cleansing: The skin is first thoroughly cleaned and prepped for the treatment.
Application of carbon solution: A layer of carbon solution is then applied to the skin, which penetrates deep into the pores and adheres to any impurities and dead skin cells.
Laser treatment: A laser is then used to heat and vaporize the carbon particles, which help to remove the impurities from the skin's surface. The laser also stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve the skin's texture and firmness.
Removal of carbon: Once the laser treatment is complete, the carbon particles are removed from the skin using a gentle cleansing process.
Post-treatment care: After the procedure, a moisturizer and sunscreen are applied to the skin to protect and soothe it. Patients are advised to avoid direct sunlight and excessive heat for a few days after the treatment.
The entire process typically takes about 30 minutes, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. The results of carbon laser skin treatment are typically visible immediately, and the skin will continue to improve over time as collagen production increases.
