The Carbon laser facial peel is an exfoliating and resurfacing treatment. It uses activated carbon powder and advanced ND YAG Q-switch lasers to treat many conditions.
Gentle on your skin and suitable for all ages, it will leave you and your skin smoother, plumper and refreshed.
The Carbon laser facial is suitable for most skin types and it is ideal for removing excessive oil & sebum, reducing live acne & post acne scars and discolouration, stimulates collagen growth, refining and minimising enlarged pores, reduce blackheads and whiteheads, helping pigment & hyperpigmentation damage, lessening the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles & crow feet & skin texture.
The laser blasts microscopic holes into your skin which helps promote collagen growth and killing any live bacteria which can improve acne. For acne scarring we would recommend stronger treatments.
Spectra Laser Peel is a safe treatment that is performed on thousands of men and women each year. It is recommended that you consult your practitioner regarding any concerns that you may have.
The treatment takes around 30 minutes with effects noticeable immediately. You’ll notice brighter skin and it will feel smoother and softer then it has done in a long time.
You can speak to the clinic to discuss your requirements, but most people can benefit from this treatment. This includes men and women and different skin types. It is a good ‘pick-me-up’ treatment for the party season.
You may experience some redness due to the laser heat but this usually settles down after few hours.
The Carbon facial is a fairly gentle treatment. No harsh formulas or abrasive scrubbing tools are involved. So no adverse chemical reactions or a lengthy recovery time. Also, unlike other peels, there is no flaking or bleeding.
Once cell regeneration is started, to keep improving the skin, the best way would be to commit to a series of treatments. Three to five treatments over two to three months with a top-up treatments twice a year would give you the best results.
If you want to see long term improvements we would recommend 6 to 10 sessions of carbon laser facial. For milder issues 3 to 5 sessions can be sufficient.
Yes you can apply make up straight after although we would recommend you wait for a couple of hours to ensure the make up does not irritate the skin.
The carbon particles penetrate the pores, exploding as they absorb the laser energy. Collagen production is stimulated, causing shrinking of the inner walls of the pores.
The light exfoliation effect is immediate and as soon as the treatment is over your skin should feel clean with pores cleared. There should be no peeling as experienced with other chemical peels and treatments.
Laser treatments are generally more effective. They can also tackle more serious skin conditions from sun damage to brown spots or scarring. Skin texture can also benefit from the use of laser, which can tighten and smooth skin.
To fully benefit from your facial leave your skin to breath overnight. This allows products to absorb and protect your skin. Before bed clean your the skin gently using cotton and warm water before applying your usual cream. Always use SPF of 30 or above.
