    What Is Carbon Laser Treatment

    A carbon laser treatment, also referred to as a carbon peel, is a painless laser treatment that has very little downtime and resurfaces the skin.

    It gives an instant refreshed look that makes the skin feel firmer, smoother, and softer.

    ​ A liquid carbon layer is applied to the area being treated, which penetrates deeply into your pores. Because laser light has a high attraction to particles of carbon, when it is passed over the treated area, it works to destroy the carbon, which takes oil, dead skin, and contaminates along with it. It also promotes the stimulation of collagen.

    The Process of A Carbon Laser Treatment

    A carbon laser treatment uses a light beam that is scattered or pulsed at a very high rate, ensuring there is minimal heat damage. A local anaesthetic can be used to relieve any discomfort the patient may feel.

    A carbon cream is then applied to the skin in a thin layer and allowed to dry for about 15 minutes.  A laser light is then passed over the area, where it is absorbed by the carbon, focusing the lasers energy on the epidermal layer of the skin.

    As the laser is moved across the cream the carbon paste is vacuumed up gently, gently exfoliating the skin while removing any debris in the pores. The thermal effect of the treatment also stimulates the renewal of collagen.

    Immediately after your treatment, an ointment is applied with a bandage. You will be shown how to properly protect and clean your newly revealed skin, with healing taking up to 2 weeks. During the healing process there may be some tenderness and swelling.

    Benefits of A Carbon Laser Treatment

    A carbon laser treatment brings many benefits. It’s cleansing due to the ability of the carbon to absorb contaminants and oil from deep within your pores.

    The carbon laser treatment also beneficial to those who have acne because it destroys the oil buildup, reduces the bacteria, P. Acnes, that is responsible for acne, and shrinks oil producing glands. This all works to reduce congestion in pores and helps better manage outbreaks.
