Name of Treatment
A Carbon Laser Facial is a new non-invasive aesthetic and pain-free laser treatment that is highly effective for treating skin imperfections. This 3-part treatment resurfaces your face taking years off of your appearance. It provides skin rejuvenation with outstanding results. If you want that porcelain doll look without pain or downtime, then the Carbon Laser Facial, also nicknamed ‘Black Doll’ works beautifully.
What Makes This Treatment Unique?
This specialist facial revitalizes the complexion by applying medical grade carbon to the skin, then treating with the nano-second lightning fast Q switched Nd Yag Laser to stimulate and clean the pores, and promote skin regeneration.
Carbon Laser Facials are the equivalent of having FOUR chemical peels in one session. The outer most layer of the epidermis is safely removed with no downtime, or any complications like ablative alternatives such as Fraxel type lasers. They produce dramatic results, at a fraction of the cost compared to other treatments. This is because the carbon powder used in the process has a strong absorption ability, it can absorb dirt deep in the pores it also has the effect of reducing the inflammation associated with acne.
Who Loves It?
Popular in Asia, this gentle laser treatment that helps reduce minor imperfections on the skin, like enlarged pores, pigmentation, poor skin tone and assists to reduce the signs of ageing has been made famous by Asian Celebrities like Taiwanese celebrity 大S Barbie Hsu.
Ready, Steady, Go…
Carbon powder is applied to the skin and allowed to penetrate into pores. The powder is then removed by means of the laser’s energy transmission. This breaks the carbon into pieces, breakdown dirt and oil in the epidermis. This procedure stimulates skin cell and collagen fibre renewal and elastic fibre repair using the skin’s natural repair function. The result is a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, reduced pore size, smoother skin and improved skin elasticity.
When performing the laser treatment, a layer of carbon paste is applied on the entire face and allowed to dry. Then, a q-switched laser is used to heat and cause an implosion of the carbon particles. The laser light is absorbed by the carbon paste focusing the laser energy on the epidermis. As the laser moves across the skin the carbon paste is gently vacuumed up, exfoliating the skin and removing any debris in pores. The treatment minimizes pore sizes and the thermal effect of the laser beam stimulates collagen renewal. The treatment is comfortable and only a minor sensation similar to pins and needles is felt.
Carbon Laser Facial has been described at feeling warm or prickly, but not painful, and assists in leaving the skin looking clear and glowing. A minor ‘sonic’ boom is heard as the laser targets the carbon particles and the light energy is absorbed by the carbon particles.
