Carbon Laser Facial Before and After

Most facial treatments that promise to correct acne, oily skin, fine lines, and dull complexion are too harsh for sensitive skin. Good thing there is now carbon laser facials.

Black facial laser peel gives outstanding and long-lasting results without the burn and sting associated with harsher treatment options. Most of our patients experience the following benefits right after a carbon laser facial procedure:

What Is A Carbon Laser Facial?

A non-invasive and safe laser skin treatment, a carbon laser facial (CLF) makes use of the conductive qualities of carbon to provide a variety of benefits quickly and painlessly.

A very popular treatment that is often called the Hollywood Peel or Hollywood Laser Peel, carbon laser treatment rejuvenates layers of the skin, targets debris in the pores, and stimulates collagen production, giving those who aim for radiant skin tone the long-lasting results they’ve always wanted. Compared to chemical peels, this procedure has less downtime and less risk of redness and irritation.

How does laser carbon peel work?

Unlike most laser light procedures that rely on light energy to correct skin imperfections, carbon laser peel or what some might call the China doll laser facial works two ways. First, it uses a natural carbon mineral that is applied like a mask. It is then allowed to dry so that it can penetrate the outermost layer of the skin.

This liquid carbon mask naturally soaks in oil, dirt, dead skin cells, blackheads, and whiteheads from deep within the pores. Then it will pull out the toxins. You will then see the carbon paste destroying all the captured skin impurities as it gets sucked out by the laser machine. The laser works in synergy with the liquid carbon mask to create a gentle but deep penetrating action to remove all skin impurities.

Get the Best Skin Tone with Carbon Laser Peel

It’s amazing to watch the carbon laser peel procedure in action. First comes the application of a black mask. Next comes the use of laser light to evaporate the liquid carbon mask. As the black mask comes in contact with the laser energy, the carbon particles disappear together with all the skin impurities it bonded. 

This process is so gentle yet so deep-cleansing. As the surface dirt and oil get sucked out by the carbon, the skin gets the detox it needs. This mode of action starts off the healing and repair process. This leads to natural collagen production as the skin is freed up from all toxins. Without the weight of dead skin cells, blackheads, whiteheads, excess sebum, and dirt- the skin can finally breathe. This detoxification process evens skin tone, giving you radiant skin in no time.

Carbon Laser Facial - Best for Oily and Combination Skin

Hollywood’s favorite facial – the carbon laser facial is especially effective for people with problematic skin. If you are suffering from acne, acne scars, large pores, blackheads, whiteheads, and uneven skin tone, then you’ll benefit from the skin rejuvenating powers of the black carbon laser facials.

This gentle procedure is great for people with acne because it is gentle enough even for irritated skin. Not only does this procedure kill acne-causing germs, but it also purges the skin of toxins. Then the laser energy shrinks the oil glands. This results in reduced oil production and evening out of wrinkles increasing skin tone.

Carbon laser peel might be famous for oily skin but this procedure is safe for all skin types. It is fast and safe enough that you can walk in at Tiam Spa during your lunch break and come out looking refreshed within 30 minutes. If you have acne on your face, back, nape, or chest, then a carbon laser facial might work well for you.

Who Is It For?

For skin with excessive oil & sebum

Those who have enlarged pores and suffer from excessive oil can benefit from carbon peel treatment. This is because the carbon absorbs oil, dirt, and dead skin cells from the pores.

For skin with pigment & hyperpigmentation damage

Those who need delicate a skin care treatment due to pigmentation damage need not worry about this treatment. This procedure involves a deep layer of rejuvenation that results in more radiant skin with less risk of hyper or hypo-pigmentation, especially for people with darker skin types.

For skin with acne and acne scars

By reducing congestion from oily skin and dead skin cells, this treatment also reduces acne and shrinks its scars. However, if the scars are severe, it may take several treatments before you can see full results.

Who Benefits from Carbon Laser Facial

People who desire the following would benefit from a carbon laser facial:

How It Works

We start with a layer of liquid carbon on your face or wherever else you want this treatment. The applied carbon will then deeply penetrate your pores and bond with unwanted particles such as oil, dirt, and dead skin cells on the surface of the epidermis.

We will then pass the laser over the skin in a low-energy setting. At the surface, the laser energy then destroys the carbon particles, reducing the risk of pimples and leaving a radiant-looking face.

As dryness is common after such treatments, hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen will also be applied to the skin after treatment.

Most people do not feel any discomfort or pain from the laser. The sensation they feel is more like a mild tingling and a very slight pinch.

After Care

There is little to no time needed for recovery. However, after the peel treatment, it’s important to use only non-abrasive or invasive skin treatments for at least one week. We also recommend using products designed to combat oily skin.

It’s normal to experience flaky or dry skin for a few days, which is why we also recommend moisturizing daily. Consult with our experts to ensure that any skin care regimen you use on the face is safe for aftercare.

How Long It Lasts

The longevity of the results of a carbon laser facial depends on the condition of your skin, skin type, and lifestyle. Most people see results after one treatment, while others enjoy a monthly session.

Note that the results from each carbon laser facial builds upon the previous one. The best way to keep making and maintaining improvement is to commit to a series. Having three to five treatments over a period of two to three months and then scheduling a booster treatment every six months is best to maintain the desired results.
