The latest Beauty Trend: Carbon Peel Laser Facial
The Carbon Peel Laser is a non-invasive and painless treatment for skin rejuvenation that is taking over the beauty world thanks to its lack of side-effects and zero recovery time.
The whole session takes around 20 minutes, which makes it an extremely popular choice for celebrities and those who just want a quick treatment on their lunch break. One of the first markets for this type of treatment was in Asia, with Asian celebrities enjoying its many benefits. For this reason, it is also popularly called China Doll Peel.
The latest state-of-the-art laser, mixed with carbon serum, quickly found its way further west. Providing an instantly refreshed appearance with a softer and smoother skin, Hollywood celebrities were quick to embrace it, giving it an additional nickname, Hollywood Peel.
How does the Carbon Peel Laser Facial work?
The process differs from other laser treatments due to its “two stages” approach. First stage consists of applying medical-grade carbon serum. This natural carbon cream is applied to your skin and penetrates deep into the pores. This lotion looks like mud mask and quickly absorbs oil, dead skin cells and pulls toxins to the surface.
When the mask dries off, it is time for stage two which involves the Q-switched ND Yag laser. Carbon particles attract the laser light and create an even surface for the laser. The carbon serum maximises the laser’s capability for destruction of any debris clogged in the pores and upper layers of the skin. When the laser passes over a certain area, it destroys the carbon mask along with dead skin cells, toxins and oil.
In addition, the Carob Peel laser has a wavelength of 1064nm. Unlike other lasers that deliver a single wavelength, the Q-switched laser uses short bursts. This is important, as the wavelength has high absorption level in melanin and other dark pigment. As a result, the laser energy will be absorbed mostly in the carbon mask and create the much desired glowing effect. This unique laser property makes it suitable to treat sun spots, freckles, birthmarks and other pigment-related conditions.
The whole two stage process stimulates collagen production, which helps the skin look firmer and youthful. It reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves elasticity and gives bright and radiant complexion.
The China Doll Peel is appropriate for all ages and skin types. It is beneficial to people with oily skin, acne and pigmentation problems. But there are some requirements needed prior to the treatment. You should have no tan and avoid sun exposure. This maximises the effect of carbon serum and Q-switched laser. Your clinician will give additional specific instructions if needed. After the treatment, you should avoid excessive sweating as to allow your skin to properly heal and produce collagen. It is recommended avoiding physical activity the same day.
The treatment results
Since the Carbon Laser Facial takes only 20 minutes, it is a perfect skin fix for the weekend or the week after. The carbon serum gives the skin a smoother, more natural and glowing appearance. The Carbon Peel laser facial effectively kills the bacteria that cause acne and balance oil production in the skin. The treatment is painless and patients reported only a slight sting on the skin. In most cases, there are no side effects to this treatment. However, some patients may have mild redness or itching, which goes away after few hours.
The results of the Carbon Peel Laser are instant, but unfortunately not permanent. This means you will have to do more treatments in order to get better and long lasting results. It is best done on a regular basis, with two to four weeks between the treatments to allow skin time to produce collagen and generate new skin cells. Doing Hollywood Peel once or twice a year will ensure that your skin stays rejuvenated at all times.
