How does it work?
The Carbon Laser Peel is a combination of laser technology and a medical carbon mixture. The laser penetrates deep into the skin introducing thermal energy into the deeper layers which stimulates the synthesis of fresh collagen, resulting in a radiant complexion. Furthermore, multiple tiny explosions of carbon particles release heat on the outer layer of the skin which helps to exfoliate it. This process also strengthens the structure of the skin, while enlarged pores are cleared which—together with the thermal energy applied—can help minimize their size over time.
How can it make my skin more radiant?
Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and other contaminants deep within the pores. As the laser passes over the target areas, it destroys the carbon particles, taking any absorbed materials with it. This performs a skin deep cleansing action. It is also through this action that the laser blasts away dead skin cells and blackheads, effectively exfoliating the skin. This results in a softer, radiant, and an even skin tone.
How can it address my acne problems or oily skin?
The heat produced during the treatment also provides an anti-acne action. It reduces the presence of the P. Acnes bacteria which is responsible for acne, enabling better management of pimples and outbreaks. This also shrinks the oil producing glands which means less oil production that can lead to congestion in the pores.
Is the treatment painful?
A Carbon Laser Peel does not hurt, although you may feel a slight tingling sensation and warmth on the skin, which is normal as the laser zaps the thin layers of carbon on the surface.
Is it safe?
Studies and personal experience can support the safety profile of this treatment. Side effects are minimal and highly controllable, and can be minimized further when it is done by a trained and experienced doctor.
How long is the downtime for this treatment?
The procedure is non-invasive so you can return to your usual activities right after the session. You just have to ensure that you use the recommended sunscreen for any outdoor activities.
How many treatments do I need?
A course of treatments is recommended depending on your skin concerns and desired outcome. A personal consultation is necessary so the doctor can properly assess your problem and map out an appropriate course of action. Patients usually need more than one session to achieve their desired results.
It is recommended to space out treatments between 2-3 weeks to allow the regeneration of collagen and elastin. Touch-up treatments are recommended 1-3 months after the initial course. For optimum results, 6-12 treatments may be needed.
How long does it take to see results?
The Carbon Laser Peel delivers results even after a single treatment. However, you may improve or maintain these results through touch-up sessions.
How long will my results last?
While the results of laser treatments are considered long-lasting, they are not permanent. Patients can help maintain their new appearance by carefully following the aftercare instructions. More importantly, one should avoid prolonged sun exposure.
What are the potential side effects of this treatment?
Side effects are minimal for this procedure as evidenced by a slight redness and tingling a few hours after the treatment. Temporary hair loss over the treated area may occur.
Are there any special instructions after treatment?
- Avoid using any active skin care products for 24-48 hours after treatment.
- Avoid heat or excessive sweating for 48 hours after the treatment.
- If you are in between treatments, it is important that you protect the area with sunscreen with an SPF of 30+.
