A carbon facial is a revolutionary laser treatment that is completely painless with minimal to no down time. It is the perfect pre night out treatment to get your skin glowing because this treatment has a multitude of different benefits from being suitable for acne prone skins to helping firm and brighten the skin.
Most people think of laser facial to be a harsh and very ablative treatment for the skin, this is mainly due to the amount of Co2 laser facials becoming increasingly popular on social media platforms such as Instagram! Rest assured this laser facial is the complete opposite! Unlike the name would suggest this laser peel will just leave you with an incredible glow rather than peeling or in any pain, as all of the exfoliation happens during the treatment.
After cleansing the skin, a layer of liquid carbon is applied to the skin in the form of a mask and allowed to dry for up to 20 minutes. During this time the carbon penetrates deep into the pores and become infused with dead skin cells, dirt and other debris on the skin. A medical grade laser is passed over the area, it destroys the carbon, taking dead skin cells, contaminants and oil with it.
Due the combination of exfoliation and heat this treatment is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne on the face or body. It is also a brilliant way to refresh your skin, leaving skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer.
The heat produced by the laser during the carbon facial has two additional benefits other than stimulating your fibroblast cells (the cells which trigger collagen synthesis). It reduces the P. Acnes bacteria responsible for acne, allowing for better management of pimples and outbreaks, and it also shrinks sebaceous glands, resulting in less oil production, and therefore reducing congestion building up in the pores.
Treatments can be performed on the body, including the back and chest.
