Carbon peel laser treatments are a very quick and pain-free procedure aimed at improving the appearance of your skin, and it is usually applied to oily skin, acne prone areas as well as for skin with enlarged or easily-clogged pores.
Laser carbon peels are a method of deeply exfoliating skin. They also have the added benefit of stimulating natural collagen production, which is useful for reducing the visibility of wrinkles.
The procedure typically takes around 30 minutes and requires a number of different steps. The first step involves rubbing liquid carbon which will absorb oils, contaminants and dead skin cells. When the liquid carbon has dried on the skin, an Nd:YAG laser is used on low setting to bind the carbon to the skin. A higher setting is then used to fragment the liquid carbon. Hydrating moisturizer is then applied to the skin to soothe and moisturize it.
There may be a slight reddening of the skin and maybe a slight tingling sensation, which will usually subside with 3-4 hours. There will be some post procedure care activities, which will be explained by the doctor.
