How does carbon laser facial work?

Stage 1 – carbon nano-particles applied

The procedure takes about 45 minutes starting with the therapist attaching eye protectors to you. A face mask of activated charcoal or carbon powder is prepared and delicately applied to your face. Once applied, it will look like you are wearing a mud mask!

Stage 2 – shattering dirt & epidermal keratinocytes

The laser passes over your skin on the Spectra setting emitting pulses which heat thin layers of collagen and skin tissue. The carbon absorbs heat then transfers the heat so it penetrates deep into your skin.

Laser energy works to break up any pigment, which is carried away by your body naturally. It also helps to stimulate the build-up of collagen which minimizes fine lines.

Stage 3 – stimulating the skin cells regeneration

The laser then goes over your skin in the Q-switch mode lightly exfoliating your skin. You will hear a soft snapping noise as the carbon is blasted off the skin. You may feel a light tingling. This superficial peeling removes excessive sebum, exfoliates the upper layer of skin and unclogs pores.

Stage 4 – new collagen and elastin production

The final pass is made over your face to ensure all the carbon is removed. The frequency of the laser is increased again to ensure all the carbon has been vaporized.

Carbon facial aftercare

To fully benefit from your facial leave your skin to breath overnight. This allows products to absorb and protect your skin. Before bed clean your skin gently with water before applying your usual cream.  Always use SPF 50 or above.
