The Carbon Laser treatment is a laser procedure for enhancing the skin’s radiance and promoting a smooth, glowing complexion.
The Carbon Laser Peel treatment helps to reduce imperfections like enlarged pores that originate from the outer skin layer (Stratum Corneum).
A carbon lotion is applied to the skin and allowed to dry over a period of 15 minutes. Then, a Q Switch Nd YAG laser is used to heat and cause an implosion of the carbon particles that lead to cause the following effects on the treated skin:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Tighten dilated pores
- Reduce acne, scars and post acne discoloration
- Remove dead skin cells from the superficial epidermal layer
- Stimulate collagen growth
- Improves skin texture
- Restores skin integrity and radiance
- Clears pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads
No, the treatment is comfortable and only a minor sensation similar to pins and needles is felt.
Between 4 – 7 treatments, usually 1 – 2 weeks apart.
The actual number of treatment would depend on the severity of the skin condition, skin type and lifestyle.
To help maintain the effect, treatments may be continued every 4 to 6 weeks.

After treatment your skin will be cleansed and a moisturising treatment applied. It is advisable to apply plenty of moisturizer and sun block to soothe the skin and stay away from excessive sun exposure during the recovery period.
Make up can be applied after treatment; aesthetic products (for acne, hyperpigmentations, wrinkles etc.) can be applied the following day. There is no restriction of daily activities after the treatment.
The skin is often slightly pink immediately after treatment, but this subsides after a few hours, and make up and sunscreen may be applied immediately following treatment.
In rare cases, some patients may experience itching or swelling for a few days,scab formation, bruises, infection and temporary hypo or hyper-pigmentation.
The skin will appear healthier, radiant and clearer after few treatments, often noticeable after first treatment. Results are improved if sun exposure, smoking and stress are kept to a minimum.
The results may last for months to a year or two; however, the longevity of any effects is determined by the skin condition, skin type and lifestyle.
