The carbon laser facial is a two-step, instant glow, non-invasive treatment for clear and rejuvenated skin.

What to Expect
Laser carbon peels require no recovery time. It involves a multi-part process that usually takes approximately 30-45 minutes from start to finish. Patients are usually expected to undergo 3-5 treatments over a duration of 2-3 months with a booster carbon laser facial treatment every six months.
Your specialist will spread a layer of liquid carbon onto your face. The carbon absorbs oil, dirt, and dead skin cells from deep within the pores.
You’ll wait for about 10 minutes for the liquid carbon to dry.
After the carbon has dried, your doctor will give you eye shields to protect your eyes from the laser. Your doctor will pass a laser, such as the Nd:YAG, over the skin on a low-energy setting. This heats up the carbon, binding it to the epidermis.
If you have very sensitive skin or dark patches like melasma, your doctor may recommend skipping the heating step. The laser also heats up subdermal tissue, boosting collagen and plumping up fine lines. On a higher-energy setting, the laser will be used to fragment the liquid carbon into tiny particles.
Your specialist may also apply a hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen to your skin after treatment.
