With celebs being its fans, this treatment has become a favorite for those seeking a fast, effective way to revitalize their skin. It's no wonder this trend is gaining momentum; when top stars are flaunting flawless skin, you know there's something special about it.

But what exactly is a carbon laser facial? How does it work? Let's explore everything you need to know about this popular treatment.


What’s a Carbon Laser Facial?

A carbon laser facial is a non-invasive skincare treatment that uses a combination of carbon-based lotion and laser technology to cleanse, exfoliate, and rejuvenate the skin. It's also known as a Carbon peel or Hollywood peel, due to its popularity amongst celebrities.

Here’s how it works,

It’s a two-step procedure. It all starts with a layer of liquid carbon applied to your face, allowing it to dry. This carbon lotion acts like a magnet, absorbing oil, dirt, and dead skin cells from your pores. 

Next, we’ll pass a laser across the surface of your skin to target the carbon. This laser light attracts the carbon particles, and causes a mini explosion! Don’t be shocked! Your skin will not burst! These are very tiny explosions just enough to blast away the carbon and all the dirt that it has collected. This action provides a deep exfoliation effect, unclogging pores and removing dead skin cells. 

The heat from the laser also stimulates collagen and boosts new cell production. The best part? Your skin looks smoother, your pores are smaller, and your face is brighter—giving it a complete reset!

Who is it suitable for?

Laser Carbon Facials can treat:

  • Acne
  • Pigmentation/ Dark Spots
  • Signs of premature aging
  • Dull complexion, tone, and texture
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Blackheads and whiteheads
  • Enlarged and clogged pores


Is Carbon Peel more beneficial than the Chemical Peel?

Although chemical peels can treat the above-mentioned skin conditions, laser carbon facials are beneficial for the reasons below,

  • Laser Carbon Peels, use only heat in the procedure
  • Chemical peels require downtime for the skin to recover from swelling and redness while laser carbon peels don’t require any downtime
  • Carbon peels are kinder to people with sensitive skin causing mild redness that goes away within a few hours after the treatment, than chemical peels.


What are the benefits of Laser Carbon Facials?

  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles

If your skin has all those fine lines and wrinkles, carbon laser facials can smooth things out like an eraser for those little creases that pop up over time. The laser's energy helps to stimulate the deeper layers of your skin, helps to break down old skin cells, and promotes regeneration thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles

  • Treats Pigmentation and gives an even tone

This deep cleansing process helps reduce dark spots and hyperpigmentation, promoting an even skin tone. Additionally, carbon facials can minimize pores and control oil production, resulting in a smoother, more balanced appearance. Regular sessions can lead to smoother, healthier-looking skin with a balanced tone.

  • Collagen Booster

Collagen is like the scaffolding of your skin. It keeps everything tight, firm, and bouncy. But as you age, the scaffolding can get a bit wobbly. The laser stimulates collagen production, reinforcing your skin’s structure. Your skin becomes firmer, more resilient, and less prone to sagging.

  • Instantly Visible Results

After the first session itself, you can experience visible results - your skin will look brighter and radiant. The carbon cream and laser combo work to remove all that gunk and dead skin cells, revealing the radiant skin underneath. Your skin gets a fresh new start. 

  • No Downtime

One of the best things about carbon laser facials is that they're quick and relatively painless. You don't have to block out your entire day or prepare for major downtime. You’ll be in and out fast with your skin that feels refreshed and rejuvenated. Now that's what we call efficient pampering!

  • Safe on all Skin Types

These facials play nice to everyone. No matter your skin type or tone, this treatment is generally safe and effective. If you’ve got sensitive skin, you can still get carbon laser treatment without stressing about side effects.

  • Bye Bye Dull Skin

Dull skin? Not after this treatment. When the laser hits the carbon, it explodes in tiny blasts that remove the dead skin cells with it, promoting radiant skin. Also, the laser zaps away the bacteria causing breakouts and reduces the appearance of acne scars.

How To Look After The Skin Post-Treatment?

Post the procedure, here are some do’s and don’ts to consider.

What to do?

  • Moisturize. Keep your skin hydrated by using a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer. This helps to soothe the skin and maintain its elasticity.
  • Big yes to Sunscreen. Apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Protecting your skin after laser treatments is necessary to prevent hyperpigmentation and other damage.
  • Stay Hydrated. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated from the inside out.
  • Stay Cool. Avoid hot showers, hot tubs, and hot saunas, as they may irritate your skin after the treatment.

What not to do?

  • No Sunbathing. Minimize sun exposure for at least a week after treatment.
  • No Exfoliation. Refrain from using abrasive scrubs, exfoliants, or any other invasive skin treatments for at least a week. The skin might be sensitive, and scrubbing can irritate.
  • Avoid Heavy Makeup. Allow your skin to breathe, so avoid makeup for at least a day or two.
  • Hands Off. It’s tempting, but still, don’t touch your face excessively as it may create irritation and a risk of infection.


Addressing Common Concerns

1. How long does the treatment take?
You can easily fix an appointment even after your workday! That’s because the entire treatment, including the consultation, application, and procedure takes only a maximum of 45 minutes! 

2. Is it painful?
No! It is a gentle, painless, and non-invasive treatment, with no painful side effects. Some people might slightly feel a mild stinging sensation or slight redness during the treatment, which immediately settles down post-treatment. 

3. How long do the results last?
You can see your skin glowing, radiant, and reduced acne and pore size, just after the first session. You can also experience a more smoother and softer skin than before the treatment. A course of 4 to 5 sessions, spaced 1 to 4 weeks apart can give you progressive long-term results.

4. Can it be combined with other skin treatments?
Yes. Carbon Laser treatments can be combined with microdermabrasion, LED light therapy, hydrating masks, and active ingredient ampules.
