A carbon laser peel is an exfoliating and resurfacing treatment that utilizes activated carbon powder and advanced Q-switch XLase lasers to treat various skin conditions. Also known as the Hollywood Peel or Carbon Laser Facial, this treatment provides the benefits of four peels in one treatment with minimal to no downtime. It exfoliates the skin deeply, surpassing the effects of a regular peel, and is completely non-invasive. It promises collagen remodeling and is effective for addressing anti-aging, pigmentation, redness, rosacea, acne, dehydrated and dull skin, oily skin, blackheads, and enlarged pores.
Carbon Laser Peels address common concerns associated with aging skin, such as increased pigmentation, uneven texture (including acne scarring), and wrinkles. The laser energy works in two ways: first, it targets melanin (pigmentation) in the cells, breaking it up for natural removal; second, it heats the deep dermis, causing skin contraction and stimulating collagen production.
The benefits of a Carbon Laser Peel include:
Before the treatment, an in-depth consultation is conducted to create a personalized treatment plan based on the patient’s needs, skin assessment, and medical history. The treatment begins with the application of liquid carbon to the skin, which penetrates deep into the pores. Laser light is highly attracted to carbon particles, and as the laser passes over the skin, it destroys the carbon along with dead skin cells, contaminants, and oil. The laser then removes the carbon, taking with it any clogged pores and leaving the skin clear, bright, and toned. Multiple passes are usually required for optimal results. The entire procedure takes approximately 30 minutes.
A single Carbon Laser Peel treatment has the skin-brightening effect of four chemical peels. It safely removes the top layer of skin, eliminating imperfections, and stimulates collagen production for long-lasting youthful skin. Monthly treatments are recommended for maintenance of a bright, glowy complexion.
The Carbon Laser Peel is effective for skin resurfacing, skin rejuvenation, reducing enlarged pores, and treating acne with seborrhea.
The Hollywood Laser Peel, performed through the Spectra Laser Treatment, is FDA-cleared for treating melasma. It is also suitable for treating epidermal and dermal pigmented lesions, as well as age spots, freckles, solar lentigos, café-au-lait lesions, chloasma, acne, and liver spots. Melasma treatment typically requires several treatments, and noticeable improvements can be seen after 6-8 treatments.
