Carbon Laser Facial is a non-invasive, painless procedure that can be performed on the face and body.
It is useful in the treatment of the following:
Poor skin texture
Fine lines and wrinkles
Acne scars and post acne discolouration
It is also an excellent way to exfoliate and refresh the skin, whilst leaving the skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer.
What does it involve?
The treatment involves having a layer of carbon applied to the skin. This carbon then penetrates deep into the pores. Laser light is passed over the skin; this is attracted to the carbon particles and destroys them taking dead skin cells, contaminants and oil with it.
What effects does this have on the skin?
Cleanses – the carbon absorbs oil and other contaminants from within the pores so when the laser light is used the oil and contaminants are removed with it.
Exfoliates – dead skin cells are blasted away with the carbon, reducing the likelihood of blackheads and clogged pores.
Rejuvenates – during the treatment the deeper layers of the skin are targeted stimulating collagen productions, helping to firm and plump the skin. This helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and makes the skin feel tighter.
Acne & oil destroying – the heat produced by the treatment reduces the P. Acnes bacteria, which helps to control outbreaks and pimples. Shrinks sebaceous glands, reducing the oil production that normally accumulates in the pores to increase congestion.
Does it hurt?
No, the treatment is completely painless.
How long is recovery time?
None, this treatment has no downtime
How many treatments do I need?
Often, noticeable results can be seen after just one treatment but for maximum long-term effects, regular treatments are recommended. Initially, a course of treatment may be advised to control symptoms followed by future treatments at intervals, as suggested by your practitioner, to maintain the results. A good cosmeceutical skin care regime will also increase and maintain results.
