CARBON LASER FACIAL
A carbon laser peel, also known as a Q-switched Nd:YAG laser treatment or carbon facial, is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that can help improve the appearance of the skin in several ways. Here's everything you need to know about it:
- Carbon laser peel is a two-step process that involves applying a carbon lotion to the face followed by laser treatment.
- The carbon lotion penetrates the skin's pores, and the laser is used to target and vaporize the carbon particles.
- Exfoliation: It exfoliates the top layer of dead skin cells, leaving the skin smoother and brighter.
- Acne Reduction: The treatment can help reduce acne by shrinking sebaceous glands and killing acne-causing bacteria.
- Pore Size Reduction: It can minimize the appearance of enlarged pores.
- Collagen Stimulation: Stimulates collagen production, which can improve skin elasticity and reduce fine lines.
- Skin Tone and Texture Improvement: Evens out skin tone and texture, reducing the appearance of scars and pigmentation.
- The carbon lotion is applied to the face and left to dry for about 10-15 minutes.
- The laser is then used to heat and vaporize the carbon particles, exfoliating the skin and stimulating collagen production.
- Patients might experience a mild tingling or warm sensation during the procedure.
Recovery and Downtime:
- Carbon laser peel is relatively gentle, with minimal downtime.
- Some redness may occur
- Patients can typically resume regular activities immediately after the procedure.
Number of Sessions:
- The number of sessions needed depends on the individual's skin concerns, but a series of treatments is usually recommended for optimal results.
- Patients should protect their skin from direct sunlight and use sunscreen regularly.
- Avoid using harsh skincare products for a few days after the treatment.
- Patients may notice an immediate improvement in skin texture and tone.
- Long-term benefits, such as reduced fine lines and improved acne, become more apparent with multiple sessions.
- Carbon laser peel is generally safe for most skin types, but a consultation is recommended to determine suitability.
