CARBON LASER FACIAL

Carbon laser facial, is a revolutionary laser treatment with minimal to zero downtime. It is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin and acne. It is also an excellent way to exfoliate and refresh your skin, providing an instant refreshed appearance and leaving the skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer.

A thin layer of liquid carbon is applied to your skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores for up to 15 minutes. The carbon is then lasered off, area by area, destroying the carbon, taking dead skin cells and oil with it. The heat that is created in the Epidermis and the Dermis, causes the skin to react like it has been injured, blood and collagen rush to this area, to repair it leaving the skin with a  smoother appearance. There is no pain to this treatment at all.

The benefits of the treatment include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles are reduced.

  • Improves skin's texture.

  • Removes dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin.

  • Reduces acne, scars and post acne discolouration.

  • Clears pores to reduce blackheads and whiteheads.

  • Tightens pores.

  • Stimulates collagen growth.

Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and impurities from deep within the pores of the skin. As the carbon is targeted by the laser, it blasts away dead skin cells, blackheads and effectively exfoliates the skin. The result is softer, radiant skin with reduced pore size and a more even skin tone.

It also targets the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which in turn produces firmer, plumper skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and leaves the skin feeling tighter and glowing.

The heat produced by carbon facials has two additional benefits, it reduces the bacteria responsible for acne, allowing for better management of spots and outbreaks and it shrinks sebaceous glands (oil producing glands), resulting in less oil production, therefore reducing congestion building up in the pores. Great for clients with oily skin!!

 

After any facial, you should combine a good skin care routine and a daily use of sunscreen. Results can be seen after one treatment, but for maximum long term results, we recommend 2-4 treatments, 6 weeks apart.

Frequently asked questions

Is it safe?


Yes, provided you are treated by a fully qualified technician. Always check your technicians qualifications and that they are using a Medical Certified Machine.




Can anyone be treated?


You must be over the age of 18 and provided you meet our criteria and your medical history has been checked.




Does the treatment hurt?


There is no pain with carbon laser facials. During the treatment you may experience slight tingling and warmth on the skin, which is normal while the laser zaps away the thin layer of carbon.




What can i expect after the treatment?


There is no downtime with this facial, with results often showing after just one treatment. You will feel slight sensitivity for the first 3 days after your treatment and possible dryness or minor flaking from day 4-5. Over the next 2 weeks the skin will continue to get smoother and brighter. We will apply aloe vera after the treatment to your face and some sunscreen. You will be required to protect yourself for at least the next week to two weeks with sunscreen, to prevent damage to the new skin.




Is there anything i need to do before treatment?


You should protect the area you are having treated from sunlight, before and after your treatment. This will all be explained at your consultation. It is your responsibility to fully follow our pre care and aftercare. You will be asked at the consultation about your medical history and any medication you may be taking, as some medications can be a contraindication to this treatment.




Can i Sunbath / Sunbeds & Fake Tan?


You should avoid sunbathing, sunbeds and any kind of spray tanning or fake tan 30 days prior and 30 days after your treatment. This is to ensure you get the best possible treatment and this treatment is melanin sensitive, so we ask you to do this to avoid any hypo or hyper pigmentation. All of our advice MUST be followed exactly.




How many treatments will i need?


You can just have the treatment as a one off treatment. We recommend a course of 2-4 sessions 6 weeks apart for best results.

It takes roughly 45 mins. Each client is different and it depends on the size of the area being treated.
