What is Carbon Laser Facial?
Sometimes called Carbon Skin Rejuvenation, Carbon Skin Peel or Black Doll Facial.  It is a non-invasive facial treatment combining laser technology and activated carbon.

The “Laser Facial” treatment described is a two-stage process which:

  • Freshens the complexion by removing the outer layers of dead skin cells from the client’s face
  • Gradually reduces the skin’s pore size and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

Often Blackheads and Whiteheads are removed by this technique

There is no downtime for the client who can return to normal activities immediately after the treatment

Carbon paste is applied to the surface of the skin.  The outer dead cells of the Epidermis will absorb the carbon, but deeper living cells of the skin will not absorb the paste

  • Using a special tip, the 1064nm wavelength of the laser will be absorbed by the Carbon which is vaporised by the Q-switched pulse along with the dead epithelial cells
  • The lining of open pores also reacts with the Carbon and often blackheads/ whiteheads are removed

The treatment has the immediate effect of a gentle laser peel.  It can be carried out as a single treatment if the client is attending a special event, but client will see increased benefits with a course of treatments.
