Carbon Laser Facial-The Latest Celebrity Facial
What Is A Carbon Facial?
A CARBON laser facial is a type of treatment for the face and claims to leave skin softer, firmer and smoother.
It is a non-invasive procedure and is sometimes called the charcoal facial or charcoal peel.
It is completely painless with minimal-to-zero downtime.
It is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne on the face or body. It is also an excellent way to exfoliate and refresh your skin, providing an instant refreshed appearance and leaving skin feeling softer, smoother and firmer.
It involves applying a layer of liquid carbon over the face, which penetrates deep into the pores.
A laser blasts the carbon away, with the light highly attracted to carbon particles.
It’s claimed the carbon absorbs contaminants, and when the laser destroys the carbon it gets rid of these too.
The laser is also said to remove dead skin cells, blackheads and oil.
The laser is said to penetrate deep into the skin
The process is meant to exfoliate the skin, supposedly reducing pore size, evening out skin tone as well as making the skin softer and appear more radiant.
The facial is said to be particularly beneficial for people with oily skin, as it is reduces acne-causing bacteria and shrinks sebaceous, or oil, glands.
What are the benefits of the charcoal peel rejuvenation?
According to the C&S Cosmetic surgery and laser clinic, which offers the treatment, there are many benefits,which are:
Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and contaminants from deep within the pores. When the laser is passed over the treatment area it targets and destroys the carbon particles, taking any absorbed material with it.
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.
Carbon peels also target the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which in turn produces firmer, plumper skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves skin feeling tighter and glowing.
Acne and Oil Destroying
The heat produced by carbon peels has 2 additional benefits. It reduces the P.Acnes bacteria responsible for acne, allowing for better management of pimples and outbreaks, and it also shrinks sebaceous glands (oil producing glands), resulting in less oil production, and therefore reducing congestion building up in the pores. Treatments can be performed on any part of the body, including the back and chest.
Thus the treatment
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Lighten age spots and dark spots
- Fade freckles
- Tightens dilated pores
- Reduces acne, scars and post acne discoloration
- Removes dead skin cells from the superficial epidermal layer
- Stimulates collagen growth and lift and tighten the skin
- Improves skin texture
- Clears pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads
As with all skin treatments, carbon peels should be supplemented by a good skin-care routine, and daily use of a high-spectrum sunscreen.
Noticeable results can be experienced after a single treatment, but for maximum long-term results we recommend regular treatments.
