This is an innovative gentle laser treatment that uses focused light beam to treat skin imperfections. It’s also known as the China Doll Peel as it gives a porcelain doll like finish to the skin. This treatment is popular with celebrities for glowing skin on the red carpet!
A thin layer of carbon cream is applied to the skin, this acts as a photo-enhancer. Once the carbon cream has been applied properly, the entire area is then treated with the laser. The light is absorbed by the carbon removing the dirt, oil and dead skin cells from the epidermal layer, causing contraction of enlarged pores. This deeply exfoliates the skin and also helps stimulate collagen production.
Laser carbon peels can refresh and improve the look of skin, and they’re best for people with oily skin, enlarged pores, and acne. This treatment is suitable for all skin types and is particularly effective on darker skin types resulting in a brighter, smoother complexion.
