Also known as charcoal facial, charcoal peel or carbon peel, it is a very gentle
non-invasive laser procedure with zero down time using activated charcoal to
improve the radiance of the skin. The carbon is virtually blasted off the skin
from the perfectly fired laser. Dead skin cells, makeup residue, clogged pores,
oil and blackheads are removed, leaving the skin radiant and glowing.
How does it work?
The process is meant to exfoliate the skin, reducing pore size, evening out
skin tone as well as making the skin softer and appear more radiant. It also
removes dead skin cells, blackheads and oil. Carbon facial, as the name indicates, involves applying a thin layer of carbon
gel over the face. The carbon particles penetrate deep into the pores, and
bind to the sebum and dirt present there. A Q-switched Nd:YAG laser, which is highly attracted to the carbon particles
is then used to blast away the carbon particles. During this process, the sebum and dirt bound to the carbon particles gets
removed along with the carbon. There also occurs some exfoliation of the
superficial cells revealing a cleaner and smoother skin.
