Sometimes, you just need a quick refresher from the hassle of daily life. Being stressed all the while and commuting to and from your chores and workloads takes a toll on your skin.
A great pick-me-up for your skin is getting a facial treatment. Nothing too intense, a quick procedure that takes just a slice out of your precious time. If this sounds like what you are looking for, Carbon Laser Peel is perfect for you.
Carbon Laser Peel is innovative and revolutionary and despite being one of the newest entrants on the market, it gives you immediate results! There is no downtime needed and you can opt-in for a quick rejuvenating treatment right before that special event you want to look stunning and radiant at.

Not a treatment, carbon laser peel is used in combination with laser rejuvenation sessions. For the treatment, a thin layer of micronised carbon cream is applied to the skin. This layer forms a mask that penetrates the pores of the skin.
Once the mask is applied properly, a laser device is used to target the carbon that has penetrated the skin. The mask is dark in color, and lasers are attracted to darker pigment. The laser destroys these particles when it comes in contact with them.
Alongside the laser particles, dead skin, excess oil and impurities are also removed, thereby leaving you with smoother, younger-looking and radiant skin.
Skin that is rejuvenated through this mechanism is also cleaned and exfoliated, which makes it firmer and brighter. Another thing that patients ultimately observe is smoothened lines and wrinkles, thanks to the increased activity of fibroblasts, collagen and elastin.
Any part of the body which has cosmetic issues, such as uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne can be targeted with carbon laser peels. Most people desire to target the face, neck, hands, back, and décolletage.
When you undergo a treatment session, you can hope to see:
Performing carbon laser peel process requires using a medical grade Class 4 laser. We use the Pastelle Q-Switched Nd: YAG Laser, which has been demonstrated to be extremely reliable in the treatment of pigmented lesions.
It can generate high-output energy at very short intervals, which makes the experience comfortable. The Pastelle Q-Switch technology also makes sure that the risk of injury to surrounding tissues is lower and the healing time is faster. Additionally, it reduces the risks of uneven pigmentation after treatment.
Unlike other kinds of laser treatments, carbon laser peel is something that yields immediate results, as well as results that optimize over time. There is no downtime, and often, patients can see that their skin is brighter and lighter right after the first treatment.
You may, however, experience some side-effects such as redness and tingling. These clear up on their own within a few hours and is nothing to worry about. Sometimes surrounding hair bleaches a bit or is temporarily removed.
However, to seriously target skin areas and cosmetic issues, it might be necessary to customize the treatment based on individual requirements. Most patients require between 6-8 sessions spaced 2 -4 weeks apart to yield results.
To maintain the results you have obtained, you might also desire to undergo follow-up treatments every 3-4 months.
Laser treatments have one basic skincare rule: avoid direct sunlight. The same applies to Carbon Laser Peels. You should wear SPF daily and contact your therapist the moment you sense complications.
You must also ensure that you moisturize your skin and remain well-hydrated during and after the procedure. This makes sure that your skin recovers fast without problems.
