Less invasive skin resurfacing procedures are increasingly popular for rejuvenating the skin. These treatments are usually quick, cost-efficient, and require minimal to zero downtime. Depending on your beauty goals, there are a variety of laser therapy and peels to pick from.
Nonetheless, carbon laser peels are gaining popularity nowadays. A carbon laser peel is a popular treatment for mild-to-moderate skin problems. Acne, large pores, greasy skin, and blotchy skin texture can all be treated with a carbon laser peel, a superficial therapy. Carbon laser facials are another name for them.
Despite its name, a carbon laser peel isn’t the same as a regular chemical peel. Instead, your cosmetic doctor creates a peeling look with a carbon mixture and lasers. There’s very little downtime because the lasers don’t go too far into the skin. The therapy takes approximately 30 minutes, and you can immediately resume your normal activities.
What Is A Carbon Peel And How Does It Work?
There are 2 phases to a carbon Peel. The carbon solution is applied to your dermis over the 1st stage. Your skin is then exposed to a 1060nm wavelength laser, which generates regulated thermal injury to assist recovery. To revitalize your skin and address wrinkles and fine lines, this induces elastin, collagen, and fibroblast synthesis and remodeling. Furthermore, the heat causes pore contraction and remodeling, making it a great cure for patients who have enlarged pores. If used to cure acne, this high-energy procedure focuses on the membrane of the acne and kills it, eliminating inflammation and acne.
The fast pulse Q-switched laser is used to remove the carbon lotion in the second stage of the therapy. By dissolving the carbon and eliminating the dead skin cells, pollutants, and oils connected to it, this laser dissolves the carbon into small particulates and absorbs them. During the second stage, the skin obtains a deep exfoliation, making it four times more powerful than any peel on the marketplace and leaving it noticeably brighter and finer in color and texture.
The entire process took around thirty minutes, and the results were instantly evident. The skin will immediately lighten, and it’ll feel finer and smoother than it has before.
Recovery time is minimal to zero. However, at least 1 week after the peel, you should only utilize non-abrasive or invasive skin treatments. We also suggest utilizing products made to fight oily skin.
It is usual to have dry or flaky skin for some days, so we advise moisturizing daily.
How Long It Lasts
The longevity of a carbon laser peel results relies on your lifestyle, skin condition, skin type. Most individuals see results after a single treatment, while some want a monthly session.
Remember that each carbon laser facial result is produced upon the previous one. The ideal way to keep maintaining and making improvements is by committing. Having 3-5 treatments for 2-3 months and then getting a booster every six months is ideal for maintaining the desired results.
Why Should I Choose A Carbon Peel Over A Chemical Peel?
Considering that Carbon Peels have a carbon mask that extracts our skin’s flaws, chemical peels often utilize acidic chemical mixtures to permeate your skin and exfoliate your top skin layers. Nevertheless, to get the exact effects of the Carbon Peel, chemical peels need greater concentrations of different acids, leading to downtime as your skin heals from redness and swelling.
The Carbon Peel also suits sensitive skin better because of the treatment procedure and its effects on our skin. The carbon laser renews your skin through the heat the laser procedure generated, whereas chemical peels achieve identical results through a chemical reaction. People prone to eczema and breakouts would also see the Carbon Peel gentler to the skin.
