Home Dermatology Aesthetic Services Carbon Laser Facial



A diamond is pure carbon after all!

CLF (carbon laser facial) known also as Hollywood Peel or Carbon Spectra Peel is a fairly gentle laser skin treatment that uses activated carbon powder and spectra lasers to quickly and painlessly exfoliate, cleanse, clear and tighten pores, brighten and even-out skin tone and activate a deeply rejuvenating skin reaction that produces a smoother, plumper and more radiant skin! Carbon laser facial is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne on the face or body. The treatment is so gentle on the skin since no harsh formulas or abrasive scrubbing tools are involved so no adverse chemical reactions or a lengthy recovery time

What to expect during the application?

Upon arrival on your appointment your doctor will start by cleansing the skin with bespoke professional products then a Carbon paste is applied to your face which penetrates deep into the pores. As the carbon dries, it is attached to dirt, oil and dead skin cells on the surface of the skin, at that point it becomes ready to meet the laser. Afterwards a high intensity pulses of laser light are delivered at a safe yet effective energy level destroying clogged in the pores and dead skin cells.  The reaction causes a mini explosion that pushes the energy, in the form of heat, deep into the layers of the skin where elastin and collagen are activated and cells begin producing a new. Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, as the explosion occurs the carbon is vaporized along with any dirt, oil or dead skin cells.

How do you prepare?

For the five days prior to the treatment we advise you to avoid using Retinoids, such as Retin-A, Vitamin C, Glycolic acids, and any type of strong cream that could interfere with your treatment on your treatment areas. We advise you also to avoid getting skin treatments at least two weeks prior to your session; these includes microdermabrasion and any type of professional or home exfoliation, Botox, Fillers, etc. Also, if you are taking antibiotics, make sure you have taken your last dose at least 7 days prior to your Carbon laser treatment.

How long does a Carbon Laser Facial treatment take?

The entire treatment, including a consultation, the application of the carbon paste and the laser procedure takes approximately 45 minutes.

Post treatment instructions

Immediately after the treatment you could experience some mild redness -which is quite normal- but you will also see results in your glowing, radiant skin and reduced acne and pore size. Where possible we advise to leave the skin to breath until the next morning. Before bed you can clean the skin with cotton pads and warm water to remove any of the day’s dirt then apply your prescribed night cream. Similar to other facials treatments it is advised that you use a sun protection cream after treatment during the day with a minimum SPF30. Avoiding hot water and swimming are also important post treatment.

How many treatments are required?

You’ll begin to see powerful results after only one session. However, a course of four to five sessions, spaced two to four weeks apart can give great results for improved collagen production, reduced oiliness and tighter, more radiant skin.
