Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation

What is Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation

This form of Skin Rejuvenation reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, acne scarring, black & white heads and can make a significant difference to the overall look of your skin.

How It Works

 

Firstly, your skin is cleansed and the area to be treated is prepared (hair is covered, eyes are protected and so on).

A thin layer of carbon paste applied to the skin and allowed to penetrate for approx 10 -15 min *“Dead” epithelial cell surfaces absorb carbon and the paste also adheres to the lining of open pores.

Then, a Q Switch Nd YAG laser is used to heat and cause an implosion of the carbon particles (the carbon mask is removed as the laser passes over each area) , which leads to the following effects on the treated skin:

  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tighten dilated pores
  • Reduce acne, scars and post acne discoloration
  • Remove dead skin cells from the superficial epidermal layer
  • Stimulate collagen growth
  • Restore skin integrity and radiance
  • Improves skin texture
  • Clears pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads

The treatment is comfortable and only a minor sensation similar to pins and needles is felt. You will feel some mild warmth as the laser passes over each area of skin; as the carbon paste is removed the heat also stimulates collagen re-growth, which in time can result in dramatic improvements to scarring and wrinkles.

Once the carbon paste has been removed (ablated) by the laser, we cleanse the skin using non- perfumed, alcohol free cleansing wipes. After the skin has been carefully dried, we then apply a moisturising lotion. Within minutes, you can re-apply make-up and will notice visible effects of your treatment.

Should any initial flushing or mild redness occur post-treatment, this will fade away within hours and the full effect of the treatment are generally noted the following day.

That is it – an incredibly simple procedure which utilises some incredibly hi-tech science to deliver what you want …Better Looking Skin.
