WHAT IS A CARBON LASER PEEL?

The carbon peel laser is an exfoliating and resurfacing treatment. It uses activated carbon powder and advanced Q-switch XLase lasers to treat many conditions. Carbon Laser Peels are also popularly known as the Hollywood Peel, the Carbon Laser Facial gives you 4 peels in 1, helping you refresh and revitalize your skin with minimal to no downtime.


It can exfoliate the skin four times deeper than a peel, but it is completely non-invasive.


Promising “collagen remodeling”, it is known to help to even skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and pigmentation. In general, it is great for anti-aging, pigmentation, redness, rosacea, acne, and dehydrated and dull skin. It is also particularly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, and enlarged pores because it blasts these issues out of the skin.

WHAT CAN A CARBON LASER PEEL DO?

As we age subtle changes occur to our skin, including increased pigmentation, uneven texture (sometimes caused by acne scarring) and wrinkles, Carbon Laser Peels can help to address all of these concerns. The laser energy works in two ways: first, it gently targets the melanin (pigmentation) in the cells breaking it up for your body’s natural removal processes. Then it heats deep in the dermis causing the skin to contract and stimulate collagen.

HOW DOES THE CARBON LASER PEEL WORK?

Expect Dramatic Results With the Spectra Hollywood Laser Peel! A Carbon Laser Peel is the application of specialized laser energy to reduce visible skin pigmentation, improve skin tone and more. A Carbon Laser Peels not only improves uneven pigment but can also reduce the appearance of textural irregularities and fine lines.


The laser energy works in two ways, first, it gently targets the melanin (pigmentation) in the cells breaking it up for your body’s natural removal processes, and second, it heats deep in the dermis causing the skin to contract and stimulate collagen. Because the treatment is gentle, multiple passes are needed to obtain optimal results.


Laser energy lightly removes Spectra Lotion, heating the dermis and lightly ablating the top layer of dead skin. The laser energy breaks up pigment, which is then carried away by your body, and heats the skin causing the skin to contract while at the same time stimulating the building of collagen.

HOW IS THIS TREATMENT PERFORMED?

Before your treatment, you’ll have an in-depth consultation to help create a personalized treatment plan for you. This is based on your VISIA results and an assessment of the treatment area, as well as your medical history. Client safety and care are of the utmost importance to all of us, and therefore this will ensure your happiness and well-being, and that you receive the results you deserve.


The Hollywood Peel laser treatment starts with a layer of liquid carbon that will be applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores. Laser light is highly attracted to carbon particles. When the laser is passed over the area, it destroys the carbon, taking dead skin cells, contaminants and oil with it.


Then, the laser removes the carbon. With it comes dead skin cells and anything that was clogging the pores, leaving your skin clear, bright and toned. It is comfortable and there is truly no downtime. A quick, easy solution to many of your skin concerns. This laser also works great for the treatment of melasma. Since the treatment is incredibly gentle to your skin, it usually requires multiple passes over the skin surface during the procedure. The treatment time is approximately 30 minutes.
