Carbon laser facials are one of the newest cutting-edge treatments to create instant glowing, dewy skin with minimal-to-zero downtime. They are getting quite a bit of attention in the media and you may hear them referred to as the “Hollywood Facial” or the “China Doll”. But you don’t need to leave Milwaukee to try out this hot trend. All skin types can benefit from a carbon facial including rosacea and acne patients or those with enlarged pores, blackheads and oily skin. Immediately following the treatment your skin will feel smoother and softer from the instant exfoliation the carbon laser facial provides.
The Carbon Laser Facial Process
Our carbon facial takes 10 minutes to perform, but you will want to account for a 45 minute appointment for your first treatment as there will be some paperwork as well as a consultation explaining the process. To begin your face will be first cleansed of any skin care products or make-up you may be wearing.
Following cleansing a light layer of liquid carbon is applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores. The carbon requires a few minutes to sit and bind to the impurities. Using our state-of-the-art Picosure laser, this device identifies and removes the carbon particles and with them the gunk (dead skin cells, oil, blackheads) the carbon has bound to.
The actual removal feels like a mild warming sensation. No trace of the carbon will remain on your skin when you leave. While your skin may be flushed initially, most people look like they just came back from a relaxing day spa. After a carbon laser facial you can immediately resume your daily activities.
When Should I Get a Carbon Laser Facial?
Do you have an event in the next few days and want to look brighter with smoother, glowing skin? The carbon facial is ideal for giving the surface of your skin an instant refresh without any downtime. It is also ideal as a monthly treatment to help with skin cell turnover, minimizing pores and keeping skin healthy.
What Does the Carbon Laser Facial Do?
Removes carbon particles that have bound to oil and other contaminants within the pores. Pores won’t disappear but they will be less pronounced!
Dead skin cells are also blasted off the surface of the skin with the carbon particles. You can feel the immediate change in the softness of the skin.
Our Picosure laser provides a pressure wave with the delivery of the laser energy that reaches past the surface of the skin to the dermis. This aids in collagen production. Repeated treatment will result in firmer, tighter skin with less fine lines.
The heat of the laser helps decrease colonies of acne and the primary bacteria associated with acne breakouts. It also shrinks the glands that produce oil leading to less clogged pores.
HOW MANY DO I NEED?
The results from the Carbon Facial Peel are noticeable after the very first treatment. Four to five treatments spaced two to four weeks apart will enhance the collagen production, oil reduction and more radiant skin benefits. We recommend adding this into your annual skincare plan.
