The Carbon Laser Treatment also known as ‘Carbon Peel’ ‘Black Doll Facial’ and ‘Hollywood Peel’ is incredibly effective in improving the overall appearance of your skin.

This is the most up to date in skin rejuvenation laser treatments and a favourite amongst many Hollywood ‘A Listers’ – the incredible results are derived from the use of the carbon which is applied to the treatment area, to penetrate deep into the skin acting as the target chromophore and then removed with our world class and trusted Stellar M22 Q Switched Laser from Lumenis.
The process is non-invasive and pain free and with no ‘down time’ you can go about your day as soon as you leave us after your treatment!

The treatment can also assist with issues associated with pigmentation and age spots, with the added benefits of Collagen stimulation and elastin boost means a brighter, tighter, lifted skin is achieved!
How does the Carbon Laser Treatment work?
The principle behind the treatment is that carbon powder has a strong capacity to absorb dirt deep in the pores. The skin is coated with carbon paste which is left to dry and reach skin temperature approximately for 10 minutes, in turn attaching to dirt, oil or dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. The carbon is then removed using the medical grade Q-Switched laser – the light is attracted to the carbon, which in turn absorbs the light energy shattering the epidermal keratinocytes, dirt and oils. As the heat is pulsed deep into the skin, the skin’s natural healing mechanisms are activated in the deeper layers of the skin. Cellular turnover is stimulated and fibroblasts are ignited to begin regenerating collagen and elastin. Over a few weeks to months, the regenerative results will continue.
How does it feel?
During the procedure you may experience slight tingling and warmth on the skin, which is normal whilst the laser pulses away the thin layer of Carbon. At the end of the treatment the skin will feel slightly warm and flushed – Skin is plump and “baby-bottom” smooth. There’s a more even tone, fine lines are diminished and pores are tighter. These outcomes are realised almost immediately and will last for several days.
After the treatment, you should be able to work and return to your daily routine immediately.
Our Q-Switched Laser skin resurfacing treatment without the Carbon works to lift and tighten skin, reduce damage from acne scars, and improve the tone of the neck bands while also providing preventative care for fine lines and wrinkles and a reduction in pore size, leaving you with a refreshed youthful glow in only a few simple treatment sessions.
