The carbon facial is a two-stage process. Before the treatment begins, we will double cleanse the skin.
A layer of liquid carbon is then applied to the skin, where it penetrates deep into the pores. As the carbon dries, it attaches itself to dirt, oil or dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. Once dried, the carbon is ready to meet our laser.
The light from our laser is highly attracted to the carbon particles. The carbon absorbs the light energy from our laser, causing it to vaporise. As the laser makes contact with the carbon, you will hear a loud audible ‘crack’. Although loud, this is nothing to worry about, and is just the sound of our laser vaporising the carbon.
As the heat from our laser is pulsed deep into the skin, our skin’s natural healing mechanisms are activated in the deeper layers. 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.
For longer term change in the tone, firmness and radiance of the skin, multiple treatments are recommended.
