The Carbon Laser Facial
The Carbon Laser Facial is a type of treatment for the face which leaves skin softer, firmer and smoother. It is a non-invasive procedure and is sometimes called the charcoal facial or charcoal peel. It involves applying a layer of liquid carbon over the face, which penetrates deep into the pores. A laser blasts the carbon away, with the light highly attracted to carbon particles.
At Norwich Face and Body Clinic, we have the exclusive Q10 laser, a High-power Nd: YAG laser with four wavelengths which effectively treats an array of skin conditions and concerns.
How it works:
This Norwich Carbon Laser Peel is an effective treatment that results in a flawless complexion, so no acne, acne or enlarged pores! This treatment, which is a go-to for many celebrities before the red carpet, can cleanse, rejuvenate and replenish the skin of many different skin concerns.
By using carbon liquid as the active ingredient in this treatment, we are able to target skin concerns such as oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin and acne across the face and body. The carbon penetrates deep into the layers of the skin when applied to the treatment area. As the laser is passed over the area, it destroys the liquid carbon, removing the contaminants, oils, and dead skin cells along with it.
What to expect:
The liquid carbon which is applied to the skin has the ability to absorb excess sebum (oil) and impurities from deep within the pores, so when the laser is used on these areas, the contaminants from within the skin are destroyed along with the carbon particles. As the carbon particles are destroyed, dead skin cells and blackheads are also removed, which results in an effective exfoliation for the skin. Say hello to softer, more radiant and more even skin and a reduction in pores.
Heat energy is also produced as the laser is attracted to the carbon on the skin, which leads to additional benefits for your skin. The bacteria responsible for acne on the skin’s surface is reduced, which means fewer pimples and breakouts. It also reduces the size of the sebaceous (oil-producing) glands, resulting in less oil production and reduced congested pores.
Pre and post care will be discussed at the consultation and reiterated each visit.
