Carbon laser facial key benefits

For those who want to combat the signs of ageing, Carbon Laser Facials can rejuvenate your skin by:

  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tightening and clearing dilated pores
  • Reducing acne, scars and discolouration
  • Reducing/lightening pigmentation
  • Improving skin integrity and radiance
  • Improving skin tone and texture
  • Stimulating collagen growth for firmer, plumper skin
  • Reducing oily skin or exfoliating dry skin
  • Erasing or fading yellow/brown pigmentation
  • Shrinking scars (must be young scars of small diameter).

Carbon Laser Facials are safe and effective for all types of acne and can:

  • Gently clean your pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads.
  • Eliminates the need to extract comedones.
  • Simultaneously target acne bacteria and shrink your sebaceous glands for reduced oil production, congestion and outbreaks.
  • Decrease cyst size, papules and nodules
How it works

This Norwich based Carbon Laser Peel is an effective treatment that results in a flawless complexion.

Our skin specialists apply a layer of liquid carbon to your face, allowing it to penetrate deeply into your pores. The carbon is then dried, which allows it to bond with any debris present like dead skin cells, contaminants and oil.

Next the skin specialist passes the laser across the surface of your skin. Because the laser light is super attracted to carbon particles, its energy and heat are absorbed by the carbon paste, causing a mini-explosion in the form of heat and destroying the particles in your pores. The explosion expels energy deep into the layers of your skin, where elastin and collagen are activated, and cells begin producing anew.

Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, as the explosion occurs, the carbon is vaporized along with any dirt, oil or dead skin cells.

The heat energy produced leads to additional benefits for the 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 reducing congested pores.

What to expect

It sounds extensive, with all the explosions and vaporizing, but rest assured, there’s minimal discomfort or pain. The sensation has been described as a mild tingling or very slight pinch.

We recommend you use SPF 30+ and avoid abrasive exfoliates or any other invasive skin treatments for a few days after your Carbon Facial. Your skin will feel immediately smoother and look instantly refreshed. Better still, there’s zero downtime! You can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment – your skin may appear slightly red, but this should disappear within a few hours.
