What is Carbon Laser Peel?

A carbon laser peel can be described as a form of non-ablative laser skin treatment to improve the texture, health, and appearance of skin. It is generally recommended to people with acne, oily skin, and clogged or enlarged pores. Carbon laser peel is also useful if you are experiencing signs of sun damage on your skin. It has the ability to stimulate the production of collagen and deeply exfoliating skin.

Laser carbon peel treatment may be recommended to treat:

  • Acne pigmentation
  • Acne
  • Acne scarring
  • Photoaging
  • Melasma
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

How does it work?

Before this fast and painless procedure, the dermatologist would have a word with the patient after evaluating the medical reports and conducting a physical examination. It is important for patients to have a clear and complete understanding of the procedure and get answers to all doubts, concerns, and queries about the procedures and the pros and cons of the procedure. The consultation will also help the patients to have realistic expectations and know more about the benefits of carbon laser peel.

The Best dermatologist in Delhi will ask you to stop making the use of retinol for about 7-10 days before the carbon peel treatment. Patients are advised to make use of sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more on daily basis during this time. 

The dermatologist will start the carbon laser facial treatment by spreading a layer of liquid carbon onto the patient’s face. The liquid carbon will absorb dead cells, oil, and dirt from deep within the skin pores. There will be a waiting time of approximately 10-15 minutes for the carbon to dry. Once the carbon has dried, the doctor will provide eye shields to the patient to protect their eyes from the laser beam. The doctor will now proceed with passing the laser over the patient’s skin in a low-energy setting. This will heat up the carbon to make it bind to the epidermis (the dermatologist may skip this step if you have dark patches like melasma or very sensitive skin). The laser will also heat up the subdermal tissue to plump up fine lines and boost the production of collagen in the body.

Thereafter, the laser will be used on a higher-energy setting for fragmenting the liquid carbon into tiny particles. The dermatologist will then use a smoke evaporator (attached to the laser) to remove the carbon and the debris and impurities absorbed by it. The last step is all about the dermatologist applying sunscreen and hydrating moisturiser to your skin after the carbon peel treatment has been successfully performed.  You can experience the benefits of carbon laser peel in the form of tighter pores and glowing skin.

How Carbon laser facial benefits your skin?

Also known as charcoal peel or charcoal facial, carbon laser facial leaves skin firmer, smoother, and softer. This non-invasive procedure is extremely helpful to reduce pore size, make the skin softer, even out skin tone, remove blackheads, and make the skin appear more radiant and youthful. 

Carbon laser facial treatment is suitable for both men and women and is an excellent choice for people who want to fade freckles, remove acne and blackheads, lighten dark and age spots, and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps to improve skin elasticity, lift and tighten the skin, and moisturise the skin to provide a radiant and bright complexion.

  • Cleansing: Carbon has the unique ability to absorb oil and contaminants from deep within the skin pores. Laser skin treatment helps in targeting and destroying the carbon particles when the laser gets passed over the treatment area.
  • Exfoliating: The absorbed carbon blasts away dead skin cells of the body, blackheads, and whiteheads as it gets targeted by the laser to exfoliate the skin. The result is softer, smoother, and radiant skin with a more even skin tone and reduced pore size.
  • Rejuvenating: Carbon peels have the ability to effectively target skin’s deeper layers for stimulating the production of collagen that, in turn, produces plumper and firmer skin to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. It is also effective to make the skin glowing and tighter.
  • Skincare: The heat produced by the carbon peels helps in minimizing bacteria that are responsible for the growth and development of acne. Therefore, it helps you to manage pimples and outbreaks better. Carbon peels are also helpful to shrink oil-producing glands of the body that reduces the buildup of congestion in the skin pores.
