What Is Carbon Laser Peel?

by | Jun 30, 2015

Hi everyone, I hope the brand new week is treating you well and that you are well rested from the weekend to tackle the challenges of the week ahead. For today’s topic, I want to talk about the Carbon Laser Peel, covering how it works as well as the types of skin conditions that it can be used to treat. It is growing in popularity due to its ability to treat various skin imperfections, and each session can be completed fairly swiftly.
How it works
Carbon laser peel is becoming increasingly accepted as an innovative laser resurfacing treatment, making full use of the power of laser beams in order to address and treat imperfections found on the skin. It can help to enhance the radiance of your skin, giving it a more youthful appearance and glow. It also encourages skin smoothness as it reveals fresh layers of skin underneath once the old, dead layers have been removed. This helps rejuvenate your skin and improves its overall appearance.

The procedure is simple and starts off by outlining and identifying a specific treatment area on your skin. Once this area is determined, a thin layer of carbon will be applied to cover up the skin. After this, a focused laser beam will be aimed at the area of the skin covered in carbon; a clicking sound will be heard during this procedure. What happens is that the carbon helps to absorb the laser beam due to its dark shade, before a vacuum lightly uses suction power to remove the carbon particles. This simultaneously removes the damaged or affected upper layers of your skin in the process.

Thermal energy is generated in the skin as a result, which triggers the production of fresh collagen and a new layer of skin. This helps to increase the rate of growth of connective tissue, speeding up the skin’s recovery. The carbon particles also exfoliate the skin, cleaning pores thoroughly and leaving behind a smooth layer of skin.
What Can It Treat?
Carbon laser peel can be used to treat hyperpigmentation, where the skin is overexposed to the sun, resulting in the production of melanin to protect itself from the sun’s harmful UV rays. When the skin produces too much melanin, it can form dark, concentrated patches which results in hyperpigmentation – it is harmless, but some may find it visually unappealing.

Large pores can also be treated with carbon laser peel, whereby oily skin and a build-up of sebum beneath the skin leads to swelling. The swelling stretches out the pores, making them appear larger than normal. This can also be cause by old or aging skin which does not snap back into its original shape, leaving pores stretched out more than usual.
Skin whitening is another treatment that can be done using carbon laser peel, as the laser reveals a fresh layer of skin. As this layer of skin is healthy and unblemished, it will have a healthy glow which makes it look fairer – known as a natural whitening effect.
