Carbon Laser Peel for Pigmentation
WHAT CAUSES PIGMENTATION
Your skin has a natural defensive mechanism to protect itself from the sun’s damaging UV rays – it produces melanin as a shield. However, pigmentation can occur when your skin produces too much melanin focused in a large area, forming dark, visible patches. These patches are harmless but some individuals may find it too unsightly, and thus seek treatment for it. This condition can also be cause if you constantly pick at your skin or experience skin inflammation, hormonal changes, or even when you take selected medication or antibiotics.
HOW IT WORKS
As an innovative laser resurfacing treatment, it uses laser beams to target and treat your skin imperfections. The radiance of your skin will be improved, simultaneously promoting smoother skin in the fresh layer that is revealed.
The process starts by covering the selected treatment area using a thin carbon layer, with a focused laser beam then aimed at this area. You will hear a clicking sound during the procedure. The laser beam will be absorbed by the dark shade of the carbon particles, before these are removed via the light suction of a vacuum. This also removes damaged upper layers of skin at the same time.
As a result, thermal energy will be generated in your skin which helps to boost the production of fresh collagen and new skin cells. This increases the rate of growth of connective tissue, with the carbon particles also exfoliating your skin and cleansing pores thoroughly.
This will not be painful or uncomfortable, and you will only experience a sensation similar to pins and needles during the procedure. As the treatment is versatile and non-physical, carbon laser peel is also very effective for treating tough areas such as the nose.
You do not need to rest after this treatment, and can return to your daily activities as soon as the procedure is completed. An immediate improvement should be noticeable following the first session, which makes it a very popular method of treatment for many people.
Depending on your skin condition, you will require a varying number of sessions for the best outcome. This is also dependent on your desired result, and it may be more effective to combine the procedure with other available treatments. Your doctor will advise you accordingly, and discuss this further during the consultation.
