Carbon Facial

Is a non-invasive procedure and is great for treating

Enhance your skins radiance

The carbon laser facial is a laser procedure for stimulating collagen production, enhancing the skins radiance and promoting a smooth, glowing complexion. It restores firmness to the skin and improves overall skin texture.

HOW DOES does it work?

We apply a specifically designed medical carbon mask which is allowed to dry over a period of 10 minutes. Then our Nd Yag Laser delivers short, rapid high intensity pulses of light, it is used to heat and cause an implosion of the carbon particles. 

The laser light is absorbed by the carbon paste focusing the laser energy directly onto the epidermis. As the laser moves across the skin the
carbon paste is gently vacuumed up, exfoliating the skin and removing any debris in the pores.

The treatment minimises pore sizes and the thermal effect of the laser beam stimulates collagen and skin cell renewal. Regeneration occurs by encouraging growth of collagen and the elastic fibres. 

What is achieved is a complexion relieved of wrinkles, sags, open pores, age and sun spots and a complexion notably more luminous.

important aftercare info

Carbon Laser Facial has been described as feeling warm or prickly, but not painful, and assists in leaving the skin looking clear and glowing. It is sometimes described as a pins and needles sensation. A minor laser sound is heard as the carbon particles are targeted by the laser and the light energy is absorbed by the carbon particles. If at any point you feel any discomfort we can engage our Pain Management machine to minimize all sensitivity.

Carbon Laser Facial is non-invasive and you can return to normal activities straight after your treatment. You will need to ensure that you use SPF 30+ sunblock for any outdoor activities.

Please allow one hour for your appointment and where possible arrive 5 minutes prior to your allocated appointment time in order for you to fill in all the necessary paperwork.

As each client is different it is not possible to completely predict how many treatments you will need, but on average we recommend a full course of six treatments to achieve ideal results. We suggest treatments to be spaced with a 7-10 day interval between each treatment for maximum results.

The skin can appear slightly red after treatment but that usually disappears within a few hours.

Some clients may experience skin dryness after treatment, so a good moisturiser should be applied on the face to hydrate the skin. Exfoliating or skin peels should be avoided post treatment.

Direct sun exposure should be avoided.

Your skin will turn slightly pink, feel warm from the inside to outer surface (some parts on the face are more sensitive, so may feel warmer and more intense – this is normal). A feeling of skin tightening can be experienced. Any feeling of warmth will generally dissipate within 30 minutes to 2 hours, after treatment. You can return to normal activities immediately. Makeup and Sunscreen can be applied immediately post treatment. Results can be improved by minimal sun exposure, not smoking and keeping stress to a minimum. The longevity of the effects from the treatment is determined by the skin condition, skin type and your lifestyle.
