Follow Hollywood A-listers and get the ultimate treatment for any special occasion or event. The Carbon Laser Peel [China Doll Peel or Hollywood Peel] is a non-invasive laser therapy treatment which refines pores and removes dead skin, excess oil and other impurities; leaving your skin looking fully-rejuvenated and radiant.
If you aim to shine bright with a porcelain complexion like any Hollywood A-lister, the Carbon Laser Peel will give you the gold standard of total facial rejuvenation.
Harnessing the power of technologically-advanced laser energy and dark carbon to attract thermal light and remedy any imperfections, the Carbon Laser Peel works to restore the appearance of uneven skin tone and texture, and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin deep within the skin.
How does a Carbon Laser Peel work?
The non-invasive Carbon Laser Peel works in two magical ways.
As the laser energy is attracted to the black colour of carbon, a thin layer of carbon liquid is applied so that the particles absorb any contaminants and excess oil which may be blocking the pores. The Q-switched laser energy’s [1064nm] wavelength then targets the melanin [pigmentation in the cells] and explodes the carbon – a gentle process that purifies the skin removes any build-up of dead cells in the pores.
Adding more bang to your buck is the simultaneous band of thermal energy which travels deep into the dermal layers to reactivate a synthesis of collagen found in the fibroblasts.
What does the process entail?
The treatment begins with our senior dermal therapist, Michele Hetherington cleansing your face before eye pads and goggles are issued.
A thin layer of liquid carbon is then applied to the skin’s surface and is evenly distributed to attract the laser’s thermal energy. After the carbon has set, the particles are then absorbed by the light and the laser’s energy explodes the carbon; a process that effectively removes excess oil, impurities and dead skin found in the opening and inner walls of the pores in the upper layers of the skin.
The laser’s thermal energy is also pulsed over the skin so that it penetrates deep into the dermis to stimulate collagen production and promote instant tissue rejuvenation.
Is the treatment painful?
No. The Carbon Laser Peel is painless.
During the 30-minute procedure, patients will hear ‘snapping’ sounds from the exploding carbon particles and at most, feel a slight tingling of the skin as the carbon is removed along with the upper layer of the skin.
What are the benefits of a Carbon Laser Peel?
Aside from brightening the complexion, cleansing and purifying the skin and smoothing uneven pigment for more uniformed texture, the long-lasting treatment will also:
- remove dead skin cells and unclog pores in the epidermis in an exfoliating effect
- remove blackheads and impurities and restore the skin’s sebum balance
- help tighten the skin through the regeneration of collagen and elastin.
- reduce skin inflammation and the effects of sun damage
- lighten pigmentation including age spots, post-acne scarring and freckles
- reduce fine lines
- strengthen the natural skin barrier’s functions.
Who is best suited for the treatment?
The Carbon Laser Peel is suited to most skin types of all ages. It is also particularly effective for patients with oily skin as the treatment reduces bacteria which causes acne breakouts.
Before commencing, the health of your skin will be first determined during a consultation. This includes the review of any allergies and a history of any skin conditions.
What A-lister favours the Carbon Laser Peel?
Look no further than Kim Kardashian who never steps out on the red carpet without her skin looking luminous. According to reports, it is said that Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie are also fans of the Carbon Laser Peel.
Is there any downtime?
Aside from slight redness and possible tingling, the rest of the day will be business as usual. We will also provide you with a complimentary LED Therapy session to speed up the healing process and reduce any immediate redness or inflammation.
If you have a special event coming up [even a job interview], we recommend that you book the treatment three days prior to optimise the overall rejuvenation effect.
In fact, the Carbon Laser Peel is one of the most popular treatments for brides-to-be, jet-setters returning home and teenagers attending proms.
Are there any side-effects?
The pre-treatment consultation will help minimise or eliminate any side-effects, which may include temporary hair removal or lightening of facial hair to the treated area
How many sessions will I require?
The number of sessions will depend on your desired results and the condition of your skin. We usually recommend a course of two to four treatments for optimal results along with maintenance treatments every four to 12 weeks.
You will, however, see a significant change after your first treatment.
We will also recommend a customised post-treatment skincare regime to optimise the results. For all appointments and consultations, please contact practice manager, Jane Luong on 97446755.
