The Benefits Of Carbon Laser Peel Procedure
The carbon laser peel procedure is the latest laser peeling treatment technique that uses a carbon lotion as a photo-enhancer in order to achieve multiple therapeutico-cosmetic effects on the skin being treated.
A medically active carbon lotion is applied to the skin and allowed to dry over a period of 15 minutes. Then, a Q-Switch Nd YAG laser is used to heat and cause an implosion of the carbon particles that lead to breaking the latter into tiny particles that cause the following effects on the treated skin:
  1. Clear the pores from sebum.
  2. Tighten the dilated pores.
  3. Shrink the sebaceous oil-producing glands, thus making the skin less oily (oil control) and decreasing the development of new acne.  
  4. Remove dead skin cells from the superficial .
  5. Stimulate collagen, improving skin tone.
  6. Kill and remove acne-causing bacteria, thus helping to treat moderate to severe acne.
  7. Prevent future break-outs of acne.
  8. Decreasing and eliminating hyperpigmentations (melasmas, cafe-au-lait spots, lentigines, freckles, etc.).
  9. Cause skin lightening.
  10. Cause skin firming or tightening and helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
  11. Cause skin rejuvenation.
  12. Help the skin acquire significant luster.
