What to expect from a carbon laser peel facial session

What exactly is a Hollywood Facial? Although called a facial, it is actually an advance laser treatment. It is a mildly exfoliating and resurfacing procedure that helps to improve the appearance of fine wrinkles, pigment, pores, and acne.

The carbon laser peel involves applying a layer of liquid carbon over the face. This lotion forms a dark carbon mask that penetrates deep into the skin. It then pulls impurities, sebum, and oils out. As the carbon absorbs contaminants, the Q-Switch laser will destroy those particles. Patients may feel some warmth or tingling during the treatment, but it is not painful or uncomfortable.


The process is meant to exfoliate the skin, supposedly reducing pore size, evening out skin tone as well as making the skin softer and appear more radiant. The carbon laser facial is particularly beneficial for people with oily skin. Indeed, it reduces acne-causing bacteria and shrinks sebaceous, or oil glands. 

What is the purpose of applying a carbon cream? The carbon cream penetrates deep into the skin and bonds with any debris that might be present, such as dead skin cells, contaminants, and oil. Once the carbon cream has dried, they will then pass a laser across the surface of your skin. The light from the laser is very attracted to the darkly pigmented carbon particles, which in turn, cause an explosion-like reaction
