Is A Carbon Laser Peel Worth The Hype?

A carbon laser peel is one of the most facials out there at the moment. It is a lot of A-listers’ favorite, including Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Joli or Kim Kadarshian. That is why it is also called a Hollywood facial. However, it also has a first name, coming back from the very origins of the facial: China Doll facial.



A carbon laser peel has been a very popular treatment in Asia for a very long time. It is a safe laser treatment promising bright and more radiant skin, along with a deep layer rejuvenation and fewer risks of hyper or hypo-pigmentation. This facial removes surface dirt, oil, and dead skin cells and reduce the number of bacteria responsible for acne.



Whatever the name, the principle of carbon laser peel is the same. The facial is a non-ablative laser skin treatment. It uses the conductive qualities of carbon for exfoliation, cleansing, tightening pores, brightening and evening out skin tone as well as deeply rejuvenating the skin. If you want a smooth, plump and radiant skin, that’s the facial for you!



1. How does a carbon laser peel work?



The facial starts with applying liquid carbon over the face. It can be a carbon cream, paste or lotion. Within ten to twenty minutes, the mask will reach body temperature. As the carbon dries, it will attach itself to dirt, oil or dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. This is the pore-cleansing phase. Then, the skin can meet the laser.



The carbon mask will attract the laser. As thecarbon absorbs the light, it will penetrate the deep into the layers of the skin where elastin and collagen are activated and cells begin producing anew. In the meantime, all the dirt and impurities captured by the mask will be destroyed. This procedure will take about twenty minutes. A mild tingling or very slight pinch is produced by the laser but at no point should it be painful.



When the treatment ends, the skin will feel a bit warm. It will ve plump and smooth. More even tone, less fine lines, tighter pores. Results are visibile immediately after the carbon laser peel and will last for several days. This facial is suitable for all skin types. It is extremely beneficial for oily and acne-prone skin, as it removes dirt and oil, and minimizes the pores.



2. What are the benefits of a carbon laser peel?



A carbon laser facial peel is essentially a cleansing and exfoliating treatment. However, it has more benefits. The heat energy is the main reason why the skin gets a boost, as it will stimulate the skin’s natural healing mechanisms in the deeper layers of the skin. The process will begin regenerating collagen and boost elastin. After the facial treatment, patients can expect:



-Radiant glowing skin

-Evened out skin tone

-Tightened pores

-Reduced hyperpigmentation

-Reduced acne scarring

-Fewer blackheads and whiteheads.

-Removed dead skin cells from the superficial layer of the skin

-Stimulated collagen growth



3. How often does one need this facial?



Carbon laser peels have accumulative effects. Doing the facial once as a feel-good, pick-me-up treatment is great. However, doing it more often is even better. The more you do it the better as each treatment builds upon the previous one. More treatments will help improve and sustain the quality of your skin.



You can do a treatment every two or three weeks for amazing results. It is always better to commit to a series to ensure skin improvemen. The facial has no downtime so you can get back to your life and routine immediately after. In some rare instances, itching, flaking and rashes might develop; most usually resolves in a few days. As aftercare, patient can use sun protection (SPF 50 or greater), avoiding hot water, swimming and hot tubs.

  1. I think this is a good worth of a try. I am actually into skincare routine. I have a lot of hormonal acne on my jawline. To think we have this type of treatment, hope I can afford it or if this may be available here in my country. A great information about the treatment you have here.

  2. Oh this sounds amazing, I would love to try this. Thanks so much for sharing this with all of us!

  3. I have NEVER heard of such a thing before but it’s probably because I am not really into anything that touches my face. I get too nervous that it will mess something up and to be honest, I am pretty content with me.

  4. Carbon has so many health benefits. I have recently had to change my skincare routine after having children. I would like to try one of these facials out to see the results.

  5. I generally only use natural products on my skin and do everything right at home. I don’t know if this would suit my sensitive skin type.

  6. I have never heard of this before. Apparently I am way out of the loop, lol. I have heard that carbon has multiple health benefits, though, so I am not surprised to see in in conjunction with laser treatments.

  7. I have actually been really interested in trying one of these but have been to nervous. I love reading about other people’s experiences!
