The Carbon Facial, also known as ‘China Doll Peel’, gives you glowing skin after just one treatment. If you’re looking for a quick, quality skin rejuvenation with no downtime and immediate result, this treatment is for you. The Carbon Facial can treat acne and blackheads, while also reducing the appearance of enlarged pores and acne scarring. You can expect instant and cumulative results with each treatment.

Pre-treatment:

The Carbon Peel cannot be performed while pregnant and breastfeeding, if you have diabetes, connective tissue diseases or being treated for cancer. You may be required to use certain skin care for approximately two weeks prior to your Carbon Peel. This is essential to achieve the safest and most effective treatment possible. You need to ensure that you are using an SPF 30+ and inform your therapist if you have any allergies.

What to expect:

Your therapist will apply a layer of liquid carbon to your skin, allowing it to penetrate deeply into your pores and let it dry. The carbon bonds with any debris that might be present, like dead skin cells, contaminants, and oil. Your therapist will then pass a laser across the surface of your skin. Light from the laser is attracted to the carbon. The carbon absorbs the light energy, in the form of heat, and pushes deep into the layers of the skin where elastin and collagen are activated, and new skin cells are produced. Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, the carbon is vaporized along with any dirt, oil or dead skin cells. There’s very little discomfort or pain. The sensation has been described as a mild tingling or very slight pinch.

Aftercare:

There is no downtime following a Carbon Laser Peel with results appearing even following one session. Slight sensitivity for the first 3 days and possible dryness or mild flaking from days 4-5. SPF 30+ must be used daily.
