Carbon Laser Peel Treatment

 A popular way to moderate mild skin problems is a carbon laser peel. A carbon laser peel is a surface treatment that helps with acne, large pores, and oily skin, and uneven skin tone. They are sometimes called carbon laser facials.

Despite the name, a carbon laser peel is not a traditional chemical peel, instead your doctor will use a carbon solution and lasers to create an exfoliating effect; lasers don't penetrate too deeply into the skin so recovery time is very short. The treatment takes about 30 minutes and you can immediately go about your usual activities.

How does it work?

Carbon laser peels are usually done in a doctor's office or spa. It is done by a layer of liquid carbon that is applied to the skin and penetrates deep into the pores. it removes carbon and dead skin cells, oil, and Skin contaminants by passing through the skin. (It is noteworthy that Laser strongly absorbs carbon particles and is specialized for this procedure)

 if we want to describe the steps in more detail:

Carbon peeling is a two-step process:

  1. In the first step, the specialist puts activated charcoal lotion (a dark cream that is an exfoliating treatment and prepares the skin for the next steps) on the skin, the patient will sit with it on the face for some minutes to let it dry. As the lotion dries, it adheres with oil, dirt, and other skin contaminants. then the laser reaches the dermis at a wavelength of around 1060 nm and heat controls the thermal damage to make the healing process, which increases the production of components of connective tissue such as collagen, elastin, and fibroblasts. It causes deformation in skin rejuvenation and treatment of wrinkles. The heat generated also deforms and shrinks the pores, making it an appropriate treatment for people with large pores in their skin. For fighting against acne, this treatment reduces acne and related inflammation by going directly to the acne membrane and eliminating it.
  2. The second part of the treatment is the removal of carbon lotion with a Q-Switched laser with a short pulse that breaks down the carbon into tiny particles and absorbs them, then the laser removes dead skin cells, fats, and impurities attached to it and removes it. 


In addition to treating acne (mentioned before), carbon laser peels may also improve:

    1. Color and texture opaque
    2. Symptoms of premature aging
    3. Delicate lines and wrinkles
    4. Greasy skin
    5. Dark spots
    6. Mild acne scars

How much does a laser carbon peel cost?

The cost per laser carbon peel is about $ 400. it is considered that it is not typically covered by insurance because laser carbon peeling is a cosmetic procedure, not a therapeutic procedure. Costs are mostly determined based on the experience of the specialists and cosmetologists doing the procedure, and also geographical location and access to the provider.

What are the side effects of carbon laser?

A study on the side effects of carbon laser has shown that the improvement of skin laser The level has continued for an average of 24 months after surgery with few side effects. If this procedure is not done well and skillfully Hypopigmentation(spots on the skin that are lighter than the overall color of normal skin. Pigment or skin color is based on the production of a substance called melanin) is the most common long-term side effect and appears to be related to previous light damage because it contrasts with healthy, freshly damaged skin.

It’s important to have this procedure done by an experienced and licensed professional. This will help to ensure the safety of your skin and eyes as well as provide optimal results.

Is a carbon laser peel really an effective method?

Laser charcoal peeling is often very effective at improving the appearance of oily skin and enlarged pores. In the presence of severe acne or acne scars, several treatments before the full result may be needed. Wrinkles should also be after one or more treatments.

As a strong example, in one of the cases investigated by a reputable source, a young woman with puffy acne and severe skin acne underwent six exfoliating treatments two weeks apart, and the fourth treatment showed significant improvements. his acne was reduced by near 90%.and These long-term results were still visible at the next visit two months later.

Are the effects of carbon laser peel permanent?

Laser carbon peels, like chemical peels, do not have permanent results, and you may need ongoing treatments to maintain their effects. Carbon peeling may be repeated every two to three weeks(In other words, 3 to 5 times over a period of 2 to 3

months with a booster treatment every 6 months). This period of time is needed for collagen to regenerate between treatments.

There is little time for recovery after treatment. Side effects that may be in some rare cases (previously described) usually go away within a few days.
