Carbon Laser Treatments are one of the newest and innovative laser procedures on the market. With immediate results and zero downtime, this treatment is perfect prior to a big event or special occasion!
What is a Carbon Laser Treatment?
A Carbon Laser Treatments is a medical grade mask composed of mineral mud of volcanic rock, applied to the skin prior to our Laser Rejuvenation facials.
This advanced laser treatment has been designed to improve the skins overall appearance by;
- Brightening the skin
- Lightening the skin & any surface pigmentation
- Accelerating blood circulation & cell turnover
- Ridding active acne & acne scarring
- Clearing blackheads and congestion
- Evening out skin tone
- Minimizing enlarged pores and oil production
- Removing unwanted dead skin cells
- Reducing fine lines & wrinkles
The treatments work by applying a thin layer of the carbon mask onto the skin, which will then penetrate deep into the pores. The Medlite Q-switched laser is then used on top of the mask, targeting the carbon particles within the skin. As the laser passes over the skin, it destroys the carbon particles. This abolishes any dead skin, excess oil, and impurities that the peel has engaged with, thus cleansing and exfoliating the skin simultaneously. This results in immediately smoother, firmer, and brighter skin.
Similar to Laser Rejuvenation, the treatment will also stimulate collagen and elastin fibers within the skin, assisting in smoothing out fine lines & wrinkles.
What areas can be treated?
The Carbon Laser Treatment can be used on any body area in which consists of uneven skin tone, fine lines & wrinkles, acne, or surface pigmentation. Most common areas of treatment include the face, neck, decolletage, hands, back, and buttocks.
Treatments are relatively fast, provide little to no discomfort, and have no downtime – which means you are able to carry on with your day after your treatment with no inconvenience.
Unlike Laser Rejuvenation facials on its own, you will see immediate results as well as gradual results over several weeks following your treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments required vary per individual, as results are dependent on your skin type, area being treated, as well as the area size. As a guide, carbon laser treatments usually require 6-8 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart. Contact us to arrange a free laser consultation to discuss a laser treatment plan that suits your needs. Many clients decide to return every 6-8 weeks after the initial course of treatments in order to maintain their results.
Can Laser Hair Removal treatments be done at the same time?
On the treated area, Laser Hair Removal can be done 1 week before commencing course of Carbon Laser Treatments. No hair will be able to grow through once Carbon Laser Treatments are in the progress. If any hair does grow through Nd:Yag laser will discolour that hair and it will fall out within 1 or 2 weeks. This can happen especially on the lip area.
Are there any Precautions to take during treatment?
As with all laser treatment, especially with Laser Hair Removal and Q-Switched Laser treatments, you must avoid exposure to direct sunlight before treatment, during treatment and for some weeks following treatment. At City Laser Clinic, our experienced qualified laser therapists will advise you based on your skin type and the nature of the treatments that you are receiving. The City Laser Clinic therapists do sometimes need to refer clients to their General Medical Practitioner for assessment and when in doubt will not treat until a Medical Clearance is provided. SPF must be worn daily.
