Carbon Peel

Even when we take good care of our skin, it can develop problems and imperfections. Stubborn acne leads to open pores, pigmentation flares up on warm days, and fine lines appear with age. Various treatments help with individual problems, but there seems to be no limit to what the Spectra Carbon Laser Peel can achieve.


Carbon Peel

The Spectra Carbon Laser Peel, also known as the Hollywood Facial, combines a carbon lotion with laser techniques to reduce the appearance of pigmentation, fine lines and textural irregularities. Oil production is diminished, freeing the skin from acne and reducing pore size. The Spectra Peel also treats melasma, a severe form of pigmentation.

A carbon-based lotion is applied to the skin which deeply penetrates the pores. With the lotion still applied, a laser is passed over the skin several times, lightly ablating the old surface layer of the skin and heating the layers below. While laser energy breaks up pigment and targets acne, heat stimulates the production of collagen.

You May Have

How long does the procedure take?

A Carbon Spectra Peel takes on average 45 minutes.

Does the procedure hurt?

The majority of patients do not report any pain and the treatment does not require anaesthesia. A warm sensation may be felt across the treated area, but this should not cause discomfort.

When will I see results?

Results can be seen immediately and continue to develop over time. As collagen is regenerated, fine lines and wrinkles continue to reduce in appearance. Bacteria which causes acne is destroyed preventing future breakouts.  

How long will the results last?

Laser treatments are considered to be long-lasting, however, the results are not permanent. Patients should maintain a good home skincare regime and use sun cream to prolong results.

How many treatments will I need?

For most people we recommend to have this treatment on a monthly basis to keep the skin optimized and less congested. Depending on your skin type and concerns, we may recommend two a month. However you can see great results from just one treatment.
