What is a Carbon Laser Peel?
At Aesthetica Cosmetic Clinic one of our go to treatment for a quick rejuvenation treatment right before that special event you want to look stunning and radiant at is a Carbon Laser Peel as there is no downtime needed and immediate results! Carbon Laser Peel is one of the newest entrants on the market as it’s non-invasive and quick procedure so can do it even on a lunch break and can be performed on all skin types.
Different to other laser facials, the carbon facial works by having a thin layer of medical-grade carbon applied to the face. The carbon looks and smells like a black moisturiser made from charcoal and soot, and once heated by a laser, it kills acne-causing bacteria in the skin.
A carbon facial is a laser facial that uses a Q-switch laser, combined with a carbon cream, the carbon is used to penetrate the skin, break down dirt and oil, and improve overall skin texture.
Carbon Laser facial is also known as a ‘China Doll Laser Facial’ for its ability to make the skin look like smooth porcelain.
The carbon facial enhances the skin’s radiance and promotes a smooth, glowing complexion. The treatment helps to lessen skin imperfections and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores with a superior cleaning effect to ensure smooth porcelain-like results are achieved
It’s especially effective for anyone with active acne and post-acne hyperpigmentation.

How is a Carbon Laser Peel Performed?
After using a gentle cleanser and exfoliant to remove make-up or skin care products we start by using a mild alcohol swab to degrease the skin to allow better laser penetration. Then a first pass with the Q-switch laser is done to remove surface debris and open skin pores. A thin layer of carbon cream is then applied evenly over the treated area. Once dry, a second pass with the Q-switch laser heating the carbon pushes the carbon particles deeper into the skin and pores. The activated carbon then absorbs excess sebum and other impurities from deep within the skin and beyond the reach of any facial cleansers or scrubs. A third and final pass with the Q-switch using a different setting target and disintegrates the carbon particles and the impurities absorbed. The treatment is ended with an LED and clinical products applied.
