Carbon peel is a laser treatment that provides one with instantly refreshed and rejuvenated skin. It is quite a revolutionary treatment and is totally pain-free. It especially provides great benefits to those suffering from oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne on the face or on the body. This treatment helps to exfoliate the skin and leave it feeling softer, smoother and firmer. Carbon peel is popularly called Hollywood Peel because many stars perform the peeling before the performance on the red carpet to get an even and radiant complexion almost instantaneously.
A layer of liquid carbon is applied to the skin, allowing it to penetrate deep into the pores. Laser light is highly attracted to the carbon particles, therefore when the laser is passed over the skin, it destroys not only the carbon but takes the dead skin cells, contaminants and oil with it too. Usually suitable for most skin types, the carbon peel treatment takes just about 45 minutes. Some may experience slight redness immediately after the treatment but this will go away quickly.
The Benefits of Carbon Peel Treatment
An improvement of the skin appearance is easily visible after one treatment but to reach the maximum effect, approximately five treatments at intervals of one to two weeks are necessary. Here are some of the major benefits of carbon peel treatment:
· Cleansing: Carbon is able to effectively absorb oil and contaminants from deep within the skin pores. Passing the laser over the treatment area helps to target and destroy the carbon particles, as well as take any absorbed material with it.
· Exfoliating: As the laser targets the carbon, it eliminates blackheads, dead skin cells, effectively exfoliating the skin. The result is softer, more radiant skin with reduced pore sizes, and a more even skin tone.
· Rejuvenating: The Carbon peel treatment stimulates collagen production because it also targets the deep layers of the skin. This results in firmer, plumper skin, reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, and skin feeling tighter and glowing.
· Acne and Oil Destroying: There are other benefits too due to the heat produced by carbon peels. It reduces the P. Acnes bacteria responsible for acne, thereby allowing for better management of pimples and outbreaks. The sebaceous glands or oil-producing glands shrink, resulting in less oil production, thereby reducing congestion building up in the pores.
Carbon peel can be performed anywhere on the body, including the back and chest. The skin needs extra pampering with the carbon peel treatment. It should be accompanied by a good skin-care routine, and daily use of a high-spectrum sunscreen. Results are noticeable and can be experienced after a single treatment, but regular treatments are recommended for maximum long-term results.
