CARBON LASER FACIAL REVIEWS
“I had a spectra Hollywood peel. The staff are great, professional and caring. The lady who booked me in over the phone was the best, she listened to my needs and recommend me the treatment after listening to my skin concerns. She advise me of the closest clinic to me and gave a personal recommendation. Thank you all for a pleasant treatment and experience. I will be back for more.”
“When you phone up to receive your exceptional advice you will be greeted with a warm welcome by the lovely Shereen at reception who makes you feel comfortable and at home straight when your foot hits the floorboards. I opted my treatment to get rid broken capillaries on my face from prescription topical creams for acne and this treatment has absolutely saved my skin from getting any worse and the results are almost instantaneous.”
“The treatment went very smoothly and I did not feel any discomfort. Immediately after the treatment, I noticed my skin was more fresh, firm and tight. After a week my skin was getting even better and my breakout also dried and disappeared. I am very pleased with the treatment and booked another treatment when I visit London next time.”

HOW DOES CARBON LASER FACIAL WORK?
STAGE 1 – Carbon Nano-Particles Applied
The procedure takes about 45 minutes starting with the therapist attaching eye protectors to you. A face mask of activated charcoal or carbon powder is prepared and delicately applied to your face. Once applied, it will look like you are wearing a mud mask!
STAGE 2 – Shattering dirt & epidermal keratinocytes
The laser passes over your skin on the Spectra setting emitting pulses which heat thin layers of collagen and skin tissue. The carbon absorbs heat then transfers the heat so it penetrates deep into your skin.
Laser energy works to break up any pigment, which is carried away by your body naturally. It also helps to stimulate the build-up of collagen which minimises fine lines.
STAGE 3 – stimulating the skin cells regeneration
The laser then goes over your skin in the Q-switch mode lightly exfoliating your skin. You will hear a soft snapping noise as the carbon is blasted off the skin. You may feel a light tingling. This superficial peeling removes excessive sebum, exfoliates the upper layer of skin and unclogs pores.
STAGE 4 – new collagen and elastin production
The final pass is made over your face to ensure all the carbon is removed. The frequency of the laser is increased again to ensure all the carbon has been vaporised.
CARBON FACIAL AFTERCARE
To fully benefit from your facial leave your skin to breath overnight. This allows products to absorb and protect your skin. Before bed clean your the skin gently using cotton and warm water before applying your usual cream. Always use SPF of 30 or above.

AT THE CLINIC
You will meet with one of our practitioners for an in depth discussion. Your skin will be examined and you will be given an opportunity to ask questions and to discuss your medical history.
The laser peel begins with application of a carbon solution onto the skin. This liquid “tricks” the laser into thinking it is attacking pigment. As the laser is passed three times over the skin, the carbon absorbs heat, passing it on to the underlying skin.
When your treatment is complete you will be advised to avoid direct sun exposure for at least 24 hours. You skin may appear red for a short amount of time following treatment, however there is no downtime.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU HAVE A CARBON LASER FACIAL?

CAN YOU WEAR MAKEUP AFTER CARBON LASER FACIAL TREATMENT?
Yes you can apply make up straight after although we would recommend you wait for a couple of hours to ensure the make up does not irritate the skin.
WHAT DOES THE CARBON DO?
The carbon particles penetrate the pores, exploding as they absorb the laser energy. Collagen production is stimulated, causing shrinking of the inner walls of the pores.
The light exfoliation effect is immediate and as soon as the treatment is over your skin should feel clean with pores cleared. There should be no peeling as experienced with other chemical peels and treatments.
