Fresher, Revitalized Skin

The carbon laser peel is a pain-free, no downtime treatment that deeply cleans the skin, closes the pores, and controls excess sebum—making it the perfect peel for those with oily skin or large pores. 

What Can the Carbon Peel Do?

  • Remove dead skin cells
  • Treat acne and acne scarring
  • Improve oily skin
  • Decrease inflammation 

  • Lessen pigmentation
  • Reduce discoloration caused by acne
  • Shrink enlarged pores
  • Stimulates new collagen growth
  • Provide an instant glow

What to Expect During a Carbon Peel

We recommend that you stop using retinol products for one week before your appointment. You should also be using a good sunscreen daily during this time.

A carbon peel combines two things: the actual peel and a laser. Before your treatment begins, your skin will be cleansed, and then you will be given protective eyewear. The mask will be applied (it looks like a dark clay mask).

The carbon mask absorbs oil, dirt, dead skin cells, and other debris from deep within the pores. Once the mask has been applied to your skin, the laser will begin to do its work. It will be passed over your skin, and the mask activates the laser light energy. The laser “zaps” up the mask—and all that dirt and oil along with it. Enlarged pores will also shrink due to the laser heat, and pigmentation will dissipate. Treatment time is quick and convenient, and there is no downtime—just a fresh, healthy glow. Repeat carbon peels can be scheduled four weeks apart.

Recovery and Home Care

Although there is no downtime typically associated with a carbon peel, some patients with sensitive skin do occasionally have some redness, dryness, or flaking for a few days. For best results, we recommend that you moisturize daily with a good moisturizer and wear sunscreen (with at least SPF 30+) religiously for at least one week. Avoid using retinol products and exfoliating for one week following your carbon peel.
