WHAT IS A CARBON FACIAL?
The carbon facial is a cutting-edge skin resurfacing treatment designed to address imperfections, minimize pores, and eliminate facial impurities like blackheads, all while enhancing skin plumpness and tightness. This non-invasive and painless procedure, also referred to as a ‘China Doll Peel’, delivers immediate results by creating a clear, radiant, and firm complexion, and it requires no downtime.
The treatment involves the application of a liquid carbon layer onto the skin, allowing it to penetrate deeply into pores and dry. The carbon binds to debris such as dead skin cells, contaminants, and oil within the pores. A laser is then passed over the skin’s surface, with its energy and heat being absorbed by the carbon particles. This absorption triggers a controlled reaction, leading to a gentle “explosion” that pushes heat deep into the skin layers where elastin and collagen are stimulated, promoting cell regeneration. Simultaneously, on the skin’s surface, the carbon and impurities are vaporized. Despite the dramatic-sounding process, patients typically experience minimal discomfort, often described as a mild tingling or slight pinch.
