The laser carbon peel is a fast and painless procedure done to help improve the look of the skin.
It’s used primarily by people with oily skin, acne, and enlarged or clogged pores. This treatment is also beneficial if you’re starting to see the effects of sun damage to your skin.
What are the benefits of a laser carbon peel?
Laser carbon peels deeply exfoliate the skin. They also help stimulate collagen production.
Laser carbon peels are used to treat:
- acne pigmentation
- acne scarring
- enlarged and clogged pores
- fine lines and wrinkles
Chemical peels also treat these skin conditions, but here are some of the main differences between the two:
- laser carbon peels use heat instead of chemicals for results
- laser carbon peels require no downtime
- people with sensitive skin or skin conditions like eczema will usually experience less redness and irritation after a carbon peel than from a chemical peel
How effective is a laser carbon peel?
Laser carbon peels are typically very effective for improving the look of oily skin and large pores. If you have severe acne or acne scarring, it may take several treatments before you see full results. Fine lines and wrinkles should also be visibly diminished after one or more treatments.
Carbon peels may be repeated every two to three weeks. This period of time allows for ample collagen regeneration between treatments.
What are the side effects of a laser carbon peel?
Apart from a slight reddening of the skin and a tingling sensation, there should be no side effects after a laser carbon peel.
Laser carbon peels can refresh and improve the look of skin, and they’re best for people with oily skin, enlarged pores, and acne. People who have minor wrinkling and photoaging may also benefit from this treatment.
Laser carbon peels are painless, and require no recovery time. Other than mild and temporary redness, there are no reported side effects.
