Carbon Laser

Carbon laser is a laser facial that treats the face with liquid carbon, leaving the skin softer, firmer, and smoother. This non-invasive procedure is sometimes known as the charcoal facial or charcoal peel. Carbon laser involves the application of a layer of liquid carbon over the face which is then penetrated deep into the pores. A laser with light that is highly attracted to carbon particles is then used to blast the carbon away as it can penetrate deep into the skin. 

The carbon used in the carbon laser treatment is capable of absorbing contaminants, and when the laser is used to destroy the carbon, they will get rid of them, as well. Carbon laser treatment is capable of removing dead skin cells, blackheads, and oil. The carbon laser process is meant to exfoliate the skin, reduce pore size, even out uneven skin tone, and make your skin softer and more radiant. 

VIPPS’ carbon laser treatment is great for those with oily skin as it helps to reduce acne-causing bacteria and great in shrinking oil glands.

The Carbon Laser System

Carbon laser is a completely painless, non-invasive laser treatment with minimal to zero downtime. It is recommended for individuals with blackheads, blemishes, enlarged pores, oily skin dull, and uneven skin tone. Carbon laser gently exfoliates, as well as kills acne-causing bacteria (P.acne bacteria) during the process.

The specialist will first clean your face with medical-grade skincare to remove any dirt and substances. A dark carbon layer is then spread evenly on your face. The doctor will then aim an appropriate-setting laser to your skin which will cause a chemical reaction on your skin, generating more collagen that helps to improve your skin quality. 

Due to the darker shade of carbon, it will allow your skin to absorb the laser faster and better. A vacuum will then be held onto the skin to remove the particles and damaged upper layer of the skin. The exfoliating process will remove unwanted substances such as excess sebum, dead skin cells that can stop your skin from breathing and clog your pores.
