Non–ablative skin resurfacing by using carbon peel laser treatment. The whole process works to eliminate oil, debris & bacteria in the pore thus helping not only in cleaning up existing acne but also preventing new outbreaks from occurring for weeks or months.
During the procedure, carbon lotion is applied to the skin, which exfoliates and prepares the skin for the next steps. As the lotion dries, it bonds with dirt, oil and other contaminants on your skin surface.
After drying, your doctor uses Q-switched ND: YAG laser to break down the carbon. The laser destroys the carbon particles and any oil, dead skin cells, bacteria or other impurities collagen to the carbon. The heat from the laser stimulates collagen and elastin production and makes your skin look firmer and clear.
