We’ll apply a layer of liquid carbon to your face (or body), allowing it to penetrate deeply into your pores and let it dry. The carbon bonds with any debris that might be present, like dead skin cells, contaminants and oil.
We’ll then pass a laser across the surface of your skin. Because the laser light is super attracted to carbon particles, its energy and heat is absorbed by the carbon paste destroying the particles in your pores.
Light from the laser is attracted to the carbon. The carbon absorbs light energy. The reaction causes a mini explosion. The explosion pushes the energy, in the form of heat, deep into the layers of the skin where elastin and collagen are activated and cells begin producing anew. Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, as the explosion occurs the carbon is vaporized along with any dirt, oil or dead skin cells. Sounds kind of scary, with all the explosions and vaporizing, but don’t worry... There’s very little discomfort or pain. The sensation has been described as a mild tingling or very slight pinch.
The carbon peel can be done anywhere on the body and is particularly beneficial on the face, decollete, back legs and even feet! Book today to see how Lifestyle Laser in Glenwood can help you!
