The Carbon Laser Peel also known as the ‘China Doll Peel’ (named for its porcelain doll like finish to the skin) is an innovative laser resurfacing treatment that utilises the power of laser energy and the gentleness of carbon to treat skin imperfections. It is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores and dull skin. It is an excellent way to refresh and exfoliate your skin.
1.What areas of the body can be treated?
All areas can be treated – Face & Neck are the most common areas.
Other areas - Arms, knees, buttocks and back.
2.When will I see results from my carbon peel?
You will be happy to note an instant brightening of your skin post procedure. There is no downtime for the procedure. The results will continue to improve throughout the successive sessions.
An add on benefit is temporary hair removal to the treated area which is desirable in female patients.
3.How many sessions will I need?
At The Kosme Care Clinic we recommend 4 to 6 sessions 3-4 weeks apart, depending on skin type being treated. This timeframe allows regeneration of collagen and elastin of skin tissue. Maintenance treatments after your initial course are recommended 3 monthly.
4.Are there potential side effects?
Side effects are minimal with slight redness and tingling a few hours post treatment in few patients.
5.Does it hurt?
There is no pain associated with the Carbon Laser Peel treatment. During the procedure, you may experience slight tingling and warmth on the skin, which is normal while the laser pulses away the thin layer of Carbon.
