Carbon Laser Facials

What is Carbon Laser Facial?

Known as the “China Doll Facial” because of the smooth, porcelain-like results it achieves, this treatment is particularly popular in Asia. As the name implies, it involves the use of both carbon and laser to achieve a range of skin goals. The treatment can improve pore size, remove blackheads, skin tone and texture. It can also assist with active acne, scarring and post-acne discolouration. If you’re concerned about the signs of ageing, our Carbon Laser Facial improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst also boosting collagen and elastin production. Overall, your complexion will look brighter and healthier after a Carbon Laser Facial treatment 

How does Carbon Laser Facial work?

To begin this treatment, your face is thoroughly cleansed, and we may apply an exfoliator to the skin’s surface to remove dead skin cells. Our carbon cream is then massaged into your skin for several minutes and allowed to dry.

Next, we place a protective shield over your eyes and begin the laser treatment. The laser is attracted to the pigment in the carbon and “pops” the carbon off the surface of the skin, removing superficial layers as it goes. As the carbon paste is gently vacuumed up, the skin is exfoliated and any debris in the pores is removed. Once the treatment is over, we hydrate the skin with serums (such as Vitamin B) and a moisturiser, as well as a protective sunscreen

What type of equipment do you use at Southern Cosmetics for this treatment?

We use the Pastelle laser for our Carbon Laser Facial treatments. This technology is safe and effective.

How does the treatment feel?

Patients may experience a light, tingling sensation, and a very mild warmth, but the treatment is not unpleasant.

When will you notice a change after a Carbon Laser Facial?

You may notice a mild, temporary redness straight after the treatment, but this usually subsides within a few hours. The benefits of our Carbon Laser Facial are often seen after a single treatment, but the effects will improve with multiple sessions.

How many sessions are usually required?

During your consultation, we can walk you through the number of sessions you may require to achieve your skin goals. We may recommend a course of treatments, spaced out every few weeks. Alternatively, if you’re just wanting to freshen up before a big event, you may only require one session

How long will the results of the Carbon Laser Facial treatment last?

Your skin type and lifestyle will affect the longevity of the positive effects of the treatment. During your consultation, we’ll explain how to get the most out of your treatment and achieve long-lasting results.
