What is a Carbon laser or Carbon peel?

A carbon laser or peel is done using a q-switch laser and a carbon paste applied on the skin. It is an ideal treatment for oily, acne prone skin with clogged pores.

How does Carbon laser work?

During the procedure a thin layer of carbon is applied on the skin. This carbon then seeps into the pores of your skin and settles down. Post this we use Alma q switch laser to deliver laser shots on the skin. This laser has a property to be absorbed only by the dark carbon applied to your skin. The carbon particles absorb the energy, heat up and pop. This bursting or popping of carbon leads to cleansing of all pores. It causes clearing of all dirt and sebum in the pores and therefore decreases the chances of you developing whiteheads, blackheads or acne. The laser also calms down any existing acne.

Carbon laser is helpful in:
  1. Active acne
  2. White heads and blackheads
  3. Pigmentation, tanning and acne marks
  4. Dilated pores
