What is a Carbon Facial?
Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a non invasive and pain-free laser treatment that is brilliant for treating minor skin imperfections and blemishes.
What does it treat?
The facial is great for treating any fine lines and wrinkles you may have and also tightens and clears pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads. The treatment is good for reducing acne, acne scarring and reducing any post acne discolouration. It also improves the skins texture as well as stimulating collagen growth.
Why is it also called the Black Doll Facial?
The treatment gets this nickname from the effect that it leaves on the face, it is said to give you a porcelain dolls complexion. It is one of the most advanced treatments for minor skin imperfections and promotes a smooth and glowing complexion.
How many treatments will I need?
A visible difference should be noticed with one individual treatment; however, to achieve the maximum results from the treatment you should have a course of 6 treatments. A 7-10 day break in between each treatment is advised for the best results. After this you should be able to see your full effects for up to a year. As carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation gives an instant improvement to skin tone and texture, some people like to have a single session to have porcelain skin before an event such as a wedding.
Does it hurt?
No, the treatment doesn’t hurt as it is non invasive and gentle, most people describe the sensation as a light tingling feeling, or like a sort of pins and needles.
Do I need to use any special creams after the treatment?
We will put you a moisturiser on that contains SPF 30 to protect your skin, and then you should just continue (or start) with your daily skin routine of cleansing, toning and moisturising.
Can I put makeup on straight away?
We would advise you not to. As the treatment opens your pores the makeup can seep into the pores and clog them, meaning that the treatment you have had will be a little pointless. We recommend leaving a 6 hour gap between the facial and you re-applying a full face of makeup.
How long does the treatment take?
The treatment takes approximately 45 mins from start to finish including allowing drying time for the carbon paste. You should also allow an extra 15 minutes for your consultation and to fill out your forms for the treatment.
