Carbon Laser Facial Benefits:
1. Tightens & Cleans Pores
The carbon lotion absorbs dirt from your pores like a sponge, while the heat created from the laser induces the contraction of enlarged pores resulting in clean and tightened pores almost immediately.
2. Kills Acne Causing Bacteria
When targeted at acne, the high energy from the laser goes straight to the acne's membrane and completely destroys it, reducing acne in the future and related inflammation.
3. Increase Collagen Production
When the laser heat reaches the dermis, you create controlled thermal damage to the skin which in a result stimulates a natural healing response from the product. As a result, this causes elastin and fibroblast production to increase and remodel itself to heal the affected area. This process naturally rejuvenates the skin and targets fine lines and wrinkles.
4. Reduces Oil Production
With the combination of the carbon paste and the thermal energy from the laser, the carbon facial will dramatically reduce oil production on the skin by reducing the oil glands and gently exfoliating the skin with unnecessary debris.
5. No Downtime, Just Results.
With the design of the carbon laser facial, you will experience no downtime unlike other facial procedures as well as see immediate results.
What Does the Carbon Laser Peel Feel Like?
As the laser moves across the surface of the skin you will hear the carbon particles "snap" and "pop" off the face. You will also feel the warmth and mild tingling from the laser.
Does the Carbon Laser Peel Hurt?
Even though you might assume that laser treatment might hurt, this facial was designed to be extremely comfortable for the patient and produce no downtime. The laser does not directly target the skin's surface, it specifically targets the carbon pigment that is on top of the skin. Once the laser hits the carbon you will hear just pop and mild warmth on the targeted area. There is absolutely no pain involved with this treatment.
How Long Does the Carbon Laser Peel Take?
The entire treatment takes approximately 60 minutes, and the effects are noticeable straight away. You'll see an instant brightening of your skin, which will also feel smoother and softer than ever before.
Carbon Laser Peel Side Effects?
The Carbon Peel is a completely safe skin treatment, with no reports of major skin complications or painful side effects. After the treatment, you may notice some slight redness and experience some tingling, but this will all go away within the same day of your treatment.
No downtime is required, and you will be able to resume daily activities straight away.
How Often Can You Get Carbon Laser Peel?
You'll begin to see incredible results after only one session. A treatment plan of four to five sessions spaced 2-4 weeks apart, can give great results for improved collagen production reduced oiliness, and tighter more radiant skin. We like to think of this facial as a routine facial that can be repeated once a month to simply achieve great-looking skin no matter what your skin type is!
How Does Carbon Laser Lotion Work?
Activated charcoal is carbon sediment that’s been treated to give it a sponge structure, with lots of holes. If you zoom into activated charcoal, you can see it has a vast surface area because of this structure. This surface area is ideal for absorbing substances. In medicine, activated charcoal is mostly used in poisoning cases, where poison sticks to the charcoal instead of absorbing it into the body.
By default activated charcoal is excellent for soaking up toxins in poisoning, which is why lots of people eat and drink activated charcoal for detox purposes. But why is activated carbon so common and widespread in skincare products now? You may not immediately relate charcoal with healthy skin or skin-care products, but activated charcoal has significant beauty benefits for skin by drawing oil, dirt, and other harmful substances from clogged pores due to its adsorption powers. A regular cleanser removes surface dirt and oil using surfactants like detergents. But surfactants don’t get into pores, unlike activated charcoal which can potentially absorb oil from pores so it could draw out dirt within a pore with it. Activated charcoal powder is proven to absorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances, which makes it a popular ingredient in facials and in the aesthetic field today.
Q-Switch Nd-Yag Carbon Laser Machine:
This laser facial is delivered by our newest state-of-the-art Q-switched Nd-Yag Laser machine. This machine produces rapid high-intensity pulses of light with maximum capability for the destruction of debris clogged in the pores and upper layers of skin. The Q-Switched laser pulse lasts a billionth of a second and is concentrated into very powerful pulses. Because their contact with the skin is less than other lasers, Q-Switched lasers are known for not damaging surrounding tissue and causing unwanted side effects.
Q-Switched lasers are perfect for destroying tiny fragments of pigmentation or ink (tattoo removal), stimulating collagen production, and killing bacteria. As the carbon is targeted by this laser, it blasts away dead skin cells, blackheads and effectively exfoliates the skin. The result is softer, radiant skin with reduced pore size and an evener skin tone. Carbon peels also target the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which produces firmer skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and leaves skin feeling glowing. The heat generated by carbon peels has additional benefits such as lowering the acne-causing bacteria and shrinking the oil-producing glands resulting in fewer breakouts and reducing congested pores. With advanced technology, Q-Switched lasers are used for many conditions today and are the standard for pigmentation removal and skin rejuvenation.
As with all skin treatments, carbon peels should be supplemented by a good skin-care routine, and daily use of a high-spectrum sunscreen. Noticeable results can be experienced after a single treatment, but for maximum long-term results, we recommend regular treatments.
Carbon Peel Vs. Chemical Peel?
Carbon Peels involve a carbon mask that draws out the skin's impurities, while chemical peels use acidic chemicals to penetrate the epidermis and exfoliate different layers of your skin. Chemical peels require higher concentrations to achieve similar results to a carbon laser peel, therefore resulting in downtime as the skin recovers compared to the carbon laser peel that has no downtime.
The carbon peel is also better for those with sensitive skin, not only due to the treatment process but the effects of the skin by renewing the skin using the heat generated from the laser.
"I work in the city and I have always tried going during my lunch break to get a facial at heyday and after a few times i was truly disappointed. I wanted to find a place that was by me in brooklyn and came upon this place! This place literally does not compare. First, they actually do a great job, they offer private rooms, expert staff, and the prices are great! I have been requesting Kristina and I absolutely love her for my deep pore cleansing facial once a month!"
