It is a great way to get a quick skin refresher without the longer downtime associated with other laser procedures. It evens skin tone, reducing the appearance of pigment, fine lines, and acne scars.

  • Eliminate the need for comedone extraction

  • Simultaneously target and destroy acne bacteria

  • Shrink sebaceous glands for reduced oil production, congestion and outbreaks

  • Decrease cyst size, papules, pustules and nodules

 

How does it work?
A layer of liquid carbon is applied to your face.  We allow it to penetrate deeply into your pores using gentle heat to help it dry and adhere to your skin. The carbon molecules bond with any debris that might be present, like dead skin cells, contaminants such as blackheads, congestion, and oil.

 

A laser is then passed across the surface of your skin.  The laser is super attracted to the carbon molecules and the carbon absorbs the light energy.  This reaction causes the carbon to combust.  These mini explosions push energy in the form of heat into your skin where the fibroblasts that make collagen and elastin reside.  The mini explosions also vaporize the carbon and destroy any dirt, oil, dead skin cells, or other debris adhering to your skin.  

What can I expect?
Your skin is going to feel immediately smoother and look instantly refreshed and refined. There is no downtime and you can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment – your skin may appear slightly pinkie red but this should dissipate within a few hours.  Sunscreen SPF 50+ should be applied regularly.  Exfoliation and active skincare ingredients should be avoided for at least 72 hours.  If it stings - wash it off.  Avoid abrasive exfoliates or other invasive skin treatments for several days.  

 

How does it feel?

There’s very little discomfort or pain. The sensation has been described as a mild tingling or very slight pinch.  Clients are numbed before the procedure to be sure their treatment is comfortable.

 

How long do results last?
This will depend on the condition of your skin, your skin type, your skin regime, and your lifestyle.

You’ll probably notice results after a single treatment. However, for long-term results, we recommend regular treatments – 4-6 treatments are optimal, spaced 2-4 weeks apart.  This can be decided with a consultation.
