Hollywood Facial Laser
The Carbon Laser Facial was once referred to as the China Doll facial. It has been a very popular treatment throughout Asia for a long time. This is probably because it was a safe laser treatment that offered patients the hope of brighter, more radiant skin and deep layer rejuvenation . This treatment had other benefits such as removing surface dirt, oil and dead skin cells and reducing the P. Acnes bacteria responsible for acne. It was perhaps, these benefits that brought it to the attention of the estheticians of Hollywood A-List celebrities, where it was dubbed the Hollywood Peel aka the Hollywood Laser Peel.
CLF (carbon laser facial) is a non-ablative laser skin treatment that uses the conductive qualities of carbon to quickly and painlessly exfoliate, cleanse, clear and tighten pores, brighten and even-out skin tone and activate a deeply rejuvenating skin reaction that produces skin that is smooth, plump and radiant!
What You Need To Know?
What is a carbon laser facial?
It involves applying a layer of liquid carbon over the face, which penetrates deep into the pores.
A laser blasts the carbon away, with the light highly attracted to carbon particles.
It’s claimed the carbon absorbs contaminants, and when the laser destroys the carbon it gets rid of these too.
The laser is also said to remove dead skin cells, blackheads and oil.
Who can benefit from this treatment?
For those who want to combat the signs of aging, Carbon Laser Facials can rejuvenate your skin by:
- Reducing the signs of premature aging
- Improving skin integrity and radiance
- Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
- Increasing skin tone and texture
- Stimulating collagen growth for firmer, plumper skin
- Reducing oily skin or exfoliating dry skin
- Erasing or fading yellow/brown pigmentation
- Shrinking scars (must be young scars of a small diameter).
Which celebrities use them?
A-listers Kim Kardashian, who is also a fan of the vampire facial, is said to get a carbon laser facial. Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, both exes of Brad Pitt, are reported to have them done.
No matter by what name you might know it, the principle is the same. CLF (carbon laser facial) is a non-ablative laser skin treatment that uses the conductive qualities of carbon to quickly and painlessly exfoliate, cleanse, clear and tighten pores, brighten and even-out skin tone and activate a deeply rejuvenating skin reaction that produces skin that is smooth, plump and radiant!
Carbon Laser Facials are safe and effective for all types of acne and can:
- Gently clear your pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads
- Eliminates the need to extract comedones
- Simultaneously targets acnebacteria and shrinks your sebaceous glands for reduced oil production, congestion and outbreaks
- Decreases cyst size, papules and nodules
What can I expect?
Your skin will feel immediately smoother and look instantly refreshed. Better still, there’s zero downtime! You can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment – your skin may appear slightly red but this should disappear within a few hours. We recommend you use SPF 30+ and avoid abrasive exfoliates or other invasive skin treatments for a few days.
How long do results last?
It will depend on the condition of your skin, your skin type 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.
Please note: If you’ve recently had dermal filler or toxin treatments, we’ll recommend you wait a minimum of 2 weeks before undergoing Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation.
Will it hurt?
No! The treatment is gentle, non-invasive and painless. You’ll probably hear a small pulse as we target the carbon particles in your pores with the laser. Our clients describe the feeling as warm or prickly but not painful
