What Is Carbon Peeling?
In this peeling method, a layer of liquid carbon (charcoal or activated carbon) is rubbed on the skin. This carbon layer penetrates deep into the pores of the skin and the laser light is absorbed by the carbon particles. When the laser beam is passed over the carbon area, it destroys the carbon and by destroying the dead cells, it also removes the fat and waste materials on the skin.
Carbon absorbs fat and wastes deep in the skin. By passing the laser over the area, the carbon particles are targeted and destroyed, as well as everything that has been absorbed by the carbon.

Rejuvenation: in carbon peeling treatment, a deeper layer of the skin is targeted, therefore, collagen production is activated in the skin, fine wrinkles are reduced, and you will have a firmer complexion.
Treatment of acne scars and excessive sebum: the heat generated during carbon peeling destroys the bacteria on the skin surface that cause pimples and acne, and also causes the sebaceous glands to shrink, which will result in less oil production and helps with the elimination of the fat that sits on the surface of the skin. This treatment can be done in all areas of the body, although carbon laser facial is the most common option.

How Does Carbon Peeling Work?
It is recommended to stop using retinol about a week before carbon laser treatment. You should also use sunscreen daily during this period. Carbon peeling is a multi-part process that takes about 30 minutes from start to finish. The steps of carbon peeling are:
- The therapist spreads a layer of liquid carbon on your face. Carbon absorbs oil, dirt, and dead skin cells from deep within the pores.
- You wait about 10 minutes for the liquid carbon to dry.
- After the carbon dries, your therapist will give you eye protection to protect your eyes from the laser.
- Your therapist passes a laser over the skin. This heats the carbon and binds it to the epidermis.
- If you have very sensitive skin or dark spots such as melasma, your therapist may advise against the heating step. The laser also heats the subcutaneous tissue, strengthening collagen and filling fine lines.
- At higher energy settings, a laser will be used to fragment the liquid carbon into tiny particles.
- Your therapist may also apply a moisturizer and sunscreen to your skin after the treatment.
You immediately notice brighter, younger skin and tighter pores. If you have sensitive skin, you may experience some redness. This usually takes an hour or less to go away.
