What is the Carbon Laser Peel?

The Carbon Laser Peel, also known as the “Hollywood Laser Peel” is a must-have treatment for celebrities in Hollywood. The Carbon Laser Peel is performed using the Spectra Laser. This unique laser device uses advanced laser technology to treat a variety of skin conditions. The Spectra Laser incorporates dual wavelength technology (1064nm, 532nm) with Q-switch and long-pulsed 1064nm capabilities. This allows us to treat a variety of skin disorders including large pores, acne scars, wrinkles, redness, rosacea, sun damage, sun spots, melasma and even tattoos.

What should I expect during my treatment?

The procedure is a three-step process to reduce pore size, exfoliate the skin and soften fine lines and wrinkles.  Topical carbon is applied to the skin and allowed to absorb into the top layers of the skin and pores. The laser energy then gently removes the carbon, along with dead skin cells and pore debris. You will notice an immediate improvement in the softness and radiance of your skin after the very first treatment.  With each treatment, you will notice a continued improvement in the vitality and texture of your skin due to collagen & elastin stimulation.

How long does the procedure take?

The treatment time varies depending on what we are treating. For overall skin rejuvenation and exfoliation using topical carbon, the procedure takes approximately 45 minutes.

Is it painful?

Most people find the procedure very comfortable. Topical anesthesia is not required.

Who is a good candidate?

All skin tones, from light to dark, can be safely treated with this laser. Patients who are pregnant or nursing cannot be treated. Also, those who have received Accutane or any oral Vitamin A acne therapy cannot be treated for 6 months after their last dose.

Is there downtime?

No, you can return to your regular activities directly following your treatment.
