What Is Carbon Laser Peel?
Carbon laser peel is a treatment for the face which can leave skin softer, smoother, and firmer. This treatment has been made famous by Asian celebrities and the fact that it is extremely popular all across Asia. Carbon laser peel can shrink enlarged pores, promote a smooth complexion, and enhance the skin’s radiance in general.

About The Procedure
Before the treatment our staff will cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser, so that the carbon solution can penetrate your skin later on. The first step is laser skin rejuvenation, and once that is done, a carbon solution will be applied to your skin. Our team will then use the laser to gently heat up the carbon, to stimulate collagen production, close the pores, and kill the bacteria that were sitting inside the pores. Apart from the bacteria, the laser will also remove oil, blackheads, and dead skin cells.
This process is designed to exfoliate the skin, reduce the size of your pores, even out your skin tone, and make your skin much softer and more radiant. It can reduce acne-causing bacteria and shrink the oil glands, which will significantly improve your skin condition in the long run.
The Benefits of Carbon Laser Peel
This treatment is suitable for all ages and skin types and can lighten age spots and brown spots, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and freckles, and minimise pores. Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and contaminants that sit within the pores. This treatment can also remove your acne and blackheads, resulting in clear, tight, and glowing skin. Elasticity can also be improved, as well as your skin’s ability to lock in moisture.
This procedure can get rid of the dead skin cells from the superficial epidermal layer of your skin, which is a great reason for you to contact us and learn more about the benefits of this treatment. The fact that celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston, and Angelina Jolie have already tried it out definitely means something, right?
Who Is the Right Candidate for Carbon Laser Peel?
The right candidates for carbon laser peel in Sydney are mostly people who have oily skin, as the laser in combination with liquid carbon can destroy bacteria responsible for acne. Besides that, the heat produced by carbon peels will also shrink oil-producing glands, which will ultimately result in reduced oil production. If necessary this treatment can be used on the back and the chest, too. Typically between 6 and 8 sessions are required for optimal results.
Sessions should be done every 2-3 weeks in order to achieve your wanted goal and keep your skin healthy and luminous. Contact Skinnovation today to learn more about carbon laser peels.
Recovery Period and Results
No downtime is typically experienced with this treatment, which means that you can immediately return to your job or any other everyday activity. You will feel a slight warming sensation on your skin, as well as a light prickling feeling that some patients may describe as slightly uncomfortable, however the process is usually painless.

- Is it safe?
Laser hair removal is proven to be extremely safe. All of the technicians at our clinic are certified and experienced laser professionals.
- How many treatments will I need?
We normally recommend around 8 to 10 treatments depending on the area treated. On facial hairs, around 10 to 15 treatments are required. The amount of treatments required will also vary from person to person, as each individual reacts to laser treatment in a different way.Treatments are done 4-6 weeks apart and must be done consistently for ultimate results.
- Are all hairs being removed on each session?
No. This is because the hair growth has different cycles. At each treatment session, only hairs in the Anagen phase (active growth phase) will be destroyed. Not all hairs will be in the same phase at the same time, hence why we recommend treatment every 4 to 6 weeks, to make sure all hairs get removed.
- Does it hurt?
This will vary from one individual to another. Most people find the discomfort to be minimal and associate the sensation to a rubber band flicking on the skin. We use the Zimmer cooling device to make sure treatment is as comfortable as possible.
- How do I prepare for my treatment?
Before you come for your laser appointment, it is recommended that you shave the areas treated two nights before the treatment. The shorter the hair, the better results you will get. This is because we need all of the laser energy to go down to the hair follicle, instead of being dispersed on hairs sitting on the surface. The only exception is on womens facial area. In this case, no preparation is required. The area treated must not have been waxed or plucked for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment as hair need to be existent inside hair follicle. This also applies to bleached hairs as very light hairs will not respond to treatment.
- What should I expect immediately after treatment?
Most people straight after treatment will experience erythema (redness – as in a mild sunburn) and edema (slight swelling of hair follicles that will look like little bumps). These reactions are completely normal and will subside in a few hours, however, they can persist for a few days in some clients. Applying Aloe Vera or any cooling gels to the area treated will assist in helping this reaction.
- Can I do laser hair removal over tattoos?
No. The laser targets any kind of pigment and will remove tattoos. We will carefully work around any tattoos in the area to be treated.
- Does it work on blonde/ grey hair?
The laser light is attracted to the pigment in the hair, therefore it works best on dark hairs. Blonde hairs and grey hairs do not respond to treatment.
