The The Carbon Laser Facial also know as the "Charcoal facial" or "Hollywood facial" is an advanced laser skin treatment . It promotes a smooth, healthy and glowing complexion, loved by celebs including Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Anniston and Angelina Jolie, hence the HOLLYWOOD name.
But it’s not just celebrities who love this treatment. A 2022 paper published in the journal Medicina
found that Carbon peel laser facial is an effective and safe treatment for patients with acne and can help reduce inflammation and sebum build up, by removing dirt, oil and bacteria found within the acne skin.
A layer of liquid carbon will be applied to the face, this penetrates deep into the skin’s surface. Pulses of laser light blast the carbon particles away to create a more youthful, even complexion.
In addition, the laser energy stimulates the fibroblast cells, leading to increased production of new collagen and elastin, this improves the texture and appearance of the skin’s surface, evening out discolouration and shrinking pores, whilst reducing the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.
The treatment is pain-free and very low-risk, with most people only displaying some very mild redness after treatment.
The treatment is suitable for most people, and whilst it won’t remove deep wrinkles, it will give the skin a collagen boost, reducing fine lines, shrinking pores and improving acne (it can also be used on backne!). Most people will notice an immediate brightness and radiancy to their skin post treatment.
