Laser Carbon Peel - Gentle but Mighty

The beauty industry is worth an impressive $532 billion – which is no surprise since 75% of women admit to buying skincare products in the hopes of looking younger.

Many women (and men) wish they could turn back the hands of time and reclaim younger, tighter looking skin. The first signs of aging show in wrinkles on your face.

Have you tried everything from creams and lotions to oils and invasive treatments to no avail?

Search no more! Here, you'll learn everything you need to know about the Carbon Peel treatment and why you should try it in 2020.

Ditch those creams and let's get into it!

What is Carbon Peel?

If you've never heard of the Carbon Peel process you might have the misconception that it hurts. Despite its name, Carbon Peel is an extremely safe and effective way of refreshing and rejuvenating the skin.

It also goes by the name Black Doll Peep and Hollywood Peel.

The Carbon Peel is a laser treatment recommended for people with oily or dull skin, body acne, enlarged pores, and blackheads. Using liquid activated charcoal, the treatment is gentle, with minimal downtime.

A layer of liquid carbon is applied to the skin and penetrates deep into your body's pores. The laser used is attracted to the carbon particles. When passed over the skin, the laser light finds and destroys the carbon along with oils and dead skin cells.


Benefits of the Carbon Peel Process

Are you curious about whether Carbon Peel is right for you and the benefits you can expect? Let's take a look at the many ways Carbon Peel can improve the look, feel, and health of your skin.

Target and Destroy Oil and Acne

It's already been stated that the Carbon Peel process is most beneficial to those with oily skin. If you're prone to acne breakouts or blackheads, you can also benefit from Carbon Peel.

Carbon Peel helps get to the root of the problem – literally. The process helps reduce the presence of bacteria that causes acne. It also shrinks sebaceous glands which are responsible for oil production.

Oil is to blame for clogging pores which cause blackheads and acne. By eliminating the amount of oil on your skin and bacteria, you'll see fewer outbreaks and pimples.

For some people, outbreaks occur on body parts other than the face. If you suffer from body acne on your back or chest, Carbon Peel can address these areas as well.


One of the main reasons people get facials is to exfoliate their skin.

Exfoliation removes old, dead skin from the surface layer allowing new, healthier skin to show through. Exfoliation is a major part of achieving younger, healthier-looking skin.

The laser used during Carbon Peel targets dead skin and blackheads, destroying them upon contact. Once this dead layer of skin is removed, your skin will appear softer and more radiant.

Continued Carbon peel treatments can actually reduce the size of pores, preventing dirt, oil, and bacteria from entering the skin. Over time, you'll also experience an evener skin tone.


When it comes to aging, one of the major complaints reported by women is that they wish their skin was tighter and less wrinkled. The Carbon peel process can address these concerns as well.

Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in your body. It's located in your muscles, bones, and skin and works to hold your body together. Collagen production directly affects the appearance and elasticity of your skin.

Carbon Peel works to stimulate your body's carbon production by targeting the deepest layers of the skin where this beneficial protein is found. This stimulation promotes firmer, plumper looking skin. It's also said to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

A Carbon Peel treatment will leave your skin feeling tighter and your face glowing!


One of the most basic principles of skincare is regularly cleaning your face. Built-up dirt, oil, and bacteria can easily clog pores, causing breakouts.

Aside from adopting a regular skincare routine at home, a Carbon Peel offers a deeper clean. During the process, carbon reaches deep inside your pores to absorb oil and bacteria.

Like a magnet, the laser finds the carbon which is attached to the contaminants inside your skin. It then absorbs and destroys them. Any residual particles left are then pulled from your pores and removed.

Carbon Peel provides a deep cleansing that supports and enhances your normal cleansing routine.

What to Expect From Your First Treatment

Knowing the benefits of Carbon Peel is step one. Now it's time to book your appointment and start your journey to healthier, younger-looking skin.

But before you do, you may be wondering what Carbon Peel treatment feels like and what to expect during your first appointment. Let's take a look!

The Carbon Paste

First, your technician will apply a very thin layer of carbon lotion, cream, or paste to your skin. It will set for approximately 15 minutes as it reaches the temperature of your skin.

As the paste dries, it attaches to the dirt, oil, and dead skin cells on the surface of your skin.

The Laser Light

Once the carbon paste is up to temperature and dry, the tech will run a small laser light over your skin. This part of the process is painless.

As the laser passes over your skin and detects the carbon, it creates a mini-explosion. Heat is pushed deep into your pores, killing bacteria and activating collagen production.

On the surface, the laser destroys the carbon particles along with oil, dirt, and dead skill cells.

Most people describe the sensation as warm and tingling. This warmth may last for a short while after the treatment is finished. This is completely normal.

You'll also be surprised at how smooth and plump your skin feels following Carbon Peel. You'll instantly notice a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and tightened pores.

Results are almost instantaneous.

Treat Yourself to Carbon Peel Treatment

Taking care of your skin is an important part of the aging process. Your skin is your body's greatest defense against bacteria and dirt. While adopting a daily skincare routine is important, it's recommended you perform a deeper cleansing periodically.

Carbon Peel is the perfect way to achieve a deep clean that leaves your skin looking and feeling years younger.
