What is a Carbon Laser Facial?

Exclusively at glowMD Laser MedSpa – Our new Carbon Laser Facial that gives your complexion a clear, smooth and radiant glow.

Carbon Laser Facials are a revolutionary, non-invasive, painless with virtually no-downtime procedure that helps rejuvenate the appearance of aging and damaged skin. It gently removes the top layer of skin, leaving an amazing glow with a vibrant, youthful complexion.

Also known as a China Doll Laser Facial, Hollywood Peel, Black Doll Laser Facial or Charcoal Black Doll Facial, this gentle procedure is safe on all skin types. It is a great way to get a quick skin refresher without the longer downtime associated with other laser procedures. It evens skin tone, reducing appearance of pigment, fine lines, and acne scars.

How do Hollywood stars, models, and media personalities keep their skin glowing and unblemished year after year? This and many of our other laser skin treatments can leave you looking and feeling your best following the procedure. With this treatment, you’ll benefit from a procedure that has given many of our patients the results they want, through a safe procedure.

How it works.
We’ll apply a layer of liquid carbon to your face (or body), allowing it to penetrate deeply into your pores and let it dry. The carbon bonds with any debris that might be present, like dead skin cells, contaminants and oil.

We’ll then pass a laser across the surface of your skin. Because the laser light is super attracted to carbon particles, its energy and heat is absorbed by the carbon paste destroying the particles in your pores.

Light from the laser is attracted to the carbon. The carbon absorbs the light energy. The reaction causes a mini explosion. The explosion pushes the energy, in the form of heat, deep into the layers of the skin where elastin and collagen are activated and cells begin producing anew. Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, as the explosion occurs the carbon is vaporized along with any dirt, oil or dead skin cells. Sounds kind of scary, with all the explosions and vaporizing, but don’t worry. There’s very little discomfort or pain. The sensation has been described as a mild tingling or very slight pinch.

Who can benefit from this treatment?

For those who want to combat the signs of aging, Carbon Laser Facials can rejuvenate your skin by:

  • Reducing the signs of premature aging
  • Improving skin integrity and radiance
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Increasing skin tone and texture
  • Stimulating collagen growth for firmer, plumper skin
  • Reducing oily skin or exfoliating dry skin
  • Erasing or fading yellow/brown pigmentation
  • Shrinking scars (must be young scars of a small diameter).

Which celebrities use them?

A-listers Kim Kardashian, who is also a fan of the vampire facial, is said to get a carbon laser facial. Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston, both exes of Brad Pitt, are reported to have them done.

No matter by what name you might know it, the principle is the same. CLF (carbon laser facial) is a non-ablative laser skin treatment that uses the conductive qualities of carbon to quickly and painlessly exfoliate, cleanse, clear and tighten pores, brighten and even-out skin tone and activate a deeply rejuvenating skin reaction that produces skin that is smooth, plump and radiant!

Carbon Laser Facials are safe and effective for all types of acne and can:

  • Gently clear your pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads
  • Eliminates the need to extract comedones
  • Simultaneously targets acnebacteria and shrinks your sebaceous glands for reduced oil production, congestion and outbreaks
  • Decreases cyst size, papules and nodules

What can I expect?
Your skin will feel immediately smoother and look instantly refreshed. Better still, there’s zero downtime! You can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment – your skin may appear slightly red but this should disappear within a few hours. We recommend you use SPF 30+ and avoid abrasive exfoliates or other invasive skin treatments for a few days.

How long do results last?
It will depend on the condition of your skin, your skin type and your lifestyle.

You’ll probably notice results after a single treatment. However, for long-term results, we recommend regular treatments – 4-6 treatments are optimal, spaced 2-4 weeks apart.

Please note: If you’ve recently had dermal filler or toxin treatments, we’ll recommend you wait a minimum of 2 weeks before undergoing Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation.

Will it hurt?
No! The treatment is gentle, non-invasive and painless. You’ll probably hear a small pulse as we target the carbon particles in your pores with the laser. Our clients describe the feeling as warm or prickly but not painful.
