A carbon peel is a revolutionary laser treatment that is completely painless with minimal-to-zero downtime.
It is highly beneficial for people with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin and acne on the face or body. This treatment is also beneficial if you’re starting to see the effects of sun damage to your skin.
For the five days prior to your procedure avoid using on your face Retinoids, such as Retin-A, Vitamin C, Glycolic acids, and any type of strong cream that could interfere with your treatment. Avoid getting skin treatments at least two weeks prior to your session; these include microdermabrasion and any type of professional or home exfoliation, Botox, Fillers, etc.
- Use Sun Protection
- Refrain from Smoking
Modern laser peel technology is far less troublesome than procedures of the past. After a treatment, the treated area of skin may feel a little warm afterward, and there may be some slight redness. However, the treatment also includes the application of cooling gels or creams that can dissipate these side effects. If the treatment was used to target pigmentation, the pigment may appear darker for a while, and may feel like a slight sunburn for about an hour after the procedure. To reduce your chances of experiencing side effects or to help them disappear, here are some tips for carbon laser peel aftercare.
AVOID Active Ingredients and Chemicals Before and After
AVOID Heavy Exercising
