Carbon peel for face

In Beauty on December, 25 2023

A carbon peel (also known as carboxytherapy) facial is a cosmetic treatment that uses carbon dioxide (carbonic acid) to improve skin condition and combat a variety of problems including acne, oily skin, fading skin, pigmentation and wrinkles. The carbon peel procedure can be performed in specialised cosmetic clinics and beauty salons by professional beauty therapists.

Here is how the carbon peel procedure is performed:

  1. Skin preparation: First, the facial skin is cleansed of make-up, oils and impurities. This ensures better contact between the skin and the carbon paste.
  2. Application of the carbon paste: A thin layer of special carbon paste is applied to the facial skin. This paste contains carbon dioxide molecules which, when exposed to laser or light, begin to release bubbles.
  3. laser or light pulse: After applying the carbon paste to the skin, the specialist applies laser or light to the facial area. The laser or light creates heat, which stimulates the skin’s regeneration processes.
  4. Removal of carbon paste and impurities: After the procedure, the carbon paste and carbon dioxide microcrystals are removed from the skin. This may also include cleansing the skin and applying soothing and moisturising products.

The benefits of a carbon peel facial include shrinking pores, improving skin texture, evening out skin tone, reducing wrinkles and pigmentation, and stimulating collagen production. However, the procedure may require several sessions to achieve optimal results, and skin response may vary from person to person.

Before undergoing a carbon peel, it is important to consult with a qualified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist to assess your skin condition and decide if the procedure is right for you.
