Carbon Laser Facial 



What is a Carbon Laser Facial?

This facial aims to give you clear, porcelain-like skin by targeting a number of blemishes that could be impacting your skin. These conditions may include:Skin redness, acne and acne scarring, blackheads and open pores, skin oiliness, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation issues and uneven tones. This treatment also encourages the reproduction of collagen.

How does this treatment work?

It works by using  a combination of the tattoo laser machine and carbon cream applied to the client. The carbon serum bonds with impurities inside the patients’ pores, and as the laser passes over the patients’ skin it causes a reaction that passes the energy deep into the pores that helps stimulate the production of collagen while removing impurities deep within, such as dirt, oil and dead skin cells. It is very important to keep you skin protected and free from sun damage before your treatment.

Who is it for?

Carbon Laser Faicals can be done on all skin types and both men and women. The number of treatments required for the best results depends on the quality of your skin as well as your individual concerns. We will advise you accordingly during your free skin consultation.


What can I expect/what are the benefits?

You may experience some sensitivity after your treatment but this should go away within 2-24 hours. You will notice a change in your skin pretty much immediately, depending on the number of treatments you get, this facial can bring out a number of benefits in your skin, these being; noticeably tighter and more smooth skin overall, more vibrant and hydrated skin, a reduction in blackheads and whiteheads, a more balanced complexion with less skin redness, improving skin tone and skin texture,improvement in acne and reduction in severity of acne scarring and stimulation of collagen production for improved skin firmness


How many treatments will I need?

Is there aftercare?

There is virtually no downtime after this facial and pretty much no pain either. All clients need to be using a facial sunscreen with an spf of 30 or above.You can expect to feel a warm, slightly prickly feeling in the treatment area but these facials are designed to be ultra-gentle and non-invasive and there are no side effects to be concerned about. If you are pairing this facial with other skin treatments please let us know so we can go through any side effects you may have. Don’t use any products containing retinol for at least five days after treatment, do not exfoliate or use any abrasive or invasive skin treatments for at least one week, if you have oily skin, use products designed to combat acne to maintain optimum results, use products containing collagen, collagen supplements, or follow a collagen-boosting diet if you have photoaged skin or fine lines.
