Carbon laser therapy - the revolutionary laser treatment against blemished skin


Carbon laser therapy is an excellent way to peel and cleanse your skin. It provides an immediate, refreshed appearance and makes the skin look softer, smoother and firmer.

What is the definition of blemished skin?

Impure or blemished skin can mean many things: clogged skin and pigmentation that can develop for various reasons, including sun damage, inflammation, hormonal changes, acne or reaction to some medications.

What is the carbon laser treatment?

Carbon laser therapy, also known as “China Doll Peel” (named after its porcelain doll, like a finish on the skin), is an innovative laser resurfing treatment that uses focused laser beams to treat skin impurities. The Carbon Laser treatment ensures a balanced skin appearance and a fresh and even shine. As the treated skin regenerates, the appearance of uneven spots and pigments is visibly clearer and more even in texture.

How does the treatment work?

In the carbon laser peeling treatment, a thin carbon layer is applied to the skin surface where it penetrates deep into the pores. Once evenly distributed, a focused laser beam is emitted for a precise and targeted area. The carbon particles actively absorb the light before a vacuum suction gently removes them, along with damaged cells, impurities and oil in the upper layers of the skin.

The simultaneous generation of heat energy stimulates the synthesis of fresh collagen and promotes healthy looking skin. The skin structure is visibly strengthened and even opened pores are cleaned.

How much of downtime should I expect?

There is no downtime after a carbon laser peel and the results can even be visible after one session. Depending on your skin condition and the desired results, one or more treatment cycles are recommended.

How often and how many Carbon Laser Peel treatments do I need?

In my practice, I recommend repeating the treatment every 2-3 weeks. This period allows the regeneration of collagen and elastin of the skin tissue. The effectiveness of the treatment is determined for the individual, but a course of 2-6 treatments leads to better results. 

Are there possible side effects?

There are no side effects and the skin glows immediately after treatment. Carbon laser therapy is a very safe and innovative treatment.

Is the treatment painful?

There is no pain with the carbon laser therapy. During the procedure there may be slight tingling and heat on the skin, similar to IPL treatment. This is normal, while the laser removes the thin carbon layer.

Can the advantages of this special treatment be summarized?

1. Deep face cleaning

Carbon has the ability to absorb oil and impurities deep in the pores. When the laser is passed over the treatment area, it targets and destroys the carbon particles, taking absorbed material with it.

2. Face peeling

Because the carbon is targeted by the laser, dead skin cells and blackheads are killed and the skin is effectively exfoliated. The result is softer, radiant skin with reduced pore size and a more even skin tone.

3. Rejuvenation

Carbon peelings also targets the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which in turn creates firmer skin, reduces fine lines and wrinkles and tightens the skin.

4 Acne and oil destruction

The heat generated by carbon peelings has two additional advantages. It reduces the P.Acnes bacteria responsible for acne, enables better management of pimples and outbreaks and shrinks sebaceous glands (oil-producing glands), which leads to lower oil production and thus reduces congestion in the pores. Treatments can be performed on any part of the body, including the back and chest.
