A carbon lotion is applied to the skin and allowed to dry over a period of 15 minutes. Then, the Pastelle laser is used to heat and cause an implosion of the carbon particles the laser light is absorbed by the carbon paste focusing the laser energy on the epidermis. As the laser moves across the skin the carbon paste is gently vacuumed up, exfoliating the skin and removing any debris in pores.
