Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Our Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation, otherwise known as the Hollywood Peel or lunchtime face lift, starts by application of a medical grade carbon liquid on the skin. The laser is then applied and heats, then vaporizes the carbon. It takes a 15 micron layer of skin off, leaving an amazing glow with a vibrant, youthful complexion. People in Hollywood do this just before the red carpet. No downtime, no discomfort. It’s a great treatment for acne, especially active breakouts.
Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation is a no downtime procedure. There is no pain with the procedure and it takes about 10 minutes. The procedure can be repeated in 2-4 week intervals.

What can be expected after the Carbon Laser Skin Rejuvenation is:

· Improvement in pore size
· Improvement in active acne
· Even skin tone
· Collagen stimulation
· A cleaner complexion

At your initial consultation we will advise you of the recommended number of treatments required.

Are there any side effects?
The skin can appear slightly red after treatment but that usually disappears within a few hours.
