Carbon Laser @ ‘Ebony Laser Peel’
Welcome to a popular treatment of stars and celebrities alike. This is a common ‘lunch time’ procedure that is effective in restoring damaged and problematic skin. The SPECTRA XT laser system is the latest version of the Q switched NdYAG which provides an amazing platform for CARBON LASER treatment.
This 20-30 minute treatment will leave your skin invigorated, reduces pore size, improves skin discolouration and uneven skin tone,reduces oil/sebum production and aids in acne treatment.
At first, skin will be cleansed and a layer of carbon liquid will be applied to the skin and left on for about 10 minutes to get absorbed into pores. Once dry, a gentle yet effective laser setting is used to vaporise the carbon while removing the very superficial layer of dead skin cells as well as cleaning and shrinking pores. The thermal effect of the laser stimulates connective tissue growth within our skin while the carbon allows for effective exfoliation of dead skin cells and pore cleansing and shrinkage.
There is no downtime associated with this comfortable treatment, so you may opt to have this treatment during your lunch break and go back looking rejuvenated with a healthy pink glow. As with any rejuvenation treatment, a few sessions may be required to achieve optimum results.
Even skin needs a little polishing and this is the very effect of microdermabrasion. Using a precious diamond tip, this treatment gently buffs away the dead layer of skin cells to reveal fresh, new skin cells. Along with the dead cells, superficial pigmentation and debri is removed using a gentle vacuum suction. This 20-30 minute session, is comfortable and skin is left rejuvenated, dewy smooth and with a pink healthy glow. This treatment works well on acne scars and over time scars appear less visible and smoother.
