Gangnam Carbon Laser
Carbon Laser Rejuvenation Treatment
Dewy, not shiny. Glow, not grease
Oily skin is a common problem in South East Asia. Excessive production of sebum from the sebaceous glands in the skin can be due to:
- Genetic factors
- Over exposure to sun light
- Excessive hormonal stimulation in times of stress
- Over-cleansing of the face leading to dryness and compensatory oil production
- Inappropriate use of products
- Excessive consumption of dairy products and oily foods
Oily skin often appears shiny and greasy and is unappealing. The over production of sebum can often lead to clogging of pores and be a precursor to white head, black head and acne formation and other skin issues like milia seeds.
The carbon laser treatment has become an increasingly popular way of dealing with issues like oily and acne prone skin.
How does the Gangnam Carbon Laser treatment work?
A thin layer of carbon is spread over the treatment area and is absorbed into the skin. As the laser moves across the skin, the carbon particles are gently vacuumed up, exfoliating the skin and removing the debris in the pores. It also targets deeper layers of your skin to stimulate collagen growth and remove dead cells. You will experience a warm sensation and hear multiple tiny explosions during the treatment. These tiny explosions help to deliver heat to the skin as it exfoliates and unclogs the pores while stimulating the collagen at the same time.
The carbon laser is especially useful for:
- Reducing pore size
- Increased skin renewal
- More even skin tone and texture
- Improved radiance
The treatment takes 5 to 10 mins and can be done every 2 to 3 weeks with no downtime
After completion of the laser treatment we will apply a blend of creams to help soothe, protect and moisturise your skin. Other than mild redness, most patients have no side effects to this treatment and can return to their normal daily activities. Special precaution is advised to avoid prolong direct exposure to sunlight after this treatment.
