Acne and oily skin have been a long-term problem for people all around the world especially in South East Asia, causing many to suffer from acne. The effects of acne may not seem very serious, but over time they can prove to be rather tricky to treat. If left without treatment, it can affect the health of your skin, not to mention scarring. Some scars caused by acne are temporary, but there will be a higher risk for a permanent scar if you leave it untreated. The Carbon Laser Peel procedure has become increasingly popular in the recent years. What is the Carbon Laser Peel Procedure? Read on to find out.
How Does it Work?
A thin layer of carbon is spread over the area that is to be treated. After, the carbon is absorbed into the skin. A laser then moves across the area, vacuuming up the carbon particles. As the carbon particles are vacuumed, the skin is exfoliated and the debris covering the pores is removed. The laser also targets the deeper skin layers and stimulates collagen growth. As the laser is emitted, you will experience a warm sensation and hear tiny popping sounds. This is perfectly normal as it helps deliver the heat to your skin.
What Results Should You Expect?
The results of this treatment are almost instantaneous. You will notice that your pores feel unclogged and smaller, as well as the fact that your skin has become smoother and brighter. Your skin tone will look even due to the accuracy of the laser. All-in-all you should feel fresh, smooth, and radiant.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Carbon Laser Peel is safe and does not cause any serious complications. The procedure takes a maximum of ten minutes. Once completed, you can go about your day as per normal. The only side effect that some people notice is a slight redness over the treated area. This redness should dissipate within a couple of hours. We do recommend that you keep the treated area hydrated with a moisturiser. We also recommend that you avoid prolonged direct sunlight exposure.
Should I Account for any Recovery Time?
There is no need to plan any recovery time after this procedure. Upon completion of the treatment, we will apply a blend of creams to the area in order to soothe, protect, and moisturise the skin. After this, patients can return to their normal daily habits without consequence. This makes Carbon Laser Peel treatment very viable as all it requires is that you set aside ten minutes of your day every two or three weeks.
