Acne (Laser Treatment)

Carbon Spectra Laser Peel

The Carbon Spectra Peel is a superficial laser peel used to treat acne and to refresh and brighten the complexion. It delivers quick results for inflammatory acne (red pimples and pustules, but not blackheads).

How does it Work?

A black carbon solution is first applied to the face and left to dry for about ten minutes. Next, a non-ablative laser applies heat as the carbon particles penetrate and exfoliate the skin. Excess sebum and a superficial layer of skin are removed, stimulating the growth of healthy collagen in its place.

How Long Does it Take?

The procedure takes no longer than thirty minutes – and there’s no prep or downtime involved. As with any laser treatment, you should avoid direct sunlight and use sunscreen immediately after treatment – but that’s it.

When Will I See Results?

Most patients see immediate results in skin appearance and their acne starts improving within days. Active acne is reduced, and skin looks refreshed and glowing. Patients look and feel rejuvenated. Maximum results require 2 or 3 treatments spaced a few weeks apart.
