What does the treatment involve?
CONSULTATION: At the start of any Facial treatment a thorough consultation will take place, where our expert aesthetician will evaluate your skin and discuss with you your specific skin needs and concerns.
PROCESS: During the treatment our expert aesthetician will remove your makeup with a non-irritating and effective facial wipe. A layer of liquid carbon is then applied to the skin , where it penetrates deep into the pores and left to dry for 10 minutes. The carbon bonds with any debris that might be present, like dead skin cells, contaminants and oils in the pores. The laser then blasts the carbon away, with the light highly attracted to carbon particles, zapping away dead skin cells, blackheads and oils trapped in the pores. The result is softer, radiant skin with reduced pore size and a more even skin tone.
TIME: The procedure takes 30 to 40 minutes.
FINISHING: After the procedure you might notice redness for the first few hours after the treatment, this is normal and will subside.
NUMBER OF TREATMENTS NEEDED: The number of treatments required vary per individual, as results are dependent on your skin type. As a guide, carbon laser treatments usually require 6-8 treatments spaced 2 weeks apart.
