Laser Carbon Peel Treatment

The laser carbon peel, also known as the “Hollywood Peel”, is a non-invasive laser treatment that uses a carbon-based solution to improve the appearance and health of the skin.

It uses the Lutronic Spectra™ Q-switched Laser to target various skin concerns. This treatment is popular for its minimal downtime and ability to provide a refreshed, rejuvenated complexion.

What is the Lutronic Spectra™ Q-switched Laser?

The Lutronic Spectra™ Q-switched Laser is a technology widely used to address skin concerns. This laser emits high-intensity light pulses at very short durations, targeting specific skin layers without causing thermal damage to surrounding tissues. The Q-switching mechanism allows the laser to generate a powerful burst of energy, breaking down skin particles and stimulating collagen production.

Indications for Laser Carbon Peel Treatment

The laser carbon peel is recommended for several common skin concerns. Here are the main reasons to consider this treatment:

  • Skin Acne
    Targets bacteria, reduces inflammation, and unclogs pores.
  • Acne Scars and Pores
    Stimulates collagen, smooths scars, and reduces pore size.
  • Dull Skin

  • Body & Back Acne
    Reduces inflammation and prevents breakouts.

Areas Eligible for Laser Carbon Peel Treatment

Suitable for Anyone Above 15 Years Old

Teenagers (15+)

Ideal for controlling acne, reducing breakouts, and promoting clearer skin.


Addresses ageing, acne, and uneven skin tone. Smooths fine lines, reduces wrinkles and improves skin texture and radiance.

The Procedure of Laser Carbon Peel Treatment

The laser carbon peel follows a specific procedure that enhances skin appearance and health. Here’s how it is typically carried out:


The skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oils, and dirt, ensuring a clean surface for treatment.

Carbon Application

A layer of liquid carbon is applied to the entire face. This carbon acts as a photo enhancer and penetrates the pores.

Laser Treatment

The Q-switched Laser is used to heat and cause an implosion of carbon particles. The laser light is highly attracted to the carbon particles, and when the laser passes over the area, it destroys the carbon, taking dead skin cells, contaminants, and oil with it.

Multiple Passes

Several passes over the area might be made with the laser to ensure optimal results. Each pass helps to reduce imperfections and stimulates collagen production, leading to skin rejuvenation.

Cleaning and Soothing

After the laser treatment, the face is cleaned again to remove any remnants of carbon and then a soothing cream or serum is applied to help calm the skin and promote healing.

Benefits of Laser Carbon Peel Treatment

The laser carbon peel offers various benefits contributing to its popularity in cosmetic skin care. Here are some of the key advantages:

  • Clearer Skin
    Reduces acne and deep-cleans pores for a healthier complexion.
  • Smoother Texture
    Boosts collagen to smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
  • Reduced Pore Size

Downtime Expectations For Laser Carbon Peel Treatment

The laser carbon peel is a popular non-invasive procedure that offers minimal downtime compared to more intensive treatments. Patients often return to their regular activities shortly after the session, but they should anticipate mild, short-lived effects.

Mild Redness and Sensitivity

After the treatment, the skin may appear slightly red and feel sensitive for a few hours. This effect resembles mild sunburn and typically fades within a day for most patients.

Temporary Tightness and Flaking

A sense of skin tightness is common, often accompanied by light flaking or peeling. These are signs of the skin rejuvenating itself and should subside within a week.

Aftercare and Maintenance

Proper aftercare following a laser carbon peel maximises the benefits and minimises potential side effects. Here are some key aftercare tips and maintenance strategies:

  • Sun Protection
    Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily and avoid direct sunlight as much as possible to protect the treated skin from UV damage.
  • Gentle Skin Care
    Use mild, non-irritating skin care products to cleanse and moisturise the skin. Avoid harsh scrubs or exfoliating agents for at least a week after treatment.
  • Avoid Makeup
    Avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours post-treatment to allow the skin to breathe and recover.
  • Hydration
    Keep the skin well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using a good moisturiser.
  • Follow-up Treatments
    Multiple sessions may be recommended depending on the skin condition and desired outcomes.
  • Monitoring Skin Changes
    Pay attention to how your skin responds to the treatment and report any unusual changes.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Is there any specific age limit for undergoing Laser Carbon Peel?

    There is no specific age limit for undergoing a laser carbon peel, but it is most commonly performed on teens above 15 years old for controlling acne, and adults who wish to address skin concerns such as ageing or acne.

    Can Laser Carbon Peel be combined with other cosmetic procedures?

    The laser carbon peel can be safely combined with other laser treatments as part of a comprehensive treatment program to address various skin concerns. However, it should not be combined with other types of peels or microdermabrasion to avoid over-treating the skin.

    After the treatment, avoid strenuous activities and heavy sweating for at least 24-48 hours to prevent irritation and for the skin to stabilise.
