Carbon Corrective Fractional Treatment
Carbon Corrective Fractional Treatment (CC)
Carbon Fractional also known as Carbon Peel is a non-invasive, completely painless laser-based skin treatment that quickly and effectively treats a variety of skin imperfections, with no side effects or patient downtime and with immediate results.
The Carbon Fractional is a two-stage process. During the first stage, a carbon lotion is applied to the skin. Then a 1060nm wavelength laser reaches the dermis, creating controlled thermal damage to stimulate the healing process. This causes collagen, elastin and fibroblast production and remodelling to rejuvenate the skin and target fine lines and wrinkles. The heat created also induces remodelling and contraction of the pores, making it an ideal treatment for those with enlarged pores. When targeted at acne, this high energy treatment goes straight to the acne’s membrane and destroys it, reducing acne and its related inflammation.
The second part of the treatment comprises the removal of the carbon lotion, with the short pulse Q-Switched Laser. This laser breaks up the carbon into fine particles and then absorbs them, by destroying the carbon and removing the dead skin cells, oils and impurities that were bound to it. The skin also receives a deep exfoliation during this second stage, making it 4 times stronger than any other peel on the market, and leaving the skin considerably brighter, and smoother in tone and texture.
The entire treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, and the effects are noticeable straight away. You’ll see an instant brightening of your skin, which will also feel smoother and softer than ever before.
