Are you looking for a flawless complexion? Want to have that Porcelain Doll look? A treatment with no pain or downtime? It sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. Our new Carbon Laser Facial will bring your face to perfection quickly and painlessly.
Carbon Laser Facials are a revolutionary, non-invasive procedure that rejuvenates the appearance of aging and damaged skin. It gently removes the top layer of skin, leaving an amazing glow with a vibrant, youthful complexion.
Also known as a China Doll Laser Facial, this gentle procedure is safe on all skin types. It is a great way to get a quick skin refresher without the longer downtime associated with other laser procedures. It evens skin tone, reducing the appearance of pigment, fine lines, and acne scars.
The Carbon Laser Facial Procedure
We’ll apply a layer of liquid carbon to your face and or neck, allowing it to penetrate deeply into your pores and let it dry. The carbon bonds with any debris that might be present, like dead skin cells, contaminants and oil. We’ll then pass a laser across the surface of your skin. Because the laser light is super attracted to carbon particles, its energy and heat is absorbed by the carbon paste destroying the particles in your pores.
Light from the laser is attracted to the carbon. The carbon absorbs the light energy. The reaction causes a mini-explosion. The explosion pushes the energy, in the form of heat, deep into the layers of the skin where elastin and collagen are activated and cells begin producing anew. Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, as the explosion occurs the carbon is vaporized along with any dirt, oil or dead skin cells.
Who can benefit from this treatment?
For those who want to combat the signs of aging, Carbon Laser Facials can rejuvenate your skin by:
- Reducing the signs of premature aging

Carbon Laser Facials are safe and effective for all types of acne and can:
- Gently clear your pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads

What can I expect?
Your skin will feel immediately smoother and look instantly refreshed. You can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment – your skin may appear slightly red but this should disappear within a few hours. We recommend you use SPF 30+ and avoid abrasive exfoliates or other invasive skin treatments for a few days.
How long do results last?
It will depend on the condition of your skin, your skin type and your lifestyle. You’ll probably notice results after a single treatment.* However, for long-term results, we recommend regular treatments – 4-6 treatments are optimal, spaced 2-4 weeks apart.* Everyone wants radiant skin, but you may not have enough hours in your busy day! If this describes how you feel, then this treatment is perfect for you! The benefits to your skin are priceless.
