Hollywood Carbon Laser Facial
Our Hollywood Carbon Laser Facial (also known as a Hollywood Carbon Peel) is a popular, results-driven facial favoured by numerous A-list celebrities, including Angelina Jolie and Kim Kardashian. This pain-free, non-invasive treatment has no down-time, making it the ideal lunch-hour beauty fix. It also treats a comprehensive selection of conditions, including improving fine lines and wrinkles, balancing out skin tone and uneven pigmentation, reducing acne and acne scarring and diminishing enlarged pores. It’s also an effective antidote for oily, spot-prone skin, as it shrinks sebaceous glands and eliminates bacteria responsible for spots.
Our Hollywood Carbon Facial involves the application of medical-grade liquid carbon to the face and neck. Your aesthetician then moves a laser device across the face which is drawn to and combusts the carbon particles on the skin’s surface along with dead skin cells, excess oil and bacteria, intensively cleaning the skin. The laser also has a skin re-surfacing effect – vaporising dull, damaged skin cells and encouraging new skin cells to form. Post-treatment
skin looks glowing and healthy and over the next few weeks improvement continues as your skin forms fresh new collagen.
Our Hollywood Carbon Peel is one of our most sought-after skin treatments at our skin clinic in Gerrards Cross. It offers multiple benefits for clients of all ages, from teenagers through to young, middle-age and mature clients wanting to increase collagen production naturally. Results you can expect: Deep-Cleaning: The liquid carbon extracts dirt, oil and cellular debris from deep within the pores, which is vaporised by the laser as it targets the carbon particles, cleaning the skin thoroughly. Exfoliation: As the carbon pigment absorbs the laser’s light it gently yet effectively removes dead cells and impurities deep in the skin pores. Unclogging pores prevents further spots and blackheads forming and reduces the pore size, creating more refined, even-looking skin. Revitalisation: As the carbon particles penetrate the deeper dermis layer of skin, the laser’s heat follows stimulating new collagen formation, helping to plump out wrinkles and fine lines and firm and lift the skin for a more youthful appearance. Less Breakouts: The laser’s light emits heat destroying acne-causing bacteria and shrinking sebaceous glands, in turn reducing spot breakouts.
What to expect
After a personal skin consultation with one of our trained aestheticians to discuss your skin and determine the best treatment plan, your carbon facial can start. Once your skin has been cleansed, a layer of carbon liquid is applied to your face. You’ll be given goggles to wear during the process to shade your eyes from the laser light. The aesthetician will then move the fine laser head across your face, triggering light energy pulses at certain points. The sensation is not painful but feels like a mild pin prick on the skin. Once the treatment is complete, any residue carbon suspension is removed, and a moisturising sunscreen is applied. Spa-licious’ Hollywood Carbon Facial is a short treatment with high-impact results. There’s also no signs you’ve had a facial treatment afterwards, just refreshed, glowing skin, so you’re free to continue your day as usual.
Treatment name FAQs
Q: I have sensitive skin, is the Hollywood Carbon Laser Facial right for me?
This facial is extremely safe and is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. It’s also suitable for, and has the most impact on, skin that has issues, such as excess oil, acne, uneven pigment or brown patches, signs of aging and sun damage. If your skin shows signs of significant sun damage or stubborn wrinkles we may recommend another laser treatment to start with.
Q: How often should I have the Hollywood Carbon Facial?
The Hollywood Carbon Facial works well as an individual treatment – as a skin pick-me-up or to get glowing skin pre-wedding or other special occasion – but best results come from having regular treatments (every 4 to 6 weeks) over a period. This is when Carbon peels make a measurable difference to signs of skin aging and specific conditions, such as acne, acne scarring, enlarged pores and hyperpigmentation (irregular skin tone).
