The Charcoal Laser Facial is a cosmetic miracle. This cosmetic procedure is also known by other names: Hollywood peel, Black Doll Laser, and Carbon Laser Facial.
The Charcoal Laser Facial was also once referred to as the China Doll Facial. It has been a very popular treatment throughout Asia for a long time. This is because it was a safe laser treatment that offered patients brighter, more radiant skin and deep layer rejuvenation with less risk of hyper/hypopigmentation, especially for people with darker skin types.
The Charcoal Laser Facial is an innovative laser resurfacing treatment that utilizes focused light beams to treat skin imperfections. This procedure regulates skin tone and helps in the treatment of congested skin. It also removes skin pigmentation which develops for a number of different reasons, including, sun damage, inflammation, hormonal changes, acne, and reaction to medications.
Simplifying things, liquid carbon is applied to the face and then blasted off with a laser in this non-invasive treatment. Laser and blasting off sound very technical and horrifying. But this procedure is exactly the opposite. This is a safe procedure, relatively simple, and performed by trained treatment providers, which is why it is so popular worldwide in the first place.
Like we already said, this is a non-invasive procedure.
Once the charcoal preparation is evenly distributed on the skin, a focused light beam is administered for a precisely targeted area.
The carbon particles actively absorb light. A vacuum suction then gently removes them, along with damaged cells found in the upper layers of the skin.
The simultaneous generation of thermal energy stimulates the synthesis of fresh collagen and the promotion of a healthy-looking complexion. Skin structure is visibly strengthened and even opened pores purified and cleared.
The laser carbon peel procedure takes a relatively short time to finish. The laser carbon peel is a multi-part process that takes around 30 minutes from start to finish. This is also why it is referred to as a lunchtime peel. At Alka Cosmetic and Dermatology, we strictly follow medical standards for all procedures. This is a sample procedure:
1) Our nurse will cleanse your face, to begin with. This ensures that dirt, foreign particles, and makeup are removed for complete efficacy of the procedure. Your doctor will spread a layer of liquid carbon onto your face. The carbon absorbs oil, dirt, and dead skin cells from deep within the pores.
2) You’ll wait for about 10 minutes for the liquid carbon to dry.
3) After the carbon has dried, your doctor will give you eye shields to protect your eyes from the laser.
Your doctor will pass a laser, such as the Nd: YAG, over the skin on a low-energy setting. This heats up the carbon, binding it to the epidermis.
The benefit of getting your procedure done at Alka Cosmetic and Dermatology is that we use the Picosecond laser instead of the Nd: YAG laser. As a non-medical person, all you need to know is that the Picosecond laser is so much more effective and efficient than the Nd: YAG laser.
4) If you have very sensitive skin or dark patches like melasma, your doctor may recommend skipping the heating step. The laser also heats up subdermal tissue, boosting collagen and plumping up fine lines.
5) On a higher-energy setting, the laser will be used to fragment the liquid carbon into tiny particles.
6) The carbon, as well as the debris and impurities it contains, are removed.
7) Your doctor may also apply a hydrating moisturizer and sunscreen to your skin after treatment.
These are the benefits of the Charcoal Laser Facial procedure:
a) Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
b) Tightens dilated pores
c) Deep Exfoliation of the Skin
d) Reduces acne, scars, and post-acne discoloration
e) Removes dead skin cells from the superficial epidermal layer
f) As the heat is pulsed deep into the skin, the skin’s natural healing mechanisms are activated also in the deeper layers of the skin.
g) Stimulates collagen growth
h) Improves skin texture
i) Lift and tighten the skin
j) Clears pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads
The benefit of getting your procedure done at Alka Cosmetic and Dermatology is that we use the Picosecond laser instead of the Nd: YAG laser. As a non-medical person, all you need to know is that the Picosecond laser is so much more safe, effective, and efficient than the Nd: YAG laser.
Nd: YAG lasers are optically pumped using a flash tube or laser diodes. These are one of the most common types of laser and are used for many different applications. Nd: YAG lasers typically emit light with a wavelength of 1064 nm, in the infrared.
In comparison, the technology used by the Picosecond laser is an improved version of the Q-switched laser. In this version, the speed of the energy-charged light beams emitted by the Picosecond lasers is faster than nanosecond Q-switched lasers by 10 times.
This is the most innovative medical laser available today in the market. The picosecond laser is 100 times faster than
traditional nanosecond technology. A pulse with a flattop profile distributes the high-energy radiation particularly evenly, which destroys the target structures without affecting the surrounding tissue and significantly injuring the epidermis.
Other treatment providers in Kathmandu still use old technology, the Nd: YAG laser. Thus, Alka Cosmetic and Dermatology ensures you get the highest standards of quality care and treatment that the cosmetic-medical industry can provide.
It will depend on the condition of your skin type and lifestyle. You’ll notice results after your first session, but desired results take multiple sessions. However, for long-term results, we recommend regular treatments. Four to six treatments are optimal, spaced 2-4 weeks apart.
We at Alka Cosmetic and Dermatology adhere to the strictest standard of quality control and service personalization. Furthermore, we use a superior version of the laser beam to ensure our clients get the best of the cosmetic technology.
Despite all these clear benefits, our procedure is priced generously. As of now, we have priced the procedure at only Rs. 5000 per session. Consult with the service provider or contact our clinic for price-related inquiries.
There is little to no time needed for recovery after the treatment. Moderate aftercare includes using sun protection (SPF 50 or greater), avoiding hot water, swimming, and hot tubs. Makeup can be applied in just a matter of a few hours after the treatment.
Apart from a slight skin reddening and tingling sensation, there are no side effects after a laser carbon peel. In some rare instances itching, flaking and rashes might develop; most usually resolves in a few days. Nonetheless, it is important to have this procedure done by an experienced and licensed professional. This is another reason to get your procedure done at Alka Cosmetic and Dermatology.
