What is the carbon laser facial?
The Carbon Laser Facial is one of the most advanced treatments for skin imperfections and promotes a smooth and glowing complexion. The Carbon Laser Peel Treatment at KLNIK helps reduce fine lines & wrinkles, can lighten age spots and dark spots, fade freckles, shrink pores, removes blackheads and oil flow and kills bacteria reducing signs of acne. The process is non-invasive and pain-free!
It’s incredible results and subsequent fame are derived from the use of carbon. The black substance acts as a target for laser light, which is attracted to darker colours guiding the laser to the target areas. When the carbon is applied and massaged into the face, it enters the pores. Once hit by laser light, the carbon heats up and ‘explodes,’ removing built-up dead skin and damaging the inner walls of the pore. The heat generated induces collagen growth, reducing pore size, and improving skin texture, which would otherwise not be possible without the use of carbon.
