V Carbon Peel
What is a VCarbon Peel?
V Carbon Peel is a modular system made up of 2 products (V Carbon Film and V Carbon Spray) that allows to make Medium or Deep peeling treatments depending on the patient’s needs. This is possible thanks to the natural exfoliating agents:
- Ferulic Acid
- Mandelic Acid
- Lactic Acid
with manageable regenerating and brightening qualities and to the antioxidant components:
- Black Ginger extract
- Licorice extract
and to the famous properties of the Carbon itself – purifying and detoxing.
A carbon laser peel typically involves the following steps.
Carbon lotion. First, we will apply a dark-colored cream with a high carbon content to your skin. The lotion is an exfoliating treatment that helps prepare the skin for the next steps. You will sit with it on your face for several minutes to let it dry. As the lotion dries, it bonds with dirt, oil, and other contaminants on the surface of your skin.
Warming laser. Depending on your skin type, we may start with one type of laser to warm your skin. We will pass the laser over your face, which will heat the carbon in the lotion and cause it to absorb impurities on your skin.
Pulsed laser. The final step is a pulsed laser that we use to break down the carbon. The laser destroys the carbon particles and any oil, dead skin cell, bacteria, or other impurities on your face. The heat from the process also signals a healing response in your skin. That stimulates collagen and elastin production to make your skin look firmer.
What Does a Carbon Laser Peel Treat?
The carbon laser peel is effective for treating acne. The whole process works to eliminate oil, debris, and bacteria in the pores, which are often causes of acne. Doctors find that it can clear up existing acne and prevent new breakouts from occurring for weeks or months.
You may need multiple treatments to see the effects on acne. The treatment is non-irritating, so it doesn’t make inflamed skin feel worse during treatment. You can repeat carbon laser peels as necessary without negative side effects.
In addition to treating acne, carbon laser peels may also improve:
- Signs of premature aging
- Dull complexion, tone, and texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Oily skin
- Dark spots
- Mild acne scars
Preparation and Recovery
Carbon laser peels are entirely non-invasive and very mild. As a general rule, there’s no special preparation needed but consult your doctor to be sure. If you use prescription skin treatments, your doctor may suggest discontinuing them to avoid irritation.
The procedure itself is painless, though some people say they feel a mild stinging sensation during the treatment. Most people feel fine immediately afterward. The most common side effect is slight redness, which usually subsides within a day. There may be a recommendation to use gentle products and sun protection after the treatment.
You will probably notice some improvement after one treatment, which exfoliates the skin and unclogs pores so that it looks brighter and clearer right away. Your results may continue to improve over time as your skin produces more collagen and elastin.
