Carbon Laser Facial Treatment in NYC

A Carbon Laser Facial is a type of therapy for the face that leaves skin feeling softer, firmer and smoother. This facial is the skin rejuvenation you’ve been looking for.

It is a non-invasive procedure and is sometimes called the charcoal facial or charcoal peel.

Your premier Carbon Laser Facial treatment is offered by Trifecta Med Spa in New York with Lumenis PiQo4 Laser. PiQo4 Laser is super high energy (the most powerful picosecond laser on the market), which translates to faster results.

What is a Carbon Laser Facial?

It involves applying a layer of liquid carbon over the face, which penetrates deep into the pores.

Because carbon has conductive quality, it is perfectly paired with a laser for this treatment. A layer of carbon is applied to the face of the patient and left to set. As it sets it will come down to the body temperature of the patient and absorb dirt and contaminants from the skin cells. A special laser is then shined on the face and is attracted to the conduction of the carbon. The carbon begins to absorb the electricity of the light and creates a reaction that causes the carbon to vaporize and blast away.

Carbon may absorb contaminants within the skin, and when the laser destroys the carbon it also destroys out any contaminants that were absorbed, causing them to disappear into thin air.The laser is also said to remove dead skin cells, blackheads and oil to leave nothing but pure beauty.

The process of a Carbon Laser Facial is meant to exfoliate the skin, reduce pore size, and even out skin tone, as well as making the skin feel softer and appear more radiant.

The facial is said to be particularly beneficial for people with oily skin, as it reduces acne-causing bacteria and shrinks sebaceous, (otherwise known as oil) glands.

What to expect

This non-surgical treatment allows for minimal invasion while still providing full skin rejuvenation. In fact, the facial will take place on the surface of your skin, but the reaction taking place will work deeper into your cells.

This procedure can be done in under an hour and may be faster depending on the area of therapy. The laser procedure is virtually painless. Some have described the feeling of the laser blasting away impurities as tingling, or a slight pinch. At the end of the treatment the skin may feel slightly warm from the process. This is normal and your optimal facial temperature will return shortly. 

There is no downtime after your carbon laser facial. Possible side effects include itching, flaking or redness. It is advised to avoid swimming, hot tubbing or hot water in the day following your treatment, but makeup can be applied just a few hours later, making this a perfect skin refresher for an evening out.

The laser operates at a highly effective, but still professionally safe, energy to provide you optimal results. While safe for all ages and skin types, those with heavily damaged skin will want to discuss all options with a medical professional. As with all treatments, Trifecta Med Spa is happy to answer any questions or concerns you have with a free consultation.
