What Is A Hollywood Carbon Peel?
A Hollywood Peel is a specialized carbon laser treatment that can be used for a number of different skin irregularities. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines and scars, even out skin tone, improve skin tone, help repair sun damage, and help treat enlarged pores and acne. This treatment is gentle and gives an improved skin tone which feels and looks smoother and younger.
How Does A Hollywood Carbon Peel Work?
The Hollywood Peel works by using laser energy and a special Spectra lotion to heat the dermis and remove the top layer of dead skin. There are three basic parts to this treatment:
- A back carbon solution is applied to the skin.
- Laser energy heats the carbon to help it penetrate the skin.
- Another laser energy setting is applied which explodes the carbon particles which in turn exfoliates the skin.
The specialized laser energy targets the melanin in skin cells and breaks it up. Once the melanin is broken up the body naturally removes it, leaving you with brighter looking skin. Additionally, as the laser energy heats the dermis, the skin contracts and stimulates collagen production, improving skin tone and reducing lines and wrinkles.
Am I A Good Candidate For A Hollywood Peel?
Hollywood Carbon Peels are gentle, quick, and safe for most people. If you are wanting to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the face, improve the look of pores, treat acne, scarring, or hyperpigmentation, then you are a good candidate for this treatment. A complimentary consultation with our medical professionals will determine if a Hollywood Carbon Peel is right for you.
How Long Does A Typical Treatment Take?
During the treatment session, a light layer of Spectra lotion will be applied to the treatment area. Next, the laser energy will be applied to the skin. During this time patients report hearing snapping sounds as the laser is fired and may also feel a warm tingling sensation. The treatment can take up to one hour to complete after which all normal activities can be resumed immediately.
What Results Will I See?
After a Hollywood Carbo Peel, patients can expect to see glowing, younger looking skin, improved skin tone, a reduction in the appearance of lines and scars, reduction in the size of pores, and a lightened, more even look to dark patches. While some results are noticeable immediately following the treatment, more significant results will be visible within a week to one month after treatment. Some patients will opt to have multiple treatments to increase results further.
Is There Any Downtime?
Because the Hollywood Carbon Peel is so gentle and there are minimal side effects, there is absolutely no downtime and regular activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment.
