What is Carbon Peeling Treatment
A carbon facial is a facial treatment where the main ingredient used in carbon. Its aim is to leave your skin smoother, firmer and much softer.

How is a Carbon Facial Done?
- The entire carbon facial process starts with liquid carbon paste being applied to your face. The liquid is easily absorbed by the upper layers of your skin but does not seep down too easily in the deeper layers. The paste is left to dry.
- A carbon laser is used next on the carbon paste. The carbon in the paste started reacting with the open and enlarged pores on your face and it also starts breaking down the blackhead and whiteheads on your face.
- This facial has the effect of a carbon peeling. A little bit of heat is generated during the process, which in turns helps in the collagen generation, and helps improve elasticity in your skin. When carbon facials are done multiple times, your skin will be visibly improved.
- The laser reaches the deeper layers of the skin. It causes microabrasions to the collagen and elastin fibers. Doing so agitates them and prompts them to start repairing and thereby improve the texture of your skin.
- The entire process is ended with a cleansing, toning and moisturizing of your skin, which leaves you feeling luxurious and glowing skin.
