Essence of the Procedure:
Before the procedure, a special carbon-based gel is applied to the skin. It has a characteristic grey-black color. After the gel dries a little on the surface of the skin, the neodymium laser comes into action. This is a laser with a wavelength of up to 1064 nm.
Under the action of laser radiation, carbon particles are destroyed into smaller particles. This effect leads to the fact that dead cells of the epidermis are exfoliated, the pores are cleansed, and the natural processes of cellular regeneration are stimulated due to thermal exposure.
Before we talk about the expected effect of the procedure, we note that the result of peeling is an individual matter. It all depends on the characteristics of the skin, genetics, and the number of sessions performed. To achieve the desired effect, cosmetologists often prescribe a course of carbon peels.

A visual examination of the patient’s skin condition and a cosmetologist’s recommendation for further actions is essential. In some cases, if the client has no cosmetic contraindications and health problems, peeling is performed immediately after the consultation.
For example, in other cases, if the patient has acne in the acute stage, the doctor recommends waiting and coming for peeling in a couple of days.
Also, during the consultation, the beautician draws up a treatment plan. It may include one or more sessions of carbon peels and other care and cosmetic techniques that will be used in combination with peeling. It all depends on individual indicators.
Before carbon peeling, do not do facial cleansing or home peels, which can damage the skin.

- Treatment of the skin with an antiseptic solution or tonic. This is a significant point for the prevention of skin infection.
- Putting on goggles. This is especially important when it comes to face spectra carbon peel. Glasses allow you to protect the client’s eyes from the glow of the laser beam.
