Carbon Peel – A Revolutionary Treatment To Reduce Dead Skin Cells


If you’re looking to get rid of acne scars, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, or just want glowing skin, then a carbon peel may be the best option for you. This procedure uses a laser to penetrate deep into your skin and remove dead skin cells. It also helps fight acne by unclogging pores.

What is a carbon peel?

Carbon peels are an at-home treatment that uses a mild acid to exfoliate, brighten and smooth the skin. It works by gently removing the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing brighter, smoother, and glowing skin underneath.

The procedure is performed on clean dry skin in an office setting. The aesthetician will apply the carbon peel solution to your face in a thin layer using a cotton swab or sponge pad (this can hurt so be prepared!). Then we use a fan brush to gently sweep away any remaining particles from your pores as you would with regular exfoliation products at home! Once this step is complete you’ll rinse off any residue with warm water and pat dry with a clean towel before applying moisturizer as needed.

Carbon Peel FAQs:

  • What is a carbon peel? A carbon peel uses an organic compound called amorphous solid carbon (ASC) or activated charcoal powder which has been micronized into tiny particles less than 100 nanometers wide. Historically used for medicinal purposes such as wound dressing due to its ability to absorb impurities while also having anti-inflammatory properties. Today ASC/charcoal remains one of the safest forms of chemical exfoliation in cosmetic treatments due to its ability to detoxify without irritation or inflammation making it the perfect tool for sensitive skin types looking to reduce wrinkles & fine lines while getting rid of pigmentation issues such as sun spots, freckles & age spots while improving overall complexion tone. What does taking off dead skin cells do? Removing old layers allows new ones to grow back smoother than ever before thanks to increased blood circulation; Helps prevent clogged pores from forming due to reduced build-up over time;

How does it work?

A carbon peel is a laser treatment that removes the top layer of skin. It is done in a doctor’s office and takes about 15 minutes. Carbon peels can be used to treat sun damage, acne, scarring, and fine lines on the face, hands, chest, neck, and arms.

This procedure uses either a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser or an Erbium laser to remove the top layer of skin by heating it up so that it causes inflammation in the cells underneath. This means that you will experience redness where you had your peel done for several days after your appointment at our office in Northern California. You may also feel the heat for hours after your treatment as well as mild itching or tingling sensations around your face or body area where we performed this procedure on you during our visit here at Luminex Med Spa today!

What are the pre-procedure instructions?

  • Avoid sun exposure the week prior to your treatment. You may want to even avoid tanning beds, as they can make your skin extra sensitive and cause you more discomfort during the procedure.
  • Make sure that you’re not waxing or shaving for at least 3 weeks before your peel, especially around the areas where the peel will be applied. This can irritate the skin and increase inflammation.
  • Stop using any retinol or glycolic acid products a few days before your peel—these ingredients are photosensitizing and can make your face more susceptible to burning during treatment.

How long does the procedure take?

Your carbon peel will take 1-2 hours. The size of the area being treated will determine how long it takes, but in general, you’ll be in and out in less than two hours. This is because your aesthetician does the carbon peel in stages, which means that you won’t have to wait too long before your next session.

What should I expect after the treatment?

The treatment is not very painful, but the skin will be red and flaky after the peel. You’ll be able to wash it off gently in a few days, but this process may take longer if you have sensitive skin or if you have dark spots on your face. The new skin underneath will feel tight and dry, similar to how it feels when you’ve gone swimming for too long in chlorinated water. This can last for up to three weeks depending on how much sun exposure you get during that time period.

Be careful when washing your face after an at-home chemical peel because it may burn slightly from being exposed to irritants like soap bars or shampoos (especially those containing parabens).

How many sessions do I need to see results?

The number of treatments you will need depends on the condition of your skin. During your consultation, we’ll discuss the results you want to achieve and work together to determine how many sessions are appropriate for your treatment plan.

For some people, a single treatment is enough to bring their skin back into balance. Others may need more than one session before seeing noticeable results on their skin’s texture and tone. Even if you don’t see visible improvements after one or two sessions, there’s no reason to give up! We encourage our patients to stick with it because continued treatments can lead them closer to their desired outcome. However, keep in mind that this type of procedure isn’t permanent—so if you’re hoping for long-lasting effects (like smoother skin), repeat sessions will be necessary every so often (though not too often).

Is it painful?

It depends on your pain threshold. Some people experience mild discomfort, while others have no problem at all. If you do experience pain, it is usually mild and short-lived. If you’re worried about the treatment being painful, ask your aesthetician if they offer any numbing creams that can help minimize any discomfort during your peel. The level of pain you experience will also depend on how intense your peel is—the deeper the peel is applied to the skin, the more painful it may be during and after the application.

There are many reasons why someone would consider having a carbon peel done on their face. Carbon peels are used to treat acne scars and wrinkles, as well as hyperpigmentation (dark spots). In addition to these benefits, they also improve your overall complexion by stimulating collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin. This means that over time you will notice fewer fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes or mouth area while at the same time having more even-toned looking pigmented areas such as freckles or sun damage spots on your face!

A carbon peel can also be used to address scars left behind by previous breakouts if they’re severe enough – this is because it’s able to get deep into those damaged areas where other treatments won’t reach so it may be worth considering if you’re unsure about what sort of solution might work best for dealing with your specific case situation (which could include things like age spots).


In conclusion, a carbon peel treatment is an excellent way to rejuvenate your skin. It can help you fight acne and get rid of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. The procedure is quick and easy, with minimal downtime afterward. Plus, it’s safe for all skin types!
