Living with acne and acne scarring can make it hard to feel good about your skin. Fortunately, there are treatments available at SKIN that can create marked improvements in the appearance and texture of your skin — even for men and women who suffer from acne.

Carbon Laser Facials are a revolutionary, non-invasive, painless with a virtually no-downtime procedure that helps rejuvenate the appearance of aging and damaged skin. It gently removes the top layer of skin, leaving an amazing glow with a vibrant, youthful complexion.

Also known as a China Doll Laser Facial, Hollywood Peel, Black Doll Laser Facial, or Charcoal Black Doll Facial, this gentle procedure is safe on all skin types. It is a great way to get a quick skin refresher without the longer downtime associated with other laser procedures. It evens skin tone, reducing the appearance of pigment, fine lines, and acne scars.

    Acne Q & A

    How it works.

    We’ll apply a layer of liquid carbon to your face (or body), allowing it to penetrate deeply into your pores and let it dry. The carbon bonds with any debris that might be present, like dead skin cells, contaminants, and oil.

    We’ll then pass a laser across the surface of your skin. Because the laser light is super attracted to carbon particles, its energy and heat are absorbed by the carbon paste destroying the particles in your pores.

    Light from the laser is attracted to the carbon. The carbon absorbs the light energy. The reaction causes a mini-explosion. The explosion pushes the energy, in the form of heat, deep into the layers of the skin where elastin and collagen are activated and cells begin producing anew. Meanwhile, on the surface of the skin, as the explosion occurs the carbon is vaporized along with any dirt, oil, or dead skin cells. Sounds kind of scary, with all the explosions and vaporizing, but don’t worry. There’s very little discomfort or pain. The sensation has been described as a mild tingling or very slight pinch.

    Who can benefit from this treatment?

    For those who want to combat the signs of aging, Carbon Laser Facials can rejuvenate your skin by:

    • Reducing the signs of premature aging
    • Improving skin integrity and radiance
    • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles
    • Increasing skin tone and texture
    • Stimulating collagen growth for firmer, plumper skin
    • Reducing oily skin or exfoliating dry skin
    • Erasing or fading yellow/brown pigmentation
    • Shrinking scars (must be young scars of small diameter).


    Carbon Laser Facials are safe and effective for all types of acne and can:

    • Gently clear your pores to help reduce blackheads and whiteheads
    • Eliminates the need to extract comedones
    • Simultaneously targets acne bacteria and shrinks your sebaceous glands for reduced oil production, congestion, and outbreaks
    • Decreases cyst size, papules, and nodules


    What can I expect?

    Your skin will feel immediately smoother and look instantly refreshed. Better still, there’s zero downtime! You can return to your daily activities immediately following your treatment – your skin may appear slightly red but this should disappear within a few hours. We recommend you use SPF 30+ and avoid abrasive exfoliates or other invasive skin treatments for a few days.


    How long do results last?

    It will depend on the condition of your skin, your skin type, and your lifestyle.

    You’ll probably notice results after a single treatment. However, for long-term results, we recommend regular treatments – 4-6 treatments are optimal, spaced 2-4 weeks apart.


    Will it hurt?

    No! The treatment is gentle, non-invasive, and painless. You’ll probably hear a small pulse as we target the carbon particles in your pores with the laser. Our clients describe the feeling as warm or prickly but not painful.


    What causes acne?

    Acne is your body’s response to clogged hair follicles. Your hair follicles are also connected to your skin’s oil glands and allow oil, dead skin cells, bacteria, and other microscopic particles to exit your skin.

    When those follicles become clogged, nothing can exit. Your body responds with inflammation, which causes the red spots associated with acne.

    Several factors can aggravate or trigger an acne outbreak, including:

    • Hormonal fluctuations
    • Excessive stress
    • Dietary choices
    • Certain medications

    There are many myths surrounding acne, including the idea that wearing cosmetics and eating greasy foods will lead to breakouts. Research has largely debunked these myths.



    Laser Procedure Post Care


    The best way to minimize the risks of any procedure is to follow your post-treatment care. Please be sure to consult with your technician if you have any questions on any item listed or any other concerns you may have.

    Apply SPF broad-spectrum UVA/UVB 30 or higher,15 minutes before going outside.

    A histamine blocker (such as Benadryl) may be taken the night of the procedure to help with swelling (if associated with itching.)

    Avoid heat which includes exercise, jacuzzi, or any other activities that would heat up the skin for 24 hours.

    Avoid any direct sunlight or tanning beds for 7-10 days.

    Avoid Retin-A for 72 hours.

    Avoid any other laser treatments or chemical procedures on the treated area for 2 weeks post-treatment.

    Cleanse using a gentle facial cleanser.  Do not scrub, use hot water or a washcloth.

    Do not wax for 2 weeks after treatment.

    Keep skin hydrated.

    No scrubs, facial brushes, retinol, or any exfoliating agents for 7 days after treatment.

    It is normal for the treated area to feel like sunburn during this time.

    You may experience slight redness that will lighten within 24 to 48 hours.

    Tylenol is recommended for post-treatment discomfort.

    If you experience any side effects such as hypo or hyperpigmentation, prolonged redness or swelling, histamine reaction, or blistering call or come in for instruction or treatment.
