What to expect

How do Carbon Facials work?

As Carbon Facials ‘peel’ off the outer layer of dead skin cells, your skin is instantly exfoliated and purified, providing a more radiant complexion after just one treatment. This is why Carbon Facials are a popular choice for celebrities, as they can achieve an instantly healthy and luminous glow, in a short space of time, and before events  where their skin has to look and feel its best. Carbon Facials utilise a medical grade carbon crème which is applied to the entire treatment area and absorbed by the skin’s pores. Following the carbon crème application, we harness laser technology to painlessly shatter the carbon on the skin which gently removes surface dead skin cells and pore blockages, and rejuvenates the epidermal layer of the skin.

What are the benefits of a Carbon Facial?

Carbon Facials have both an immediate treatment result and cumulative skin rejuvenation benefits which makes this treatment a leading choice before special events and as part of a skin health journey. Working to resurface and rejuvenate, Carbon Facials:

  • Deeply cleanse and purify pores
  • Decongest acne-prone skin
  • Reduce the appearance of acne scarring
  • Improve and even skin tone
  • Create smoother, brighter skin
  • Address the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Stimulate collagen and elastin production for long-term skin rejuvenation results

How many treatments do I need?

After a single Carbon Facial, your skin will appear smoother, brighter and clearer. Like any skin treatment, the more consistent you are, the better your long-term results will be. We recommend a series of 4-6 Carbon Facial treatments for optimal results. Treatments are spaced 4 weeks apart (i.e. once a month), in order to allow the skin regenerative process of the facial to take full effect.

I’m booked in for a treatment! Do I need to do anything beforehand?

Great! We look forward to welcoming you to The Skin Lab. There is no pre-treatment preparation required before a Carbon Facial treatment. Please note that some skin types may be advised to prep the skin with topical skincare prior to laser treatment.

What happens during my treatment?

All The Skin Lab skin treatments begin with a comprehensive consultation where you’ll share your medical history, background and treatment goals. Together, we’ll formulate a treatment plan to achieve your objectives, which may include other treatments and skincare.

Once your skin has been thoroughly cleansed, we apply a layer of medical grade carbon crème to your treatment area. Once your pores have sufficiently absorbed the Carbon Crème, we begin the laser treatment. You will hear a popping sound as the laser energy shatters the carbon, and feel a pleasant warm sensation on the skin. The treatment is completely painless, with the carbon removal process taking just a few short minutes.

Can I add other treatments onto my Carbon Facial?

Absolutely! Adding LED Light Therapy to your Carbon Facial treatment is a progressive approach to enhancing your results and supporting your skin rejuvenation goals.

What can I expect afterwards?

You may experience some facial redness for a short period following your treatment. Thanks to its immediate plumping and refining results, Carbon Facials are a must before special events.
