Embraced by Hollywood A-listers like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, this article provides a comprehensive guide to carbon laser peels in Singapore.

How a Carbon Laser Peel Works

Let’s walk through what happens during your treatment. First up, we’ll give your skin a good cleanse, and then a thin layer of carbon paste will be applied to your face. This paste is like a superhero, diving into your pores to absorb any unwanted stuff while giving your skin a gentle exfoliation. Plus, it’s got your back in reducing inflammation from any blemishes.

Now, picture this: our esthetician hovers a laser over your skin, creating a warm, soothing sensation. This laser magic breaks down the carbon particles, bringing impurities to the surface. After a few passes, our esthetician skillfully removes the carbon mask using a short pulse Q-Switched laser.

Sounds like a detailed process, right? But here’s the best part – you just have to kick back and relax. No effort needed on your part, except for staying in the zone of absolute relaxation. Once the treatment wraps up, say hello to plumper, firmer, and softer skin. Noticeably even skin tone and fewer lines and wrinkles are the bonus perks!

In the following section, we’ll walk you through some benefits associated with the carbon laser peel.

Benefits of Getting a Carbon Laser Peel

Here’s a question you may be thinking: well, I know how the process works now. But how exactly will a carbon laser peel benefit me? We’re glad you asked. These 5 benefits may compel you to take action and book an appointment with DrHaach today.

1. Stimulates Collagen Production for a Youthful Glow

The benefits of a carbon laser peel treatment extend beyond addressing skin discoloration and fine lines. This treatment stimulates collagen production, contributing to an overall enhancement of your skin tone and texture. By effectively eliminating superficial impurities, the carbon laser peel promotes softer, smoother, and a more youthful appearance to your skin.

2. Shrinks Your Pores & Reduces Oiliness

Enlarged pores may be difficult to control and can give your skin an uneven texture. A carbon laser peel could give you a more even complexion by shrinking the appearance of your pores. A carbon laser peel can help unclog congested pores and reduce the amount of oil your skin produces.

3. Quick, Easy, Convenient

Unlike other procedures like CO2 laser, there’s no downtime associated with carbon peel treatment in Singapore. Our clinics are located centrally at Tiong Bahru Central Plaza, Raffles City and Orchard Central. This means you can drop by during lunchtime for a quick pick-me-up, and resume work immediately afterwards.

4. Eradicates Pesky Blackheads and Whiteheads

Blackheads and whiteheads are caused by the accumulation of oil and dirt in pores. A carbon laser peel can help remove blocked or congested pores.

5. Prevents Acne Breakouts

Dead skin cells and excess oil can clog pores and lead to breakouts. Not only can a carbon laser peel remove these, it can also stimulate the production of collagen.

Disadvantages Associated with the Carbon Laser Peel

1. May be Unable to Remove Deep Wrinkles:

If you’re dealing with deeper wrinkles, it’s important to know that a carbon laser peel might not be the best fix. While it does well with fine lines, it mainly focuses on the skin’s surface and may not do enough for those more noticeable creases.

2. Can’t Heal Severe Sun Damage:

For serious sun damage, like deep pigmentation and advanced ageing from too much sun, the carbon laser treatment might not do the whole job. It can freshen up your skin and make it better, but it might not completely undo the effects of lots of sun exposure.

3. Not Suitable for All Skin Types:

Just so you know, the carbon laser peel might not suit everyone. If you have certain skin issues or a history of keloid scarring, you might want to check out other options. Also, if your skin is on the darker side, there’s a chance this procedure could affect your skin colour. Always good to keep these things in mind!

Carbon Laser Peel Side Limitations & Risks

After a carbon laser peel, you’ll likely experience minimal side effects. Your face might show a bit of redness, but don’t worry – it typically fades on its own within a day.

While the chances are slim, there’s a small risk of infection and scarring associated with carbon laser peels. Just stick to your skincare professional’s guidance, and you’ll easily keep your skin looking radiant and free from blemishes.

How Effective is a Laser Carbon Peel?

A laser carbon peel has demonstrated remarkable effectiveness, particularly in addressing severe acne concerns.

In simple terms, a laser carbon peel isn’t just good for acne – it’s a handy solution that can make your skin better overall, addressing various concerns effectively.

2. How Long Does Carbon Laser Take?

At DrHaach, a carbon laser session takes 30 minutes, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules. The duration may vary depending on the specific areas being treated and the individual’s skin condition. It’s a quick and efficient procedure, and you can often resume your regular activities immediately after the session.

3. How Should I Prepare for Carbon Laser Treatment?

Prepare for your carbon laser treatment by embracing a thorough suite of services starting with a detailed skin assessment, diagnosis, and followed by comprehensive treatment. After the procedure, expect diligent post-treatment management and a thorough review. As part of your preparation, we advise discontinuing the use of retinoids approximately one week prior to the laser carbon peel. Additionally, for optimal care and protection, it is especially crucial to incorporate sunscreen into your daily skin care routine during this period.

4. How Long do Carbon Peel Results Last?

You may be able to see results after just one session of carbon laser peel. For optimal results, however, we recommend going for 10-20 treatments spaced 2-4 weeks apart.

5. How Many Sessions of Carbon Laser Peel are Needed?

4-6 sessions of carbon laser peel may be required in order to see significant improvements on your skin conditions. It’s important to consult your doctor if you have any questions or doubts.

6. What Are the Dos and Don’ts After Carbon Laser Peel Treatment? (Aftercare Tips)

After your carbon laser treatment, here’s what to keep in mind:

1. Skip Abrasive Treatments: Avoid any abrasive or invasive skin treatments for at least a week. Steer clear of exfoliation during this period.

2. Hydrate Your Skin: Nurture your skin with hydration. Consider using moisturisers like DrHaach’s Micro Treatment Lotion.

3. Sunscreen is a Must: Whether indoors or outdoors, apply sunscreen with at least SPF30 to protect your skin.

4. Tailored Skincare for Oily Skin: If you have oily skin, opt for skincare products specifically designed to combat acne to maintain a balanced complexion. While carbon laser peels are effective for oily skin, it’s equally important to choose and use products suitable for your skin in between treatments.

5. Watch out for Certain Ingredients: Refrain from using products containing retinol, alpha hydroxy acids, and glycolic acid for at least 2 weeks to prevent skin irritation.

6. Collagen Boost: For photoaged skin or fine lines, boost collagen through a collagen-rich diet, collagen-containing products, or collagen supplements.

7. How Long Does it Take to Recover from Carbon Laser Treatment?

None – no downtime is associated with carbon laser treatment!

8. Is Carbon Laser Peel Better Than Chemical Peel?

Carbon laser peels and chemical peels serve distinct purposes with different mechanisms. The effectiveness of a carbon laser peel versus a chemical peel depends on your skincare goals. A carbon laser peel employs a carbon mask to extract impurities, offering skin rejuvenation. On the other hand, a chemical peel utilises chemical formulations to exfoliate the outer layers of your skin. The choice between the two depends on your specific needs and preferences. If you’re confused, a skincare professional can guide you towards the most suitable option for your desired outcome.

9. Are Carbon Laser Peels Painful?

A carbon laser peel is generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort. Most individuals report a mild tingling or warmth during the procedure, but pain is typically minimal. The laser settings can be adjusted to ensure a comfortable experience for each person. We recommend communicating any discomfort to the skincare professional performing the treatment, as they can make adjustments to enhance your comfort.

10. Is the Carbon Laser Peel Worth it?

Absolutely! If you’re dealing with uneven skin tone, acne, oily skin, or enlarged pores, a carbon laser peel is totally worth it. It can give your skin the boost it needs, enhancing your confidence and ensuring you shine in any social setting.

11. Which Other Treatments Does the Carbon Laser Peel Pair Well With?

The carbon laser peel may complement treatments such as chemical peels, IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) therapy and topical skin care products. Consult a qualified skincare professional to determine the best combination of treatments for your specific needs.

Collagen Hyser, is a lunchtime laser treatment which targets collagen stimulation and promotes anti-ageing benefits.

Ageing causes the skin to become less elastic and more fragile. Fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin are all caused by the lack of collagen. Collagen Hyser uses non-ablative Nd:YAG laser technology to create a high intensity beam of energy that concentrates into powerful pulses to the skin. When applied to skin at a specific wavelength, it can deeply stimulate collagen and elastin fibres to rebuild the superficial layers of the skin. The skin remodelling effect results in a smoother and more youthful appearance.

This is a versatile laser treatment which gently addresses a multitude of skin concerns with minimal to no downtime.
