The Carbon Peel A Laser Treatment with No Downtime
The Carbon Peel or YAG laser has become a popular treatment here at MetroMD. This is a new non-invasive and pain-free laser treatment for treating minor skin imperfections and helping reduce breakouts associated with acne. The carbon powder penetrates to the dermis, stimulating skin cells, repairing, and promoting the growth of collagen and elastic fibers.
This laser treatment is virtually painless and can be done is as quick has half an hour. While it is true that certain lasers pose a higher risk for cell damage or discoloration in darker skin, there are safe and effective resurfacing options such as the Carbon Peel for those who have a darker skin tone.
The heat produced by carbon peels has 2 additional benefits. It reduces the P.Acnes bacteria responsible for acne, allowing for better management of pimples and outbreaks, and it also shrinks sebaceous glands (oil-producing glands), resulting in less oil production, and therefore reducing congestion building up in the pores. Treatments can be performed on any part of the body, including the back and chest.
