Carbon laser treatment utilizes Pico laser which is latest form of the conventional Q switched laser. The Pico means the duration between individual laser pulses is in picoseconds (one-trillionth of a second).

The wavelength used depends on the crystal present in the machine as the Neodymium-doped Yttrium Aluminum garnet (Nd-YAG) crystal emits in 1064nm or the Alexandrite crystal which emits in 755nm.

  • The liquid carbon applied on your face has activated charcoal within it.
  • The activated charcoal has absorbent property due to the microscopic pores present in it.
  • After the mask has dried up the laser light is used at low energy setting.
  • The light from the laser has heat energy which after absorption by the charcoal particles binds to your skin.
  • After bonding the activated charcoal absorbs the dirt, debris and excess oil from the surface and within your skin thus also removing dead skin cells and clearing blocked pores
  • The heat energy also stimulates synthesis of collagen deep in your skin by doing selective thermal damage without damaging the other layers.
  • Now as the energy setting of laser is kept at high
  • As the higher energy laser light strikes the charcoal particles the particles start to break away and can be easily removed along with the impurities.

The charcoal laser treatment is a many step approximately 30 minutes to complete. Following are the steps of the procedure.

  • After admission into the center, you are made to lie on the bed comfortably.
  • Your cosmetic dermatologist will apply a mask of liquid carbon onto your face. A protective eyewear is given to shield your eyes from the laser.
  • Approximately a waiting time of 10 minutes is given so that the mask dries up
  • The mask is gently peeled away with help of laser.
  • A skin friendly ointment or gel is applied to further nourish your skin.
