How does it work?
The heat produced by the Lucid Q carbon peels has 2 additional benefits. It reduces the .acnes bacteria responsible for causing acne, allowing for better management of pimples and outbreaks, and it also shrinks oil producing glands resulting in less oil production, hence reducing congestion building up in the pores.
A light carbon based solution is applied so that it penetrates deep into the pores followed by multiple passes of the gentle laser across the skin which is attracted to the carbon particles. AS the laser is passed across , it destroys the carbon and a layer of dead skin. You may experience a slight snapping or pricking on the skin which is easy to tolerate and does not require any local numbing cream. Typically there is a slight warm sensation accompanying the treatment. Once the treatment is completed, a chilled towel is applied to the skin, and you can immediately return to your daily activities.
This treatment can be performed on any area of your body especially on back, chest and bottoms.
Results are evident after a couple of days typically, though most experience some skin tightening too.
