Treatment To Try: The Lucid-Q Carbon Laser Peel
A step-by-step guide for this celebrity-approved treatment
Do you want to achieve a natural radiance this festive season? The Lucid-Q Carbon Laser Peel, popularly known as the Hollywood Facial, is the easiest way to address your skin concerns and leave with glowing skin. The non-invasive facial uses liquid activated carbon which targets impurities like acne, blackheads, and dead skin. The carbon peel is blasted off your skin through a laser beam. Celebrities like Jennifer Anniston, Kim Kardashian, and Angelina Jolie are regular users of the carbon laser peel for its revolutionary acne-fighting and anti-ageing results.
What is the procedure like?
The Lucid-Q Carbon Laser Peel is a two-step process
- A layer of carbon-based solution is applied evenly on the skin. The carbon penetrates deep into the pores to ensure thorough cleansing and gently exfoliates the ski.n
- Multiple passes of laser are supplied to the skin, which blasts the carbon solution and dead skin cells along with it.
After the carbon solution has been destroyed, a chilled towel is applied to the skin and you can resume with your daily activities. The entire treatment takes 45 minutes. You may feel a heating and crackling sensation as the laser blasts the carbon solution. It is a painless procedure, but does require numbing cream.
How does it work?
The activated carbon in the peel penetrates deep into the pores and extracts impurities like blackheads, makeup residual, and debris. The carbon laser peel can be an effective remedy for skin damage caused by pollution. The heat of the laser helps control oil production and reduces acne bacteria which helps in the management of pimples. The heat is also effective in shrinking enlarged pores. The laser application causes controlled thermal damage which stimulates collagen production and increases the elasticity of the skin. This causes a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As the laser blasts the carbon solution, dead skin cells are also destroyed which results in fresh and rejuvenated skin.
What can I expect post-treatment?
The carbon laser peel has no downtime and you can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment. There may be some redness, which will go away in a couple of hours. Try to avoid oil-based makeup and direct sun exposure for at least a month after getting the peel.
You will notice a smooth texture immediately after getting the treatment. Acne and pores significantly reduce and the treatment can be an excellent option right before a ceremony or party. Within a few days, you will experience a better complexion—think even tone, reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and skin tightening. Your aesthetician will determine how many treatments you may need, depending on your particular skin concerns. The carbon laser peel works well as a standalone procedure but it can also be used in combination with Dermapen Mesotherapy and Ultherapy available at Biolite.
How many treatments do I need?
Before treatment, you will have a consultation with the aesthetician to determine what course of action would be best for you. Usually, clients take 2-6 treatments at 2-3 week intervals. The number of treatments you need depends on skin type, concern, and progress. A single carbon laser peel is effective in treating surface-level problems but additional treatments will ensure long-lasting results.
