What is a Carbon Peel Laser Facial?
A Carbon Peel Laser Facial is an effective solution that helps treat a number of skin concerns, including skin texture and tone, wrinkles, acne, collagen production and some forms of pigmentation.
Using laser energy with long wavelengths that penetrate deeply without injuring the top layer of skin, the deep dermis is stimulated to produce natural collagen and other vital proteins. This results in the resurfacing of your skin, giving it a healthy and youthful appearance.
Iris Carbon Peel Treatment Technology
We use only the most advanced, non-invasive and up-to-date medical-grade technology in our laser face resurfacing treatments.
The Iris laser is an adaptable premium-engineered aesthetic machine designed for treatment of a wide variety of skin conditions and concerns.
It is easy to use and can target a wide variety of skin imperfections, including tattoo inks, due in part to its longer wavelength (1064nm) which penetrates into the skin to actively target specific areas. This allows it to address deeper problems such as deep pigmentation removal.
This makes Iris one of the most effective and efficient machines in the cosmetic industry for facial resurfacing and other laser facial treatments.
Iris is known for their photo-mechanical effects, featuring a combination of high power and short pulse widths (less than 20 nanoseconds – one nanosecond is equivalent to one billionth of a second) that deliver energy throughout the layers of the epidermis, faster than the normal relaxation time of the tissue. This process safely breaks down and shatters small particles comprising the discolouration or skin lesion, which are then later removed by the body’s immune system.
Your medically trained and certified expert clinician at our clinic will determine and recommend the frequency of Carbon Peel treatments you need for your face based on your individual skin type and skin concerns. The treatment is non-invasive, almost painless and can be completed in less than twenty minutes, making them a superior solution to invasive surgical procedures for wrinkles and scarring.
