Carbon Peeling Laser Machines

Carbon peel laser treatments are a trendy but very effective addition to your practice. It’s done by putting a brown/grey mask on your client’s face and shining a laser on the mask.

You can do the treatment on people with darker skin, but it works best on lighter skin. Here is what you, as a professional, need to know about the treatment.

Peeling Laser Alternatives
Carbon Peel Laser Vs Fractional CO2
Both services use lasers in order to get a deeper penetration in the skin. CO2 treatments use shorter pulses and works for skin problems such as birth marks, scars and wrinkles. Carbon Peel laser treatments work for those but also acne and other problems listed above and provides a deeper penetration of the skin. Fractional CO2 treatments work best for: • fine lines • wrinkles • skin tone • texture • pigmentation However, Carbon peels provide these benefits: • Uneven skin tone • Dull skin • Sun damage • Moderate to severe blotchy skin • Moderate to severe scarring • Age spots • Deep wrinkles • Fine lines
Carbon Peel Laser Vs Hydrodermabrasion
Hydrodermabrasions tend to target the following problems: • Fine lines and wrinkles • Dark spots • Hyperpigmentation • Clogged pores • Enlarged pores • Mild acne • Oily skin Carbon peels provide these: • Uneven skin tone • Dull skin • Sun damage • Moderate to severe blotchy skin • Moderate to severe scarring • Age spots • Deep wrinkles • Fine lines Hydrafacials are done using water instead of lasers. It’s similar to a microdermabrasion, but a bit easier on the skin. They push water out on the face then suck it back up similar to the suction device on a microderm. Both are easier on the skin than their counterparts. They are both safe, so it’s more a preference. Some people suggest that carbon peels are better for people with lighter skin while hydroderms can mess up a lighter complexion and may be better for darker skin. They both are in the same price range, so cost wouldn’t have too much of an effect.
Carbon Peel Laser Vs Microdermabrasion
Microdermabrasion is a more irritative than carbon peels. It’s using either a sandy material or an abrasive wand in order to get a deeper exfoliation. Microderms are good for these particular services: • Enlarged pores • Age spots • Black heads • Dark patches • Stretch marks • Fine lines • Wrinkles • Mild acne scarring The treatments that carbon peels provide are: • Uneven skin tone • Dull skin • Sun damage • Moderate to severe blotchy skin • Moderate to severe scarring • Age spots • Deep wrinkles • Fine lines They offer similar solutions but microderm shouldn’t be done on extremely sensitive skin and you should patch test before you do a full facial with the microderm to make sure it can be tolerated. If your client has rosacea, the microderm shouldn’t be offered. Rosacea skin is too sensitive, but it could potentially be done with a laser.
Carbon Peel Laser Vs LED
Both of these treatments use light therapy on your client’s skin. LED treatments are best for: • Acne • Pigmentation • Redness • Rosacea • skin aging LED light therapy can be done at home over the counter or in an office. It’s gentle and works over all the skin and not treating certain areas like you can do with a carbon laser peel.
Carbon Peel Laser Vs Chemical Peel
Chemical peels are as harsh on the skin as microderm. With a laser peel vs a chemical peel, sensitive skin will always do better with a laser. Lasers can also get more precise location on the skin while a chemical peel is either put on certain areas or are manually applied. Both types of peels will have similar effects: • Fighting acne breakouts and inflammation • Controlling oily skin • Minimizing pore size and unclogging pores • Lightening pigmentation and acne scars • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles • Exfoliating deeper than a scrub • Improving skin texture and tone
Carbon Peel Laser Vs Micro needling
Using the carbon peel works better than Micro needling when you’re doing bigger areas of skin. When you’re working on certain areas and smaller areas, micro needling may be better. Micro needling is using small, sterilized needles to cause the body to create more collagen. It helps: • Hyperpigmentation • Large pores • Reduced skin elasticity • Scars • Stretch marks • Sun damage • Fine lines and wrinkles Microneedling is also better for A. smaller budgets and B. darker skin. Microneedling costs less than laser treatments and doesn’t potentially lighten darker skin the same way a laser treatment can. (but doesn’t always).
