Reduce Sebum Production and Enlarged Pores with Carbon Laser Peel
Pores on some people’s faces may appear more noticeable than others because of the different skin types.
There are two types of pores in our skin. One releases sweat and the other releases the body’s natural oil, called sebum. When the sebaceous glands are overactive, the oil-producing glands may appear enlarged. While it may not be possible to totally eliminate large pores, there are some ways to reduce their appearance.
Other than maintaining a religious skin care routine to slough dead skin cells and debris, in-clinic treatments such as carbon laser peel are also particularly effective in minimizing enlarged pores and oily skin.
What is Spectra carbon laser peel?
Spectra carbon laser peel is a laser procedure which uses the synergy between specialized laser energy, and a thin layer of liquid carbon applied onto the skin, acting as a photo-enhancer.
How does Spectra carbon laser peel work?
The doctor starts the treatment by applying a thin layer of fine, medical-grade liquid carbon on the face. The liquid carbon penetrates deep into the pores. The laser is then applied to interact with the liquid carbon which instantly vaporises the carbon. At the same time, any toxins or bacteria that are lodged to the carbon will be removed.
Spectra carbon laser peel gives a holistic, gentle yet effective peeling treatment which is very different from traditional chemical peels.
What skin conditions can Spectra carbon laser peel treat?
This gentle, no-downtime quick skin-refresher is highly beneficial for people with acne, large pores, oily skin, dull skin tone, mild pigment and fine lines.
Is there any downtime?
Spectra carbon laser peel does not have any downtime. There is no pain with the procedure and it takes only about 15 minutes. You can resume your daily activities immediately after the treatment. Just like all other treatments, we recommend that you protect the treated area with sufficient sunscreen and stay out of the sun as much as possible.
Are there any side effects?
This treatment is almost painless. Some patients have described the treatment as feeling warm and slightly prickly. However, you can opt for numbing cream to be applied before the treatment to ensure comfort during the treatment. During the treatment, some ‘firecracker sound’ is heard as the carbon particles interact and absorb the light produced by the laser.
You may experience mild redness immediately after the treatment but it should subside in a few hours.
How many sessions are required to see results?
Your skin should appear clearer and less oily after the first session. However, you can achieve better and longer-lasting results if a programme of 5 sessions is repeated every 3 to 4 weeks.
