Carbon Peel treatment is majorly used to treat acne and improve oily skin.  It works to restore the natural glow and freshness of the skin. It is also known as “China doll Peel” because it gives the skin a doll like finish. It is resurfacing facial treatment to treat the dead or infected skin with the help of laser beam light. It regenerates skin, improves the appearance of skin, reduces scars, acne marks, or spots, etc.

Carbon Peel Treatment is beneficial in treating congested skin, uneven skin toned, or pigmentation caused by hormonal changes, sunburn, acne, reactions, or allergies. It is one of the latest innovations to deliver effective and long-lasting results.

How Does It Work?

Under the process of Carbon Peel, a layer of carbon liquid is applied to the skin, and it is left there to be absorbed in the skin properly in the various skin layers. When it is finally absorbed, a layer is focused onto the carbon particles, which ends up destroying any debris blocking of the pores, leaving the skin smooth, healthy, and unaffected by the laser.

What Does the Carbon Peel Treat?

Results are immediate after the Carbon Peel. These are a few changes that can be noticed:

  1. Reduced Acne

  2. Radiant Skin

  3. Reduced Pore Size

  4. Increased Skin Renewal

  5. Even Skin Tone and Texture

Patients rarely experience redness on their skin, which is settled in a couple of hours. This treatment does not have any kind of side effects.

There are a few more benefits of this treatment:

  1. Reduced Blackheads

  2. Reduced Excessive Pigmentation

  3. Reduced Dullness

  4. Removed Fine Lines

Does It Hurt?

There is little to no pain experienced during the Carbon Peel Treatment. Patients may experience a slight warmth due to the laser and tingling on their skin, which is totally normal during this procedure.

Benefits of Carbon Peel Treatment

There are several benefits of Carbon Peel Treatment. Some of them are:

  1. Cleansing: Carbon absorbs oil from the deep pores of the skin. The laser beam targets the affected area to destroy the carbon particles. This helps to take off the absorbed material with it.

  2. Rejuvenating: Carbon Peel also helps to stimulate collagen production under a deep layer of the skin, which produces plumper skin, reduces wrinkles, and leaves it tighter and glowing.

  3. Exfoliating: Since the carbon is passed by a laser, it clears the dead skin cells, blackheads, and drastically exfoliates the skin. The results leave the skin softer, radiant with significantly reduced pore size.

  4. Oil Reduction and Acne: The heat released by laser has two additional benefits. It reduces the bacteria that are responsible for acne, helping to improve the skin condition by better management of pimples and outbreaks, it also shrinks the size of oil producing glands, which helps in controlling acne.


Carbon Peel Treatment is amazing for every skin type, but it does wonders for oily skin. Oily skin is significantly more prone to acne as it generates more sebum as compared to any other skin type. Carbon Peel Treatment and daily high-spectrum sunscreen improve skin conditions manifold. Although noticeable results can be seen after a single treatment, for maximum results, regular treatment is recommended.
