How is carbon laser facial done?

It involves applying a layer of liquid carbon over the face, which penetrates deep into the pores. It’s allowed to dry over a period of 15 minutes. Light from a Q-switched laser is directed on the treatment area. Laser light is highly attracted to carbon particles and peels away the impurities and the contaminants that the carbon attracts. It can also remove dead skin cells, blackheads and oil and leaves the skin glowing and more radiant. As the laser penetrates the deep layers of the skin, it is meant to stimulate collagen production, giving you, firmer, more youthful looking skin. The facial is said to be particularly beneficial for people with oily skin, as it reduces acne-causing bacteria and shrinks sebaceous, or oil, glands.
