Sssshhh! The celebs don’t want you to know! For years they’ve kept it to themselves in the top London and New York salons. But now you can get the carbon laser facial here in Derby – and we’re sure you’ll LOVE the results.

Sometimes it’s called the carbon peel or the Hollywood peel, but banish all thoughts of harsh chemicals and acids ripping off the top layer of skin leaving your face red-raw.

This gentle, relaxing treatment brings a whole host of benefits. Clients report skin that’s wonderfully soft and hydrated, with an improved tone and a reduction in fine lines and open pores. It can also help to banish blackheads, whiteheads and acne.

What is a carbon peel facial?

A dark carbon paste is smoothed across your face, like a face mask, as you lie comfortably on a bed with your eyes protected by goggles. The paste penetrates into your pores before a special laser is swept across the skin. The pulses of light energy from the laser are attracted to the carbon particles and vaporise them along with dead skins cells and the oil and dirt that the carbon has absorbed from your skin.

Your skin is deeply exfoliated, leaving it smoother. Many clients report that skin tone looks more even, any pigmentation patches are lightened and open pores are reduced. The laser stimulates the production of collagen to firm up the skin and target fine lines and wrinkles. It’s ideal for people with sensitive skin or anyone who is battling acne or problem skin.

How long does the carbon peel facial take and what are the after-effects?

The carbon peel only takes about 30 minutes. You can just drift off while our expert technician works on your face. It’s painless and there are no reports of complications or painful side-effects. You MAY experience a very slight redness or tingling that soon disappears. You can go out and party the same evening if you want.

We do recommend you use SPF 50 sunscreen for a month after the treatment, because exposure to the sun on top of the laser treatment can cause hyper-pigmentation.

Hollywood A-listers such as Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie and Kim Kardashian are said to have had the carbon peel facial. Why not join them and look forward to people asking you why you look so relaxed and have such a wonderful glow!
