More About:

Carbon Facial

Preparation: The treatment area will be cleansed and a thin layer of liquid medical-grade carbon paste will be applied to your skin.

Treatment: The technician will use the 3D-Nanosure laser to gently deliver pulses of light. The laser heat vaporizes the carbon paste, taking away dead skin cells, oil, and dirt trapped within its pores. Additionally, the laser energy stimulates collagen production for improved skin texture and elasticity.

Aftercare: Your skin may feel slightly flushed or warm after the treatment, but these effects usually subside quickly. We will provide specific aftercare instructions, such as avoiding sun exposure and harsh skincare products.

The Carbon Facial is a safe and well-tolerated treatment, but there are a few potential risks and complications, including:

  • Temporary redness, swelling, or mild discomfort
  • Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation (darkening or lightening of the skin) (rare)
  • Acne flare-up (rare)

How Does

Carbon Facial


The carbon paste absorbs dirt, oil, and dead skin cells from your pores. The laser energy then vaporizes the carbon paste, effectively removing these impurities from your skin. Additionally, the laser heat stimulates collagen production, leading to firmer, younger-looking skin.

This treatment helps resolve the following concerns


Acne is a common skin condition characterised by the formation of pimples, blackheads, whiteheads, and often, inflammation. It occurs when hair follicles are clogged with oil and dead skin cells, leading to the growth of bacteria. Acne can affect various areas of the body, with the face being a commonly affected area.

Acne Scarring

Acne scarring results from the healing process of severe acne lesions, leaving visible marks or depressions on the skin. It is quite difficult to treat and will require commitment to a new skin care regimen and full course of treatment.


Pores are small openings in the skin that release oils and sweat. Enlarged pores can be a cosmetic concern, affecting skin texture.

Skin rejuvenation involves a range of advanced treatments aimed at revitalising and enhancing the skin's texture, tone, and overall appearance.
