Black Carbon Doll Charcoal Laser Facial
Black Carbon Doll Charcoal Laser Facial is known as 黑脸娃娃 or 黑面娃娃. It is done using a Q Switch laser (aka Q-Switched Nd-Yag Laser) Laser. The laser is a beam of energy at a specific wavelength (1064nm) which is applied to the skin and is absorbed by coloured pigments such as freckles, sun spots, age spots, etc. in the skin.
The power settings of the laser can be set at different levels and frequencies to accommodate your specific condition and expectations.
The treatment is very safe and painless. The laser energy feels like many tiny hot dots on your skin. Q-Switched Laser Treatment is a gentle alternative, and requires less sessions than skin resurfacing procedures to achieve similar results. Thus, reducing the chances of side effects greatly. It does not cause the skin to become thinner.
This treatment is very popular all over the world for:
- Acne marks
- Fairer skin
- Skin rejuvenation
- Pimples and acne
That’s me personally performing the treatment to my clients. 🙂
First, double cleansing the face and facial massage to open the lymphatic drainage and detox.
Then a layer of clay type mask is applied to the treatment area on the face and allow to dry for 5 minutes. The laser will make the black carbon disappear during the treatment while tightening your pores. The laser energy feels like many tiny hot dots on your skin. Generally pretty painless and fast treatment process. It’s quite amazing. 🙂
Pigmentation – the laser energy is absorbed by the pigments (usually brown, or grey in colour). These pigmentation break off into smaller fragments and are naturally cleared away by the body and skin.
Acne marks – acne marks are caused by inflammation (the redness and pain) from pimples. The inflammation causes the skin to produce pigments. These pigments are cause of acne marks, which can be effectively removed with the laser.
Fairer skin – the colour of our skin is also determined by the amount of skin pigments. Darker skin people or people who go sun tanning often have more skin pigments. The laser, at the correct setting, helps lighten the skin tone and makes it fairer and brighter.
Skin rejuvenation – the laser uses its energy to remove dirt, dead skin cells, oil and superficial facial hair. Take this as a quick, effective and multi-purposed medical facial!
Pimples and acne – the laser energy can also kill P-acne, which is the bacteria that cause pimples and acne. At the same time, the laser energy also shrinks the oil glands in the skin and helps with oil control. Pimples and acne also tend to be less inflamed after laser treatments and this reduces the amount of acne marks after a breakout.
Tattoo removal – at a different wave length setting for the Q switch laser, this treatment is great for tattoo removal. Tattoo inks are foreign pigments introduced into the body. Like natural skin pigmentations, the laser energy breaks down the tattoo ink and removes the tattoo.
After the treatment, there is a cool face mask that will sit on your face for around 15-20 minutes. Total treatment time is around 45 mins – 1 hour. This client used to have very bad acne/pimples all around the chin and mouth area with enlarge pores over her nose and cheeks. After just a few sessions, her pores are tighten and fairer radiant skin. Acne/ pimples got a lot better and acne scars lightened.
Is there downtime?
The best part of the Q-switched laser is that it is effective with no downtime! A mild pinkish flush might be present for about 10-15mins after the laser. You can put on make-up immediately after a laser treatment and go straight back to work!
What can you expect?
- Nothing is 100%, but you can expect 70-90% clearance or lightening of your pigmentation.
- Very high success for clearance of acne marks.
- Prevention and treating of pimples and acne.
- Less outbreaks in future.
- Better oil control.
- Fairer and brighter skin.
- No down time
Time for each treatment?
Time saving: Usual Q-Switched laser treatments last for about 12-15mins and is done once every 3-4 weeks. A mask is then applied for 20 minutes. Total Treatment per session takes 1 hour. This saves time compared to no-frills laser treatments which only last for 1-2mins each and you would be advised to do these treatments up to 3-7 times a week.
What else should I do when I go for laser treatments?
Avoid sun tanning for the next 7-10 days. Also apply an appropriate sunscreen.
