What is the PicoSure® Charcoal Peel?
Do you struggle with age spots, discoloration, and other skin texture issues? At Helio Health & Wellness, we offer a range of laser treatments to help address these issues. Until now, our PicoSure® laser was the only method of improving skin. While this laser system is exceptionally good at rejuvenating skin, it is less effective for those with lighter complexions. This is because lighter skin has less chromophore saturation and therefore doesn’t absorb as much of the energy from the treatment. Thankfully, we now offer our PicoSure® Charcoal Peel treatment to tackle issues on even the lightest of skin tones.
How Does PicoSure® Charcoal Peel Work?
The innovative PicoSure® Charcoal Peel treatment offered at our center combines organic charcoal with laser technology. A charcoal mask rich with carbon particles is first applied to absorb dirt, oil, dead cells, and sebum. This process is bolstered by the addition of the PicoSure® laser. When applied in tandem with charcoal, this treatment rejuvenates your complexion, breaking down bacteria, lightly exfoliating your skin, and brighten any skin type.
What Does This Treatment Address?
This treatment combination is an excellent choice for those struggling with hyperpigmentation issues or aging skin signs. While PicoSure® skin revitalization is certainly great on its own, the addition of charcoal can heighten the beneficial effects. When you arrive at our center, Dr. Neyman’s staff will provide you with a thorough skin evaluation to determine if the addition of charcoal to your session is necessary.
What Can I Expect?
Unlike a standard PicoSure® treatment that relies on light energy to transform the skin, the PicoSure® Charcoal Peel features a two-step process. First, we apply a special, carbon-rich charcoal mask to the surface of your skin and allow it to dry over several minutes. This non-toxic mask has a similar texture to mud and features a dark grey-brown coloring. Afterward, we direct the PicoSure® laser to your target areas to clear away the mask and your pigmentation concerns. This entire process takes roughly an hour.
What Are the Results of PicoSure® Charcoal Treatment?
Following your visit, you will notice tighter, brighter skin that looks and feels completely refreshed. There’s hardly any discomfort during the process or after, therefore numbing cream is usually not necessary. The results are instantaneous and improve over the next 4-8 weeks as your skin naturally heals. In some cases, additional treatment sessions may be necessary for the best results.
