What to expect

  • There are some risks related to the procedure, as with any aesthetic procedure. Although complications of Hollywood carbon peel procedure are rare and usually self-limiting but can include discomfort and mild residual redness or mild burning which may occur within the first three days after the procedure but should resolve quickly.
  • There is no downtime following a Carbon Laser Peel with results appearing even following one session. 
  • A course of treatment might be recommended depending on your skin condition and desired results. 
  • Mild residual redness or mild burning may occur but should resolve over the next 24-72 hours. You will notice your skin may be slightly reddened and swollen if blisters please call us.
  • You will notice your skin will start to flake and peel, it is crucial you do NOT pick, or “help” remove the skin as this could lead to scarring and/or pigmentary changes. Apply recommended cream to dry areas.
