Carbon Facial


Carbon Facials are an advanced skin rejuvenation treatment also commonly known as the "China Doll Facial" or "Hollywood Facial". By combining cutting-edge aesthetic technology with a special carbon cream, Carbon Facials work to reduce skin imperfections such as enlarged pores, pigmentation, acne scarring and fine lines, while offering an instantaneous glow to your complexion.


As Carbon Facial treatments ‘peels’ off the outer layer of dead skin cells, your skin is instantly exfoliated and deeply cleaned, resulting in a noticeably more radiant complexion after just one session. This is why Carbon Facials are a popular choice for celebrities and public personalities, as they can achieve an instant luminous glow before a big event when their skin has to look and feel its best.

Although you will notice an improvement to your skin after just one treatment, a course of treatments spaced at 4 week intervals is recommended for optimum skin corrective results.

What’s involved?

Carbon Facial treatment combines laser/IPL technology with a special carbon cream applied to the facial region. The laser/IPL and carbon cream work in synergy to reduce skin imperfections such as enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation, acne and expression lines, while also purifying and toning skin for an instantly radiant complexion.

Treatment is quick, non-invasive, and there’s no post-treatment downtime — so you can get back to work or your usual daily activities following your session. Some redness may occur, which will usually subside within a few hours. 

Am I suitable for a Carbon Facial Treatment?

Carbon Facials offer a gentle, yet highly effective, alternative to chemical peels and therefore an ideal treatment for most skin types. Carbon Facials are popular with men and women of all ages seeking solutions for acne, acne scarring, pigmentation and the signs of ageing. Your individual needs will be discussed during your consultation.

How many treatments do I need?

Although you will notice glowing results after just 1 treatment, a course of around 6 treatments is recommended for long-lasting anti-ageing effects, as well as clear, healthy skin for months to come.

How often can I get a Carbon Facial?

Treatments are spaced out 4 weeks apart (i.e once a month), in order to allow the skin regenerative process of the facial to take full effect.


What can I expect on the day of my facial?

Carbon Facials are performed on clean, makeup-free skin. The treatment takes around 30-40 minutes, and you are free to get on with your day as usual afterwards. Some skin redness may occur, but this will subside within a few hours. Following treatment, it is advised to apply SPF sunscreen for protection. 


Is it safe?

Yes, Carbon Facials are safe. A thorough skin consultation will be performed prior to the facial to ensure the treatment is adequately matched to your skin's needs.


Is it painful?

While you will feel a warm and tingly sensation during treatment, it is not painful. Most clients comfortably undergo treatment without the need for topical numbing creams.
