Hollywood Peel – Red carpet ready

Hollywood Peel is a facial exfoliating treatment that combines activated carbon and Nd Yag laser for global rejuvenation and visible skin improvement

The Hollywood Peel is an advanced mineral peel that blends the power of an activated carbon mask with the precision of the latest Q-switched rejuvenating laser technology – Nd Yag 1064 nm QS/1230 nm QS – to be precise.
Each form of light, like lasers, IPL, and LEDs, has a distinct wavelength. This specific wavelength determines both the light’s colour and how different types of pigments (chromophores) absorb its energy. This allows precise control over the targeted colours and depths when treating conditions like hair, spots, and varicose veins.
Firstly, a black carbon cream is applied, customised for your skin’s needs. Its tiny particles penetrate pores, targeting wrinkles, scars and any blemishes you want to tackle. Then, the Q-switched laser comes into play. Its carefully calibrated light interacts with the charcoal, gently heating the water content of the cream and then breaking down the carbon into fine particles without damaging the surrounding tissue. This process triggers two key effects:
The first is a medium-deep exfoliation and deep cleansing of the outermost layer of the epidermis, known as the ‘horny layer’. This is ideal for oily and acne-prone skin as it reduces sebum and oil secretion by shrinking pores, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion. Secondly, it stimulates collagen production, plumping fine lines and wrinkles, leaving your skin visibly firmer and younger-looking. Scars and blemishes also fade, revealing a more even and radiant tone.
Hollywood Peel is a virtually painless and non-invasive procedure. By stimulating cellular regeneration, it aims to revitalise and refresh the appearance of your face. However, as with other light treatments, it’s important to note some precautions. To avoid unwanted pigmentation, steer clear of sun exposure, UVA rays, and dermabrasion for two weeks before treatment. Additionally, if you take any medication, consult your doctor first, as some drugs can increase sun sensitivity. Lastly, if you have any active inflammation or infection on your face, it’s best to postpone the treatment until things clear up.
The treatment is a low-pain or minimally uncomfortable procedure which only takes about 30 minutes. Should you experience any mild inflammation, itching, discomfort, or redness after the treatment, you can apply a cold compress or use repair and regeneration creams, as recommended by your doctor.
