The Hollywood peel, also known as the carbon peel or carbon laser peel, is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin. It is a popular treatment among celebrities and is named after its popularity in Hollywood.

The process of a Hollywood peel typically involves the following steps:

  1. Cleansing: Before the procedure begins, the skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup.
  2. Application of carbon lotion: A thin layer of carbon lotion is applied to the skin. The carbon particles in the lotion help to absorb impurities and oil from the skin’s surface.
  3. Laser treatment: Once the carbon lotion is applied, a laser is used to heat and vaporize the carbon particles. The laser energy is attracted to the carbon particles, causing them to explode and exfoliate the outermost layer of the skin. The laser also stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin.
  4. Multiple passes: The laser is passed over the skin multiple times to ensure thorough exfoliation and treatment of the entire area.
  5. Cooling and soothing: After the laser treatment, a cooling mask or soothing serum may be applied to the skin to help calm any redness or irritation.

The Hollywood peel is a relatively quick procedure, typically taking around 30 minutes to complete. It is generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort or downtime. Some individuals may experience a mild tingling or warmth during the laser treatment, but this sensation is temporary.

The Hollywood peel is known for its immediate results, as it provides a deep exfoliation and leaves the skin looking smoother, brighter, and more radiant. It can help to improve the appearance of acne, acne scars, enlarged pores, fine lines, and uneven skin tone.

Multiple sessions of the Hollywood peel may be recommended to achieve optimal results, depending on the individual’s skin concerns and goals. It is important to consult with a trained professional to determine if the Hollywood peel is suitable for your skin type and to ensure safety and optimal results.
