Charcoal Masks and Other Black Magic

Charcoal Masks and Other Black Magic

This is a laser and peel combined in the same procedure. First a carbon solution (similar to charcoal) is applied to the face, then a laser is used to heat the carbon and help it penetrate the skin, and then a second pass with the laser removes the carbon resulting in a resurfacing and exfoliating effect. Questions? Schedule your complimentary consultation for this procedure at our Upper East Side office location.
