The Carbon Peel Laser Treatment, also known as the Carbon Laser Peel or Hollywood Peel, is a non-invasive procedure designed to address various skin concerns and improve overall skin health. This treatment involves the use of a medical-grade laser to target the outermost layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production, rejuvenating the complexion and regulate the bacteria on the skin calming down the acne. It’s one of our most popular treatments here at Eve Clinics in Leamington Spa. 

The Carbon Peel Laser Treatment is a relatively quick and straightforward procedure that typically takes around 30 minutes. Here is a step-by-step breakdown of the treatment process:  

Cleansing and Preparation: The skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove any impurity, oil, or makeup residue. A topical carbon solution is then applied to the treatment area, which penetrates deep into the pores and absorbs all the impurities and bacteria.  

Laser Application: Our laser specialist uses a handheld laser device to emit short, concentrated pulses of light onto the skin’s surface. The laser energy is absorbed by the carbon particles, creating a controlled thermal effect.  

Carbon Vaporisation: As the laser energy is absorbed, it vaporises the carbon particles. This process gently exfoliates the outermost layer of dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and removes impurities and blackheads. 

Thermal Stimulation: The laser energy stimulates collagen production within the skin, promoting skin rejuvenation and tightening.  

Skin Rejuvenation: The Carbon Peel Laser Treatment effectively removes dead skin cells, unclogs pores, and improves overall skin texture, resulting in a brighter, smoother, and more youthful complexion.  

Acne and Oil Control: The treatment is highly beneficial for individuals with acne-prone or oily skin. The carbon solution used in the procedure has a strong affinity for oil, effectively absorbing excess sebum, bacteria and reducing the appearance of acne and blackheads. The laser is suitable on most areas of the body and acts as a bacteria regulator. Many choose to have the treatment on back acne, or ‘bacne’ as this is a typical area of the body where pustules appear. The laser is safe for the face with many reporting an improvement in acne visibility after just one session. 


Pore Minimization: The laser energy and carbon particles work together to deeply cleanse and tighten the pores, minimising their appearance and improving the overall skin tone and texture.  

Pigmentation Reduction: Carbon Peel Laser Treatment can be effective in reducing the appearance of pigmentation issues such as sunspots and age spots. The laser energy targets the excess melanin in the skin, breaking it down and promoting a more even skin tone.  

Skin Brightening: By promoting cellular turnover and collagen production, the treatment helps in achieving a brighter and more radiant complexion. It can reduce the appearance of dullness, fine lines, and wrinkles, giving the skin a youthful glow.  

One of the significant advantages of Carbon Peel Laser Treatment is its minimal downtime and low risk of side effects. The procedure is generally well-tolerated, with patients experiencing only mild redness or warmth in the treated area immediately after the session. This typically subsides within a few hours, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities with little to no disruption. While noticeable results can be achieved after a single session of Carbon Peel Laser Treatment, a series of treatments is usually recommended for optimal outcomes. The exact number of sessions will vary depending on individual skin concerns and goals, and a skincare professional at our Leamington Spa clinic will assess and determine the most suitable treatment plan for each patient. 

All patients will first attend a specialist consultation with one of our team to determine which treatment is best for their individual concerns, and how many sessions are needed. It is not uncommon for us to recommend a series of different treatments to achieve the best results possible. We will start by taking your full medical history and carry out a patch test to rule out any kind of allergic reaction.  

After the procedure itself, you’ll be invited to relax in our clinic before being supplied with the best steps to take after treatment. Once you leave the clinic, if you follow the aftercare advice given, your results will be enhanced. 

Luckily, the Carbon Peel Laser treatment comes with very little downtime and you do not have to do anything to prepare for treatment. Your skin may be a little sensitive in the days following treatment, but this will subside. 

We only use the very best equipment and medical graded accredited by the UK authorities.  

Frequently Asked Questions

A carbon peel laser treatment, also known as a carbon laser peel or a Hollywood peel, is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that uses a laser to target and treat various skin concerns.
