Hollywood Facial... Celebrity Glowing Skin

Want to enjoy the rejuvenating effects of laser resurfacing without the downtime? The Hollywood laser carbon peel, also known as a Spectra peel or carbon Hollywood facial, gives you clearer, smoother, younger-looking skin – with quick results and minimal recovery time.This highly requested procedure instantly creates a radiant, glowing appearance. It got its nickname as a “Hollywood Facial” due to its popularity among celebrities before walking the red carpet.

The carbon peel facial is virtually pain-free and can be performed on nearly any area of the body. It is mainly used for rejuvenating the face, neck, and hands. The Spectra laser peel can reduce all of the main seven signs of skin aging: lines/wrinkles, dark spots, sagging skin, dull skin, dryness, uneven skin tone, and open pores. It can also be effective in treating mild to moderate acne and acne scarring. As one of Dubai’s top aesthetic and dermatology clinics, Omnicare offers world-class Hollywood laser carbon peels.

How does it work?

A carbon laser peel facial utilizes a carbon-based cream and laser energy to remove impurities and the uppermost layer of skin, as well as to stimulate the skin’s natural healing response. Your provider will apply a dark-colored cream with a high carbon content to your skin and allow several minutes for it to dry. As the lotion dries, it bonds with dirt, oil, and contaminants on the surface of your skin. A laser is then used to eliminate the carbon and the impurities it has bonded to. This also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.
