How does it work? A laser compromises of a concentrated energy beam that is made from a single wavelength of light. When exposed to the skin, it would be absorbed by skin pigments and is converted into heat energy. A thin layer of carbon is applied onto the skin during treatment and the laser would be absorbed by the carbon instead of the skin pigments. This results in the laser focusing on the epidermis and the layer of carbon is gently removed by a vacuum. There is an increase in collagen production due to the heat energy. The carbon particles would also aid in exfoliating pores and the heat destroys P-acne bacteria which are responsible for pimples, so there is better acne control.
