Best Clarifying Laser Treatment
Simply Aesthetics Carbon Lazer Peel Facial
A unique treatment that combines a carbon peel with laser therapy to reveal an even skin tone while refining skin texture, which in turn reduces the appearance of enlarged pores. It starts with the application of a carbon cream that also works to absorb impurities deep within. Then the laser light breaks down the carbon cream, exfoliating the skin and removing the impurities while stimulating collagen production and reducing acne inflammation at the same time. The result: Your complexion looks brighter and even instantly.
