About Carbon Laser Peel Treatments

At Dermature we use Sharplight Omnimax S4 for Carbon Laser Peel for clients concerned about wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and irregular skin texture.

We perform our Carbon Laser Peel using Nd:YAG Q Switched Laser. The benefits of this procedure include improving the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. It can also help stimulate collagen production for firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

What to expect


60 minutes

Recommended Sessions

In general, we recommend 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart.

The thermal effect produced by the laser has the ability to stimulate collagen production (plumping the skin), minimizes pore size, clarifies the skin of congestion and improves rough texture leaving a flawless and youthful looking glow to the skin. This treatment is safe, non-invasive, pain-free and suitable for most skin types.
