The Hollywood Peel by Lutronic is a laser carbon peel procedure done to help improve the look of skin. The procedure is virtually painless and has no downtime. The Hollywood Peel is used primarily by people with oily skin, acne, and enlarged or clogged pores. This treatment is also beneficial if you’re starting to see the effects of sun damage on your skin.
The Hollywood peel is used to treat:
- mild acne pigmentation and scarring
- large pores
- fine lines and wrinkles
The procedure starts with the application of a volcanic carbon paste on the skin. It is allowed to dry for 20 to 30 minutes. The first stage of the procedure is the heating stage. Lutronic uses a unique long-wavelength Q-switch laser to heat the carbon which in turn heats the skin thus promoting collagen stimulation and tightening. The second stage involves vaporizing the carbon which exfoliates the outer layer of dry dead skin. This improves pore size and gives the skin a healthier and more radiant appearance. Best results are always seen if the patient has a series of carbon peels over the course of 3-4 months. Chemical peels and fractional laser peels treat similar conditions but are in general more aggressive and result in some degree of downtime.
