What Do We Say to Carbon/ Activated Charcoal?

Yes, Yes, Yes!

Carbon has been found to be a miracle worker for the body, it eliminates many toxins that are trapped inside us. People are using it for  their teeth, also as a detox and most of all scrubbing their skin, and hair with it.

We want to talk a little more about how it helps the skin, specifically your beautiful face that you want to be taking care of. Like I mentioned it eliminates toxins, that means those little blackheads that you might have will be absorbed by this wonderfully yucky stuff.

By saying goodbye to the toxins and dirt trapped in your pores you are also saying goodbye to acne, dehydration, inflammation and even aging skin. But the secret formal is to use carbon/activated charcoal with laser treatment.

When this black substance is used with a laser facial it not only lifts those toxins it makes them disappear as well. The laser will absorb the carbon along with any dirt or toxins it has grabbed a hold of. This only leaves room for squeaky clean pores, but your face won't exactly squeak after this treatment if feels more like heavenly soft glowing baby skin.

And who doesn't want baby skin?!?

So add Carbon Laser Facials to your calendar, because we suggest it seasonly!
