what is a Carbon Laser Peel?
At Beyond Beautiful, we are proud to offer the innovative carbon laser peel treatment using the state-of-the-art PicoSure laser technology. For this procedure, a proprietary carbon mixture solution is applied to the skin prior to the administration of the laser handpiece. This carbon solution is effective at reducing pore size, eliminating excess oils and dirt, dead skin cells, and other unwanted particles on the surface of your skin. A carbon laser peel works for patients of various skin types in order to create smoother, clearer, and healthier skin. We invite you to learn more about this optimal treatment option by contacting our Plano, TX facility to meet with facial plastic surgeon Dr. Vu Ho.

"My dark circles are not even noticeable - I have been going to Dr Ho for almost a year now and I am so pleased with my results !! I have done the Ez gel and exosome procedures for my dark circles to opt for a more natural approach before going into fillers and I have seen a drastic improvement ! My dark circles are not even noticeable. I am now in my late twenties and have been seeing a lot of changes in my face, one of which is dark circles. I was extremely insecure about them, all my life I never wore make up and I found I couldn’t leave the house without it. Thanks to Dr Ho I can confidently go out without make up. I am very selective and critical when it comes to procedures and my face. Dr Ho is someone I can trust !!! Thank you Dr Ho !"- E. / RealSelf / Aug 10, 2023
am i a candidate for a Carbon Laser Peel?
Patients wanting to improve the overall texture, tone, and appearance of their skin are ideal candidates for a carbon laser peel with PicoSure technology. Over time, this procedure will work to stimulate the production of collagen, allowing for younger-looking skin and long-lasting results. During a thorough consultation at our Plano facility, we can work with you to determine the current condition of your skin and your goals in order to determine if you would benefit from this treatment.
how is a Carbon Laser Peel performed?
For your carbon laser peel treatment, you will lie comfortably in one of our spacious, relaxing minor procedure rooms. Before the laser is applied to your skin being treated, the carbon solution will be administered. This works to absorb all particles from the skin’s surface, including makeup, oil, dirt, and dead skin cells. After the carbon mixture has had time to sit on your skin, the PicoSure laser will be gently guided over the area. You should experience no discomfort, and a numbing agent is typically not necessary for this procedure. Following your carbon laser peel, we will make sure that all of the solution is effectively removed and you will be able to return to your normal daily activities.
how long is recovery after a carbon laser peel?
The results of your carbon laser peel are often noticeable immediately after your procedure. However, optimal results may take around 4 – 8 weeks to fully develop. There is no downtime associated with this treatment, and you can continue on with your day. Additionally, touch-up treatments may be needed in order to preserve your ideal results. During your consultation, we can talk with you about when to schedule additional follow-up appointments according to your personalized treatment plan.
