what is a Carbon Laser Peel?
At Beyond Beautiful Texas, 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.
"Sarah was thorough, professional and kind. The atmosphere is relaxing and the med spa was spotless."- S.S. / Google / Nov 01, 2019
"The results were immediate and the bruising post op was minimal - Sorry for the long review in advance but I want to be thorough! I am in my mid 30’s and have had under eye bags for as long as I can remember. It’s been something that has always bothered me and I hated seeing myself in pictures. Looking at my parents I knew genetics were not on my side, then when family and strangers started asking me why my under eyes were swollen I knew I had to get it fixed PRONTO!So my search for the perfect surgeon commenced… I found Dr. Ho on RealSelf and liked his work, I quickly made a consultation and right off the bat I was pleased with how friendly his staff was. The day of my consult arrives and Dr. Ho comes into the room and immediately makes me feel at ease. He took his time and discussed all the options, I shared my concerns and he answered all my questions and most importantly, he didn’t try to up-sell me on any other procedures. Feeling confident I was in the right hands I scheduled the soonest possible appointment for the surgery and we were off! The day of the surgery his staff were super sweet and excited for me, I opted to only do local anesthesia, the procedure was quick, relatively painless and the best part, no stitches! The results were immediate and the bruising post op was minimal! I couldn’t be happier!! My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner!I’ve been back to Dr. Ho a few of times since for follow up appointments and to get lip filler, which were best and most natural results I’ve ever had. I am still completely amazed and grateful at level of skill and professionalism of Dr. Ho and his amazing staff who are the most encouraging and supportive group of women I have encountered! I highly recommend Dr. Ho at Beyond Beautiful!"- S. / RealSelf / Apr 25, 2022
"This post is long overdue. I have been seeing Sarah for over a year now. She is the medical esthetician. She not only is kind and sincere but extremely well versed and talented in her work. I don’t get in as often as I should, but when I do, the experience is relaxing and enjoyable. I always leave feeling amazing. Her conversations are delightful and her work is pristine. She always takes her time and my skin is glowing when I leave. If your looking for a esthetician that exceeded your expectations then you need to see Sarah. You can tell she loves what she does."- W.A. / Google / Mar 29, 2022
"Highly recommend Dr Vu Ho! This doctor is an artist and Will do a wonderful job at any of the services he can suggest. Highly recommend booking a consultation with him for any of your aesthetic needs!"- T.B. / Yelp / Mar 08, 2022
"Love how naturally Bellafill enhances my facial features - I was looking to get PDO threads to lift my skin just slightly and Dr. Ho recommended BellaFill instead. I was a bit nervous since it's a permanent filler, but the results were fantastic and super natural! I've done fillers in the past and hate that they go away with time. I love how naturally BellaFill enhances my facial features and that it will last for many years to come. Dr. Ho and Glory work together as a team which I think is very clever since one person alone can be biased. They are very careful not to overdo it which I appreciate and I learned so much about facial anatomy with them! This has been by far the best experience I've had with a filler."- F. / RealSelf / Feb 24, 2022
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.

Does a carbon laser peel hurt?
