As we continue to age, we lose the elasticity in our skin -- there's less firmness. Collagen production dwindles, lines and wrinkles begin making greater statements in our appearance, and our skin begins to sag. Some of the issues of aging most often discussed in our consultations focus on what to do about wrinkling and sagging skin. Laxity of the brow, crow’s feet, laugh lines, and sagging skin on the neck and jowls are at the top the list of concerns.
The Carbon Laser Facial was once referred to as the China Doll facial. It has been a very popular treatment throughout Asia for a long time. This is probably because it was a safe laser treatment that offered patients the hope of brighter, more radiant skin and deep layer rejuvenation with less risk of hyper/hypo pigmentation, especially for people with darker skin types. This treatment had other benefits such as removing surface dirt, oil and dead skin cells and reducing the P. Acnes bacteria responsible for acne. It was perhaps, these benefits that brought it to the attention of the estheticians of Hollywood A-List celebrities, where it was dubbed the Hollywood Peel aka the Hollywood Laser Peel.
There's no getting around the fact that our skin is aging. As the largest organ in the body, we really should be treating our skin much better than we sometimes do. Between certain lifestyle choices - smoking, bad nutrition, and sunbathing, you know that sometimes we are our own worst enemy when it comes to caring for our skin. Even those who know plenty about skincare can make mistakes that inadvertently age our skin. To get and keep the best skin possible, you should avoid these five least mistakes that can age your skin.

Carbon Laser Facial is a great exfoliation, pore-reducing, skin-smoothing treatment that uses a carbon paste mask and low powered laser to lift away dead skin cells and stimulate collagen production. This treatment is also very effective for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. It’s amazing as a series or just as a “boost” for a special event (weddings, reunions, holiday parties).
