    Lasers made their debut in skincare several decades ago, targeting birthmarks, scars, and tattoos with unparalleled precision. The 1980s and 1990s witnessed increased innovation, exploring diverse laser types, from skin-ablating varieties to those stimulating collagen without surface damage.

    Within this era of exploration, the union of carbon and lasers was conceptualized. Carbon’s innate ability to bind with skin impurities meant that, when combined with laser targeting, a deep clean was achievable. While initial reactions in the aesthetic community varied, advancements in both carbon formulations and laser technology throughout the 2000s solidified the facial’s reputation and efficacy.

    Today, especially in metropolises like NYC, carbon laser facials, also known as the Hollywood facial, Black Doll facial, and China Doll facial have evolved from a novel technique to a staple in many aesthetic clinics, lauded for both deep cleansing and collagen stimulation.

    Charcoal laser facials ride on the powerful collaboration between an innovative carbon cream and the Q-Switch Nd-Yag laser. Here’s how they team up:

    Carbon Cream’s Dual Role: Applied first, this carbon cream serves a dual purpose. It potentiates the laser’s effect on the epidermis, ensuring no layer is missed by the 1064nm Nd-Yag wavelength. Activated carbon, known for its adsorptive properties, binds to skin impurities like a magnet. When applied topically, it ensures deep cleansing by capturing pollutants, oils, and penetrating even the smallest pores.

    Nd-Yag Laser’s Precision: Unique in its ability, this laser focuses energy precisely where the dermal and epidermal layers meet and is specifically tuned to carbon particles. It targets the pilosebaceous unit, known for excessive oil production, leading to shrunken pores and regulated sebum production.

    Vaporization & Regeneration: Utilizing the Nd:YAG, a type of Q-switched laser known for emitting high-intensity short pulses, the procedure ensures precise carbon targeting while minimizing potential skin damage. As the laser moves over the skin, it causes specific damage to deeper skin layers while priming the carbon lotion to soak up skin impurities. The laser’s enhanced power due to the carbon results in the carbon’s instant vaporization, taking with it the undesirables from the pores. This controlled damage triggers the body’s natural rejuvenation processes, bolstering collagen and elastin production. The result is firmer skin, minimized pores, and balanced oiliness.


    • A Solution for Multiple Skin Concerns: This facial addresses issues like uneven pigmentation, age spots, and fine lines, paving the way for a more even and refined skin texture.
    • Acne Treatment: Acne affects nearly 85% of people at some point. China doll laser facials, harnessing activated carbon and the Nd:YAG laser, directly target acne’s root causes by vaporizing impurities in clogged pores and shrinking the pilosebacious gland. Offering a non-invasive approach with fewer side effects and longer-lasting results compared to traditional treatments, it stands out as an effective solution for both treating and preventing acne-related concerns.
    • Deep Cleansing the Pores: Proper pore cleansing is crucial for maintaining skin health and preventing blemishes. Carbon laser peels delve deep into the skin to effectively clear out impurities within pores. This technique’s depth and precision set it apart from traditional pore-cleansing methods, offering a more thorough and lasting cleanse for radiant, healthy skin.
    • Collagen Boost for Youthful Skin: The Nd:YAG laser penetrates deep skin layers, enhancing collagen production—a pivotal protein for skin elasticity and youthfulness.
    • Immediate and Lasting Impact: After just one session, many notice a distinct brightness and clarity in their complexion. With regular treatments, these effects are amplified, leading to prolonged skin health and vibrancy.


    In NYC’s competitive skincare landscape, selecting the right practitioner and facility is crucial. Dr. Schwarzburg of Skinly Aesthetics stands out due to his extensive expertise and a track record of successful treatments. His deep understanding of the carbon laser facial procedure ensures personalized treatments that align with each client’s unique needs.

    At Skinly Aesthetics, clients experience a blend of state-of-the-art technology and individualized care. Under Dr. Schwarzburg’s leadership, the focus remains on delivering effective results and a positive patient experience. Opting for Dr. Schwarzburg and Skinly Aesthetics means entrusting your skin to a team that prioritizes both quality and client satisfaction in NYC.


    The Hollywood peel isn’t limited to just the face. Its precision and efficacy allow it to be used on multiple areas of the body, addressing various skin concerns. Common treatment zones include:

    • Face
    • Neck
    • Décolleté
    • Back
    • Arms
    • Hands. 

    Whether targeting enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, or oiliness, the carbon laser offers a versatile solution for revitalizing and rejuvenating the skin across diverse areas.



    Ideal Candidates: The black doll facial caters to a wide spectrum of skin needs, making it a go-to solution for:

    • Individuals looking to combat early signs of aging.
    • People with oily skin or those prone to acne.
    • Individuals experiencing breakout episodes, like hormonal acne.
    • Anyone seeking improved skin texture, tone, and radiance.
    • Those wanting to reduce scars, fine lines, and minimize pores.
    • Individuals across all age groups seeking skin benefits.
    • Those needing to exfoliate dry skin or eliminate comedone extractions.
    • Those looking for a low-maintenance treatment with minimal downtime and little pain.

    Contraindications: While the treatment boasts extensive benefits, there are specific conditions and factors to consider ensuring safety and optimum results.

    • Heat-sensitive individuals.
    • People with dry, irritated skin or dermal conditions.
    • Those with melasma or infections in the treatment area.
    • Users of tretinoin, salicylic acids, or retinoids must halt usage two weeks before treatment to prevent skin dryness, irritation, and pigmentation issues.


    Known for its non-invasive nature and mild laser intensity, the Hollywood facial typically requires minimal prep. However, to ensure optimal results and candidacy, Dr. Schwarzburg recommends the following:

    • Discontinue the use of specific prescription medications and skincare products containing tretinoin, retinoids, and salicylic acids.
    • Limit direct exposure to the sun for two weeks prior to your appointment.
    • If spending time outdoors or in sunlit areas, apply high SPF sunscreen to protect your skin.


    Unlocking the secrets of rejuvenated skin begins with understanding each pivotal step of the Carbon Laser Facial at Skinly Aesthetics:

    • Preparations: The skin is cleansed thoroughly to remove any surface impurities. This ensures the carbon lotion applied next has a clean slate to adhere to.
    • Carbon Application: A thin layer of carbon lotion is spread across the treatment area, which acts as an essential medium for the laser.
    • Laser Engagement: Using the Nd:YAG laser, controlled light pulses target the carbon particles. As the carbon absorbs the light, it bursts, taking away dead skin cells, contaminants, and oil.
    • Post-Laser Cleanse: After the laser procedure, the face is cleansed again to remove any remaining carbon residue.
    • Soothing the Skin: A soothing gel or lotion may be applied to calm the skin. This step aids in reducing redness and offers hydration.


    The carbon laser facial, known for its non ablative technique, typically presents minimal side effects:

    • Transient Symptoms: Some redness may appear post-treatment, with possible brief periods of dryness or minor peeling. Regular moisturization will mitigate these effects.
    • The Importance of Expertise: To avoid complications like burns or hyperpigmentation, it’s vital to have the procedure done by a licensed, board-certified doctor.
    • Dr. Schwarzburg’s Assurance: As the medical director at NYC’s Skinly Aesthetics, Dr. Schwarzburg has successfully conducted numerous carbon peels, ensuring both safety and optimal results.
    • Post-Treatment Guidelines: Patients are typically advised to avoid direct sunlight, wear high SPF sunscreen, and steer clear of aggressive skin products for 3-5 days. Makeup should be avoided for 24-48 hours. 


    The China doll laser facial is a journey of gradual skin transformation, offering both immediate and long-term rewards. Here’s a concise guide on what to expect after your Carbon Laser Peel:

    • Quick Session Time: Known as a lunch-break procedure, a standard session typically lasts between 10-20 minutes, making it a convenient option even for those with a busy schedule.
    • Treatment Plan and Number of Sessions Needed: Starting with 4-6 sessions over the course of 3 – 6 weeks ensures foundational results. Thereafter, maintenance treatments every 3-6 months keep the skin in prime condition.
    • Visible Outcomes and Longevity of Results: Even after just one session, expect enhanced skin texture and glow. Regular treatments compound these benefits, addressing uneven tone, lines, oiliness and dilated pores more effectively in the long run.


    Endorsed by the FDA for various skin types, the carbon laser peel is renowned for its safety and efficacy. This gentle procedure eliminates the need for numbing creams, offering a nearly painless experience. While it can be safely administered twice a week depending on its intensity, side effects remain minimal, typically limited to brief redness or light peeling. To maximize safety and results, choosing a seasoned professional for the treatment is paramount.

    • Wrinkle Solutions: NYC’s Botox injections target deeper lines by reducing facial muscle activity, curbing wrinkle formation.
