Steps with the Hollywood Laser Peel
- Firstly, we activate the carbon with the laser and fuse the carbon into the pores, dead skin and oils on the surface of the skin. This can feel warm or hot in some areas, although it is otherwise comfortable.
- We then blast off the carbon along with the unwanted residue from the skin using the second part of the laser. This process is very comfortable but sound from the carbon being removed is audible.
- Finally, we adjust and apply the laser to a setting suited to your skin’s unique needs. For example, if you have post-inflammatory erythema, we will treat the skin with settings specifically to reduce redness.

How is the Hollywood Laser Peel performed?
The Hollywood Laser Peel is performed by Dermal Clinican/Therapist at Pavilion Cosmetic Medicine in Crows Nest, utilising a Hollywood Spectra laser by Lutronic.
As a first step, we apply a carbon lotion to the skin – which is then fused into the pores using the laser to address pores, dead skin and oils found on the skin’s surface. This process has been described as warm, yet comfortable.
The carbon is then blasted off together with the dead skin cells – and again, the process is very comfortable.
As a final step, the laser setting is configured to optimally suit your skin’s unique concerns. For example, if you have post-inflammatory erythema, we will treat the skin with settings specifically to reduce redness.
