"Hollywood" Carbon Peel

Black Line Studio is pleased to offer the Spectra™ Carbon Peel in Toronto!

Often referred to as the “Hollywood facial,” the Spectra™ carbon facial peel is a revolutionary laser treatment which delivers the benefits of aggressive skin rejuvenation procedures instantly, without the discomfort or downtime typically associated with such treatments. The Spectra™ carbon facial peel allows you to save time and money while still reaping the same results.

The Spectra™ carbon peel is an essential part of many A-list celebrities’ beauty regimes and is presently one of the most coveted treatments in Hollywood, which is now available in Toronto. The peel rejuvenates and stimulates dull or damaged skin, instantly revealing a more youthful and glowing complexion. Customized treatment plans for the face and body may advise a single session for a quick pre-event glow, or on-going treatments for anti-aging and repair of skin conditions including acne scars, enlarged pores, pigmentation and fine lines.

Carbon Peel Procedure

During your Spectra™ carbon peel treatment, a layer of liquid carbon is applied to the area of skin requiring treatment. The laser light is then passed over the area, causing the carbon to vaporize and remove dead skin cells, contaminants, and oil. Those with oily skin, blackheads, enlarged pores, dull skin, and acne on the face or body instantly benefit from a refreshed appearance. Clients see softer, smoother, and firmer skin almost instantly.

Overview of Benefits


The liquid carbon material applied during the start of your procedure absorbs oil and impurities from deep within the pores. When the laser targets and destroys the carbon particles, the absorbed material goes with it.


Carbon peels penetrate the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, which results in firmer, plumper, more radiant skin and a reduction of fine lines.


The laser is highly attracted to the carbon substance. When it passes along the treatment area, it exfoliates while removing dead skin cells and blackheads. The result is smoother, glowing skin with reduced pore size and an improved, even skin tone.

Acne and Oil Destroying

The heat omitted by the laser during the carbon peel reduces the bacteria responsible for acne, allowing for improved control of pimples and outbreaks. The heat also shrinks the sebaceous glands, reducing oil production and congestion in the pores.
