Erbium Skin Resurfacing

Revitalize and Resurface Your Skin with the Erbium Laser.

This laser helps to improve multiple skin conditions such as superficial to mid-level sun damage, pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, poor texture and tone on the face, neck, chest and hands. This unique laser can also be used to treat smaller sections such as eyes or mouth area.

How It Works:
Human skin is made up of approximately 64% water. The Erbium laser energy is attracted to the water in our skin. The energy is then captured in the epidermis and dermis skin layers creating a thermal injury which causes changes in the skin. Once injured, the skin begins a very rapid process of repair.

It will precisely ablate the outermost layer of the skin (epidermis) to reveal new and improved skin that is smoother and younger looking. It can be used as a preventative or corrective treatment. The treatment can also activate a collagen response to promote further tightening of the skin.

A great benefit to the Erbium Laser is less downtime than the deeper lasers. Typically, you can resume your normal daily routine by day 3 or 4.

Am I a candidate?
The Erbium laser works great for all skin types and unlike many lasers, it can be done most darker skin tones.

How many treatments do I need?
Significant results can be seen after one treatment. However, a series of treatments may be recommended to achieve optimal results for more severe conditions. This treatment can be performed every 4 to 6 weeks or as directed by a provider.

What are the side effects?
Minimal – Patients can expect to be red/brown with possible swelling for 1-3 days post treatment. Make up can be applied after 3 days.
