Benefits of Erbium laser

Erbium lasers are powerful ablative lasers designed to remove the outer layers of the skin using a burst of energy. Laser resurfacing, also known as a laser peel, has advantages over other methods of resurfacing. Some of these advantages include less bleeding, more precision with the ability to target tiny areas like moles, and most importantly, a shorter recovery time. Patients who have had Erbium laser treatments recover twice as quickly as those who have had CO2 laser treatments. There is little burning of surrounding tissues. Side effects may include swelling, redness, and bruising, but this lasts for just a week. The dramatic resurfacing results this laser treatment yields may last up to five years!

We will determine the depth to which the erbium laser safely removes a layer of skin. The depth of treatment will depend on the skin condition, your desired outcome and expectation for downtime. Treating skin with a laser stimulates the growth of new collagen, which improves the skin’s thickness and resilience. The skin surface will also re-grow with fresh, healthy cells, giving your skin a younger, rejuvenated appearance.

As we age, the effects of sun damage and environmental pollutants take their toll on our skin, creating wrinkles and pigment irregularities, especially on our faces. An Erbium Laser Peel can be very successful at reducing or eliminating these conditions, and, in fact, it is the best way to address the problematic lines that occur around the mouth and eyes.

The Erbium Laser Peel is excellent for treating deep wrinkles, even in difficult to treat areas like around the mouth and eyes, scars, sun spots, actinic keratoses, and overall poor skin tone/texture. Because the Erbium laser is capable of deep laser peels, excellent results are typically achieved after one treatment.

The comfort level of laser resurfacing varies from patient to patient and depends largely on the depth of treatment. For shallow treatments, the procedure is often tolerated with the use of a topical and subcutaneous local anesthetic.

Immediately following the treatment, you may experience redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. Swelling may also occur in the treated areas. We will provide a specific post care treatment, which may include oral pain medication and application of an ointment to keep the skin moist.

The top layer of skin will re-grow and can be covered with makeup in about one week, at which time you will see noticeable improvements in your skin’s texture, tone, and wrinkle appearance. Deeper laser treatments also stimulate the growth of new collagen over the next four to six months. During this time, the skin may show increasing improvements in tightness and resilience.
