Chemical peels and laser treatments aren’t just meant for the face. Your entire body is affected by the skin’s natural aging process and environmental factors like sun exposure that speed up premature aging. The Erbium laser peel offers many skin rejuvenating benefits for your face and body!
What is the Erbium Laser Facial?
This mild laser treatment exfoliates the top skin layers to resurface healthy, new skin cells. The erbium laser, which emits a 2940 nanometers wavelength, is drawn to the water in your skin and vaporizes a very fine skin layer from the surface.
This removes dead and damaged skin layers, allowing new skin rich in collagen to form, giving you a smoother and more even skin tone and texture.
What Can It Treat?
The Erbium laser is a great option for overall skin rejuvenation. However, since this is a light laser procedure, it is unsuitable for dealing with significant wrinkles or lines. If you want deep skin treatment, experts at First State MedSpa recommend a carbon dioxide laser.
- Sun damaged skin
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
These skin conditions can be addressed in several areas frequently exposed to the sun and harmful UV rays. This includes the face, neck, chest, and hands so you can receive full-body rejuvenation.
Am I a Good Candidate?
The Erbium laser peel is an excellent solution for pigmentation or sun damage on people with fairer skin types. Dark skin tones are at risk for skin discoloration and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation caused by laser energy. Patients should also be in overall good health without a history of cold sores or irregular scarring.
What To Expect During Treatment
At your initial consultation, your doctor will take photos for progress monitoring. They also monitor your skin and assess your specific concerns to determine whether you are a good candidate.
The procedure lasts about 30 minutes for each target area, depending on the issue and its severity, and multiple areas can be treated during one session. You will experience a sensation like a tiny warm rubber band snapping on your skin but this is not considered painful for most patients. A mild sunburned feeling and skin redness might occur after treatment but should improve within 1-2 days. While your skin is healing, it is important to avoid sun exposure since this could damage the newly resurfacing skin cells.
