Erbium Laser Peel
Are you looking for an effective treatment to refresh your skin, giving it the pick-me-up it needs? If so, the erbium laser peel may be an effective option! This treatment can improve the overall look and feel of the skin, as well as soften signs of aging for a dramatic improvement in your complexion.
What is an Erbium Laser Peel?
An erbium laser peel, also known as erbium laser resurfacing, is a non-surgical procedure that uses laser technology to remove the outermost layers of dead and dull skin. This allows for new skin cells to grow, helping to improve overall skin texture and tone for a beautiful complexion. This treatment can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
The erbium laser offers many benefits, including:
- Treats fine lines and wrinkles
- Improves hyperpigmentation
- Reverses sun damage
The Erbium Laser Peel Treatment
To begin treatment, your skin will be cleansed and a numbing cream will be applied. The erbium laser will then be placed on specific areas to address your individual concerns. The laser will interact with the water in the body to damage skin cells, triggering the body’s healing process. This jumpstarts collagen and elastin production for firmer, healthier, more youthful skin.
Who is a Candidate?
Healthy individuals who are interested in rejuvenating their skin and combating signs of early aging can often benefit from this treatment. The erbium laser peel works best on individuals with lighter skin tones, as they pose less risk for skin discoloration. Individuals who have a history of cold sores or irregular scarring, have taken isotretinoin medication for acne in the past six months, smoke or use tobacco, or have chronic health issues that may impact the body’s ability to heal should not undergo this treatment. Please contact our office to schedule a consultation appointment if you would like to learn more about candidacy.
Following your erbium laser peel, you may experience mild swelling, redness, and discomfort for the first few days. As the skin heals, you may experience peeling or flaking, though you should avoid peeling away dead skin or scratching the skin, as this may increase your risk for infection and scarring. The healing process may take 1-2 weeks. Be sure to apply moisturizer throughout the day to keep the skin moisturized and improve comfort.
We will provide you with specific instructions regarding recovery to ensure you see the best results! Significant results may be seen after one treatment, though some people may need several treatments for ideal outcomes.
