What Is An Erbium Laser Peel?
The Erbium:YAG Laser Peel is the latest evolution in laser skin renewal technology. This exciting procedure will leave you with smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin.
The Erbium Peel is a state-of-the-art laser treatment that offers improvement to fine lines, freckles and skin discoloration by gently removing a superficial layer of skin. It is a safe, fast and effective way to achieve a fresh new look.
In addition to its beneficial effects to the outer layers of the skin, it also stimulates collagen production and remodeling in the deeper layers. The procedure is more controlled than a chemical peel and it avoids the use of harsh chemicals to refine the skin.
Specific benefits for aged and photo-damaged skin include improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, reduction of brown spots and scars, and an overall tightening of the skin. Makeup will go on smoother and you will feel and look younger. The procedure is more controlled than a chemical peel and it avoids the use of harsh chemicals to refine the skin.
There are two manners in which we perform the Erbium Laser Peel:
What Advantages Does The Erbium Laser Have?
The Erbium laser is very gentle. It is probably the most popular resurfacing type of laser used today. It allows for a very rapid healing time (about seven days) and shorter period of redness compared with the carbon-dioxide laser. While fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, blotchy dark irregularities and acne scarring can be improved, minor skin tightening occurs.
What Happens After The Procedure?
For approximately two days your skin may be pink and peeling. Immediately after the peel, specialty products are recommended specific to your skin and are available at our clinic. These products are to be applied according to our instructions. You may apply our Dermacia foundation after 24 hours because it increases oxygenation and promotes healing.
What Are The Expected Results?
Reduction of fine wrinkles and/or elimination of some brown spots.
Skin Care Follow Up: Following your peel we will schedule a complimentary skin care consultation to monitor your progress.
