What is an Erbium Laser Resurfacing?
The erbium laser is primarily attracted to the water in skin. This causes a controlled ablation of a very fine layer of skin. This laser is used to resurface the skin and help to reduce wrinkles, treat acne scarring, and pigmentation problems. As a result of removing the superficial layers of skin, new collagen and skin are regenerated. This process leads to a reduction in wrinkles, and a more even tone and texture to the skin. Atrophic acne scars are also lessened. This treatment is for mild to moderate wrinkles. Recovery time is generally 3-5 days.
