Total Laser Resurfacing

Procedure Description
Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing is the ideal treatment for those who would like to achieve dramatic improvement in the appearance of their skin. This procedure successfully removes superficial lines to moderately deep wrinkles with less pain, fewer side-effects, and a more rapid recovery than other treatments. An erbium laser provides a milder and less invasive treatment option than carbon dioxide (C02), a very low risk for hypo or hyper pigmentation with half of the recovery time and redness.


How does Erbium Laser Resurfacing work?
Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing precisely ablates the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) to reveal the underlying skin that is smoother and younger looking. The procedure also activates collagen to promote further tightening of the skin. The procedure is individually tailored to meet each patient’s specific condition to be corrected: wrinkles, perioral lines (zipper lines), periorbital lines (crow’s feet), scars, skin tone and texture and pigmentation conditions. Our Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment is performed in the office by a fully trained professional. When the Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing is complete, a regimen of after treatment skin care will be explained to you and products to apply will be provided.

Who is a candidate for Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing?
A candidate for Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing is someone who is seeking to correct fine lines and wrinkles in the face, neck, back, chest, or hands. The erbium laser resurfacing treatment is available to a wide variety of candidates. Those seeking this procedure should desire to look younger and more refreshed and should be realistic in their expectations. While Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing provides incredible results, the expected outcome will be fully explained to the patient.

Benefits of Erbium Laser Treatment:
Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing has been found safe and effective by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the effective treatment of fine lines and moderate wrinkles. Those patients who have already undergone laser skin resurfacing to enhance their look and improve their self-confidence now find themselves with greatly improved, smoother, and younger-looking skin. Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing has also been shown to stimulate the production of collagen, which further smoothes and tightens the skin.

Is Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing safe?
Even if the Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing provides a highly effective treatment for fine lines and wrinkles with a shorter recovery period and fewer side effects, those receiving treatment should still expect their skin to appear pink or red after the procedure. Some crusting or swelling may occur as well.

How is Erbium Full Laser Skin Resurfacing different from Microdermabrasion or MicroLaserPeel?
Erbium Laser Resurfacing can accomplish in one treatment what Microdermabrasion or MicroLaserPeel can accomplish in three. A typical peel treatment only removes the outer layers of the skin. Patients may become frustrated or dissatisfied when they hit a plateau or when it is necessary to undergo several MicroLaserPeel treatments due to the severity of their skin conditions. Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing is a minimal to full epidermal peel. Although, this procedure ablates deeper into the epidermis, it is the perfect step above microdermabrasion and micro laser peels.

How often does Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing need to be done?
We will help you determine how many Laser Skin Resurfacing peels you will need depending on the condition of your skin. One procedure could be sufficient for most patients but additional procedures may be performed as required. We may advise a series of Superficial MicroLaserPeel to achieve optimal results.

What results can the patient expect from Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing?
You can expect healthier, smoother, clearer more vibrant skin. You will notice a significant and immediate change in skin texture and tightness when compared to microdermabrasion alone.

Is there any anaesthesia used?
Generally, no, however sedation is an option and will be determined, if needed, for your specific Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing. Topical aesthetic creams are often used in conjunction with dental blocks for better comfort.

Do I have to wear any type of dressing or bandage after the procedure?
No. We will provide you with the proper recovery products and instructions needed during the duration of your healing time. The recovery products will include a gentle cleanser, skin barrier, hyper emollient cream and a total SPF 45-60 sun block. We may also recommend a mineral make-up which can be used during the recovery process. You may also use this make-up as part of your future daily regiment for its natural properties.

How long is the healing process?
The healing process varies from patient to patient depending on the depth of your specific peel, but will generally take three to seven days. The procedure can be done on a Thursday or Friday and you can return to work the following Monday. Immediately following the procedure you will feel as if you have bad sunburn. You will have minor sloughing and itchiness between the first to the third day. By day two through four, redness will begin to fade and by day three to seven any residual redness can be easily covered up by make-up.
