Erbium Fractional Laser Resurfacing

before after edited

As we age, our skin begins to lose its elasticity, and collagen production slows down. This can lead to the formation of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. Erbium fractional laser resurfacing is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment that can help to reverse these signs of aging. With this service, a laser creates microscopic wounds in the skin. This process stimulates the production of new collagen and skin cells, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

What Is Ablative Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Ablative erbium laser skin resurfacing is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to remove the top layer of skin. This helps to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, and other skin imperfections. Erbium laser skin resurfacing can be performed on the face, neck, chest, hands, and body.

Ablative Erbium laser skin resurfacing can provide results that last for several months. The procedure is relatively quick, taking about 30 minutes to an hour to perform, including a topical numbing cream. There is usually some redness, swelling, and peeling after the procedure, but this typically goes away within a week.

What Skin Concerns Can an Erbium Laser Treat?

An erbium laser is a type of laser that can treat a variety of skin concerns. These include:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne scars
  • Brown spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin texture

Am I a Good Candidate for Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing?

If you are considering Erbium laser skin resurfacing, you may wonder if you are a good candidate for this service. Erbium can improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other types of skin damage.

Several factors will play a role when determining if you are a good candidate for Erbium. Your age, skin type, and the severity of your skin condition will be all factors in the decision. Lifestyle, sun exposure, comfort with downtime, and the results you are hoping to achieve will also play a role in selecting a treatment. It is important to consult with your provider to determine candidacy for treatment.

What Is the Average Recovery for Erbium Laser Treatments?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average recovery time for Erbium laser treatments is approximately two weeks.

Most people who have this treatment experience mild to moderate side effects, such as: 

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Bruising
  • Peeling
  • Scabbing

Within a few days, these side effects usually start to improve. However, it is crucial to avoid sun exposure during the recovery period to minimize the risk of complications.
