Erbium Laser Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing uses ablative lasers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars, even pigmentation, tighten skin and remove lesions.
SKYN’s erbium laser skin resurfacing is the treatment of choice for clients who want to achieve dramatic improvement in the appearance of their skin. This treatment 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 a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser.
How does Erbium Laser Resurfacing Work?
Erbium laser 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. Our Talent will precisely remove the necessary layers of skin to eliminate or reduce superficial to moderately deep lines and wrinkles.
Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing Candidates
A candidate for erbium laser skin resurfacing is someone who is seeking to correct fine lines and wrinkles or achieve a younger and more refreshed look.
Benefits of Erbium Laser Treatment
Erbium laser skin resurfacing has been found safe and effective for the effective treatment of fine lines and moderate wrinkles. Clients who have previously had 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 smoothens and tightens the skin.
Is Erbium Laser Skin Treatment Safe?
Even as 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 swelling may also occur.
How much does Erbium Laser Resurfacing cost?
Our Talent will determine a treatment plan based on your desired outcome. Single treatments start from $550 (was $880).
What Happens After Laser Resurfacing?
Following the treatment the skin may be raw, swollen and itchy. Our Talent will recommend a product for the aftercare of your skin. You will need to avoid the sun and may need to avoid strenuous exercise (discuss this with your therapist) and should expect to need to care for the wound for 1-2 weeks, until new layers of skin grow.
You should expect some side-effects after laser skin resurfacing. Most people who have the treatment experience some swelling. Using an ice pack and lifting your head with an extra pillow at night can help reduce swelling. The swelling dissipates over time, but redness and swelling may persist for months, and you won’t notice the changed appearance of your skin until you’re over these side effects.
Even once the skin has healed, you need to be vigilant about protecting it from the sun and not smoking.
Follow up Care
Our Talent will give you instructions for the immediate care you require after your treatment. Follow-up treatments may be required for the best results. The recovery time from laser resurfacing will vary depending on the client; in general it takes 7 days for the skin to peel and recover. A healing cream/ointment is required for 5 days and makeup may be applied at Day 7 to help conceal the pinkness. Sun exposure must be minimised for a month after the procedure.
