Erbium Laser Resurfacing
Wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, and sun damage can take their toll on your skin, making you look older than your years. To combat these changes, many people choose laser skin resurfacing.
Erbium laser resurfacing differs from carbon dioxide (CO2) laser resurfacing—it’s gentler and has a faster healing time. The precision of the laser allows the doctor to have complete control and to treat each area as deeply as needed. The energy emitted from the laser is absorbed by the water in the selected tissue. Once the water is absorbed, the tissue is vaporized, causing a controlled injury. The body’s natural healing mechanism kicks in and stimulates collagen production and cell turnover. New skin cells produce skin with improved tone, texture, and appearance.
