Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing
Uncover Youthful-Looking Skin
People all over the world are constantly looking for therapies and treatments to reverse the signs of aging. Dr. Barad specializes in many types of laser treatments, and uses Erbium laser to achieve youthful skin, for patients throughout Pittsburgh. The treatment improves lines & wrinkles, sun damage spots and acne scars.
The Erbium laser is a popular choice for many patients at Aesthetic Skin and Laser Center. She can restore the natural glow for patients struggling with deep lines and wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, hands, neck, and chest area.
How Does Erbium Laser Resurfacing Work?
FDA-approved, Erbium laser skin resurfacing uses a newer technology than the traditional CO2 fractional laser. The treatment removes superficial lines and deep wrinkles with less chance of complications, fewer side effects, and a faster recovery time.
This technology gently and precisely ablates or vaporizes damaged skin cells to reveal smoother, brighter-looking skin. Erbium resurfacing also activates the body’s healing process and stimulates collagen production. This helps to promote smoother, firmer skin. It is also effective in treating uneven skin tone and texture, acne scars, and dark spots.
During treatment, we may apply a topical numbing cream to make sure you’re comfortable. One session can last anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the treated area.
It may take up to three weeks for complete healing. More than one treatment session may be required to achieve desirable results. You can maintain long-lasting results if you follow aftercare instructions and maintain a healthy skin care regimen.
Ideal Candidates For The Procedure
Ideally, you are:
- In good health
- A non-smoker
- Not on any medication that may affect treatment and healing
What To Expect From Recovery
It is common to experience slight swelling and discomfort for the first few days post-treatment. As your skin heals, it may peel - like sunburn. Do not peel or scratch this area as it increases the risk of infection and scarring.
Allow your skin to heal naturally. Keep your skin moisturized throughout the healing process which may take two to three weeks.
Your physician may also recommend a skin care routine, and skincare products. Also, remember to protect your skin against sun damage by limiting sun exposure and wearing quality sunscreen.
