Erbium MicroLaserPeel laser resurfacing is an excellent treatment for many conditions to improve the texture, tone, and color of the skin. The Erbium laser is a tried and true laser technology, and we are pleased with the consistent, predictable outcomes the treatments offer.
With the Erbium MicroLaserPeel treatment, the recovery period is often referred to as “social downtime” which refers to the time away from usual activities such as work and outdoor activities. Social downtime implies that, although one is healing, they may not be comfortable with their appearance and may wish to forego public activities for a certain period after the laser resurfacing treatments. In our experience, most patients that undergo Erbium laser resurfacing treatments will return to work or school within 5-7 days. More patients are closer to the fifth day than the seventh.
The healing process after Erbium laser resurfacing is generally uneventful with redness and peeling resolving dramatically with each passing day. The skin care regimen in the first 3 days takes some diligence and adherence to it will directly improve and hasten the healing process.
