There are so many different lasers for skin resurfacing that you might wonder which one would be good for you? At Celibre Medical Corporation, the technology that we’ve found to offer superior safety and results with our patients is the erbium YAG laser.
Erbium is an older technology, but it works, and we know that it can provide consistent benefits with little risk for our patients. It’s a great procedure to consider if you have fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, or if you just want to improve the laxity and firmness of your skin.
Erbium laser resurfacing does this in two ways. First, it removes the outer skin layer (the epidermis) while it simultaneously deposits heat deeper in the skin (the dermis) to stimulate collagen production. When combined with the new epidermis that is generated after treatment, erbium laser resurfacing can produce brighter, tighter, healthier and younger looking skin!
You will most likely need more than one treatment spaced at least four weeks apart to achieve optimal results. If you work or have other commitments, you will also need some “social downtime” or recovery period. This “downtime” lasts around 5 to 10 days following each treatment. There is very little discomfort during your healing period, and most patients return to their normal schedules about five to seven days after treatment!
