If you’re concerned about finer lines and wrinkles, the erbium laser may be the best choice for you! This laser effectively treats superficial skin concerns, removing the outside layer of the skin while not being as intensive of a procedure as the CO2 laser.A great benefit of this, is that there is minimal chance of burning in surrounding tissues! Because this laser addresses more superficial concerns, naturally it is more gentle, and requires a shorter recovery time compared to the CO2 laser. Erbium is among the most popular laser skin resurfacing treatments.
Similar to the Erbium laser, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing strips away the old damaged top layers of the skin! However, the CO2 laser is best used for those who have more severe discoloration and deeper wrinkles they would like to address. Done in a fractionated method, columns of skin are left intact surrounding the treated areas, helping the healing process. The CO2 laser is a more intensive laser resurfacing method, and generates more heat when compared to erbium laser. You will benefit from an increased tightening of the skin with CO2. There is a downtime of 7-14 days, however, with this treatment!
How is Laser Skin Resurfacing performed?
A numbing cream is first applied to ensure your comfort during the procedure. After your skin is cleansed of oil, dirt, and bacteria, your treatment provider will then continue to send controlled pulses of laser to remove the top damaged layers of your skin! The heat produced within the skin from the laser energy stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, the proteins responsible for maintaining the elasticity and structure of your skin!
