Erbium laser skin resurfacing precisely removes the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin) so that a new, fresh layer of skin can take its place. The procedure also tightens skin by activating collagen production.
Laser skin resurfacing treatment, often referred to as a laser peel, is performed as an outpatient procedure with the use of a local anesthetic and possibly a mild sedative. You’ll be awake, but will feel drowsy and your skin will be numb so there is no pain during the procedure.
Erbium laser skin resurfacing is the preferred procedures for those who would like to achieve dramatic improvement in skin appearance. This procedure successfully removes superficial lines to moderately deep wrinkles with less pain, fewer side-effects, and a more rapid recovery than other treatments.
