Removal of sun damage
Removal of melasma
Improve surface texture
The laser attaches to water drying out the superficial layer of skin where most pigment problems live.
Erbium can be treated anywhere on the body.
The entire area that will be treated needs to be cleansed of all makeup and moisturizers and the Clinical Staff will wipe the area with alcohol before the procedure.
We have all patients use topical numbing before the treatment, so they are as comfortable as possible. Some patients do say it feels hot, but not painful. We will also have patients wear goggles for eye protection. The laser sounds like a small pop when it hits the skin.
Patients will experience 3-7 days of itching/peeling skin
3 days post treatment patients can go back on products such as Retin-A
You can be retreated every 6 weeks.
