The erbium laser removes the top layers of the skin with accuracy and precision, revealing a smoother, healthier, and more vibrant complexion. The erbium laser peel, also called the “Smooth Peel” is a much more safe, controlled, and precise way to refine the skin and create healthy skin rejuvenation, without the need for harsh chemicals.
The Erbium laser Smooth Peel is used to treat:
- fine lines and wrinkles
- sun and age spots
- irregular texture (rough spots)
- laxity in the skin (mild looseness)
Treatments provide smoother, more uniform skin tone and texture. Makeup will go on easier and you will look and feel younger.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the treatment like?
The erbium laser peel begins with the application of a topical anesthetic for about 30 minutes. The treatment itself takes about 20 minutes and is performed along with the application of a cool stream of air for your comfort. You will have the feeling of mild sunburn after the treatment and this will last about ninety minutes. Within a period of two to three days, the skin will peel, revealing smoother, healthier, more vibrant looking skin. The use of a high SPF, broad spectrum sunblock and intensive moisturizers are utilized after the procedure.
What should I do before my treatment?
Tanning should be avoided before and after the treatment. For individuals with a history of cold sores, antiviral prophylaxis should be utilized.
What is the downtime with erbium laser?
Two to three days of downtime are required for your skin to heal after the procedure. For individuals without the ability for downtime, the treatment can be performed more gently and repeated once monthly for three months.
