Skin Laser Treatment: Skin Resurfacing With Erbium Laser Peel


A skin resurfacing peel can be seen as an extreme exfoliation. This is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation, meaning that it is a non-invasive treatment. Due to it being a non-invasive procedure, it has grown in popularity over the last 20 years. With the increase in popularity, there has also been an increase in the use of ablative & non-ablative resurfacing devices.


Erbium laser heats a narrow area of adjacent tissue, which results in the removal of the old skin cell layer. With the removal of the old cell layer, new cell growth is stimulated. This helps reverse sun damage, remove superficial and moderately deep lines and treat hyperpigmentation. Your skin will appear smoother and more even.


One of the most common concerns that people express about their face as they age is the presence of peri-oral rhytids or smokers-line around the mouth. These stubborn, deep lines are difficult to treat. Erbium laser resurfacing is however one of the best ways to treat this concern.


Erbium Laser is a very precise treatment and can be used to remove 1-5% of the epidermis. It can also be used for more aggressive resurfacing treatments for deep wrinkles that can remove up to 60% of the epidermis. So erbium laser can treat superficial & extremely deep skin concerns.




Erbium skin laser treatment is a useful tool for facial rejuvenation that deliver magnificent results with minimal complications. This type of laser resurfacing can be used on its own or in combination with other facial treatments to get optimal results that last long term. Laser resurfacing is extremely effective due to its ability to target deep dermal bodies like fibroblasts that produce collagen. Face-Lift procedures will not produce effective results for collagen production or deep wrinkle removal.


Research has shown that erbium laser resurfacing treatments into the deeper dermis generate new skin within seven days. Other forms of skin resurfacing cannot achieve this. Erbium laser is also overall more beneficial because it does not damage surrounding connective tissue.


With Erbium skin laser treatment, results can be seen after 2-3 weeks. The optimum results are visible 30 days after clients had their treatments done. Chemical peels can also produce positive results but skin laser treatments are more effective with longer-lasting results


How Does The Skin Look After An Erbium Laser Resurfacing Treatment?


There are a few common things that might happen after laser resurfacing treatment. Your skin may become flaky, crusty and red. The best way to handle this is to apply the prescribed cream to help with the skin’s recovery. Avoid make-up for a few days as it might cause sensitivity or irritation. The skin might be a little uncomfortable at first, but once the inflammation fades, you will enjoy rejuvenated skin that will have you feeling years younger.


How To Prepare For An Erbium Peel Treatment


Preparing the skin before any treatment plays a role in the overall outcome of the treatment. Here are a few tips to follow before having your skin laser treatment done.


  • Avoid having any deep facial resurfacing up to four weeks before your treatment. This includes dermabrasion, chemical peels and laser resurfacing.
  • Avoid topical chemicals that cause photosensitivity like cortisone for a minimum of 72 hours
  • If you have had Herpes or Shingles in the treatment area, let the person performing the treatment know. You will need to start antiviral medication before your treatment.
  • Also, avoid topical Retinoids for 4 weeks leading up to your treatment




How To Look After Your Skin Post Treatment


To see the best results after having your erbium laser treatment done, it is essential to make sure that your skin is well looked after post-treatment. Effectively looking after your skin will minimize any side effects as well as complications.


After the skin laser treatment, your skin will feel extremely sensitive like it had sunburn. Swelling, redness, itching and stinging could be expected for a few days. Avoid scratching or picking at your skin as this might cause scarring and infection.


A cold compress or wrapped ice pack can also help soothe the skin during the first few days and can be applied as needed. Unnecessary exposure to the sun can cause serious damage to healing skin and should be avoided as far as possible. Also, avoid harsh skin care products and excessive mechanical friction.


Five to seven days after your treatment you will experience very dry and peeling skin. At first, your new skin will look pink, but it will slowly lighten in colour over two to three months.

So, about the benefits of skin laser treatment…


Reduction of Fine lines & Wrinkles


Fine lines and wrinkles are bound to appear as we age. Laser works wonders to smooth out lines around the eyes and mouth, lines in the neck and on the chest area. After each treatment, you will look younger, and your skin will look healthier – giving you a boost in confidence with your newly rejuvenated skin.


Treat Brown spots & Discolouration


Discolouration and spots are often caused by sun exposure, pigmentation problems or ageing. With laser you can have unwanted freckles, sun spots and discolouration corrected, and you will be able to enjoy an even and balanced skin tone.


Tighten Skin and Encourages Collagen Production


It is natural for our skin to lose elasticity with age. The skin no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Skin Laser will enhance your skin tone and promote the production of collagen. After the treatment, your skin will look and feel firmer and more youthful.


Improve Scars


Acne, traumatic and surgical scars can affect anybody’s appearance and self-confidence. These scars can cause your skin to look uneven and permanently marked. Acne is a frustrating condition to deal with which is why the last thing anybody wants for their skin is to be scared after finally getting rid of the breakouts. Skin laser treatment can improve the scars’ colour, texture and flexibility and even reduce acne.


Reduces the appearance of Prominent Blood Vessels and Redness


A prominent blood vessel is also known as broken capillaries, spider veins and varicose veins on the legs. These unwanted red blemishes are caused by sun damage, skin irritations, injury or hormones. These blemishes can be removed within one or two sessions.


Redness in the face can also be caused by conditions like Rosacea and can also be treated very effectively with skin laser treatment.


Reduces the size of Enlarged Pores


Enlarged pores are typically caused by genetics and age. Large pores can make your skin look uneven and bumpy and can even cause some people to feel self-conscious, especially when close to other people. Skin laser treatment, specifically skin resurfacing, can make large pores appear a lot smaller. The skin will look smoother and a huge benefit of this treatment is that the results are long-lasting.
