What is Erbium YAG Laser Resurfacing?
Erbium YAG Laser Resurfacing is a specialized, computer-controlled technology that removes layers of the skin’s surface safely. This technique has the ability to produce outstanding results with minimal risk and minimal down time. It encompasses an advanced technology that emits two patterns of micro laser beams that are highly effective for both tightening and resurfacing the texture of your skin, by stimulating the production of new collagen fibers. The principle behind this technology is that only small spots of skin tissue are coagulated/ablated leaving unaffected skin in between these spots from which the natural wound healing can immediately begin.
This cutting-edge fractionated technology diminishes acne and surgical scars, wrinkles and fine lines, pigmentation, brown spots and sun damage. It can be used on the face, neck, chest and hands. It dramatically improves the overall texture and tone of the skin. The intensity of the treatment depends on the controlled depth of the ablation and the amount of “passes” your technician will perform.
It is an easy and non-invasive treatment that fits into any lifestyle and into your current beauty regimen. It is extremely effective at reversing the signs of aging and provides a change that you just cannot get from lotions and creams.
Fractional Treatment ( full face ) from $450
Customized Partial Treatments available (around the lips, eyes, forehead, single scar) from $50
The benefits of Erbium Laser Resurfacing Treatment over a face lift
While the traditional surgical face lift can improve the appearance of the skin’s surface by physically tightening wrinkles and lines, frequently the results are short-lived as the collagen support structure of the skin has not been treated. Moreover, the visible texture and pigment colour of the skin’s surface is not treated during a surgical face lift. Invasive surgeries also require a lot of time to heal. Laser resurfacing can have more global effects, e.g. treating the entire face, neck and hands. It is often used in conjunction with a face lift to adress skin surface issues and remove stubborn lines and pigmentation.
