Erbium Laser Resurfacing And The Effects On Your Skin

Erbium Laser Resurfacing And The Effects On Your Skin

Request Consultation

There are many non-surgical treatments available that can have quite a positive influence on your skin. One of these treatments is Erbium laser resurfacing, which is commonly used for its anti-ageing effects. Interested in obtaining the treatment in the nearby future? Be sure to read through our information below to get more familiar with Erbium laser resurfacing.

When Is Erbium Laser Resurfacing Used?

Erbium laser resurfacing is a treatment that is implemented for a variety of things. Firstly, the treatment is suitable for certain skin abnormalities; this includes pigmentation, freckles, acne scarring, and sun damage. Secondly, the treatment is effective for common signs of ageing; this includes the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.

Considering the large variety of problems that can be treated with Erbium laser, it is no surprise that the treatment is often combined with certain surgical procedures. Of course, Erbium laser resurfacing is also used as a standalone treatment, considering the many benefits associated with this procedure.

How Does An Erbium Laser Influence The Skin?

The inner workings of an Erbium laser are quite unique. The laser interacts with water inside the skin and this factor on its own provides a lot of benefits for this kind of treatment. For example, the interaction with the water inside the skin minimises the risk of burns, which can be a factor in treatments that involve a laser. 

With an Erbium laser, a cosmetic surgeon can target specific layers of the skin. By evaporating layers of the skin, the body is forced to produce more collagen. Since collagen is largely responsible for the overall appearance of our skin and its overall tightness, Erbium laser proves extremely effective for skin rejuvenation.

Do I Need To Recover From A Treatment With Erbium Laser?

Most patients will experience some degree of discomfort after Erbium laser resurfacing; this since the laser causes damage the skin by evaporating skin layers. Doing so ensures the body creates more collagen, but it does mean that there is some healing involved with the treatment.

Shortly after your laser treatment, a member of the medical team will apply some thin dressings on the treatment area. Dressings must be worn on the treatment area for several days after the laser resurfacing treatment; this will protect the treatment area against infection through environmental factors.

Because of the nature of the procedure, the skin can be a little sensitive for several weeks after the procedure. It is recommended to avoid the use of makeup products for at least the first week after the treatment, or longer if recommended by your cosmetic surgeon. Once you are allowed to use makeup, the doctors do tend to recommend makeup products that are gentler on the skin; this to prolong the benefits of any anti-ageing treatments.

Patients can also experience some redness on the skin for several weeks after treatment. A week after the treatment, you are able to cover some of the redness with lightweight make-up. Mineral makeup tends to be the best option, as this kind of makeup tends to be much better for your skin overall.

Please note that all patients will receive some post-treatment guidelines from The Dr Lanzer Clinic. To promote the healing process and maximise the results obtained from the treatment, we advise following the guidelines from The Dr Lanzer Clinic carefully. If you have difficulties with your post-operative care or have some questions about your recovery, we also recommend contacting The Dr Lanzer Clinic for advice.
