Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, offers cutting-edge erbium laser skin rejuvenation treatments to the patients of Atlanta, Sandy Springs, and the surrounding regions in Georgia. Erbium laser resurfacing is the most successful and effective means of reversing the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles, with minimal downtime. Erbium laser is especially suitable for patients with darker skin.
What is Erbium Laser?
Carbon dioxide and erbium are the most common types of laser technologies used for laser skin resurfacing. Erbium laser resurfacing removes moderate lines and wrinkles from the skin’s surface on the face, neck, chest, and hands. As an ablative procedure, erbium lasers remove the uppermost layers of the skin, activating your body’s natural healing response.
Your body reacts by increasing skin cell turnover, replacing the damaged skin cells with new skin cells. Furthermore, the thermal energy also increases collagen production, which, in turn, increases your body’s collagen reserves. The results are smooth, supple, and tight skin with minimal wrinkles and fine lines. Erbium laser doesn’t cause major side effects, and the recovery is much faster than C02 lasers.
What Happens During Erbium Laser Resurfacing?
Your erbium laser resurfacing treatment starts with a private consultation with our cosmetic providers. They examine the treatment areas, review your medical history, and discuss your cosmetic goals to curate the ideal treatment plan. The treatment areas are cleansed, and the providers apply a numbing gel to ensure optimal comfort. The erbium laser is slowly moved around the treatment areas, allowing the laser energy to penetrate the skin’s surface. After all the treatment areas are covered, your skin is wrapped and dressed, following which you can return home.
