Laser Skin Resurfacing

dermak1Laser Skin Resurfacing combines the benefits of Erbium and CO2 laser treatments in the same procedure. Now, the deep penetrating power of the CO2 laser and the softer treatment of the Erbium laser work together to provide controlled laser skin resurfacing.

The Erbium and CO2 laser treatment was designed to treat wrinkles around the eyes, lips, forehead, and cheeks. Facial scars, sun-damaged skin, and age spots can also be treated with this advanced treatment tool.

The Advantages of Erbium and CO2 Laser Treatments in the Same Procedure

dermak2Erbium and CO2 laser treatment gives us precise control over the exfoliation process, facilitating and enhancing the natural process by which your skin renews itself and repairs its damage.  By ablating the outer layer of sun, age-damaged or acne-scarred skin, the smoother, fresher skin underneath is revealed.

Laser skin resurfacing can remove the outer layers of sun-damaged skin carefully where necessary or utilize the penetrating power of the CO2 laser to remove more layers of skin and provide heating to subsurface tissues that can contribute additional skin tightening to your treatment.

Candidates for Erbium and CO2 Laser Resurfacing Treatments

The ideal candidate for laser skin resurfacing with the Erbium and CO2 laser treatments is seeking treatment for both fine and deep wrinkles, and dull, sun-damaged skin, including skin with brown sun and age spots, but not red facial discolorations.  Scars can also see improvement through Erbium and CO2 laser resurfacing treatment.

After your treatment, you may experience swelling, and prolonged redness depending on the level of skin resurfacing treatment you received. You should avoid sun exposure during the healing process.
