How Does it Work?
An Erbium laser is used to slough away the outer layers of the skin to improve skin tone and texture. It is a step up from Microdermabrasion and a step below full Skin Resurfacing. A precise skin depth is selected to achieve a light, medium or deep peel.
A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin 30 mins prior to treatment to effectively numb the area. With the aid of a computer scanner on the Erbium Laser the appropriate depth of peel is selected. After the treatment a topical occlusive such as Aquaphor or Neova’s Intensive Tissue Repair is put on the skin to keep skin from drying out.
Your skin will feel similar to a sunburn, with minor sloughing on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day, and mineral makeup can be worn. For a light peel, 3-4 days is the typical recovery time, while a deeper peel can last 4-5 days.
Will depend on the depth of the peel as more treatments maybe needed when lighter treatment are performed. Typically 2-4 treatments are recommended which can be spaced 6-8 weeks apart
