The large proportion of the world population suffers from several irregularities on the face, but a few of them actually go ahead and treat their skin issues. Now, there is a question in your mind that why others don’t bother their skin issues and going for skin treatments. The simple answer is that high costs, the time needed for recovery, pain and potential complications. Technology advancement has led to the development of laser treatments that can treat several typical disorders of the skin including acne scars, injury scars, burn marks, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles.
Erbium laser resurfacing is one of the popular techniques for removing undesirable facial characteristics. Erbium laser skin resurfacing is an excellent treatment for those who want to enhance their look significantly. It helps to remove thin lines with less pressure with rare side effects and the fastest recovery.
How does this therapy work?
Erbium laser therapy specifically flattens the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin to expose a cleaner and youthful appearance of the underlying skin. The treatment also stimulates collagen to facilitate further skin tightening. It is usually performed with the use of a local anesthetic (a mild sedative). The laser generates small, ‘ microthermal ‘ areas deep into your skin and fixes your skin by pushing the old damaged skin by the laser and substituting it with a new skin.
