Using Erbium Laser to Get Rid of Wrinkles

Erbium laser skin resurfacing is an advanced treatment approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

It makes dramatic changes in the appearance of skin by correcting wrinkles and fine lines in the face, neck and other places of the body. It is best suitable for people with a fairer skin, who have moderate wrinkles, sun damage and acne scars.

How does Erbium Laser Work?

Energy waves of wavelength 2940 nanometers (nm) are passed onto the affected area. The waves are strongly attracted to the water component in the skin. This results in a controlled removal of the outer layer of skin.

As soon as it hits the skin’s surface, the energy is absorbed by water. Therefore, very less heat energy is remitted to the deep layers of skin due to its high attraction to water.

It removes the wrinkles and fine lines with much less pain and less burning of tissues around it. It removes the outermost layer of skin which is also known as epidermis to bring out a younger and smoother looking skin.

It also helps in the activation of collagen (a natural skin tightener) which results in the formation of a tighter skin.

What are the Side-effects of this Treatment?

After the treatment, the skin would appear red or pink for a week’s time and then comes back to its normal complexion. Due to the less heat remitted to the deep layers of the skin, there is lesser redness, swelling and a better capability to heal quicker.

The risk of hyper and hypo pigmentation is also reduced as it is comparatively a less energetic wave when compared to other laser treatments and it even costs less.

All those treated with erbium laser should apply sunblock cream everyday. And, make-up can be started after a week’s time of the treatment.

This treatment is very effective and affordable when compared to other treatments. And the results stay for a longer period.
