THE ERBIUM RESURFACING LASER
The length of the Erbium laser procedure varies from 15 minutes to slightly over an hour, depending on the individual’s needs. A local anesthetic may be used for patient comfort. Healing is more rapid than with other methods of laser resurfacing because less of the surrounding tissue is affected. After several weeks, the pinkness of the exposed skin will lighten to reveal the normal tone, yet with a softer, smoother, and younger appearance.
