Facial Resurfacing St. Petersburg
Scar and Wrinkle Reducing Treatments
Erbium is the treatment of choice for patients wanting to achieve dramatic improvement in the appearance of their skin with minimal downtime. The procedure removes surface-pigmentation and mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck and chest. Unlike the CO2 laser, the erbium YAG provides superficial treatments by targeting the chromophore water. Erbium laser peels can be repeated every 3 to 4 weeks to maintain a refreshed youthful shine to the skin. The erbium laser can also be used to treat skin tags, seborrheic keratoses, warts and scars. Typically, aftercare includes applying moisturizer to the skin and avoiding prolonged sun exposure. It has sometimes been called the lunchtime laser peel as it can be accomplished during a lunch break leaving the skin to appear pink similar to a deep facial.
