Erbium Yag Laser
This laser is perfect for more superficial needs. It is ideal for improving your skin’s appearance, removing superficial scars and lines, improving the texture and tone of your skin. There is minimal surrounding tissue damage because this laser is very precise. You can also treat your hands, neck, face, and chest. If you have a darker skin tone, this laser will work for you as well. The procedure is minimally invasive and your recovery time will be about a week. A topical anesthesia may be used during your treatment.
This laser treatment is a deep penetrating treatment and is for more severe needs – deeper acne scars, warts, enlarged oil glands, and very damaged skin. While the C02 laser is more effective at treating deeper issues and returns more dramatic results, it also requires more downtime – up to three weeks -- to recover. Your skin will appear slightly pink, like a mild sunburn, for up to six months. It usually requires the use of general anesthesia during the treatment.
