Erbium Peel Laser Treatment
Erbium Laser Peel is another groundbreaking treatment used for laser skin resurfacing. It is a mild and minimal invasive procedure that treats fine lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck and chest. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia or by using sedatives and thus has no down-time. It also has a faster healing process which make the patients get back to their routine earlier.
Who can Consider taking this Treatment?
Any person who has fine lines or wrinkles, acne and scars can consider taking an erbium laser peel treatment. People who want a younger-looking, smooth skin can also opt for the treatment. However, people who have active acne or dark skin must avoid this treatment.
How Does the Procedure Work?
The procedure aims to remove the layers of skin to make way for the newer skin to appear on the surface. The area to be treated is numbed using sedatives or local anesthesia. Then the skin is ablated by exposing it to a continuous fine beam of laser light. This removes the epidermis of the skin and initiates collagen production. The layers of skin that come up after the treatment look younger and smooth, free from fine lines and wrinkles. The collagen production helps in the tightening of the skin.
A bandage may be applied on the treated areas to help the healing process. This bandage needs to be changed every few days, until the healing period, which is usually 7-10days. This minimized healing period serves as a major advantage of the treatment. Moreover, the treatment does not cause any burning, redness or swelling, which makes it painless. However, the treated skin will remain pink or red for 2-3months after the treatment, but that can be managed with make-up and following all the aftercare instructions given by the doctor.
Before and After Care
There are a number of things to be considered before you can start with the treatment. The doctor will ask you your medical history and conduct a physical examination to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the treatment. The patient expectations from the treatment also matter a lot. It is good to be clear about the patient’s expectations from the treatment so that the patient gets what he wants. The doctor shall suggest you to stop any medications that contain isotretinoin a few weeks before your appointment for laser peel. If you smoke, you shall have to stop that atleast two weeks before your appointment and throughout your healing process. Smoking can severely interfere with the healing.
It is equally important for the patients to follow the aftercare instructed by the doctor. The doctor will give you an ointment to apply so that you remain free from scarring or other infections. You must also keep yourself prevented from exposure to UVA and UVB lights, as the skin is light sensitive a few days after laser treatment. Avoid moving out in the sun in the noontime and use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
