Using an Erbium laser, skin rejuvenation in New York City is the treatment of choice for those who would like to achieve dramatic improvement in the appearance and quality of the skin. Skin rejuvenation is good for removing lesions, skin tags, pigmentation, acne scarring, sun spots, wrinkles and reducing the appearances of pores. It is also an excellent skin tightening treatment.
What Is Skin Rejuvenation?
Skin rejuvenation using the Erbium laser, which is also referred to as laser resurfacing, is a cosmetic treatment used to treat a multitude of skin concerns. It can reduce the appearance of moderate lines and wrinkles, as well as acne scars, sun damage, and other blemishes.
The Erbium laser is a mild ablative laser that can be used to exfoliate the top layer of the skin. It delivers a more targeted heat energy to the skin to minimize damage to nearby cells. Through this innovative technology, downtime is significantly reduced.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you want to address wrinkles on your face, neck, chest, or hands, you may be an ideal candidate for Erbium laser skin rejuvenation. You may also be qualified for this treatment if you have shallow acne scars that you want to smooth away.
This form of skin rejuvenation is not recommended for all skin tones; the darker the tone, the greater the chance of hypo or hyperpigmentation.
Erbium laser resurfacing is not effective against stretch marks. If you have active acne, you may have to treat it first before you can undergo laser resurfacing treatments.
Prior to any skin rejuvenation treatment, you will need to undergo a consultation. The targeted areas will be physically examined to determine if your skin type and tone is compatible with the skin rejuvenation treatment.
Your medical history will be discussed, along with your current medications, any pre-existing conditions, and your desired outcome.
The first steps of the skin rejuvenation process are skin cleansing and application of a topical anesthetic. Then the laser will be used to treat the target areas. Afterwards, the treatment sites will be bandaged.
The whole process can take several minutes to a few hours depending on the number of treated areas. The patient will be given instructions to help hasten recovery and healing before they are sent home.
This procedure successfully removes superficial lines to moderately deep wrinkles with less pain, fewer side-effects, and a more rapid recovery than other treatments. We ask patients to avoid any sun exposure for two weeks, stay hydrated and avoid caffeine and alcohol the night before as well as day of the appointment. The downtime is minimal with some redness for about 48 hours and then some peeling and minor itchiness expected for 3-5 days. Three treatments are typically done 4 weeks apart for optimal results.
Cost of a Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment
The cost of skin rejuvenation procedures largely depends on a lot of factors, such as the desired results, number of areas treated, and extent of work done. The fees for the anesthetic used can also affect the overall price.
