Erbium laser resurfacing removes surface-level skin irregularities such as blemishes or acne scars and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the hands, face, neck, or chest. One of the benefits of erbium laser resurfacing is the minimal burning of surrounding tissue.
The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer. This popular procedure is called lasabrasion, laser peel, or vaporization.
You are a good candidate for acne scar laser treatment for skin resurfacing if you have wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or forehead and non-responsive skin after a facelift.
This technique is not recommended for stretch marks. It would be best to discuss whether laser resurfacing is right for you before the procedure.
