What is Fractional Laser Resurfacing?*
The Ebrium laser is a time-tested and exciting way of reversing the appearance of aged or sun-damaged skin, smoothing wrinkles, and reducing the appearance of acne or other scars. Because it delivers the desired outcome with minimal downtime, it is rapidly replacing traditional laser skin resurfacing as the treatment of choice for mild to moderate signs of photo damage.
If you have spent years in the sun, especially without adequate sun protection, then you know what it can do to your skin. Wrinkles, skin discoloration, sun spots, skin laxity may be reduced with an Ebrium laser. Also, if you have scars from acne or other skin injuries, then you may also be a candidate for this procedure. Now, using this innovative, new laser technology in Dr. Janowski’s Broomfield, CO office may restore your skin’s youthful appearance. While the aging process cannot be stopped, with proper care you can maintain your rejuvenated skin’s appearance for many years!
Benefits of laser resurfacing for your skin:
- Reverse the appearance of aged and sun damaged skin
- Improve texture and laxity
- Smooth wrinkles
- Reduce the appearance of acne and other scars
What is Erbium Laser Resurfacing?
An Erbium Laser, like CO2 lasers, is an ablative resurfacing laser that works well on fine lines, skin texture, pigmentation, and, to a lesser degree, skin tightening. Though the wavelength of the Erbium laser is different from that of CO2, both laser types work similarly and have similar benefits. One of the advantages of the Erbium laser over CO2 is that it has much more flexibility in the way it can be set. This means it can be customized to treat at different depths of the skin and with varying heat settings. In general, what this means is that the amount of heat the skin absorbs can be controlled much better. As a result, people will heal faster and with less discomfort than with a CO2 laser. Erbium is also the wavelength used for the HALO laser and for the Microlaser Peel. These procedures enable us to offer you a wider variety of treatments within the same machine, so we can customize the settings to best fit your needs and goals. Since acquiring the Sciton Erbium laser, we no longer use our CO2 laser, and we’ve been very pleased with our outcomes. Our patients have been very satisfied as well.
We love the use of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) applied post-laser. PRP is your body’s own most healing agent, and can help speed up the healing process.
