What It Is:
Erbium YAG is a light resurfacing treatment for improving wrinkles, texture, brown-spots, and all effects of aging. You’ll experience some painless, but warm zapping in return for healthier, tighter skin. In response to selective injury your skin is kicked into super healing mode, leaving you with a clear, glowing complexion in just three to four days. A series of three treatments will significantly smooth texture and restore even coloration to your face, neck, chest, or hands. It can also be done regularly for maintenance.
What to Expect:
- Painless but warm zapping during the treatment
- Red skin that feels hot for a day or two after treatment
- Darkening/bronzing of the skin one to two days after treatment. On closer inspection, the tiny laser dots will look like coffee grounds.
- Dry, peeling patches and roughness for three to five days.
- Healing time for the face is usually five to seven days, but give neck and décolletage or hands and arms up to two weeks.
- Don’t book other treatments on the same day.
- Go without makeup the day and night of your treatment.
- Apply ice packs, as needed, to cool off your complexion and soothe any redness.
- Always wear sunscreen..
- Avoid sun, tanning beds, or self-tanners for two weeks before treatment.
- Go back to your regular skin care regimen around day five.
- Face, eyes and mouth
- Neck & décolleté
