Skin rejuvenation with Erbium: Glass-Laser treatments improves tone, texture and radiance for ageing, sun damaged or scarred skin. The Erbium: Glass-Laser treatment is for people who want to look younger without dramatic changes or extended downtime.
Erbium: Glass-Laser skin rejuvenation effectively treats:
Erbium: Glass-Laser treatment for skin rejuvenation is the pioneer of “fractional photothermolysis,” a technology in which thousands of microscopic laser columns – each just one-tenth the diameter of a hair follicle – treat a fraction of the skin at a time without affecting the surrounding tissue. These microscopic laser columns penetrate deep into the dermis to create tiny wounds, which trigger your body’s natural response system to heal those wounds. This process expedites your body’s remodelling of collagen and elastin, which results in tighter, fresher, more youthful-looking skin.
First, your skin will be cleansed and analysed. Then a topical anaesthetic ointment will be applied to the treatment area for about 60 minutes for numbing to take effect. The Erbium: Glass-Laser re:store procedure takes approximately 20-25 minutes for a full face.
Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimize discomfort, topical anaesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.
Wear a broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 months after your last treatment, and wear a wide-brimmed hat when you’re in the sun.
Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart.
