Erbium Laser Resurfacing FAQS
Is Erbium Laser Resurfacing safe?
Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing has been found safe and effective by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the effective treatment of fine lines and moderate wrinkles.
Is Erbium Laser Resurfacing right for me?
If you have fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes or mouth or on your forehead, shallow scars from acne, then you could be a good candidate. Please schedule a free Skincare Consultation to find out if Erbium Laser Resurfacing is right for you.
What happens during the procedure?
During your Erbium treatment, a trained Chronos Medical Aesthetician will use laser technology to remove a thin layer of skin to stimulate collagen production, leaving skin smoother and tighter-looking, with less visible fine lines and wrinkles.
What areas does this service treat?
Erbium Laser Resurfacing treatments remove surface-level and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, chest and hands.
How long is the recovery time?
One of the benefits of Erbium Laser Resurfacing is minimal burning of surrounding tissue and fewer side effects, resulting in a shorter recovery time than CO2 Laser Resurfacing. Most patients fully recover and are back to their everyday routines in one week.
How many treatments will I need?
Most of our clients will need to have more than one initial Erbium Laser treatment to achieve their desired result. We will help you to determine the best course of action for your skin when you schedule a free Skincare Consultation.
Is the Erbium Laser Treatment safe for dark skin tones?
For lighter-toned African American, Hispanic, or Asian skin tones, Erbium lasers can be a good option, posing less risk for discoloration. Please schedule a free Skincare Consultation with our medical aesthetician to find out if you’re a candidate.
How quickly will I see results and how long do they last?
Our clients see noticeable improvements in skin texture, tone, and wrinkle appearance in about one week. Laser treatments also stimulate the growth of new collagen over the next four to six months after treatment, gradually improving your skin’s appearance even more over time.
