A skin rejuvenation procedure takes less than ten minutes, requires no consumables, and is completely painless. Q-switched laser light is applied in a continuous motion across the patient’s treatment area, avoiding sensitive locations. Treatments are typically performed on the face, neck, and/or hands. Side effects from the skin rejuvenation procedure are typically mild. Patients may have a slightly pinkish skin tone, as if they had just exfoliated.
Thanks to the greatly limited thermal effects of the Erbium laser, the procedure is less painful than with CO2 lasers. Patients do not require any anesthesia in the treatment of small lesions. Side effects and risks are greatly reduced with this laser. The safety of this treatment makes the Erbium laser the superior choice for delicate areas such as the periorbital region or even the neck, chest and hands.
