With their latest Erbium Laser Resurfacing treatment, Me Clinic is here to help you discover your best skin yet.
At different stages of life, our skin will have different needs and requirements. It’s almost impossible to look in a mirror and not find at least one or two skin issues that we’d like to address.
Whether it’s redness and acne, fine lines and wrinkles or pores and loss of firmness, the hardest part is knowing where to start. With so many treatment options available, it can be just as difficult to know which one is right for you.
But there may be an answer at hand. With their latest Erbium Laser Resurfacing treatment, Me Clinic is here to help you discover your best skin yet.
What is Erbium Laser Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing is a treatment that uses ablative lasers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, scars, lesions, and pigmentation. It can also help firm the skin.
With Erbium Laser Resurfacing, the treatment gently removes (removes) the outermost layer of skin – the epidermis – to reveal smoother, younger-looking skin. This process activates the production of collagen, which further promotes firming of the skin and promotes a more youthful appearance.
With the Erbium treatment, the emitted laser light is absorbed by the water in the skin, leaving very little thermal damage. The treatment is much less invasive than other laser resurfacing treatments.
What skin problems is it suitable for?
As a resurfacing treatment, this one is ideal for those who want to address surface skin issues. It has been shown to be very effective in treating:
- Acne, acne scars and enlarged pores.
- Wrinkles and fine lines.
- Age spots, sun damage and uneven skin texture.
- Scars, melasma and hyperpigmentation.
- Seborrheic warts, skin tags, skin vessels and skin lesions.
- Loss of firmness and sagging skin.
Erbium laser resurfacing has also been very effective in treating deeper lines and wrinkles, although this requires more intense treatment, resulting in longer recovery time.
Why choose Erbium laser resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing isn’t a totally new treatment for problem skin – it’s been around for a while. The difference with Erbium laser resurfacing is that it is a much gentler option for those who want noticeable results.
Compared to other laser treatments, Erbium laser resurfacing offers dramatic improvements with fewer side effects, including less pain during treatment and faster recovery time (except for treatment of fine lines and wrinkles deeper, as mentioned).
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatment sessions you will need depends on your skin and the issues you wish to address. In general, visible results can be achieved in as little as one to three sessions.
What does treatment recovery look like?
As the treatment involves removing the outer layer of skin, you can expect to feel a little raw, swollen, and possibly itchy immediately afterwards.
Many people also experience side effects, such as swelling and redness. Recovery time from these side effects can vary from a few weeks to a month or more. Once your skin has had time to heal, you will feel the benefits of the treatment.
You will receive post-treatment counseling and follow-up, which usually involves:
- Avoid strenuous exercise.
- Avoid the sun.
- Avoid smoking.
- Specialized care products to promote healing of the skin, including sun protection.
If you have any concerns about recovery and post-treatment follow-up, it is essential to ask questions before starting treatment.
