Laser Skin Resurfacing

As we age, our production of collagen slows dramatically. Our skin struggles to keep up with sun damage, scars, and discoloration. The Erbium YAG Laser Resurfacing System is a procedure for the face, neck, chest, and hands to eliminate surface pigmentation and minimize mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles. With minimal downtime, the Erbium help patients achieve dramatic results.

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

The Rohrer Spectrum Erbium YAG Laser tightens and renews skin on the face, neck, chest, and hands, deleting discolorations and produces tighter, smoother, and more supple skin. Laser skin resurfacing heats discolored skin cells to the point of scattering, permanently removing them. Additionally, heat from the laser penetrates into lower skin layers where it encourages a localized flood of collagen—one of the body’s most vital structural proteins. This tightens & remodels skin for months (and even years) afterward.

Premature aging, surface imperfections, skin laxity (sagging), unwanted blemishes, and numerous types of scars (including acne scars) are all ideal targets for laser skin resurfacing. By supercharging collagen, the Erbium YAG Laser treatment can lead to targeted skin rejuvenation.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs

Laser skin resurfacing is a quick, effective, and comfortable procedure. Most patients describe the treatment as mild irritation or feeling similar to a rubber band snapping on their skin. Because skin resurfacing lasers are powerful enough to exfoliate with light alone, you may experience some minimal discomfort. Procedures range from 30 to 90 minutes, but a topical solution can be applied to maximize your comfort throughout.

Depending on your goals and expectations, you may need anywhere from 3–6 laser skin resurfacing sessions. For safety, these sessions may be spread 4–6 weeks apart. After the final treatment, touch-up appointments may be necessary to preserve the best results. Otherwise, results typically last for 6 months to 1 year.

Yes, by creating a localized flood of natural collagen, laser skin resurfacing can encourage healing in new and old scars. The treatment is especially effective for acne scars, but collagen does not distinguish between new or old skin damage. It sticks around for months and even years after your final laser skin resurfacing sessions to heal sun damage, photoaging, and scarring.
