While the Erbium laser resurfacing is best in the fall or winter, you can still schedule this treatment in spring or summer. However, you will have to avoid sunless tanners and the sun for two weeks before and after the treatment. Erbium laser resurfacing is a treatment that enhances all that the exfoliators, cleansers, toners, and serums do, but in treatment form rather than daily (and diligent) application. Clients often report that even with consistent skincare, they don’t have the fullness, clarity, and youthful look to their skin that they want. Erbium laser resurfacing is a treatment that ensures fresh and vibrant skin.
At Majestic Aesthetics and Wellness, offering Erbium laser resurfacing to clients allows us to serve clients who want to repair their skin from acne and dark spots and repair fine lines from the neck and chest, or face. This laser treatment removes old skin cells and has 1-2 week downtime with pixelation texture, dryness, flaking, redness with excessive heat. In most cases, one to three treatments will give you the desired outcome, followed with 6-12 month single treatments continuing afterwards due to natural aging.

Erbium laser treatment is effective because the laser ablates 1-2mm of skin. The heat within the treatment vaporizes the water in 1-2mm of the skin diminishing fine lines and other unwanted textures. Older skin is transformed into newer skin. As new cells form in the healing process, the skin becomes smoother, more evenly colored, and softer. Several lasers and light sources are available today for skin resurfacing. It is effective on both fair and dark shades of skin. The Erbium laser treatment is virtually painless during the procedure, but your skin will feel very tight and hot in the following 72 hours. But, it is important to keep in mind that each person has a unique pain tolerance, so the procedure could be more or less painful than that baseline describes. Though side effects occur, they are most often swelling, heat, or redness. If you are a smoker, you’ll want to be sure to disclose that at your consultation as the preparation process is a bit different for those who smoke.
The healing process for Erbium is an average of 1-2 weeks. You’ll likely look sunburned and some swelling can occur. Over that time, your collagen will be rejuvenated, and your skin will start to show a healthier look. After your procedure is healed, it’s essential to wear sunscreen (click that link for our favorite brand) daily to help your results look their best and combat aging. Over time, you may choose to do another treatment as natural aging will still occur.
