Erb:Yag Laser

What is Erb:YAG Laser?

Laser skin resurfacing, also known as a laser peel, laser vaporization, or lasabrasion, is a cosmetic rejuvenation technique that uses concentrated light energy or a laser to remove the top layer of skin (epidermis). This then triggers the skin’s natural healing and renewal process, revealing fresh, smooth skin underneath.
Erbium lasers, which are available in both ablative and non-ablative versions, enhance collagen formation, making them beneficial in the treatment of fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, and age spots.

How does Erb:YAG Laser work?

Laser energy is emitted to the epidermal layers of the skin in an “island-like” range across the treatment area. The Fotona laser’s precise settings enable the targeting of only predetermined locations, leaving the surrounding tissue cells untouched. The ablated treatment regions promote the body’s wound healing response, activating the generation of new collagen, and are useful in treating a variety of skin disorders. The Fotona Erbium Resurfacing Laser uses Er: YAG and Nd: YAG laser settings to provide flexible treatment choices for all patient skin types and issues, including acne scars.

The (Erbium) Er: YAG operates at a wavelength of 2940nm, which is excellent for water absorption. The fractional laser removes dead skin cells and promotes the creation of new cells, resulting in a smooth, toned, and youthful-looking complexion.

During treatment, the treated area is subjected to short, intense pulsing light beams. In the next steps, the laser will act on the irregular or damaged skin surface, removing each layer one at a time. As a result, it’s also called a laser peel, laser vaporization, or lasabrasion. You should see an improvement in your skin about 8 to 10 weeks after the therapy. The outcomes will improve progressively.
