Erbium laser skin resurfacing in Sarasota, Fl
There are two types of laser skin resurfacing: the CO2 and Erbium lasers. CO2 laser resurfacing is the most popular type in this procedure. It is an ablative method which wounds the epidermis to give way for new skin growth and improve collagen development. The intensity of the laser beams with CO2 is high. Erbium, on the other hand, is a more gentle procedure that only removes superficial skin layers so the recovery period is quicker. Depending on the patient’s skin condition and aesthetic goals, our skilled cosmetic surgeons will recommend the laser that is more suitable for the patient to render better results.
