WHAT IT IS
An Erbium Yag (Er;YAG) laser treatment that lightens surface pigmentation, reduces the appearance of scars (especially post-acne ones), fine lines and wrinkles.
WHAT IT DOES
COLOUR — Sloughs off superficial pigmentation effectively, especially uneven pigment (age spots, freckles, melasma, seborrheic keratosis and other benign skin growth).
CONSISTENCY — Removes scarring at the skin’s surface due to acne while reducing collateral damage to surrounding skin tissue.
Since the treatment is very precise, a wide variety of cutaneous treatments that requires skin resurfacing can benefit from this treatment.
CONTOUR — Beneficial to reducing the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles due to its superficial skin ablation properties.
HOW IT WORKS
ER;Yag lasers typically emit light with a wavelength of 2940 nm, that is a high energy infrared light, which when focused on a certain skin condition will create heat and destroy diseased cells and correct imperfections.
