What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?  
Laser Skin Resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure uses laser technology to improve the appearance of skin and promotes anti-aging.

Erbium YAG (Er:YAG): 

lasers are highly precise and can be used to target specific areas of the skin with precision. This allow for controlled removal of the outer layers of damaged or aging skin, resulting in more predictable outcomes. Unlike IPL, Er:YAG is safe to treat Fitzpatrick skin type V and VI for various skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, Melasma, sun spots and age spots. 

Multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve optimal results. The benefits of Er;YAG skin resurfacing can be long-lasting with proper skincare maintenance and sun protection.

  • Stimulation of Collagen Production: Stimulates the production of collagen, a protein responsible for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness. This helps to improve skin laxity, reduce fine lines, and enhance overall skin tightness, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

  • Treatment of Acne and Acne Scars: It improves the appearance of acne scars by promoting collagen remodeling and skin regeneration.
