Erbium Laser Treatments in South Portland, Maine


Erbium lasers have become popular in the field of skin care treatments due to their ability to precisely remove layers of skin with minimal damage and downtime. Erbium lasers are commonly used for skin resurfacing procedures to address various skin concerns and improve the overall appearance and texture of the skin.

Erbium lasers are highly effective in treating skin conditions such as wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. The laser energy is absorbed by the water content in the skin, causing controlled removal of the outer layers. This process stimulates collagen production and promotes the growth of new, healthier skin cells.

Benefits of Erbium Laser Treatments

Here are some ways we use Erbium lasers for skin care treatments:

Laser Skin Rejuvenation: Erbium lasers can help rejuvenate the skin by promoting collagen remodeling and improving skin elasticity. The controlled heat generated by the laser stimulates the production of new collagen fibers, leading to firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.

Fractional Laser Treatment: Erbium lasers can also be used in fractional laser resurfacing, where the laser energy is delivered in a fractionated pattern, creating tiny microthermal zones on the skin. This approach allows for faster healing and reduced downtime compared to traditional full-surface treatments.

Scar Treatment: Erbium lasers can be utilized to minimize the appearance of scars, including acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. The laser energy targets the scar tissue, promoting collagen remodeling and reducing the visibility of the scar.

Pigmentation Disorders: Erbium lasers can address various pigmentation concerns, such as age spots, sunspots, and melasma. The laser energy breaks down the excess pigment in the skin, leading to a more even skin tone.

The depth and intensity of the treatment can be adjusted based on specific skin concerns and desired outcomes. Proper post-treatment care, including sun protection and skincare regimen, is crucial to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential side effects.

What to Expect from the Erbium Laser

“The Erbium Laser is excellent for severe to moderate damage and for anyone looking to tighten and improve the skin!”

Day 1: This treatment leaves your skin a bit pink on the day of your treatment. You will leave with a thin layer of vaseline to ensure proper moisture and protection. Vaseline is used post treatment for about 48 hours.

Day 2: The second day your skin will be slightly pink with a little darkening as the dead skin layers start to move to the top of your skin.

Day 3: On the third day you will likely start to have some peeling which will expose the new skin emerging underneath. Even though the skin looks amazon right away the full benefits are yet to come. Since this “wound healing response” triggers a healing and regenerative response there will be continued results

After: over the months to follow. While healing you will be instructed to keep your skin protected with vaseline or moisturizer and SPF.
