“Laser light is designed to pass through the skin until it reaches its target, where it’s absorbed by the targeted cell and converted into heat. The cell is damaged by the heat, then heals itself. “When the cell heals, we can see clinical improvement,” says Harbor-UCLA Medical Center Director of Dermatologic Surgery, Lisa Chipps, M.D. “The beam of light you see is a laser wavelength targeted to treat a specific component and depth of the skin, a scientific principal known as selective photothermolysis,” explains Dr. Chipps.”

NBC Los Angeles: New Laser Turns Back Time
NBC Los Angeles, February, 2011
The Fractional Erbium Laser is brand new — and Beverly Hills Dermatologist Ronald Moy is the first in the Los Angeles area to offer it to patients. “The main advantagae of the the new laser is it can tighten the skin and help resurface especially this crinkly skin under the eye and help with the brown spots from sun damage,” Dr. Moy explained. And the healing is much quicker. Only two days compared to the seven days that follows treatment with the Fractional CO2 laser. Dr. Moy says the Fractional Erbium Laser goes as deep but doesn’t cause as much damage. “It’s really the wavelength of the laser is such that it doesn’t cause as much thermal destruction, or burning,” Moy said. And that means less pain.

“Wrinkling, freckles, skin thinning — everything we associate with aging is really sun damage, which is essentially DNA damage,” explains Moy. After someone goes tanning, you can measure DNA damage by testing the amount of toxins excreted by their urine.” When you’re 20, DNA repair enzymes in your skin are doing their job, but these enzyme levels drop as you get older. Moy suggests supplementing your body’s own supply with serums and creams fortified with DNA repair enzymes from natural plant sources like plankton.
