A 49 year-old woman came to our Beverly Hills office wishing to improve her skin tone and minimize fine lines, especially around her eyes. Over the past 2 years, despite using a good topical cream skin care regimen, wrinkles and dullness seemed to amplify. After a dermatology cosmetic consultation, we recommended a series of erbium resurfacing laser treatments. The fractionated erbium laser uses heat to precisely target water in the very top layers of skin. By doing so, it creates a grid of micro-injuries that stimulate a wound healing response. As the micro-wounds heal, collagen is produced, thickening the skin and softening lines. As damage flakes off over the course of 3-5 days, dullness and damage are replaced by fresh brighter skin. After just 3 erbium laser treatments spaced one month apart, she is thrilled by her rejuvenated appearance.
