An Affordable Method for Restoring a Youthful Appearance
Erbium laser, the latest skin resurfacing treatments for anti-aging and sun-damaged skin, is offered at Renaissance Plastic Surgery in St. Peters. Designed to remove surface-level and deeper lines and wrinkles, Dr. Boschert, Dr. Craig, and Dr. Mills use Erbium laser technology on the face, hands, neck, and chest.
How Does Laser Resurfacing Work?
At Renaissance, our laser treatments are completely tailored to meet your specific needs. Our plastic surgeons will work with you to determine your skin care treatment plan, which may involve preparing the skin with Retin-A and Hydroquinone prior to your Erbium laser procedure. These prescription products may begin six weeks or more prior to your scheduled treatment and are tailored to your skin type.
Since the Erbium laser is tunable, the depth is adjusted to vaporize damaged skin cells specific to your concern. Your aesthetic treatment with Erbium is usually done as an outpatient procedure which lasts between thirty minutes to two hours. After your treatment, our plastic surgeons will apply a protective dressing to the tissue and also provide topical solutions to promote the healing process.
The main benefits of Erbium laser resurfacing are:
- Improvement of moderate to deep wrinkles
- Diminshed appearance of scarring (even acne scarring)
- Reduction of severe sun damage, including pre-cancerous skin cells
- Increased skin elasticity and collagen production
