What is Erbium Laser Resurfacing?
Laser energy is emitted to the epidermal layers of the skin in an “island-like” range across the treatment area. The precise settings of the Fotona laser allows targeting of only pre-determined areas, while the surrounding tissue cells remain intact. The ablated treatment areas encourage the body’s wound healing response to stimulate fibroblasts and activate production of new collagen, and is effective in treating many types of skin conditions.
The Fotona Erbium Resurfacing Laser involves using Er: YAG and Nd: YAG laser settings that offer adjustable treatment options for all patient skin types and concerns, such as acne scars.

How long does it take to heal?
