What is the downtime with the Erbium MicroLaserPeel treatment?

Erbium MicroLaserPeel laser resurfacing is an excellent treatment for many conditions to improve the texture, tone, and color of the skin.  The Erbium laser is a tried and true laser technology, and we are pleased with the consistent, predictable outcomes the treatments offer. 

 

With the Erbium MicroLaserPeel treatment, the recovery period is often referred to as “social downtime” which refers to the time away from usual activities such as work and outdoor activities.  Social downtime implies that, although one is healing, they may not be comfortable with their appearance and may wish to forego public activities for a certain period after the laser resurfacing treatments.  In our experience, most patients that undergo Erbium laser resurfacing treatments will return to work or school within 5-7 days.  More patients are closer to the fifth day than the seventh.

The healing process after Erbium laser resurfacing is generally uneventful with redness and peeling resolving dramatically with each passing day.  The skin care regimen in the first 3 days takes some diligence and adherence to it will directly improve and hasten the healing process.

How many laser treatments are usually performed for laser resurfacing?

At Celibre, laser resurfacing can be used in the context of laser procedures that involve downtime (time spent at home recovering) and those that do not.  For the purposes of this question, we will talk about laser resurfacing in terms of the (downtime) procedure that improves wrinkles, acne scars and other textured skin imperfections by removing the top layer of the skin (epidermis).  In addition to "resurfacing" the skin by removing it and having it improve the texture as part of the healing process, laser resurfacing uses thermal/heat (laser) energy to promote collagen stimulation, which also improves the texture and plumpness of the skin.  Currently, there are many types of technologies used in laser resurfacing such as erbium lasers, fractionated lasers, plasma treatments, C02 lasers, and combinations of these technologies.

Generally speaking, for those treatments that involve social downtime of 5 to 7 days, the recommended amount of laser treatments is a series of no less than three for optimal results.  Some patients may also benefit from more than three.  For most treatment plans, a series of three laser resurfacing treatments is an ideal starting in reaching the goal of improved skin color, tone, and texture.

What is Erbium laser resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing may be accomplished with several different types of laser technology.  At Celibre, we rely on a tried and true laser resurfacing technology called the Erbium YAG laser. 

The Erbium laser works by removing the outer layers of the epidermis to dramatically resolve pigmentation and to improve fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, and skin laxity.  In addition to ablating (removing) the outer layers of the epidermis very precisely, the laser also sends much heat/thermal energy down into the deeper layers to promote new collagen stimulation.  Because collagen is the building blocks of our skin and tissue, this is a very desirable outcome and leads to the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles.

Most patients benefit from a series of three erbium laser treatments spaced four weeks apart.  The downtime associated with the erbium laser resurfacing treatments is referred to as “social downtime” because you can go out and about if you need to, but most prefer not to because of redness or peeling.  This term implies that one may not feel comfortable with their appearance for approximately 4 to 5 days following the procedure although there is minimal discomfort during the healing phase.  Most patients return to their usual activities of work and school after five days if not sooner.

Although there are a myriad of brand names, newer technologies, etc. – we believe the erbium laser provides our patients with the most consistent and positive laser resurfacing outcomes.
