What is an Erbium Laser Peel?

If your skin is looking a little lacklustre or your pigmentation is out of control, our Erbium Laser Peel could be just what the doctor ordered! With this light laser peel, you can achieve a beautiful, polished, pearl-like glow with minimal downtime and discomfort.

Our Erbium Laser Peel treats pigmentation, sun damage and discolouration; improves skin texture; and refines the surface of the skin. It can also improve the appearance of superficial and deep wrinkles, as well as acne scars. Book in today for a consultation!

How do Erbium Laser Peels work?

This treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest (décolletage) and hands. The laser is attracted to water in the skin and as the device passes over the skin, damaged cells are gently vaporised, layer by layer. As this occurs, the laser stimulates collagen production and improves skin texture.

Depending on your skin goals, we can adjust the intensity of the treatment. If you are looking to remove surface imperfections and light pigment, a gentle peel may be all you need. Patients requiring treatment for more extensive sun damage and ageing concerns may benefit from a deeper Erbium Laser Peel.

How does the treatment feel?

We may suggest the use of topical anesthetics to ease any discomfort. It’s not uncommon to experience a warm sensation as the laser passes over your skin, but it should not be painful.

Afterwards, the treated area may feel slightly tender, like you’ve been sunburnt, but any discomfort should be minimal and temporary.

When will you notice a change?

You may experience redness initially and dryness for up to a week after the treatment. Usually, a gentle exfoliation occurs after 3-4 days, revealing gorgeous, glowing skin. Best results are often evident about two weeks post-treatment.

Who is a suitable candidate?

People with fair skin tend to respond well to this treatment. However, we have seen positive results with a range of skin types, so it’s worth booking in for a consultation. We’ll go assess your skin and explain whether an Erbium Laser Peel is right for you.

How many sessions are usually required?

Most patients see noticeable results after just one treatment. In some instances, we may suggest two to three treatments to really get on top of certain skin concerns.

How long do the results last?

Results vary from person to person, but some patients experience ongoing benefits for up to 12 months. In some cases, even longer lasting results can be achieved when complemented by a skin care regimen prescribed by the team at Southern Cosmetics.
