Keep Father Time From Marching On: New Laser Treatments Offer Gentle and Effective Skin Resurfacing in a Flash

eduction in wrinkles three months after treatment, with study participants noting a 68 percent improvement in overall facial appearance," said Dr. Dover. "We concluded that plasma skin resurfacing using the multiple low-energy treatment technique delivers significant improvement comparable to a single high-energy treatment, but with less healing time."

Superficial Erbium:YAG Laser Resurfacing

One of the most widely used lasers for skin resurfacing, the Erbium:YAG laser produces energy in varying wavelengths that penetrates the skin and is quickly absorbed by water, scattering the heat generated from the light of the laser. While patients with moderate to more severe wrinkles and photodamage are the best candidates for this laser treatment, the high amount of energy needed to improve aging skin requires the removal of part of the epidermis and the deeper tissues of the dermis. This more invasive procedure also requires a long healing time, as redness and swelling could last for several weeks.

Now, a modified version of this technology known as superficial Erbium:YAG laser resurfacing uses short-pulsed wavelengths to create a gentler treatment with fewer side effects and decreased downtime. Dr. Dover noted that this superficial laser procedure works well for patients with less extensive skin damage, such as mild wrinkles and slight skin discoloration, and the resulting mild redness and swelling generally only last for two to three days.

"The advantage of superficial Erbium:YAG laser resurfacing is that we can easily vary the amount of energy delivered to the skin to produce the desired effect," said Dr. Dover. "This technology has a proven track record, and it is a great option for patients who want noticeable results but a shorter healing time than the traditional high-powered procedure."
