Want a smoother, clearer, younger overall look delivered gently and minus the extended downtime that other cosmetic procedures require? The Erbium Yag Laser Peel by Azul Medspa - Dr. Weeks MD is just the skin resurfacing solution you're seeking.
This high-powered laser produces energy in a wavelength that's shorter than the conventional CO2 laser and more gently penetrates the skin. The energy is readily absorbed by naturally occurring water in your skin's layers, which quickly disperses the heat effects. This allows for the removal of thin layers of sun-damaged or aged skin tissue while leaving surrounding healthy issue untouched.
And it's not just for the face. Erbium Yag Laser Peels can be performed on the neck and hands as well. It's precise, painless way to remove aged and sun-damaged tissue and to stimulate skin cell turnover, which stimulates production of collagen and elastin fibers that strengthen the skin.
Among the top praises from patients is that this technology offers significant results with little to no downtime. Treatments take just 15 to 20 minutes and require no anesthesia. Typically, patients experience a pinkish look to their skin and a sensation similar to a mild sunburn immediately after an Erbium Yaz Laser Peel treatment. But you'll be able to apply makeup the very next day. Your skin will peel over the next few days, revealing tighter, younger looking, naturally healthy new skin. Depending upon your skin's condition and your desired outcome, a single treatment or a series of three monthly treatments likely will be all you need to see beautiful results.
