Laser resurfacing treatments with carbon dioxide and erbium lasers

Laser resurfacing is primarily for the treatment of skin texture, wrinkles, and to firm the skin. It is generally done with our carbon dioxide laser or erbium laser or both these lasers together in the same session. Treatments can be tailored to your requirements and performed at high or low levels.

High-level treatment – involves several passes over the entire skin surface using the carbon dioxide lasers and erbium lasers. This produces significant improvements in sun damage, scarring, skin laxity and overall skin quality in one treatment. A general anaesthetic or intravenous sedation is required for full-face or larger areas*. Significant downtime is required (usually 10 to 14 days at home), and redness of the treated skin can persist for around 2 months or more.
