You may have heard of chemical peels to remove and exfoliate the skin surface. Now technology has transformed the principle of the chemical peel to a laser treatment without the chemicals.
Our Erbium laser is our most effective treatment for many signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, dry and damaged surface skin, large pores, sun damage and acne scarring.
Enhanced Laser Resurfacing takes years off your appearance with this revolutionized procedure. A series of four treatments is recommended one month apart for optimal results. For added benefits maintenance treatments can be added.
The Venus Erbium peel exfoliates the skin like the chemical peel and the microdermabrasion. The epithelial layer is removed in all of these procedures with the goal of rejuvenating the skin to an even tone and smooth, glowing surface. Only with the Venus erbium laser is an accurate custom depth achieved. The chemical peel and the microdermabrasion remove to a depth of 5nm but the Venus erbium laser delivers to a depth of 30-60nm. At this depth, acne scars, chicken pox scars, wrinkles, benign lesions and pigments are treated. The depth can be customized with the lightest called the lunchtime peel and the middle strength a weekend peel.
The discomfort is minimal. When the larger depths are achieved, a topical anesthetic is used. For the weekend peel, there is down time for two days. During this time the laser causes the skin to exfoliate and it also skin tightens. Other down time frames can be discussed at the time of consultation.
Anyone who has deep scars, moderate wrinkles. and overall poor skin texture would benefit from the Venus (erbium) Laser.
