The Erbium laser aims to regenerate the surface of the skin. It is a treatment of choice for all scars and stretch marks.
It is aimed at both women and men with the aim of smoothing out a scar and an alteration in the skin’s appearance such as xanthelasma, relief from an old tattoo or stretch marks.
Instead of abrading the entire treated skin surface, this partial ablative laser will create microscopic wells, leaving intact skin between each well. By healing, these wells will close and lead to skin resurfacing (renewal of the epidermis, stimulation of collagen).
Compared to conventional abrasion lasers, the interest is to gradually achieve an equivalent result in several sessions.
Skin regeneration is necessary to see the result. This will therefore be visible after 3 weeks to 1 month. After the 1st session, the skin texture is much more supple and elastic.
The course of the session is done without anesthesia.
Immediately after the session, the treated area is marked by redness, as well as a feeling of warmth which may also be accompanied by temporary edema (which generally disappears within 24 to 48 hours) and/or small crusts.
A greasy cream will be prescribed for you and should be applied regularly for the first few days.
Sunscreen should be applied for 2 weeks after treatment.
True complications are rare following fractional ablative treatment. In practice, the vast majority of these treatments take place without any problem and the patients are fully satisfied with their results.
However, and despite their rarity, the main risks are:

Laser resurfacing requires between 1 to 3 sessions depending on the quality of the skin and the depth of the scar or stretch mark.
