Erbium YAG is a type of skin resurfacing that aids in making a huge difference in the appearance of the skin. This type of laser treatment can safely and effectively be applied on different parts of the body such as face, neck, and back of the hands. Erbium YAG is chiefly used to skin damaged by the sun, removal of age spots, and reduction of pore size. This newly introduced laser treatment can also be used for more critical treatments like stimulation of natural collagen so that it can help resolve problems like deep wrinkles. Erbium YAG can also help smooth the texture and tone of your skin. This laser treatment is also effective at making fine lines appear softer in nature.
Many people prefer to undergo a session of Erbium YAG because it involves less damage to the tissues than CO2 laser and the side-effects caused by this type of laser therapy like swelling, redness, and bruising are less. So the recovery time of Erbium YAG is also less than a CO2 laser treatment, however, most people will need more treatments than with a CO2 laser.
