Erbium laser peeling, also called Erbium laser resurfacing, is a cosmetic procedure that eliminates fine lines and wrinkles from the skin. The procedure has minimal downtime and a quicker recovery compared to other types of laser resurfacing treatments, like CO2 laser resurfacing. The CO2 removes the deeper layer of affected skin while Erbium laser treats surface-level or mildly deeper surfaces of the face, hands, neck, and chest. So, Erbium laser skin resurfacing in Dubai is an ideal option for those who do not have severe skin concerns and want a less invasive treatment with rapid recovery.

Erbium peeling treatment in Dubai is a viable option for many patients, but they must have realistic expectations of the procedure. Anyone seeking a minimally invasive treatment to correct fine lines and wrinkles on the face, back, neck, chest, or hands is an ideal candidate.
Erbium peeling treatment helps to treat:
- Fine Lines and Wrinkles
- Acne Scars
- Facial Skin Laxity
- Uneven Skin Tone and Texture
Since Erbium laser surfacing in Dubai is non-surgical, candidates do not need special preparation. However, the specialist may advise you to take precautionary steps to get the desired outcomes. Some general pre-procedure instructions include:
- Wash your treatment areas properly before getting into the procedure.
- Avoid tanning products.
- Abstain from prolonged sun exposure for at least a week before treatment.
- If your skin is damaged by sunburn, wait until it has recovered before undergoing the treatment.
How does it work?
Erbium laser peeling peels off the skin’s topmost layer (epidermis) to unfold the new and younger-looking skin surface. This treatment is designed to correct an individual’s skin concerns like sagging skin, scars, skin tone, pigmentation, wrinkles, etc. The procedure also tightens the skin by enhancing collagen production.
Your dermatologist will administer local anesthesia to numb the treatment areas. If the treatment area is a tiny part of the face, it will take 30-to 40 minutes to complete. However, if it is a full-face treatment, it may take a bit longer than that.
Some general post-procedure instructions are as follows:
- It takes a few days for the scabbing and swelling to disappear and reveal the fresh skin. Do not scratch skin growths during this time.
- In the case of discomfort, apply cold compresses as advised by your dermatologist.
- Use a gentle cleanser to wash your face, and do not scrub it while rinsing.
- It is better to avoid prolonged bathing for a few days.
- Avoid pulling and picking up the skin.
- Do not swim until the skin heals.
Recovery and Results
Erbium laser peel is a comfortable procedure that can easily be performed in a dermatologist’s office as a day procedure. The recovery period is quick and usually uneventful. Most candidates only take 1-2 weeks to recover after the procedure. After the procedure, the dermatologist will prescribe some oral or topical medications to use regularly to recover fast.
The results for this treatment will not become noticeable immediately. Generally, it takes a few weeks for the results to become evident after the skin heals completely.
Cost of Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing
The cost of an Erbium laser peel is not fixed because a number of variable factors influence the final price. Some cost-determining factors are as follows:
- Skin condition
- Number of sessions
- Desired results
