How does it work?

The procedure also tightens the skin by enhancing collagen production. This treatment is designed in a way that it can correct individual’s specific concerns like sagging skin, scar, skin tone and texture, pigmentations and wrinkles etc. The procedure has minimal downtime and fewer recovery period.

Is treatment painful?
Since erbium laser resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure with no pain and discomfort, however, those undergoing the procedure may experience mild redness and swelling and their skin may get pink or red.
What to expect?
