Erbium

Erbium laser at KNAP Institute

The Erbium laser treatment is focused on the approach of deep wrinkles and scars. This treatment is ideal for general skin improvement but can also be used locally such as (acne) scars and wrinkles around the mouth and eyes. The laser tackles wrinkles and scarring in the face, but the treatment also works well on the body such as décolleté, neck and hands. The treatment can be a nice addition to a filler treatment, but is also extremely suitable as a separate treatment. The treatment is effective but also intensive, you will have to take a down time because the skin will renew after the treatment.

About our treatment

The difference between the Erbium laser and a traditional CO2 laser

With conventional CO2 lasers, the entire surface of the skin is irradiated at once, causing the entire area to be injured and the repair to take many times longer. In the Erbium laser, the surrounding non-injured tissue accelerates the healing process of the injured tissue.

Before the treatment

U dient eerst op een consult te komen zodat de therapeute goed naar de huid kan kijken. Daarnaast adviseren we om twee weken voor de behandeling te stoppen met roken, hierdoor wordt het herstel na de behandeling bevorderd. Tevens raden we het gebruik van aspirine af en dient de zon zowel  2 weken voor als na de behandeling vermeden te worden.

After the treatment

After the treatment, the skin will look red and possible swelling can be prevented with an ice pack. In the following days, the skin may be darker colored and crusting and edema formation may occur, after which the skin will start slowly with the recovery process. The downtime is limited to a maximum of 5 days.

In general, we recommend this treatment for the 40+ skin but we can also treat younger skin when there is premature wrinkling or the presence of deep scars. The laser is applicable to different skin types but unfortunately not on dark skin because of the amount of pigment.

However, it is always important to discuss the expected result with the doctor in advance on the basis of the current skin condition.

During the treatment with the Erbium laser, a laser beam is fractionated into several thin rays. With these rays miniscule holes (which are not visible) are shot into the skin. Because of these minor injuries, the skin will rebuild itself. In this process, collagen is also formed which fills the wrinkles or scars from inside as it were.

With conventional CO2 lasers, the entire surface of the skin is irradiated at once, causing the entire area to be injured and the repair to take many times longer. In the Erbium laser, the surrounding non-injured tissue accelerates the healing process of the injured tissue.

The laser treatment itself is fast and can be completed within a few minutes, depending on the area to be treated.

The number of treatments depends on the skin condition and the intended result, you assume between 1 and 4 treatments. The results are almost immediately visible, but the final result can only be assessed after approximately 2 months. At that moment we can also look for a possible follow-up treatment for you.

The result depends on your skin condition. In general, a significant skin rejuvenation can be realized. The structure of your skin will improve considerably so that you will regain your even complexion and radiance. In addition, with this treatment we can significantly reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

With the fractional laser we can, among other things, treat the face, the neck, the décolleté and the hands. In addition, this type of laser can also be used locally such as (acne) scars, wrinkles around the mouth and eyes.

The Erbium laser is suitable for the 40+ skin that shows a moderate to significant skin aging. However, the treatment is unfortunately not suitable for people with dark skin because of the amount of pigment in the skin.

The number of treatments depends on the skin condition and the intended result. Usually 3 to 5 treatments are sufficient. During an intake interview we draw up a treatment plan together with you in which the number of treatments is mentioned as well as the expected pattern of results. We also try to take your available budget into account as much as possible.

All possible risks are discussed in detail with you during an intake interview. During this meeting we can analyze your skin in detail and discuss any contraindications with you to exclude risks.

During the intake, the doctor can determine what the right intensity is for your skin condition and expectation pattern. This treatment intensity can be adjusted very accurately in order to achieve the best possible result and of course ensure the safety of the operation. It is not automatic that a higher intensity gives better results, every skin is different and here the treatment is adjusted.

The down time of a treatment with the fractional Erbium laser is fortunately short and limited to a maximum of 5 days. Immediately after the laser treatment your skin will become hot and you will be provided with compresses to cool the skin. The day after the treatment, the skin may appear red and swollen, and crusting may also occur. These complaints will be minimal after 5 days at the latest.
