Erbium YAG Laser Skin Resurfacing

Erbium YAG Laser Skin Resurfacing

Enigma Medi Spa is excited to make available the state-of-the-art Rohrer Aesthetics Spectrum Laser /IPL System – a multi-platform workstation equipped with the Erbium YAG Laser. The Erbium laser wavelength, also known as Er:YAG, is 2940nm and is absorbed much more efficiently by water in tissues than the CO2 laser.

Erbium Laser skin resurfacing, also called Erbium Laser Peel, is the treatment of choice for anyone who wants to achieve dramatic improvement in their skin’s appearance with minimal downtime. The procedure removes surface pigmentation and mild to moderate fine lines and wrinkles on the face, hands, neck, and chest.

Erbium laser delivers better corrective treatment than IPL Photofacial while, at the same time, is not as aggressive as fractional CO2 laser therapy or DOT therapy and has a much shorter post-treatment recovery time.

The Erbium Laser Skin Resurfacing is the ideal treatment for those looking to successfully decrease pore size, improve skin texture and clarity, and remove superficial lines to moderately deep wrinkles with less pain, fewer side-effects, and a more rapid recovery than other laser treatments.

This procedure can also address multiple patients’ concerns, including scars, uneven skin texture, skin tone, freckles, and pigmentation conditions.


The Erbium Laser safely targets with the laser beam and removes a layer of the skin. The treatment depth will depend on the skin condition, desired outcome, and client’s expectation for downtime. Spectrum Erbium Laser can affect tissue with micron precision, which making the procedure more predictable and safer.


Erbium Laser skin resurfacing has a shorter recovery period and fewer side effects. Those receiving treatment should still expect their skin to appear pink or red after the procedure and peel for up to five days. Some mild swelling may also occur but improves within 1-2 days. Naturally, the healing process varies from patient to patient, depending on their general overall health condition, individual factors, and the depth of your laser peel. It generally takes five to ten days for the skin to heal. The larger the treated area requires longer recovery time. For a full recovery and visible results, it can take up to 3-4 weeks.

It is important to note that consultation is an essential part of the treatment process.


At Enigma Medi Spa, we offer topical lidocaine to minimize any discomfort. Most patients are comfortable throughout the Erbium Laser procedure. If you have a darker skin tone, Erbium Laser peel is a much better choice than other aggressive skin resurfacing options.
