Erbium YAG Laser

Erbium YAG Laser

Introduction

Skin problems can cause self-consciousness in even the most confident of people, and just get worse as we age, whether they be wrinkles, pigmentation, or scars. Laser resurfacing is a popular, effective treatment for a variety of skin problems or conditions.

One of the laser resurfacing devices we use at PHI is the Erbium:YAG laser. This produces energy in the mid infrared invisible light spectrum which can be used to precisely target skin and water-holding tissue, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. This creates a controlled thermal injury or wound that leads to remodelling of collagen (the protein in skin that controls skin strength and elasticity).

To see whether the Erbium YAG laser treatment is right for you, book a no obligation consultation with one of our experienced clinicians at PHI Clinic today.
