Erbium Laser Resurfacing

Interested in laser resurfacing but don’t want to deal with the recovery period or side effects?

Consider trying Erbium laser resurfacing, a type of laser treatment that is much milder than other skin resurfacing treatments and still provides excellent results.

Our providers here at Houston Injections are specially trained to administer Erbium laser resurfacing so you can achieve the smooth skin you’ve always wanted.

Read below to learn more about Erbium laser resurfacing and its many benefits.

What is Erbium Laser Resurfacing?

Erbium laser resurfacing is designed to treat surface-level and moderate wrinkles and lines usually found on the face, hands, neck, or even the chest. Unlike other skin-resurfacing procedures, Erbium laser resurfacing produces a more focused removal of old skin layers, which results in minimal burning of adjacent tissue, lesser side effects, and faster recovery time.

By removing the old layer of skin, the production of a new one is triggered. The formation of new cells creates a layer of skin that is smoother, more evenly toned, and overall rejuvenated.

What Happens During an Erbium Laser Resurfacing Treatment?


All patients must first have a consultation with one of our providers prior to receiving Erbium laser resurfacing treatment. This helps us understand the overall results you’re looking to achieve from this procedure, as well as your medical background. We’ll also do an assessment of your skin to ensure you’re a proper candidate for this type of treatment.

After we get to know more about you and your skin, we will give you some pre-care instructions you can follow before your treatment day. This may include what types of skin care products to use or avoid, or any medications you should refrain from taking.

Day of Erbium Laser Resurfacing Treatment

Before beginning the procedure, one of our providers will prep your skin by cleaning it and applying a topical anesthetic.

Once the effects of the anesthetic have fully set in, we’ll begin the treatment by moving the laser across the targeted area. This will remove the outer layer of skin, pathing the way for a new layer to form.

After the procedure is complete, we’ll provide you with aftercare instructions that will help you achieve full results. These may include avoiding sun exposure as well as which types of skin products to use.

You may also experience redness or mild swelling following the treatment. This should subside in a few days to a week.
