About

Aging happens to everyone. Over time, the blazing San Diego sunshine can leave skin wrinkled and cause age spots. Prime Med Spa’s Erbium YAG laser skin resurfacing effectively treats wrinkles, acne scarring, crepey skin, and signs of aging by vaporizing the damaged skin cells on the surface and revealing new, fresh skin, while also deeply stimulating healthy skin and collagen to develop underneath.*

When it comes to getting a Laser Skin Resurfacing procedure at Prime Med Spa in San Diego, many patients hear the word “resurfacing” and incorrectly assume laser skin toning is a serious procedure. That could not be further from the truth. Many patients can be treated with little to no discomfort in less than 30 minutes with only mild redness to the skin as a side effect.*  Erbium laser has a much faster recovery (2-4 days) than CO2 and other much more hot and painful lasers.  Erbium laser is gentle, yet effective, and can even be performed on the eyelids to tighten them, thereby reducing wrinkles.

If you seek skin that looks younger and healthier, come to Prime Med Spa in San Diego for laser skin resurfacing. In order to get the best results for your skin, we suggest treatments be performed in conjunction with excellent skin care products.  Be sure to ask your Prime Med Spa provider for a complete skin care recommendation to maximize your treatment results.

FAQ

What is Erbium Laser Skin Toning & Resurfacing and how does it work?

This procedure is able to provide both deep and superficial skin resurfacing, and targets wrinkles, acne scarring and other signs of aging.* The light given off by the Erbium laser is absorbed by water in your skin cells. In effect, damaged skin cells are vaporized resulting in collagen production.

What results will I be able to see after my treatment?

You will notice that your skin will look more youthful and vibrant.* This is because, as dead skin cells are removed, new skin will quickly regrow in it’s place. For best results, we recommend that patients come back every 4 weeks.*

Who is a good candidate for this procedure?

Anyone with fine wrinkles, color irregularities, sun damage, acne scarring, or other skin concerns is a good candidate for Erbium Laser skin resurfacing.

How long does this procedure take?

This procedure only takes about 30 minutes.

How long is the recovery process?

Recovery time depends on the depth of the procedure. Superficial skin resurfacing takes about three days to heal, whereas deep resurfacing can take up to 10 days to heal.* It is very important to avoid direct sunlight during the first few weeks after the procedure. Hats and sunscreen must be used at all times, as skin will be highly sensitive.
