Sometimes the results are not significant until the 6th and even the 9th month, depending on the person’s age, their aftercare routine and their history of smoking.
Potential Risks & Complications
Although the erbium laser has substantially reduced many of the risks associated with laser procedures, infection, temporary or permanent changes in pigmentation, even scarring or other unsatisfactory results can occur. Fortunately, these complications are quite rare. As with any medical procedure, be certain to thoroughly discuss any questions or concerns you may have with your physician.
Depending on your specific treatment, your skin professional will provide detailed skin care instructions. To avoid the risk of infection and ensure a positive result, please follow these instructions carefully. After you have healed, you will need to protect your new skin. In the early weeks and months following treatment, your skin will be very susceptible to sun damage.
