Er: Glass laser treatments
True beauty lies in the beholder’s eyes

We have two Er:Glass lasers: one of 1540 nm and one of 1565 nm wavelength. The laser emits energy in microbundles of 300 microns diameter (0.3 mm) (laser of 1540 nm), or 110 microns (0.11 mm) (laser of 1565 nm). These bundles cause a denaturation of the dermis without removing the epithelial surface. Each column of the denatured dermis will be substituted by new tissue. It is mainly used for the facial rejuvenation in patients who do not want to stay away from social life for more than a couple of days. It is also used in the treatment of acne scarring and scarring in general, and more recently, it has been used with a success in the stretch marks treatment.
