The Erbium

The Erbium : YAG Laser

The Erbium: YAG laser is a new addition to the armamentarium of skin resurfacing lasers. This laser, with a wavelength of 2940 nm, produces laser irradiation in the near-infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Erbium: YAG lasers are used for laser resurfacing of human skin. Example uses include treating acne scarring, deep rhytides, and melasma. In addition to being absorbed by water, the output of Erbium: YAG lasers is also absorbed by hydroxyapatite, which makes it a good laser for cutting bone as well as soft tissue.

The effective and powerful Erbium: YAG laser brings another productive way to enhance your skin. The energy present in this laser operates on a certain wavelength where it will interact with the skin in a rather gentle manner. The laser can easily interact with H20. This is a benefit because water can take in the laser, diffuse the energy of the laser, and can yield wonderful results.

There are many different fantastic properties present with this innovation. This innovation contributes to a more effective process and enables professionals at DSC Beauty to help you reach your goals.
