The Erbium Yag is a 2940 nm laser which primary targets water on the surface of the skin. Given its relatively low thermal collateral damage to tissue, it can be safely used in phototypes I-V.  The treatment is tailored based on the skin colored and the degree of peeling that is desired (superficial, medium depth or deep).

At HDPS we have a fully ablative Erbium laser which can treat the following:

  • Sun damaged skin
  • Fine lines
