Erbium Yag Laser Extraction
WHAT IS ERBIUM YAG LASER EXTRACTION?
The Erbium Yag is a solid-state laser to achieve smoother skin through resurfacing. It can gently treat sensitive and delicate area such as the neck, round the eye, the mouth, and the backs of the hands.
The Erbium Yag Laser is also an excellent treatment of choice for acne extraction. This technique is much more efficient and considerably less painful than using a needle to deroot acne cysts or comedones. The laser drills a tiny opening for the pimple to be hygienically extracted. Unlike popping a pimple, there is little to no scarring because the depth of drilling is specifically measured. This procedure is highly effective for mopping up comedones and pustular acne.
