The Erbium:YAG laser is an infra-red resurfacing laser used for skin resurfacing, face lifting and for the treatment of wrinkles, scars, mole removal and skin lesions. The first generation resurfacing lasers were known as ultra-pulsed CO2 lasers.
The Erbium laser has been designed to remove or noticeably decrease wrinkles and to improve the overall colour and skin texture of the face, neck and hands.
Full face Erbium Laser resurfacing can have dramatic effects: before and 3 months after
Laser skin resurfacing works by the laser light being absorbed by the water in your skin cells. This absorbed energy in turn causes the instantaneous vaporisation or destruction of the targeted cells. As the laser light passes over the skin, a mere 30 millionth of an inch of tissue is removed at a time. This incredible control allows the doctor to treat only as deeply as needed, from removing wrinkles to merely refreshing your overall skin appearance. After this aged and sun damaged skin is removed, new skin quickly re grows in its place and over the following weeks, new collagen is laid down, resulting in an overall firmer, brighter, rejuvenated skin.

Dr Beulink’s Personal Comments – Erbium Laser Resurfacing
Erbium lasers have been incredible pieces of technology that have served me well since 1998. In the very early days, I quickly realised that these lasers needed their clinical boundaries pushed somewhat to truly unlock their therapeutic potential. In doing so, I was able to establish that this laser could rival and then even surpass all other existing technologies for producing safe and truly amazing facial rejuvenation results.
A good skin preparation is paramount to the outcome and results of laser. We use a 6 week, multiple cream skin preparation. We have, however, had patients who decided to postpone their laser treatment because these creams worked so well!
If I had the choice between an erbium laser and a chemical peel, the laser wins hands down every time. Its accuracy and precision leaves very little room for error, and, along with my pre and post laser skin programme, produces fantastic results.
This is a “big procedure, big results” treatment. However, I believe the lasering itself, is only part of the final result (albeit a very important part!). I closely monitor the patient’s preparation and progress for six weeks prior to, and for three months after the laser. Strict protocols involving creams, nutrition, and sun exposure must be adhered to. Skin preparation and how you look after your skin post procedure is critical to the final result (I strongly believe that many problems that occur following the various rejuvenation procedures out there, are caused by a failure of the medical operator and/or the patient to appreciate this philosophy).
How long do the results last? I have been using the Erbium resurfacing system for over a decade now. I have seen back people who have had facial laser resurfacing over 7 years previously, and still looking better now than they did 7 years ago. As one lady told me, “The last 7 years of enjoyment and satisfaction I’ve had, makes the 7 days after the lasering quite insignificant”. That’s the “wow” in true perspective!
Costs for laser resurfacing procedure can vary depending on what areas need treating and how much work is involved. Costs can range from $5000 - $18,000, and this includes your pre treatment check and post treatment check ups. This does not cover your creams (approximately $500) or prescription fee.
If you are considering an erbium laser procedure, you would firstly need to have a one hour, one on one, initial consultation and assessment with Dr Beulink. He will go over your concerns with you, see whether you are an appropriate candidate for the erbium laser and that it will give you the results you are looking for. He will also discuss downtime, before and after photos, results, side effects, costs, and any other procedures that may be of benefit for you. At the end of this consultation you will have a full idea of exactly what the erbium laser can do for you, and just what it would take to have this procedure.
