Non-Ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Wondering if there is a procedure that treats signs of visible and invisible sun damage as well as signs of aging? Non-ablative laser skin resurfacing does just that. This advanced laser technology removes the outermost layers of skin while resurfacing new, fresh skin cells below.

Non-Ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing

Non-ablative skin resurfacing uses an Erbium laser to remove the outer layers of skin, resurfacing new skin cells below. Erbium lasers simultaneously stimulate the production of collagen and elastin by heating up underlying tissue, without breaking the skin barrier. Increasing these two natural proteins helps keep tissues strong and flexible so that it effortlessly bounces back to its original shape. As a result of its precision and its ability to be calibrated for different areas of treatment, Erbium lasers are preferred for skin resurfacing treatments.

  • Purpose: Improve skin texture and treat signs of sun damage.

  • Recovery: Varies from patient to patient.

  • Results: Reduced fine lines, wrinkling, and increased skin laxity.

What Can I Expect?


Erbium lasers penetrate the deeper layers of your skin that can cause mild discomfort. Our staff at YMD prioritizes the wellbeing of our patients, and will ensure you are comfortable throughout the procedure. A topical numbing cream will always be used, and Pronox (a nitrous oxide gas that is inhaled), local anesthetics, and oral medication can also be offered to help offset any discomfort depending on the patient.


Recovery period varies from patient to patient, and typically lasts from three to five days. Patience is key when recovering from any laser skin resurfacing procedure. The YMD team is here to walk with you every step of the recovery process, ensuring your skin is healing appropriately and that there are no signs of infection. Avoid using makeup or any harsh products on the skin until you are fully healed from this treatment.


Erbium laser usually requires a series of treatments for optimal results. After this youth-enhancing treatment, you will notice that your skin feels firm and appears more even toned; your fine lines and wrinkles will be subdued, and your skin will appear smooth and clear. Combining this advanced laser technology with medical grade skincare helps augment your results from the treatment while working to maintain them.
