Enjoy the Benefits of Laser Resurfacing With Less Downtime

Laser procedures yield incredible results, but their intense treatment means that patients have to commit to significant downtime afterward. With Erbium laser resurfacing, you’ll get all the benefits of a laser treatment, but without the excessive recovery time! Patients feel that their skin is recovered enough to return to usual activities within a week or less.

What to Expect

How the Erbium Laser Resurfacing Process Works



Before getting Erbium laser resurfacing, we ask that patients come in for a consultation at Synergy Medical Associates. We want to listen to your skin concerns and your goals for treatment, and we’ll evaluate your skin to see if Erbium laser resurfacing is a good fit for you!



At your session for Erbium laser resurfacing, we’ll give you protective eyewear to put on and apply a local anesthetic to minimize your discomfort. Then, we will move the laser device over your skin while it vaporizes the damaged or dead skin cells. Depending on the area of treatment, it could take an hour or more for the entire procedure.



Patients usually only need one or two follow-up sessions of Erbium laser resurfacing in Crossville. You can expect that for the next week you’ll be caring for your skin with special solutions and staying out of the sun while it heals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Erbium laser resurfacing hurt?

You will feel the tingling heat from the laser, but we use a local anesthetic to reduce any discomfort during the procedure. Most patients report that it is quite tolerable!

When will I notice results from Erbium laser resurfacing?

Your skin will take some time to show full results from your treatment. You’ll notice a difference once your skin heals within one to two weeks, but you’ll see the best results within 2 to 3 months!

What will my skin look like while I recover?

You can expect some redness and bruising for the next few days right after your procedure. Once it subsides, your skin might flake and peel like a sunburn. It might still look a little pink for the next few weeks until it recovers.
