Dr. Fernando Burstein has recently added the Sciton® Erbium laser to his menu of minimally invasive treatment options. The Erbium laser utilizes light energy to treat deep wrinkles and lines, severe acne scars, and post traumatic scarring. By delivering light energy to the skin, Erbium exfoliates dead, damaged skin cells and generates collagen production for younger, healthy-looking skin. Erbium is available for in-office use to resolve minor to moderate skin conditions, but Dr. Burstein may also perform laser skin resurfacing after a surgical procedure such as a facelift or browlift. Erbium can also treat plastic surgery scars and is routinely used to maintain plastic surgery results.
In addition to laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Burstein also offers other non-surgical facial treatments including cosmetic injectables and chemical peels. Cosmetic injectables such as Botox® and Restylane® smooth facial wrinkles and furrows. Chemical peels gently remove dead skin cells to reveal new, healthy skin underneath. This procedure improves mild skin conditions such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and scars. Like laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels can be performed in-office or directly after a surgical procedure. However, Erbium laser treatmentsaddress deeper wrinkling and more prominent acne, pigmentation, and scars.
