The Whisper-3G Erbium laser skin resurfacing treatment rejuvenates the skin for a healthier, smoother appearance. The Whisper laser can improve a variety of skin conditions including fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone and texture, and sun damage. This is a gentle, minimally invasive treatment.
Dr. Buckingham performs Whisper-3G Erbium laser skin resurfacing in the office setting at the Buckingham Center for Facial Plastic Surgery of Austin, Texas. The treatment takes just fifteen to thirty minutes to complete. Because there is minimal discomfort, a topical anesthetic at most may be used.
The Whisper-3G Erbium laser works by emitting a beam of laser light that precisely removes the outer layers of aged and sun damaged tissue. This stimulates skin cell turnover while triggering the skin’s natural response to form new collagen and elastin fibers to strengthen and rejuvenate the skin. Following treatment, patients will see a reduction in fine wrinkles and age spots and an overall smoother, more vibrant skin appearance.
Recovery following Whisper-3G Erbium laser skin resurfacing is minimal. Though the skin may appear red right after treatment and flaky for about three to four days, patients can immediately return to work and other normal activities. Makeup can be worn the next day. For optimal results, patients usually choose to receive multiple sessions over the course of several months.
