Could someone explain the difference between the different types of lasers?

Facial aging -- Lasers (erbium/Co2), Fraxel, Radiofrequency like Intensif/Viva, Microneedling/PRP, Peels
There are many types of lasers and now even radiofrequency technology with or without needling. I suggest you get a formal consultation to determine if an ablative laser (erbium/co2) if better for you or if a non ablative (fraxel, viva, intensif etc) is better. Sometimes a ccombinationis better. Dr. Emer.
