The Aerolase LightPod Neo laser offers patients incredible results with quick, comfortable, no-downtime treatments for all skin tones and types. We use this laser to treat acne, as well as photo damage and skin rejuvenation/tightening. Aerolase is perfect for those who have struggled with clearing their acne by using traditional methods or medications.
A highly powerful yet gentle beam of light heats the sebaceous gland and its surroundings to effectively destroy the bacteria to leave your skin clean, smooth and acne free.
The LightPod Neo also offers a uniquely noninvasive skin rejuvenation & tightening treatment to stimulate healthy collagen and restore your skin’s youthful appearance. Only a beam of laser light touches the skin for the most pleasant treatment available.
A series of treatments will be recommended depending on the condition of the skin. Treatments are spaced 1-4 weeks apart depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment plan.
Acne patients will see a reduction in frequency and severity of breakouts, as well as a decrease in redness and inflammation in the skin. Patients will also see a reduction in oil output and pore size.
When treating for skin rejuvenation, this treatment will help to improve clarity in skin tone and texture. It also helps reduce redness and brown spots as well as help soften wrinkles without any patient downtime.
There is minimal downtime associated with this procedure. Skin may appear slightly pink after, but makeup can be applied, and normal activities can be resumed 24 hours after. Acne patients do not have to stop using their topical regimens while going through their Aerolase treatments. If treating darker pigmented spots, spots may darken before fading or sloughing off.
NeoClear is a medical aesthetic laser offering patients of all ages and skin types a safe, effective, and comfortable treatment for acne using advanced 650-microsecond technology. NeoClear is a powerful acne treatment that eliminates the major factors causing acne including excess sebum production, inflammation, and the p. acnes bacteria. Previously, many different treatments, medications, or skin care options were required to address these factors, but NeoClear can achieve this with a single device. NeoClear is a unique treatment as there are no side effects, is very tolerable for patients, and the results can be seen quickly – in as little as a single treatment. NeoClear is an excellent option for patients that do not want to take prescription medications or are unable to. Plus, with increasing prescription costs, NeoClear is an excellent, cost-effective solution for patients’ acne problems.
How does NeoClear work? The unique settings of the 650-microsecond device allow energy to penetrate deeply into the skin within a highly safe and tolerable pulse to reduce sebum production, suppress inflammation, and destroy the p. acnes bacteria to help clear current acne breakouts and to stop them in the future. Also, the deep heating energy helps build collagen, which can reduce the appearance of acne scars and leave skin looking radiant.
How long do the treatments take? NeoClear treatments typically take between 10-30 minutes depending on the severity of acne and the size of the area affected (face, neck, chest, torso). NeoClear is highly safe, effective, and tolerable for all skin types, all ages, and all types of acne. Treatment may be performed without any skin cooling, anesthetic, and even without the need to touch the skin.
As skin ages, dermal quality can worsen causing enlarged pores and lax skin. Unwanted conditions such as redness, veins, sun damage, and age spots may become prevalent. NeoSkin is an aesthetic medical laser that enables a comprehensive treatment addressing the tone texture, redness, pigmentation and laxity, of the skin in a single treatment with a single device. Whether you are looking to restore your clear, youthful skin or prevent signs of aging, NeoSkin can help achieve your skin goals!
How NeoSkin works? First, NeoSkin’s 650-microsecond energy targets water in the dermis to stimulate collagen production, which reduces fine lines, pores, and tightens skin. Then, if present, NeoSkin targets melanin and hemoglobin to clear brown pigment, clear vascular lesions, and suppress inflammation. This NeoSkin treatment is a quick, customized treatment to address each patient’s specific needs. NeoSkin is able to accomplish the results of what used to take numerous treatments and treatment methods.
How long do the treatments take? NeoSkin treatments typically take 20-60 minutes depending on what conditions need to be addressed and how large the treatment area is (face, neck, chest). Treatment is safe, effective, and tolerable for all skin types and may be performed without any skin cooling, anesthetic, and even without the need to touch the skin.
Melasma and Hyperpigmentation are multi-factorial conditions that involve the epidermal melanin, dermal melanin, and vasculature, often requiring a complex treatment regimen to achieve clearance and prevent recurrence. The Aerolase Neo, however, can help patients of all skin types and tones achieve clearance with fewer treatments.
How does Aerolase Neo Work? The Neo’s 650-microsecond laser energy is delivered into the dermis and epidermis to break up melanin deposits while arresting inflammation. Due to the unique parameters of the Neo’s energy, treatment is highly tolerable with minimal risk of adverse effects compared to traditional topical or device treatments for melasma. For patients who want an accelerated clearance of their condition, the Neo can be combined with a peel in a single treatment session. First, the Neo helps to break up epidermal and dermal pigment. Then, the peel may be applied to speed up the cellular turnover of the epidermis.
How long do the treatments take? Aerolase Neo melasma treatments typically take 15-20 minutes. Neo melasma treatments are safe, effective, and tolerable for all skin types and all forms of melasma. Treatment may be performed without any skin cooling, anesthetic, and even without the need to touch the skin.
Rosacea is a chronic disorder that is characterized by facial flushing and the gradual development of persistent facial redness and spider-like blood vessels. It is often punctuated by episodes of inflammatory papules (bumps), pustules (pimples), and swelling. Management for many people often includes avoidance of popular foods and alcohol as well as cosmetic camouflage, which can be expensive and time-consuming. The Aerolase Neo can help patients of all types and skin tones achieve clearance in as little as one treatment.
How does the Aerolase Neo treat Rosacea, Redness and Veins? The Aerolase Neo effectively addresses these conditions with deep-penetrating energy that suppresses the inflammation causing the redness. The high energy pulses also coagulate the unwanted veins and broken capillaries, which are then gradually cleared by the body’s natural immune response.
How long do treatments last? NeoSkin comprehensively addresses rosacea, redness, veins, and broken capillaries in a single, 20-25 minute treatment session.
Laser hair removal uses a combination of heat and energy to destroy the hair follicle without damaging the skin around it. The LightPod Neo laser offers patients a uniquely pain-free and gentle way to get rid of any unwanted hair. During laser hair removal, the hair must be in its growing phase to be successfully destroyed. To ensure that all hair is effectively removed, a series of treatments is required, every 3-4 weeks. Aerolase provides patients with psoriasis a safe, effective and tolerable treatment without the use of topical steroids or systemic medications. Compared to other light-based therapies, Aerolase 650 Microsecond Technology offers quicker treatments and faster rates of clearance. Aerolase 650 Microsecond Technology™ helps clear psoriasis by suppressing inflammation and coagulating the hypervasculature feeding plaque growth with deep-penetrating energy pulses.
Onychomycosis, or nail fungus, is an infection of the toenail in which the nail changes color, thickness and quality. In addition to an unhealthy appearance, it can be painful and cause difficulty walking. LightPod Neo procedures for nail fungus are proven to be a much safer and effective method as compared to oral medications or topical creams.
How do the treatments work? The powerful heat from the LightPod Neo laser penetrates the nail bed to eradicate the nail fungus.
When will patients notice results? Laser treatment for nail fungus is safe, quick and highly effective. Most patients achieve clearance of their infection with only one or two treatments. Results are not immediate, as it takes anywhere from 3-12 months for the new, non-infected nail to grow.
PFB (Pseudofolliculitis Barbae, i.e. ingrown hairs, razor bumps or beard bumps) is an irritating condition that is commonly caused by shaving. It often appears in patients of darker skin types, including tanned skin and skin types IV through VI. The laser selectively targets melanin in the underlying hair and follicle, as well as hyperpigmentation surrounding the lesion. Due to LightPod lasers’ unique 650-microsecond pulse duration being 50 to 500 times shorter than pulses durations typically used for hair removal by other laser technologies, the energy passes through the skin quickly and does not overheat the epidermal melanin to effectively treat the condition.
