The Aerolase LightPod Neo® is a state-of-the-art laser device suitable for all skin types, giving the skin the glow, tightening and rejuvation with NO downtime, which is great to be used before a red-carpet event. The Aerolase Neo’s patented 650 microsecond technology delivers high energy in short pulses to allow custom treatment without pains, burns or bruises.
Safe & Gentle – Aerolase laser technology is FDA cleared for acne treatment and has a proven safety record without the common side effects of other therapies such as itchy, dry or sensitive skin.
Quick Results – Many patients see results immediately after one treatment and further improvement with subsequent treatments. Other therapies can take up to 90 days to show improvement.
No Harmful Drugs – You avoid the negative side effects associated with many popular, systematic drug therapies.
No Downtime – You can immediately return to normal activities after treatment.
This device is uniquely gentle and versatile, expecially suitable for sensitive skin and colored skin, and is safely and effectively used for a broad range of common aesthetic skin treatments:
Skin rejuvenation for patients of all skin types aged between 30-65 showing signs of aging such as fine lines, minor wrinkles, sun damage and vessels as well as signs of reduced skin laxity. You will see results immediately after the treatment and the results will continue to become better over time. After the complete set of treatments (typically once a month for 8 months) patients can expect to see the results continue for the next six months, even if they do not continue with the treatment. This can vary depending on skin and severity of the condition, but generally 8 sessions are required to achieve a good result. After that, the patient may need maintenance every few months depending on their skin type.
With a pulse width of 650 microseconds, the Aerolase sits in the middle of the prior lasers used to treat acne, the nanosecond and millisecond lasers. This pulse width is better tolerated than other lasers, therefore more pulses and stacking can occur. Deeper and more broadly-based heating occurs with the Aerolase, making it more effective in acne eradication. The Aerolase laser treats acne by:
Heating up and shrinking the sebaceous glands leading to lower sebum output
Killing the acne bacteria
Reducing the redness associated with the acne
Improving early scarring
Reducing the inflammatory component of acne
Rosacea and redness tend to subside after the first or subsequent treatments. Therefore this is a treatment for those having sensitive and flushing skin. Regardless of the treatment response, recurrence is not uncommon and can be caused by a number of lifestyle factors. Rosacea is a chronic condition that can only be controlled rather than cured.
Newer scars respond better than older ones due to the increased amount of vascularity or melanin present initially. Aerolase helps to promote collagen remodeling, diminish melanin or vasculature within the scar, so that noticeable improvement can be seen after multiple treatment sessions.
Aerolase is used to treat angiomas and spider veins, and typically multiple sessions would be needed to reduce the visible capillaries. Aerolase can be also used to do laser hair removal, promote wound healing, and definitely one of the best treatments for those who wants a glow before attending a red carpet event, even on the same day!!
Some patients may not respond as well as others. Melasma lesions tend to darken after the first or subsequent treatments. Key factors in terms of treatment response are whether there is a sufficient melanin in the affected area, the depth of the lesion, and other factors. Regardless of the treatment response, recurrence is common and can be caused by factors such as sun exposure, genetic disposition and hormones. It is important to understand that melasma, like eczema and psoriasis, is a chronic condition that can be controlled rather than cured.
Generally 4 to 6 sessions are required for 80% clearance or greater, which is considered very good in aesthetic laser medicine. After that, an annual maintenance treatment is recommended. Patients can generally expect more than 75% to 80% clearance after 6 sessions and should plan on 1 or 2 annual follow up sessions for ideal maintenance.
Some patients will respond better than others and the number of treatments for each lesion may depend on the darkness and size of the lesion as well as the amount of laser energy used. After treatment the lesion should continue to darken and eventually slough off in 3-4 weeks. Some differences in pigmentation between the treated spot and surrounding tissue may persist after the lesion is fully or mostly removed.
Psoriasis lesions tend to subside after the first or subsequent treatments.. Regardless of the treatment response, recurrence is common and can be caused by a number of lifestyle factors. It is important to understand that psoriasis is a chronic condition that can only be controlled rather than cured.
Typically warts disappear completely after 1-2 treatments although in some cases more treatments may be necessary. Once the vasculature feeding the wart has been destroyed, it is likely that it will be gone permanently, but it is important to take precaution so that no other infections occur. Some people are very prone to developing warts and a regimental upkeep may need to be performed.
Results should be noticeable immediately after treatment, but results could take longer depending on the severity of the condition and if it is a chronic or acute condition. Wound healing is a slower process that can take a number of treatments to visibly see results and closure, which will also depend on the severity, depth, and size of the wound as well as the patient’s immune system’s ability to heal.
Some patients may be no longer be infected, their nail may not return to it’s natural color. Reinfection rate is high, especially in elderly patients and continuous foot care and monitoring their feet is the best regiment to deter reinfection. The laser light passes through the nail and skin to reach the nail bed and matrix. The laser light selectively targets the fungal infection to superheat the fungal structures in order to effectively eradicate them.
