Aerolase Laser Treatments Q & A
What is Aerolase?
Aerolase is a company that produces medical lasers designed to treat dermatological conditions and aesthetic concerns. The Aerolase LightPod Neo®, or more simply Neo, is the company’s premier laser. With the Neo, Dr. Pantazis can provide fully customized treatment that addresses multiple skin problems.
What features make the Aerolase Neo unique in its class?
The Neo’s advanced technology is designed to reach deep below your skin without so much as warming your outer skin. Aerolase developed Neo’s 650 Microsecond Technology™, which delivers such a fast pulse that your skin’s exposure to the laser is up to 50 times shorter than the pulse used in most lasers.
Thanks to the rapid pulse, your skin doesn’t get hot and you don’t experience any pain. In fact, you won’t need messy cooling gels or topical anesthetics during your Neo treatment.
Another unique feature of the Aerolase Neo is that the handpiece doesn’t need to touch your skin. At the same time, the technology is so advanced that the laser’s energy is precisely targeted.
How does the Aerolase Neo treat skin problems?
The Neo produces two types of therapeutic results:
Rejuvenating skin from within:
As the Neo’s energy heats tissues below the skin’s surface, it stimulates collagen production. Over time, old skin at the surface sheds and is replaced with collagen-rich skin. Your new stronger, tighter skin smooths away wrinkles and other imperfections.
Performing a photofacial:
The Neo uses a wavelength that’s absorbed by blue, red, and brown pigments, a treatment commonly referred to as a photofacial. During your treatment, the pigments are heated to the precise temperature at which they break down. Then your body naturally removes the waste and the pigmented area is permanently removed.
What cosmetic concerns are treated with the Aerolase Neo?
The Neo effectively diminishes or eliminates aesthetic problems such as:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun and age spots
- Spider veins
- Active acne
The Neo can also remove facial and body hair by targeting pigments in hair follicles.
What dermatologic conditions are treated with the Aerolase Neo?
The Aerolase Neo also offers effective treatment of numerous dermatologic conditions, including:
- Skin lesions
- Rosacea and facial redness
- Vascular lesions
- Decubitus ulcers
- Nail fungus
Nail fungus can be especially hard to treat, but research shows the Neo laser can heat skin under finger and toenails, which coagulates soft tissues invaded by the fungus.
