What is Neo® Laser by Aerolase®?
Laser treatments have been a standard of cosmetic rejuvenation for several decades now. Their adaptability, convenience, and powerful results have made them a go-to when it comes to correcting cosmetic concerns. It’s no wonder laser skin resurfacing and fractional resurfacing, which both use laser technology to deliver treatments, still rank among the top ten non-surgical procedures performed in 2018, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Aerolase® lasers are simply the next evolution of laser treatment technology—shown best by its flagship product, the Neo® laser. The Lightpod laser device helps surgeons and patients achieve a higher level in their laser treatment results. From erasing cystic acne scars to even helping to kill nail fungus, Neo® by Aerolase® is one of the best ways to ensure a beautiful, radiant appearance from head to toe.
The appeal of Neo® lies in its adaptability and revolutionary ease of use. It can be used on nearly every skin type, regardless of color, age, or condition. Neo® can:
- Help treat acne and acne scars
- Clear melasma and hyperpigmentation
- Remove scars, warts, and angiomas
- Tighten loose skin
- Improve skin tone and clarity
- Remove hair from face or body
- Treat rosacea or psoriasis
- Clear up nail fungus
There are specific treatments designed to address certain cosmetic needs. NeoClear®, for example, is primarily designed as an acne treatment system, killing present acne and removing scars but also going under the surface to correct what causes the blemishes in the first place.
One of the secrets of the effectiveness of Neo® is its special 650 Microsecond Technology™, which uniquely attaches itself to the skin tissue. This technology allows the Neo® lasers to gently, yet powerfully, heat and penetrate the areas most in need of treatment. Neo® laser treatments are made possible thanks to the LightPodNeo®, a portable handheld device that can be adapted to treat specific cosmetic concerns. The length of the laser pulse means the skin is ultimately exposed to laser beams for less time than with similar treatments, reducing the risk of burns or other discomfort. Treatments can be completed in minutes, depending on the area.
There is little to no downtime after Neo® treatments. Because it is able to deliver high energy pulses in a shorter amount of time than other lasers, Neo® treatment typically results in little to no pain or discomfort. It is more effective and yet also more gentle than other lasers when it comes to heating target areas—so much so that many surgeons will combine it with other rejuvenating treatments for maximum effect. Some patients may experience minor discomfort, such as swelling or itching in the treated areas, which should subside within a day or two after treatment.
Patients are often awed by how quickly Neo® treatments work, with most treatments offering immediate, visible improvement. Typically, most patients will require repeated treatment sessions for the best outcome, but improvements are usually evident right from the first appointment. Some patients may only need one session to get beautiful skin that lasts for months or even years. Neo® laser treatments are a great long-term solution to keep skin clear from irritation, particularly with acne, and are incredibly effective at keeping rosacea and psoriasis flare-ups at bay.
