Cosmetic treatments require a free consultation prior to treatment.
Aerolase laser technology is established as the new gold-standard for a broad range of medical and aesthetic applications. Our exceptionally high-power within a uniquely short pulse duration enhances clinical efficacy, versatility and safety for each listed application and more. The unique combination of high-power within a short pulse duration allows treatment to be performed without the use of anesthetics, skin cooling, high discomfort and risk of adverse effects commonly found with the previous generation of lasers.
Anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatments are one of the fastest growing segments of modern medical care – being an integral part of the powerful trend focusing on enhancing quality of life of an aging population. Many physicians now understand that helping their patients looking good and feeling good is a powerful tool to make them overall healthier and stronger. Next generation laser technology from Aerolase provides practitioners with highly efficacious, versatile, safe and easy to use tools to add aesthetic & rejuvenation treatments to their core practice. LightPod lasers are unique in the field of anti-aging for their many advantages – another being the gentle treatment allows for combination therapy in a single treatment including chemical peels.
The LightPod Neo 650-microsecond 1064nm pulsed laser is the foundation technology for any aesthetic & rejuvenation practice. Neo delivers completely non-invasive, comfortable treatments of over 30 skin conditions and can be used on all skin types including dark and tan skin without need of skin cooling during the treatment.
The LightPod Era 2940 nm laser is the ultimate skin rejuvenation tool allowing vaporization of skin imperfections by removing micron layers of skin in a safe and highly controlled manner. From non-invasive treatments that refresh the skin and make it glow to eradicating deep smoke wrinkles or acne scars, Era allows for profound skin rejuvenation in just one treatment with little to no discomfort or downtime for the patient.
Used together, Neo and Era offer practitioners the Complete Aesthetic Solution with capabilities to address all aesthetic skin applications from the surface of the skin into the deep dermis.
How many treatment sessions are required?
This can vary depending on skin and severity of the condition, but generally 6 sessions are required to achieve a good result. After that, the patient may need maintenance every few months depending on their skin type.
Do I need to use topical anesthesia? What about gels?
No. Anesthetics and cooling gels are not needed with LightPod lasers, because 650-microsecond technology makes it uniquely pain-free. However, some buildup of heat will be experienced and slight pinching may be felt while using the 2mm spot size. This unique benefit saves time, cost and mess by eliminating gels and sprays required by other lasers that cool the skin during treatment. Also, this can increase revenues through a higher rate of client retention – with other lasers and IPL devices, clients often abandon treatment after just one or two sessions due to intolerable pain.
Is it painful?
No, there is just a mild, very tolerable sensation of heat. This is one of the key technical breakthroughs of Aerolase technology! LightPod lasers have set a new standard for virtually pain-free treatment, even on darker skin types, thanks to 650-microsecond technology.
When can I expect to see an improvement in my condition?
Improvement may be seen anywhere immediately after the treatment to a few weeks after the first treatment. Typically a session every month for 6 months is required. Patients should notice considerable results during the entire course of treatments and for another 6 months after the treatment due to the constant growth of new collagen and elastin. It is important to realize that there is no way to stop the skin’s aging process, so further treatment may be required in the future.
Is it permanent, or will my spots and laxity come back?
While your skin will appear firmer, more full and both red and brown spots will diminish, the skin will continue to age so maintenance treatments may be required in the future. To reduce the signs of aging it is important to wear sunscreen, which will slow any increase of wrinkles and sun damage.
Can it be used on dark skin?
Actually, LightPod lasers are the safest laser in the industry for darker skin types or tanned skin. This is because of650-microsecond technology, which essentially eliminates treatment pain while minimizing the chances of hyper and/ or hypo-pigmentation. Patients with skin types IV-VI should not be treated with on the face with high power using the 2mm lens as the risk of hyper and/or hypopigmentation is increased.
