Spider Veins & Angiomas
The Aerolase® LightPod Neo® is able to safely treat a broad range of visible blood vessels from angiomas and spider veins to large leg veins. The LightPod Neo® delivers a pulse of laser energy, which will cause the blood within the vein to coagulate and destroy the vessel, which will absorbed by your body over several weeks to leave your skin looking rejuvenated and youthful. No matter what part of your body is affected, the Aerolase® LightPod Neo® can safely and effectively take care of any unwanted veins.
Melasma is a very common patchy brown, tan, or blue-gray facial skin discoloration, primarily seen on the upper cheeks, lip, forehead and chin of women 20-50 years of age. Uncontrolled sunlight exposure is considered the leading cause of melasma, especially in individuals with a genetic predisposition to this condition. Melasma is most common among pregnant women, called Chloasma, especially those of Latin and Asian descents. People with olive or darker skin, such as Hispanic, Asian, and Middle Eastern individuals, have higher incidences of melasma. The LightPod Neo can safely and effectively treat pigmented areas, resulting in an even and uniform skin tone. Other lasers can potentially cause skin bleaching.
Acne is a common condition across both youths and adults characterized by sebaceous glands being obstructed by the p. acnes bacteria. This causes blemishes on the skin and can lead to scarring if not treated properly. Until recently, patients could only be treated by topical or oral medications. Now, the Aerolase® LightPod Neo® laser can result in substantial improvement for the treatment of acne and acne scars. The laser’s energy effectively destroys the p. acne bacteria, while restoring collagen to damaged skin. The result is a significant clearance of active acne and visible acne scars.
Rosacea & Redness
Rosacea is a chronic disorder that is characterized by facial flushing and with time 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. Others diffuse redness including poikiloderma of civatte may be attributed by other factors such as exposure to UV rays and lifestyle, which can also be addressed by LightPod lasers. The laser light destroys visible blood vessels or reduces extensive redness. The Aerolase® LightPod Neo® laser emits pulses of light that target tiny blood vessels just under the skin. Heat from the laser’s energy builds in the vessels, causing them to disintegrate.

How many treatments will I need?
A series of treatments will be recommended depending on the condition of the skin. Treatments are spaced 1-4 weeks apart depending on aggressiveness of treatment plan.
What type of results will I see?
Acne patients will see a reduction in frequency and severity of breakouts, as well as decrease in redness/irritation in the skin.
When treating for skin rejuvenation, this treatment will help firm healthy skin, get rid of any vasculature and spots as well as help fill in wrinkles without any patient downtime.
Is there any downtime associated with this procedure?
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 the morning after treatment. If treating darker pigmented spots, spots may darken before fading or sloughing off.
What are the possible adverse effects?
1. Scarring is possible due to disruption of skin’s surface and/or abnormal healing. It is very important to follow all postoperative instructions carefully and report prior history of unfavorable healing prior to treatment. Notify our office if you have blistering, oozing, or pain after treatment.
2. Pigmentation- The treated area may heal with lighter or darker pigmentation. Protect yourself from any sun exposure for at least three months following treatment. Hyperpigmentation usually fades in three to six months. However, pigment change can be permanent.
3. Herpes Viral or Skin Infections – Notify your practitioner if you have history of Herpes viral or other skin infections. In rare cases skin infection can occur or the laser can reactive the Herpes Virus.
4. Permanent Hair Removal- This laser removes brown or black hair. Permanent hair removal in the treatment area is possible even if the patient was being treated for another indication. For example, if a man if having a facial treatment for acne his beard or mustache may be permanently removed.
5. Lack of Treatment Response – There is a possibility that the targeted hairs, veins or other treated areas will not respond to the treatment.
6. Eye Exposure – There is also the risk of harmful eye exposure to laser surgery. It is important that you KEEP YOUR EYES CLOSED and have protective eye wear at all times during the laser treatment.
