What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the word “laser”? You might picture something out of science fiction, but the value of laser technology in everyday medicine and aesthetic procedures is becoming an increasingly popular way. Specifically, laser skin treatment effectively treats a wide range of common complaints.
Renew Professional Facial Clinic uses the Lightpod Neo from Aerolase® – a top-of-the-line laser system that is extremely versatile for treating skincare woes, from acne to discoloration. If you’re looking for a long-term solution for your most stubborn skin problems, lasers just might be the most powerful solution.
What Is the Lightpod Neo?
The Lightpod Neo is one of the newest and most beneficial laser systems in the world. With this advanced technology, we can make a variety of troublesome skin conditions a thing of the past – all with no pain and a short recovery period. Best of all, the Lightpod Neo is minimally invasive and extremely safe, even for patients with darker skin tones.
The Lightpod Neo delivers bursts of energy 30 to 50 times faster than most laser systems on the market today. It precisely targets the conditions and areas of concern, without causing damage to the surrounding skin.
What Issues Does the Lightpod Neo Treat?
The Lightpod Neo is FDA-cleared for treating a variety of conditions. With this phenomenal tool, we can resolve the following complaints:
The powerful yet gentle laser destroys the bacteria that cause acne. It also reduces oiliness and inflammation. The Lightpod Neo has been proven successful even for patients whose acne failed to respond to traditional medications or therapies.
Aging skin produces less collagen and elastin – two proteins that are responsible for maintaining the resiliency of soft tissue. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to form wrinkles and fine lines as it loses its ability to recover from everyday movement and stretching. By stimulating the dermis with heat, lasers trigger the skin to begin producing more collagen, which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles while refining and tightening the surface.
Hyperpigmentation, Melasma, and Sun Damage
When your body produces too much or too little melanin, you may end up with freckles, sun spots, moles or patches of skin that appear lighter or darker than the rest of your skin. Often, these are because of excessive exposure to UV rays. Melasma is another category of hyperpigmentation – often hormonal in nature – that results in brown, irregular blemishes. By targeting the pigments that cause this type of discoloration, the Lightpod Neo can help patients achieve clear skin.
If you struggle with prominent redness on your nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead, you may have rosacea – a common skin condition characterized by pimples, red patches of skin, small broken capillaries and visibly inflamed blood vessels. The condition affects an estimated 14 million Americans and is often mistaken for acne or eczema. Laser treatments with the Lightpod Neo can reduce the appearance of rosacea and help create even skin tone and texture.
Though scars form naturally as part of your body’s healing process, their appearance can make some individuals feel self-conscious. If you have noticeable scars, particularly from acne or a similar skin condition, laser skin care may be an ideal option for you. Rather than removing the scar tissue, the Lightpod Neo kickstarts the production of collagen around the scar, which leads to a smoother, flatter and less noticeable appearance.
Spider veins are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of the skin. They often appear on the legs and face. Though harmless, they can be embarrassing and difficult to conceal. The Lightpod Neo is a safe and effective method for clearing both facial and leg veins. By targeting and eradicating the hemoglobin in the blood, the laser causes the veins to collapse and become reabsorbed into the body.
Warts may seem as if they pop up out of nowhere, but they’re caused by the human papillomavirus. When the virus invades the outer layer of skin, usually through a tiny scratch, it causes rapid growth of cells on the outer layer of skin, resulting in the formation of a wart. The Lightpod Neo treats warts by cutting off their blood supply, leading them to wither away.
