Chicago area dermatologist offers safe, gentle Aerolase technologies laser treatments
At the Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery center in Chicago, IL, we offer cutting edge laser treatments to address a wide range of cosmetic skin concerns, including acne, skin texture, rosacea and unwanted hair. Our highly skilled team and Board-certified dermatologist are trained in the safe use of these lasers to help patients achieve their personal goals. Aerolase is among the advanced laser technologies that we use in our office.
Aerolase is an innovated leader in the arena of laser treatment. The patented LightPod Neo systems provide patients with gentle, safe, and effective treatment options for a wide range of skin types. Some of the most common treatments addressed with LightPod, include:
How it works:
The high powered, deep penetrating Neo laser uses Microsecond Technology to target specific issues in tissue structure while leaving healthy skin intact. The laser is attracted to a combination of melanin, hemoglobin, and water located in the skin tissue.
The LightPod Neo laser uses a safe, gentle energy pulse, which makes the treatment tolerable and safe for use on both light and dark skin tones.
Because the Neo has a gentle pulse and the handpiece does not directly touch the skin, it is safe for use on all areas of the body. Even difficult to reach areas such as unwanted hair in the nostrils can be addressed with the Neo system.
What to expect with treatment
The LightPod Neo system produces a mild warming sensation on the skin and may cause some redness in the hours following treatment. Most patients who have had other types of laser treatments report that the Neo is a much gentler and milder procedure.
