Aerolase Description
Aerolase® technologies deliver the highest levels of versatility, efficacy and value to clinicians so they may deliver the highest levels of comfort, safety and satisfaction to their clients.

LightPod Neo Description
The LightPod Neo is the safest and gentlest aesthetic laser available due to its unique Micropulse-1064 technology, which delivers energy to the skin 30-50 times faster than other lasers. This allows patients of all skin types to receive pain-free treatment without the use of messy cooling gels or anesthetics; solely using a beam of light to touch the skin.  We employ this laser to offer our customers the highest standards in treatment comfort, safety and efficacy.  The LightPod Neo is FDA cleared.

The LightPod Neo offers the gold standard for the following treatments:

Hair Removal
      url-5
Laser hair removal uses a combination of heat and energy to destroy the hair follicle without harming the skin around it.  The LightPod Neo laser offers patients a uniquely pain-free and gentle way to get rid of any unwanted hair.  Most patients who have been treated by other lasers say that being treated with the LightPod Neo is much gentler and more pleasant.  During laser hair removal, the hair must be in its growing phase in order to be successfully destroyed.  To ensure that all hair is effectively removed during the growing phase, you will receive a series of treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart.  This will successfully ensure maximum results.

PFB
url-6PFB (Pseudofolliculitis Barbae, i.e. ingrown hairs, razor bumps or beard bumps) is an irritating condition that is commonly caused by shaving. It often appears in patients of darker skin types, including tanned skin and skin types IV through VI. The laser selectively targets melanin in the underlying hair and follicle, as well as hyperpigmentation surrounding the lesion. Due to LightPod lasers’ unique 650-microsecond pulse duration being 50 to 500 times shorter than pulses durations typically used for hair removal by other laser technologies, the energy passes through the skin quickly and does not overheat the epidermal melanin to effectively treat the condition.

Pigmented Lesionsurl-2
Over time, your skin is affected by exposure to UV light, which can cause pigmentary changes on the surface of the skin.  The result can be sun or age spots as well as freckles.  Some skin is affected by pigmentary changes at birth, called nevi or birthmarks.  Regardless of the pigmentary condition, the LightPod Neo can safely and effectively treat your pigmented lesion, resulting in an even and uniform skin tone.

Veinsurl-4
The LightPod Neo is able to safely treat a broad range of visible blood vessels from angiomas and spider veins to large leg veins.  The 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 LightPod Neo can safely and effectively take care of any unwanted veins.

Rosacea & Rednessurl
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. Other 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 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.

Melasma
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.

Skin Tightening/Rejuvenationurl-1

The LightPod Neo offers a uniquely noninvasive skin tightening/rejuvenation treatment to stimulate healthy collagen and restore your skin’s youthful appearance.  This process will help firm healthy skin, get rid of any vasculature and spots as well as help fill in wrinkles without any patient downtime.   Only a beam of laser light touches the skin for the most pleasant treatment available.  Typically, several treatments spaced out over a 6-month period deliver remarkable results.

Acneimages
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 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.

Nail Fungus
Onychomycosis, or nail fungus, is an infection of the toenail in which the nail changes color, thickness and quality.  In addition of causing an unhealthy appearance, it can cause pain and difficulty walking.

Laser treatment for nail fungus is safe, quick and highly effective.  Most patients are able to be clear of their infection with only one or two treatments.  Laser procedures for nail fungus are proven to be a much safer and effective method as compared to oral medications or topical creams.   One of the key aspects of eradicating nail fungus is to achieve penetration of the laser energy into the nail bed.  This area needs significant heating to ensure the fungal material is destroyed, which requires a deep-heating and powerful laser.  The LightPod Neo offers patients the ideal laser for such treatment.  After the treatment, patients are able to resume their daily activities as normal.

Aerolase Description

Aerolase® technologies deliver the highest levels of versatility, efficacy and value to clinicians so they may deliver the highest levels of comfort, safety and satisfaction to their clients.

LightPod Era Description
The LightPod Era is a powerful yet gentle aesthetic laser to reverse the signs of aging and scarring.  Its 300 Microsecond 2940nm technology administers short-duration pulses allowing patients highly effective treatments with minimal discomfort and recovery time.  The high efficiency of the LightPod Era allows patients to complete a facial rejuvenation procedure in just one sitting as compared to multiple treatments with other technologies.  Only a beam of laser light touches the skin, which allows for the most hygienic and comfortable treatment available.  The LightPod Era is FDA cleared.

The LightPod Forte offers the gold standard for the following treatments:

Refresh

This treatment ranges from subablative treatment to a micropeel and aims to ablate the most superficial layer(s) of skin.  The subablative treatment leaves a healthy glow to the skin, which can be noticed immediately after treatment.  There is no downtime associated with this treatment and patients with skin types I-V are candidates. These treatments are perfect for enlarged pores and uneven skin tone and texture.


Reveal
This slightly more aggressive treatment aims to gently vaporize moderate sun damage and fine lines.  It is recommended that a topical anesthetic is applied before treatment.

Renewurl-3
This procedure is to address much more pronounced signs of aging, such as deep wrinkles and extensive sun damage.  While the most
aggressive treatment, this procedure is still much gentler than other ablative modalities thanks to the 300-microsecond pulse duration and carefully controlled depth of ablation, which will enable profound rejuvenation in just one treatment as compared with 4-8 fractional treatments.  Therefore, downtime occurs only once, instead of after each procedure.

Scars & Cutaneous Lesions
Scar tissue, cutaneous lesions or benign growths can be effectively treated with the LightPod Era, by gently removing the scar or lesion while leaving the surrounding skin untouched.  The affected area is ablated by removing a layer with each pulse until it is removed, generally in one to two treatments, leaving a uniform skin tone and texture.  With the Era’s unique ability to treat patients with only a beam of laser light touching the skin, all areas of the body are able to be treated comfortably.
