The aerolase lightpod laser is one of the most efficient, versatile, and gentle lasers because it can target certain tissue structures that cause acne, melasma, pigmentation, and other skin imperfections without affecting healthy skin. The aerolase lightpod laser primarily targets melanin, hemoglobin, as well as excess water within the skin tissues.

Aerolase laser technology is safe and gentle – it has even been certified by the FDA as a treatment for acne and doesn’t cause dryness or itchiness like other treatment options. It also guarantees quick results as most patients have testified seeing immediate results after their first treatment whereas most other therapies start resulting in improvements only after about 90 days.

The aerolase laser treatment is popular because it is a pain-free, drug-free solution to common skin problems and has no downtime. After your aerolase laser treatment you can resume your normal activities immediately after.

Aerolase Skin Treatments

The aerolase laser technology can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions and ailments including the following:

Acne

The aerolase laser can be conveniently used to treat and clear away severe acne. Acne is caused by the clogging of your facial pores by bacteria and excess oil produced by the skin. For many, over the counter and even some prescription strength acne medications are unable to fully clear the acne. Clearer skin with aerolase laser treatments is achieved when the laser light heats the affected area, thereby killing the bacteria deep in the pores, while simultaneously helping to shrink the sebaceous glands in a bid to reduce oil production and limit future outbreaks.

The number of treatment sessions varies from person to person depending on their skin type and severity of their acne. Many patients are able to see immediate improvements; however, it can typically take about 4 to 6 sessions to fully clear severe acne. Once cleared, you should be able to maintain your clear skin with traditional facial cleansing products, and the occasional aerolase retreatment every few months to ensure optimal results.

Rosacea and redness

Rosacea is a skin condition that is commonly mistaken for severe acne. It causes redness and pimple-looking bumps across the face, with a concentration on the cheeks, chin, and forehead. This condition cannot be cured; however, it can be controlled with selective treatment options. Appearance of rosacea can be worsened by lifestyle factors and can vary in severity from patient to patient.

Aerolase laser treatment has been used to help many of our patients effectively control and maintain the appearance of their rosacea. However, because the skin condition in incurable and can vary in severity prior to treatment, the individual results can also vary depending on the affected body surface. As a result, some patients see relief in just one treatment session whereas others may need a number of treatments to achieve their desired results.

Melasma and Pigmentation Spots

Melasma is a common skin condition that is more prevalent in women than in men, and typically affects women following a pregnancy or other hormonal change such as menopause or change in birth control regime. Melasma is a sensitivity to sun exposure that results in brown or grayish brown pigmentation of the skin. Melasma primarily is seen on the face and for some, fades away or lessens in visibility once hormones resume normal levels.

For those who do not see as much of a fade in the visibility of their melasma, aerolase laser treatments can be highly beneficial. Because the aerolase lightpod targets melanin, it is a beneficial treatment for pigmentation issues such as melasma. The number of treatments needed to treat melasma can vary depending on the size, density, and depth of the pigmentation. For mild melasma, patients typically only require one or two aerolase laser treatments. For others with deeper pigmentation coloring, it is not uncommon to need four or more treatments to clear the affected area.

Age spots, sun spots, and other forms of hyperpigmentation can also be easily and safely reduced through the use of aerolase laser treatments. The deeper the pigmentation in color and the larger the area affected, the more treatments will be needed to fully clear the area.

Skin Rejuvenation

Patients aged 30 to 55 are the best candidates for skin rejuvenation. At these ages are when signs of a life well lived begin to show – minor wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, and popped or visible blood vessels. This is also the time when skin elasticity is reduced.

Treatment for skin rejuvenation is conducted once a month over a six-month period. With the aerolase laser therapy, patients can start seeing improvements of aging signs visible on their face immediately following a single treatment.  Of course, the results will be more distinguished over time. For deeper wrinkles or more sever sun spots, continuing treatments or more frequent treatments may be recommended to further your results.

Scars and Veins

The aerolase laser therapy can also be used to repair scared tissue, although better results are seen with newer scars as there is a higher-level vascularity and melanin still present in the tissue. Over time these aspects lessen in the scar tissue and the scar becomes starkly white against the rest of the skin and harder to the touch than the surrounding tissue.  Collagen treatments are commonly used to reduce the visibility of scars but faster and more effective results can be found with aerolase laser treatment of the scarred area.

The aerolase laser therapy can also be used for the treatment of spider veins and varicose veins. Spider veins usually develop on the legs and are characterized by the spider webbing of visible red, blue, and purple veins. Varicose veins are large and raised veins that twist and turn visible on the skin. Treatment times from spider veins and varicose veins can take anywhere from 1-2 applications to four or more – depending on the size and severity of the veins.

Nail Fungus and Warts

The aerolase laser can also be used to treat nail fungus and warts. Typically, 3 aerolase laser treatment sessions over a duration of 3-4 weeks is ideal for the treatment of nail fungus. However, you can prevent the condition or treat reinfection through follow-up treatment sessions. As for warts, the number of treatments needed with depend on the size and depth of the root of the wart. In most instances, the size and appearance of a wart is lessened after the first treatment but in order to fully remove the wart, it could take sever aerolase laser applications. For many aerolase is a preferred treatment method for warts and nail fungus because it can take less time than traditional over the counter medications, requires no downtime, and doesn’t involve any messy creams.
