Whether you want to eliminate sun damage and age spots, permanently remove hair, or turn back time by smoothing away wrinkles, you’ll find the results you desire with laser cosmetic treatments. The team at Peak Medical in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, can customize your treatment, even targeting multiple problems with one session, because they use the cutting-edge Aerolase LightPod Neo®. If you’re ready to revitalize your skin or remove unwanted hair, call the office or book an appointment online today.
The Aerolase LightPod Neo, or more simply, Neo, operates using advanced 650 Microsecond Technology™, which sends out a very fast pulse. This is a game-changer because it means your skin’s exposure to the laser is up to 50 times shorter compared with the pulse used in other lasers.
Due to the rapid pulse, your skin doesn’t get hot and you don’t experience pain or develop side effects. Most lasers must come into direct contact with your skin to ensure optimal treatment. With the Neo, the handpiece doesn’t need to touch your skin, yet the laser’s energy is precisely targeted and produces exceptional results.
Many lasers can eliminate unwanted hair using heat to destroy hair follicles. However, the Neo is set apart from other laser hair removal treatments because it’s pain-free.
Its unique fast pulse heats the follicle quickly and keeps the heat in the follicle. Since your skin and the tissues immediately surrounding the follicle stay cool, you don’t feel pain. Hair removal with the Neo is safe, permanent, and highly effective for all skin types and hair colors.
Although laser hair removal is one of the top treatments performed with the Neo, it also effectively diminishes or eliminates problems such as:
You can also have birthmarks removed with the Aerolase Neo.
The Neo can perform ablative treatment (removing layers of skin), nonablative treatment, or a combination of both during the same session to produce optimal results. Each treatment rejuvenates your skin, diminishes wrinkles, and removes pigmentation problems.
Nonablative treatments work using two mechanisms. Your provider can use the laser to heat structures deep beneath the skin, which boosts collagen production. This new, collagen-rich skin gradually replaces old skin that’s shed at the surface. As a result, your skin is stronger and tighter, and acne scars and wrinkles are smoothed away.
The nonablative laser can also target red, blue, and brown pigments found in age spots, visible veins, and sun damage. The laser heats the pigments to the temperature at which they break down. Over time, your body clears away the debris and the problem is permanently removed.
