Psoriasis is a chronic disorder that causes thick red plaques with silvery scales on the skin and is typically characterized by having up and down periods where the symptoms heighten and lessen.  While psoriasis is not curable, it can be controlled very well with laser light so that you may have increased function and with cleared or decreased.  The LightPod Neo emits a powerful, yet gentle, beam of laser light to effectively penetrate the psoriasis plaque and induce the body’s immune response to help clear the plaque. While psoriasis may improve with treatment and even be gone for a number of months, follow-up sessions may be necessary to upkeep the results.


Description of Procedure:

The Aerolase Neo laser is a medical-grade laser system used for treating psoriasis. The procedure involves the application of focused laser energy to the affected areas of the skin. The laser targets specific wavelengths of light, which are absorbed by abnormal skin cells, leading to their destruction and promoting the healing process.


Aerolase Neo laser treatment is indicated for mild to moderate psoriasis cases that have not responded well to conventional treatments or for patients seeking alternative therapies. It is effective in managing psoriasis symptoms, reducing inflammation, and promoting skin clearance.


This treatment may not be suitable for individuals with certain conditions, such as:

  • Active skin infections in the treatment area

  • Open wounds or sores on the skin

  • History of skin cancer

  • Photosensitivity disorders

  • Pregnancy (in some cases)

Side Effects:

While Aerolase Neo laser treatment is generally safe, some potential side effects may include:

  • Mild redness or swelling in the treated area (usually temporary)

  • Tingling or discomfort during and after the procedure

  • Skin sensitivity to sunlight for a short period after treatment

The results of Aerolase Neo laser treatment for psoriasis can vary from person to person. Some patients may experience significant improvement in their psoriasis symptoms, including reduced redness, scaling, and itching.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is a chemical peel?
    A chemical peel is a cosmetic procedure performed by a licensed professional to improve the appearance of the skin on the face, neck, or hands. It involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the outer layers to exfoliate, revealing smoother, healthier skin underneath.
  • How does a chemical peel work?
    The chemical solution used in a peel causes controlled damage to the skin's outer layers. This stimulates the skin to shed dead cells and prompts the body to produce new collagen and elastin, leading to a rejuvenated and more youthful appearance.
  • What skin concerns can be addressed with chemical peels?
    Chemical peels can help improve various skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, uneven skin tone, pigmentation issues, and mild to moderate acne.
  • Are there different types of chemical peels?
    Yes, chemical peels come in various types and strengths, including superficial, medium, and deep peels. The type of peel used depends on the specific skin concerns being addressed and the desired level of exfoliation.
  • How long does a chemical peel procedure take?
    The duration of a chemical peel procedure can vary depending on the type and depth of the peel being performed. Typically, superficial peels take about 30 minutes, while medium to deep peels may take up to an hour or more.
  • Is a chemical peel painful?
    Most patients experience a mild burning or stinging sensation during the procedure, which subsides relatively quickly. Deeper peels may cause more discomfort, but pain management techniques can be used to minimize any discomfort.
  • How long is the recovery period after a chemical peel?
    The recovery time can vary depending on the depth of the peel. Superficial peels may have little to no downtime, with some redness and peeling that usually resolves within a few days. Medium to deep peels may require a week or more of recovery time, during which the skin may be red, swollen, and peeling.
  • Are there any side effects or risks associated with chemical peels?
    Like any cosmetic procedure, chemical peels carry some risks, such as redness, swelling, irritation, and increased sensitivity to the sun. In rare cases, there might be complications like scarring or infection, especially with deeper peels.
  • How many sessions of chemical peels are needed to see results?
    The number of sessions required depends on the individual's skin condition and the type of peel used. Some people may achieve desired results with a single peel, while others might need a series of peels spaced several weeks apart for optimal results.
  • Can anyone get a chemical peel?
    While chemical peels are generally safe for most skin types, not everyone is a suitable candidate. People with certain skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis, or recent sunburns, may need to avoid chemical peels. It's essential to consult with a qualified professional to determine if a chemical peel is right for you.
