Skin Rejuvenation & Tightening
Skin Rejuvenation & Tightening
The Aerolase NEO is a skin rejuvenation and tightening procedure that utilizes advanced laser technology. The Aerolase 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 brown 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 are recommended to deliver remarkable results.
The Aerolase NEO skin rejuvenation and tightening procedure uses a laser device to deliver gentle energy pulses to the skin. This stimulates collagen production, improves skin tone and texture, reduces wrinkles, and tightens the skin.
The procedure is commonly used to address various skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, uneven skin tone, acne scars, and general skin laxity.
Individuals with certain medical conditions, such as active infections, skin disorders, or a history of keloid scarring, may not be suitable candidates for the treatment. Pregnant or breastfeeding women should also avoid the procedure.
Potential side effects include temporary redness, mild swelling, and a sensation similar to a sunburn. These effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days.
What to Expect During Treatment:
During the procedure, you'll be given protective eyewear, and the laser hand piece will be moved over the treatment area. You may feel a warm sensation or a slight tingling, but discomfort is usually minimal.
The Aerolase NEO procedure is generally well-tolerated and doesn't require significant pain control. However, if you have concerns about discomfort, you can discuss options such as topical anesthetics with your healthcare provider.
Duration of Procedure:
The duration of each session depends on the size of the treatment area. Typically, a session can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour.
There is usually no downtime associated with the procedure. You can resume your regular activities immediately after the treatment. However, it's important to protect your skin from excessive sun exposure and follow post-treatment instructions.
Typical Number of Sessions:
The number of sessions needed varies depending on individual goals and the condition of the skin. Generally, multiple treatment sessions are recommended, typically spaced a few weeks apart.
Expected Treatment Results:
With a series of treatments, you can expect improved skin tone, reduced wrinkles, diminished age spots, and overall skin rejuvenation. Results are gradual and become more noticeable over time as collagen production increases.
After the procedure, it's important to keep your skin hydrated and protected from the sun. Your healthcare provider may recommend specific skincare products and advise you on how to care for your skin post-treatment.
The cost of Aerolase NEO skin rejuvenation and tightening treatments can vary depending on factors such as the size of the treatment area and the number of sessions required.
