Aerolase Lightpod Neo
Rejuvacare uses a the Aerolase Lightpod Neo 1064nm NdYag laser for many of our therapeutic and cosmetic procedures. This medical laser is very versatile and has unique characteristics making it more suitable for treatment of many conditions than other lasers. Specifically, the 1064nm wavelength has absorption by melanin, water, and hemoglobin.
For the patient the most important thing is that the laser is virtually painless. Unlike many other lasers, where getting burned is part of the treatment, the Lightpod Neo uses a very short pulse width (650 microseconds), which other 1064nm lasers cannot achieve. This results in less intense skin heating and therefore minimal pain. Yet it is capable of ultra-high power output of up to 15,000 watts. No anesthetics, gels, or even skin cooling is required. Therefore the Lightpod Neo can perform longer and more intense treatments, with faster results.
Because of its versatility the Lightpod Neo can be used for many conditions, both therapeutic and aesthetic. Among the medical conditions which can be effectively treated are:
- Nail fungus (onychomycosis)
- Decubitus ulcers
- Ingrown hairs
For aesthetic purposes the Lightpod Neo can:
- Remove hair
- Tighten skin and reduce wrinkles
- Detach skin tags
- Rejuvenate skin
- Clear spider veins and angiomas
- Take away pigmented lesions
The Lightpod Neo is safe, gentle and effective for all skin types.
