Other Applications and Benefits 

Psoriasis Clearance

Aerolase 650 Microsecond Technology™ suppresses inflammation and coagulates the hypervasculature feeding plaque growth with deep-penetrating energy. Aerolase uniquely enables patients with psoriasis a safe, effective, and tolerable treatment for patients of all ages and skin types without the use of topical steroids or systemic medications. This means that there are no side-effects from traditional therapies. Plus, compared to other light-based therapies, Aerolase 650 Microsecond Technology offers quicker treatments and faster rates of clearance.

 

 
Nail Fungus

Onychomycosis, or nail fungus, is an infection of the toenail in which the nail changes color, thickness and quality.  In addition of causing an unhealthy appearance, it can cause pain and difficulty walking. 

 

Laser treatment for nail fungus is safe, quick and highly effective.  Most patients are able to be clear of their infection with only one or two treatments.  Laser procedures for nail fungus are proven to be a much safer and effective method as compared to oral medications or topical creams.   One of the key aspects of eradicating nail fungus is to achieve penetration of the laser energy into the nail bed.  This area needs significant heating to ensure the fungal material is destroyed, which requires a deep-heating and powerful laser.  The Aerolase Neo Elite offers patients the ideal laser for such treatment.  After the treatment, patients are able to resume their daily activities as normal.

 

Results are not immediate, as it takes anywhere from 3-12 months for the new, non-infected nail to grow.  It is recommended that patients follow this preventive care regiment to avoid reinfection:

 

  1. Apply an antifungal cream for 2 weeks following the procedure;

  2. Always spray inside the shoes at the end of the day with an antifungal spray and avoid wearing the shoes for 2 days or use Steri-Shoe ultraviolet shoe sanitizers;

  3. After 2 weeks, spray the feet or fingers with anti-fungal spray on an ongoing basis;

  4. Change the sheets the 1st night after each treatment;

  5. Cleanse the floor of the shower before next use with a cleanser that includes bleach;

  6. Cleanse all nail instruments with bleach before using them again;

  7. Throw out any nail polish previously used on the nails;

  8. Exercise caution in public areas like hotel rooms and public showers.

 
 
PFB

PFB (Pseudofolliculitis Barbae, i.e. ingrown hairs, razor bumps or beard bumps) is an irritating condition that is commonly caused by shaving. It often appears in patients of darker skin types, including tanned skin and skin types IV through VI. The laser selectively targets melanin in the underlying hair and follicle, as well as hyperpigmentation surrounding the lesion. Due to Aerolase lasers’ unique 650-microsecond pulse duration being 50 to 500 times shorter than pulses durations typically used for hair removal by other laser technologies, the energy passes through the skin quickly and does not overheat the epidermal melanin to effectively treat the condition.

Skin of Color

Patients of all skin types and tones are searching for the next best thing for their dermatologic and aesthetic needs. This is especially true for skin of color patients who are limited to specific treatments that at times give ineffective results. The Aerolase Neo 650 Microsecond Technology is revolutionized to provide patients of all ages and skin types the equal and fair opportunity to treat a skin condition with advanced technology.

The Aerolase Neo is an aesthetic medical laser that provides a premium patient experience unrivaled in dermatology and aesthetics. Uniquely gentle, the Neo offers complete skin rejuvenation in a safe, effective, and tolerable treatment for all skin types and tones. The 650-microsecond pulse eliminates discomfort during treatment and provides safe, highly efficacious results for even the darkest skin tones.


How does Aerolase work for skin of color?
The Neo is able to safely treat skin of color patients by using laser energy that can pass through the epidermis so quickly that it does not have time to overheat the epidermal melanocytes, thus avoiding the pigmentary risk associated with most laser systems. With Neo, not only is the treatment safer and much more pleasant than any other laser on the market, but it is also more efficacious, delivering the sought-after result with a lesser number of treatments thanks to its unique blend of high-powered yet gentle laser pulses.
