Erasing Pigment with a 650-microsecond Laser
Now, with the unique 650-microsecond pulse technology from Aerolase, you can safely and effectively use the 1064nm laser modality to remove pigmented conditions including sun & age spots, melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Effective & safe for all skin types
Targets epidermal & dermal pigment
No skin cooling required
How Have We Advanced the Treatment of Pigmented Lesions?
Historically, Nd:YAG 1064nm lasers have not been used for the removal of hyperpigmented skin conditions such as sun & age spots, melasma, and PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation). This is because melanin absorption is relatively low with the 1064nm wavelength. But a new generation of 1064 laser technology, contained within the Neo laser from Aerolase, provides much more effective and rapid heating of hyperpigmentation, delivering treatment efficacy equivalent to laser modalities used previously such as Alexandrite or Diode. This is made possible by 650-microsecond pulse technology, which provides over 15,000 watts per pulse in a unique pulse duration of 650-microseconds.
Many practitioners are amazed that the Neo is so effective in breaking up hyperpigmentation, yet is also uniquely safe and gentle on darker skin types for applications like PFB and hair removal. That is because the fluences required for these applications are generally low due to the rich melanin concentration in the hair follicles in patients with skin of color, and the correspondingly high absorption of energy. Furthermore, the 650-microsecond pulse technology of the Neo enables the skin to cool itself between pulses, such that skin cooling during treatment is not even necessary.
