The skin is a delicate tissue that is very susceptible to damage. Whether it is caused by the natural aging process, excessive exposure to the sun or the pollutants in the breathing air, everyone is bound to experience some damage to their skin at some point in their life. It may be a fact of life, but that does not make blemishes any less troubling. While there are dozens of cosmetic procedures that claim to revitalize and rejuvenate your skin, they all do not provide the same results. If you want to fix a variety of skin issues without enduring any serious risks, then your only option is to consider getting laser treatments with LightPod Neo.
What Is LightPod Neo?
LightPod Neo is a new laser skin rejuvenation treatment created by Aerolase. A trained medical professional uses the special device to deliver 1064nm laser energy to help repair your common skin problems. This laser light passes through the top layer of your skin without causing any damage. It then gets absorbed by the water, hemoglobin, and melanin deep in the skin. Once this laser light is absorbed, it helps stimulate the production of collagen in the skin while also working to correct any pigmentation and vascular issues. Laser treatments have never been so easy.
The great thing about LightPod Neo laser treatments is that they can help almost everyone who is unhappy with the appearance of their skin. The versatility of the laser allows this procedure to treat more than 30 different skin conditions. Some of the most common issues that can be resolved with this revolutionary treatment are acne, age spots, loose skin, rosacea, deep wrinkles and spider veins. No other laser skin rejuvenation procedure can effectively treat so many problems. The 1064nm laser energy can also be used on both light and dark skin tones. You will only be disqualified as a patient if you are more than six months pregnant or have an open skin sore.
What to Expect during the LightPod Neo Treatment
You will be asked to get comfortably seated in the exam room shortly after arriving at our office for your scheduled appointment. Once you are ready, the trained medical professional will use the LightPod Neo device to deliver laser light energy to the entire treatment area. If you are getting your face treated, then all of the skin on the face will be exposed to the laser energy. This helps the body produce a lot of excess collagen. After the entire treatment area has been hit with the laser, the provider will focus the laser on your problematic skin issues.
The length of your appointment will be determined by your individual case, but most people can be treated in about 20 to 45 minutes. You will feel absolutely no discomfort or pain during the appointment. The laser is so gentle that no anesthetic gel needs to be applied to the skin at the start of the procedure. This is something that is simply not possible with almost every other laser skin rejuvenation procedure.
What to Expect after Your Treatment Is Finished
There is absolutely no downtime associated with the LightPod Neo laser skin rejuvenation procedure. You will be able to drive yourself home and immediately return to your normal duties as soon as the appointment is over. You can expect to have some mild redness on the areas of the skin that were treated with the laser. This redness should disappear after a few hours. You are free to use makeup to help hide the redness if you are self-conscious. It is recommended to avoid excessively hot showers and direct sunlight for 24 hours after your procedure. You will also want to avoid using any skin creams that contain retinoids during this time.
While you can expect to receive amazing results from LightPod Neo, it will not happen overnight. You will have to return for additional treatment sessions to get your desired results. The length of your treatment plan is determined by the problem you are correcting. Minor issues like acne can be fixed in about two or three sessions. Severe skin issues will require roughly five or six sessions. These treatment sessions must be performed two to three weeks apart.
Everyone’s skin responds differently to the laser treatments, so it is impossible to predict when your results will be revealed. Some patients see some noticeable improvement immediately after their first treatment session. It is far more likely to see drastic results after the third or fourth appointment. Since the skin continues to age every day, it is recommended to undergo two maintenance laser treatments every year to keep your amazing results the rest of your life.
