Gentle Aesthetic Laser Treatment with LightPod Neo

Are aesthetic laser treatments right for me?

The LightPod Neo is proven to deliver excellent clinical results for all skin types.  Outcomes may vary depending upon your skin condition and various other factors.  Your laser practitioner will review your skin’s characteristics and medical history to determine the most appropriate and effective treatment for you.

What are the advantages of the LightPod Neo laser?

The LightPod Neo is a unique laser in the field of aesthetic medicine.  It delivers 1064nm energy to the skin using a safe, gentle energy pulse, which virtually eliminates pain while providing the best clinical results for even the darkest skin tones.

Is the treatment painful?

Most patients who have tried other lasers report that the Neo is much gentler and more pleasant. Patients experience a mild warming sensation on the skin.  A slight redness of the skin, if it occurs at all, will typically fade within a few hours.

Can the laser treat all parts of the body?

Absolutely! In addition to the Neo’s gentle pulse, the hand-piece does not come in contact with the skin and there are no gels or spays – the mess and unhygienic aspects of other lasers.  Both private areas of the body and areas difficult to access such as unwanted hair in ears and nostrils, can now be treated with the Neo!

What preparations should I make?

Ask your laser practitioner for guidance in preparing yourself for specific treatments.  While you may immediately resume your normal daily activities after each treatment, you should avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen.

What is Laser Genesis?

Some of the most popular cosmetic procedures offered by Skin & Sculpt Med Spa use the energy of lasers to rejuvenate the skin and restore natural beauty. There are many types of lasers that treat different conditions based on their source of energy and wavelength.

Laser Genesis is a near-infrared (NIR) Nd:YAG laser with a wavelength of 1064-nm. Studies have proven that NIR irradiation is efficient for skin rejuvenation due to its ability to provide long-lasting stimulation of elastin. It will also increase the amount of collagen, resulting in clinically improved skin tone and texture.

As the name implies, elastin is a highly elastic protein found within the connective tissue layer underneath the skin surface. This protein is what helps the skin to resume its shape after stretching or contracting. Along with elastin, you’ll find collagen in the connective tissue as well. Collagen is a structural protein that gives skin its strength and firmness. Over time, collagen and elastin are degraded, which represents one of the main mechanisms contributing to signs of aging. Therefore, Laser Genesis can minimize the appearance of lines and wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.
Additionally, the thermal energy of Laser Genesis targets the tiny vessels and capillaries that are the cause of persistent skin redness, such as with conditions like rosacea. By breaking down these vessels, blood that is trapped under the surface of the skin dissipates, which reduces overall redness.

Benefits of Laser Genesis

In addition to the clinically proven results with Laser Genesis, there are many other benefits that patients appreciate with this treatment. Let’s start with the convenience. Laser Genesis is a non-invasive treatment that typically only takes about 30 to 45 minutes. There is no need for anesthesia because it is a painless procedure that only causes a gentle warming sensation. Also, there is no downtime required with this laser. Thus, the Laser Genesis treatment is ideal for busy patients who want to see results but do not have the time to take off for recovery.

It’s typically recommended to receive between 3 to 6 Laser Genesis treatments, spaced about 4 weeks apart. It’s important to keep in mind that even though the course of treatment can be several months, you don’t have to deal with the disadvantages of downtime and recovery after each treatment. Skin & Sculpt Med Spa will be able to design a custom treatment plan for you based on your unique needs.

Lastly, Laser Genesis is designed for safe and effective treatment on all skin types and ethnicities, and can be safely used on all body parts (excluding the eye and surrounding area). This is in contrast to other lasers that come with the risk of discoloration if used on the wrong skin type.
