As a multi-factorial condition that can involve epidermal melanin, dermal melanin, and a vascular component, melasma typically requires a complex treatment regimen to achieve clearance and prevent recurrence.
The Aerolase Neo helps patients to achieve clearance with a safe, effective, and tolerable treatment by addressing each of these factors. The Neo’s 650-microsecond laser energy is delivered into the dermis and epidermis to break up melanin deposits while shutting down vasculature and inflammation. Due to the unique parameters of the Neo’s energy, treatment is highly tolerable with minimal risk of adverse effects compared to traditional topical or device treatments for melasma.
Management of melasma can be challenging and, with topical agents, may require long-term treatment. The Neo, however, can help patients achieve clearance with fewer treatments and of all skin types. For patients who want an accelerated clearance of their condition, the Neo can be combined with a peel in a single treatment session.
Over time, your skin is affected by exposure to UV light, which can cause pigmentary changes on the surface of the skin. The result can be sun or age spots as well as freckles. Some skin is affected by pigmentary changes at birth, called nevi or birthmarks. Regardless of the pigmentary condition, the Aerolase Neo can safely and effectively treat your pigmented lesion, resulting in an even and uniform skin tone.
