NEOSKIN BY AEROLASE®
NeoSkin by Aerolase® Rosacea, Redness, and Veins
NeoSkin comprehensively addresses rosacea, redness, veins, and broken capillaries in a single, 20-25 minute treatment session. A common condition with skin aging is the appearance of redness and formation of veins and broken capillaries in the skin. Rosacea is a chronic disorder that is characterized by facial flushing and with time the gradual development of persistent facial redness and spider-like blood vessels. It is often punctuated by episodes of inflammatory papules (bumps), pustules (pimples), and swelling. Management for many people often includes avoidance of popular foods and alcohol as well as cosmetic camouflage, which can be expensive and time-consuming. Other diffuse redness including poikiloderma of civatte may be attributed by other factors such as exposure to UV rays and lifestyle, which can also be addressed by the NeoSkin treatment. The Aerolase Neo effectively addresses these conditions with deep-penetrating energy that suppresses the inflammation causing the redness. It also coagulates the unwanted veins and broken capillaries, which are then gradually cleared by the body’s natural immune response.

WHAT CAUSES ROSACEA?
Rosacea is a chronic disorder that is characterized by facial flushing and with time the gradual development of persistent facial redness and spider-like blood vessels. It is often punctuated by episodes of inflammatory papules (bumps), pustules (pimples), and swelling. Management for many people often includes avoidance of popular foods and alcohol as well as cosmetic camouflage, which can be expensive and time-consuming.
IS IT PERMANENT, OR WILL ROSACEA COME BACK?
Rosacea is typically characterized by having up and down periods where the symptoms heighten and lessen. While rosacea is not curable, it can be controlled with laser light so that the redness will decrease. While rosacea may improve with treatment and even be gone for a number of months, it may never completely
IS IT PAINFUL?
There is a mild sensation of heat that is very tolerable. This is one of the key technical breakthroughs of Aerolase technology! The Neo Elite has set a new standard for virtually pain-free treatment, even on darker skin types, thanks to MicroPulse-1064 technology. This unique benefit saves time, cost and mess by eliminating gels and sprays required by other lasers that cool the skin during treatment.
HOW DOES LASER THERAPY WORK FOR ROSACEA?
The 1064nm laser energy is absorbed in hemoglobin to break down diffused redness, and at higher fluences will also coagulate capillaries or spider veins that may supply blood into affected areas.
CAN IT BE USED ON DARK SKIN?
Actually, the Neo Elite is the safest laser in the industry for darker skin types or tanned skin. This is because of MicroPulse-1064 technology, which essentially eliminates treatment pain while minimizing the chances of hyper- and/ or hypo-pigmentation.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER TREATMENT?
Immediately after treatment, there may be some transient erythema or purpura, in or adjacent to the treated area, which is more common in older patients or those who are taking blood-thinning medications and should resolve within a few days. The redness and vasculature may not immediately disappear and may take up to several months to fully improve and clear. Typically, maintenance sessions will need to be scheduled for continued improvement of flare-ups.
It is possible that some vascular lesions may scab so it is important to always keep the area moist as to reduce the risk of scarring.
