Technology has revolutionized the way that we do just about everything. It has allowed people to design products that are smaller than their predecessors and at the same time are more powerful. One example of this is the LightPod Neo. This is a powerful laser that is forcing many in the cosmetic medicine community to rethink the way they use laser technology.
How Does LightPod Neo Work?
The LightPod Neo works because it is attracted to the water, hemoglobin, and melanin found in your skin tissue. As the laser’s energy goes through the epidermis, it specifically targets certain tissue structures while leaving the surrounding skin untouched. This makes the laser versatile, efficient, and safe for people regardless of their skin type and skin color. This cannot be said of all other aesthetic laser treatments.
What Should I Expect during My Initial Consultation?
During the initial consultation, Dr. Gavrila is going to sit down with you and explain how the laser procedure works. They will get a feel for your expectations as a patient, as well as provide you with treatment information. During this initial consultation, you should feel free to ask any questions you have about the procedure as well as express what your skin care needs are.
Is LightPod Neo a Painful Procedure?
Many men and women have commented that the LightPod Neo is a lot gentler and a lot more pleasant than some of the other popular lasers treatments. You may experience a mild warming on your skin. Your skin may be temporarily red, but this redness will dissipate in just a few hours after treatment.
How Much Downtime Will I Have?
None. LightPod Neo is an outpatient procedure. The treatments are quick, and you are able to get back to your normal everyday activities quickly. We do recommend that you stay out of the sun in the weeks following your procedure. If you need to be in the sun, only do so after applying sunblock.
The treatment is very quick. It can range from several minutes for smaller areas up to one hour for treatment on larger areas. LightPod Neo has been proven to produce excellent results regardless of a person’s skin type. The outcome and the length of time you will see results will vary depending on your skin’s characteristics, your medical history, and the skin concern you are having corrected.
This is a very safe and hygienic procedure. We do not use choline or numbing agents. There is no risk of your skin getting burned, something that is a huge problem with other laser technologies.
Since the hand piece does not come into contact with your skin during the treatment, treatment can be delivered on any part of your body in a safe and noninvasive way.
