With the unique
MicroPulse-1064 technology from Aerolase, now you can
safely and effectively use the 1064nm laser modality to
remove pigmented conditions including sun & age spots,
melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Historically, Nd:YAG 1064nm lasers have not been used
for the removal of hyperpigmented skin conditions such
as sun & age spots, melasma and PIH (post-inflammatory
hyperpigmentation). This is because melanin absorption
is relatively low with the 1064nm wavelength. But a new
generation of 1064 laser technology, contained within
the LightPod Neo laser from Aerolase, provides much more
effective and rapid heating of hyperpigmentation,
delivering treatment efficacy equivalent to laser
modalities used previously such as Alexandrite or Diode.
This is made possible by MicroPulse-1064™ technology,
which provides over 15,000 watts per pulse in a unique
pulse duration of 0.65msec.
Many practitioners are amazed that the Neo is so
effective in breaking up hyperpigmentation, yet is also
uniquely safe and gentle on darker skin types for
applications like PFB and hair removal. That is because
the fluences required for these applications are
generally low due to the rich melanin concentration in
the hair follicles in patients with skin of color, and
the correspondingly high absorption of energy.
Furthermore the MicroPulse-1064™ technology of the Neo
enables the skin to cool itself between pulses, such
that skin cooling during treatment is not even
