Hyperpigmentation, including melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and dyschromia, is the leading skin concern among all patient populations. Melasma is a commonly acquired hyperpigmentation disorder frequently occurring in women, most commonly in Fitzpatrick skin types III-VI. While many treatment options are available for melasma, none have effectively addressed the condition’s symptoms and causative factors.
It is essential to understand that a comprehensive treatment plan is required for clearing melasma. Topicals, chemical peels and lasers in the microsecond, nanosecond and picosecond domains can address epidermal melanin. It is vital that when using light-based devices, no excess heat or inflammation occurs, as this can exacerbate the condition and cause further melanogenesis, which has been well-documented in picosecond and nanosecond lasers.
The Neo Elite by Aerolase uses a novel, short 650-microsecond pulse with high energy to address melasma. Since the Neo’s high energy coagulates melasma’s excess melanin and vasculature without creating heat in the surrounding tissue, it addresses melasma's symptoms and causative factors.
For melasma, it creates a unique treatment.
- Pigment: Neo Elite targets melanin in the dermis by safely bypassing epidermal melanin. Bypassing the epidermal pigment enables the laser energy to penetrate to greater depths, increasing efficacy and safety for all Fitzpatrick skin types.
- Vascular Components: Neo Elite targets hemoglobin to break down hyper-vasculature in melasma. Optical coherence tomography measurements revealed a 52% reduction in vessel diameter and a 22% reduction in vessel density after a single Neo Elite treatment.
- Skin Tone & Texture: Neo Elite targets water to superheat the dermal tissue and stimulate neocollagenases, enhancing overall skin tone and texture.
Neo Elite is the first and only device to combine the benefits of comprehensively addressing melasma. Learn more about the ultimate solution for melasma.
