In the ever-evolving world of dermatology, the battle against skin aging and sun damage remains a paramount concern. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation accelerates the aging process, leaving its mark on our skin in the form of wrinkles, fine lines, skin discoloration, hyperpigmentation (dark spots), and a loss of skin elasticity. The Skin Cancer Foundation reports that over 90% of visible changes attributed to skin aging are due to sun exposure, making effective treatment options necessary in modern dermatological practice.1                 

Enter Reverse® by Aerolase, a groundbreaking approach to laser therapy that has revolutionized skin rejuvenation. Reverse by Aerolase specifically targets and reverses the effects of sun damage and aging, cementing its place in the crowded field of laser therapies. The state-of-the-art protocol offers dermatologists and medical professionals the capabilities and potential to deliver better results for their patients regardless of their skin type.  

Understanding UV Exposure & Its Effects On Skin   

  • UV radiation affects are extensive and accelerate skin aging, also known as photoaging  
  • UV directly impacts the skin’s cellular structure, including collagen production  
  • Results in visible signs of aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and uneven skin tone

Reverse® by Aerolase: Two-Step Process For Reducing & Eliminating Signs of Aging

  • Full-field, high fluence 1064nm delivered in a 650-microsecond pulse duration that deeply penetrates into the dermis
  • Collagen stimulation for tissue tightening and brightening that breaks down red or brown discoloration
  • Gentle enough to allow for ablation treatment next

  • Full-field 2940nm energy delivery in a 300-microsecond pulse duration
  • Unique energy avoids collateral thermal damage by gently ablating the skin’s epidermal layer
  • New, smooth, youthful tissue grows to replace ablated skin and the dermis and epidermis are replenished and strengthened.

This combination addresses the specific effects of UV exposure, making it practical for a wide range of skin types and tones. A clinical trial involving patients with signs of sun damage reported a noticeable reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation after treatment with Reverse.3 Furthermore, these devices are recognized for its high safety profile, making it suitable for sensitive skin types. By harnessing the power of laser technology, Reverse effectively winds back the clock on signs of aging and sun damage, providing patients with rejuvenated, healthier-looking skin. As research and technology evolve, devices like Reverse by Aerolase will play a pivotal role in aesthetic dermatology.
