The dermatology and aesthetic medicine field is rapidly advancing, focusing on addressing common skin issues such as acne, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and the effects of aging. The introduction of the Neo Elite® by Aerolase marks a significant advancement, offering a comprehensive solution for these skin concerns with fewer downsides than traditional laser treatments.

What Sets Neo Elite Apart:

  • 650-Microsecond Technology: Features a unique pulse duration optimized for effective energy delivery to the skin, targeting melanin, hemoglobin, and water for optimal absorption.
  • Minimal Discomfort and Downtime: Precisely targets intended areas without excessive heat to surrounding tissues, ensuring comfortable treatments require minimal recovery time.
  • Effective Treatment Outcomes: Provides precision in treatment, leading to high efficacy rates suitable for diverse patients.

Efficacy, Comfort & Safety:

  • Traditional Q-switched lasers have high peak powers but may increase the risk of skin damage and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) in darker skin tones due to shorter pulse durations.
  • Long-pulsed lasers may help stimulate collagen production but can be painful and require significant downtime.
  • The Neo Elite, with enhanced energy delivery, offers a safer and gentler alternative suitable for all skin types, reducing the risk of PIH and providing rejuvenating outcomes with less discomfort and no downtime.

Clinical Efficacy in Treating Skin Conditions:

Acne: Targets inflammation and reduces sebum production, showing significant improvement in acne symptoms without topical and oral treatments’ side effects and resistance. 

Reduction in mild-to-severe acne lesion count after 5 treatments and 87% reduction 90-days post-treatment.3 

Melasma and Hyperpigmentation: Precise and  controlled energy delivery breaks down the vascular network of melasma lesion pigment deposits effectively, with studies showing considerable improvement and higher satisfaction rates. 

Melasma improvement after 2 treatments and without rebound.2 

Aging Skin: Stimulates collagen production without damaging the skin surface, demonstrating significant skin elasticity and appearance improvements. 

Physicians and patients reported improvements in acne scars, skin oiliness, skin tone and texture, and visible to excellent skin tightening.1

The Neo Elite by Aerolase represents a significant shift in medical aesthetics, offering a versatile, safe, and efficient treatment option for various skin conditions. Its 650-microsecond technology provides optimal energy delivery with minimal risk, setting a new standard in laser treatments and offering a compelling choice for practitioners and patients seeking effective skin health and rejuvenation solutions.
