Patients of all skin types and tones are searching for the next best thing for their dermatologic and aesthetic needs. This is especially true for skin of color patients who are limited to specific treatments that at times give ineffective results. The Aerolase Neo 650 Microsecond Technology is revolutionized to provide patients of all ages and skin types the equal and fair opportunity to treat a skin condition with advanced technology.
The Aerolase Neo is an aesthetic medical laser that provides a premium patient experience unrivaled in dermatology and aesthetics. Uniquely gentle, the Neo offers complete skin rejuvenation in a safe, effective, and tolerable treatment for all skin types and tones. The 650-microsecond pulse eliminates discomfort during treatment and provides safe, highly efficacious results for even the darkest skin tones.
How does Aerolase work for skin of color?
The Neo is able to safely treat skin of color patients by using laser energy that can pass through the epidermis so quickly that it does not have time to overheat the epidermal melanocytes, thus avoiding the pigmentary risk associated with most laser systems. With Neo, not only is the treatment safer and much more pleasant than any other laser on the market, but it is also more efficacious, delivering the sought-after result with a lesser number of treatments thanks to its unique blend of high-powered yet gentle laser pulses.
People with skin of color are of diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, and include African Americans, Asians, Hispanics or Latinos, Native Indians and Pacific Islanders primarily, as well as individuals from these groups who have intermarried.
The Skin of Color Society was established in 2004 by Susan C. Taylor, M.D. Its purpose is to promote awareness of, and excellence within, skin of color dermatology. The Society is committed to the education of health care providers and the general public on dermatologic health issues related to skin of color. The Society supports research and other activities that impact individuals with skin of color. Partnerships with dermatologists from the national and international communities, professional medical organizations, and community, corporate and industry groups will ensure our success in serving all individuals with skin of color.
