Laser Skin Care Services
Hillbrook Family Medicine is pleased to provide gentle yet effective laser treatments on all skin types, with the LightPod Neo aesthetic and dermatology laser. This device employs breakthrough technology which provides exceptionally high power in a unique pulse duration allowing us to perform treatments without the anesthetics, skin cooling, pain or pigmentary risk of the previous generation of lasers.
The LightPod Neo is the safest and most gentle aesthetic laser available. Its unique Micropulse-1064 technology, delivers energy to the skin 30-50 times faster than other lasers. We have added this laser to provide our clients the highest standard in treatment, comfort, safety and results. The LightPod Neo is FDA approved.
Here are some of the conditions this laser can effectively treat:
Hair Removal - Laser hair removal destroys the hair follicle without harming the skin around it. The LightPod Neo laser offers patients a virtually pain-free way to get rid of unwanted hair. Most patients who have been treated by other lasers say that being treated with the LightPod Neo is a much gentler and more pleasant experience. Because the Neo is a faster laser it typically requires less treatment sessions than other types of lasers.
Pigmented Lesions - Over time, your skin is affected by exposure to UV light (sun damage), which can cause darkened spots on the skin. Some skin is affected by pigmentary changes at birth or people can develop moles. The LightPod Neo can safely and effectively treat your pigmented lesion, resulting in an even and uniform skin tone.
Vessels - The LightPod Neo is able to safely treat telangectasias (broken capillaries) and spider veins. The Neo delivers a pulse of laser energy, which will cause the blood within the vessel to coagulate and destroy the vessel. The vessel is then absorbed by your body over several weeks.
Skin Tightening/Rejuvenation - The LightPod Neo offers a unique, noninvasive, skin tightening/rejuvenation treatment that stimulates healthy collagen and restores your skin’s youthful appearance. This process helps firm skin, tighten pores, and diminish spots as well as fill in wrinkles without any downtime.
Psoriasis, Eczema and Seborrheic Dermatitis - The LightPod Neo treats inflammatory skin conditions by decreasing the inflammatory response, smoothes the skin texture, decreases the pigment and promotes healing the skin.
Acne - Acne is a common condition to both adolescents and adults and is caused by obstruction of the oil glands, a bacteria p. acnes, and by hormonal factors. Acne can lead to scarring if not treated properly. Until recently, patients could only be treated by topical or oral medications. Now acne treatments with the LightPod Neo laser can result in substantial improvement of acne and acne scars. The laser’s energy effectively destroys the p. acnes bacteria, while restoring collagen to damaged skin. The result is a significant clearance of active acne and acne scars.
Nail Fungus - Laser treatment for nail fungus is safe, quick and highly effective. Most patients are able to be clear of their infection with only a few treatments. Laser for nail fungus is proven to be a much safer and effective method compared to oral medications or topical creams. After the treatment patients are able to resume their normal daily activities.
Shaving Bumps - Psedofolliculitis Barbae or ingrown shave bumps are effectively treated by the LightPod Neo Laser. The laser’s energy destroys the hair follicle, smoothes the skin and decrease hyperpigmentation and inflammatory response.
Melasma (Cholasma) - A hyperpigmentation condition caused by hormones, genetics and sun exposure is effectively treated by the LightPod Neo.
Rosacea (Acne Rosacea) - The LightPod Neo can decrease redness, treat telergectasias (broken capillaries) and papules, tighten pores, and decrease sebum associated with this condition.
Scars - Scars are treated with the LightPod Neo Laser to diminish pigment, flatten the height, and increase collagen response.
