Chicago area dermatologist offers safe, gentle Aerolase technologies laser treatments
At the Aesthetic Dermatology and Laser Surgery center in Chicago, IL, we offer cutting edge laser treatments to address a wide range of cosmetic skin concerns, including acne, skin texture, rosacea and unwanted hair. Our highly skilled team and Board-certified dermatologist are trained in the safe use of these lasers to help patients achieve their personal goals. Aerolase is among the advanced laser technologies that we use in our office.
Aerolase is an innovated leader in the arena of laser treatment. The patented LightPod Neo systems provide patients with gentle, safe, and effective treatment options for a wide range of skin types. Some of the most common treatments addressed with LightPod, include:
- Sun/Age Spots
- Scar Revision
- Ingrown hairs
- Unwanted hair
- Spider veins
- Sagging skin
How it works:
The high powered, deep penetrating Neo laser uses Microsecond Technology to target specific issues in tissue structure while leaving healthy skin intact. The laser is attracted to a combination of melanin, hemoglobin, and water located in the skin tissue.
The LightPod Neo laser uses a safe, gentle energy pulse, which makes the treatment tolerable and safe for use on both light and dark skin tones.
Because the Neo has a gentle pulse and the handpiece does not directly touch the skin, it is safe for use on all areas of the body. Even difficult to reach areas such as unwanted hair in the nostrils can be addressed with the Neo system.
What to expect with treatment
The LightPod Neo system produces a mild warming sensation on the skin and may cause some redness in the hours following treatment. Most patients who have had other types of laser treatments report that the Neo is a much gentler and milder procedure.

The LightPod Era is Aerolase’s option for complete skin rejuvenation. It’s ideal for addressing common aging problems on the face, neck, chest, hands, as well as other areas of the body. The most common conditions addressed with the LightPod Era treatment include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne Scars
- Age Spots
- Sun Damage
- Enlarged pores
LightPod Era rejuvenates the skin in just a single treatment, revitalizing the outer layers of skin for a more youthful appearance.
Customized Resurfacing treatment
LightPod Era offers three different types of treatment that are tailored to your specific needs. They are Refresh, Reveal, and Renew.
With this treatment, we address the very top superficial layer of skin for refreshed skin tone. LightPod Era Refresh is perfect for treating large pores and uneven skin tone.
With this resurfacing treatment, we go a little deeper, revitalizing several layers of skin to reveal a more youthful glow. LightPod Era Reveal is perfect for addressing wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, and hyperpigmentation.
This is the deepest resurfacing treatment and results in completely rejuvenated skin tissue. While still gentle, LightPod Era Renew is perfect for addressing acne scarring, skin growths, and deep lines or folds.
Benefits of LightPod Era
LightPod Era is revolutionary, because it stimulates regrowth of healthy skin tissue with a single, comfortable treatment. With LightPod Era, there is almost no discomfort and downtime. Patients can expect one to two days of recovery with Refresh and Reveal procedures. The deeper Renew treatment may require up to five days of recovery. The procedure is performed with topical anesthetic and delivers astounding results after just one session.
The key to Aerolase’s LightPod Era treatment is the ability to carefully vaporize old skin cells in a safe, controlled manner, leading to regrowth of new skin cells and a boost in collagen production. This allows LightPod Era to reveal skin that is smoother, younger-looking, and more radiant than before.
Following LightPod Era treatment, patients may notice some redness that can stick around for up to two weeks. The skin in the treated area should be kept moist with ointment to aid in healing.
