Aerolase Laser Q & A

What is the Aerolase laser?

The Aerolase laser is a premium laser tool that addresses medical and cosmetic dermatological concerns. It’s the only laser to use 650-microsecond pulse duration laser energy, which is a much shorter pulse duration than any other laser.

The laser energy passes through the skin to selectively target melanin (skin and hair pigment), hemoglobin (the molecule that gives blood its red color), and water in the skin to improve the problem being treated. 

It also stimulates collagen production, which is a structural protein that keeps your skin strong and resilient. 

The laser passes through the skin so quickly that it doesn’t overheat the skin, so there’s very little discomfort. 

Polley Clinic of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery PA performs Aerolase laser treatments without skin cooling, anesthetic, or touching the skin. 

What can the Aerolase laser treat?

With increasing prescription costs, the Aerolase laser is an excellent, cost-effective option for patients that can’t or don’t want to take prescription medications. Or, for patients that are sensitive to medications or want to avoid side effects. 

Polley Clinic of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery PA uses the Aerolase laser to treat many common skin issues that may affect various areas of the body. 

Conditions that benefit from the Aerolase laser include:

  • Acne
  • Psoriasis
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Rosacea
  • Poikiloderma of Civatte 
  • Beard bumps
  • Scars

The Aerolase laser is also used for skin rejuvenation to reduce the visible signs of aging. The innovative laser tool improves skin tone and texture and removes redness, hyperpigmentation, and spider veins, leaving you with clearer, healthier-looking skin. 

Polley Clinic of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery PA may also recommend the Aerolase laser to remove unwanted hair. It’s much gentler and better tolerated than other laser hair removal systems. 

What happens during Aerolase laser treatment?

The specifics of your Aerolase laser treatment at Polley Clinic of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery PA depend on your skin care needs.

In most cases, your Aerolase laser treatment takes less than an hour, with most treatments completed within 15 to 20 minutes. The Aerolase laser tool doesn’t touch your skin, so there’s no need for anesthetic prior to your session.

Aerolase is unique because there are no side effects, treatment is well-tolerated, and you can see improvements after a single session. However, your board-certified dermatologist at Polley Clinic of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery PA may recommend more than one session to get the most dramatic results.
