Patient Stories

Acne can be annoying and depressing to those that have it. Sometimes, cosmetic treatments like lasers, peels and microneedling are needed along with skin care and oral medications. For this patient, he wanted a quicker improvement without taking oral medications. Along with peels and skin care, the Aerolase LightPod Neo, a microsecond YAG laser, gave him significant improvement.

The Aerolase LightPod Neo is an innovative device that allows for dramatic improvements because it heats below the skin’s surface, decreasing redness, inflammation and pigmentation with minimal downtime. There is no burning or scabbing, just slight heating, which immediately decreases oil and calms the skin. Dr. Emer’s innovative and advanced approach of combining Aerolase LightPod Neo with other lasers such as Clear and Brilliant or radiofrequency devices like Fractora or Venus Viva, gives more improvement in a single session than with either device alone.

As a younger patient and athlete, Mile’s was sick of having bad acne, which always worsened with extreme physical exercise. Some topical treatments like vitamin A and glycolic really irritated his skin, so Dr. Emer decided to add weekly laser treatments to calm the inflammation and cysts. See his dramatic improvement in just 4 weekly sessions. His long-term maintenance plan is to continue monthly facials, peels, and skin care along with laser treatments to further improve his acne, scars and skin’s overall texture, color and tone.
