Guthrie Introduces New Laser, Expanding Treatment Options

February 15, 2019

Guthrie Aesthetics and Cosmetics is now offering a new laser for aesthetic laser treatments. The Aerolase Neo® 650 Microsecond laser is gentle and is effective on all skin tones regardless of ethnicity or tanning from the sun. 

Laser light from the Neo is attracted to a combination of melanin, hemoglobin and water within skin tissue. The laser energy passes through the epidermis and selectively targets specific tissue structures without affecting the surrounding skin. Topical anesthetic is not necessary as the patient will only experience a warming sensation.

According to Melissa Bohac, PA-C, Guthrie Aesthetics Cosmetics, this new treatment options has several benefits for patients. “The Aerolase Neo® is unique to this region and  

unlike traditional lasers, which don’t work on tanned or ethnic skin, this laser works on all skin types. Treatments are quicker because topical anesthetic isn’t used because it is less painful than traditional lasers,” said Bohac.

This laser treatment can be used for a broad range of common aesthetic skin treatments:

  • Acne
  • Skin rejuvenation & tightening
  • Melasma & hyperpigmentation
  • Rosacea & redness
  • Spider veins
  • Permanent hair reduction
  • Ingrown hairs (PFB)
  • Sun & age spots
  • Skin and scar tone & texture
