The Neo can be used safely and effectively on absolutely any skin type, even tanned or darker skin tones, as well as pain-sensitive pediatric patients for conditions such as active acne. The Neo provides a uniquely gentle and pleasant experience for the patient due to the innovative 650-microsecond pulse technology and the lack of skin contact by the laser handpiece during treatment.

vivaMD Medical Spa & Weight Management is using a bimodal treatment, a novel procedure, called BFR™ (Bimodal Facial Restoration), involving a combination of the two primary treatment modes: non-ablative (the LightPod Neo 1064nm) and ablative (LightPod Era2940nm) energy. With the Neo, relatively low fluences are used to stimulate collagen genesis and skin tightening; immediately after, the LightPod Era is used to gently vaporize the outer epidermal layers for wrinkle reduction and texture improvement. Because both modalities are delivered independently to separately treat the dermis and epidermis, the practitioner has maximum flexibility to dial either modality up or down as needed. Treatment is very gentle and one or two sessions is typical, depending on the parameters used with each individual modality in each session.

Modern protocols for skin rejuvenation ideally include two modes of treatment. The first involves deep heating of tissue in the dermis for collagen stimulation and tightening, while the second involves the vaporization of the epidermal tissue for . By using the LightPod Neo and LightPod Era lasers in the same treatment session, it is now possible to independently treat each layer of the skin for maximum effect and minimum discomfort and downtime.
