Laser Skin Rejuvenation

As we age, our skin undergoes changes that can be frustrating and difficult to conceal with makeup, from fine lines and wrinkles to enlarged pores and age spots. Even in our youth, we can develop bothersome acne scars and early signs of aging as a result of sun damage and improper skin care. Fortunately, there are several ways to combat these blemishes and signs of aging to achieve flawless skin. One of the most effective methods is Aerolase Reverse.

What Is Aerolase® Reverse®?

Reverse is a revolutionary treatment by Aerolase that combines the age-reversing effects of two Nd:YAG laser devices: Neo Elite and Era Elite. Together, these lasers treat and prevent a range of skin concerns with minimal downtime, delivering smoother, younger-looking skin just days after a single treatment.

Neo Elite®

The Aerolase Neo Elite stimulates collagen and elastin fibers in the deeper layers of skin (dermis). This 650-microsecond laser has a 1064 nm wavelength that helps tighten lax skin and smooth wrinkles. After treatment, patients notice a firmer, more lifted appearance, especially in the cheek and eye areas.

Era Elite®

The Era Elite by Aerolase rejuvenates the outer skin layers (epidermis and papillary dermis) with 300-microsecond, 2940 nm-wavelength laser pulses. The Era Elite targets fine lines, pigmentation problems and other surface irregularities while shrinking large pores. The result is skin that appears more even, radiant and healthy.

Step-by-Step Process

What to Expect During Aerolase® Reverse® Treatment

At your appointment, we’ll begin by cleansing your skin in the treatment area and then placing protective goggles over your eyes. The Aerolase devices will then be passed over your skin to deliver the laser energies.

Step-by-Step Process

How Long Does Treatment Take?

The treatment process for Aerolase Reverse generally takes between 30 and 60 minutes when treating the face. Larger treatment areas may take up to 90 minutes.

Step-by-Step Process

Is Aerolase® Reverse® Painful?

Reverse offers a comfortable treatment process without any significant pain or discomfort.

Aerolase® Reverse® Recovery

You may experience mild skin redness and swelling for a few hours after treatment, and your skin may be sensitive for a few days. Our team will provide you with detailed instructions and may recommend a customized skincare regimen to promote optimal healing and results.

Will I Need Downtime After Aerolase® Reverse®?

While you can resume most of your usual activities after treatment, we typically recommend planning for a couple days of downtime from social activities, especially outdoor activities, due to the post-treatment restrictions listed below.

What Should I Avoid After Aerolase® Reverse® Treatment?

For the first 24 hours after treatment, avoid the following:

  • Strenuous exercise
  • Exposing your skin to excessive heat, such as sitting in saunas or hot tubs
  • Applying makeup to your skin, if possible

For the first week after your treatment, avoid the following:

  • Using potentially irritating or drying products like exfoliators, retinol, salicylic acid, glycolic acid and benzoyl peroxide
  • Direct or prolonged sun exposure (do apply sunscreen daily)

Frequently Asked Questions

How Many Reverse® Treatments Will I Need?

Some patients achieve ideal results with just one treatment. However, if you have more significant concerns, you may benefit from a series of three to six Reverse treatments.

Your Aerolase Reverse results will be noticeable within a week of your treatment. Most patients see more visibly radiant, smooth skin in just a few days.

Can I Combine My Reverse® Laser Treatment With Other Procedures?

Aerolase Reverse can be combined with injectable dermal fillers for enhanced skin-smoothing results. The most common fillers paired with Reverse laser treatment at The Lifestyle Center include the following:

Sculptra® Aesthetic

This injectable poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) formula stimulates collagen to lift and plump the skin. If you’re experiencing facial volume loss and wrinkles in your cheeks or around your mouth, Sculptra can smooth and plump these areas for up to two years.


This injectable filler is made with polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres that provide age-reversing structural support to your skin. It can smooth cellulite, acne scars and wrinkles for two to five years.


Restylane is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler that restores this moisture-retaining molecule to your skin. It can fill wrinkles and folds and plump the lips, with results that last up to 18 months.


This filler is made of smaller hyaluronic acid particles that fill fine lines, wrinkles and volume loss in the middle and lower face. Results last one to two years.
