Aerolase has developed and introduced a new generation of lasers that are ideal for Foot & Ankle applications. Our 1064nm (Nd:YAG) lasers, the LightPod Forte (Podiatry) and LightPod Neo (Podiatry + Aesthetics), deliver higher clinical efficacy and shorter treatment times than any other lasers for these applications – yet the treatment is much more tolerable than with other brands of lasers, due to our unique and gentle pulse duration.
Brief Practitioner Testimonials
I have been using the LightPod Forte now for nearly a year. This laser delivers Nd:YAG 1064nm energy without any direct skin contact, and there is no need for expensive reusable pieces. The Forte also provides more power to the tissue with a wider range of fluences. I have treated many cases of onychomycosis and have seen >90% of cases exhibiting outgrowth of healthy nail. Clearance of warts is also around 90%.

The LightPod Forte has about a 90% success rate, so the efficacy is very good. Each treatment lasts between 5 and 15 minutes, so patients are in and out of the office quickly. There is very little treatment discomfort and no side effects. The machine is highly compact and portable, which is good because I have 3 offices and we also do house calls.

The LightPod Neo Nd:YAG laser is a device, with a wavelength (1064 nm), that will deliver energy through the nail plate and into the nail bed, resulting in superheating of the fungal material. Because the hand piece does not contact the skin or nails and does not require the use of any cooling devices, it is a clean, simple, and sanitary procedure. In the study that I published, post-treatment culture was negative in 87.5% of patients.
