"Wow, my patients are so happy with this treatment because it treats numerous skin concerns like discoloration, acne, redness all in one," Jason Emer, Beverly Hills dermatologic surgeon. "This is the first/only device I've used that literally has no pain, patients see the results right away, and their skin glows immediately." 
"This is the only laser for achieving long-lasting results for active acne," said Dr. Bruce Katz, New York City dermatologist. "We can really target the sebaceous glands, no downtime."
Suneel Chilukuri, a dermatologist in Houston Texas described Aerolase, "the only device that has a long-term effect on active acne and most patients will see the effects within 1 to 2 days."
All of the doctors interviewed felt this device was a must have for any aesthetic or dermatology practice because of its large array of uses.

"It is a new technology which provides high efficacy like previous lasers, but the treatment is much more tolerable and requires no downtime," Dr. Kevin Pinski, Chicago Dermatologist, told AHB. "This laser is also effective for all skin tones and skin types. Additionally, multiple skin conditions are able to be treated in a single session which amplifies results and patient satisfaction."
"So portable, if you have multiple offices this can easily be transported from location to location," described Dr. Chilukuri.
"Big thing I think people should know is the versatility --- it treats so many things and it can be used on dark skin to do hair removal, pigmentation, acne and even tighten skin.  We ADD ON this treatment to almost every laser, facial, and peel - meaning we do this treatment right before the other treatment to get more results because this literally has no downtime and is synergistic with other treatments, even with fillers and botox, if you do this treatment before or after you limit bruising and swelling!  It's absolutely amazing and a device all practitioners should have," expressed Dr. Emer.
"We can treat acne patients and get great results without concern about pain or side effects. We are able to reduce active acne, redness, and irritation with NO downtime, unlike other modalities we have used in the past. Also, skin rejuvenation patients who need some collagen stimulation and skin tightening, as well as clearance of various pigmentation disorders, can now be treated with a single device," said Dr. Pinski.
Dr. Pinski summed it up, "this device enables me to treat patients with very little discomfort and great results, so they keep coming back!"
