Aesthera PPX ACNE Treatment
Struggling with acne as an adult can be immensely frustrating. While there is no specific cure for acne, it often resolves on its own after patients receive the right combination of facial and dermatology treatments. At Nova SurgiCare, we are proud to offer a new acne treatment method called Aesthera PPx. Aesthera uses a unique laser system to effectively treat mild to inflammatory acne.
If you are tired of dealing with acne breakouts, please schedule a consultation with us today. Dr. Hamrah can perform a thorough skin analysis to evaluate the nature of your skin problems and determine whether or not you are a good candidate for Aesthera PPx acne treatment.
Benefits of Aesthera PPx Acne Treatment
Based on photopneumatic technology, the Aesthera PPx system is designed to not only treat acne, but also to improve the appearance of skin discoloration.
The most significant benefits of the Aesthera PPx Acne Treatment system are:
- Quick and easy procedure
- No surgery or incisions
- No pre-treatment
- Little to no recovery time
- During clinical trials, over 88% of acne was cleared in patients
- Visible improvement within 48 hours
Aesthera PPx can also be used as a laser hair removal device.
How Does Aesthera PPx Work?
Unlike other types of acne treatment, Aesthera PPx uses targeted broadband laser energy that penetrates deep into your skin, making it up to five times more efficient at identifying acne pustules and breakout sources. Your skin does not have to be prepared with any kind of ointment or numbing cream before treatment.
During the treatment process, small pieces of your skin will be pulled up into the device, allowing light energy to pass through the problematic areas. The laser energy breaks up cells that have been damaged by acne and accelerates your skin’s healing process. It only takes around ten minutes to treat your entire face. Many of our patients describe this as a relaxing, soothing experience.
Aesthera PPx was FDA-approved for acne treatment in 2006. It is capable of treating a wide range of acne problems, including:
- Mild to moderate acne
- Pustular acne
- Inflammatory acne (acne vulgaris)
- Comedonal acne
- Cystic acne
