PTF Acne Treatment -Treating pimples, preventing scars

How is the PTF machine different from other intense pulsed light devices?

PTF (Photo Therapy Flash) machine has a patented technology upgraded from the IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) offering greater versatility higher accuracy and efficacy compared to old technology models. The large PTF treatment spot 10cm2, containing dual parallel Xenon flash lamps offers a quick treatment, consistent flash strength to the entire treatment area, more comfort and safer treatments compared to the old IPL machines where the handpiece contained only one Xenon lamp.  Our machine has Medical CE certificate!

Treatment principle: PTF technology uses selective photothermolysis.

How does the PTF acne treatment work?

The specially selected light spectrum 400-1200nm selectively acts on the focal area gets absorbed by the cromophore, and targets and destroys the skin bacteria responsible for acne to help prevent future breakouts from occurring on faces, chests and backs.

PTF technology delivers just the right amount of light in the right spot size for your treatment needs. This treatment is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that is capable of effectively resolving acne and starting to eliminate constant facial inflammation. This can be seen right after 3 hours of treatment, the skin is less inflamed, and beginning to heal. PTF treatment is versatile, offering successful reduction of pimples on various body parts. Individual results may vary. Our staff is happy to provide you information about topical creams that may further help with problematic skin preventing scar formation. Our experienced staff can also introduce you to makeup techniques and the use of camouflage makeup.

How is acne formed?

Acne is a disorder of the sebaceous glands of the skin, where there is overproduction of sebum, while hyperkeratinization of skin is present. The Anaerobic situation creates the perfect environment for the P. Acnes bacterium to reproduce colonies and release porphyrin. This together leads to plugged pores, inflammation, bacterial infection and possibly papules, pustules, and permanent scarring of the skin. Unsightly acne may have high impact on the quality of life. The best solution is to clear the acne as soon as possible to eliminate risk of potential scarring.

How many treatments are needed to see promising results?

Since every patient is different an initial consultation is necessary to determine treatment goals and to set up a treatment plan. We customize the treatment course to your individual needs. The number of treatments depends on the severity of the condition and the sensitivity of the skin. Usually a series of 10 treatments over a 5 week period is all it takes to get back on the road to dramatically clearer, smoother, acne-free skin.

Depending on the severity of the condition PTF treatment can be a stand alone treatment or combined with diamond -microdermabrasion and or chemical peels for an even faster result. Our experienced staff will introduce you to the Solar Energy, Lipacid, Derma Clear and Solanie product line creams that further help with problematic skin by a boost of regenerating- nourishing and soothing active ingredients.

How long does the treatment take?

Each treatment is simple and takes just 10-20 minutes and there are no adverse side effects, discomfort, patient downtime nor antibiotics involved.

PTF acne clearance treatment is nothing but beneficial:

  • Clearer skin with each visit.
  • A comfortable, well-tolerated procedure.
  • Eliminates or reduces the need for oral acne medication.
  • Safe and reliable: Non-invasive procedure, safe acne clearance with no pain or downtime.
  • Visible: Results are visible shortly after starting treatment, with clearance reaching 70% - 90% on average.
  • Quick treatment time: Just 10-20 minutes for a full facial treatment.

I have acne on my chest and back. Is this treatment right for me?

Treating large surface acne with topicals can be difficult, for example on the back and chest.

PTF acne treatment can deliver better aesthetic results, especially on inflammatory acne, without the side effects associated with topical and oral acne medications. Topical creams and oral medications can be effective treatments for acne outbreaks, but they can be expensive and can dry and irritate sensitive skin, and oral medications may trigger highly adverse scar formation.

What about scars? I already have scars from previous acne outbreak. Is there anything that can be done to clear and smooth my skin back to normal?

At the Szexepil Salon we have various options to treat scars resulting from acne outbreaks from chemical peels, diamond- microdermabrasion to fractional laser or laser skin resurfacing, depending on your personal individual needs.

Is there anything I can do at home to maintain results?

You will be shown a simple home care regimen that is easy to learn. Our experienced staff will introduce you to the Solar Energy, Lipacid and Derma Clear product line that will further help with problematic skin by a boost of regenerating- nourishing and soothing active ingredients.
