  • I found the Aesthera PPx to be best for diminishing brown spots and acne. It can also improve skin texture. If you live near Denver, check out www.acomocliticstudio.com for services. $150 per session.

Aesthera PPx Presentation

  1. 1. <ul><li>Aesthera PPx </li></ul><ul><li>April </li></ul><ul><li>2007 </li></ul><ul><li>Dublin </li></ul>

  4. 4. <ul><li>Why PPx? </li></ul><ul><li>PPx therapy is the first clinically proven painless treatment for acne, skin rejuvenation and permanent hair reduction. The PPx treatment is a quick, non-invasive, no-downtime, in-office procedure that requires no pre-treatment anaesthetics or gels. </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>The Technology </li></ul><ul><li>The technology behind this therapy is that it uses a proprietary combination of broadband light and pneumatic energy (vacuum) delivered through a hand-piece. </li></ul><ul><li>The treatment is unique in that a vacuum momentarily draws the skin into the treatment hand-piece causing the top layer of skin to become thinner. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>How does PPx work? </li></ul><ul><li>The &quot;pulling up” motion gently thins the epidermis and brings the dermis and structures there (including unwanted hair) closer to the surface of the skin. </li></ul><ul><li>Light energy is then applied to the dermal skin (including hair or blood vessels). This is then converted by selective photo thermolysis to heat energy and absorbed by the target, quickly, painlessly and effectively destroying it </li></ul>
  7. 7. Different objects in the skin preferentially absorb different wavelengths of light. (selective absorption ) “ How does Selective Photothermolysis work ?”
  8. 8. The right wavelength can selectively destroy the object without affecting the surrounding tissue. ( selective photothermolysis )
  9. 9. Laser IPL + long-pulse multi- wavelength Laser Single Energy Multiple Wavelength Multiple Wavelength Multiple Energy IPL+RF now PPx Recent Development of Lasers and Skin 1980-2000 1990-2000 2000-2010 Single Energy Single Wavelength
  10. 10. Differences between LASERS and IPL LASER ‘ Radiation of a fixed wavelength’ IPL ‘ Fixed range of pulsed light of differing wavelengths’ Targets at different depths of skin will be affected. The selectivity of IPL is decreased and much higher energy is often needed to achieve the clinical result.

  18. 18. <ul><li>Why PPx? </li></ul><ul><li>PPx therapy is the first clinically proven painless treatment for acne, skin rejuvenation and permanent hair reduction. The PPx treatment is a quick, non-invasive, no-downtime, in-office procedure that requires no pre-treatment anaesthetics or gels. </li></ul>
  19. 19. <ul><li>What are the advantages? </li></ul><ul><li>The greatest benefit is that the PPx is totally painless. This is important as most patients feel pain during hair removal . </li></ul>
  20. 20. <ul><li>What are the other advantages? </li></ul><ul><li>The second major benefit is speed of treatments. This system is five times faster than conventional IPL lasers </li></ul><ul><li>The third is that PPx achieves clinical efficacy without compromising on safety. . </li></ul><ul><li>The fourth i s the ability of the system to cause pore cleansing during treatment. </li></ul><ul><li>. </li></ul>
  21. 21. <ul><li>What is pore cleansing? </li></ul><ul><li>The pores are cleansed as vacuum activation helps to elevate the sebaceous gland, bringing it closer to the skin’s surface </li></ul><ul><li>Removing these blockages simultaneously helps clean the sebaceous gland leaving clean and clear looking skin </li></ul>
  22. 22. <ul><li>Types of ACNE </li></ul><ul><li>Closed comedones </li></ul><ul><li>” Whiteheads”: Whiteheads can occur on the surface of the skin and can be caused when the pore is completely blocked, trapping sebum (oil), causing a white appearance on the surface of the skin, hence the name “whitehead.” </li></ul><ul><li>Open comedones “Blackheads”: Blackheads result from the pore being partially blocked by sebaceous debris composed of dead skin cells, sebum and bacteria. The black colour results from oxidization of melanin in the skin. </li></ul><ul><li>Papules: Papules are the mildest form of inflammatory acne. The occur on the skin as solid, small, but inflamed red bumps that feel tender </li></ul>
  23. 23. <ul><li>Types of ACNE </li></ul><ul><li>Pustules: Pustules are small round dome shaped lesions with visible white or yellow “centres” of pus. </li></ul><ul><li>Nodules: Nodules are solid, dome-shaped or irregularly shaped lesion that feel like hard bumps right under the skin’s surface an extend into deeper layers of the skin, often causing tissue destruction that results in scarring. </li></ul><ul><li>Cysts: Acne cysts are larger than pustules and appear similar to a nodule except that they are pus filled. Cysts can be painful lesions. </li></ul>
  24. 24. <ul><li>T </li></ul><ul><li>PPx Pore-Cleansing ACNE Treatment </li></ul><ul><li>The PPx Pore-Cleansing ACNE Treatment™ helps clear acne while helping to cleanse your pores. This unique acne treatment has even helped people who previously did not respond to topicals, antibiotics and painful laser treatments.* Painless, quick and effective are three words that describe the PPx Pore-Cleansing ACNE Treatment™. There are no numbing gels, no lengthy treatment times or no sensitivity to light, so you’re in and out in a flash. </li></ul>
  25. 25. <ul><li>In a recent study, the PPx Pore-Cleansing ACNE Treatment™ even worked for people who had previously tried but had no results from orals, medications, topicals and lasers. Here were the results with PPx Pore-Cleansing ACNE Treatment™: </li></ul>
  26. 26. Let us revise what We have learned
  27. 27. <ul><li>No Pain treatments:   PPx therapy is a relaxing no pain treatment. In a recently published peer reviewed clinical study, an astounding 100% of treated patients noted that treatments with the Aesthera PPx system were painless and relaxing. </li></ul>
  28. 28. <ul><li>Safer:  PPx therapy is up to 5 times more efficient in delivering energy to the target.  The effective and efficient use of lower energies allows the destruction of targets (unwanted hair, pigment and unsightly veins) while protecting surrounding normal tissue. </li></ul>
  29. 29. <ul><li>No Pain treatments:   PPx therapy is a relaxing no pain treatment. In a recently published peer reviewed clinical study, an astounding 100% of treated patients noted that treatments with the Aesthera PPx system were painless and relaxing. </li></ul>
  30. 30. <ul><li>Require No Pre-Treatments with Topical Anesthetics: Photopneumatic therapy eliminates the need for 30-45 minute long numbing pre-treatments with topical anesthetics. </li></ul>
  31. 31. <ul><li>Fast, treating whole legs and backs in under 20 minutes: Photopneumatic therapy is up to 7 times faster than traditional light based treatments, so it’s ideal for busy physicians and patients. </li></ul>
  32. 32. <ul><li>The treatment screen of the Aesthera PPx system is conveniently placed on the handpiece. </li></ul><ul><li>Ergonomic Handpiece : The handpiece on the Aesthera PPx system was designed from the ground up with the comfort of the operator being of central importance. The ultra-light handpiece moulds to the grip of the operator is designed to minimize user fatigue. </li></ul>
