Acne treatment with AFT pulsed light advantage
Common acne management approaches are problematic. At best,
inconsistent, at worst harmful, conventional methods do not
satisfactorily solve this widespread problem.
Topical applications, like ointments and creams, are popular for
treating acne, but may irritate the skin, and do not actually
reduce acne bacteria. While antibiotics may be effective in some
cases, they often require long-time use, and are not recommended
unless necessary. Some acne drugs have been linked with potentially
serious side effects. Effective and comfortable, AFT pulsed light
works quickly and thoroughly to kill acne bacteria. Destroying
bacteria faster then they proliferate, AFT pulsed light counters
acne better than any conventional method. With no side effects or
downtime, it also eliminates the issue of patient compliance.
Destroying acne at its source
Acne, a widespread and socially frustrating condition, is
estimated to affect close to ten percent of the population. While
not life-threatening, acne can cause long-term physical and
emotional scaring. Accounting for more than a third of all
dermatologist visits each year, acne is believed to be caused by a
mix of genetic, hormonal and environmental factors. Current
treatment options have, for many patients, been ineffective and
accompanied by negative side effects. High costs and long required
treatment periods also make many medications an unsatisfactory
solution. Now, armed with AFT pulsed light technology, physicians
can effectively clear moderate inflammatory acne within one month.
AFT pulsed light yields quick, impressive results without side
effects, pain or photosensitivity.
How does AFT pulsed light technology work?
High-intensity AFT pulsed light permeate the tissue, reaching
and precisely targeting the acne-causing bacteria.
As the intense light penetrates the tissue, it sets off a
chemical reaction in which endogenic porphyrins, ring-like
molecules found in all living organisms, increase, attack and
destroy the bacteria, stopping acne at its source. The result:
extensive acne clearance in several sessions.
Who can be treated?
Healthy adults and teenagers can undergo AFT pulsed light acne
treatment. If you suffer from a specific illness or take medication
on a regular basis, please notify your physician.
What to expect?
AFT pulsed light acne treatment is non-invasive and painless. A
full-face session takes about 15-20 minutes, while chest or back
may take somewhat longer. After treatment, patients immediately
resume regular activities, an all-important feature for active
teens and young adults. After your course of treatment, you may
notice improvement not only in your inflamed acne, but in scarred
areas as well.
Is it safe?
The parameters of AFT pulsed light are specially designed to
match your skin type, assuring exceptionally exact and gentle
treatment. Clinical trials conducted by leading authorities on
pulsed light document its safety and effectiveness.
Does it hurt?
While pain tolerance is an individual matter, most people
tolerate AFT pulsed light treatment well, and describe the
sensation as a rubber band snap to the skin. The majority of
patients require no anaesthesia, though topical anaesthetic is an
option for more sensitive areas.
