Aesthera PPx

Aesthera PPx is a type of Photopneumatic Therapy, whereby a light is shone onto the skin that encourages the production of collagen. Unlike laser and intense pulsed light treatements, Aesthera PPx is almost pain free and the results can be seen straight away. Aesthera PPx is a combination of pneumatic energy and broadband light.

Aesthera is a suitable treatment for:

  • Acne, blackheads and whiteheads
  • Uneven skin pigmentation or redness
  • Freckles, age spots and sun damage
  • Thread veins, broken capillaries and Telangiectasias
  • Hair removal

During treatment, the light is applied to the skin. The treatment tip sucks the treatment area into the Aesthera PPx system, bring broken veins etc closer to the surface of the skin. The light energy once applied converts to hear energy upon touching the skin, destroying the imperfection. Unwanted pigmentation and thread veins disappear leaving the skin looking invigorated. A facial treatment can take just five minutes, which is much quicker than other light based systems. For best results, between four and six treatments are recommended.

Aesthera PPx is highly targeted and so uses less energy than other laser or pulsed light systems, and there is no pre or post treatment required with cooled pads or anaesthetic cream.

No recovery time is required, although you are advised to wear a sunblock on your skin for at least a fortnight after treatment.
