PPx Therapy and Skin Rejuvenation

As our bodies age, skin is exposed to the sun, smoke and other toxins that affect our faces. Blotchy pigmentation, brown and red spots, or tiny veins can all pop up on us at any time in our lives. These commonly occurring skin problems can be treated using the popular Broadband Light (BBL) PPx therapy. Keep your skin healthy and youthful in your endless fight against extreme conditions. PPx therapy has begun a revolution to rejuvenate and revitalize troublesome skin.

PPx Therapy

PPx therapy, also known as Photopneumatic Technology, is an aesthetic treatment that uses a combination of pneumatic energy and broadband light to treat skin discoloration. The treatment is administered through the PPx system handpiece that draws the skin in a gentle pulling motion. The targeted areas of veins, brown and red spots and pigmentation are gently drawn closer to the handpiece, and heat energy painlessly diminishes the targets. The skin moves back to its normal place on the skin and the other areas on the face are treated. The treatment is repeated until all areas are treated.

According to the FDA, PPx therapy is a system deemed safe and effective in treating:

  • benign vascular lesions
  • pigmented lesions
  • severe and mild acne

How is PPx different from other laser treatments?

PPx is the first and only one of its kind to combine pneumatic energy and broadband light. It differs from other laser- and light-based treatments in that it is more effective in delivering energy to skin, and it uses a fraction of the energy that other technology requires. Photopneumatic therapy is a very quick treatment that does not need any anesthetic or numbing, and is described by patients to feel similar to a warm massage without any pain.

What are the benefits of using PPx therapy?

Patients observe the results they want to achieve without use of painful heat or numbing medication. Removing skin pigmentation and age spots has been made simple for anyone suffering from damaged skin.

Other benefits of PPx therapy include:

  • Cleansing pores and sun-damaged skin
  • Removal of mild and moderate acne, including blackheads and whiteheads
  • Painless treatment
  • Technology allows quick return to activity without any down time

Am I a good candidate for PPx therapy?

If your facial appearance is marred by redness, brown spots, veins and other signs of aging then PPx therapy is for you. Maintaining youthful skin is easy and requires no recovery time for people who are on the go. Other possible candidates include those who desire:

  • Flawless glowing skin
  • Smoother complexion
  • Less oily skin
  • Fewer blackheads and acne

Larger areas can be treated quickly with PPx therapy with no signs of scars or remaining pigmentation with successful treatment.
