    Treatment & Technology in Ottawa

    AFT harnesses innovative pulsed light-based technology, a groundbreaking approach to acne management. This cutting-edge system filters UV light at optimal levels to target acne-producing bacteria known as Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes). Through the intense pulsing of blue light, AFT effectively eliminates P. acnes bacteria, all while protecting the integrity of the surrounding skin tissue.

    It all starts with a simple consultation.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How does AFT work to treat acne?

    Advanced Fluorescence Technology (AFT) treats acne using pulsed light-based technology. It filters UV light to specific levels to target the acne-causing bacteria Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes). The pulsing light then destroys this bacteria. 

    AFT can differentiate between harmful bacteria and healthy skin tissue, making it a safe and efficient acne treatment. Delivering targeted wavelengths of light ensures the elimination of P. acnes, reducing discomfort and minimizing the risk of side effects, offering an effective and non-invasive solution for acne management.

    Is AFT safe for all skin types?

    AFT is generally safe for a wide range of skin types. Its ability to harness specific wavelengths of light allows for customized treatment, minimizing the risk of adverse effects. However, the safety and effectiveness of AFT can be influenced by factors such as darker skin tone, underlying skin conditions, and individual sensitivities. To ensure safety and optimal results, contact us at Project Skin MD® Ottawa for a consultation.

    What are the benefits of AFT for acne?

    AFT offers many benefits. It’s a non-invasive approach that eliminates the need for topical or systemic medications. Due to AFT’s precise technology, it can target the harmful P. acnes bacteria with little discomfort and damage to the healthy surrounding skin tissue. This precision means that AFT can effectively treat acne lesions without extensive downtime—patients can typically resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.

    AFT’s customizable settings also make it suitable for various skin types and tones, allowing for tailored solutions to individual acne concerns.

    How many AFT sessions are typically needed for acne treatment?

    We recommend eight AFT treatment sessions, spaced out twice a week. However, the number of sessions varies depending on your needs.

    Is AFT painful, and is there any downtime?

    AFT is considered a non-invasive treatment. As such, there is little to no downtime. Patients can usually return to work and other routine activities immediately after the procedure. 

    Are there any potential side effects of AFT for acne?

    Like any procedure, side effects are possible. You may experience tighter skin and minor redness, stinging, and swelling. These side effects usually subside after one to two days. Some treated spots may get darker and then peel off, which is normal. Additionally, the skin may feel temporarily sensitive after treatment.

    Can AFT be used in combination with other acne treatments?

    While AFT is an effective standalone acne solution, you can combine it with other facial treatments. To learn more about which treatment combinations are right for you, reach out to us at Project Skin MD® Ottawa for a personalized assessment of your acne concerns and goals.

    How long do the results of AFT treatment for acne last?

    Results gradually develop in the days and weeks following the treatment. Your refreshed complexion can last for months, providing you continue to care for your skin by protecting it from the sun and adopting a good skincare routine. Yearly maintenance treatments may be required.
