Gold Photothermal Therapy (Gold PTT) treatment is a powerful treatment for acne that uses gold nanoparticles to target frequent breakouts, cystic acne, and acne scarring. The clinic explains that they are offering the treatment to bring new hope to acne sufferers, particularly those who have tried many treatments to no avail.

The procedure works by delivering gold nanoparticles into the skin’s pores before using a dermatology laser to heat them. Gold PTT treatment is designed to address facial acne and involves 4 steps. These include facial cleansing prior to the procedure, Bellasonic Ultrasound that pulses the particles into the skin’s oil glands, and finally laser treatment that heats the gold to create a focused photo-thermal effect.

This photo-thermal effect prevents the formation of excessive oil and clogged pores which lead to acne by decreasing the activity level of the skin’s glands and follicles.

As part of the updated treatment, patients will be required to undergo the treatment three times over a one-week period to get its full effects. Each session lasts between 30 and 45 minutes and does not require anesthesia. Sufferers of mild to cystic acne should see an improvement in their skin’s condition in the six weeks following the procedure and should notice a reduction in new breakouts, lesions, and scarring.

A spokesperson for the clinic explains, “In a controlled clinical trial, gold nanoparticles were found to reduce the appearance of inflammatory acne lesions effectively. Patients showed an average improvement of 34 percent at 3 months and inflammatory lesion count was 60 percent reduced at 6 months.”

The treatment is best suited to individuals who suffer from mild to cystic acne and people who experience frequent acne breakouts. Interested parties can visit the website to book a consultation. A doctor will assess each client’s skin to determine if the treatment is suitable for them.
