A NEW treatment for Acne Prone Skin that does not require prescription medication or harsh acids and peels…Sebaceous Gland Ablation, is a safe and scar free treatment can now be performed at Face Plus Medispa by Dr William Mooney (Bondi Junction) by our experienced Beauty/Skin Therapist Yvonne Culhane.
Sebaceous Gland Ablation (SGA) offers acne affected teenagers and adults a non drug, permanent solution for their acne. SGA is used to treat only those sebaceous glands affected by acne. We have thousands of sebaceous glands in our skin ( approximately 1200 per square centimeter of skin to be precise ). Only a very small number of these sebaceous glands are affected by acne and breakout, even in the most severe cases of acne. These “rogue” sebaceous glands are generally enlarged when they are inflamed and can now be treated, so that the sebaceous gland is progressively destroyed. Once the sebaceous gland is “ablated” ( a medical term using to describe tissue destruction through the use of heat ), it can no longer break out.
SGA can be performed on any active acne lesion, from a lesion as small as a blackhead to lesions as large as cysts. Only active acne can be treated, as we use the breakout as a guide to finding the affected sebaceous glands. Multiple treatments are generally required to ablate each sebaceous gland ( between two and five treatments ), so depending on the number of acne and breakout affected sebaceous glands you have, it can take many treatments to become permanently breakout free.
