Say Goodbye to Acne with Sebacia
If you suffer from acne, we know that you’ve probably tried it all. From options like multi-step skincare routines, topical treatments, and prescription medications, we understand that finding the right solution for you can feel frustrating and exhausting. You’re not alone. In fact, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, acne is the most common skin condition in the United States, affecting up to 50 million Americans annually. While 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 experience at least minor acne, acne can occur at any stage of life at varying levels of severity and may continue into one’s 30s and 40s. With 80 years of bringing the best in health and beauty to Atlanta, Dermatology Consultants has stayed on the forefront of the most effective and cutting edge solutions to treat our patients from the inside out. Acne is no exception. We’re excited to announce that Dermatology Consultants is the first practice in Georgia to offer Sebacia, a state of the art treatment that has shown an average of 85% reduction in acne 12 months post-procedure.
So, How does Sebacia work?
With an overproduction of oil being the primary cause of acne, Sebacia combines both a topical product and a laser to target your breakouts directly at the source. A formula made up of real, elemental gold microparticles, is applied to the face with an electric massaging tool in order to penetrate your pores. The Sebacia microparticles travel down your hair follicles, collecting in your sebaceous glands. After waiting a few minutes with the topical on your face, your practitioner wipes off the excess with warm water, leaving the remaining particles deep in your pores. Next, a laser is applied to the skin to heat the gold microparticles. This ultimately results in pore and gland restriction, lessening your skin’s production of oil. Our bodies naturally produce oil to lubricate and protect our skin, but when there is excess, that’s when issues arise. Reducing oil production with Sebacia has shown to not only improve existing acne but also keep future breakouts at bay.
Clear Your Skin in 3 Easy Treatments
To be its most effective, Sebacia requires three treatment sessions, spaced about one week apart. Ultimately, this maximizes the number of oil glands we are able to target, providing the most optimal and long lasting results for our patients. Treatments typically take 30 – 45 minutes each and are not limited to just the face. Sebacia can be used to treat other problem areas too, like the chest and back. There is low pain associated with treatment and zero long lasting symptoms. Sebacia is FDA approved for treatment in patients over 12 years old, and we are thrilled with the results that we are seeing for our patients.
