AGNES Acne Treatment
Long-lasting Solution For Stubborn Acne in Singapore
Acne, also known as acne vulgaris, is a skin condition that is due to overactive oil glands at the base of hair follicles. These glands make sebum, which is an oil that lubricates your skin. Acne occurs when pores become clogged with too much sebum and dead skin cells. These spots often appear on the face, neck, chest, and back.
Acne is generally not a serious medical condition, but it can have significant physical and psychological effects on those who suffer from it. Severe acne can lead to permanent scarring, and even mild acne can be uncomfortable and embarrassing for some people. Acne can also have a negative impact on self-esteem and quality of life, especially in adolescents who are particularly vulnerable to social pressure and self-consciousness.
In less serious cases of acne, the clogged pores form a bulge, causing whiteheads and blackheads to develop. Sometimes, bacteria may get trapped in the pores and cause inflammation which leads to inflammation of the skin. When superficial inflammation occurs, papule or pustules may form, indicating that the body is fighting a minor infection. When left untreated or when the inflammation affects the deeper layer of the skin, cysts may develop. In such cases, permanent acne scars may occur if the infection is not well-managed.
Dealing with recurring acne can be a daily affair if the skin is often oily and pores are enlarged.
AGNES Acne Treatment: Solution for stubborn acne
AGNES Acne Treatment is now available to solve your acne problems.
AGNES is a non-surgical treatment from Korea designed to treat stubborn, chronic acne. It targets the root problem of acne by destroying hyperactive sebaceous glands responsible. The doctor administers the treatment by using insulated micro-needles to administer radiofrequency energy precisely on the area to be treated. The needles are insulated in order to prevent thermal injury to the skin. In addition, local anaesthesia will be injected into the area prior to treatment to ensure patient’s comfort during the procedure.
With the offending sebaceous glands destroyed, hair follicles do not get inflamed and infected any more. As a result, your acne goes away without recurring again.
Is AGNES acne treatment safe?
AGNES Acne Treatment leverages on a technology that uses a micro-insulated needles to deliver radiofrequency waves to selectively destroy the overactive sebaceous glands while protecting the surface of the skin and the surrounding tissue. This minimises any injury or trauma to the surrounding skin.
What is the downtime?
The procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete. You may experience some redness and swelling immediately after the treatment. However, these post-treatment effects should subside in about 3 to 4 days.
