What is AGNES Acne Permanent Removal and what does it treat?
AGNES is the latest form of cosmetic treatment specially designed to selectively target acne-prone facial follicles without causing thermal damage to the skin. By targeting the root cause of acne—the hyperactive sebaceous glands, this treatment permanently eliminates persistent, chronic acne.
This state-of-the-art technology was discovered through the combined efforts of Japanese scientists and a Korean dermatologist and was able to provide a long-lasting cure for acne.
Why Old Approaches to Acne Treatment in Singapore Doesn’t Work
Over the years, the only solutions to pesky and recurring acne are strong and harsh acne products like creams and pills that cause the skin to become dry and become even more sensitive. In some cases, these anti-acne products can cause peeling of the skin, cracked lips and even dryness of the eye.
When patients see improvements and stop using these products, the acne makes a comeback and will start the cycle of using creams and pills all over again. Sometimes, acne breakouts are even worse than before. Just the thought of having to use anti-acne products for the rest of your life can be very daunting. This is why it cannot be denied that a lot of people can relate that these harsh products can be very frustrating to use, especially given the side-effects and the lack of assurance that the root cause for their acne is fixed in the first place.
Why does acne keep on appearing on the same spots on my face?
According to a Japanese study, there are specific cases of acne patients where they had pimples that kept reappearing on the same regions of their face. Through digital mapping procedures, they realized that there were specifically a few hundred pores that were being blocked repeatedly, accounting for nearly 90% of all acne on the patient’s face. They were able to conclude that such damaged pores, that are unable to handle the flow of sebum, are the main cause for acne breakouts that occur throughout adulthood.
Why Choose AGNES Acne Permanent Removal Treatment?
Until recently, there weren’t any effective options for a permanent cure for acne. With AGNES Acne Permanent Removal, there is no more need for those drying and irritating acne creams and pills that seem to do no good even after a long application cycle. More importantly, with this treatment, you can now say goodbye to stubborn acne and you’ll never have to worry about recurrence.
How does AGNES Acne Permanent Removal treat acne?
AGNES is an acne treatment that can specifically and precisely targets acne-prone follicles on the face without damaging the skin’s epidermis. This treatment kills those nasty sebaceous glands that cause recurrent acne, resulting in a reduction in the size of the gland and the prevention of oil blockage and clogging. By selectively treating problematic pores, it can prevent acne from recurring up to 12 months after the last treatment.
FAQs on Acne Treatment in Singapore
You are a good candidate for the AGNES treatment if:
- You have certain pimples on your face that appear on the exact same spot on your face over and over again.
- You’ve tried other conventional acne treatments with some success, but the acne returned after stopping treatment.
- You have pores that frequently get clogged with dirt, oil or dead skin cells, causing blackheads and acne.
- You are unsuitable for conventional acne treatments due to some situations such as pregnancy.
For the procedure, your doctor will first examine your face with a magnifier and identify the specific pores on your skin that are damaged and blocked and are responsible for your acne breakouts. A topical numbing cream is then applied over your face to minimize the discomfort. After this, a small electric current is introduced into these pores using a thin electric wire attached to the AGNES machine. This will destroy the oil-producing gland, which will reduce its size and will limit the amount of oil production. Due to this, there will be no oil to block the pores which in turn reduces pimples and acne.
The AGNES treatment is a laborious procedure due to the pores being very tiny and would need a lot of time and care from the doctor to perform successfully. The results are completely worth it though. Each session of treatment will take about 30-60 minutes depending on the number of pimples and the complexity of the process.
Immediately after the treatment, there will be some redness on the treatment area that will last for about a day or two. The next day, a follow-up session is needed to squeeze out the dead cells from your pores. This second session is done by a therapist and is relatively painless compared to the first session.
With three treatments of AGNES over a year, it is possible to treat non-inflamed acne up to over 83% and inflamed acne up to over 93%. In fact, even after 12 months after treatment, patients continue to enjoy the lasting results of AGNES while only a small percentage (16.7%) require another treatment to achieve completely clear skin.
After the first treatment, patients can already expect a 50-70% decrease in acne breakouts. After the third session, patients can expect up to over 90% clearance. However, like most medical treatments, the results can vary from person to person depending on how your skin reacts to the treatment. Some patients can achieve full clearance after three sessions while some may require additional touch-up sessions to achieve the desired results.
