sga acne therapy


persistent blemishes

Sebaceous Gland Ablation (SGA) is a groundbreaking acne treatment that targets the root cause of breakouts: overactive sebaceous glands. This innovative therapy selectively destroys the "rogue" sebaceous glands, also known as overactive oil glands, which are responsible for recurring acne in specific areas of the skin.

The treatment involves the use of a pen-like device with a very fine probe that delivers a high-frequency current, a process called thermolysis. This precise targeting allows the treatment to neutralise the problematic glands without damaging the surrounding skin, making it a safe and scar-free alternative to traditional acne treatments. SGA is non-drug acne therapy, an excellent option for those who may not tolerate or wish to avoid oral or topical acne medications.

By permanently disabling the overactive sebaceous glands, SGA effectively eliminates the source of excess oil production that contributes to the formation of acne. This targeted approach is particularly effective for treating stubborn, recurring breakouts that appear in the same location, as it prevents the glands from producing the oil that clogs pores and leads to the development of pimples.

how does sga acne therapy work? 

SGA utilises a pen-like device with a fine probe to deliver a high-frequency current (thermolysis) directly to overactive sebaceous glands. This precise targeting neutralises problematic glands without damaging surrounding skin. 

By permanently disabling these "rogue" glands, SGA eliminates the source of excess oil that leads to clogged pores and acne formation.
