No more irritating and drying acne products!
Do you find it frustrating to keep on using anti-acne products, but just can’t seem to cure your acne problems? Have you ever shuddered at the thought of being on a lifetime of acne creams and pills? Until recently, there was not much in the way of permanent cures for acne. However, a discovery by Japanese scientists in collaboration with a Korean dermatologist has changed all that! Read on to find out more about this incredible technology.
Old Concepts of Acne Treatment
Many years ago, the solution to acne was to use strong, harsh drying creams and powerful pills that dry up the skin. However, at the same time these treatments caused the whole face to dry up and led to peeling skin, dry eyes and cracked lips.
However, this did not solve acne at its root. What many patients experienced was that after they stopped these creams and pills, the acne would just recur, sometimes even worse than before. So what was really happening with the skin?
Latest Concepts of Acne Treatment
Researchers in Japan discovered that in certain cases of acne patients, pimples were appearing on the same part of the face over and over again. Sometimes, these pimples even appeared over the same exact spot!
Through advanced digital mapping techniques, they discovered that of the thousands of pores on the face, the same few hundred pores were repeatedly getting blocked, and responsible for recurrent acne breakouts. What’s more interesting is that these few hundred pores were responsible for 80 – 90% of all the acne appearing on the face.
They concluded that recurrent adult acne was due to damaged pores on the face, which were more prone to becoming blocked. The oiliness of our skin changes from day to day, whether it is due to hormone changes, diet or stress. Normal pores can cope with these changes, but the damaged pores were not able to handle the increased flow of sebum and ended up getting clogged, leading to breakouts.
The Breakthrough in Permanent Acne Treatment
By treating these problematic pores selectively, researchers found that it was possible to cure over 83% of non-inflammed acne and over 93% of inflammed acne, when treated with 3 treatments over a year! Once these problematic pores were treated, they did not recur for the duration of one year after the last treatment.
Even after a year, most patients continued to remain well, with only a 16.7% requiring a repeat treatment to achieve clearance.
This led to probably one of the most important discoveries in the history of acne treatment, which allowed us to provide a lasting cure for acne!

AGNES works by selectively targeting acne prone follicles on the face. Using a magnifier, our doctor will scrutinise your face and identify all the blocked and damaged pores on your skin. Then, with a very fine wire attached to the AGNES machine, a tiny electrical current is introduced into the pore to zap the oil-producing gland. This reduces the gland’s size and controls the amount of oil that it produces. With no oil, there can be no blockage, and with no blockage, there can be no pimple. It’s that simple!!!
This process is a tedious process, because the pores are very tiny and it takes a lot of time on the doctors part, but it’s completely worth the trouble. Each full face session may take about half an hour for the doctor to complete, depending on the number of pimples. After the treatment, patients are red for one day. A second session is needed the following day to squeeze out the dead cells from the pores. This second session is done by our therapist and is not painful at all.
Post treatment, patients will usually experience a decrease of 50-70 percent of acne breakouts for the first treatment, and after the third session, most patients will achieve up to 90% clearance. These numbers are indicative, and some variation may occur from patient to patient. Occasionally , some patients may require a small touch up session after one year.
