Dr. Kouros Azar owner of Azar Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Thousand Oaks, California is the only plastic surgeon in the United States to begin a new revolutionary acne treatment, Sebacia. Sebacia is the newest and safest acne treatment on the market. With over 10 years of research, the new Sebacia acne treatment received FDA approval in November of 2019. Unlike other aggressive acne treatments such as Accutane or Retin-A which may have severe side effects in some patients and require close monitoring, Sebacia is safe for kids and teenagers over 13 years old.
Sebacia does not use any harsh drugs or antibiotics, instead the treatment is applied directly onto the face. The Sebacia technique is made up of small silica beads coated with gold which is applied directly onto the face. It is massaged into the skin for 10 minutes. The particles go down into glands but do not absorb into the body or into the body’s cells. After massaging Sebacia into the skin, a small laser is applied during three treatment sessions over a period of two weeks for 20-30 minutes at maximum.
This new acne technology dramatically reduces oil production in the skin, which is one of the main problems when acne occurs. Sebacia achieves this reduction by eliminating a lot of the oil gland cells similar to the way laser hair removal works. The gold microparticle dust applied to the skin combined with the laser makes this possible.
Studies show that after three treatment sessions of Sebacia 65% of acne has gone down after 60 days and 85% of acne has gone down after one year. Sebacia does not require more than three sessions over two weeks however, follow up treatments can be done for preventative reasons.
Dr. Azar is the only plastic surgeon performing this pivotal acne technique in the United States.
