Designed as a Simple In-Office Treatment for Acne
Unlike topical retinoids, benzoyl peroxide, topical and systemic antibiotics, or isotretinoin, which rely on the daily taking of a pill, the application of a cream, or both, SEBACIA MICROPARTICLES treat acne with a physician-guided in-office procedure.
By delivering Sebacia Microparticles through the pores and only into follicles and sebaceous glands, SEBACIA MICROPARTICLES are designed to work with 1,064 nm Nd:YAG laser to facilitate the heating of sebacious glands to treat mild to moderate acne.
With SEBACIA MICROPARTICLES, treating acne is designed to be a simple, two-step process:
The patented topical Sebacia Microparticle suspension is applied to the skin surface and then wiped off.
After a cleansing wiping of the skin surface, a 1,064 nm Nd:YAG laser is applied to the desired treatment areas, which is designed to generate near-instantaneous heating only where the Sebacia Microparticles and the light emanated from the laser intersect.
This is intended to create a highly selective photothermal effect in the sebaceous gland and follicle while preserving the surrounding tissue to limit pain associated with the procedure.
The focused heating is designed to modify portions of the gland to alter the activity level of the gland. The investigational SEBACIA device is being evaluated in clinical studies as a potential acne treatment.
