Sebaceous Gland Removal

Gobayasi sebaceous gland removal

This is a fundamental interception by destroying sebaceous glands on the T-zone where most oil is produced. By suppressing oil production semi-permanently, it is removing the cause of enlarged pores. Specially designed Gobayasi fine insulating needle is inserted into every single pore to remove sebaceous glands. It is highly effective at treating recurrent inflamed acne, de-shining the nose (which results in uneven makeup) and reducing pores. This procedure is especially good for patients with a lot of blackheads in their noses (sebum collects and hardens in the pores without being expelled through the skin and the exposed tip becomes oxidized and black.) A series of treatments (about 4) spaced out about 2~4 weeks apart is recommended. Treating the nose usually takes no more than 40 minutes. If patient is older, healing period will be longer, so an interval of 3~4 weeks is more appropriate.

I'm sure your derm will know of this procedure. Sounds interesting since I have large pores and oily skin.

Sun damage has more to do with aging than pretty much anything else besides genetics.

true, lack of oil doesn't cause wrinkles, lack of collagen does.

I'm going to try moving this into Acne Research .... curious to see what people there have to say about it.

if no one comes up with any supporting/opposing studies, we can always move it back here.

Do you really think taking the nature-given sebaceous gland away isnt going to have a "Catch"?. I bet you there is one eventhough I do not know what.

I wonder what it is, because they seem so useless :( Or possibly just getting rid of half, or a little more than half on t zone areas so you can still get the benefits of natural sebum without too much of it perhaps. :think:

Sebum, some people say, has absolutely no functional purpose. I believe they take the view that Sebaceous Glands are simply things with which Man has nullified a reqirement for through years of evolving, yet the organ is still physically there. It definately has no impact on one's visible aging.

The consistency of the Sebum is what determines whether or not it clogs pores, so just having oily skin doesn't always equal acne. Though the hormonal factors which quite often trigger heightened Sebaceous activity also cause the Sebum to be thicker.

The thicker Sebum clogs the pore, and P.Acne's (good bacteria found in abundance on one's skin) feed off of that oil. Then your body tries to fight off the infection, thus we have inflamed, oily, puss filled lesions. (Not that anybody asked, but i thought it might help a few understand what happens)

My only reservation is that perhaps the Sebaceous Gland does still serve a functional, even required purpose, and by removing them we would be creating another problem. Something more complex, and somewhat irreversible. :think:

Duuude...

I wonder if there is any surgery for getting your face removed?

Now that would sure solve all my problems!

how about skin transplants, take the skin off your bicep and put it on your face so you would have way less sebum glands.

Part of the purpose of sebum is to provide the protective acid mantle to the skin. There are those of us who have such significant sebum production though, that loss of half our facial sebum production ability may not actually greatly harm our skin's natural acidity, but that's just a guess on my part.

Jesus! Where do I sign up.

Edit: I guess I'll be going to south Korea within the next few years if this seemingly simple and miraculous treatment doesn't make it here by then...I'm serious and thanks for bringing this to my attention NdnRomeo.

Here is a Q&A that I found on the site, this really sounds too good to be true, but South Korea has always been ahead of its time.

Question:

I’d like to find an acne treatment which will make sure I don’t get acne again

I have been suffering from acne for a long time. I’ve tried applying medication supposed to work wonders and have visited dermatologists, but to no avail. I have spent so much time and money in acne treatment. I’m getting to lose confidence as my skin is more and more covered with acne… Is there a magical treatment to get rid of acne?

Answer:

Acne is an infection of follicles; a kind of folliculitis. Unlike typical folliculitis, however, acne only occurs where there are sebaceous glands. Acne treatment, using Gobayasi insulating needle takes advantage of this characteristic and destroys sebaceous glands to ensure acne does not occur in that particular spot any more. Specially designed fine insulating needle destroys sebaceous glands; this works in the same theory as permanent hair removal which destroys hair roots so that hair does not grow again. Gobayasi insulating needle procedure completely cures adult onset acne with a mere 1~2 treatments. Rather than teenage acne when all follicles are actively involved, the insulating needle treatment is more suitable for adult onset acne after the age of 20, chronic recurrent acne, acne along your jaw line which leaves scars, and intractable inflamed acne.

On an average, two procedures are needed, with a one-month waiting period in between. It can be done in as little as 30 minutes and you can wash your face and apply makeup immediately after procedure. The destroyed sebaceous glands can be squeezed clean the day after procedure at the clinic. It typically takes a month for the acne to subside and 4 months for the redness to completely disappear.
