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.
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?
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.
That is awesome! But no, they'll make people keep taking accutane instead of doing this =/ I say bring this to the United States and let adult acne be a thing of the past. We're in 2007, this should have come out a long time ago! It's such a simply explained process too, no medicine and ugly side effects.
It may not be suitable for teenages, but if acne persists after 20, as they said, they should make this an open option to everyone who wants to do it.
