What is Sebaceous Hyperplasia?

Sebaceous hyperplasia is a condition that affects the sebaceous glands in the skin. Sebum is an oily material produced by the sebaceous glands and aids in keeping the skin hydrated. The sebaceous glands of individuals with sebaceous hyperplasia grow and become hyperactive, which causes the skin to develop tiny, yellowish or flesh-colored pimples or lesions. These bumps typically have a smooth, slightly elevated surface with a central indentation. Adults over 40 most often experience sebaceous hyperplasia.

At VivaSkin Dermatology and Aesthetics, we offer relief for sebaceous hyperplasia with the innovative and advanced Accure Acne laser platform, which targets the sebaceous glands to reduce sebum production and inflammation. To learn more about Accure Acne and how it can treat sebaceous hyperplasia, contact our office in Wellesley, MA at your earliest convenience.

How Are Sebaceous Hyperplasia Treatments With Accure Acne Performed?

After confirming that you have sebaceous hyperplasia and are an excellent candidate for Accure Acne treatments, a VivaSkin team member will lead you to a private treatment room. Then, we will clean your face or treatment area and apply a topical anesthetic to ensure that you stay comfortable while the light energy of Accure works to suppress the sebaceous glands. Accure Acne treatments typically last between 20 – 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. You may feel a slight snapping sensation during the session, but no downtime is required following the treatment. A typical treatment plan includes four sessions spaced approximately one month apart, but your number of treatments may vary.

Dr Pomerantz and her office staff provided a perfect experience for a first-time RHA filler patient. The office was easy to access and offered ample parking, inside was pristine and luxurious, reception was communicative and punctual, and Dr Pomerantz offered thorough explanations of both the product and her technique, as well as aftercare. Dr Pomerantz delivered flawless results and I’m excited to return for future medical and cosmetic dermatology!

Dr. Pomerantz and her staff were fantastic to work with! My visit at her clinic ran smoothly, quickly and efficiently, helping address my dermatological needs promptly. Not only was the care and information helpful during my visit, but afterwards as well. She ensured to follow up on my progress to make sure the treatment was working and for that I am grateful. Highly recommend!

Dr Pomerantz is such a nice person, and open to listening and working with me, as I prefer to use natural methods. We discussed many ways of addressing an issue and she likes much of what I am doing and my suggestions. Dr Pomerantz made some suggestions that fit exactly with my approach. Thank you so much.
