AviClear™ Acne Laser Treatment
If your acne has resisted treatment and you have been considering prescription medications, you have a new alternative. AviClear is the first and only FDA-cleared laser for the treatment of mild to severe acne.
AviClear™ works on all types of acne, whether you have cystic, inflammatory, hormonal, or mask acne! Using a unique wavelength of laser energy, this innovative treatment treats acne at the source by selectively targeting and suppressing the sebaceous gland safely and effectively, reducing the frequency and severity of breakouts. AviClear can significantly eliminate acne and deliver long-lasting results in just three 30-minute treatment sessions and no downtime.
How AviClear Works
To understand how AviClear works, it’s important to understand how breakouts happen. Acne forms when sebum, the oily substance on your skin, combines with dead skin cells and clogs your pores. Most acne treatments target other things that cause acne, but not the production of sebum. And that makes a big difference to your results. Those treatments won’t provide lasting improvement, and acne will return if you stop treatment or don’t use it every day. AviClear specifically targets the source of the oily substance on your skin. After treatment, you will produce less oil, and your acne will get better and stay better.
No Harmful Side Effects
The sensation of light is sometimes bright and uncomfortable. It may feel like a moderate to severe pinprick and a flash of heat. A mild sunburn-like sensation is expected. This usually lasts 2-24 hours but can persist up to 72 hours. Mild swelling and redness may accompany this, but it is usually resolved within 3 days. Some may experience dryness and itching of the treatment area up to 4 weeks post-treatment. An estimated 50% of AviClear patients experienced post-inflammatory flare-ups after one or all treatments. Condition may worsen before it improves. This typically occurs 1-week post-treatment and can last weeks.
