50 million Americans struggle with acne. Some spend thousands of dollars on topical and oral treatments that are all too often ineffective.
AviClear is the first and only laser that is FDA approved to treat mild to severe acne. AviClear works by targeting the oily substance (sebum) in your pores. Overproduction of sebum is the leading cause of acne. AviClear does not require any topical or oral acne medications. The wavelength of the laser selectively targets the sebaceous glands (the ones responsible for acne) and inactivates them. Since it targets the sebaceous glands, it is effective for acne in younger patients as well as patients with hormonal acne when they are older.
AviClear is safe and effective for all skin types because the laser targets the sebum, not any pigments. In the FDA study, all skin types from the lightest to the darkest were treated with equal benefits. Patients undergo 3 treatments 1 month apart.
Each treatment is 30 minutes. Your skin is cleansed and then the laser is applied directly to acne-affected areas. You will feel warmth in your skin as the laser targets the oil producing glands in your skin.
No numbing is necessary because AviClear has a special cooling system to keep the procedure comfortable.
You will start to see a reduction in acne breakouts and an improvement in your skin’s overall appearance. Optimal results are achieved after a full series of 3 treatments. Each treatment will eliminate more of the oil production.
You may see some mild inflammation and redness after the procedure but it should fade over the course of a few minutes. There is no downtime from the procedure. You might have a flare of acne for a few days after the treatment.
90% of patients in the clinical studies were happy with their results at 3 months. Most saw further improvement at 6 months after their third treatment. Similar to accutane, some patients will need further treatment but without the same side effects.
