How the AviClear™ Laser Works to Treat Acne

Almost everyone experiences a few acne breakouts, especially during the hormonal teenage years. For some people, acne becomes a chronic problem that resists treatment. AviClear™ treats mild to severe acne for clearer skin and fewer breakouts. 

What is AviClear™?

This FDA-approved breakthrough acne treatment offers an entirely new way to manage this frustrating condition. AviClear™ uses a laser that targets over-producing oil glands. Slowing down oil production leads to fewer blocked pores and less acne. Unlike many other laser treatments, AviClear™ works safely on all skin types and tones. It also has none of the side effects of prescription medications. 

How the AviClear™ Laser Works to Treat Acne

Using laser energy at a 1726 nm wavelength, AviClear™ targets the oil-producing glands in your skin. Treatment leads to a decrease in oil production from the glands. With less oil to clog pores, you will see fewer breakouts, and the ones you have will be milder. AviClear™ suppresses but does not destroy the sebaceous glands since your skin needs some oil to stay healthy and prevent dryness.

What is AviClear™ Acne Treatment Like?

The AviClear™ system uses AviCool™, a cooling device that makes contact with the skin and keeps it comfortable throughout treatment. Numbing is not necessary, and most people find treatment painless and easy. The handheld device emits pulses of laser energy as it moves over your face, focusing on areas affected by acne. 

Am I a Good Candidate for AviClear™?

Almost anyone with acne can benefit from AviClear™. People with mild, moderate, or severe acne make good candidates. While many other lasers are unsuitable for some skin tones, AviClear™ uses a wavelength only absorbed by sebaceous glands so that all skin tones can have this treatment. If you want to avoid or stop taking prescription acne medications, AviClear™ offers an effective alternative.

Is There Any Downtime With AviClear™?

You can return to your usual activities immediately after treatment. Some people will have a breakout in reaction to the treatment, but they will become less common over time. Even after AviClear™, we recommend avoiding pore-clogging products and sticking to those labeled as non-comedogenic (designed not to clog pores).

What Results Will I See With AviClear™?

You will notice that the time between breakouts becomes longer in the weeks after treatment. Acne that does appear will be less severe. Most people need three treatments spaced a month apart. You may start to see results after one treatment, but they will continue to improve over time. Decreasing the frequency and severity of breakouts leads to less acne scarring and smoother skin.
