Everything you need to know about AviClear

Acne is the most common skin condition in the United States. It affects around 50 million Americans each year… but that doesn’t mean that you have to put up with it. 

There are a ton of acne treatments on the market, from over-the-counter creams to harsh drugs like Accutane. But now there’s a revolutionary new acne treatment: AviClear.

What is AviClear?

The first device of its kind approved by the FDA, AviClear is an energy device that effectively treats mild to severe acne. Unlike other acne treatments, this treatment focuses on the root cause of acne breakouts: your sebaceous glands.

This skincare solution is suitable for all skin tones and types, has minimal side effects, and virtually no downtime. Plus, it’s prescription and drug-free. It’s no wonder why AviClear is considered a revolution in treating acne!

How does AviClear work?

AviClear uses breakthrough laser technology to selectively target and suppress your sebaceous glands. It’s these glands that secrete sebum, an oily substance that protects your skin from drying out. However, too much sebum combines dead skin cells and clogs our pores. The result… an outbreak of blemishes and, in the worst cases, acne.

By suppressing your sebaceous glands, this FDA-approved laser treatment treats acne breakouts. It clears up any existing pimples and prevents new ones from forming.

What to expect from your AviClear treatment 

For most patients, just three short 30-minute sessions are enough to see long-lasting results. These treatment sessions are usually spaced four to six weeks apart. 

AviClear laser treatments can only be performed by an approved provider. An expert medical aesthetician will apply the laser directly to the affected area during your treatment. The exclusive AviCoolTM sapphire skin cooling and sensory controls keep your skin at a constant temperature – all you’ll feel is some brief discomfort as the laser gets to work.

What are the results of AviClear treatment?

After it’s done its job, AviClear takes a little time for the excess oil in your skin to dissipate, which means results are not visible immediately. Most patients will see their acne start to clear up four to six weeks after their first treatment. 

In a clinical study, 88% of patients felt their skin looked better three months after the final treatment session, with 80% reporting a 50% reduction in acne! These results can last for several years before you need a follow-up session. 

AviClear cost

Compared to more traditional forms of acne treatment, AviClear is a cost-effective long-term way to combat acne. 

The best way to find out how much your treatment will cost is to book a free consultation. At your consultation, one of our experienced aestheticians will be able to walk you through the treatment process and let you know how much your treatment will cost. 

AviClear side effects 

Many topical or drug-based acne treatments are full of chemicals and toxins. AviClear has none of that – it’s chemical and toxin-free with very few side effects. 

After your treatment, you may experience some redness, inflammation or acne flare-ups, but these are usually short-lived. You’ll always want to consult your aesthetician before stopping any prescription acne treatment prior to your first AviClear treatment. 

Benefits of AviClear

  • Unlike many topical and drug-based medications, AviClear tackles acne at the source by reducing sebum production.
  • Short 30-minute procedure time with minimal discomfort. All thanks to AviClear’s unique cooling feature, which keeps you cool and comfortable during your treatment. 
  • AviClear treatment has very few side effects and is entirely non-invasive. Its 1726nm wavelength laser only targets your sebaceous glands, leaving the rest of your skin unaffected.
  • It’s safe for all skin types and tones, meaning everyone can benefit from clearer skin with AviClear.
  • Long-lasting results – AviClear clears up any existing acne and helps prevent future breakouts months or even years after your initial treatments.
