The American Academy of Dermatology states that in the United States, the most common skin condition is acne. There may be as many as 50 million Americans who deal with it every year. About 85% of people between the ages of 12 and 24 will deal with acne. Unfortunately, acne doesn’t disappear completely once people turn 25. Between 40 to 54% of people over the age of 25 will deal with some form of acne. Acne is a growing concern in people in their 30s and up.

What is AviClear?


AviClear is the latest use of laser technology. It is created for use in clearing mild to severe forms of acne. This is the only FDA-approved energy device for this kind of treatment. It is safe and no prescription is required. The AviClear device uses an innovative wavelength that helps to significantly eliminate acne.

Clinical trials have shown that AviClear treatments can reduce the frequency of acne breakouts. The breakouts are less intense and shorter in duration.

How does AviClear work?


The body can overproduce sebum which in turn is the leading cause of acne. AviClear targets the sebaceous glands where acne starts. The unique laser treatment uses a 1726 nm wavelength to target the sebaceous gland and down-regulate it. This reduces acne safely without any need for prescription medications.

Have clinical trials been done for AviClear?


Clinical trials show that AviClear reduces acne. They have shown that the AviClear treatment reduced acne by half in 80% of the patients. The trials have also shown that the acne outbreaks were shorter, less frequent, and less intense. 87% of the people in the trials said they were satisfied or very satisfied at the end of the third month. The trials found no significant negative events.

How does AviClear feel?


The AviClear treatment is designed to be comfortable for the patient. AviClear has created the exclusive AviCool skin cooling system. This is designed to maintain a normal skin temperature during the treatment.

During the treatment, you might experience a slight snapping sensation. In the trials, patients didn’t need any type of pain mitigation or request that the sessions be stopped.

Is there downtime with AviClear?


There is no need for downtime and minimal side effects with AviClear treatments. You may have some slight redness after the treatment. A mild flare-up of acne after the treatment is also a possibility. This is normal and fades quickly. You can resume your normal activities right after your session.
