Pimples. Blemishes. Spots. Acne. Whatever you call them, we don’t want them around. They get in the way of feeling confident about our looks but can also be painful and leave scars behind for a long time. Dozens of methods can help reduce breakouts and their effects, ranging from topical creams to oral medications. However, many of these treatments can have harsh side effects and may not be suitable for everyone.
One solution gaining much popularity in recent years is the AviClear laser treatment. This article will explore its benefits and how it can help you win the battle against acne.
What Is AviClear?
AviClear is the first FDA-approved laser for mild, moderate and severe acne, is safe for all skin types, and offers a 90% reduction of cystic acne in 6 months with benefits that last beyond 12 months.
Because of the proven results, AviClear was chosen for Cosmopolitan’s Top 10 Acne Fighting Treatments of 2022 and named ‘Biggest Acne Breakthrough in Years’ by NewBeauty.
How Does AviClear Work?
AviClear treats mild to severe acne by targeting the source of the oil on your skin with a unique laser technology. Because of the wavelength it uses, the sebaceous oil glands in your skin are selectively targeted to treat acne at its source. This revolutionary acne treatment utilizes a combination of medical-grade blue and red LED light therapy and a unique topical gel.
Blue lights kill the bacteria that cause acne, while red lights help to reduce inflammation and promote healing. The topical gel used in the AviClear Acne Treatment is specially formulated with a blend of natural and medical-grade ingredients that work together to unclog pores, reduce oil production, and promote healthy skin cell turnover. The result is clearer, healthier and more radiant skin.
What Is an AviClear Treatment Like?
AviClear is pain-free, drug-free and suitable for all skin types. It’s noninvasive, meaning it does not involve surgical procedures or incisions. This makes it a safe and effective option for anyone who wants to get rid of acne without undergoing surgery or taking prescription medications.
The treatment process begins with a thorough skin analysis to determine the type and severity of acne. Experts at California Dermatology Care will create your customized treatment plan, taking into account the type and severity of your acne and underlying health, lifestyle or nutritional factors contributing to the problem.
During the treatment, you’ll be comfortably seated while blue and red LED lights are directed at your affected skin. A topical gel is also applied to the skin to enhance the effectiveness of the treatment. Most patients typically undergo three treatment sessions spaced four-six weeks apart. This allows enough healing time for your skin to process changes in oil production and for your results to become visible. The sessions are quick and painless, taking only 30 minutes each.
After your appointment, you can go about your day without interruption, provided you first avoid vigorous sweating and direct sunlight on the treated areas. You’ll have aftercare products and straightforward instructions to help you maintain your results without worrying about changing your lifestyle.
Benefits of AviClear for Acne
One of the many benefits of the AviClear Acne Treatment is that the treatment targets and suppresses sebaceous glands to eliminate acne without the need for prescription medications. Additionally, patients can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment, as no downtime is required.
AviClear is the first and only FDA-cleared energy device for treating mild to severe acne. Its unique 1726 nm wavelength selectively targets and suppresses sebaceous glands safely and effectively. After just three quick sessions, the laser significantly reduces the severity and frequency of acne, and patients can expect to see continued improvement over time.
AviClear delivers laser energy in combination with AviCool™. This unique feature ensures a more comfortable treatment without the need for an anesthetic by maintaining a comfortable skin temperature during the procedure. While some patients may feel a slight snapping sensation, clinical studies have shown that most people tolerate the treatment well and do not require pain mitigation or a pause in the session.
This noninvasive treatment has been shown to achieve acne-clearing results without the use of prescription medication. Furthermore, AviClear is one of the few treatments that can continue to improve acne clearance results even after patients stop the treatment.
In summary, AviClear offers a safe, effective, and comfortable solution for acne treatment. Patients can quickly resume their daily activities with no lifestyle changes and no downtime. If you’re looking for a noninvasive solution for your acne, AviClear may be the perfect choice for you.
When Will You See the Results?
87% of patients treated with AviClear saw at least half of their acne resolve at six months following treatment. And results may continue to improve for several months after your final treatment session. Many patients see a significant improvement in their acne after just one treatment, with optimal results typically achieved after a series of treatments.
The amount of treatments required depends on your acne’s severity, but our California Dermatology Care team will develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your specific needs.
