How Much is AviClear™?
The road to clear skin can be frustrating, tedious, and disheartening. As you sit on your mountain of skincare products that promised a remedy for acne-free skin but did not deliver, you may ask yourself, is there really a long-term solution for mild to severe or hormonal acne? AviClear™ is the latest innovation in acne treatment and can help treat your acne for good.
What is AviClear™and How Does it Work?
AviClear™ is the first laser device to be FDA cleared for treating mild to severe acne. It can shorten current and future breakouts while also minimizing their intensity and frequency. AviClear™ continues to produce results over time, meaning treatment is effective and long-lasting, with many patients remaining satisfied with their results several months after their treatment.
AviClear™ is a laser device with a 1726 nm wavelength that selectively targets the sebaceous glands in your skin. These glands produce sebum, an oil that keeps the skin moisturized. When the sebaceous glands produce excess sebum, bacteria and dead skin cells can clog the pores and lead to inflammation. AviClear™ targets these glands without harming the skin, providing a safe and effective treatment for clients.
At Essential Med Aesthetics, we are proud to be one of the first providers in the San Antonio area to offer AviClear™ as a remedy for your acne. You can learn more about the technology behind AviClear™ and how it can treat your acne by visiting our office for a consultation.
How Much is AviClear™?
AviClear™ is one of the latest innovations for treating acne and has only just begun to be offered by practices, so there is not yet enough data to accurately estimate the average cost of treatment for clients interested in the procedure. Like any treatment, the cost will also vary based on your location, your provider’s experience, and various other factors.
AviClear™ is an efficient and long-term substitution for other forms of acne treatment and is a worthwhile investment that can save you from spending on ineffective products and procedures. The best way to learn more about what the cost of AviClear™ may look like for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Freda Cobbinah at Essential Med Clinic & Aesthetics.
What are the Benefits of AviClear™?
Several dermatologists have expressed excitement over what AviClear™ can do for their patients’ acne. AviClear™ can treat mild to severe acne and provides fast and safe results for patients of all ages and skin types. AviClear™ is gentle enough on the skin that even clients struggling with an active breakout can undergo treatment, and it is also effective for patients of all skin tones.
Effective for All Skin Tones
Unlike some other acne treatments, AviClear™ is effective for all skin tones, making it an excellent solution for anyone who wants to finally put an end to their struggle with mild to severe acne. AviClear™’s unique wavelength only affects the sebaceous glands in the skin, not the pigment, which means there is no need to worry about the laser causing hyperpigmentation.
Because AviClear™ only targets the sebaceous glands and not the skin, there is no downtime associated with treatment, meaning you can return to your routine immediately after your appointment. You may experience mild redness after your procedure, but this typically fades within a few hours.
Just like with any other laser treatment, we recommend that you use a non-comedogenic sunscreen at all times after treatment to protect your skin from damage. We are happy to assist patients with finding a non-comedogenic sunscreen product suitable for them.
Avoid the Need for Acne Medications
Many medications that aim to treat acne can cause side effects such as dry skin, swelling, or even an upset stomach and dizziness. Clinical trials with AviClear™ did not show any adverse effects in patients, making it a valuable alternative for those who want to avoid the side effects of acne medications.
Designed With Patient Comfort In Mind
AviClear™ is enhanced with AviCool™ to maintain the skin’s temperature during treatment to help make the experience as comfortable as possible. The procedure causes little to no discomfort, and many patients do not require any kind of numbing.

What is Treatment With AviClear™ Like?
Before your treatment, one of our professionals will cleanse and prep the skin. Some patients report a warm or tingling sensation as the AviClear™ device moves over the treatment area.
On average, the procedure takes 15 to 30 minutes, and you will be able to return to your routine right after your appointment. It is common to experience minor breakouts after AviClear™ treatment, but these will subside after the second or third session.
How Long Will the Results of AviClear™ Last?
AviClear™ is an excellent option for those looking for a long-lasting treatment for their acne. After treatment, you will notice that your breakouts will become less frequent and less severe. Most patients will see optimal results after three treatments, but every patient’s skin is unique, so this will vary. Typically, patients will see improvements in their skin within a few months of their treatment, and full results may appear within six months.
Results with AviClear™are long-lasting, with many patients being pleased with their results after six months and some early data showing patients still being satisfied after nine months. However, it may be necessary for patients to receive occasional maintenance treatments to continue to enjoy their clearer skin.
AviClear™ is safe to combine with other procedures, and you may wish to do so to aid the effectiveness of your treatment. By combining AviClear™ with other acne treatments, you can remedy severe and even treatment-resistant acne.
Who is a Good Candidate for AviClear™?
AviClear™ is fit for all ages and skin tones and is suitable for most individuals. You may be a good candidate for AviClear™ if other forms of skincare treatments have not provided you with desirable results, if you wish to avoid the side effects of acne medications and treatments, or are looking for an alternative to more invasive procedures.
