What are the Benefits of AviClear®?

Each person experiences acne differently. It can range from a mild annoyance to a life-changing condition that leaves unsightly scars. AviClear® offers a new solution for mild to severe acne. This effective treatment provides acne relief without medications or unpleasant side effects. It works for almost anyone and has numerous benefits over other acne treatments. 

What is Acne?

The appearance of acne can range from clogged pores (blackheads and whiteheads) to deep, inflamed nodules that can leave scars. Acne results from the overproduction of sebum in your sebaceous glands. This excess sebum combines with dead skin cells and other debris, clogging your pores. Bacteria can thrive in this environment and cause inflammation, leading to more discomfort and potential scarring. Fortunately, you have new treatment options that can control almost any type and severity of acne with only a few treatments. 

How Can I Treat My Acne?

At-home treatments for acne often include topical treatments like salicylic and glycolic acids or benzoyl peroxide. These can help with acne by killing inflammation-causing bacteria or gently exfoliating pore-clogging dead skin cells. They may work well enough for some people. Others may try prescription medications such as antibiotics or oral retinoids, which can have unpleasant side effects such as irritatingly dy skin and sun sensitivity. AviClear® is your long-lasting, effective acne treatment option. It targets the underlying cause of acne to bring it under control and keep your skin clear. 

How Does AviClear® Work for Acne Treatment?

AviClear® is a laser treatment that uses a 1726 nm laser to target the sebaceous glands. The laser energy travels through the skin without harming it. The sebaceous glands absorb the laser energy, heating them enough to deactivate them. These deactivated glands produce little to no sebum, dramatically reducing your acne frequency and severity. A series of treatments can treat even deep cystic acne that resists other methods. These sebaceous glands can remain inactive for a year or more, giving you relief that does not require you to think about it daily. 

What are the Benefits of AviClear®?

AviClear® has many benefits over traditional acne treatments. It is more effective than topical treatments and has fewer side effects than oral medications. Due to these benefits, your Essential Med Aesthetics team recommends AviClear® for many people. 

Fits Your Schedule

Topical acne control often requires a time-consuming daily routine of products and oral medications must be taken daily. AviClear® treatments take about 30 minutes and allow you to return to your usual activities. After a series of treatments, you may only need maintenance sessions once or twice a year. As a result, you can spend almost all your time thinking about anything but your acne treatment.

No Side Effects or Medications

AviClear® appeals to many people who want to avoid medications or are unhappy with their side effects. It offers long-lasting results with no excessive skin dryness, irritation, and sensitivity to sunlight. Most effects from AviClear® last less than a day, making it much easier on your skin and lifestyle. 

Powerful Results

AviClear® results are powerful and long-lasting. 92% of people who had AviClear® had at least half their acne cleared after one year. Breakouts occur less often, are less severe, and resolve more quickly. You will see less deep, inflamed acne, greatly reducing the development of difficult-to-treat acne scars. 

Works With Other Treatments

While AviClear® will greatly reduce breakouts, you may want to combine it with other treatments to achieve maximum acne clearance. Fortunately, AviClear® is safe to use with all topical and prescription treatments. If you have products that have given you some relief from your acne, you can keep using them along with AviClear® to see your best results. 

What is an AviClear® Laser Treatment Like?

Your 30-minute AviClear® treatment fits conveniently into most schedules. Your Essential Med Aesthetics provider will prepare your skin, then use the AviClear® handpiece to transfer the laser energy. Most people feel little to no discomfort and do not need numbing cream. A cooling system prevents your skin from overheating, ensuring your comfort throughout the treatment.

Is There Any Downtime With AviClear®?

AviClear® uses a cooling system and a laser wavelength that protects the skin to ensure your skin stays safe throughout your treatment. As a result, there is no downtime, and you can return to your usual activities immediately. Any mild redness will disappear within a few hours. Like all laser treatments, AviClear® will make your skin sun-sensitive, so use quality sunscreen and avoid excessive sun exposure between and after treatments. 

What Results Will I See From AviClear®?

Some people may notice a decrease in acne after one AviClear® treatment, while others may experience a minor breakout as a response. AviClear® results become more obvious after several weeks to months. You will notice that you do not have as many breakouts, they are not as inflamed or severe, and they fade more quickly. AviClear® results can last a year or more. Many people have maintenance treatments once or twice a year to keep their sebaceous glands under control. 

Am I a Good Candidate for AviClear® Acne Treatment?

AviClear® is safe and effective for all skin types and tones. Individuals of almost any age can benefit, including adults dealing with acne problems. Good candidates are looking for a long-lasting, effective acne solution. You might be a good candidate for AviClear® if:
