What is AviClear™?

AviClear™ is the first and original FDA-cleared energy device for treating mild, moderate, and severe facial acne. By using the power of laser light to target and suppress sebaceous glands selectively, AviClear™ eliminates acne at the source without needing prescription medications. This treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and tones, requiring three 30-minute sessions.

How does AviClear™ work?

To better understand how AviClear™ works, it’s essential to know how acne works. Acne forms when sebum, the oily substance on your skin, combines with dead skin cells to clog your pores.

Some acne facts include:

  • Acne is not a short-term condition
  • It is not caused by dirty skin
  • Scrubbing your skin many times a day will not get rid of acne
  • Genetics can play a role in whether you develop acne and how severe it is

The AviClear™ laser safely and effectively delivers an energy beam to the skin to target and suppress the sebaceous gland, preventing pimples from forming in the first place. And to ensure patient comfort, the laser features AviCool™ cooling technology to maintain the skin’s temperature during treatment.

Am I a good candidate for AviClear™?

Dr. Grossman would love to help you treat your acne with AviClear™. The best candidates are teens and adults who:

  • Want to control acne mild to severe breakouts
  • Are experiencing cystic, inflammatory, or hormonal acne
  • Want to prevent acne from developing

AviClear™ is also a promising alternative for patients who have already tried Isotretinoin or prescription antibiotics and want a less invasive treatment for their more persistent symptoms. While the laser is FDA-approved for mild, moderate, and severe acne, the moderate and severe groups are most quickly switching to AviClear™.

What are the benefits of AviClear™?

AviClear™ can treat all skin tones and all severities of acne breakouts. This sets AviClear™ apart from many other laser acne treatments that target melanin and cannot treat darker skin tones. Because the device targets sebaceous glands, it’s a safe option for everyone.

Clinical trials have shown that, following a proper course of AviClear™ treatments, future breakouts are:

  • Less frequent
  • Less severe
  • Shorter overall

AviClear™ reimagines how acne is treated in the following ways:

  • Three 30-minute treatment sessions quickly eliminate acne
  • No downtime
  • Equipped with exclusive AviCool™ sapphire skin cooling and smart sensors, maximizing patient comfort and safety

AviClear™ Results

Like most acne laser treatments, AviClear™ requires multiple sessions to see optimal and long-lasting results. After three 30-minute treatments spaced out at 3-4 week intervals, you’ll see a significant improvement in your skin’s appearance. Best of all, these results should continually improve.

AviClear™ treatment requires virtually zero downtime. You can get on with your life immediately after treatment and won’t need to change your skin-care routines drastically. You may experience mild swelling or redness, which will subside shortly after treatment.

After AviClear™ sessions, avoid excessive sun exposure and wear sunscreen daily. Avoid occlusive agents, such as Vaseline or Aquaphor.
