Long-term Resolution of Acne Across All Skin Types
Clinical trials demonstrate that current and future breakout episodes are shorter, less intense, and more infrequent following the AviClear procedure. Further, acne clearance results continue to improve over time, demonstrating the long-term efficacy of this novel treatment.
Target Acne at the Source
Engineered with an innovative wavelength, AviClear selectively targets and down-regulates the sebaceous glands to reduce active acne. Featuring an intuitive user interface and unique energy delivery, AviClear eliminates acne at the source without the need for prescription medications.
Despite acne being the most common skin issue in the nation — up to 50 million Americans struggle with it — there’s yet to be a solution that can work for everyone. While some mild cases can be effectively treated with skin-care products like cleansers, toners, and creams, the breakout journey of many people with moderate and severe cases can be long.
Many of those with acne end up turning to lasers, prescription topicals, or oral medications like Isotretinoin (colloquially known as Accutane), which can carry a long list of harsh side effects and hefty price tags. And many people — due to skin tone, age, or other medical issues — aren’t even candidates for these treatments in the first place.
But in March 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a breakthrough in-office treatment that may change the way we treat acne for good: AviClear. Here’s everything you need to know about the game-changing new laser.
What is Aviclear, and how does it work?
AviClear is the first and only FDA-cleared energy device for the treatment of mild to severe acne. The laser is the first of its kind, as it can be used to treat all skin tones, no matter how minor or major a patient’s breakouts may be. How? By selectively targeting and suppressing the sebaceous glands, which produce the sebum (the oily substance on the skin) that can cause and intensify breakouts.
“Overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands is the leading cause of acne,” explains Dendy Engelman, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City. As dead skin cells and pollution mixes with the skin’s sebum, pores become clogged and can create and promote a cycle of breakouts. In a series of three 30-minute sessions — once per month for three consecutive months — AviClear uses a 1726nm wavelength (a type of laser frequency) to treat these glands so they produce less sebum. That, in turn, makes your current and future breakouts shorter, less intense, and more infrequent.
