How to Get Rid of Acne With AviClear™

If you struggle with acne, you may have tried many ways to manage it. A new and extremely effective method is AviClear™, the first energy treatment for acne. This non-invasive laser treatment reduces oil production for long-lasting clear skin without drugs or harsh topical products. 

What is AviClear™? 

Acne occurs when pores become blocked with a combination of oil, debris, and dead skin cells. Bacteria that normally live on the face can take up residence in these clogged pores, triggering inflammation, redness, and soreness. FDA-cleared AviClear™ stops this process by decreasing oil production. As a result, you can experience fewer, less severe breakouts.

How to Get Rid of Acne With AviClear™

AviClear™ treats acne using laser energy that targets oil-producing sebaceous glands. It uses a wavelength that only affects the sebaceous glands, leaving the skin untouched. The treatment causes the glands to become less active. As a result, you will see fewer blackheads, whiteheads, and other blemishes. AviClear™ can even treat deep cystic acne by stopping the pore-clogging oil that starts the inflammatory process. You can use AviClear™ with your other acne management products to dramatically improve their results. 

What is AviClear™ Treatment Like?

You may feel a mild stinging or heat sensation during your AviClear™ treatment. The AviCool™ sapphire cooling system maintains a comfortable temperature for your skin. Numbing is not required. You will have three AviClear™ sessions spaced three to four weeks apart. After these three treatments, the laser will have targeted all your sebaceous glands. 

What Results Will I See With AviClear™?

You will start to notice results as your skin’s oil levels decrease. Over 80% of people who get AviClear™ have a significant acne improvement within three months. You will notice that you break out less often, and any breakouts that occur will be shorter and less severe. Most people still have noticeably less acne after nine months or more.

Is There Any Downtime With AviClear™?

AviClear™ has none of the side effects of acne medications. You can resume your usual activities after treatment. Mild redness and swelling can last a day or two, and some people experience a breakout a week or two after treatment. This will be less noticeable after the second and third treatments.

AviClear™ is safe and effective for almost anyone. It is FDA-cleared to treat mild to severe facial acne on all skin tones. With no downtime and quick 30-minute treatments, AviClear™ fits into any schedule. Anyone who wants to reduce acne breakouts may be a good candidate.
