AviClear Acne 101: Everything You Need to Know About This Innovative Skincare Solution

Do you battle acne on a regular basis? Does it negatively impact your self-esteem? If so, you’re not alone. Acne is the most prevalent skin disorder in the United States, affecting up to 80% of people at some point in their lifetime. It is also not just a curse for teenagers. Many men and women spend much of their adult lives suffering from outbreaks.

Although acne treatment has advanced over time, patients continue to be limited by their options. Dermatologists commonly prescribed topicals, such as tretinoin and benzoyl peroxide, as well as other topical or oral antibiotics, hormonal therapy, and even Accutane with varying results. These treatment options can be messy, time-consuming, and excessively harsh on the skin. They frequently unintentionally result in dryness, peeling, and inflammation, which can be just as demoralizing as the acne they were meant to treat.

Natural remedies without harsh side effects have, up to now, proved elusive. With the arrival of AviClear, we now have a revolutionary medication-free solution for treating acne.

If stubborn acne has negatively impacted your life, it’s time to learn more about AviClear.

What Is Acne?

Acne is a common skin condition that can significantly impact an individual’s self-esteem and emotional health. Pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads form as a result of the hair follicles becoming clogged with oil and dead skin cells. Acne can affect people of various ages, genders, and skin types, and it can appear on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. Acne can be irritating and painful and it can also permanently discolor and scar the skin.

What Is AviClear?

AviClear is the first device cleared by the FDA that effectively treats mild to severe acne. Via an inclusive acne laser, it uses breakthrough technology that has transformed the way acne is treated. It effectively shrinks your oil glands to clear up your pimples and prevent new ones from forming. This innovative skincare solution is suitable for all skin types, requires no downtime, has minimal side effects, and provides lasting results after just three easy 30-minute treatment sessions.

How Does AviClear Work?

AviClear is only performed in an approved provider’s office. The majority of acne therapies don’t address sebum production; instead, they focus on other acne-causing factors. In contrast, AviClear uses the power of light to target and repress sebaceous glands in a purposeful manner, eliminating acne from its root.

The Protocol for AviClear

The majority of patients only require three, 30-minute AviClear treatment sessions, which are spaced four to six weeks apart. It’s incredibly comfortable with only a slight snapping sensation. Most patients tolerate it very well. Most do not report pain during or after AviClear treatments.

During treatment, your skin’s temperature is maintained with AviClear’s unique AviCool skin cooling and sensory controls, ensuring a pleasant experience. Typically, there is no need for pain mitigation or the need to stop a treatment session. 

When to Expect AviClear ResultsAviClear

Treatments with AviClear don’t produce results right away. The majority of patients will experience improvement four to six weeks after their initial treatment session. Numerous studies have demonstrated that three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart yield the best effects.

The Data Behind AviClear

In clinical studies, 90% of patients responded to their AviClear treatment with 80% of patients reporting at least 50% clearer skin after three treatments. At least half of the acne in 87% of AviClear patients had disappeared by six months following treatment. Patients may continue to see improvements with time, even many months after the completion of treatment sessions. In fact, nine out of ten patients reported being satisfied or very satisfied with their outcomes.

Overall, it’s clear that after just three monthly, well-tolerated, full-face treatments, patients are seeing results and are overwhelmingly satisfied. 

The Short-term and Long-term Benefits of AviClear include:

  • By safely and selectively targeting and inhibiting the sebaceous gland, AviClear addresses acne at its root.
  • It delivers laser energy in combination with AviCool, a unique feature designed to deliver a cool and more comfortable treatment without the need for an anesthetic.
  • There were no unanticipated or serious side effects after treatment.
  • AviClear was shown to achieve acne-clearing results without prescription medication.
  • After three easy sessions, the laser greatly reduces the severity and frequency of acne.
  • One of the few treatments that allow your skin to keep getting better even after you stop using it. 
  • Adolescents and adults with mild, moderate, or severe acne of various skin tones can benefit from using AviClear.
  • Skin texture may improve with ultimately less acne scarring.

Are There Side Effects of AviClear? 

Most conventional acne treatments are full of chemicals and toxins, which can be unsettling. AviClear, on the other hand, is chemical-free and toxin-free with almost no harmful side effects reported during clinical trials. Following treatment, mild symptoms such as inflammation, redness, and flare-ups can occur but are short-lived and quickly fade. In contrast, Accutane, which is sometimes prescribed for severe acne, has the potential to cause harsh side effects that can be quite troublesome and long-lasting, such as dry eyes, high cholesterol, weight gain, fertility issues, and even organ damage. 

Additional Skincare Tips

AviClear’s treatment and results simply cannot be replicated at home, but that doesn’t mean you can’t take steps to help keep your skin clear. Maximize the health of your skin by adhering to the following sensible skin-care guidelines:

  • Use a gentle cleanser when washing your skin
