Acne Control and innovation with AviClear

Acne blemishes prevent your skin from looking its best, and can leave you feeling bad about yourself. If you think your acne prevention routine could use some adjustment for maximum effectiveness, you should know more about AviClear™, an exciting new option for acne treatment and prevention from Cutera.

Could you benefit from switching to AviClear for acne control? Here’s what you need to know.

The science of acne break-outs

Acne blemishes can be blackheads, whiteheads, or cysts. Scarring can result from severe acne, causing lasting skin damage.

Acne is caused by multiple factors in, and on, your skin. Dead skin cells combine with sebum, an oily substance naturally produced by your skin, resulting in clogged pores. Harmful bacteria on the surface of your skin take advantage of clogs, and an acne outbreak follows.

The real results you can achieve with AviClear have to do with the way this treatment option gets right to the source of acne problems. Unlike other acne treatments, AviClear targets your production of sebum for game-changing results.

How AviClear effectively addresses acne

Your provider at Apex Dermatology uses AviClear treatment to target your oil glands, also known as sebaceous glands. The AviClear method uses the power of 1726 nm wavelength laser light to reduce your sebum production, suppressing the function of these glands.

Most patients find AviClear treatment tolerable. You might notice a gentle snapping sensation during treatment, similar to being lightly snapped with a rubber band. During your treatment session, exclusive AviCool™ skin cooling and sensory control technology keeps you comfortable.

AviClear is the first and only energy device approved by the US FDA to treat mild to severe acne! This treatment is safe, effective, and comfortable for patients with all skin types. A treatment session lasts for about half an hour. You may need a series of three treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to see your best results.

Improve your skin with AviClear

In clinical trials, AviClear shows significant promise as a treatment to reduce intensity, frequency, and duration of acne flare-ups. And, your results with AviClear continue to get better over time, working over the long term to keep your skin clear and blemish-free.

If you’ve been using skin washes or prescription medications to address acne out-breaks, switching to AviClear can simplify your skin care routine and give you better results than ever. With AviClear, more than 90% of treated patients see improvement after just six months.
