What is AviClear

Discover the cutting-edge solution for Active Acne, the first and original FDA-cleared energy device crafted to effectively treat mild to severe acne. AviClear utilizes a 1726 nm wavelength to address acne at its source, selectively targeting and gently suppressing the sebaceous gland. With patient comfort as a top priority, AviClear is equipped with the advanced AviCool™ contact cooling system, ensuring a comfortable and safe treatment experience.

What is acne?

Sebaceous glands are intricately connected to each hair follicle and serve a vital role in maintaining skin health. These glands produce sebum, an oily substance that acts as a natural lubricant and protector for both the hair and skin. During puberty, hormonal changes, specifically the increase in androgens, stimulate the enlargement of the skin’s sebaceous glands. While sebum is essential, an excess production can lead to pore blockages. This excess sebum combines with dead skin cells and the presence of bacteria (C. Acnes), ultimately causing eruptions on the skin’s surface. These obstructions manifest as common acne-related issues, including blackheads, whiteheads, nodules, and various types of pimples, affecting the clarity and smoothness of the skin.

How it works

The primary objective of this treatment is to precisely target and address the sebaceous glands without inflicting any thermal harm on the neighboring tissues. Through the use of a 1726 nm wavelength, the treatment can selectively downregulate the sebaceous gland while preserving the integrity of other anatomical structures. Specifically, this wavelength safeguards the sebublasts, which form the outer wall of the sebaceous gland, ensuring their protection, while effectively damaging the sebocytes within. This meticulous approach allows for the effective treatment of the sebaceous glands responsible for acne without causing harm to the surrounding tissue, resulting in a safe and efficient therapeutic experience.

FAQ

Am I a Candidate?

AviClear is ideal for patients seeking a secure and efficient alternative to conventional acne therapies. It boasts a remarkable safety profile, suitable for individuals of diverse skin types and tones, and is suitable for use by both adolescents and adults.

What does the treatment feel like?

While undergoing the treatment, you may experience a gentle snapping sensation. Clinical studies have shown that patients generally tolerate this sensation quite comfortably and express high levels of satisfaction with both the treatment experience and the resulting outcomes.

What should I expect after treatment?

Following an AviClear treatment session, you may encounter mild redness and swelling, which can persist for a period ranging from one hour to two days. Occasional acne flare-ups may also arise, but it's important to note that these are temporary and should naturally subside over time. To support your skin's recovery and protection, we strongly advise applying SPF 30+ sunblock on a daily basis throughout your entire treatment series.

When will I see results?

Anticipate noticing visible improvements approximately 3-4 weeks following your final treatment session. A year after the last treatment session is usually when patients see the most improvement in their skin. It's worth mentioning that these results have the potential to further enhance over time, providing ongoing benefits.
