There’s finally a safe, prescription-free solution for targeting acne at its source, and Belle Marin Aesthetic Medicine is the first in Marin County to offer it! AviClear™ is the first and only FDA-cleared energy device for the treatment of mild to severe acne. Engineered with an innovative wavelength, AviClear significantly eliminates acne and delivers long-lasting results in just three 30-minute sessions.
Here’s a closer look at the inner working of this revolutionary laser acne treatment:
What makes AviClear different from traditional acne treatments?
To better understand AviClear, we must first understand how breakouts happen. Acne forms when there is an overproduction of sebum, the oily substance in your pores, in the sebaceous glands. An active breakout typically occurs when a combination of sebum, dead skin cells and debris are trapped beneath the skin’s surface. Unlike most other acne treatments that don’t target the production of sebum, AviClear selectively targets sebum-producing cells and suppresses the sebaceous glands to reduce active acne. AviClear is also free of harmful side effects, free of chemicals and toxins and safe for all skin types and tones.
How exactly does AviClear work?
AviClear laser treatment treats acne at the source with its 1726 nm wavelength. By selectively targeting and suppressing the sebaceous gland, AviClear can reduce active acne safely and effectively without the need for prescription medications. It is also designed with patient comfort in mind, using AviCool™ contact cooling for an optimal treatment experience.
What were the results of AviClear clinical trials?
Clinical trials show that future breakout episodes are shorter, less intense and more infrequent following AviClear treatments. What’s more, AviClear’s acne clearance results continued to improve over time, demonstrating its long-term efficacy.
Is there any downtime with AviClear?
There is minimal downtime and side effects with AviClear. You may notice slight redness or a mild acne flareup post treatment, but this is normal and should fade quickly. Otherwise, you can resume your daily activities after your AviClear session.
How many treatments do I need to see optimal results?
AviClear is a three, 30-minute treatment protocol spaced two to four weeks apart. In clinical trials, 80% of patients treated with AviClear saw at least half of their acne clear in the first three months following their last treatment.
