AviClear™ is a revolutionary new treatment from Cutera®. AviClear™ is the first and only FDA-cleared laser device for the treatment of mild to severe acne in adolescents and adults. The laser is the first of its kind, as it can be used to treat all skin tones, no matter how minor or major a patient’s breakouts.
AviClear™ laser acne treatment specifically targets the source of the oily substance on your skin. After treatment, your skin will produce less oil, and your acne will get better and stay better.
AviClear™ features Cutera’s exclusive new cooling technology AviCool™ to ensure the most comfortable experience. The treatment is safe for all skin tones. Additionally, unlike traditional acne treatments, which require many sessions, AviClear™ features just three 30 minutes sessions.
AviClear™ not only resolves current acne but also prevents future breakouts by regulating the sebaceous glands for long-term success. In addition to reducing existing acne, clinical trials show that future breakout episodes are shorter, less intense, and more infrequent following the treatment. In clinical studies, 91 percent of patients responded to treatment and 80 percent saw at least half of their acne clear, and 9 out of 10 patients were satisfied or very satisfied with their results one month after treatment.
Are There Risks or Side Effects?
The side effects for AviClear are virtually nill.
Unlike traditional drug treatments, AviClear™ does not require any drugs, chemicals or toxins. It also does not have the risks associated with acne medications.
Clinical trials did not show any reportable adverse events with the treatment. Some people might get an acne flare-up immediately following the procedure but with each treatment flare-ups should lessen, and following the third treatment, patients will see significant clearance in their skin.
During treatment, patients may notice a slight snapping sensation, and the laser’s skin cooling and sensory control mechanism maintains the skin’s temperature, so the treatment is more comfortable.
How Many Treatments Are Necessary
The AviClear™ laser acne treatment protocol requires three 30-minute treatments, which are spaced out at 4-5 week intervals.
What Aftercare is Needed?
AviClear™ has no downtime, and you can resume your day as planned following treatment. Your skin-care routine won’t need to change much, either. Following the treatment, you will need to make sure to wear sunscreen when going outdoors and avoid occlusive agents like Vaseline or Aquaphor post-treatment.
Are the Results Permanent?
Yes. The results of AviClear™ have been shown to be equal to Accutane, if not better. Patients will see improvements in acne continuing after 12 months of treatment with no increase in acne flares or returning to baseline. It is a long lasting and effective treatment, without the harsh side effects of drugs.
Am I a Good Candidate for AviClear™?
Yes. AviClear™ is designed to treat mild to severe acne and all types of acne (e.g., cystic, inflammatory and hormonal), on all skin types; so virtually anyone who struggles with acne can benefit from this laser treatment.
