What is AviClear?

AviClear, developed by CUTERA®, is the first and only FDA-cleared energy device for treating mild, moderate, and severe acne on the face. While other acne treatments address some causes and symptoms, AviClear goes above and beyond to prevent pimples from ever forming.

With three 60-minute sessions, you’ll notice significant improvements in your facial skin over a few months, with no prescription needed. As an added benefit, this acne treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and tones.

How does AviClear work?

AviClear is a laser acne treatment developed by CUTERA®. The innovative laser treats acne at its source by targeting and suppressing the sebaceous gland. Three sessions are highly recommended to adequately debulk the sebaceous glands. This gland secretes the oily sebum that combines with dead skin cells, clogging pores and causing breakouts. And because AviClear was designed with patient comfort in mind, the device features proprietary contact cooling (AviCool™) to help maintain the skin’s temperature during treatment.

AviClear is not recommend as an acne spot treatment, as this technique can lead to worsening acne in other areas of the face/treated area.

AviClear benefits

The defining benefit of AviClear is that it can treat all skin tones and types, no matter the severity of a particular breakout.

  • Reducing existing acne
  • Following a proper course of AviClear treatments, future breakouts are less frequent, less severe, and shorter overall

Am I a good candidate for AviClear?

Nearly anyone struggling with acne is a good candidate for AviClear in Newport Beach. There is no suggested treatment age, so teens and older adults can enjoy the treatment. AviClear is designed to treat mild to severe acne of all types, including:

  • Cystic
  • Inflammatory
  • Hormonal

More importantly, all skin tones are candidates for AviClear. Many other laser acne treatments can only safely treat certain skin tones because they target melanin, but AviClear avoids melanin only to treat sebaceous glands.

AviClear results

Approximately nine out of ten patients reported being satisfied or very satisfied with their AviClear results.

Multiple treatment sessions are necessary to see optimal and long-lasting results; ideally, three treatments lasting thirty minutes each spaced out at 3-4 week intervals. A complete round of AviClear treatments takes up to three months, after which approximately 90+% of AviClear patients reported a significant improvement in their skin’s appearance.

87% of patients treated with AviClear saw at least half of their acne resolve six months following treatment. These results continued to improve with time, years after they finished treatment sessions.

For optimal results, avoid sun exposure to the area treated prior to and throughout the duration of treatment.
