How It Works

AviClear – the first and only FDA-cleared energy device for treatment of mild, moderate and severe acne. Significantly eliminate acne in just three 30-minute treatment sessions. This first-of-its-kind acne laser treatment uses a 1726 nanometer wavelength to target the sebaceous gland, the place where sebum—an oily substance that causes acne—is produced.

The concentrated laser energy treats acne at its source by decreasing the function of the sebaceous gland, ensuring a smaller amount of sebum is produced over time to minimize the possibility of clogged pores and inflammation. AviClear provides a long-term, non-invasive solution to treat facial acne vulgaris for all skin tones.

Each AviClear treatment session takes 15 – 30 minutes and features smart sensor technology (AviCool) that helps keep the skin’s temperature cool and comfortable. Most patients can resume their daily activities right away without any major side effects. It is recommended to receive a minimum of 3 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, for superior results.

How Acne is Formed

To understand how AviClear works, it’s important to understand how breakouts happen. Acne is formed when follicles or pores underneath the skin become blocked by excess oils, accumulated dead skin cells, or other trapped bacteria. It is often found in areas where more sebaceous glands are located, such as the face, neck, chest, or back. The severity of the acne depends on a variety of factors, such as fluctuating hormones, stress levels, medications, or even your diet. Most acne treatments target other things that cause acne, but not the production of sebum. And that makes a big difference in your results. The other treatments won’t provide long lasting improvement, and acne will return if you stop treatment or don’t use it every day.

Many people experience the consequences of acne in their lifetime, typically as young adults. The American Academy of Dermatology states that acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S., impacting around 50 million people per year.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is AviClear?
AviClear is a cutting-edge laser treatment device developed by Cutera that reduces mild to severe facial acne long-term for all age groups and skin types
How does AviClear Work?
The 1726 nm wavelength of the laser heats up different areas of the face, suppressing the amount of oil produced by the sebaceous gland. Fewer oils keep the skin more balanced, minimizing the opportunity for pores to clog and acne to form in the future.
What does AviClear feel like? Does it hurt?
During a typical 30-minute treatment session, patients may experience a warm tingling sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Thanks to AviCool technology, the procedure has a built-in sensor that monitors the heat of the skin to maintain the most comfortable temperature for the patient
Is AviClear safe for me?
This procedure is perfect for any skin type or age range. If you are suffering from minor acne or acute acne vulgaris, AviClear is an effective, prescription-free alternative that was cleared by the FDA in March of 2022. Plus, it is free from chemicals and other toxins present in oral drugs or topical ointment methods that may harm your skin.
Are there any side effects post-treatment?
After the procedure, some patients may experience slight symptoms such as irritation, redness, or swelling, depending on the skin’s sensitivity. These effects recede in the hours following treatment, but most people need very minimal recovery time and return to normal activities without delay.
How can I get the best results?
Each AviClear treatment session is approximately 30-minutes, with the professional recommendation of 3 total rounds to be completed for the best results. Each treatment should be scheduled approximately a month apart (4-6 weeks). Many patiens notice improvements within days of their first treatment, but results vary. Over time, the treatment continues to improve facial complexion and prevents further acne breakouts.
