AviClear

aviclear acne clear skin laser

We are excited to announce that we are now offering AviClear ™, the first and only FDA-cleared laser device for the treatment of mild to severe acne. This new treatment significantly eliminates acne and delivers long-lasting results in just three 30-minute treatment sessions

How many treatments are needed?

Three, quick 30-minute treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

How does it feel?

AviClear is equipped with exclusive AviCool™ skin cooling and sensory controls that maintain our skin’s temperature during treatment for a more comfortable experience.3 During treatment, you may notice a slight snapping sensation. In clinical studies, patients tolerated the treatment well, without the need for pain mitigation or the need to stop the treatment session.

When can I see results?

87% of patients treated with AviClear saw at least half of their acne resolve at 6 months following treatment. And results may continue to improve with time — even several months after your treatment sessions are finished.
