Acne is the most common skin condition in America. Whether you’re currently dealing with it or have dealt with it in the past, nearly 85% of people have experienced some form of acne. Still, the condition can be distressing and stubborn, leading to anxiety and loss of confidence. Fortunately, technology has come a long way, treating acne in innovative, tailored ways: Our newest favorite is the AviClear.
Here are 3 reasons you should try this treatment if you suffer from mild to severe acne.
AviClear treats acne at the source
Acne happens when the hair follicle (aka the pore) gets blocked with dead skin cells and a naturally occurring oil called sebum that stops the skin from drying out — the result is breakouts of blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. When bacteria make their way into the pores, the skin can become inflamed and irritated, leading to cysts, nodules, and pustules, a more severe form of acne.
AviClear relies on the power of laser light to selectively target and suppress sebaceous glands that create excess oil: thus treating acne at the root cause. As they say, the best defense is a good offense, and AviClear treats the source and problem simultaneously.
AviClear is quick
The innovative treatment might initially be a bit painful (similar to other laser treatments, expect a slight snapping feeling during the procedure), but luckily it only lasts a short period of time.
AviClear is administered in three, quick, 30-minute treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
AviClear results are long-lasting
AviClear is actually the first and original FDA-cleared energy device to treat acne. Because of the device’s unique approach, AviClear is long-lasting, subduing excessive sebum oil production to prevent future breakouts while also addressing active ones.
You’ll begin to see results following your last treatment, but peak results come at 12 months and beyond as the body and skin adjust. Although it might test your patience initially, 92% of patients see results from AviClear, making the waiting period well worth the anticipation. In the meantime, you can continue your current routine to treat breakouts, including topical and oral medication.
