June might be the start of summer, but it’s also Acne Awareness Month, a time dedicated to educating and raising awareness about the common skin condition that impacts millions of people. Acne can be a significant source of distress, affecting self-esteem and even quality of life. While exploring what acne is and how it forms, we spotlight AviClear this month, an innovative treatment option that offers hope for those struggling with persistent acne.

Understanding Acne

Let’s start with a quick education. Acne is a skin condition that occurs when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It manifests as whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, or cysts that appear most commonly on the face, neck, chest, back, and shoulders. While acne tends to be most prevalent among teenagers because of hormonal fluctuations,  it can and does affect people of all ages.

The causes of acne include not just hormonal changes, but also genetics, bacteria, and lifestyle factors such as diet and stress. Treatments range from over-the-counter topical medications to oral drugs and even steroid injections. Still, finding an effective treatment that isn’t disruptive to day-to-day life can be challenging for those suffering from severe acne. Luckily, as technology continues to evolve, so do acne treatments.

Introducing AviClear

AviClear is a groundbreaking treatment that offers a new approach to managing acne: advanced laser technology that targets the root causes of acne. A non-invasive, drug-free solution with lasting results, AviClear is making waves in the dermatology world. 

AviClear uses a specialized laser to penetrate the skin and target the sebaceous glands responsible for oil production. By selectively heating these glands, AviClear decreases oil production, leading to fewer acne breakouts. The treatment is designed to be precise; it targets only the sebaceous glands without damaging surrounding tissue.

In addition to its effective treatment style, AviClear is also side-effect-free. Unlike oral medications, which can have systemic side effects, or topical treatments that may cause skin irritation, AviClear is minimally invasive, the procedure is quick, and patients can resume their normal activities shortly after treatment.

Finally, AviClear’s laser technology stimulates collagen production, which helps improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of acne scars over time. 

What to Expect from an AviClear Treatment

When you undergo an AviClear treatment, here’s what you can expect when you walk in the door:

Consultation: Your treatment begins with a consultation where we’ll assess your skin type and acne severity. 

Preparation: On the day of the procedure, your skin will be cleansed thoroughly and a topical numbing cream may be applied to ensure your comfort during the treatment.

Treatment: During the procedure, the AviClear laser is applied to the affected areas of your skin. You may feel a mild warming sensation as the laser targets the sebaceous glands. Each session typically lasts about 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Post-Treatment Care: Afterwards you might experience slight redness or mild swelling.

Results: Most patients require three to four treatments a few weeks

apart to achieve optimal results. 

The quick and dirty of it? AviClear is a superior acne solution. It has effective results, is long-lasting, and has minimal side effects.
