Acne is one tricky condition to live with—one day your skin looks relatively smooth and blemish-free, and the next you have painful pimples erupting all over your skin. So, when your regular skin care fails you, certain treatments like AviClear™ may help you obtain that smooth, clean skin you have been pining for.
But what exactly is AviClear™, and how can it help your journey toward acne-free skin? What exactly can you expect from this treatment? Are there any AviClear™ side effects you need to be aware of? All your questions will be answered because, in this blog, we will talk about AviClear™, the latest treatment for clear, luminous-looking skin.
What Is AviClear™?
AviClear™ is a treatment that uses 1726 nm wavelength laser energy to target your skin’s oil-producing glands. For the past few years, laser energy has been used to treat acne by killing the bacteria responsible for this condition, but AviClear™ takes it one step further. This treatment can decrease the amount of oil that your sebaceous glands produce. This can reduce acne breakouts because there will be less oil to clog your pores.
Remember that AviClear™ only suppresses the sebaceous glands; it does not destroy them because your skin still needs some sebum so that it can stay plump and healthy. This makes this treatment a good choice for those men and women with any type of skin complexion.
Benefits of AviClear™
Here are some of the benefits that you may enjoy by using the AviClear™ acne treatment:
1. Effective for Every Skin Type
For a long time, it has been speculated that laser treatments could not be used on people with darker skin tones. In a way, that is true, because stronger lasers can lead to discoloration. However, AviClear™ uses a wavelength that makes it completely safe for people of every skin tone. Moreover, it does not overheat the skin, which is also great news for people with sensitive skin.
2. Minimal Downtime
This procedure does not involve surgery or injections. On the contrary, AviClear™ can have an anti-inflammatory effect. Other treatments require you to rest for a bit after the procedure, but with AviClear™, you should only avoid direct sunlight and wear sunblock. Normal activities may be resumed after your treatment session.
3. Long-Lasting Results
You have probably seen many treatments that promise long-lasting results, and while they may work a little bit, the acne can still come back at random, unexpected times. However, many people who have tried the AviClear™ acne laser report long-lasting results. All patients need to undergo three monthly treatments to get the best results, but once the treatments are done, you can enjoy watching your skin improve over time. Patients will notice a clearer skin complexion, which continues to improve over the next 12 months.
4. Quick Treatments
Some people do not get acne treatments because they do not want to spend most of their day at the office. In this case, AviClear™ might be a better choice because the sessions only require about 30 minutes per treatment. This means that you can be in and out of the office by the time your lunch break ends.
Will You Experience AviClear™ Side Effects?
Unlike other acne treatments, AviClear™ has minimal side effects. For example, let’s look at AviClear™ vs Accutane (Isotretinoin), the latter can have side effects such as dry skin or inflammation. On the other hand, for most patients, AviClear™ can feel like a mild sunburn, and mild blistering is possible. As a result, most patients can return to work immediately after they receive the treatment.
Aside from the slight redness that will likely go away shortly, you may also notice a mild acne breakout after the treatment. This is normal and there is no reason to worry because your sebaceous glands are clearing out and the bacteria and sebum trapped in your pores will likely react. After that, you might notice fewer breakouts than before, especially if you have a thorough skincare routine.
