AviClear: A Breakthrough in Acne Treatment

February 29, 2024

SkinDC is proud to provide AviClear, a breakthrough in acne treatment, to our patients in Arlington, Virginia and the surrounding DMV areas! This groundbreaking technology offers hope to people struggling with acne by creating a light at the end of the tunnel (pun intended, because it’s a laser acne treatment!). To help spread the word, we’ve created this AviClear guide, where we’ll give you the 411 on this incredible, life-changing procedure.

What Exactly Is AviClear?

AviClear is a pioneering advancement in acne treatment, marking its place as the first and only FDA-cleared laser solution specifically designed to combat acne. This innovative product harnesses the power of advanced laser therapy to precisely target and significantly reduce the skin’s oil production, directly addressing the root cause of acne for all skin and acne types, including light or dark skin, mild or severe acne, hormonal acne, cystic acne, inflammatory acne, and anything in between).

Imagine being able to stop using all or almost all of your prescribed dermatology medications. AviClear can help you eliminate the need for various skin care products. Instead of juggling daily creams, pills, or other treatments that your skin can grow reliant on, this laser gets down to the nitty-gritty, dialing down oil production to keep breakouts at bay. And guess what? The procedure is so quick that you’ll be able to jump right back into your day. 

Whether you’ve been struggling with acne for a while or just looking for a way to clear things up without much fuss, AviClear could be your ticket.

How Does It Work?

Like the heal tool in Photoshop, AviClear is all about zapping away the problem right at its oily source. How? Well, our skin has these tiny factories called sebaceous glands that produce oil (sebum) all over the body. Though sebum might get a bad rep for making our skin oily or being mistaken for blackheads, it is actually essential for our skin. Sebum is necessary to keep our skin hydrated, but too much can clog pores and lead to acne—and not just on your face. That’s where the AviClear laser steps in with its one-of-a-kind treatment for acne.

AviClear’s laser targets those oil-producing glands, turning down the oil dial without harming the surrounding skin. It’s like when your parents wouldn’t let you have the sweets you wanted; sure, it was delicious and a welcomed break from vegetables, but overindulging would make you sick. You want your skin to produce sebum, but you don’t want too much because it will make your skin “sick” with acne. 

The best part of AviClear is its efficiency—most patients only need three monthly sessions, each lasting for just 30 minutes! 90% of patients saw an improvement in their acne in just six months, and 92% said goodbye to at least half of their acne just 12 months after their final treatment.
