How AviClear Can Help Your Acne Problems

How AviClear Can Help Your Acne Problems

Do you have acne that doesn’t seem to go away no matter what product you try? Wondering if there’s anything out there that can help give you the clear skin you crave? AviClear laser treatments might be perfect for you.

Following the United States FDA approval, Canada Health officially approved AviClear in the summer of 2022, making it the only energy device that’s government-approved to treat mild to severe acne.

This non-invasive, revolutionary treatment is designed specifically for acne sufferers and promises dramatic improvements in a relatively short time. Plus, with minimal side effects or discomfort, this might be your complexion’s much-awaited solution.

Read on to learn more about how AviClear can end your acne problems once and for all.

What is AviClear?

This revolutionary treatment makes gaining clear, healthy skin easier without compromising comfort or convenience. Simply put, AviClear is revolutionising how we treat acne and giving us a new solution to keep our complexion looking its best. But what is AviClear?

First, it’s important to note that AviClear differs from other skin treatments for acne scars, including microneedling or chemical peels.

Instead of relying on microneedles or chemical solutions, AviClear uses revolutionary laser technology to treat mild, moderate, and severe acne before it forms. In three sessions about three to four weeks apart, AviClear targets and suppresses the sebaceous gland (which secretes the skin’s oil) on a microscopic level, ensuring successful results safely and effectively.

How Does AviClear It Work?

To understand how AviClear works, it’s important to know how acne forms in the first place. The combination of sebum (the skin’s oil) and dead skin cells (usually) causes acne. Both clog pores and lead to breakouts. That’s where AviClear comes into play.

AviClear directly targets sebum production, unlike other treatments focusing on individual problems or effects of acne while ignoring its root cause. How does it suppress sebum production and help clear up your skin?

The 1726 nm wavelength laser harnesses the power of laser light to selectively target and suppress sebaceous glands, providing customizable results without needing prescription medications.

Thus, AviClear works quickly and effectively to reduce redness, swelling, and inflammation caused by acne breakouts.

What Sets AviClear Apart From Other Lasers?

Unlike other treatments, AviClear does not simply treat active breakouts — it also suppresses the production of future ones.

This is what makes this acne treatment so effective and unique. Instead of helping clear up current flare ups or eliminating acne scars caused by previous ones, AviClear helps clear your skin up and leaves it in great condition to prevent future acne issues.

Likewise, it’s important to note that AviClear differs from other laser treatments, such as laser resurfacing treatments.

Traditional laser resurfacing treatments use different lasers to treat the skin’s surface layer, not the sebaceous glands. Laser resurfacing treatments use laser light to remove the top layers of skin delicately.

You know, the areas with wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. This helps to even out skin tone and reduce these signs of aging and sun damage.

During laser resurfacing, laser energy is absorbed by water molecules in your skin. This causes the outer layer of your skin tissue to be gently heated and vaporized, revealing younger-looking tissue underneath.

As laser resurfacing treatments are highly targeted, they can provide long-lasting results with minimal risk of damaging healthy tissues.

However, that doesn’t typically mean they’ll work to clear up active acne and prevent future flare ups.

What Level Of Acne Is Treatable With AviClear?

Are you worried that your acne is “too bad” to be able to benefit from AviClear? Don’t be! AviClear is approved to treat mild, moderate, and severe acne. How do you know what type of acne you have?

Mild acne can present as occasional breakouts, with black and whiteheads being the primary issue. An increased frequency of breakouts can identify moderate acne, sometimes accompanied by red or pink bumps.

Severe acne usually presents itself with severe inflammation, likely resulting in painful:

  • Cysts
  • Nodules
  • Pustules

AviClear is the perfect device to help reduce the symptoms of all levels of acne — mild, moderate, or severe.

With FDA-clearing in the US, Canada Health clearing here, and numerous clinical trials conducted to understand the effectiveness and enhance consumer safety, you can rest assured this treatment is suitable as a high-quality acne treatment.

How Long Do AviClear Results Last?

On average, those who undergo three AviClear treatments experience a clear complexion for up to 12 months. However, remember that results are individual. For example, some clinical trial participants said their results lasted as long as two years after their last treatment session.

The main point? AviClear brings long-term relief from skin issues like acne and scarring, making it an excellent choice for anyone looking to improve their complexion. While it’s not 100% permanent in preventing all future breakouts forever, it’s a fantastic treatment option for those tired of dealing with acne.

Who Should Try AviClear?

If you’ve gotten this far, chances are you’re interested in AviClear acne treatment. However, you might wonder if it’s the right treatment option. Simply put, AviClear is a great option for anyone with acne.

Overall, AviClear acne treatment is a perfect solution for anyone who wants to get rid of acne without using harsh chemicals or prescriptions. AviClear is also suitable for people with normal, combination, oily, and sensitive skin types.

The Benefits of AviClear

Clear skin sounds great, right? Absolutely.

However, there’s more to AviClear than just clear skin. Part of the reason so many patients love this laser treatment option is because of the painless nature of the process and the fact that they enjoy long-lasting results.

If you’re still on the fence about booking your AviClear consultation to help solve your acne problems, read through these four main benefits of AviClear.

Treats Active Acne

The last thing you want when dealing with acne breakouts is the promise of it getting better in the future. You want immediate relief from active acne. That’s what AviClear provides. You don’t need to wait until your flare-up is over to book an appointment.


If convenience is key for you, then you’ll love AviClear. The treatments are easy to access. All they require are three simple 30-minute sessions over three consecutive months.

So, you don’t have to worry about heading into a clinic every week or spending hours dealing with painful lasers, needles, or peels.


AviClear is painless and easy to tolerate. You may notice a slight snapping sensation during treatment. However, most patients don’t find the sensation to be painful.

And we’re not just saying that based on experience!

Clinical studies show that patients got through the entire treatment session without pain relief or having to stop.

Long-Lasting Results

While other treatments may offer temporary improvement in acne, AviClear is different. It works to target the cause of acne instead of just addressing its symptoms.

With AviClear, you can feel confident that you are taking proactive steps to give yourself healthy, clear skin that lasts at least 9 to 12 months.

Are There Side Effects of AviClear?

The idea of having a laser near your face sounds daunting to most. We get it. However, AviClear has minimal downtime and side effects.

After an AviClear session, some people experience slight redness or mild acne flare-ups, but don’t worry. This is expected and will fade quickly. You can typically return to your regular activities shortly after finishing your treatment.

This means it’s an outpatient procedure with virtually no downtime, extreme swelling, or redness.

What to Expect During AviClear Treatment

Seeing as there’s virtually no pain involved with AviClear, what can you expect during the treatment? Before discussing the treatment process, let’s discuss some preparation tips.

If you have facial hair, you should shave it beforehand. You should also stop using topical retinoids for two days before the AviClear treatment. Then, arrive with a clean face.

Before the AviClear laser treatment begins, your technician will use an acetone wipe to degrease your skin. Typically, we don’t apply numbing cream as it can affect how the laser interacts with your skin.

Following this, we’ll soak gauze pads in water and place them over your whole face. Why? Wetting helps promote even cooling across the treated area. Finally, the AviClear treatment itself commences. Please sit back and relax as we work our magic.

The result is reduced redness and acne breakouts. You’ll also likely notice an improved skin tone overall. Don’t worry if you don’t see results straight away. Some people see results a few weeks or months after the final treatment.

AviClear Aftercare Tips

For AviClear to be effective, there are certain aftercare tips to follow. Immediately post-treatment, we will apply a mineral sunscreen. You should continue using this sunscreen daily.

The next morning, you may wash your face with a mild cleanser. However, avoid direct sunlight or extreme heat for a few days. Be mindful of skin irritants in the following three to five days. If you can, avoid using harsh exfoliants until your AviClear treatment process is complete.

Following these aftercare tips will ensure maximum results and leave you with glowing and vibrant skin.
