AviClear Q & A

How it Works?

Treat Acne at the Source. AviClear uses the power of laser light to selectively target and suppress sebaceous glands, eliminating acne at the source without the need for prescription medications.

How does acne form?

To understand how AviClear works, it’s important to understand how breakouts happen. Acne forms when sebum, the oily substance on your skin, combines with dead skin cells and clogs your pores.1 Most acne treatments target other things that cause acne, but not the production of sebum.2

Using AviClear, Dr. Gonzales can help you downredulate the sebaceous glands, slowing down oil production going forward.

How many treatments are needed?

Three, quick 30-minute treatment sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

How does it feel?

AviClear is equipped with exclusive AviCool™ skin cooling and sensory controls that maintain our skin’s temperature during treatment for a more comfortable experience.3 During treatment, you may notice a slight snapping sensation. In clinical studies, patients tolerated the treatment well, without the need for pain mitigation or the need to stop the treatment session.

When can I see results?

92% of patients treated with AviClear saw at least half of their acne resolve at 12 months following treatment. And results may continue to improve with time — even several months after your treatment sessions are finished.
