About AviClear ™
Acne is the the #1 dermatological skin condition affecting over 50 million people. AviClear is the newest acne laser. It has gone through rigorous clinical trials and is both FDA and Health Canada approved for the treatment of all severities of acne. This is a laser that improves acne in the short and long term by permanently changing your sebaceous glands.
How Does AviClear ™ Work?
AviClear targets acne at the source. This revolutionary laser treatment uses a 1726nm wavelength to selectively target and down regulate the sebaceous glands. Acne forms when sebum, the oily substance on your skin, combines with dead skin cells and clogs your pores. Overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands is one of the main mechanisms of acne. Sebum creates an ideal environment for bacteria to grow, causing inflammation which leads to painful and cystic acne. The AviClear laser damages the sebocytes and suppresses sebum production.
After the treatment, you will produce less oil and your acne will get better and stay better.
Significant results can be seen in three quick 30-minute treatment sessions over 3 months. AviClear has been shown to provide lasting clearance.There is minimal downtime and you can resume your normal activities fairly soon after a treatment.

The AviClear laser treatment is safe and comfortable. Your skin will be washed and cleaned thoroughly prior to the treatment. The treatment involves pulses of light on your skin. During these pulses, you might feel a slight snapping sensation on your skin.
