AviClear is a laser treatment for acne that works by destroying the sebaceous glands, the anatomical source of oil that leads to outbreaks. AviClear is the only energy device approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of moderate to severe acne. It is effective against blackheads, whiteheads, cysts, and nodules of all sizes and colors of skin, but what is AviClear, and what can you expect from your treatment sessions? All of these questions and more will be answered in this article.
How does Aviclear work?
This cutting-edge technique safely and effectively suppresses hyperactive sebaceous glands, the underlying cause of acne, without the need for any drugs. Aviclear is different from other acne treatments such as Laser Genesis, Morpheus 8, Sublative, and OxyGeneo Facial in many ways. The oily, fatty material known as sebum is secreted by the sebaceous glands to keep the skin supple and healthy. However, excess sebum can cause acne by blocking pores. Acne scars fade and eventually disappear as your skin adjusts to producing less sebum oil following AviClear treatments.
What happens in Aviclear treatment sessions
The following are the processes that make up a typical AviClear session, which lasts around 15 minutes:
- In the first step, the skin is cleansed to get it ready for the procedure.
- A small amount of gel is used to help transfer the laser’s heat to the skin.
- Pulses of laser light are sent to the sebaceous glands while the AviClear device is moved over the skin. The device’s cooling tip helps relieve pain and shields the skin from damage.
- The gel is rinsed out, and then sunscreen and moisturizer are applied.
After treatment, the patient does not need any rest or recuperation time before returning to their routine.
Getting ready for an AviClear session
Here are some things you can do to get ready for your AviClear session:
- For at least two weeks before your procedure, you should stay out of the sun and avoid tanning beds. Blistering, hyperpigmentation, and hypopigmentation are all adverse effects that may be worse on sunburned or tanned skin.
- At least three days before your treatment, you should stop taking any topical acne drugs, including benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, and retinoids. The usage of such items can increase laser sensitivity and lead to irritation.
- For at least a week before your treatment, avoid removing hair from the region by waxing, plucking, or tweezing. The hair follicles can be damaged by these techniques, reducing the laser’s efficiency.
- Before beginning your treatment, please cleanse your face with a mild cleanser and pat it dry. Do not use any skincare products, including makeup, moisturizer, sunscreen, etc. The laser’s ability to penetrate your skin requires that your skin be clean and clear of any substances.
- Tell your doctor if you have ever had cold sores or herpes simplex virus. Antiviral drugs may be prescribed to you in case the laser triggers an epidemic.
