Will AviClear™ Work for Mild to Severe Acne?

By: Dr. Christopher Khorsandi


Acne has historically been considered a rite of passage of sorts – something that we all just have to live through. Many men and women continue to struggle with acne well into adulthood, with topical creams and at-home products doing little to improve the condition. Now, AviClear makes it possible to prevent and/or improve acne more effectively than ever, helping people to avoid the cosmetic and psychological side effects of adolescent or adult acne. At VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi and our team of aesthetic skin care specialists perform laser acne treatment with the cutting-edge AviClear system. Ready to learn more about the life-changing results that may be possible for you with AviClear for acne? Let’s go.

Nothing works for my acne

If topical and oral medications don’t seem to touch your acne, you’re not alone. Countless patients continue to experience acne flare-ups, despite a dedicated skin care regimen and a healthy overall lifestyle. In other cases, diet, genetics, hygiene, hormones, and other factors can contribute to acne breakouts. Technically speaking, acne is caused by a build-up of oil in the pores, which can become clogged and infected, ultimately leading to blemishes. Overactive sebaceous glands are often responsible for excess oil production, meaning topical skin care products may be addressing the problem too late. Instead, AviClear aims to target acne at its source.

How does AviClear work?

AviClear utilizes laser light energy to target and suppress the oil-producing sebaceous glands that are responsible for acne. A full round of AviClear acne treatment involves three 30-minute laser sessions over the course of three months. Most patients will notice visible results after about 3 – 4 weeks, with the full effects of AviClear becoming apparent about three months after the final treatment session. Oil production will continue to decrease for up to nine months or longer, and patients typically enjoy about two years of clearer, smoother skin before a repeat maintenance session may be needed.

Does AviClear work for severe acne?

Patients can expect about a 50% reduction in the severity and/or frequency of their acne breakouts with AviClear, which can be used to treat a full range of acne – from mild to severe. Additionally, AviClear is considered a safe and effective treatment for all skin types.

How can I prevent future breakouts after AviClear?

Acne is not always 100% preventable, but there are things you can do to discourage flare-ups, including:

  • Cleanse the skin twice daily with a gentle cleanser as recommended
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Use topical skin care products as directed
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet
  • Minimize your intake of high-sugar foods, processed foods, and saturated fat
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Use non-comedogenic makeup products

With a dedicated skin care regimen, a healthy lifestyle, and professional acne treatments like AviClear, you can finally kick acne to the curb and feel more comfortable and confident about your complexion.
