AviClear is an FDA-cleared energy device for treatment mild and moderate to severe acne. The mechanism of action is similar to the medication Accutane; it down regulates the sebaceous glands which are overproducing oil leading to clogged pores and inflamed acne. AviClear can provide lasting clearance and is free of harmful side effects, chemicals and is safe for all skin types. Downtime is minimal for most people, and you may resume normal activities immediately. After treatment, mild symptoms such as redness, inflammation and flareups occur in up to 40% of patients but fade quickly.
Three 30–40-minute treatments are required. The benefits of the treatments become apparent about three months after the final treatment and continued improvement is often reported at 6 months.
90 % of clinical trial patients reported being “satisfied” or “very satisfied”; 80 % of patients saw at least a 50% reduction at 3 months increasing to 87% of patients at 6 months.
The AviClear system is equipped with sapphire skin cooling and sensory controls for your comfort and safety. Most patients tolerate treatment well. Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide for additional pain management is available if needed.
AviClear is not covered by insurance; the fee is $3000 for the 3 cycles of treatment
Lasers and Vascular Lesions (Spider Veins)
Telangiectasias are small thin blood vessels visible beneath the skin. They are commonly known as “broken capillaries on the face, and as “spider veins” on the legs. These blood vessels on the face are acquired over time as a result of sun exposure, genetic factors, and the common disease rosacea. Certain patients experience stinging and burning on the face, others are discomfited by their complexion. Blood vessels on the legs are caused by a variety of factors, including heredity, hormonal influences, pregnancy and weight gain, and are estimated to affect nearly half of all adult women in the US. Some people experience painful symptoms such as aching, burning, swelling and cramping from larger leg veins, while others are bothered by their appearance.
