What’s the Best Treatment for Acne?

Whether you deal with the occasional breakout or treatment-resistant cystic acne, you have been stuck with limited treatment options until now. AviClear™ offers long-lasting relief from troublesome acne with no medications. This highly effective treatment tackles the root cause of acne to lessen the frequency and severity of breakouts or even stop them entirely. 

What is Acne?

Your facial skin is covered with pores that contain sebaceous glands. These glands secrete an oily material called sebum. Acne is a general term for blackheads, whiteheads, and other blemishes resulting from clogged pores. This sebum mixes with dead skin cells, environmental debris, and bacteria to produce blemishes. Whiteheads occur when the material has not been exposed to the air, while blackheads develop if the pore-clogging oil is exposed to oxygen. Inflamed or cystic acne often results from the activity of bacteria. 

What Causes Acne?

The primary cause of acne is pores clogged with excessive sebum production. Many factors can contribute to causing acne. These include heredity, hormones, stress, and oil-containing skin and hair products. Hormonal changes contribute to the frequency of acne during puberty and breakouts related to menstrual cycles or pregnancy. The role of stress in causing breakouts contributes to those blemishes that pop up on the day of a big event. Fortunately, the best available acne treatment works on any type, regardless of the cause. 

What’s the Best Treatment for Acne? 

Previous acne treatments often relied on irritating topical products or medications with unpleasant side effects. Your team at Premier Vein & Body by Schwartz offers AviClear™, a revolutionary option for managing acne. AviClear™ is a laser that treats acne at the source: overactive oil-producing glands. It painlessly deactivates these glands to decrease the amount of oil they produce significantly. At Premier Vein & Body, we are proud to offer this game-changing acne treatment that can replace your less effective methods. 

How Does AviClear™ Treat Acne?

AviClear™ is a 1720nm laser that targets the sebaceous glands in the skin. It treats acne by deactivating these glands. The laser energy passes harmlessly through the skin and targets the sebaceous glands. The glands absorb the laser energy and heat up, causing damage that stops oil overproduction. The laser does not affect your skin and requires no recovery after treatment. People who have received treatment with AviClear™ typically love their results and the relief from breakouts it gives them. AviClear™ can even treat deep, resistant cystic acne, a difficult condition to manage with most methods. 

How Much Does AviClear™ Acne Treatment Cost?

The cost of AviClear™ acne treatments varies depending on your provider, location, and other factors. On average, a three-session course of AviClear™ costs between $3,000 and $5,000. While over-the-counter or prescription medications may be less expensive, AviClear™ results are hassle-free and lack the side effects of medications. 

Is There Any Downtime with AviClear™?

One reason people love AviClear™: it requires no downtime at all. You can return to your regular activities immediately after treatment. Some people have minor redness that usually fades within an hour. Like most laser treatments, AviClear™ makes the skin sensitive to the sun, so wear strong sunscreen and avoid excessive sun exposure.

What Results Will I See With AviClear™ Acne Treatment?

AviClear™ is administered as a series of three 30-minute treatment sessions. Most people see full results within a few weeks of their third treatment. Some notice a significant improvement after one or two sessions. AviClear™ results are expected to last up to two years or even longer. In some studies, 87% of those treated saw at least half of their acne disappear within six months. In addition, those with moderate to severe acne saw a 93% reduction in deep cystic blemishes that often cause scars. 

Am I a Good Candidate for AviClear™ Acne Treatment?

Most prescription acne treatments come with a long list of people who should not take them. AviClear™ is safe for almost anyone, regardless of skin type and tone. While anyone with acne can benefit, those with severe or cystic acne often see the most dramatic improvements. Good candidates for AviClear™ include those who want a long-lasting, stress-free way to manage acne without medications. 

How Can I Get Rid of Acne Scars?

AviClear™ can prevent future scarring from cystic or inflamed acne, but how can you treat the scars you already have? Premier Vein & Body offers a range of treatments to manage acne scars anywhere on the face and body. Your best options include the brand new Tixel skin resurfacing treatment, or revolutionary Opus Plasma™ skin resurfacing. During your consultation, your provider will assess your skin and determine which treatment is best for your acne scarring.
