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.
