What causes acne breakouts?

Acne is a skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide, but what causes it? While the exact cause of acne is not fully understood, several factors can contribute to its development. Hormonal changes during puberty, pregnancy, or menstruation can trigger acne by increasing sebum production. Bacteria, such as Propionibacterium acnes, can also contribute to acne by infecting hair follicles. Additionally, genetics, stress, and certain medications can play a role in the development of acne. Understanding the causes of acne can help individuals take steps to prevent and treat this common skin condition.

What is AviClear?

AviClear is a revolutionary laser acne treatment that targets sebaceous glands, reducing sebum production and promoting optimal skin clarity. When dead skin cells and pollution combine with the sebum on the skin, it can block the pores and trigger a repeated cycle of skin breakouts. AviClear offers a solution to this problem by using a laser frequency called 1726nm in a series of three 30-minute sessions, once per month for three months. This treatment targets the glands responsible for producing sebum, reducing their activity. Consequently, the breakouts that occur become less severe, shorter in duration, and less frequent both now and in the future.

What can AviClear do?

Having clear skin can provide numerous benefits, both physical and emotional. First and foremost, clear skin is a sign of good overall health and hygiene. It can also give an individual a boost of confidence and self-esteem, allowing them to feel more comfortable and confident in social situations. Clear skin also means less time and money spent on makeup or skin care products to hide blemishes or treat acne. Additionally, maintaining clear skin through healthy habits such as a balanced diet and regular exercise can contribute to better physical health and a stronger immune system. Overall, clear skin can positively impact one's overall well-being and quality of life. AviClear treatments are short, completely non-invasive, and require no downtime, making it the perfect solution for even the busiest patients.

Am I a candidate for AviClear?

AviClear is a laser suitable for all skin tones as it targets the source of sebum-causing acne rather than melanin. Its unique wavelength (1726nm) is only absorbed by the sebaceous gland, so it won't cause hyperpigmentation in patients with deeper skin tones. AviClear is effective for all ages and has been shown to provide equal benefits to the lightest and darkest skin colors. It is a generational solution for treating acne, and its breakthrough technology has proven to be successful in both FDA studies and real-life treatments.

AviClear treatment is also a potential substitute for people who have previously used prescription antibiotics or Isotretinoin and are now looking for a less intrusive option for their persistent acne symptoms. AviClear is an excellent solution for patients dealing with:

  • Teen acne
  • Postpartum acne
  • Cystic acne
  • Hormonal acne
  • Inflammatory acne

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

AviClear treatment does not require any downtime, allowing you to resume your normal daily activities immediately after. Furthermore, there is no significant alteration required to your current skin-care routine. As always, it’s important to protect your skin from sun exposure.
