The Science Behind AviClear Laser Acne Treatment
AviClear Laser Acne Treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses laser technology – rather than harsh topical or prescription medications – to treat acne.
Like most medical conditions, acne requires the intervention of a doctor who can offer powerful, clinical grade, customized treatments. AviClear is a revolutionary new laser acne treatment that is now available at Goldenberg Dermatology in Manhattan.
In this article the board-certified dermatologists at Goldenberg Dermatology in Manhattan explain the science behind this new, safe, non-invasive, and highly effective laser acne treatment.
How the AviClear Laser Treats Acne
AviClear Laser Acne Treatment works by targeting the sebaceous glands in the skin that produce excess oil, which can lead to acne. The laser heats up the glands and reduces their size, thereby reducing the amount of oil produced. Additionally, the laser also targets the bacteria that causes acne, helping to clear up existing breakouts and prevent new ones from forming.
AviClear laser acne treatment uses an innovative combination of blue and red-light wavelengths to destroy acne-causing bacteria, reduce oil production, and eliminate inflammation in the skin. AviClear uses specific wavelengths of light that are absorbed by the skin’s pigment. These wavelength of light are not harmful to the skin or surrounding tissues, while they are absorbed by the pigmented areas of the skin, which includes the sebaceous glands.
The absorbed light energy causes the sebaceous glands to heat up, which leads to the reduction in their size. And smaller sebaceous glands produce less pore-clogging sebum (oil).
The laser treatment also targets the bacteria that causes acne. The light from the laser produces a singlet oxygen molecule, which is toxic to the bacteria. This helps to kill the bacteria and reduce the inflammation and redness associated with acne – resulting in clearer and smoother skin.
AviClear laser acne treatment in our Manhattan office typically only takes about 30 minutes to complete. More than one treatments may be required to achieve the desired results. The number of treatments required for optimal results will depend on the severity of the acne and the individual’s skin type and condition.
Why AviClear Acne Treatment is Superior to Over the Counter Treatments
AviClear laser acne treatment is considered superior to over-the-counter acne treatments for several reasons. To begin with, the laser technology used in AviClear laser acne treatment is precise and targeted. The treatment specifically targets the individual sebaceous glands, resulting in more effective and efficient treatment.
Additionally, unlike many over-the-counter acne treatments, AviClear laser acne treatment does not require the use of harsh chemicals, reducing the risk of scarring, infection, and other side effects.
Perhaps most importantly, over-the-counter acne treatments only provide temporary relief from acne symptoms, but they do not address the underlying causes of acne. AviClear Laser acne treatment targets both the excess oil production and the bacteria that causes acne, resulting in long-lasting results.
AviClear laser acne treatments at our Manhattan office are also not “one-size-fits-all” like over-the-counter treatments. AviClear can be personalized to the individual patient’s skin type, condition, and type of acne. The treatment can be adjusted to target specific areas of the face and body can be customized to address the individual’s unique skin concerns.
Finally, AviClear laser acne treatment is performed in our Manhattan office by a board-certified dermatologist who will provide guidance and support throughout the treatment process – including advice on skincare routines and providing other supplementary acne treatments and medications that can help to maintain the results of the laser treatment.
Why is AviClear Acne Treatment Is Often Superior to Acne Medications
In many situations, and for many patients, AviClear laser acne treatment is considered superior to acne medications like Accutane for several reasons:
Accutane is an oral medication that is taken systemically, which means it affects the entire body. In contrast, AviClear laser acne treatment is a non-systemic treatment that only targets the areas of the skin affected by acne. This reduces the risk of systemic side effects.
Additionally, AviClear laser acne treatment is a non-invasive treatment that does not require incisions or the use of harsh chemicals, reducing the risk of scarring, infection, and other side effects. And, because it is non-invasive, AviClear laser acne treatment has a quick recovery time. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately.
Also, because AviClear laser acne treatment reduces the oil-producing sebaceous glands, it reduces both the excess oil production and the bacteria that causes acne, resulting in long-lasting results. Accutane and other acne medications, however, typically require ongoing treatment or maintenance therapy.
Lastly, Accutane and other acne medications can be associated with several side effects, including dry skin, joint pain, and mood changes. In contrast, AviClear laser acne treatment has no known side effects and is generally well-tolerated by most patients including teens and adults.
