AviClear Acne Treatment + Laser Genesis = Ultimate One-Two Punch
Acne is one of the most challenging skin conditions to treat because it involves various multiple factors. That is why over-the-counter drug store treatments and online products only provide temporary relief – by targeting the symptoms but failing to address the root causes of acne. Achieving long-term and effective acne relief requires medical intervention by a dermatologist who can provide the most advanced acne treatments that address the underlying root causes of the breakouts.
At Goldenberg Dermatology in NYC we offer the most advanced approach to treating acne, combining different treatment modalities to provide the best results. For many of our patients – including teens and adults – the AviClear Laser combined with Laser Genesis offers a powerful ‘one-two punch’ that can effectively treat acne, as well as significantly reduce future breakouts.
Sebaceous glands are small glands in the skin that produce sebum. They are found all over the body, but are most concentrated on the face, neck, chest, and back. Sebum helps to moisturize and protect the skin, but when too much sebum is produced, it can lead to acne.
Acne is a common skin condition that affects millions of teens and adults worldwide. It is caused by the overproduction of sebum, an oily substance produced by the sebaceous glands that clogs pores and leads to infection, inflammation, clogged pores and pimples or cysts. Acne can range from mild to severe and can cause breakouts, blackheads, whiteheads, and more.
Traditional Acne Treatments
When it comes to treating acne, there are several traditional methods that have been used for years. These include topical products, oral medications, and facial procedures. While these treatments can be effective for some people with milder acne, they typically are not sufficient on their own for more severe acne and can come with potential side effects.
Topical acne treatments are creams, gels, or lotions that are applied directly to the skin. These treatments work by reducing inflammation, unclogging pores, and killing bacteria on the skin. While topical treatments can be effective for mild to moderate acne, they may not work for severe cases. They can also cause dryness, redness, and irritation, and may take several weeks to show results.
Oral acne medications such as doxycycline or tetracycline, can be used to reduce inflammation and kill bacteria. But while these prescription medication can be effective, they may also come with potential side effects, such as dry skin, dry eyes, medication interaction, sun sensitivity, and even depression in some cases.
AviClear Laser Acne Treatment
The AviClear Laser is a revolutionary treatment for mild to severe acne that uses a 1726 nm wavelength to target and suppress the sebaceous glands that produce the sebum which causes and intensify breakouts, leading to acne scarring. AviClear remedies current eruptions, in addition to preventing future breakouts and acne scarring without damaging the skin.
The AviClear Laser uses targeted energy to heat up the sebaceous glands, causing them to shrink and produce less oil. This results in less oil on the skin, which means fewer clogged pores and significantly less breakouts. The laser also reduces inflammation, which is another contributing cause of acne.
AviClear Laser is FDA-cleared for the treatment of mild to severe acne. Clinical studies have shown that AviClear Laser can significantly reduce acne lesions, with lasting results. In one study conducted, leading dermatologists reported that patients saw a 70% reduction in acne lesions after just one treatment.
In addition to being a safe and effective treatment for acne, AviClear has minimal side effects. Some patients may experience redness, discomfort, or a snapping sensation during the treatment, but these side effects are mild and temporary. There is no downtime associated with the treatment, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.
Laser Genesis Acne Treatment
For patients requiring even more aggressive treatment of stubborn acne, combining AviClear with Laser Genesis can provide the ultimate ‘one-two punch’ at Goldenberg Dermatology in NYC. Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment that stimulates collagen production, reduces redness, and improves the overall texture and tone of the skin.
The laser’s gentle heat targets the blood vessels that contribute to redness and inflammation associated with acne breakouts. By constricting these blood vessels, Laser Genesis helps to reduce redness and calm the skin.
By combining the two treatments, patients can experience a significant reduction in acne, fewer breakouts, and a smoother, more even complexion.
“Real Self” Laser Acne Treatment Stories
Most patients report significant improvement in their acne after undergoing AviClear laser treatment, often in combination with other therapies like Laser Genesis. But don’t just take our word for it! On the popular review website “RealSelf”, one patient who had struggled with cystic acne for years, shared her experience with AviClear saying that after just one treatment, her skin was “clearer and brighter.” She noted that her skin continued to improve over the next few weeks, and after a series of treatments, her acne was virtually gone.
Another patient, who had tried numerous other treatments for her acne, including isotretinoin (Accutane), found that AviClear was the only therapy that truly worked for her. She reported that after just a few treatments, her skin was “completely clear” and that she had not experienced any adverse events or side effects.
