AviClear in Irvine, CA

AviClear Acne Treatment

New, exciting FDA-Cleared energy device to reduce and eliminate mild to severe acne.

If you’re struggling with acne breakouts, you’re not alone–the reality is that approximately 40 to 50 million Americans suffer from acne, as reported by the American Academy of Dermatology. While there are a number of treatment options available, most medications and procedures will only target current symptoms and do not address the root cause of acne. If you're looking for a new, exciting way to not only treat your acne but prevent future breakouts, consider AviClear!

What is AviClear?

AviClear is the latest advancement in the treatment of breakouts, and the first and only FDA-cleared energy device indicated for mild, moderate, and severe acne. Aviclear’s laser technology aims to target acne at the source of oil-production, leaving patients with less breakouts, clearer skin, and results that last. It is a quick, minimally invasive procedure that requires no recovery or downtime, and doesn’t come with the risks or side effects that can accompany some other acne treatment options.

What can AviClear do?

AviClear can significantly improve your complexion and self-confidence by reducing the appearance of acne, as well as preventing future breakouts. In clinical studies, 87% of patients reported at least half of their acne was cleared six months after completing treatment, with results that may continue to get even better with time.

Am I a candidate for AviClear?

AviClear is FDA-approved to treat mild, moderate, and severe cases of acne, therefore virtually anyone struggling with breakouts can benefit from treatment. The laser is safe for every skin type and can be used to treat patients of all ages who are looking for an effective solution beyond oral and topical medications without side effects or downtime.

Consultation and Preparation

During your consultation, our team will assess your individual needs and goals to determine if AviClear is right for you. We will also discuss the details of the procedure, including what to expect before, during, and after treatment.

To prepare treatment, our Irvine AviClear patients should:

  • Avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks before treatment
  • Stop use of any products with active ingredients 3-5 days before treatment
  • Download the Cutera app and register for a patient ID

How Does AviClear Work?

AviClear specifically targets and suppresses the sebaceous glands, the source of oil-production in the skin, and the main cause of clogged pores and acne breakouts. After a series of treatments, our Irvine AviClear patients can notice less oily skin, and an overall decrease in both old and new acne lesions. AviClear achieves acne clearance with the same mechanism as isotretinoin (Accutane), but eliminates the risks and side effects by safely and effectively targeting the sebaceous glands via laser energy.

How many treatments will I need?

We recommend three treatments, four to six weeks apart for the best results. Once you have completed all three treatments, we will schedule you for a three and six month follow-up appointment with Dr. Pilest, as results will continue to improve up to six months after the last treatment.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

After your AviClear treatment, you may notice some mild redness and inflammation in the treated area; this is typical and should resolve within a few hours. No downtime is required and you can return to normal activities immediately after treatment, however, it is important to avoid prolonged sun exposure for at least two weeks. Some patients may notice purging following their procedure, which can be a normal part of the process and will get better with additional treatment.

In the months following your treatment, your results will continue to get better and better as oil production slows. Although some patients may require additional treatment at the nine month mark, in clinical studies, 9 out of 10 patients reported being “satisfied” or “very satisfied” with the results of their AviClear treatments.

AVICLEAR Frequently Asked Questions

Most patients describe treatment with AviClear as a “slight snapping sensation” and is generally well-tolerated. In addition, the AviClear device utilizes AviCool™, a unique cooling mechanism that helps to make treatment more comfortable.

Optimal results can typically be seen six months after your last treatment, however, many of our patients report seeing a decrease in acne and oil-production after their very first treatment. While some patients may experience their acne getting worse before it gets better, this is a possible outcome with not only AviClear but most acne treatments, and will resolve with additional treatment.

Although not permanent, AviClear targets acne at the source, therefore patients can expect long-lasting results that include less acne overall; shorter, less severe breakouts; and more infrequent breakouts. Some patients may require additional treatment, which can be assessed at your three and six month follow-ups.
