Everything You Need to Know About AviClear

Acne is a skin issue that can affect anyone at any point in life, although it's often more common in teens and young adults. No matter your age, acne is frustrating and challenging to control.

Various treatments exist for acne breakouts, including face cleansers, prescription medications, and professional skin care treatments. However, these treatments only work for some; so what else is out there?

At Flushing Medical Spa in Queens, New York, our team is excited to offer the FDA-approved AviClear™ laser treatment for mild to severe acne. Dr. QiLi Li is our board-certified specialist who evaluates your acne to determine the best treatment route for your needs.

What is AviClear?

AviClear is an FDA-approved treatment for various types of acne breakouts. It's a fast and effective way to get the clear skin you dream of.

The laser we use during your AviClear treatment is safe and effective and doesn't dry out or damage your skin. It specifically targets your sebaceous glands to reduce oil production and clear up your acne for good.

Most people need three treatments to achieve their desired results. Each treatment takes about 30 minutes, and we space your sessions about four weeks apart.

After three treatments, you should see a significant change in your skin. AviClear produces long-lasting results for less acne-prone skin.

How AviClear works

AviClear targets the sebaceous glands in your skin, which produce an oily substance known as sebum. Excess sebum production causes acne when it collects in your pores with dead skin cells and bacteria.

People with acne often have overactive sebaceous glands, which clog their pores.Pimples occur when sebum overruns your pores with dead skin cells. The result is whiteheads, blackheads, and painful red bumps.

AviClear therapy explicitly targets your sebaceous glands, suppressing sebum production. Less sebum helps keep your pores clear, reducing acne and promoting flawless skin.

Good candidates for AviClear

Anyone living with acne is a good candidate for AviClear. It's an excellent option for people with various types of acne, including cystic acne.

Even those living with treatment-resistant acne can benefit from AviClear. If you've tried medications and other harsh chemical treatments without relief, AviClear therapy may be suitable for you.

The best aspect of AviClear is that it provides unrivaled results without the side effects of medications and other treatments. It also treats the root of your problem instead of covering up the underlying issue.

Although AviClear is safe for most people, it's not for everyone. Dr. Li may recommend other treatments if you're pregnant, living with rosacea, or have had skin cancer in the past.

After AviClear therapy

Most laser treatments require several days of recovery because of redness and inflammation in your skin. However, you don't have to worry about that with AviClear.

There are very few side effects with AviClear, and most people return to their normal activities the same day as treatment. You may notice mild redness, which typically clears up within a few hours.

One frustrating side effect that many experience is an increase in acne after treatment; however, this is a sign that the laser is working. You should notice long-lasting, clear skin after your body clears the increased acne breakout.

AviClear is a cutting-edge treatment that offers unrivaled results without the side effects of medications or other harsh acne therapies. It even cuts down on embarrassing acne scars over time.
