AviClear is ideal for patients searching for a safe and effective alternative to traditional acne treatments. The treatment is safe for all skin types and tones and can be used on adolescents and adults.

AviClear is a revolutionary laser treatment using a 1726nm wavelength to selectively target acne at the source and down-regulate the sebaceous glands. Why? Because acne forms when sebum, the oily substance on your skin, is combined with dead skin cells, followed by clogging your pores. Sebum is the substance that forms an atmosphere for bacteria to develop, which then causes inflammation, resulting in painful and cystic acne. A leading mechanism of acne is the overproduction of sebum by the sebaceous glands.

Where does the AviClear laser come into play? It damages the sebocytes and reduces sebum production. After the treatment, you will produce less oil, decrease your acne, and see improved skin!

AviClear allows for a safe and comfortable treatment experience. It is drug-free, chemical-free, non-toxic, and has no harmful side effects. It is safe for all skin types, tones and acne severity levels. Also, AviClear is equipped with exclusive AviCoolTM sapphire skin cooling and sensory controls, also known as contact cooling technology, which maintains your skin's temperature during the treatment making it a comfortable experience, beginning to end.

The side effects of AviClear are mild compared to certain acne medications that are harsh on your body. AviClear is free of harmful side effects, as no chemicals or toxins are used in this laser treatment. After treatment, mild symptoms may appear but are expected. These include redness which can last up to 1-2 days post-treatment, inflammation and flare-ups, but they fade quickly.

At MD Skin Lab, if we mutually agree that AviClear is right for you, you can expect the following during treatment, in order:

- Shave any excess hair.
- Clean your skin.
- Perform your AviClear treatment session, which lasts around 30 minutes.
- Apply a broad-spectrum SPF 30+ sunblock immediately after treatment.
- Review your post-treatment care instructions and recommendations.
- Schedule your remaining treatment session appointments.

One of our favourite things about an AviClear treatment is that it is very convenient and fits busy schedules! Each treatment session with your physician should last approximately 30 minutes with only three treatment sessions.

During the treatment, you may notice a light snapping sensation. Many patients tolerate this sensation and overall treatment well and are delighted with the treatment experience and outcomes.

AviClear treats multiple areas on your body, including:

- Face
- Shoulders
- Chest
- Back

We recommend consulting your physician to evaluate your skin and determine if any other problem areas need to be addressed.

After the AviClear treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling from one hour to up to two days. Acne flare-ups may occur but are temporary and should resolve with time. We recommend applying SPF 30+ sunblock daily throughout your treatment series. Additionally, MD Skin Lab recommends using an anti-acne skincare regime; our physicians and aestheticians can help create the best skincare regimen for you.

After the treatment, you will experience less oily skin, and your acne will improve. You should start seeing results around 3-4 weeks after your last treatment. According to clinical studies, 87% of patients saw at least half of their acne clear in the first six months after treatment (up from 80% at three months). Results may continue to improve with time, even several months after your treatment sessions are finished.

Having three appointments to see results is essential, each being 30 minutes. Twelve weeks after your final treatment, you will be asked to return for a final assessment.

AviClear is $4399 for three sessions.
