AviClear at the North Shore Center for Facial, Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery

The entire team at North Shore Center are thrilled to offer residents or guests of North Shore AviClear treatments. Our goal is to provide our patients with the safest and most effective cosmetic, skin, and wellness treatments available in the industry. AviClear is a fantastic option for anyone looking to address acne breakouts.

What is AviClear?

This revolutionary and top-quality technology uses a 1726nm wavelength laser to suppress the root cause of acne: overactive sebaceous glands.

AviClear pinpoints the problem areas and targets the sebocyte cells in these glands to treat acne at the source instead of on the surface like most acne treatments. AviClear can be used treat mild to severe acne breakouts, and it is the only FDA-approved energy-based acne technology. Clinical trials showed it is effective in clearing current acne as well as preventing the occurrence and severity of future acne breakouts.

What causes acne breakouts?

Acne can have many causes, such as hormones, inflammation, dietary intake, stress, or certain medications. While all of these can factors can contribute to acne, what they are actually doing is stimulating the overproduction of sebum, which in turn causes acne breakouts. AviClear is so effective because it focuses on the core, underlying cause of acne beneath the surface.

AviClear Consultation and Preparation

At your AviClear consultation, we will examine your skin, get to know you and your skin goals, and create a customized and comprehensive treatment plan. You’ll get to know our staff and learn all the details about this procedure so you can decide if it’s the treatment you’d like to move forward with. If we believe there may be optimal alternatives for you and your skin, we’ll be sure to mention those as well. We will also inform you about any necessary preparations, including shaving the treatment area and avoiding sun exposure.

The AviClear Procedure

AviClear treatment sessions usually only take about 30 to 45 minutes depending on the area. At the start of your appointment, your skin will be cleansed of oils, and a moisture barrier will be created with a wet compress. Your provider will then place the AviClear device over your skin and will usually make a few passes with the tool. The device’s built-in cooling technology, AviCool, provides a nearly pain-free experience for most patients.
