Many people with persistent or ongoing acne have tried just about everything available to them in their attempts to eliminate their acne. Creams, serums, diet changes, and medications with dangerous side effects are often on the list. If these solutions have failed or you’re tired of filling a prescription that may cause you more problems, consider AviClear, the new FDA-approved acne treatment for all types of acne, mild to severe.
At Pryor Health in Rockford, IL, we are committed to offering a wide array of safe, effective methods for skin care, aesthetic improvement, and wellness. Our providers are known for their exemplary patient care and focus on excellence in every facet of the Pryor Health practice. The entire team at Pryor Health reflects this vision in order to provide you with the best treatment with AviClear Rockford has to offer.
The primary cause of acne is the overproduction of sebum by the sebocyte cells in the sebaceous glands. AviClear works to clear acne by shutting down this overproduction, providing relief from excessive oil production, mild inflammatory acne, and even severe cystic acne. Using a 1726nm wavelength to precisely target and down-regulate over productive sebaceous glands, it addresses acne right at the source. This treatment is the first and only FDA-approved energy-based treatment for mild to severe acne and has been shown to address both current and future acne breakouts.
While the overproduction of sebum is the primary cause of acne, the reasons for this overproduction can vary. Acne breakouts can be caused by many factors, including hormonal changes, inflammation, medications, or diet. While stress does not necessarily cause acne, if you are already prone to breakouts, stress can definitely cause flare-ups.
If you suffer from acne, you understand the struggle of dealing with breakouts and the challenges they can present. Not only is it often embarrassing and aesthetically unwanted, certain types of acne, like severe cystic acne, can be very painful. Many other acne treatments, like topical medications or antibiotics, can also come with harsh side effects. At Pryor Health in Rockford AviClear offers a way to effectively treat acne, boost confidence, and eliminate discomfort without any risky complications. Benefits of AviClear include:
Because this is a non-invasive, versatile treatment, almost anyone at any age who wants to clear mild to severe acne is likely a great candidate for this procedure. Patients who go with AviClear typically want to:
During a consultation, we will examine your skin, take a detailed medical history, and discuss your goals and concerns for acne treatment. Typically, for optimal results with AviClear, the initial treatment plan is made up of three 30-minute sessions spaced three to four weeks apart. At your consultation, we will confirm if this is the right treatment for you and provide preparation instructions, which primarily consist of avoiding tanning products and using sunscreen during sun exposure.
At your appointment, your skin will be cleansed, and a wet compress will be placed on the treatment area for a few minutes to create a moisture barrier. Then, your provider will pass the laser over your skin. Usually, more than one pass is required. Built-in cooling technology called AviCool makes the AviClear procedure nearly pain-free, and most patients find it very tolerable. Each treatment session takes about 30 minutes.
Unlike some other more invasive and abrasive acne treatments, there are usually little to no side effects with AviClear. Some patients may experience some mild redness or inflammation, but this is usually brief, and you should be able to resume regular activities right away. Results will be noticeable anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks after your final treatment, and many enjoy a long-lasting reduction of acne.
