Acne Treatment with AviClear

AviClear is a non-medication based effective acne clearing treatment using a revolutionary 1726 nm wavelength laser that is safe for all skin types. It is the first and only Health Canada approved energy device for the treatment of mild to severe acne. AviClear targets the sebaceous gland of cystic, inflammatory, and hormonal acne.

Acne forms when sebum or the oily substance on your skin combines with dead skin cells and clogs your pores.  AviClear specifically targets, suppresses and down-regulates the sebaceous glands, the source of acne, resulting in reduced production of oil so your active acne will get better and stay better. This provides long-lasting results without the use of medications.

AviClear can provide lasting clearance without side-effects in three treatment sessions. Book your consultation today to find out if AviClear is right for you. 


Is AviClear Safe?

Unlike most traditional acne treatments, AviClear is free of harmful side effects, free of chemicals and toxins, and safe for all skin types and tones. After treatment, mild symptoms such as redness, inflammation and flareups are normal but fade quickly.


What Can You Expect From Treatment?

Treatment Length:

Three 30 minute treatment sessions 4-6 weeks apart.

What you can expect:

AviClear is equipped with AviCool skin cooling and sensory controls that maintain the skin’s temperature during treatment for a more comfortable experience. You may notice a slight snapping sensation. In clinical studies, patients were able to tolerate the treatment well without a need for pain mitigation or pausing the treatment session.

Is the treatment comfortable?

AviClear is equipped with exclusive AviCool™ sapphire skin cooling and sensory controls that maintain your skin’s temperature during treatment for a more comfortable experience.

What you should do before treatment:

You should stop using any active skincare ingredients (retinol, vitamin C, steroid topical creams) 3-5 days prior to a treatment session. You can resume your skincare routine 5 days after your treatment.

What you should do after treatment:

Use a gentle skincare regime for the first 3 days after your session, and make sure to wear a suitable SPF to avoid any sun exposure. Avoid using any active skincare ingredients (retinol, vitamin C, steroid topical creams) for 5 days after your treatment.  Speak to your healthcare provider to discuss suitable SPF options.

How soon will you see results?

Patients see optimal results 4-12 weeks after their final treatment. In clinical trials, 80% of patients saw a significant reduction in their acne during this time-frame.

How long will the results last?

87% of patients treated with AviClear saw at least half their acne resolve at 6 months following treatment, and results may continue to improve with time. Even after several months, you may continue to notice improvement in your acne.


Are You a Good Candidate?

AviClear can be used on adolescents and adult patients, suffering from mild, moderate and severe acne.  A consultation will determine whether or not you are an eligible patient for this treatment.
