Healthcare is not one-size-fits-all. Every person you know is unique, and so are their health conditions. That’s why medical professionals tailor treatment plans to fit individual needs.
Acne, for example, is a common condition with many different ways to treat it, most of which are time-consuming, cause side effects, and vary in effectiveness. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, up to 50 million Americans are affected by acne annually, making it the most common skin condition in the United States. Finding an effective treatment for this seemingly impossible condition is now a reality: a universal solution for addressing mild, moderate, and severe acne, resulting in a lifetime of clear, healthy skin.
AviClear is the first FDA-approved laser treatment for acne. Essentially, a laser targets and down-regulates the sebaceous gland, which is an oil factory for your skin. It treats the root cause of why acne occurs. And while we’ve always known this specific wavelength of laser light can control and tame the sebaceous gland, it’s never been able to be used safely. Until now.
What makes AviClear better than the rest?
AviClear presents the first opportunity to deliver intense energy onto the skin without adverse effects. Even though the medical field knew laser treatment would be successful, a method for delivering this type of treatment without causing harm elsewhere. What makes AviClear truly innovative is the introduction of a unique handpiece, AviCool, which releases contact cooling capabilities for a more pleasant treatment. The combination of AviClear and AviCool prevents high-level energy from burning the skin, keeping the skin cool and protected instead.
AviClear treatment is completed across three thirty-minute sessions each spaced a month apart, making it less of an overall effort than outdated acne treatments. Not only is it less of a commitment, it won’t affect other aspects of the patient’s health. Systemic oral drugs, such as Accutane, have dangerous consequences impacting nearly every part of your body, including your liver enzymes, cholesterol, and overall bodily dryness. It’s also teratogenic. This means that taking this type of medication can be a disaster for pregnant women, resulting in severe birth defects. Even young women who take Accutane are encouraged to be on multiple forms of birth control to prevent such outcomes. Worst of all, it can be drastic to the patient’s mental health. The National Institute of Health reported common side effects, including the introduction or worsening of psychiatric disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, and psychosis.
I’ve always found the negative mental health side effects of taking acne treatment to be quite ironic. Resolving acne and clearing up the skin shouldn’t cause mental strain but alleviate it. Many people have struggled with acne for decades, and even those who might have only been subjected to the teenage years of skin problems might suffer from scarring. The proper acne treatment can allow someone to present themselves with confidence. No longer will there be the lingering pain, discomfort, or embarrassment of having acne. When it comes to young adults, getting the proper treatment at the right time can completely change the experiences of puberty, growing up, and entering adulthood.
What’s also great is there’s no downtime. People often equate procedures, especially lasers, with excessive downtime. While patients might leave treatment and be a little flushed or red in the face, they can still get right on with their day, whether that means going back to school or work. There’s no risk of infection, weeping, or burning. There’s no looking weird or being unable to do what you need to do to keep your life on track. Patients can continue using regular medications while receiving Aviclear, whether it be antibiotics, retinoids, or even topical treatments. Although, patients are encouraged to avoid using topicals two to three days before and after treatment.
AviClear is the safest option for acne treatment, both for the brain and the body. It’s not systemic, it simply treats the root cause of acne, which means anyone can benefit. The wavelength of treatment doesn’t affect pigmentation. Anyone with any complexion struggling with mild, moderate, or severe acne over the age of 12 can begin AviClear treatments. And there’s no upper age limit – I just treated someone who is 62 years old for hormonal cystic acne on her jawline. After trying nearly every possible remedy for decades, AviClear was the first to show real success on her skin. But say she struggled with blackheads or pustular acne, AviClear would still do the trick. And what makes it very different from topical treatment or caring for an active lesion is that it will prevent new lesions from appearing in the first place.
But what about the cost?
The most common deterrent is not fear of laser treatment or because there’s a better solution for acne – it’s cost. Let’s face it: An upfront fee of $3,000 is not something most people are willing or able to pay outright. But most people don’t realize that their annual skincare routine will likely burn a bigger hole in their pocket. Skincare, albeit necessary, is not cheap – routine care alone costs a couple of hundred dollars a year when you replenish face wash, toners, serums, and moisturizers. And if you struggle with persistent acne, there will likely be even further expenses like doctor’s visits, topical or oral treatments, and lab work monitoring. It’s unfortunate that people will spend decades shelling out for acne management and still be unable to find a solution that works for them. If you put all of those expenses next to AviClear, guess which option turns out to be more cost-effective in the long run?
AviClear is not only a less expensive option for the long term but, as mentioned before, a genuine, true solution for acne. Sure, it doesn’t clear your skin overnight. But after three months of treatment, people are clearer. And they continue to get better and clearer as time goes on. AviClear addresses the deeply rooted issues underneath the skin, which can take a little bit of time. But more than anything, it won’t create new acne. It is revolutionary!
