What is AviClear?

AviClear is a laser device used to treat mild to severe acne. It is the first and only FDA-cleared treatment of its kind to address acne with a unique laser treatment that targets individual acne spots on the face. AviClear can be used on any skin color for any level of severity of acne breakouts.

How does AviClear Work?

AviClear uses a safe laser to target and suppress the sebaceous glands in the skin. Sebaceous glands produce sebum, an oily, waxy substance. When too much sebum is produced, the pores become clogged and acne develops.

AviClear laser treatments cause the sebaceous glands to produce less sebum. This effectively improves the skin while minimizing further breakouts. AviClear acne treatment is performed with AviCool™ contact cooling to ensure the experience is comfortable and the skin is never damaged. Patients will feel a light snapping sensation on their skin but typically experience minimal discomfort.

Results with AviClear acne treatments

You will receive a customized number of treatments, each lasting 30 minutes, that are performed over a period of months. You will notice your skin is clearer and healthier. One of the most outstanding results is that your skin will have fewer and less severe acne breakouts. Breakouts are significantly shorter and milder. Results will continue over time, with better, healthier skin for the long term.

What are the benefits of AviClear?

AviClear treatments achieve many benefits for patients who want to improve their skin without taking medication or using chemicals. The AviClear acne laser achieves the following benefits for patients:

  • Clearer, healthier skin
  • Fewer, less severe acne breakouts
  • Long-lasting results
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Safe, effective, and FDA-approved for all skin types
  • No harsh drugs or chemicals
  • Short procedure time (30 minutes)
  • No downtime

Recovery after AviClear

Patients can return to their day after an AviClear treatment, as there is no downtime.

Some patients may break out immediately after receiving AviClear treatment, but this will fade. Breakouts will continue to lessen in intensity as patients complete their series of treatments. Your skin will become clearer and smoother over time, all without harsh chemicals or medications that have more serious side effects.

What We're Doing About COVID-19

At Comprehensive Laser & Aesthetics, your health, safety and happiness are our top priorities. We have been monitoring the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation very carefully. Our Columbia and Olney offices are open, and we will continue to follow updates from local, state and federal authorities.

We have taken a series of precautionary steps to ensure your safety:

  1. We are performing enhanced cleaning and sanitizing of all patient care areas on a regular basis and in between all patient visits.
  2. We will avoid having patients congregate in our reception area. Upon check-in, you will be shown to either a private exam room or consultation room depending upon the nature of your appointment.
  3. All members of our staff are screened daily for COVID symptoms and are asked to stay home if they exhibit any signs or symptoms of the disease.
  4. ALL of our providers wear surgical face masks, plastic face shields and the necessary personal protective equipment to ensure patient and provider safety.
  5. We use hospital-grade disinfectants (Cavi-Wipes, Cavicide) to clean patient rooms and equipment. CaviCide is a convenient, ready-to-use, intermediate-level surface disinfectant that is effective against TB, HBV, HCV, viruses (hydrophilic and lipophilic), bacteria (including MRSA and VRE) and fungi. It can be used in the NICU, operating rooms, isolation rooms, patient care areas and laboratories. When used as directed, it will also effectively clean and decontaminate critical and semi-critical instrumentation.
  6. All of our equipment and protective eyewear are cleaned after every use.
  7. Plexiglass shields will be in place at the check-in and check out areas to prevent aerosol transmission.

For the time being, we ask that you come to your appointments alone to limit the traffic through the office. We also ask that you leave children in the care of a family member or a sitter. If you have had a recent fever, sore throat, cold- or flu-like symptoms or contact with someone suspected of having COVID-19 please call immediately to reschedule your appointment.

As always we appreciate your support of and trust in our practice and we look forward to seeing you soon!
