Introduction to AviClear

Although acne is the bane of most pubescent teens’ existence, there’s the light at the end of the tunnel that eventually, they will have clear, smooth skin – unfortunately, that’s not the whole story. Many adults find themselves with acne much later on in their lives, some much worse than others. With AviClear acne treatments in New York City from KH Plastic Surgery, patients can eradicate, or at least diminish, the appearance of really bad acne. To learn more about AviClear and to see if you’re a good candidate to come into one of our three offices in Manhattan and Long Island, continue reading below.

What is AviClear?

AviClear® is an FDA-approved laser acne treatment. This exciting proprietary technology is the first laser therapy approved for the safe, permanent reduction of mild to severe acne across lighter to darker skin tones. Patients who could previously only expect temporary symptom relief with topical treatments or oral medication can now benefit from AviClear® in New York City.

The innovative laser treatment can address the underlying causes of cystic and congestive acne at the source instead of just treating the resulting bacterial infection.

When the sebaceous oil glands near hair follicles become overactive, pores become congested with sebum (oil) and debris like dead skin cells. This results in frequent acne outbreaks. AviClear® can kill existing bacteria and target overactive sebaceous glands with great precision.

This curative therapy is proven effective in reducing the frequency and severity of acne breakouts with each treatment. Over eighty percent of patients saw complete elimination of acne conditions in the treatment area after three sessions.

What are the Benefits of AviClear?

One of the best benefits that AviClear offers is that it can help treat cystic acne, which is often more problematic than traditional types of acne. You will require more than one AviClear treatment before results are truly noticeable, but so many people can feel relief knowing that there is a viable solution for their cystic acne. The effectiveness of this treatment will also look different based on the severity of each patient’s skin condition.

Some of the additional benefits that we have witnessed our New York AviClear patients enjoy include:

  • Better self-esteem
  • Clear and smoother skin
  • Little-to-zero downtime
  • Treatments are comfortable and safe
  • Works with all skin types and tones

Who are the Best Candidates for the AviClear procedure?

The conditions caused by acne can significantly impact a person’s self-esteem, no matter how good they feel about the rest of their appearance. Chronically inflamed acne can cause permanent acne scars and discourage participation in certain activities out of fear of exacerbating acne.

Oral and topical medications used to manage acne can carry numerous pharmaceutical side effects or cause nearby healthy skin to become irritated or dry. They also often result in unimpressive improvement in many patients.

AviClear® laser acne treatment has finally achieved the dream of a safe, permanent, and pain-free solution to the following acne conditions:

  • Enlarged pores that are more susceptible to debris congestion
  • Small firm white bumps with black dots or blackheads
  • White or yellowish bumps that may develop a pustule head
  • Inflamed pores that are topped with red or pink lumps

One of the exciting advantages of AviClear® is that the treatment wand only affects sebaceous oil glands, leaving surrounding skin tissue unharmed. It is also safe for all skin tones.

What’s the First Step?

A consultation for laser therapy with AviClear® is necessary to confirm that the treatment is right for each patient. This will involve a discussion of the patient’s medical history and treatment goals.

When you come in for your initial consultation for AviClear, Dr. Hoschander will answer any questions you may have and address any concerns. He will ask you about your medical history and lifestyle, as well as examine your skin to determine if you’re a good candidate for this treatment. Please be open and honest when having your discussion with Dr. Hoschander so that he can make the best choices to help you achieve your goals and prevent unnecessary risks.

Once the two of you have agreed upon every aspect of the treatment, he will create your procedure plan and our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your next appointment.

What to Expect on the Day of AviClear

Before the start of the AviClear® laser treatment, a topical antiseptic will be used to disinfect the skin; a numbing solution is unnecessary since the laser wand simultaneously cools down skin tissue. The sensation from the laser is not painful and is often described as tingly or a light flick, and treatment typically takes less than one hour to complete.

AviClear Recovery

No recovery time is required after AviClear®, and patients can resume most activities immediately. Some patients may experience light redness or swelling; these are temporary and are quickly relieved with a cooling gel pack or a cold compress.

For a day or two, patients should avoid strenuous physical activities and extreme heat from showers, hot tubs, and saunas. Instructions regarding using sunscreen to prevent sun damage should be carefully followed.
