AviClear Acne Laser
Conveniently located to serve Chicago
Mild to severe acne plagues over 50 million Americans in various stages of their lives. The cause of acne can be vast, from over production of sebum by the sebaceous glands, hormones, diet, stress, or any combination of these factors. While there are many prescription medications on the market for the treatment of mild to severe acne, the side effects of those medications not only affect your skin, but your gut health, and other vital organs as well. For years this has left people in a perpetual cycle of relying on harsh prescription medication, chemical treatments, and expensive skin care regimens. After extensive research, Dvida Spa in Chicago’s River North will now be treating acne with the first FDA approved energy device for the treatment of mild to severe acne, Avi Clear by Cutera.
What is AviClear?
Avi Clear is the winner of the Future of Beauty Award by Elle, the Best Laser Treatment for Acne by Cosmopolitan and has been featured in countless prestigious magazines due to its efficacy. It is the first FDA approved device that selectively targets and suppresses sebaceous glands using a 1726 nm wavelength, a breakthrough technology that works by bypassing melanin found in deeper skin tones, while seeking the source of the sebum. Thus, rendering this laser treatment safe for all skin tones and severity of acne. Acne forms when sebum combines with dead skin cells, clogging your pores. Most acne treatments do not target the production of sebum, but rather other factors that cause acne. Clinical trials demonstrated that both current and future breakout episodes were less intense, shorter, and less infrequent following a series of three Avi Clear treatments. Most patients that have or were taking Accutane for mild to severe acne are switching over to Avi Clear.
Home Does it Work?
Once the severity of the condition has been assessed, and proper paperwork is filled out, the client will be comfortably situated in one of our private rooms for the 30-minute procedure. It is common to notice a slight snapping sensation during the treatment. With the use of AviCool, a device that maintains your skins temperature during the treatment while providing skin cooling, patients report a comfortable experience without the need for further pain mitigation.
Tips Post Procedure
Some patients may experience an post-treatment acne flare up immediately following the procedure, with the post acne flare up lessening after each treatment. Following the third treatment, patients will see a significant clearance in their acne, while some more severe treatments could take up to 5 treatments in total. There is zero downtime after your treatment, and your skin care routine won’t change much either. Use an SPF 30 or higher specifically for the face (like you do everyday) and avoid occlusive agents such as Aquaphor and Vaseline. The service providers at Dvida Spa will recommend professional products to you based on your specific concerns and needs to compliment your treatment and maintain your results overtime.
