How does Cutera Aviclear work?
Aviclear works by utilizing a combination of two different wavelengths of light. The first wavelength, 1064 nm, targets the sebaceous gland, which is responsible for producing the oil that can clog pores and lead to acne. The second wavelength, 415 nm, targets the bacteria that cause acne by destroying the porphyrins that are produced by the bacteria.
During the treatment, a handheld device is used to direct the laser energy to the affected areas of the skin. The laser energy is absorbed by the sebaceous gland and the bacteria, causing them to be destroyed. This process reduces the amount of oil produced by the sebaceous gland and eliminates the bacteria that cause acne.
What are the benefits of Cutera Aviclear?
Aviclear offers several benefits for those struggling with acne. First and foremost, it is a non-invasive treatment that requires no downtime, meaning that patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment. Additionally, the treatment is highly effective in reducing the number of blemishes and preventing future breakouts.
Aviclear is also a good option for those who have not had success with traditional acne treatments like topical creams or oral medications. Because the treatment targets the root causes of acne, it can be more effective than other treatments that only address the symptoms of acne.
Aviclear is a safe and well-tolerated treatment. While there may be some mild redness or swelling after the treatment, these side effects typically resolve within a few hours.
