Acne Culprits and How AviClear Helps

Acne is a complex condition that happens when the skin produces excess oil. This can cause inflammation and bacteria build-up. Hormonal changes, certain medications, and even skincare products can also cause acne. Everyone’s experience with acne is unique. The condition may be more prevalent in some people than others.

AviClear gets to acne’s root cause. It reduces inflammation, eradicates acne-causing bacteria, and suppresses sebaceous glands. The procedure involves using an FDA-cleared, non-invasive and gentle device, which delivers energy to the skin and kills bacteria.

This novel solution doesn’t only clear existing breakouts. It also prevents new pimples from forming. Say hello to the clear, beautiful skin you deserve.

AviClear Results*

AviClear is clinically proven to produce outstanding results for acne treatment. In a study, a vast majority of patients, over 90%, reported an improvement in their acne. 80% of patients saw at least a 50% reduction in their acne.

Furthermore, AviClear has demonstrated long-term effectiveness. Patients have expressed experiencing shorter, less intense, and less frequent breakouts. While personal results may vary, these studies suggest that AviClear is an effective option for treating acne.

AviClear Candidates

AviClear treats various acne types including cystic, inflammatory, and hormonal acne. You’re in luck if you’re looking for a solution that works on most skin tones and types.

Managing Acne With Hormone Testing

Hormone testing is a key aspect of acne treatment. Hormonal fluctuations can cause an increase in sebum production, which leads to breakouts. Your body may experience imbalances because of birth control, menopause, and polycystic ovary syndrome. By identifying the cause of your hormonal imbalance, you can address it efficiently and effectively.

Using Morpheus8 to Tackle Acne Scars

Morpheus8 uses fractional microneedling technology to improve acne scars. The device uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. This triggers the body’s natural healing process. As your skin repairs itself, your body creates new elastin and collagen. After Morpheus8, you’ll notice smoother, firmer, and more even-toned skin.

In addition, the device’s subdermal adipose remodeling technology helps to sculpt and contour the skin. Your acne scars will become less prominent after treatment. Like AviClear, there’s minimal downtime, making it a convenient option for those looking to fade their acne scars.

Acne looks different for everyone. At Boston Direct Health, we offer multi-versed acne treatment packages to treat your unique skin concerns.

ADVATx Laser Treatments for Acne

ADVATx laser treatments use an innovative combination of infrared laser energy and high-powered yellow to improve skin health and appearance. The highly effective treatment is acceptable for all skin tones and types to treat various concerns, including skin tone and texture, for a flawless, airbrushed look.

This laser treatment is FDA-cleared to treat acne, scars, warts, wrinkles, and more. The unique combination of 589 nm laser wavelength and 1319 nm laser wavelength achieves optimal solutions and eliminates abnormalities in the skin while also achieving total dermal restoration.

ADVATx treatments take anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes per session. The inflammatory reaction of the skin is short. You will often experience something similar to a mild sunburn (a light pinkish appearance) that fades within 24-48 hours. Your results are sometimes visible after one treatment. However, 3 to 4 treatments given in a 4-6 week interval schedule are recommended for optimal skin clearance and rejuvenation.

Combining AviClear with Retinol Skincare Products

Get even better AviClear results by combining the treatment with top-quality retinol skincare products. Retinol is a form of vitamin A that speeds up cell turnover. It also unclogs pores and stimulates collagen production. This makes it an effective ingredient in preventing future breakouts and maintaining your AviClear results.

Avene and ZO Skin Care offer an impressive range of retinol-based products. Our patients use them in combination with AviClear to achieve optimal results. For example, Avene RetrinAL 0.5 Refining Night Cream contains 0.5% retinol. It helps improve the appearance of acne scars and fine lines.

These products are best used under the guidance of a skincare professional like Boston Direct Health. We’ll make sure the products are appropriate for your skin type and condition.

AviClear vs. Other Prescription Acne Support

AviClear and prescription support, such as oral tretinoin (Accutane) and oral and topical doxycycline, both treat acne. But there are some key differences between their approaches.

AviClear doesn’t involve any chemicals or medication. Instead, it uses gentle technology to deliver energy to the skin. This energy kills bacteria and improves overall skin quality. Those who prefer not to take oral medication enjoy AviClear.

Accutane is a medication that treats severe acne. Like AviClear, it decreases your skin’s pore size and decreases acne-causing bacteria. Patients take Accutane for several months, and we may adjust the dosage based on their response to it.
