AviClear™ by Cutera is a highly sought-after laser procedure designed to combat acne. The first energy device to be FDA-approved for acne treatment, AviClear™ applies wavelengths of powerful light energy to the sebaceous glands in order to curb the production of sebum, an oily substance that can cause acne by clogging pores. The treatment can reduce the appearance of acne and even inhibit future breakouts while creating a clearer, fresher facial aesthetic.
Our award-winning plastic surgeon, Mark E. Richards, MD, is excited to add AviClear™ to our vast list of non-surgical options. If you are looking for a treatment that can address mild to severe acne, schedule a consultation with Dr. Richards to learn more about AviClear™.
What Are the Benefits of Aviclear™?
When administered by a qualified surgeon or aesthetician, AviClear™ can offer benefits such as:
- Significant reduction of acne at various levels of severity
- Possible prevention of future bouts of acne*
- Considered safe for virtually all skin tones and types
- Typically a very brief treatment session with no downtime necessary
How Is Aviclear™ Performed?
AviClear™ is generally administered in a series of three sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. During the session, your provider will gently glide a small handheld device over your skin. The device, designed to deliver controlled wavelengths of light energy to the sebaceous glands, is also equipped with AviCool™, a feature that can regulate your body temperature and keep your skin comfortably cool during the session.
AviClear™ treatments are typically only half an hour long, and no downtime is usually required. The AviCool™ mechanism should prevent any major discomfort, but some patients feel a slight “snapping” sensation during the session. This is generally minor and should fade when the session ends.
How Much Does Aviclear™ Cost?
At our practice, the cost of AviClear™ ranges from approximately $3,300 to $4,200 for the 3 session treatment protocol; however, pricing is contingent upon several factors, including the need for additional treatment sessions and/or the incorporation of other procedures (e.g. cleansing facials post treatment, during the purge process) or the purchase of skin care products.
During your initial consultation, we will provide you with a personalized quote. In the meantime, please feel free to explore our financing options, and note that eligible patients may be able to finance their care through PatientFi or United Medical Credit.
