    Stop Adult Acne in Its Tracks with the Treatment That Dermatology Experts are Buzzing About


    (BPT) – While hormonal acne tends to be associated with the teenage years, it can affect adults of all ages, and is especially common in women with monthly hormonal changes and the onset of menopause. Some adults continue to get acne well into their 30s, 40s and even 50s, and you may even get acne for the first time as an adult, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.1 So what’s the source of these breakouts? Overproduction of sebum is to blame and is one of the leading causes of acne at all ages.2
    Enter AviClear™, the future of clear skin, and the first and original FDA-cleared energy device for the treatment of mild, moderate and severe acne.3 According to Mary Jane Salo, Family Nurse Practitioner at Wellness Marketplace Spa in American Canyon, CA, “AviClear treats acne at the source by selectively targeting and suppressing the oil glands. We can selectively deliver energy and damage the glands to suppress sebum production.
    “My patients are very excited about this safe and effective acne laser treatment. I have seen results after their very first AviClear session, and they continue to see improvement over the course of three treatments, which demonstrates the long-term effects of this novel therapy. Another plus is that no topical numbing is needed and patients can go back to their normal activities right after a treatment,” says Nurse Salo.
    Among the benefits of AviClear, when compared to over-the-counter creams and topical medications, is that it delivers clear skin that lasts. “We are seeing that results continue to improve over time for our clients. It works for all skin types and severities of acne from mild to moderate and even severe breakouts,” says Heather Callahan, PA-C at Dermestetics in Vienna, VA. “They are loving these treatments because it is quick, safe and comes with adjustable comfort due to the addition of AviCool™ cooling technology. Patients can get back to work and their busy lives immediately, while achieving the results they want quickly and effectively,” she says.
    Studies have shown long-lasting results with up to two-year clearance that continues to improve over time, even after the initial series of treatments are complete.4 Ninety-three percent of patients saw visible improvement after their final treatment session with two-thirds of patients assessed as clear or almost clear 12 months after their final treatment session.3
    So, if acne breakouts are affecting your quality of life and stopping you from enjoying social events, find an AviClear practice near you and say buh-bye to stubborn acne once and for all.
