Speaking to LiVDerm of this breakthrough, Dr. Goldberg states, “These results floored me. I never expected results from any device that could rival isotretinoin, but at three months after final treatment the results were very similar to the oral agent.”
Working to target acne at the source, AviClear reduces the amount of sebum production. According to Dr. Goldberg, over a mere series of three 30-minute treatments, acne was visibly cleared, and early data suggest that the results last as long as nine months post-treatment.
Due to the remarkable results it produces and how well-received it is by patients, it is seen as a major breakthrough for long-time acne sufferers and dermatologists alike.
AviClear is already becoming a staple of many dermatology practices, particularly because it:
Is completely drug-free
Has no harmful side effects
Requires no downtime
Is tolerated well
Treats acne at the source
Produces long-lasting results
Is suitable for all skin types
Dermatologists are especially excited about AviClear due to the fact that there are no harmful side effects. Many of the topical and oral alternatives to treat acne have several harsh side effects. Accutane, for example, although working in much the same way as AviClear, targeting acne at the source, can produce some extremely unpleasant effects.
Dermatologist, Jeffrey Fromowitz, MD, explains that although AviClear functions similarly to Accutane, there are no risks of serious adverse effects such as night blindness, increased cholesterol, and dry eyes, lips, and skin.
As with any procedure or medication, not everyone will enjoy the same benefits. Dr. Goldberg adds that “Much like we have seen with Accutane, there will be some people who will need further treatment, but without the same side effects.”
As far as acne treatment options go, AviClear is definitely among the safest, providing the most remarkable results. Dermatologists are now able to offer their acne patients a chemical-free, longer-lasting option for their acne problems.
