With a high patient satisfaction rate, AviClear allows you to remain drug-free for years after treatment.

Our experienced team of over 20 years offers a range of customized services to address the unique needs of each patient, including skin care routines, medical facials, chemical peels, microneedling with RF and exosomes, steroid injections, prescription medication, laser treatments, IPL, and the newest FDA-approved laser treatment for acne, AviClear.

What is AviClear?

AviClear is a laser treatment that uses a 1726-nanometer wavelength to target and suppress sebaceous glands, the oil-producing glands in the skin. The laser light is absorbed by the sebaceous glands, causing them to produce less oil. This, in turn, leads to fewer breakouts.

AviClear is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types and tones. It is also non-ablative, which means that it does not damage the skin’s surface. This makes it a good option for people who are looking for a treatment that does not require downtime.

Side effects of AviClear are generally mild and temporary. They may include redness, swelling, and dryness of the skin. These side effects usually resolve within a few days.

If you are considering AviClear, be sure to talk to your doctor about whether it is the right treatment for you.


AviClear is typically performed in a series of three treatments, spaced four weeks apart. Most patients see significant improvement after the first treatment, and the results are typically maintained for up to two years.
