patient receiving Botox Cosmetic injections at Spring Street Dermatology in NYC


Around 50 million Americans suffer acne each year, making it the most common skin condition in the United States. AviClear™ is the first device of its kind that minimizes acne for all skin types and tones by targeting the source of breakouts.

Acne is a chronic skin condition that causes red, inflamed bumps. It develops when hair follicles and sebaceous glands are clogged with oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells.

While topical treatments can help eliminate acne-causing bacteria, they aren’t effective for everyone.

AviClear is the first and only device FDA-approved to reduce mild to severe acne breakouts without topical ointments or oral medications. A breakthrough device, AviClear targets acne at the source by selectively treating specific sebaceous glands.

With built-in AviCool™ contact cooling technology, the device improves comfort and reduces downtime for safe, effective acne reduction. In clinical trials, more than 90% of participants reported long-lasting results from AviClear treatments. Future breakouts are often less frequent and intense once the treatment takes effect.


AviClear uses 1726nm wavelength laser energy to suppress the sebaceous glands, where acne initially starts to form. When the sebaceous glands overproduce sebum — an oily substance that moisturizes and hydrates the skin — it can clog the pores. Sebum tends to mix with dead skin cells and bacteria, leading to inflammation that manifests on the skin’s surface. Painful red bumps start to develop, which can diminish a person’s self-esteem.

AviClear selectively pinpoints and deactivates acne-causing sebaceous glands to treat acne at the source. The treatment stops these glands from producing too much sebum and prevents the formation of clogged pores.

What can i expect from my AVICLEAR TREATMENT?

AviClear is a relatively fast, comfortable treatment that takes only 30 minutes and requires no downtime.

When you arrive at Spring Street Dermatology in New York City, your dermatologist, physician associate (PA), or nurse practitioner (NP) evaluates your skin and asks about any oral medications, topical ointments, or minimally invasive treatments you’ve tried. The physician reviews your medical history and asks detailed questions regarding your acne triggers and the frequency of your breakouts.

With built-in AviCool technology that simultaneously cools the skin during treatment, many patients do not need anesthetics. Your dermatologist targets specific sebaceous glands with the AviClear device, holding it close to your skin.

What can i expect after my Aviclear treatment?

While there is no downtime after AviClear treatment, your skin may be red and tender for a few days. These side effects usually resolve quickly. Use a gentle cleanser and apply SPF 50+ sunscreen for at least 7 days to protect your skin while it heals.

Acne breakouts are common and expected for 1-3 weeks after AviClear treatment. Once your sebaceous glands are suppressed, and sebum production slows, you can expect clearer, smoother skin.

How Many AviClear Treatments Will I Need?

The experts at Spring Street Dermatology typically recommend at least three AviClear treatments, spaced out 2-4 weeks apart, to permanently reduce acne flare-ups. Your provider may adjust your treatment plan to achieve your desired results.

How Long until i see results from Aviclear?

Many patients experience clearer skin and reduced acne breakouts within a couple of weeks after their final AviClear treatment. Peak results are usually visible after 4-12 weeks, once the targeted sebaceous glands are suppressed.
