What is Acleara Acne Treatment?
Acleara is a unique, two-step acne treatment that combines effective pore extraction through gentle suction and light energy to destroy acne-causing bacteria. While other skin treatments can focus on preventative care, not all are performed on acneic skin. Acleara can effectively treat active outbreaks by cleansing pores and removing oil, debris, and bacteria from the skin without harsh chemicals or painful techniques.
Who is a Candidate for Acleara Acne Treatment?
Patients who benefit most from Acleara treatment are those with acne that does not respond to medications or skincare regimens. Certain medications for acne sometimes come with side effects that patients might prefer to avoid, and some cosmetic skin treatments may not be indicated for acneic skin. Acleara is a comprehensive solution that specifically targets acne in many different types of skin, including oily skin or large pores.
What Happens During Acleara Acne Treatment?
Acleara is non-invasive and does not require any anesthesia— in fact most patients are comfortable during the procedure. After the skin is cleansed, the handpiece is applied to the surface where the vacuum technology comfortably removes debris, bacteria, and oil from the pores. Then, the handpiece emits light energy to destroy any bacteria still present in the area that can cause further acne outbreaks. Overall, this treatment can take from ten to fifteen minutes to complete.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
Acleara does not require any downtime and patients can resume their normal activities immediately. Our aestheticians recommend regular sunscreen use after the treatment since the skin can become photosensitive. Most patients notice results immediately after their first treatment, with additional treatments producing even better results. These can be spaced apart by one to two weeks, with four to five treatments as the recommended package. During your consultation with our Dr. Kayastha and our skincare experts, a customized treatment plan will be created that benefits your skin most.
