AviClear by Cutera® at Acne Treatment Clinics
Drug-Free Acne Clearance
AviClear Acne Laser Treatment by Cutera is the first FDA approved acne treatment for the full spectrum of acne ranging from almost clear to hormonal to severe. It is the ideal solution for preteens and teenagers as well as those suffering from adult onset acne. The AviClear Acne laser was studied in all skin tones. The treatment was found to be safe, tolerable and effective with longterm durability of results in participants followed up to 2 years. The studies showed a comparable clearance to treatment with accutane.
What is the AviClear Treatment Like?
The AviClear acne treatment for the face takes 30 minutes to perform. The AviClear Acne Laser treatment has minimal side effects compared to topical and oral medications for acne. The AviClear treatment is very tolerable for patients. The AviClear device is configured with contact cooling on its applicator. This cooling is delivered during the firing of each laser pulse. The cooling serves a dual purpose, it protects the skin surrounding the acne glands allowing the laser to to effectively treat its target (the sebum and sebum producing cells) while protecting the surrounding skin, minimizing risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation PIH. The contact cooling also makes the delivery of the laser pulses very tolerable by distracting from the heat sensation. AviClear is recommended in a treatment series of 3 sessions one month apart. The sebaceous glands are targeted with each treatment. Much like with any acne treatment it takes time to fully gain the effect from the treatment. One’s acne may flare during the initial weeks following the start of treatment. There can be a typical acne flare, or a purge. This doesn’t mean that the treatment is not working. Best clearance during the studies was observed at 3 months following the 3rd treatment and even better overall clearance at 6 months following the third treatment.
How Much does the AviClear Treatment Cost?
The AviClear Acne Treatment has a manufacturer required minimum price of $1000 per session. You will see prices ranging from $3000 to $5000 for the series of 3 sessions. Prior to your treatment you download the app from the device manufacturer, Cutera and will get a QR code which will allow the initiation of the treatment on the device. This is a good thing as it avoids copycat or knockoff devices claiming to offer the AviClear treatment.
I could not be happier or more impressed with the treatment and service at Procerus Skin Care in Ann Arbor Michigan. I had deep pitted acne scarring for 20 years. I had tried everything available to get the scarring to the surface, with no improvement. Dr. Gilmore did a combination of Co2 with PRP, Thread lift, and Bellafill. I already look like a new person, and I expect to see even more improvement over the next few months. I can also speak to her artistry with Botox and Dysport. Oh! and she microneedled my neck to plump, smooth perfection. I wasted a lot of resources on very little improvement over the last 20 years. Dr. Kathleen will only perform procedures that will give you results, and I appreciate that! *
Professional, courtesy and honest. What a refreshing staff!
Best hydra facial I’ve had in Ann Arbor. They carry Botox (actual Botox brand) unlike many med spas in the area.
Dr. Kathleen and her staff are beyond wonderful. Dr. K is the best combination of medical expertise and bedside manner. She’s incredibly knowledgeable and goes out of her way to explain, answer questions, and ensure the client understands and is comfortable and confident with their treatment(s). Her practice is of the highest quality and well worth a visit. I highly recommend her on all fronts. And her staff is extremely professional, communicative / responsive, accommodating, and friendly. You want great treatment options / service offerings, great results, and a great experience - please take my word, Procerus is the right spot.

I had a friend come with me because she was curious about dysport and Botox. Jamie took the time to answer all of her questions and answer my questions. She also talk to me about future stuff that I have been thinking about. I got dysport in two places, it was seamless and painless and it’s been less than 24 hours and I already know I’m going to love the results.
