We are proud to announce the arrival of this revolutionary technology for acne.

We are equally proud to be one of the early adopters in Canada to have this breakthrough technology in our clinic for the treatment of acne and inactive acne!

What is AviClear™?


AviClear™’s 1726 nm wavelength treats acne at the source by targeting and suppressing the sebaceous gland.

AviClear™ is the only laser on the market that treats acne at its source.

Designed with patient comfort in mind, AviClear™ is enhanced with patented skin-contact cooling for an optimal and safe treatment experience.


Who is a candidate for AviClear™?

Almost everyone!

Unlike many other lasers, AviClear ™is a laser that is suitable for all skin types including dark skin due to its breakthrough technology. Instead of targeting and adversely affecting the melanin found in darker skin, AviClear™ treats the source of the problem which is the sebaceous gland that causes and worsens acne breakouts.

“This unique wavelength (1726nm) is only absorbed by the sebaceous gland — the culprit of acne — not by pigment,” says Dr. David J. Goldberg, which is the reason why this laser won’t cause hyperpigmentation in patients with deeper skin tones. “In our FDA study and in real life, we treated and are treating the lightest and darkest of skin colors with equal benefits.”

Age isn’t a factor either.

Anybody with acne will respond to the treatment.

From the young teenager to the hormonal cyclical acne patient to the post-menopausal patient. This treatment can treat all generations.

How does this laser differ from other laser treatments for acne?

AviClear™ is different

AviClear™ is a laser treatment that specifically targets the source of the oily substance in your skin (sebum). After treatment, you will produce less oil and your acne will get better and stay better.

In clinical studies, 91% of patients responded to treatment and 80% saw at least half of their acne clear.
Results continue to improve with time — even several months after the treatment sessions are finished.

AviClear ™is an FDA-approved laser that treats mild to severe acne by targeting the source of the oily substance on your skin without the use of topical or oral acne medications. This is a unique laser technology because of the wavelength it uses, which selectively targets the oil glands (sebaceous glands) in the skin.

Does this treatment replace medications for acne?

This is the first FDA and Health Canada approved energy-based device set to replace Accutane® by providing an effective non-pharmacological treatment for mild, moderate, or severe acne.

AviClear™’s efficacy is similar to a full course of Accutane®, but without the baggage of the side effects of Accutane®. It is therefore, ideally suited for those acne patients who either have contraindications to Accutane®, in whom Accutane® was ineffective or who are unable to tolerate the side effects of Accutane® or are simply unwilling to have systemic side effects of Accutane®.

Is There Any Downtime with AviClear™ Treatments?

There is minimal downtime with AviClear™ treatments. Your skin may be slightly red and inflamed for one hour to two days after the treatment.

A flare up of acne may occur after your treatment.
This can be treated with topical treatments recommended by your doctor. This is temporary and will resolve.

You can resume your normal activities shortly after your session

What Results Can I Expect with AviClear™ Treatments?
You can expect a progressive improvement in your acne over the course of three treatments, one month apart.

What are the side effects of Accutane®?

The most severe side effects are rare and include birth defects, mental health problems and stomach issues.

Common side effects of Accutane® (isotretinoin) include:

  • Back pain, joint pain
  • Chapped, dry lips
  • Dry eyes
  • Dry nose, nosebleeds
  • Dry skin, rash
  • Itching
  • Thinning hair
  • Vision problems

What are other available treatments for acne?

  • Topical Retinoids
  • Benzoyl Peroxide and Sulfur
  • Spironolactone
  • Birth Control Pills
  • Antibiotics
  • Isotretinoin (formerly known as Accutane®)
  • Facials and Chemical Peels
  • Laser Resurfacing
  • Microneedling – mostly for acne scars
  • Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
  • Filler Injections

What should I expect from the treatment of AviClear™?

The patient may feel a slight warming sensation as the laser works to target the oil glands.

There is no numbing (i.e. anesthetic) required as the laser is equipped with a special skin cooling technology to minimize discomfort.

How many sessions are required?

For best results, we recommend a series of three treatments spaced approximately one month apart as optimal results are usually seen after the completion of the full series.

What is the appearance of the skin after treatment?

Mild symptoms such as inflammation and redness may occur.

Acne may flare for a few days after treatment. You may continue to use any prescription acne medications simultaneously. Although results are not guaranteed, 90% of patients reported being happy with the results in clinical studies.

How long do AviClear™ results last?

In addition to reducing existing acne, clinical trials show that future breakout episodes are shorter, less intense, and more less frequent following the AviClear™ treatment.

In clinical studies, 91 percent of patients responded to treatment and 80 percent saw at least half of their acne clear.
Nine out of 10 patients were satisfied or very satisfied with their results one month after treatment.

What are the contraindications for AviClear™?

  • Pregnancy
  • Nursing

As with any other laser or cosmetic treatments, since we cannot perform studies on pregnant or lactating women, we will not perform lasers on these patients.

Is the treatment safe?

AviClear™ is equipped with exclusive AviCool™ sapphire skin cooling and smart sensors to maximize patient comfort and safety and maintain skin’s temperature during treatment. No unexpected or serious post-treatment effects occurred.

In summary:

This revolutionary treatment has

  • NO downtime
  • NO more drugs
  • NO more antibiotics
  • Treats ALL skin types
  • Treats ALL ages

As a result, AviClear™ will change the face and treatment of acne in the future!
