This FDA approved acne treatment utilizes a vacuum technique in conjunction with broadband light to treat acne of varying forms and severities on all skin types. This revolutionary technology in acne treatment clears the skin in two steps. First, the sebaceous glands are opened and cleared of blackheads. Next, light is utilized to destroy bacteria and to prevent the sebaceous glands from spreading oil. This treatment is effective for both treating active acne as well as preventing future outbreaks. This treatment can address acne that is unresponsive to oral and topical medications.
TheraClear Resurfacing Can:
- Diminish acne lesions of all types
- Help prevent future acne breakouts
- Reduce oil production
- Create clearer skin
Our Customized Approach
Acne is the most common skin disorder that affects over 80% of people of all ages. It is not uncommon for acne patients to have a long, frustrating history of attempting to clear their acne with various cleansers, creams, topical and oral medications without success. The key to clearer skin is to attack acne at all levels including in office procedures and diligently following at home care instructions. The number of treatments needed is based on the condition of each individual. During your consultation with one of our Skin Care Specialist your acne concerns will be discussed and you will be provided with a customized treatment plan to achieve your goals.
Day of Treatment
Your TheraClear™ treatment will have minimal discomfort and zero downtime. It takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes to perform a TheraClear™ treatment for the full face. A broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher will be applied to your skin before leaving. It is critical that you continue to protect your skin from sun exposure after treatment.
Some patients experience a mild, tingling, sunburn sensation that is accompanied by minor swelling or bruising. These symptoms quickly resolve themselves in less than 24 hours post treatment. You will see visible improvements in your acne two to three days following your treatment with a fresher feel and appearance.
