TheraClear™ is a breakthrough in acne treatment technology and we are proud to be preferred providers of TheraClear Acne Treatment in Denver. TheraClear is a quick treatment which combines light and vacuum for fast and visible reduction in acne and associated redness. By removing the sebum and lightening the redness, acne lesions flatten and then disappear.
The TheraClear™ Acne System is often used without any of the traditional acne therapies or it can be combined with a variety of treatments.
Acne can be treated successfully if two basic conditions are addressed.
- Prevent the oil gland openings from plugging up.
- Decrease the bacteria that live in the “plugs” that ultimately lead to inflammation.
The TheraClear™ Acne System successfully treats both inflammatory and cystic acne – without medication, ointment or cream. A vacuum cleans pores by extracting build up of sebaceous material. A broad band light destroys acne causing bacteria and reduces oil production. Regular treatments have been very successful in controlling acne.
Without oral medication, topical treatments or harsh chemicals, the TheraClear™ Acne System removes the cause of acne during a few comfortable office visits.
Step 1.:Vacuum: Deep cleanses the pore by extracting the blocked sebaceous material.
Step 2: Broadband Light:
Light targets porphryns, destroying the P. acne bacteria, reduces sebum production, and dramatically reduces the redness and pigmentary changes associated with acne.
TheraClear™ can be performed in as little as 10 minutes, depending on the size of the treatement area.
Depending on your individual condition, multiple treatments may be required for your best results. Your provider will discuss your treatment plan with you. Most acne patients require 4 or 5 treatments every week to two weeks. Usually after one treatment, there is very little improvement. After the second treatment, the patient should notice a modest improvement. The third treatment, however seems to produce the most significant improvement and after the fourth and fifth treatment, most if not all the acne lesions should be gone.
During this series of treatments, the patient may remain on any traditional acne therapies they feel comfortable using. They also should maintain a good skin care regiment which their doctor will discuss with them. Following the final treatment, the patient may also remain on any therapies they feel comfortable with and also must maintain a good skin care regiment.
Most patients require a single touch up treatment every three to four months.
Most people feel little to no discomfort during the treatment. Most people experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling or bruising.
The TheraClear™ Acne System is convenient, simple and effective and boasts a 90% success rate for inflammatory and cystic acne. After completing treatment, your skin’s pores are cleared of oils, dead skin skills and bacteria. Pores may appear smaller and redness is reduced.
Patients who have complete a course of treatments typically note:
- Fewer breakouts
- Reduction in the severity of Breakouts
- Reduction in the duration of breakouts
- Reduction in the oiliness of skin
Patients typically stay clear for three months post-treatment. Those on maintenance regimens have stayed clear for a year or more.
