The Reality of Acne for Teens & Adults: Missed Moments

Dealing with acne can be a real challenge for both teens and adults alike. It’s not just about a few pimples here and there – it’s about the frustration and self-consciousness that often come with it. Whether it’s stubborn blackheads, painful inflammation, or relentless breakouts, acne can really take a toll on one’s confidence and quality of life.

If you or your teen are struggling with acne, there are treatment options you can consider before jumping into prescription medicines. Keep reading to learn more about the impacts of acne on mental health, and how we can help clients in northern Tasmania combat acne through an innovative treatment that recently launched in Australia.

The Detrimental Effects of Acne on Teens & Adults

Being stressed out about breakouts isn’t shallow – it can truly impact the way you live your life, whether you’re a teen or an adult. A study by Cutera Inc. found that:

  • 77% of moderate to severe acne sufferers have missed moments due to acne
  • 79% of moderate to severe acne sufferers admit acne holds them back from doing what they want
  • 1 in 4 moderate to severe acne sufferers have missed over 10 important moments due to acne

What Clear Skin Would Mean to Acne Sufferers

While clear skin might seem like a simple achievement to some, for those battling acne, it signifies far more than just a blemish-free appearance. Recent studies have found that 90% of moderate to severe acne sufferers said having clear skin would change the way they would live their life.

The Latest Innovation in Acne Treatment: AviClear™

AviClear™ is the first and original FDA-cleared energy device for the treatment of mild, moderate and severe acne – and it’ll be available at Victoria’s Cosmetic Medical Clinic in Launceston, Tasmania at the end of June (consultations are being booked now).

In just three, 30-minute laser treatments, you can experience lasting clearance without significant side effects. It’s a no-prescription solution for the treatment of acne on the face and back.

How AviClear Works

Acne forms when sebum, the oily substance on your skin, combines with dead skin cells and clogs your pores. Most acne treatments target other things that cause acne, but not the production of sebum.

AviClear™ uses the power of laser light to selectively target and suppress sebaceous glands, eliminating acne at the source without the need for prescription medications. This treatment works on all skin types and skin tones.

The Results

AviClear requires three treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. According to Cutera Inc., 92% of patients saw at least half of their acne resolve at 12 months following treatments. And results may continue to improve with time – even several months after your treatments sessions are finished.

Results are individual and may vary*
