TheraClear™, previously known as Acleara™, is a breakthrough acne treatment that combines a gentle vacuum with pulses of laser energy to improve the appearance of skin. This FDA- approved acne treatment technology is safe to use on all skin types.

How does TheraClear™ work?

  • Position: The hand piece device is placed directly on the treatment area.
  • Cleanse: TheraClear™ uses vacuum technology to safely and comfortably remove acne-causing bacteria and thoroughly cleanse the skin.
  • Treat: Therapeutic light from the hand piece destroys bacteria.
  • Complete: TheraClear™ treatment is completed when the pores are cleansed.

The TheraClear™ system combines two different methods for effectively treating acne. First, vacuum therapy is applied to the skin to unclog pores and rid the skin of blackheads. Next, a light is used to eradicate the bacteria associated with acne production.

In general, acne can be treated if two basic conditions are addressed:

  • First, it’s important to stop the oil glands from becoming plugged. TheraClear™ accomplishes this by using a vacuum to clean pores and extract the buildup of sebaceous material.
  • Next, it’s crucial to reduce the bacteria that resides in the glands, which can ultimately lead to inflammation. A broadband light (BBL™) is used to destroy acne-causing bacteria and decrease oil production.

Who is a good candidate for TheraClear™?

Nearly everyone who suffers from acne can make a good candidate for TheraClear™ acne treatment. Since TheraClear™ is gentle on the skin, it can even be used by teenagers. During your consultation, you and your provider will discuss your need for TheraClear™, examine before and after pictures, and ultimately determine if this treatment option is right for you.
