If you have ever suffered from acne, you know how frustrating and persistent this condition can be. Bonakdar Institute offers a revolutionary acne treatment called Acleara™ for Newport Beach and other Orange County residents whose acne doesn't respond to traditional methods of acne removal. This procedure helps control future acne outbreaks by reducing sebum (natural oil associated with acne) production while also clearing your current acne for both immediate and long-term results.

Your Acleara Treatment

Acleara combines a gentle vacuum mechanism with warm pulses of therapeutic light to remove dirt and debris while destroying acne bacteria beneath the skin and reducing inflammation. Just 1 treatment can take 30 minutes or less and you will immediately notice that your skin seems less oily. This is a great option for people whose acne does not respond to antibiotics, or for those who want to avoid the systemic effects of prescription medications.

Acleara is suitable for most all skin types and can be used on the face, chest and back. For best results, Acleara is used as part of your comprehensive acne program, which may include other skin treatments like microdermabrasion or acne facials.

Knowing What to Expect

Treatment with Acleara is fast, simple and does not require anesthesia, numbing agents or cooling gels. The Acleara hand piece will be placed on your skin, and vacuum technology will comfortably remove dead skin cells, dirt and oil. A broad-spectrum filtered light is then directed at the skin to eliminate acne bacteria. Finally, the pores are cleansed at the end of treatment. With multiple treatments, you can expect:

  • Improved skin texture and tone
  • A reduction in the size and prominence of pores
  • Fewer acne breakouts
  • Clearer, more vibrant skin

After your treatment, you will find that your skin feels less oily and appears refreshed. Within the next 2 days, your current acne will begin to clear. There may be some mild side effects after treatment similar to sunburn, such as redness. These typically only last 2 to 24 hours and should not interfere with your normal routine.

Bonakdar Institute usually recommends a series of 6 to 8 treatments for optimal results. To improve the look of previous acne scars, UltraPusle® FX or Fraxel® DUAL may be recommended.
