What is TheraClear (Acleara) Acne Treatment?

The FDA-approved vacuum clears your pores, eliminating the potential for breakouts. Treatment usually takes no longer than 15 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated.
Am I a good candidate for TheraClear treatment?
TheraClear can treat a wide array of blemishes in patients of all skin types.
Is it painful?
No, most patients report zero pain or discomfort with their TheraClear acne treatment.
Acne Treatment Recovery
There is no downtime associated with TheraClear treatment. You can immediately return to work, school or other routine activities. Your skin may be dry immediately after treatment but your dermatologist can help you manage this as appropriate. You may also experience a mild tingling sensation similar to sunburn. This should subside within one to two days.
What results can I expect from TheraClear treatment?
TheraClear’s suction technology will clear your pores of oil, dead skill cells as well as the bacteria that cause acne. Once free of these contaminants, your pores will appear smaller and less noticeable. Blemishes will be reduced and blackheads eliminated within two days.
While you will notice improvement after just one treatment, your physician will likely recommend multiple treatments spaced over several weeks to yield the best results.
