Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How does CLEARLIGHT™ work?

A. ClearLight™’s unique APC technology reduces P. acnes bacteria safely and effectively within the skin.

  • Before treatment: A pimple forms around the hair follicle opening, causing inflammatory acne with an abnormal amount of bacteria called P. acnes.
  • During treatment: ClearLight™’s APC technology uses intense, 405-420nm wavelength light, which permeates the tissue to reach the P. acnes target safely and effectively.
  • After treatment: The P. acnes bacteria have been eliminated.
Q. What side effects can I expect after treatment and how long will they last?

A. Monthly maintenance ClearLight™ treatments usually help control acne breakouts for four to six months; after that another treatment series may be necessary.

Q. How many treatments will I need and how will they be spaced?

A. We can tell you about the treatment plan that is right for you. It will involve a series of ClearLight™ treatments, typically twice a week for 4 weeks. It is important to keep the treatment appointments recommended by your doctor. By following the treatment plan, you’ll see maximum results and enjoy clearer skin with ClearLight™.

Q. Does ClearLight™ treatment hurt?

A. With ClearLight™, a typical treatment session takes only 15 minutes. You lie comfortably while the therapeutic light is applied; sometimes there is a slight warm sensation. ClearLight™ treatments are described as easy, even relaxing, but most importantly — painless and safe. Patients often listen to music while being treated.

Q. What should I expect after ClearLight™ treatment?

A. ClearLight™ effectively clears 70% of mild to moderate inflammatory acne in eight weeks. Inflammatory acne includes red bumps and pus bumps. An occasional patient will have a flare up sometime between the 2nd and 5th treatment, which should resolve with continued treatment.*

*Individual results may vary.

Q. What side effects can I expect after treatment and how long will they last?

A. ClearLight™ is one of the safest acne treatments available. Its APC technology uses light that is UV -safe. Some patients experience residual redness where an inflamed blemish was located. The redness will go away over time.

Q. What precautions should I take after treatment?

A. We recommend applying prescription acne topical treatment after ClearLight treatments to improve results.

Q. How much improvement can I expect?

A. No two individuals are the same, and results may vary. Some conditions can improve dramatically in some patients and not respond in others. Approximately 15-20% of patients will not improve due to other types of bacteria or other causes of acne.
