  1. How Does TheraClear®X Work?

TheraClear®X’s unique coupling of its vacuum technology with broadband light delivery distinguishes it from other acne treatments by incorporating a unique suction component. Unlike conventional methods, TheraClear®X’s suction mechanism effectively extracts sebum, dead skin cells, from clogged pores. Now add the targeted broadband light, which helps erase acne-causing bacteria and reduce inflammation caused by acne flare-ups. You have an effective dual-action approach, ensuring a more thorough and efficient treatment process.

TheraClear®X can address acne concerns on the face, back, and chest, providing acne treatments for individuals with acne in harder-to-reach areas.

  1. Is TheraClear®X Painful?

Unlike some conventional acne treatments, TheraClear®X offers a comfortable experience utilizing a liquid-cooled handheld device, ensuring comfort and precision during treatment sessions. Patients may experience mild suction and a warming sensation during the vacuum process. Moreover, there is minimal to no downtime associated with the treatment, allowing individuals to resume their daily activities immediately afterward.

  1. What Skin Types Can Utilize TheraClear®X Treatments?

Whether you have sensitive skin or not, TheraClear®X is a safe and effective option for acne. During an initial consultation, your California Skin Institute dermatologist or advanced practitioner will assess your acne concerns and develop a personalized acne treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals.

  1. How Long Will It Take to See The Results Of TheraClear®X?
