AviClear received FDA 510k clearance on March 24, 2022, following the Company’s successful product development process and extensive clinical evaluation. Designed with physician and patient needs in mind, AviClear significantly reduces the severity and frequency of acne following three brief sessions without any adjunctive pain therapy. AviClear rapidly delivers laser energy in combination with AviCool™, a unique handpiece feature that provides unmatched contact cooling capability, delivering a more comfortable treatment experience.

“The patient I treated with the AviClear device has suffered from moderate to severe acne for the past several years and has been seeking a safe, effective, and drug-free treatment option,” said Julie Harper, M.D., Past President of the American Acne and Rosacea Society. “In light of the recent FDA clearance, I advised her that this new treatment option involved no downtime and has had no adverse events throughout its extensive trialing. The AviCool feature allows me to deliver a highly effective treatment without any anesthetic. All of these benefits made my patient very excited to try it.”

"Now that AviClear treatments have begun, we look forward to partnering with physicians to redefine the acne armamentarium,” said David Mowry, CEO of Cutera. “We are completely focused on eliminating the complexity and administrative burdens associated with current acne treatment options. To deliver on that commitment, we are proud to provide Avi360, a comprehensive practice support program that makes it easier for dermatologists to acquire the system and market it effectively to their patients. From a clinical standpoint, our novel and differentiated approach offers a safer, simpler, and effective solution to this chronic skin condition.”

AviClear is rolling out to physicians throughout the United States over the course of 2022. Doctors and patients are encouraged to visit to sign up for updates on product availability and local treatment providers.
