Acne and Acne Scar Treatments

The acne choice is clear: choose AviClear!

Introducing the latest in acne treatment solutions. AviClear is now available at Bellaire Dermatology. From the creators of Cutera, AviClear is the first FDA cleared laser device for the treatment of mild to severe acne. Bellaire Dermatology is thrilled to be the only Dermatology practices within the Greater Houston area with this revolutionary technology.

Acne Treatment With AviClear

If you’ve tried different acne treatments in the hopes of treating, eliminating, and preventing acne but have been left disappointed, we want to introduce you to a treatment called AviClear. This unique skin-perfecting treatment targets the root cause of acne in a way that oral medications and topical solutions cannot.

How It Works

AviClear is the first FDA-approved laser treatment that can successfully treat and eliminate mild, moderate, and even more severe types of acne. The laser energy shrinks sebaceous glands during the treatment to treat active acne and prevent future breakouts. It destroys acne-causing bacteria deep within the pores to help patients achieve clear skin in just three quick 30-minute treatments.

What To Expect

The AviClear treatment process is quick and comfortable since it uses the AviCool built-in technology to ensure patient comfort throughout the treatment process. Once your treatment is over, you won’t have to plan for any downtime. We do recommend that patients prepare for the treatment by staying hydrated and care for their skin afterward by using a gentle cleanser and quality sunscreen for the first seven days post-treatment.

Once you undergo treatment, you can expect to see some immediate improvements in the appearance of your skin as well as gradual improvements in the months following your treatment as your skin responds, heals, and clears.

What Are the Benefits?

The benefits of choosing AviClear to treat and improve acne-prone skin are that it doesn’t use harsh chemicals or require oral medication to improve the skin. Both harsh topical products and oral acne medications can lead to adverse side effects or negatively impact your health. This comfortable treatment process will not negatively impact your health in any way but will just work to clear your skin and improve your confidence in your complexion.

Acne Scar Treatment

We also offer different treatment options that can make a significant difference in the appearance of acne scars. We can combine these treatments to create a unique treatment plan based on your needs to optimize your results. During your initial consultation, we can review your acne scars in person and determine which treatments, or combination of treatments, will best help you achieve a uniform skin texture.


Morpheus8 is an effective and powerful microneedling device that combines collagen induction therapy techniques to improve different skin concerns. This device treats and improves the appearance of acne scars by delivering radiofrequency heat energy into the skin’s deeper layers and creating microchannels to improve skin texture.

The device takes a dual approach to collagen production. When used specifically to treat acne scars, it will force the body to grow new collagen to fill the area, increase skin volume, and make the acne scars less noticeable and your skin more uniform.

Fraxel Dual

Fraxel Dual is a unique laser treatment that improves the appearance of different skin concerns, including acne scars, by creating invisible laser columns in the skin to improve the complexion. Patients can expect improvements in the appearance and health of their skin after just one treatment and won’t have to worry about downtime or significant discomfort.

This laser treatment is an effective option for those with acne scars because it can treat surface scarring by creating wounds in the skin that the body responds to with increased collagen production, which treats the hollow areas created by acne scars.

IPL Cutera

We also offer IPL Cutera photofacial treatments that deliver light pulses into the skin to improve different skin concerns. We can use this device to target and improve the appearance of acne scars to help patients achieve improved skin texture.

The device can improve the appearance of acne scars by forcing the body to grow new collagen in the treatment area and can also improve the appearance of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that often affects the complexions of those with acne scars.

MixTo Fractional CO2 Laser

The MixTo Fractional CO2 Laser is a device that resurfaces the skin with a combination of carbon dioxide lasers and fractional technology. The treatment promotes new collagen production in the treatment area and specifically targets damaged skin cells to promote skin renewal and rejuvenation.

MixTo Fractional CO2 Laser treatments can make a significant difference in the appearance of even the most severe acne scars. A series of treatments with several weeks between each can help you live free of acne scars long-term.

Customizing Your Treatment Plan

Our goal is to create a completely customized treatment plan that meets the needs of each individual patient. Some patients may only need to address acne scars; others may only need to address active acne, while others want to address both acne and acne scars. We design each treatment plan based on the patient’s unique needs and ultimate skin care goals.

Am I a Candidate?

If you are currently suffering from acne or have acne scars that you want to treat, you may be a good candidate for one of our acne treatment plans. It’s important that patients not be pregnant or nursing at the time of treatment and commit to the recommended number of sessions to achieve the best results. We will perform a pre-treatment evaluation to confirm that one or more of these options is right for you.

Achieve Clear, Uniform Skin

Acne and acne scars shouldn’t define your skin; we offer treatments that can improve your complexion and confidence in more ways than one. If you’re interested in one or more of these treatment options, we can give you more information about how you can personally benefit from these powerful and effective devices that can target acne and improve the appearance of acne scars long-term.
