STATE OF THE ART
Newport Beach Dermatology & Plastic Surgery is proud to offer our acne patients a new solution to use instead of, or in conjunction with, their current acne treatments for superior results. The TheraClear™ Acne Therapy System is a break-through acne treatment that combines a gentle vacuum with pulses of specially-filtered light to help clear your pores and treat acne outbreaks. The benefits of the TheraClear system are clear: It will cleanse pores, it will kill bacteria and calm inflammation, it is fast, there is no downtime, and it is easy and well tolerated. TheraClear is approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat a wide range of acne in all skin types, and is billed through insurance. Otherwise, there is a $150 cost per visit. For optimal results, the TheraClear Therapy System should be administered every two weeks for four treatments. In some cases it is recommended to be used in combination with a light AHA peel, which will penetrate the freshly cleansed pores further and allow for maximum healing for inflamed acneic skin. This procedure is offered by our Medical Aesthetician, Lindsay Milewski. Most PPO insurances will cover the TheraClear treatment; with AHA peel being offered when used in conjunction on the same day as the TheraClear treatment for an additional $75.
