Hamilton Cosmetic Dermatology now has AviClear – the very first Clinical Acne Laser Device in Canada.
We are thrilled to be the first dermatology clinic in Canada to offer the new AviClear revoluntionary new acne treatment – the first FDA and Health Canada approved energy based device set to replace Accutane by providing an effective non-pharmacological treatment for mild, moderate, or severe acne. Aviclear demonstrated efficacy similar to a full course of Accutane, but without the baggage of side effects of Accutane. It is therefore ideally suited for those acne patients who either have contraindications to Accutane, in whom Accutane was ineffective, who are unable to tolerate the side effects of Accutane, or simply unwilling to have systemic side effects of Accutane.
The treatment regimen consists of three 30-minute sessions, administered one month apart. The treatment is well tolerated, and does not require topical anaesthetic. There is no downtime after the procedure. Apart from a mild, transient redness, there are no reportable side effects. Similar to Accutane, a small percentage of patients with severe acne may experience an acne flare after the first session, with subsequent clearance of their acne upon completion of the full course of therapy.
This treatment is truly revolutionary, and long overdue, as we have not seen any major breakthroughs in acne treatment in almost 40 years since the introduction of Accutane in 1983.
We also provide effective treatment options for acne scarring. Secret RF is a very effective radio frequency device that treats various types of scars, including acne scars.
The emotional impact of acne cannot be underestimated. Unfortunately, even mild untreated acne results in permanent scarring. Any degree of physical or emotional scarring warrants proactive therapy.
Clearer skin in a flash. This is the future of acne treatment.

Your Future is Clear
And with AviClear, it just keeps getting better.
AviClear is the first and only FDA-cleared device for the treatment of mild to severe acne.
To understand how AviClear works, it’s important to understand how breakouts happen. Acne forms when sebum, the oily substance on your skin, combines with dead skin cells and clogs your pores. Most acne treatments target other things that cause acne, but not the production of sebum. And that makes a big difference in your results. Those treatments won’t provide lasting improvement, and acne will return if you stop treatment or don’t use it every day.
AviClear is different
It is a laser treatment that specifically targets the source of the oily substance on your skin. After treatment, you will produce less oil and your acne will get better and stay better.
It’s time to see your skin in a whole new light
In clinical studies, 91% of patients responded
to treatment and 80% saw at least half of their acne clear.
And results may continue to improve with time — even several months after your treatment sessions are finished.
