The American Academy of Dermatology* reports that acne vulgaris is the most common skin condition in the United States. Approximately 80% of all people between the ages of 11 and 30 suffer from acne with many continuing to have acne into their 40s and beyond.

Introducing the Acleara™ Acne Clearing System, the first continuously-cooled system FDA-cleared to treat mild to moderate inflammatory acne (Acne Vulgaris), comedonal acne, and pustular acne. The Acleara Acne Clearing System is powered by an advanced vacuum and filtered broadband light technology. A vacuum cleans pores by extracting build up of sebaceous material. Along with the targeted heating of sebaceous glands, the broadband light activates porphryns to destroy P. acnes and reduces sebum production through photodynamic action.

Acleara is manufactured by Theravant, Inc. and sold exclusively by Palomar.
