TheraClear™, previously known as Acleara™, is a breakthrough acne treatment that combines a gentle vacuum with pulses of laser energy to improve the appearance of skin. This FDA- approved acne treatment technology is safe to use on all skin types.

How does TheraClear™ work?

  • Position: The hand piece device is placed directly on the treatment area.
  • Cleanse: TheraClear™ uses vacuum technology to safely and comfortably remove acne-causing bacteria and thoroughly cleanse the skin.
  • Treat: Therapeutic light from the hand piece destroys bacteria.
  • Complete: TheraClear™ treatment is completed when the pores are cleansed.

The TheraClear™ system combines two different methods for effectively treating acne. First, vacuum therapy is applied to the skin to unclog pores and rid the skin of blackheads. Next, a light is used to eradicate the bacteria associated with acne production.

In general, acne can be treated if two basic conditions are addressed:

  • First, it’s important to stop the oil glands from becoming plugged. TheraClear™ accomplishes this by using a vacuum to clean pores and extract the buildup of sebaceous material.
  • Next, it’s crucial to reduce the bacteria that resides in the glands, which can ultimately lead to inflammation. A broadband light (BBL™) is used to destroy acne-causing bacteria and decrease oil production.

Who is a good candidate for TheraClear™?

Nearly everyone who suffers from acne can make a good candidate for TheraClear™ acne treatment. Since TheraClear™ is gentle on the skin, it can even be used by teenagers. During your consultation, you and your provider will discuss your need for TheraClear™, examine before and after pictures, and ultimately determine if this treatment option is right for you.

A message from Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ:

Dear Patients,

Our providers and staff recognize that we are all faced with difficult times as this pandemic continues to unfold throughout our area. However, the continuation of your care remains our top priority!

At this time, our New York City office is temporarily closed.

In our effort to provide you with the highest level of service, the Hackensack and Hillsborough NJ offices will remain open until further notice with limited hours of availability. We ask for your understanding with our protocols on hand washing and social distancing when you arrive for your appointment. Please do not come to the office if you are experiencing a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Should you prefer not to visit the office in person, our providers are now offering virtual office visits. This is commonly known as telemedicine, or in this case, teledermatology. Our dedicated concierge team will assist you in scheduling a virtual appointment with your provider, including those in the New York City office.

Currently, the government mandates that the only way to have these virtual visits is to communicate via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or WhatsApp video. This is because your medical providers needs to see you, and you can show the provider the problem area of your body that you are concerned about. You will also be able to discuss any other issues regarding your ongoing care or for any new skin concerns you may have. Your provider may tell you that an in-person visit may be required for testing or more in-depth examination. In that case, a concierge team member will reach out to schedule an in-office visit.

To schedule your in-person or virtual appointment, please call our office at 908-359-8980 or email [email protected] Our concierge team members will schedule a time for your medical provider to call you back. We have set aside times for all of our medical providers to call you for your virtual appointment.

Please be aware that virtual visits must be billed to your medical health insurance just as they would for an in-person office visit. If your insurance has recently changed, please have that information ready to provide to our team members. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have financial obligations such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance just as you would for an in-office visit (at the present time, the government has only waived co-pays related to COVID-19 testing).

We understand that this is a stressful time, but we are here for you!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ
