What is ADVATx®?

The most sophisticated laser of its kind to soften skin and even tone, the ADVATx® is appropriate for a range of common skin issues. These include irregularities like creases, folds, active acne (and associated scars), as well as visible capillaries, diffuse redness, big and noticeable pores, stretch marks, and hyperpigmentation (like “age spots”). In fact, it is cleared by the FDA for more than 25 applications. Due to the tremendous customizability of this system, ADVATx® is like several treatments in one. In fact, manufacturer Advalight distinguishes treatment into two categories: ADVA Bright and ADVAClear. The most appropriate treatment depends on factors such as the nature of your skin concern and its severity. Rest assured that any treatment performed with ADVATx® promotes the best possible results as well as the utmost safety and comfort.

What is ADVA Bright?

Advalight describes these treatments as combining a powerful yellow and infrared laser light. The energy derived from this light is then applied in a targeted manner to enhance skin tone, combat dry and leathery skin, and improve overall skin health and quality. It is most appropriate for conditions like the large brown patches of melasma and other pigment or color-related concerns, as well as wrinkles, oily skin, and pores. In fact, it can help to manage the over-production of oils made by the sebaceous glands.

How is ADVA Clear different from ADVA Bright?

Advalight characterizes ADVA Clear as a blend of pure yellow and high-powered infrared laser energy. It may be suitable for patients who have red patches and irritation associated with conditions like rosacea. It can also clear active acne, as well as scars and vascular irregularities not limited to telangiectasia or tiny, visible blood vessels and spider veins often related to unprotected exposure to the sun.

How does ADVATx® restore skin to such a healthy and youthful state?

Partly, the energy from this advanced system initiates healing processes. As wound healing is triggered in a controlled and safe manner, the ADVATx® renews the body’s supply of collagen. This fiber is essential for the skin’s firmness. In doing so, the ADVATx® and the collagen production that it triggers help to soften depressed areas and other irregularities that affect the surface appearance and texture of the skin – from scars to wrinkles and folds. Additionally, by combating oiliness, patients notice improvements in the severity and frequency of acne breakouts.

What can I expect from ADVATx® treatment

What can I expect from ADVATx® treatment?

If, following a consultation, we determine that ADVATx® is right for you, a lightening cream may be applied prior to treatment. This is only for patients with darker skin tones. It should be noted that treatment with this technology is perfectly safe for individuals with a diverse range of skin types. Each treatment session can be completed in just 30 minutes. The total number of treatments depends on factors specific to you, as well as how your skin responds to treatment. It is associated with little to no discomfort, though you may experience some treatment site irritation for a few hours post-treatment. We can advise on care afterward. Notably, and not unlike other aesthetic procedures, your skin may be more sensitive to the sun following treatment. So, practicing sun avoidance and protection with appropriate sunscreen is all the more important. Resist the temptation to pick at any flaking or peeling skin. Irritation can be soothed with creams. With some vascular conditions, patients notice immediate improvement. It may take more treatment sessions to get the desired improvement in acne and scars.

Skin rejuvenation.

What can I expect from my ADVATx treatment?

Does it hurt?

No, there is little to no discomfort.

How much down time?

You will experience mild redness.

What do I do after my tx?

Stay out of the sun for 24 hours and make sure to wear your sunscreen.

Will I see an immediate result?

Results vary among clients. Some see quick changes after 1 or 2 treatments, while others take more time. Vascular treatments usually need 1 to 3 sessions, while acne and scar treatments often require multiple sessions.

Can I get in the sun?

Again – wear your sunscreen and depending on what you’ve had treated, a minimum of 24 hours is recommended before direct sun exposure.


What’s the best type of ADVATx treatment for me?

We will help you decide which ADVATx treatment is best for your needs and goals during your initial consultation. What treatment is best for you will depend on the health of your skin, your skin concerns, and the skin depth you want your treatment to reach. How long you are willing to give your recovery might also be a deciding consideration when you create a treatment plan. When in doubt, it is best to try a milder treatment to see how you like your outcomes and adjust as needed for your second appointment.

How can I help my skin recover after an ADVATx treatment?

A team member will give you recommendations on ways to help your skin heal after an ADVATx laser treatment. The top rule is don’t pick or peel flaking skin. This could create lasting damage like scars. You need to forgo all hair removal methods on the treated skin, which include waxing, shaving, or depilatory creams. We will recommend a cream to help soothe treated areas.

Should I get an ADVATx laser treatment, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion?

Once we have listened to your skin concerns, we will help you decide if an ADVATx laser treatment, dermabrasion, or a chemical will achieve your goals. While all three rejuvenate the surface of the skin, each has its own benefits and drawbacks. In your initial consultation, we can review each choice and make a recommendation for your treatment.

How often should I get ADVATx laser treatments?

Depending on the ADVATx laser treatment type you and your team member choose for your procedure, you might need to wait 3-4 weeks between appointments. You should tell us how frequently you are willing to return for appointments so we can consider this when suggesting a treatment plan in your initial consultation.
