The Laser & Rejuvenation Center


Acne-prone skin is difficult to live with and treat. It affects not just your appearance but your confidence in everyday life and your self-esteem. The good news is that there is a treatment that can eradicate acne and heal your skin, and we offer it here at Gold Skin Care Center in Nashville, TN. TheraClear®X is a unique anti-acne treatment that targets blemishes and breakouts with different modes of technology to promote healthier and clearer skin.

What Is TheraClear®X?

TheraClear®X is an anti-acne treatment that uses vacuum technology and broadband light to treat mild to moderate forms of acne. Those suffering from minor blemishes to more noticeable and widespread acne can schedule treatments with this system to achieve clearer skin.

The treatment can target and treat all different forms of acne, including pustular acne, inflammatory acne, acne vulgaris, and comedonal acne. We can use it to address multiple areas that have acne, including the face, chest, and back. You can also target multiple areas within the same treatment plan.

The Treatment Benefits

There are many products and medications that promise to treat acne, but many of them lead to other adverse side effects and can affect the health of your skin as well as your overall health. TheraClear®X is an effective option for patients suffering from acne because it’s safe and painless, and patients can resume all of their normal daily activities immediately following treatment. Other treatment benefits include the following:

  • The treatment is versatile and can target different face and body areas
  • It’s a comfortable, pain-free treatment that doesn’t require numbing cream
  • You won’t have to plan around downtime
  • It effectively targets and treats various types of acne
  • It removes buildup directly from the pores with unique vacuum technology

How It Works

This treatment uses two forms of effective technology to target and eliminate acne. The vacuum technology in the device works to manually suction dirt, debris, and buildup directly from the pores. After unclogging the pores, we then use broadband light technology, which is applied directly to the skin to destroy the acne-causing bacteria within the pores that contribute to breakouts while also reducing oil production.

Broadband light also can help calm the skin and reduce redness and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation that often affects those who suffer from different forms of acne. Madeleine Fox, a laser specialist, performs this treatment at Gold Skin Care Center. When you schedule your treatment here, you can rest assured that we will customize the treatment based on your exact skin concerns and help you achieve healthier and clearer skin.

What Causes Acne?

Many different factors contribute to the formation of acne. For some, acne is hormonal; for others, it’s stress-related. Environment, diet, lifestyle choices, and other factors also play a part in causing excess sebum production that leads to acne.

Regardless, it’s important that you take steps to achieve healthier skin by targeting acne at the source, which is exactly what this treatment can do. By manually removing debris, excess oil, and buildup from the pores and then destroying the bacteria with broadband light, the treatment greatly reduces sebum production and clears the skin.

What Kind of Treatment Plan Will I Need?

Most patients benefit from a series of treatments, typically four to five, scheduled weekly or biweekly as needed. We can determine the best treatment plan for your needs at your initial consultation when we evaluate your skin in person.

When Will I See the Results?

The best results are most visible by the second treatment. You may not see any dramatic changes in your skin after just one treatment, but you can rest assured that your skin will respond to the vacuum technology and broadband light, and after your second treatment, you will see a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your skin.

Results will continue to improve after each treatment you schedule, and the best results will be most visible upon the completion of your treatment plan.

Enhancing Your Treatment Results

There are ways that you can promote healthier skin as you schedule and complete your recommended number of treatments in your treatment plan. Using the right skin care products and undergoing other skin-perfecting treatments can help promote optimal skin health and target acne in different ways.

We can give you more details about the best treatment options to use in conjunction with TheraClear®X, as well as which products to add to your morning and evening skincare regimen to maintain skin health.

Who Is It Right For?

An initial consultation at our office will allow us to evaluate your skin and the particular type of acne affecting you so that we can move forward with your unique treatment plan to help you achieve healthier and clearer skin.
