Cutera’s AviClearTM 12-Month Clinical Data Presented at the 42nd Annual Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference

BRISBANE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cutera, Inc. (Nasdaq: CUTR) ("Cutera" or the "Company"), a leading provider of aesthetic and dermatology solutions, today announced that the 12-month clinical data related to AviClear, the first and only FDA-cleared energy-based device for the treatment of mild, moderate, and severe acne, was presented at the Annual Fall Clinical Dermatology Conference, which took place October 20-23 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Current clinical studies show that after three 30-minute treatment sessions, 90% of patients had a visible improvement in their acne at 6 months.1 New 12-month clinical findings show this improvement increases to 92%,2 confirming the continual improvement of acne clearance and skin quality over time. Studies also demonstrate that three-fourths of patients showed a 2+ IGA score improvement and two-thirds of patients were assessed as clear or almost-clear 12 months after their final treatment session.3

Newly published articles in the Lasers in Medical Science and the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology exemplify the proven safety and efficacy of AviClear’s method of action and the validation of Cutera’s research methods for the clinical data assessments.
