Therative Granted Patent for Proprietary Technology in Thermaclear Acne Clearing Device

Tuesday, March 03, 2009

San Francisco, CA -- Therative, Inc., a pioneer in developing advanced skin care products and solutions for consumers, announces that the proprietary technology in its ThermaClear Acne Clearing Device is now patent-protected under the new patent No. 7,494,492.

The FDA-cleared, clinically proven ThermaClear Acne Clearing Device delivers a controlled, 2-second pulse of targeted heat directly to individual pimples, attacking acne at its source. The advanced Thermal Pulse Technology delivers a pulse of heat to instantly penetrate the skin to neutralize the underlying bacteria that causes breakouts. ThermaClear-treated pimples clear four times faster than those not treated with the device, with results visible in as little as 24 hours.

"The patent confirms the uniqueness of ThermaClear's heat-enabled Thermal Pulse Technology for treating acne," said Sandra Lawrence, President and CEO, Therative. "Consumers benefit from the speed and effectiveness of the technology. It's no wonder tens of thousands of consumers have incorporated ThermaClear into their acne skin care regimen."

ThermaClear is similar to laser technology used by professionals to treat mild to moderate inflammatory acne, but designed for use at home for a fraction of the cost. Using only heat, ThermaClear does not cause the drying, irritation or skin hyper pigmentation often associated with chemicals in many topical acne products. In addition, it is safe on all skin types and tones. ThermaClear's portable design allows convenient use anytime, anywhere and even over makeup. ThermaClear treats all mild to moderate inflammatory acne, even hormonal and stress-induced blemishes, both above and below the skin's surface.
