By providing patients with access to CareCredit’s medical financing, dermatology practices will be able to offer patients, or their parents, a convenient monthly payment option to help make out-of-pocket expenses more manageable.

“We are excited to join forces with Synchrony to provide our customers with this unique and valuable financing resource that will improve access to a prescription-free acne treatment option, one that is safe and comfortable with strong, long-term efficacy1,” said Steve Kreider, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, Cutera. “The ability to offer patient financing as part of our comprehensive support through the Avi360™ partnership program will enable more families to take advantage of the AviClear treatment - without worries of insurance coverage - to help improve their confidence and reduce the emotional toll of acne.”

Synchrony’s CareCredit credit card is a way for people to pay for treatments not covered by insurance, including elective procedures, copays, deductibles and coinsurance. Cardholders can choose from a variety of financing options. Patients can conveniently see if they prequalify for the CareCredit credit card with no impact to their credit bureau score at their doctor’s office, on their mobile device, or on their computer.

“Oftentimes, patients delay or decline recommended treatments because of cost concerns,” said Jill Behm, General Manager, Cosmetic, at Synchrony. “By partnering with Cutera and dermatology practices across the United States that offer treatment with AviClear, we hope to remove this concern by offering special financing options for patients to be able to move forward with needed care.”

AviClear is expected to be made available to physicians throughout the United States over the course of 2022. Doctors and consumers are encouraged to visit and sign up for updates on product availability.
