Isolaz Acne Laser Treatment
If topical treatments, antibiotics, and laser treatments have failed to curb your acne, whether you are an adult or a teen, and no matter what your skin type or shade is, you should talk to your dermatologist at Dermatologic Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery about the possibility of using Isolaz to treat your stubborn acne.
What is Isolaz?
Isolaz is a three-part system. First, the doctor uses a vacuum-like machine to cleanse your pores. It takes out stubborn dirt, excess oil, and blackheads and leaves your skin cleaner than ever. Most patients report that it is not painful – you just feel a little sucking action on the part of your face that’s being treated.
The second step is to purify. Isolaz uses a broadband light to destroy acne-causing bacteria on and in your skin. This light also helps decrease redness caused by acne.
Finally, your dermatologist will prescribe certain topical treatments that work in combination with the first two steps. Many patients see results after only a single treatment. For others with more severe and stubborn cases of acne, more than one treatment may be required.
How many Isolaz treatments will I need?
The number of Isolaz treatments you will need depend on how serious your acne is and how much of your skin will be treated. For instance, if only parts of your face are affected with mild acne, you will need fewer treatments than someone who has moderately sever acne on their face and back. Generally, we find that most patients find the best benefit from four to six Isolaz treatments.
Where on the body can Isolaz be used?
Isolaz can be used just about anywhere! Do you have stubborn acne on your back or chest? Isolaz can help.
What is the downtime after an Isolaz treatment?
You might have a little redness immediately following treatment, but downtime after an Isolaz treatment is essentially zero.
