What is Isolaz Therapy?
Isolaz Therapy is an FDA-approved system for the effective treatment of acne. It utilizes a unique combination of broadband light and suction, through a system called Photopneumatic Technology, which offers deep pore purification to clean pores from the inside out. It is ideally suited to treat mild to moderate acne, including pustular acne (pimples), comedonal acne (non-inflamatory acne) and mild acne vulgaris (inflammatory acne) on all skin types.
How does Isolaz Therapy work?
The pneumatic mechanism of action helps to clear out pores by removing dead skin cells, black heads and other debris that may contribute to acne breakouts, while the broadband light kills surface bacteria and heats the sebaceous gland (responsible for oil production). The visual display below shows the specific actions of the Photopneumatic Technology.
What are the benefits of Isolaz?
There is an immediate impact on active lesions from Isolaz Therapy. Patients will experience drying and flattening of active lesions typically within 24-48 hours. Clinical studies have shown an 88% clearance rate of pustular, nodular, popular as well as inflammatory acne. Studies have also shown that patients who have not had success with oral and topical medications had a 75% reduction in acne lesions within two months of beginning Isolaz Therapy.
Who is a candidate for Isolaz?
Isolaz Therapy is a viable acne treatment that speaks to a large audience of acne sufferers including men, women and teens. If you have just begun researching a solution to your acne, this is a great alternative to traditional treatments since it does not involve the use of medications or prescription drugs; for this reason, Isolaz Therapy is extremely popular with patients who prefer to take a natural approach. Most importantly, this treatment speaks to patients who have tried everything else; studies have shown that patients who did not respond to oral or topical medications have seen a 75% reduction in their acne after receiving Isolaz Therapy.
What areas can be treated?
Isolaz is just as effective at removing acne lesions on the face as it is on the neck, chest, shoulders and back.
What is a typical procedure like?
During the procedure you will be treated with the utmost care and comfort. The Photopneumatic Technology is delivered via a hand piece that will be applied to your skin. The tip of the hand piece will be moved across the treatment areas. You will see a flash of light and feel suction as the treatment destroys bacteria and cleans the pores of debris; beginning to renew your skin’s health. Water will be used on your skin during treatment for increased comfort and safety. Typical treatments can run from 30 minutes to 1 hour based on the area being treated.
Is the treatment painful?
Experiences will vary from patient to patient. For most patients the suction portion of the treatment is easily tolerable. Patients suffering from larger and more volume of white heads will be more sensitive to the treatment as whiteheads tend to be sensitive by nature. During your treatment, you will be asked for feedback on the comfort level. Most patients report this treatment as a relatively pain-free treatment. After your treatment, you will feel a renewed tightness to your skin and a healthy radiant glow.
What are the common side effects?
Isolaz treatments are relaxing and do not include side effects such as crusting or other common post-treatment discomforts. With Isolaz therapy, you can go right back to your normal activities.
How long before I notice results?
You will notice drying and flattening of acne lesions 24-48 hours post treatment and will continue to see gradual results with continued treatments. The Isolaz treatments are clearing the pores of debris and bacteria, and in doing so initial breakouts may occur in the beginning stages of treatment. Patients that see the best and most consistent results receive regular Isolaz Treatments. Once the acne is aggressively treated with a combination of services under our Acne Treatment Program, the occasional touch-up appointments will keep acne at bay.
Where can I get more information about Isolaz Therapy?
We encourage anyone seeking treatment for acne to schedule a consultation with Dr. Reinertson. Acne consultations are complimentary and a great way to build a plan of action for treating your acne concerns. Acne is unique to each individual; we can build a plan unique to your condition and help you receive the relief you have been looking for. If you would like more general information on Isolaz Therapy, please visit the Isolaz website.
What does treatment cost?
Isolaz is available as individual treatments but is more effective when grouped with other beneficial acne treatment services as part of an Acne Treatment Package. By purchasing an Acne Treatment Package at CosMedic Skincare, your cost per treatment drops considerably and will allow you to receive the greatest overall results from combination therapy.
