Seattle Skin Care Specialist Dr. Jodie Reinertson on how to treat acne in preparation for holiday parties and the new year.
Seattle, WA – Dr. Jodie Reinertson, a practitioner of skin care in Seattle, wants to make sure patients are informed about acne treatment trends for the upcoming holiday season. CosMedic Skincare, Dr. Reinertson’s practice, offers patients a wide variety of treatments from chemical peels and Microdermabrasion, to deep pore cleansing and resurfacing for acne scars. Additionally, Dr. Reinertson delivers individualized care for acne and other skin ailments, providing an alternative to over-the-counter products and prescription treatments.
While many teens and their parents know about widely advertised oral and topical medications, Dr. Reinertson and CosMedic Skincare give patients another option. Isolaz Therapy for acne is an FDA-approved technique that utilizes a combination of broadband light and suction through a system called Photopneumatic Technology. The treatment system offers deep pore purification to clean pores from the inside out.
During Isolaz Therapy, a handheld device is placed on the surface of the troubled skin. The device contains a small vacuum that gently lifts acne-causing impurities to the surface of the skin, including these common patient concerns:
- Dead skin cells
- Excess oil from deep within the pores
During the next stage of the therapy, a broadband light both destroys acne-causing bacteria and sloughs oils and dead cells away from the skin. After the acne treatment, the skin is left healthier, clearer, and cleaner.
Isolaz Therapy is best used to treat mild or moderate acne. Pustular acne (pimples), comedonal acne (non-inflammatory acne), and mild acne vulgaris (inflammatory acne) can all be targeted by the treatment, and the treatment is suitable for all skin types. The Seattle skin care specialist also believes that Isolaz Therapy is a popular alternative to traditional treatments since the process takes a natural approach and does not involve medication or prescription drugs. In addition, she adds that a majority of patients who have not had success with traditional treatments show a reduction of acne after Isolaz Therapy.
In regards to results surfacing, Dr. Reinertson says patients typically begin to see improvements in their acne between two to six weeks depending on the individual and the severity of the acne. She adds that she believes the holiday season is the perfect time of year to begin treatment, as sun exposure is generally not an issue during the late fall to winter months.
