ACNE - Isolaz®

Acne pimples, cysts, blackheads and whiteheads can ravage a young person's skin and destroy self-esteem. The best time to begin acne treatment is as soon as it becomes evident. Acne may progressively worsen if untreated. Prevention and control is preferred - before acne has had a chance to take over and cause scarring and psychological damage.

Which types of acne does the lsolaz laser treat?

The lsolaz is the only system the FDA has cleared to treat pustular and comedonal acne as well as mild to moderate acne vulgaris.

Will I still need to use topicals or other medication?

Depending on your own situation, you may be asked to continue to use topicals and/or oral antibiotics while undergoing lsolaz treatment. Combination therapies typically yield better results.

Does the lsolaz work 100% of the time?

Everyone's skin is different, but studies have shown that 85% of people who have done the lsolaz series of treatments will see improvement.

What if I only get a breakout every once in a while - could I still have an Isolaz treatment?

Of course! Because the Isolaz utilizes vacuum technology, it can help keep your pores cleansed and purified for healthy, radiant skin.

How many treatments will I need?

Four to six treatments are generally needed to achieve excellent results. However, the exact number of treatments varies from patient to patient. Monthly maintenance treatments may be required.

What are the side effects of Isolaz?

Slight discomfort during treatment, redness that typically subsides within 24 hours and possible minor bruising due to the vacuum technology may occur.
