Isolaz Acne Therapy & Pore Purification
Clearing Pores (and Preventing Acne) from the Inside Out
Isolaz, a new laser based acne treatment from Solta (makers of Fraxel and Thermage), gives excellent results in clearing up acne and leaving skin clearer, cleaner and with impeccably clean pores. The treatment is performed in our office with no need for needles or excisions or numbing.
Either as an alternative or adjunctive therapy, Isolaz broadband acne laser offers a treatment process unlike any other available.
How does Isolaz work?
Isolaz combines two important treatment processes:
Total Dermatology Patients Treatment
Isolaz has few side effects other than some minimal redness and some initial possible increased acne surfacing due to the process. These new acne lesions - which would normally lie beneath the surface waiting to appear - are then more quickly resolved.
How fast does Isolaz work?
You will see visible results almost immediately, even though desired long term results usually require four or five treatment sessions. Sessions are fast, easy, and pain free for most mild to moderate acne patients.
Is Isolaz effective for all acne levels?
High inflammation levels or cystic acne may require prescriptive medications. Dr. Pilest will assess your acne condition and advise if you are a good candidate for Isolaz.
Once an Isolaz treatment is finished, you will be guided in the proper care of your skin, paying particular attention to avoid pore clogging makeup or creams and using correct cleansing products and maintenance skin care.
How does Isolaz stop future acne?
Pimples, acne, and skin blemishes are caused by bacteria which exists in hair follicles or pores. Bacteria naturally spreads and can make its way up to the skin’s surface in the form of acne or a blemish when it's been given a breeding ground to grow out of control. This is the case when pores become clogged and the bacteria buildup causing an inflammatory reaction (aka pimple!).
By first removing the clog, then attacking the bacteria deep in the skin, Isolaz delivers a one-two punch which makes it ideal for removing and killing existing inflammatory bacteria.
With a pathway clear for oils to be released as intended, bacteria no longer has that breeding ground and skin can function more normally and become much clearer.
Do I need to do anything to prepare for the treatment?
If possible, come to your appointment without makeup. When undergoing an Isolaz laser skin treatment, your skin will be cleansed and prepared; a quick view of your skin will determine the right setting for an Isolaz tip based on the amount of melanin in your skin and the location of the blemishes or acne.
What kind of results can I expect?
Clinical studies show that up to 88% of patients who tried Isolaz have enjoyed a reduction of acne or other blemishes. The effects of Isolaz can last up to a year after a completed series. Unlike other laser treatments, the FDA has specifically approved Isolaz as a remedy for comedonal and pustular acne so you can feel secure that the treatment is safe.
