Isolaz™ Acne Light Therapy is a unique acne treatment that combines a vacuum and painless broadband light (IPL) to deep cleanse and purify the pores from the inside out. It is the only acne treatment FDA approved to treat pustular and comedonal acne. The Isolaz uses a breakthrough technology called Photopneumatics (light + vacuum) to painlessly extract the pores and kill bacteria. This is a breakthrough technology because it is the first and only system that purifies the pore from the inside out and destroys acne causing bacteria. There is no downtime and you can return to normal activities immediately. Best results are seen when the Isolaz™ is paired with a Chemical Peel and a consistent and proper home care routine with the Face Reality skin care system. The Natural Skincare Clinic owner & Medical Esthetician, Jessica Gremley, has been using the Isolaz™ to treat mild to moderate acne for nine years and has experienced an 85% success rate with the ideal candidates. Depending on the severity of the acne, a series of 6-10 treatments are recommended. Treatments take approximately 30-minutes for a full face and are spaced 1-2 weeks apart. One can expect a 40-80% improvement in active breakouts and red discoloration (aka post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation) as well as a significant reduction in the number of future breakouts.
In comparison to topical treatments, the Isolaz not only treats the current acne, it also prevents future breakouts because it penetrates deeply into the pore. This light therapy permeates deep below the skin’s surface for the treatment of existing acne. In addition, it acts as a form of preventative care that will keep your skin smooth and clear for months to come. Should you choose to stay on your prescribed topical creams and oral antibiotics, you may so while having the Isolaz acne therapy.
The actual Isolaz acne therapy treatment has three main steps: placement, activation and treatment. First, we will examine your skin and identify the areas where the Isolaz is needed. The instrument that administers the broadband light and vacuum is a handheld device that looks somewhat like a very small shower head. Once the number of treatments has been determined, we will begin to place the Isolaz treatment tip over the affected areas of the skin. A superficial chemical peel is typically recommended to treat the skin with prior to beginning the treatment in order to most effectively extract the pores. Next, the Isolaz vacuum will gently begin suctioning the pores and loosen trapped dirt and dead skin cells from your pores. Lastly, immediately after the vacuum, the Isolaz tip will administer a flash of broadband light to kill of the remaining p. acne bacteria in your skin and stimulate your skin cells to encourage healthy growth and rejuvenation. The skin will be cleansed once again and SPF applied. You can go about your normal routine with no downtime.
