Dealing with acne is something that can be very difficult. In addition to lowering a person’s own self-esteem, it can lead to ridicule, embarrassment and bullying. When a person has severe acne when they are young, they may deal with acne scars for the rest of their life. There are many reasons why it is a good idea to get your acne under control. Also, there are a variety of treatment options that are available to help you do this. One option is Isolaz®.

Isolaz® is a safe treatment that can be used to help individuals who are dealing with acne. It has been used effectively since 1995. The idea behind this treatment is to purify the pores and attack all of the bacteria that causes acne right at its source before it has the opportunity to spread, become inflamed and cause all of the typical acne symptoms.

This is a unique product. It basically combines a broadband light that delivers acne treatments with a vacuum that loosens and then sucks away excess oil, dirt and blackheads from the skin. This allows the pores to stay clean. When the broadband light is used on the skin, the bacteria that causes acne is destroyed. This is also effective at reducing redness that a person who has acne will have on their face.

When individuals come into our office for treatment, they can expect to spend at least 15 to 20 minutes with us if only their face is being treated. If they are going to have treatments done on other parts of their body, like on their chest or back, they can expect the treatment to take longer. Before we begin treatment, we will ask you to wash your face.

You should expect to come into our office for at least two treatments. However, the amount of treatments that you need will depend on the severity of your acne and the direction that is given by our physicians. You will notice that your acne already looks better after the first treatment.

However, as you stick with the plan that is given to you for treatment, you will begin to see the effects of Isolaz® over the first couple of days and into the next weeks. Some individuals benefit from taking a prescription treatment in addition to using this product in order to have the best results.

You do not have to worry about taking any time to recover from Isolaz® treatment. You can go right back to school, work or other activities. However, we will give you direction on how to take care of your skin.
