Isolaz® Acne Removal Laser
The board-certified dermatologists at Dermatology Affiliates, located in Atlanta and Marietta, GA, use the Isolaz® Acne Laser to treat patients in Midtown and East Cobb suffering from severe acne and other chronic skin conditions so that they can have a smoother, more rejuvenated appearance.
What is the Isolaz® Acne Laser?
The Isolaz® Acne Laser is the only FDA-approved system that treats acne by cleansing pores, purifying the skin from the inside out and restoring the skin’s original glow without causing more problems. Regardless of your age or the condition of your skin, the Isolaz® Acne treatments have revolutionized the dermatological industry’s ability to cleanse and purify your skin.
What Types of Acne Does the Isolaz® Treat?
The Isolaz® is engineered to treat any type of acne and clogged pores. It is great for blackheads and pimples. It can also help with hormonal-based acne or cystic acne. Or perhaps you are plagued by little bumps that reside just under the skin’s surface, the ones that neither go away nor actually turn into surface pimples. The Isolaz® can assist with all of these issues. Additionally, it can be applied to any area of the body, e.g. chest, arms, back, or any other problematic spots.
How Does the Isolaz® Work?
With the Isolaz® Acne laser, a vacuum-like suction pulls the skin to remove dirt, grime, and debris from the pores while a flash of light from the laser kills bacteria leaving pores clean and void of anything to cause acne. Additionally, active acne eruptions are treated during the treatment. Isolaz treatments require no anesthetic cream or any other intervention to prevent minimal discomfort. Patients return to their normal activities immediately following each treatment.
How Long Does an Isolaz® Treatment Take?
Treatment duration varies with most treatments taking between 45 minutes to an hour. It is best to plan on at least one hour in order to have sufficient time to prepare, check in, cleanse your face, and possibly take before treatment photos.
Who Can Be Treated for Acne with Isolaz®?
The Isolaz® Acne Laser is effective on all skin types and all skin colors. The treatments are also effective for most acne problems whether severe or an occasional breakout. It is important to note that patients taking Accutane® are not candidates for Isolaz® and must wait at least six months following the last dose to be treated.
How Many Isolaz® Acne Treatments Will Be Needed?
The number of treatments required depends on several factors including the skin type, the severity of acne, and other conditions. During a consultation, one of our dermatologists can discuss the details of the treatment plan.
When Will I Start to See Results?
Most patients see an immediate visible improvement following the first treatment. It is necessary to adhere to the at-home treatment plan you receive in order to optimize the effectiveness of the Isolaz® treatment. You may experience mild redness in the treated area; however, this goes away within a few hours or a day and can be concealed with makeup if necessary.
Do Isolaz® Treatments Hurt?
A clinical study indicated that 100% of patients reported no pain during the treatment.
How Much Do Isolaz® Treatments Cost?
The cost of Isolaz® treatments vary with each patient and depend on the extent of the acne problem. During a consultation with one of our dermatologists, we can discuss the cost. Typically treatments with the Isolaz® laser are not covered by insurance.
