Almost everyone has experienced acne at some point in their life. Acne is not just a part of growing up, it is a condition that affects people of all ages, genders, and skin types. While acne may be common, an effective treatment can be hard to find. Keeping a clear complexion in the harsh and variable Alberta climate is especially hard.
That’s why we are pleased to offer Isolaz Acne Laser Treatment at Lucere Dermatology. Isolaz acne treatment provides a deep pore cleanse that treats acne, reduces pore size, and produces replenished, even-looking skin. If you suffer from acne and have tried everything, including medication and other laser treatments, the Lucere Isolaz treatment is the light at the end of the tunnel.
What is Isolaz treatment?
Isolaz is an incredible acne treatment which combines a deep cleansing vacuum suction with a healing laser. Isolaz produces radiant, clear skin that looks and feels purified from the inside out.
- Dead skin cells
- Excess oil
- Acne-causing bacteria
How does Isolaz work?
Isolaz combines vacuum suction and light therapy to painlessly clean, disinfect and heal current acne while also preventing future breakouts. The vacuum deeply cleans the pores by gently loosening and removing dead skin cells, dirt, blackheads and excess oil. At the same time, a painless laser destroys acne-causing bacteria, promoting faster healing of existing lesions. The laser also decreases, and sometimes eliminates, oil production, preventing future breakouts.
What are the causes of acne?
Different types of acne have different underlying causes, but they all result in hair follicles and pores becoming clogged with oil, dead skin cells, and debris. These clogged pores produce blackheads, whiteheads, and pimples. Acne usually appears on the face, back, and chest — all areas that produce more sebum.
Who is Isolaz good for?
Isolaz effectively treats all acne types. It is the only system approved to treat pustular and comedonal acne as well as mild to moderate acne vulgaris and hormonal or cystic acne. Any area on the body can be treated with the Isolaz, including back, chest, arms, and face.
Even if you don’t suffer from chronic acne, Isolaz can improve the appearance of your skin by reducing pore size, removing blackheads, and giving you a cleaner, more radiant complexion. Isolaz can be used to treat and prevent occasional breakouts, blackheads, pimples, and clogged pores.
What are the advantages of Isolaz compared to other laser acne treatments?
Isolaz is the only system that cleans and purifies your pores from deep inside. It is highly effective, and you’ll start to see results immediately after treatment.
Isolaz has proven effective on individuals who did not respond to traditional therapies, including topical treatments, antibiotics, and other laser treatments. Patients see immediate reduction in current acne, faster clearance of breakout-related redness, and a significant decrease in the number, frequency, and severity of breakouts. The long-term effects of Isolaz are because it not only cleanses the skin but reduces the amount of oil produced by the skin.
What can I expect during treatment?
Isolaz treatment is painless. In fact, patients have compared it to a warm massage! Medication or topical numbing is not required. The skin is just moistened with water and the Isolaz tip is applied to the skin. As the Isolaz tip is applied over the treatment area, you’ll feel a painless, warm sensation.
Treatment times vary depending on the treatment area, but usually take 45-60 minutes. After treatment there is no downtime. Unlike other laser treatments, your skin will not have increased photosensitivity as well.
When will I see results?
Most patients see immediate visible impact on their acne. The redness and severity of acne is visibly improved after the first treatment, and existing pimples are reduced within 24 to 48 hours after treatment. Isolaz patients can see up to 88% clearance of many types of acne. You may be impressed by initial results after just one treatment, but for full results, is important to follow your recommended treatment plan.
How many treatments will I need?
The exact number of treatment sessions you will need to achieve desired results depends on the area being treated and how your skin responds. At a consultation, a member of our expert team will be able to provide you with a treatment plan that is right for you.
How much does Isolaz cost?
