Prior to Treatment
Prior to treatment you will be scheduled for a complimentary consultation with a SKIN specialist who will review previous and current skin care, perform a detailed skin analysis, and discuss general health history before recommending a customized treatment program. As the number of treatments varies from patient to patient, a price quote will be given during consultation.
Isolaz® treatments are relatively quick, depending on the size of the areas being treated. A whole face generally requires 20-45 minutes. The treatment is painless so no pre-numbing topical gel is required. You will be provided with a pair of protective goggles to shield your eyes from the laser. Prior to treatment your skin will be hydrated with a soothing mist before the Isolaz® tip is applied. When the tip is placed on your skin, you will feel a gentle suction on the treatment area followed by a painless, warm sensation. The process is repeated over the entire treatment area. The “vacuum” portion of the treatment loosens and extracts dirt, blackheads and excess oil from deep within your pores. The laser energy then destroys acne-causing bacteria, while simultaneously treating uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and facial redness.
Isolaz® treatments are usually well tolerated by patients. Sometimes a slight redness is evident in the treated area, which dissipates quickly. There are no post-treatment regimens. Once your treatment is complete, you are free to resume your normal activities and you can apply make-up immediately. Many find their skin takes on a healthy glow and feels instantly cleaner.
Clinical studies show that within 24-48 hours, many patients experience reduced redness and immediate drying and flattening of their blemishes. While results vary from patient to patient, recent studies have also shown that approximately 85% of patients will experience clearer skin. Many people find that treatments are enough to cause a dramatic reduction in existing acne lesions and the prevention of new lesions. Sometimes, it is recommended to continue on with oral or topical prescriptions while undergoing treatments in order to maximize the result. It is not unusual to require several treatments to see a significant improvement in the skin. The exact number of treatments varies from patient to patient depending on the condition of their skin and the severity of their acne.
