    • Vacuum extraction cleanses pores by evacuating sebum and dislodging follicular ostia
    • Heat shocks the sebaceous gland and injures bacteria
    • Broadband light helps destroy P. acnes bacteria
  • Easily integrated as a primary or complementary acne treatment, to fight the root causes of acne in a non-systemic way.
  • Immediate results reduced redness, clearing of skin discoloration, and flattening of blemishes within 24-48 hours.1
  • Significant decrease in breakouts including reduction in the number and severity of breakouts and associated amount of oil production.2
  • 75% reduction in lesions within 2 months for non-responders to oral medications, topical medications and lasers.3
  • Ancillary benefits include reductionin pore size, improvement in skin texture and tone.2

Commentary:

"Isolaz has been a real game-changer for teens with acne. Many of these kids simply want their acne to go away over-night, and become impatient and frustrated with traditional acne therapies. A series of 2 to 3 Isolaz treatments can do wonders for teen inflammatory and comedonal acne, with significant improvement in as little as 2 weeks. I have even treated both of my teenage children with Isolaz, and thankfully the treatments did wonders for their acne."
