Isolaz is an advanced laser produce used for several different applications, including the treatment of acne, to help patients achieve clear, smooth skin through a simple and painless procedure. Treatment with the Isolaz laser is FDA-approved for the treatment of acne and is an effective alternative to over-the-counter cleansers, antibiotics and Accutane for patients who have not found successful results or do not want to deal with the side effects of other treatments.

How does it work?

Isolaz laser treatment combines laser and vacuum technology for a unique, painless and effective procedure. The vacuum helps extract dirt, blackheads and oil from the pores, while the laser destroys acne-causing bacteria and evens out skin tone, producing clear skin that looks and feels healthier.

This is the first treatment proven to treat pustular and comedonal acne, as well as mild to moderate cases of other acne. While results cannot be 100% guaranteed, most patients notice significant improvements to their skin after treatment with Isolaz.

What happens during the Isolaz procedure?

*Your results may vary.

The Isolaz procedure is performed in the office and usually takes just 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the size and location of the area being treated. No anesthesia is needed for this procedure, and most patients report little to no pain. Most patients require four treatment sessions in order to achieve noticeable results.

What are the results of the procedure?

The results of the Isolaz procedure are visible within 24 to 48 hours, as patients may notice reduced redness and discoloration, and an immediate drying out of any blemishes. You can return to work and other regular activities immediately after treatment, as long as you feel comfortable enough to do so.

Most patients are satisfied with the results of the Isolaz procedure and notice significant improvement to the appearance of their acne and overall skin. You may also want to consider the other acne treatments offered at our practice.

The Isolaz treatment is safe for all skin types, and is not associated with any major risks. Dr. Welsh will decide if this treatment is right for you after performing a thorough evaluation of your condition.
