Acne and acne scar expert, Dr. Eric Schweiger, explains that, "Isolaz therapy is one of the most effective treatments that we can offer our patients for the treatment of acne. Isolaz therapy fights acne in two different ways: a gentle vacuum cleans oil and debris from the pores, while holding the pores open for a simultaneous treatment with a broad-spectrum light to kill the acne-causing bacteria. Treatment of the entire face with these mechanisms takes only about fifteen minutes, and the results are incredible."
There is no downtime after treatment with Isolaz therapy. Some patients experience mild redness from the gentle vacuum, but this usually resolves within an hour. The treatments themselves are not painful, most of our Clear Clinic patients describe them as a gentle pinching sensation. Some results can be seen immediately; pore cleansing can be appreciated in the form of smoother, softer skin in the moments following the treatment. In the days following Isolaz therapy, most patients notice that their active acne is beginning to go away more quickly than usual. After a series of Isolaz treatments, not only does active acne resolve, but new acne lesions are prevented. Additionally, the broad-spectrum light that is used to kill acne-causing bacteria also helps to decrease discoloration on the skin left behind from old acne lesions.
The Isolaz treatment is sometimes used as stand-alone therapy, but is most often recommended as part of the Clear Club programs. Clear Club programs offer a comprehensive acne treatment, including office visits with acne experts and in-office physical treatments such as Isolaz therapy.
