The Difference Between Isolaz Therapy and Blue Light Therapy

The Difference Between Isolaz Therapy and Blue Light Therapy

Posted in Laser Acne Treatments by . | Leave a Comment
There are so many laser treatments available for the treatment of acne scarring, it is helpful to visit an acne expert to help you sort through them all.  Your dermatologist can help you to determine which laser treatment for acne is best for your skin type.  Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Isolaz therapy and Blue light therapy each use different technology, in order to control acne and prevent future acne.  Both treatments have an antibacterial light that is used to kill the acne-causing p. acnes bacteria, but the treatments are performed in different ways.  Most patients benefit greatly from a combination of the two laser acne treatments." Isolaz therapy utilizes a gentle vacuum to clean oil and debris from the pores, while a broad-spectrum light kills the bacteria inside the pores.  The treatments take approximately fifteen minutes and there is no downtime after the visit.  The Isolaz treatment not only reduces active acne on the skin, but prevents future acne lesions from forming. Blue light therapy utilizes a blue LED light, which kills the acne-causing p. acnes bacteria on the skin.  The treatment takes between fifteen and thirty minutes and there is no downtime after the blue light visit.  Similar to the Isolaz treatment, blue light therapy helps to reduce active acne and prevent future acne from forming on the skin. At Clear Clinic, we often recommend a series of in-office physical acne treatments, in order to obtain the best results for our patients.  A combination of Isolaz therapy and blue light therapy (often in the form of Photodynamic Therapy, which combines blue light with a topical light-sensitizing medication applied to the skin) is one of the most effective anti-acne regimens for many of our patients.
