With all of the acne treatments available, why you should get Isolaz treatment can be confusing. Is the Isolaz treatment better than Photodynamic Therapy? Is the Isolaz better than a facial? It is important to understand how the Isolaz acne treatment works, in order to determine whether it is a good treatment for your acne. Dr. Schweiger explains that, “The Isolaz acne treatment is a very effective treatment that works by two simultaneous mechanisms. The treatment combines a gentle vacuum, to clean out the clogged pores, with an anti-bacterial broad-spectrum light to kill the acne causing p. acnes bacteria. When patients ask me if the Isolaz is better than a facial, I explain to them to added benefits of an anti-bacterial light and that the Isolaz treatment is far superior than a facial. However, for patients with very clogged pores and comedonal acne, we sometimes use a combination of medical facials and Isolaz treatments for the optimal treatment. Every patient is different, though nearly all acne patients benefit from treatment with the Isolaz.”
The Isolaz is a great treatment for all patients with acne, because it combines two different treatments in one. At the Clear Clinic, we often recommend combination treatments, in order to give you the best and most effective treatments based on the needs of your skin. The Isolaz, while it is excellent as a stand-alone acne treatment, is often combined in a series of treatments with Photodynamic Therapy and LED Light. For patients with comedonal acne, rather than inflammatory pimples, we often combine the Isolaz with medical facials and chemical peels.
