If you’re ready to change the look and feel of your skin with a revolutionary new acne treatment, it’s time to pay a visit to the professional team at SpaDerma.
At SpaDerma, we’re proud to make use of Isolaz® Light Therapy, a revolutionary new technique for treating problem skin and persistent blemishes. Isolaz is the world’s only aesthetic technology that combines a powerful vacuum with a broadband light, leaving your skin clean, refreshed and free of the bacteria that can cause many chronic skin problems. Most patients require six sessions of Isolaz to see the maximum results, although some may need as few as three treatments. The treatment is quick, painless and can even be done over a patient’s lunch hour.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What types of acne does Isolaz treat?
A: Isolaz is cleared by the FDA and is indicated for the treatment of mild to moderate acne, including pustular acne, comedonal acne and mild to moderate inflammatory acne (acne vulgaris) in all skin types.
Q: Does Isolaz treatment hurt?
A: In a published clinical study, 100% of patients noted Isolaz treatments were painless.¹ You may feel a small amount of pressure from the vacuum or a warm sensation during treatment, but you should not feel discomfort or pain.
Q: I have acne on my back and chest; can Isolaz help?
A: Yes, Isolaz treatment is effective on body acne (back and chest) as well as facial acne.
Q: How long is an Isolaz treatment?
A: It depends on the area of the body being treated, but treatments on the face may take as little 20 minutes. Body treatments may take a little longer.
Q: Will I have sensitivity to light following my Isolaz treatment?
A: No. Unlike other treatments, Isolaz does not cause sensitivity to light.
Q: Is there downtime associated with the Isolaz treatment?
A: There may be mild redness that typically lasts less than an hour. You can go right back to your normal activities immediately post treatment.
Q: I’ve heard of Isolaz 2*. Is that a different treatment?
A: Isolaz 2 is the name of the latest system that delivers the Isolaz acne therapy. This new system offers your treatment provider some enhanced system features, while delivering the same great results as the previous Isolaz system.
Q: Will I respond to Isolaz if I have not responded to other treatments?
A: While everyone is different, many patients who have not responded to other acne treatments have responded to Isolaz treatments.¹ Talk to your Isolaz provider about any medications you have tried or are currently taking.
Q: Am I a candidate for Isolaz treatment?
A: Anyone who has mild to moderate acne may be a candidate. Acne doesn’t discriminate, so whether you are male or female, a teen or way past adolescence, Isolaz may be right for you.
Q: Will I still need to use topical creams or other medication?
A: Ask your Isolaz treatment provider – depending on your own situation you may be instructed to continue to use other acne therapies while undergoing Isolaz treatments. Light Chemical peels are recommended either in between treatments or directly before your Isolaz treatment.
Q: Does Isolaz work 100% of the time?
A: No acne treatment can claim to work 100% of the time, but many patients who have not responded to other acne treatments, such as antibiotics, topical creams or even lasers have responded to Isolaz treatments. 1 That’s because Isolaz treats multiple root causes of acne, like clogged hair follicles, reducing oil production and reducing the bacteria responsible for acne flare ups. In fact, studies have shown that patients who had Isolaz treatments achieved 90% acne clearance. 2
Q: What if I only get a breakout every once in a while – could I still have an Isolaz treatment?
A: Of course! Because Isolaz uses vacuum for deep pore cleansing, you’ll leave with healthy, radiant looking skin.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: Three to six treatments are generally needed to get initial results. However, the exact number of treatments varies from patient to patient. It is recommended that you come in once a week for your treatment. Your Isolaz treatment provider will talk with you about a specific treatment plan for you.
Q: Will Isolaz also reduce the redness associated with my acne breakouts?
A; Many patients see the additional benefit of reduced redness after an Isolaz treatment.
