ISOLAZ Photo Pneumatics Therapy
Acne and general questions

Am I a candidate for Isolaz™ Acne Therapy?
Any person who has acne may be a candidate. 

What Types of Acne Does the Isolaz™ Treat?
The Isolaz™ is the only system FDA cleared to treat pustular and comedonal acne as well as mild to moderate and acne vulgaris.

Will I still need to use topicals or other medication?
Ask your Isolaz™ treatment provider – depending on your own situation you may be asked to continue to use topicals while undergoing Isolaz™ treatments.

What if I only get a breakout every once in a while – could I still have an Isolaz™ Treatment?
Of course!  Because the Isolaz™ uses vacuum, it can help keep your pores cleansed and purified for healthy, radiant looking skin.  Also spot treatments on specific
breakout areas are available.

How many treatments will I need?
Four treatments are generally needed to get excellent results.  However, the exact number of treatments varies from patient to patient.

Is the Isolaz™ treatment really painless?
Yes. In a published clinical study, an astounding 100% of patients noted Aesthera Photopneumatic™ treatments were painless. [Reference: Novel Photopneumatic Therapy Delivers High-Efficiency Photons to Dermal Targets, Vic Narurkar, MD. Vol 18, No. 2, February 2005, Cosmetic Dermatology].

Will I have sensitivity to light following my Isolaz™ treatment?
No.  Unlike other treatments, the Isolaz™ system does not cause sensitivity to light. 

Have patients been happy with Photopneumatic™ results?
Patients have been extremely happy with their clinical outcomes from Isolaz™ Photopneumatic™ therapy. According to a clinical study 100% of patients surveyed noted that they would choose Isolaz™ Photopneumatics™ over previously experienced laser and light based treatments for hair removal and skin rejuvenation. [Reference: Novel Photopneumatic Therapy Delivers High-Efficiency Photons to Dermal Targets, Vic Narurkar, MD. Vol 18, No. 2, February 2005, Cosmetic Dermatology]

Is there downtime associated with the treatment?
Isolaz™ treatments are relaxing and do not include side effects such as redness, crusting or other common post-treatment discomforts.  With Isolaz™ therapy, you can go right back to your normal activities immediately post-treatment.
