Isolaz™ - A Breakthrough, Painless Laser Treatment for Acne and clogged pores
Recently, the FDA cleared a new treatment for acne called Isolaz™. Rated as one of the three hottest products at the 2007 American Academy of Dermatology conference, Isolaz™ laser uses a breakthrough technology called Photopneumatics™ that purifies your pores from the inside out.
No matter your age, skin type or type of acne, Isolaz™ deep pore purification is a revolutionary way to improve your complexion. Isolaz™ is a breakthrough technology for the following reasons:
It is a painless laser treatment for acne.
It is the only system that purifies your pores from the inside.
It is the only system that combines vacuum and laser to help destroy acne causing bacteria.
It is the only FDA system cleared to treat comedonal (blackheads and whiteheads), pustular and cystic acne.
Isolaz™ clinical studies show rapid results within 24-48 hours, including reduced redness, reduction of skin discoloration and rapid drying/flattening of the blemish.
People who have tried Isolaz™ have reported a visible reduction in pore size, improved skin tone and texture for a radiant, healthier looking complexion.
Isolaz™ pore-purification therapy helps jump-start treatments, helping your skin absorb medicines and moistures better and is a great way to maintain results.
Isolaz is often effective on non-responders to traditional therapies including patients who had tried topical or oral acne medicines or other lasers.
How does Isolaz Laser work?
Isolaz is the only aesthetic device that combines vacuum and laser for their synergistic benefits. The vacuum helps to loosen and extract dirt, blackheads and excess oil from deep within your pores. The specialized wavelength of light delivered to your skin helps to destroy acne causing bacteria. This combined treatment process, called Photopneumatic therapy, is unique to the Isolaz. Additional benefits include a more even complexion and revitalized skin tone.
How does Isolaz feel?
Isolaz is very comfortable. You will feel a gentle and warm sensation as your skin is drawn into the treatment tip. A very gentle light energy will be applied to the treatment area, immediately after which you will feel your skin being gently released back into normal position. Patients describe the sensation as being similar to that of a warm massage. No anesthetic or numbing creams are required.
Do I need to take time off from work or school to recuperate?
Isolaz is a fast, no down-time procedure. You can resume normally activities including going back to work immediately post treatment. Tanning and sun exposure should be avoided before and after treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
For acne, we generally recommend an initial series of 4 treatments, provided at 1-2 week intervals. We then do two more treatments, spaced a month apart. A schedule for maintenance is then customized for you, based on severity of your acne.
Can topical or oral medicines be used concurrent with the Isolaz treatments?
Yes. We can further enhance results when topical or oral medicines are combined with Isolaz treatments. We can often simplify and decrease the number of medicines patients have been accustomed to take for their acne.
Can I use Isolaz to keep pores clean and open if I don’t have acne?
Yes. This is called deep pore cleansing and this is a welcomed by many patients who previously had no options for this type of treatment.
Can I combine Isolaz with other acne or acne scar laser treatments?
Yes, most definetly. We use Isolaz in combination with Smoothbeam laser, Fraxel for the added benefit of pore purification and acne reduction offered by the Isolaz.
Can Isolaz be used in patients with darker skin?
Yes, the Isolaz is safe to use in all skin types. For patients with darker skin, we use a specialized tip designed especially for this use.
It is vital to undergo a full pre assessment to ensure that your skin type is fully assessed and to be accurate about your medical history. This particular procedure might not be the right treatment for you. It is crucial that the Doctor does a full History and Physical Examination and listens to your concerns. It very important to understand the individual needs of each patient because one procedure could work on one patient and then not another.

I personally see every new patient who visits our office. I am not just a physician, I am a Board Certified Dermatologist. My goal is, quite simply, to provide the type of dermatologic care which I would seek for my own family. This is a very important point, since physicians often use the phrase "Doctor's Doctor" to refer to those individuals who typically are selected by physicians themselves for personal care. I am confident that my practice fully meets that definition. This is the type of 5-star care and service that our patients expect, deserve and receive. I treat every patient the way I would want to be treated: with courtesy, dignity and respect. I carefully listen to their hair and skin-care concerns and offer a variety of options including a treatment plan that I believe will give them the best results
Dr Gary sees every patient himself and believes in personalized care. The Doctor does not employ any physician assistants, nurse practitioners, or other physician substitutes to do his treatment. He sees every patient himself at every visit.
A significant percentage of my Dermatology Conditions are diagnosed on listening to medical history of the patient alone, a further percentage on examination and the remainder on further investigation and my patients teach me the rest. It is clear to me that history and examination skills remain at the very core of my dermatology practice. Older Dermatologists like myself rely on history and physical to a greater degree than the younger dermatologists. I think that the pendulum has swung too far towards all these cosmetic procedures where the younger dermatologists are just doing cosmetic procedures and not listening to their patients. This is an important point because if the Dermatologist does not spend enough time with the patient the cosmetic procedures will not work.
