Waterproof makeup is great for those beach and pool days, but remember to thoroughly cleanse your skin at the end of the day as these products can be thick and “cakey”.
Isolaz™ is an acne, skin rejuvenation and hair removal system powered by a technology called Photopneumatics™, which combines a vacuum and painless broadband light for the purpose of deeply cleansing and purifying the pores from the inside out. The vacuum helps to loosen and extract dirt, blackheads and excess sebum (natural body oil) from deep within the follicles and pores. The additional laser application can help destroy P. acnes, (acne causing bacteria), purge uneven skin tones, clear sun damaged skin, reduce facial redness and facial veins or eliminate fine, unwanted hair. Photopneumatics™ is a proprietary technology available only with Isolaz™ treatments. Photo pertains to light, and Pneumatics pertains to the vacuum application. Isolaz™ is quick, easy and painless, and requires no anesthesia. In fact, many people have their treatments done during lunch and return to normal activities immediately after. Clients have found their skin feels tighter and has a healthy radiant glow following the therapy. In addition, Isolaz™ therapy is effective and suitable for all skin types.
DESCRIPTION OF TREATMENT
An entire Isolaz™ treatment takes roughly 10-25 minutes. Legs, backs and faces can often be treated in less than 30 minutes. Before the treatment begins, the skin will be hydrated with a soothing mist before applying the application tip. Since the treatment is painless, there is no need for pre-numbing gel. Based on the skin type and the amount of melanin in the skin and the body part being treated, the appropriate settings will be selected on the Isolaz™ system. NOTE: All skin types can be treated with Isolaz.
The Isolaz™ application hand piece applies gentle pressure on the pores while the painless laser helps destroy the acne causing bacteria. This also helps soften and remove blackheads, dead cells and other debris from deep within the pores. The light suctioning action from the system begins to lift more of the acne impurities and dirt from the pores, while treating skin pigmentation problems, facial veins and or fine facial hair. A gentle and warm sensation will be felt along the treatment area as the skin is drawn into the treatment tip. The treatment provider will then move on to the next treatment area, and repeat the process with a series of light and vacuum contractions over the entire treatment area. Most clients report the sensation as being similar to that of a warm massage.
Results are typically visible after one day of treatment, although it usually takes 2-4 treatments for optimal skin rejuvenation and acne elimination results.
Isolaz™ can purify the hair follicles and pores on the face, chest, shoulders, buttocks and legs. The technology is suitable for all skin types and ethnicities.
There are no transient side effects or risks associated with the Isolaz™ treatment system. Clients can resume normal activities immediately after, and will typically not experience any redness, swelling, bruising or crusting commonly associated with more aggressive laser modalities.
The Isolaz™ system is U.S. FDA cleared to treat pustular and comedonal acne, as well as mild to moderate acne and acne vulgaris, or common acne. Isolaz™ is also U.S. FDA cleared to treat benign vascular and pigmented lesions, and perform permanent hair reduction.
The average cost of an Isolaz™ treatment can range from $400-$600 per treated area. In addition, 4-5 treatments will most likely be required for the best results. Therefore, one could spend as little as $1,600 or as much as $3,000 for a full Isolaz™ treatment.
