Isolaz® technology from Solta Medical combines vacuum with a broadband light to deliver safe, quick and effective acne treatment. The wavelength varies from 400-1200nm, allowing for full customization of the treatment.

The vacuum helps loosen and extract dirt, blackheads and excess oil from deep within the pores. Then the light helps destroy acne-causing bacteria and reduce facial redness. Great for all skin types, Isolaz® can treat most types of acne. Four to six treatments are typically needed, with most patients seeing a visible improvement in the redness or severity of their acne after the first treatment.

The board-certified physicians at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York have an extensive range of laser devices that allow us to customize all our patient’s treatments to ensure an optimal outcome. We have the experience and expertise to help you meet all your aesthetic goals with comfortable treatments and minimal downtime in most cases. Our team would be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns and create a personalized treatment plan to keep you looking and feeling your absolute best.

How does the Isolaz Acne Laser Work?

The Isolaz device combines a gentle vacuum with broadband light therapy. The suction removes blackheads and unclogs pores, while the light emitted kills the bacteria that lead to the acne breakouts. The result is skin that is smoother and clearer after the very first treatment. You will see continued improvement with a series of treatment sessions.

When Will I See Results?

You will likely see improvement immediately following your first Isolaz treatment. The results should continue to progress with each subsequent treatment until you achieve smoother, clearer skin. 

How Long is the Recovery Time After Treatment?

There is no recovery after an Isolaz treatment. You can return to your regular activities right away. Skin may look slightly red, but that side effect will subside within a matter of hours.
