Isolaz Photopneumatic (PPx) Therapy
Isolaz® Therapy is a breakthrough aesthetic treatment that uses a revolutionary combination of pneumatic energy and broadband light. Isolaz® treatments are essentially pain free and are clinically proven effective and safe for the treatment of:
• Acne treatment for alltypes of acne
• Age spots or brown blotchy pigmentation or melasma
• Telangiectasias or fine facial veins often improve with a few treatments
Immediately following treatment, you can resume your normal activities. There is no down time after Isolaz® Therapy.
How It Works
Isolaz® therapy’s patented process combines the unique properties of therapeutic light with pressure (pneumatic energy) to bring you a breakthrough method for the treatment of acne, unwanted hair, uneven pigment and unwanted veins.
A “pulling up” motion gently lifts a small amount of the treatment area into a specially designed hygienic treatment tip. Targets (unwanted hair, unwanted pigments and unsightly veins) are lifted and brought closer to the skin’s surface. When therapeutic light is applied, the light is converted to a gentle heat energy which is absorbed by the target (unwanted hair, unwanted pigments and unsightly veins). The energy applied is concentrated in the target to be destroyed, protecting the surrounding normal tissue. Skin is then instantly returned to its normal position and the treatment handpiece is moved onto the next treatment area. The process is repeated until the entire treatment area is covered. (See diagram.)
What to Expect
Before the Treatment:
Before treatment begins, the doctor will apply a soothing mist to your skin, to hydrate it.
NOTE: Isolaz® therapy is designed to provide you with a safe & comfortable treatment.
The doctor will place the handpiece on the area to be treated. Based on your skin type (the amount of melanin in your skin) and the body part being treated, appropriate settings will be selected.
You will feel a gentle and warm sensation as your skin is drawn into the treatment tip. In less than a second, mild light energy will be applied and you will feel your skin being gently released back into normal position. The doctor will then move on to the next treatment area, and repeat the process over the entire treatment area.
In a recent clinical study, 100 percent of patients reported no pain during treatment. Treatment sensation was most commonly described as being similar to that of a warm massage.
Isolaz® is very fast. Below is a comparison of typical treatment durations for commonly requested treatments.
