Acne breakouts can make you feel self-conscious about your skin. In addition, this frustrating skin condition can cause you to develop scars and other unpleasant symptoms. Fortunately, you can easily treat your blackheads, pimples, and other issues by getting Isolaz treatments at Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek in Denver, Colorado.
What Is Isolaz?
Isolaz is a sophisticated treatment that is designed to improve your pimples and blemishes. This treatment uses innovative techniques to remove the bacteria, oil, and other materials that are causing you to experience acne breakouts.
During your Isolaz treatment, we will use a special device to remove oil, debris, and blackheads from your skin. After your treatment is complete, your skin will be clearer and your pores will look smaller. This Isolaz treatment is a very effective way to improve your acne. In fact, in a scientific study, 85% of people who used this Isolaz treatment experienced improvements in their acne.
Why Am I Suffering From Acne Breakouts?
You shouldn’t feel embarrassed or ashamed if you develop pimples, blackheads, and other blemishes. Even if you carefully wash your face and try to take good care of your skin, you can still experience acne breakouts.
Your hormones and skin type play a large role in the condition of your skin. For example, if you have naturally oily skin, you will be more likely to suffer from acne breakouts. Your hormones, genes, and environment can affect the amount of oil that your skin creates. In addition, cleaning your face in a harsh manner can irritate your skin and make your acne worse.
What Techniques Does This Treatment Use to Improve My Acne?
This FDA-approved treatment uses broadband light and vacuum technology to fix acne. When we move our Isolaz device over your skin, it will use a suction technique to remove oil, dirt, and dead cells from the pores in your treatment area.
As the device clears away these materials, it will also transmit broadband light energy into your skin. This energy will kill bacteria on the surface of your skin. After we have used this light to clean away this bacteria, we will apply specialized products onto your skin.
What Areas of My Body Can This Acne Treatment Improve?
It’s common to use this treatment to clear up acne that appears on your face. In addition to improving the skin on your face, we can also use this technique to treat acne on your chest and back.
What Types of Acne Can This Treatment Be Used to Address?
We can use this treatment to address many different types of acne.
If you suffer from pustular acne, you will have small blemishes, which are known as pustules, on your skin. These pustules often look like small bumps that are filled with pus or fluid. These blemishes frequently develop on your face, chest, or back.
These pustules develop when your pores are filled with dead skin cells and oil. As your pores become clogged, your skin will bulge outward and you will develop white bumps. Fortunately, our acne treatment is great at clearing your pores and reducing your chances of experiencing pustular acne.
Acne vulgaris, also known as common acne, often develops on your shoulders, back, face, and chest. Although this issue frequently begins when your hormones change during puberty, this skin problem may develop after you become an adult. Taking certain medications and experiencing hormonal changes during pregnancy can also cause you to develop this problem.
It can be difficult to treat acne vulgaris with topical medications and over-the-counter products. Fortunately, our specialized treatment is a great way to clear this type of acne and achieve attractive, beautiful skin.
This treatment is also a good way to fix comedonal acne. If you have this type of acne, you will have bumpy blemishes on your skin. The most common types of these blemishes, which scientists call comedones, are whiteheads and blackheads. These blemishes frequently appear on your chin and forehead.
Blackheads and whiteheads develop when dead skin cells become stuck inside your hair follicles. Acne is created when these dead cells mix with the oils in your skin. If your blemishes are open, the melanin inside your pores will oxidize and become dark when it is exposed to air. This type of blemish is called a blackhead.
How Should I Prepare for My Acne Treatment?
You can continue using your usual skincare products and acne medications during the days before your appointment. However, you should not get a spray tan or use other artificial tanning methods to improve your skin for at least two weeks. If you have an artificial tan, you should allow your skin to return to normal before you receive your acne treatment.
Will My Acne Treatment Be Uncomfortable?
This treatment uses very comfortable methods to improve your acne. As a result, you will not need to receive local anesthesia or use other methods to numb your skin during your appointment.
Instead, we will begin your treatment by providing you with protective goggles to wear over your eyes. Next, we will gently clean your skin. After your skin is ready, we will carefully move the tip of our device over the skin in your target area. You will feel a soft sensation of suction and warmth as the device treats your acne. Many people say that this feeling is similar to a massage.
How Quickly Will This Treatment Improve My Acne?
If you are eager to see positive changes in your skin, you will probably be pleasantly surprised by the results of this fast-acting treatment. This effective technique usually produces improvements in your acne within 24 to 48 hours.
Do I Need to Stay Home and Rest After I Receive This Acne Treatment?
Some skincare treatments are difficult and uncomfortable. These treatments can cause your skin to burn, peel, and develop other problems. In addition, your skin could become very sensitive after your treatment is complete. As a result, you might have to stay home while your skin is recovering from your aesthetic treatment.
Fortunately, this acne treatment does not require you to take a long break from your job, hobbies, and other activities. Instead, you can go back to your usual activities as soon as you leave our office. In addition, this treatment will not make your skin sensitive to light. As a result, you don’t have to worry about staying indoors during the next couple of days. You’ll be able to go on walks, hikes, and enjoy other activities in nature.
How Many Acne Treatments Will I Need?
It’s normal to notice improvements in your blemishes, redness, and other acne issues after you get one Isolaz treatment. However, under some circumstances, you may achieve more significant improvements in your acne if you receive a series of treatments.
Your treatment schedule will be designed to fit the severity of your acne, the condition of your skin, and your individual needs and preferences. That said, it’s normal to get about two to six treatments. To give your pores and skin cells sufficient time to react to this treatment, we will wait for one to two weeks between each of your appointments.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Acne Treatment?
If you have uncomfortable acne breakouts that haven’t responded to medications, skincare products, or other cosmetic techniques, you will probably be a good candidate for this treatment. Further, since this treatment works on all skin types, you can benefit from this technique if you have dry or sensitive skin.
Although this treatment can fix many different types of acne, it will not work for everyone. In particular, this treatment is not designed to address severe cystic acne. In addition, you cannot use this technique if you have taken isotretinoin within six months. This medication, which is also known as Accutane, can alter your body’s response to our acne treatment.
Can I Use Other Techniques to Improve My Skin?
After you have cleared up your acne, you will probably want to continue improving the condition of your skin. At Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek, we can use many different techniques to improve your wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other skin problems.
DiamondTome is a microdermabrasion treatment that uses a special wand to resurface your skin. This gentle treatment rejuvenates your skin by clearing away your dead skin cells and other debris. We frequently use this treatment to address sun damage, forehead lines, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. In addition, we can use this technique to remove your whiteheads and blackheads.
SilkPeel uses a non-invasive method to exfoliate your skin and improve the appearance of your complexion. During a SilkPeel treatment, we will use a handheld device to gently exfoliate your target area. This device will also remove impurities in your pores and apply special serums onto your skin. This technique will diminish your lines and reduce your hyperpigmentation. This technique can also be used to moisturize dry skin.
Receiving a chemical peel can be a great way to fix many different skin issues. During your treatment, we will carefully apply a customized solution of different chemicals onto your skin. We can provide many different types of chemical peels, including beta peels, glycolic peels, and Jessner peels. These peels can improve sun damage, acne, and other issues.
Botox and other injectable products can be used to smooth your wrinkles and minimize fine lines on your face. Botox is frequently used to correct the lines and wrinkles that develop between your eyebrows and on your forehead. When you visit our office for these treatments, your injections can be performed by Dr. Adrienne Stewart. She is an expert injector who teaches other people how to perform these treatments.
In addition to Botox, we can use dermal fillers from the Restylane and Juvederm collections to improve lines that form around your nose and mouth. These dermal fillers can also give you a more youthful appearance by plumping up your lips and cheeks. The results of many of these dermal fillers will last for up to two years.
Microneedling will renew your skin by increasing your elastin and collagen levels. During this treatment, we will make tiny injuries in the skin in your target area. When your body repairs these micro-injuries, it will start to make more elastin and collagen proteins. This repair process will reduce your lines and scars.
