Laser Acne Treatment Overview
Acne can be frustrating for individuals of all ages, but it can be especially aggravating for adults. Patients who suffer from acne and have not been able to receive relief from oral and topical medication, may find laser acne treatment to be the answer. Pittsburgh plastic surgeon, Dr. James Fernau, offers Isolaz acne light treatment—a revolutionary system that deep cleans the facial pores so that a radiant, clear complexion can result. This laser system removes blackheads, whiteheads, deep-rooted oils and significantly improves the appearance of acne, as well as reduces pore size, while offering a glowing complexion.
Laser Acne Treatment Reviews
"I was referred to Dr. Fernau by another plastic surgeon in 2009 to reduce the appearance of acne scars and a chickenpox scar. Since then I have had three procedures performed by Dr. Fernau, including the CO2 laser, and the results have been incredible. I actually have my first fraxel laser treatment today with Cindy Scozio, the Aesthetician at Dr. Fernau’s office. She is extremely talented and very personable. I highly recommend her microdermabrasion. After just two microderms from Cindy and using the Acne Kit by Dr. Fernau my skin is finally acne free."- K.S. / Office Visit / May 28, 2015
"I began going to Dr. Fernau’s office for hopes of clearing up my acne. I have been working with Cindy for a good while now and my face looks so much better. I have had a few Isolaz treatments and chemical peels that I was skeptical about at first but they have made a huge difference. Cindy does an excellent job, she is very personable and knows exactly what treatment to do to get my best results. I am so thankful to have found such a kind-hearted and well-educated individual as her to improve my skin tremendously."- M.P. / Office Visit / May 27, 2015
"As a life long acne sufferer I felt that there was no solution but to wait and see what happens with my skin. After finding Dr. Fernau’s office and his licensed aesthetician CindyScozio I know that that is no longer the case. I have gone through one Isolaz treatment, 3 microdermabrasions, and the use of Dr. Fernau’s acne kit and Cindy has transformed my skin. My face and back are both almost completely clear, and I am no longer embarrassed to go out in public without makeup. Cindy is kind and knowledgeable and she always has the best interest of her patients in mind. She is not out to sell treatments, she honestly cares about everyone seeing results. With an extremely kind and professional staff, I know I will continue to be a client at Dr. Fernau’s office."- T.P. / Office Visit / May 28, 2015
How Isolaz Works
Isolaz eliminates the need for oral prescriptions or lengthy skincare regimens. Through technological innovation, Isolaz therapy effectively treats acne directly in the doctor’s office with immediate results showing within 24-48 hours. Within about a 30-minute timeframe, Isolaz cleans, purifies and replenishes each acne spot and the surrounding area. A special vacuum gently lifts the acne impurities closer to the skin’s surface, and a broadband light is used to destroy acne-causing bacteria. Once the acne pours have been treated and are still “open”, topical ointments are applied to help keep the area clean and replenished.
