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.

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.

PrecisionTx Acne Treatment

PrecisionTX, a game-changing technology, is pioneering a new alternative treatment for reducing acne. One sessions can yield up to an eighty percent improvement

What to Expect

Isolaz is performed in our office. It is a painless procedure and typically lasts about 20 minutes. There is no downtime associated with Isolaz acne treatment. Unlike some acne treatments, Isolaz does not leave the skin sensitive to sunlight. On average, depending on how much acne there is to treat, most patients will benefit most by having 4-6 treatments.

Expected Cost

The estimated fee averages between $200 to $500 per session for an Isolaz acne treatment session. This will ultimately depend on the amount of acne being treatment and how many sessions are needed to attain the best results. The estimated fee for Precision TX averages between $3,000 to $6,000.
