Living with acne or acne scars long after your teenage years can be frustrating, or even debilitating for your self-esteem. As we age, so does our skin, which means not all treatments will work the same throughout our lives. At La Jolla Cosmetic Laser Clinic, we are proud to offer some of the most advanced skin and body treatments in the La Jolla and San Diego areas, including acne treatments such as Isolaz. This non-invasive, non-surgical procedure is the treatment you have been looking for to restore your confidence, as well as your healthy, glowing, youthful skin.


What is Isolaz?

Isolaz™ acne laser treatment uses a special process that involves both suction and the use of medical broadband light. Unlike stand-alone light treatments which only address the problem of bacteria growth, the Isolaz physically removes impacted sebum and dead skin cells which cause a backup of excess oil. It is this oil/cell debris that acts as a food source for bacteria. The light kills any present bacteria (called p. acnes) to help quickly reduce inflammation and stop the acne lesions from enlarging.

What are the Benefits of Isolaz?

Eliminating acne is your goal, and it is what we can achieve with Isolaz in San Diego and La Jolla. No matter what the cause of your acne is, this specialty treatment is designed to fix the underlying issue so that your skin can thrive. Here are some of the main benefits our patients see when they come to our clinic to get the Isolaz treatment:

  • Clear pores and remove the food source for future bacteria
  • Kill existing bacteria at the same time
  • Reduce inflammation and redness

Who are the Best Candidates for Isolaz?

A San Diego and La Jolla Isolaz™ pore purification can benefit anyone who has enlarged or clogged pores. Simply having clogged pores does not mean someone will have acne breakouts, but keeping the pores clear will help prevent that possibility. Many patients who feel their skin is sluggish, or who have enlarged pores due to heavy oil output, like the effects of clear pores – and the appearance of finer textured skin.

Isolaz™ is intended for mild to moderate acne. However, if you have severe acne with cysts and nodules, combined with dermatological prescriptions, it can become part of an enhanced acne treatment plan.

What’s the First Step?

The first step to getting an Isolaz treatment is to schedule a consultation. We offer free consultation sessions to call our clients. During the session, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and problem areas with the doctor. It is also a good time to ask questions and share any concerns or reservations you have about the treatment. We want to ensure you make the right decision by being fully informed. Our doctor will also assess your skin and the areas you wish to work on, to ensure you are a good candidate for the treatment. 

Once you and your provider have agreed upon every aspect of the treatment, your custom procedure plan will be made and our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your first session. You will also be provided with instructions to follow that will help you achieve optimal results.


What to Expect on the Day of an Isolaz Treatment

Before your scheduled appointment, we ask you to do two things: don’t pick at existing acne, and come to the office without makeup (or expect us to remove any makeup you may be wearing). Bring a list of any medications you may be taking internally or applying to your skin.

The Isolaz device combines a gentle vacuum with broadband light therapy. Your provider will use the handheld device to suction out any blackheads and unclog 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. 

The treatment time is quite short and is completed in about 20 minutes. It can be scheduled during your lunch break, or in between meetings. You can go about your day as normal once the treatment is complete. 

Once an Isolaz™ treatment is complete, your provider will provide you with specific skin care regimens to help you keep your acne under control. Acne is not “cured” but can be controlled with proper product use, certain product avoidance, and dedicated compliance with medical recommendations.


Isolaz Recovery

Most patients see an immediate improvement within 24-48 hours of their first Isolaz™ treatment. Initially, you may see “new” acne pimples surface as the suction mechanism pulls debris closer to the surface. Multiple treatments progress your skin to a dramatically clearer condition. Treatments are usually provided weekly for 4 to 6 weeks.

Isolaz™ treatments may leave your skin slightly red for several hours after treatment, but this is not always the case. For some patients, a brief increase in acne presence may be displayed after the first session. These new acne lesions – which typically would be “underground” and feeding on oils and bacteria – will resolve more quickly.

88% of patients who tried Isolaz™ during clinical studies displayed a reduction of acne and had fewer blackheads and pimples. The effects of Isolaz can last up to a year after a completed series. The FDA has specifically approved Isolaz for comedonal and pustular acne so you can feel secure that the treatment is safe.

Isolaz is not pain free. Depending on your sensitivity levels, how much existing inflammation you have, and the number of acne lesions, you can expect some varying degrees of light discomfort. However, all of our patients have found the treatment to be very tolerable.
