Approximately 17 million people in the United States alone have acne, and of those, nearly 85 percent are between the ages of 17 and 24. Acne is a common skin condition that results from an overproduction of oil. The plugged pores create breakouts and lesions called pimples, zits, whiteheads, blackheads, nodules or cysts; depending on the severity of the acne. Acne most commonly appears on the face, neck, shoulders and back and affects the same amount of men as it does women, however men tend to suffer for longer periods of time because of their testosterone levels. Usually when hormone levels stabilize in their mid-20’s, the chances of mild to severe outbreaks lessens significantly.
But for those that have been plagued with bad genes and still have to battle acne long after pubescent years, simple scrubs and facial cleansers aren’t going to cut it anymore. A more long-term and ultimately life changing solution needs to be found. Dr. Rokhsar will meet each patient in order to access their individual needs and options for the best acne breakout preventions and long-term solutions.
Isolaz uses Photopneumatic technology and a pore cleansing vacuum to extract dirt, blackheads and the problematic excess oil found deep within the pores. After unwanted acne causing materials have been removed from the skin, the Isolaz’s broadband light destroys the bacteria within the pores and ultimately reduces redness immediately after treatment. The patient is left with a cleaner, more purified skin, and once relieved of acne causing bacteria, the skin will tighten and taut itself once again, making it an excellent choice for adult acne sufferers.
