What if I only get a breakout every once in a while – could I still have an Isolaz treatment? aspwv
No acne treatment can claim to work 100% of the time, but many patients who have not responded to other acne treatments, such as antibiotics, topical creams or even lasers have responded to Isolaz treatments. That’s because Isolaz treats multiple root causes of acne, like clogged hair follicles, reducing oil production and reducing the bacteria responsible for acne flare ups. In fact, studies have shown that patients who had Isolaz treatments achieved 90% acne clearance. Talk to your Isolaz treatment provider about your specific case.
