Arguably the world’s most common skin condition, acne affects 85 percent of us at some point in our lives. It’s not caused by dirty skin or eating greasy foods. People of all ages may develop zits and other spots due to oil, dead skin, and bacteria that blocks pores. We’re glad you’ve found Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center when searching for an “Acne Treatment Near Me in Huntington NY,” because our innovative laser treatment for acne takes direct aim at the causes of clogged pores, and persistent irritation.
Isolaz to the rescue
Acne may remain the same, but technology has transformed how we treat it. When the array of cleansers, lotions, masks, and pads fail, Dr. Roger Koreen and his team offer professional therapies such as Isolaz that work. Used singly or combined with other treatments, Isolaz takes the “CPR” approach to treat the real culprits:
- C — Cleans pores
- P — Purifies, inside-out
- R — Replenishes skin
How Isolaz works
A multi-faceted therapy, Isolaz combines three proven techniques into one powerful acne-fighter:
- A device that uses vacuum suction
- Laser light energy
- Topical skincare products
Using a special tip, the vacuum gently cleanses pores, lifting dirt, blackheads, and excess oil. Broadband laser light purifies, killing acne-producing bacteria, and removing dead skin cells and oils. Innovative Profusion technology suction replenishes skin, producing intercellular spaces that allow topical products to be absorbed effectively – enhancing and improving results.
Treatment sessions explained
Because Isolaz is noninvasive and so well-tolerated, little preparation is required before treatment. Skin is merely sprayed with water. No numbing creams are needed for your comfort. After treatment areas are moistened, the Isolaz tip is placed in the trouble area. Device settings are adjusted to your unique characteristics, including:
- Skin type
- Area being treated
As skin is drawn into the treatment tip through vacuum suction, you may feel a slight pressure and warm sensation. Most patients compare Isolaz treatment to a warm massage.
Dr. Koreen then moves onto the second part of the process: the laser. A flash of light that delivers therapeutic energy is applied to the same treatment area, and bacteria is destroyed. These steps are repeated in a different treatment zone, until all problem areas have been addressed. The third and final part of treatment involves using Profusion technology to gently and painlessly stretch the skin as topical products are applied.
In a clinical study, no patients reported pain or other unwanted side effects during treatment. Isolaz is also fast; faces can be treated in 20 minutes, while other areas are treated in 30 minutes. Afterward, you return to work, school, and other activities with no downtime or special care.
Many patients immediately see improvements in the look and feel of their skin following Isolaz treatment. It’s common to see a healthy, luminous glow, and we often hear that patients’ skin feels cleaner and refreshed. FDA-cleared for all skin types, Isolaz is clinically-proven to relieve redness and discoloration, and to dry and flatten pimples in 24 to 48 hours. You don’t have to wait to enjoy beautiful results!
Within two months, patients reportedly reduced acne lesions by more than 75 percent. These patients formerly hadn’t responded to other products or laser therapies.

Prevention is the best treatment!
Isolaz is a powerful treatment on its own, but it can also complement other treatments or jumpstart patients’ skincare regimens. Dr. Koreen and the team at the Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center are adept at working with patients over the long haul to prevent and manage acne flare-ups. Customized and diligent skincare at home helps to minimize time in the treatment chair. You can help keep your skin clear by:
- Washing your face with warm water and mild soaps.
- Resisting the temptation to pop zits that may develop.
- Making sure your hands are clean before applying anything to your face.
- Removing makeup before going to bed.
- Using sun protection, because tanning can make acne worse.
Importantly, be well! Managing stress, getting quality sleep, and eating a healthy, balanced diet is great for your overall health. And when you’re healthy, it shows on your skin.
