    Day 2

    Hello everyone! I created this blog to track my skin's progress as I begin Isolaz treatments. Mainly, this blog is for me to keep track of how I'm doing, but anyone and everyone, please feel free to comment with your feedback. I'm 22 years old and I've had acne since I was a teenager. It has always been relatively light to moderate until recently. In high school I have used topicals such as Duac and Atralin which were severely drying for me and worked okay, but never fully cleared my skin (A

    Day 57

    Hi all! I hope everyone is having a happy holiday season Since my skin was doing much better after my last Isolaz treatment, I decided to hold off on it and go in again in 4 weeks. My next Isolaz appointment is on January 11th. Although my skin is doing significantly better, unfortunately I'm still breaking out in 2-4 pustules every few weeks or so. I've noticed as soon as my old breakouts completely go away, new ones crop up and it's so annoying...!! I feel like my skin stays clear for

    After awhile I feel like it's not getting much better because every time when I do Isolaz, all the active acne would be flatten for 2-3 days. After that new pimples emerge from the remaining close comedones. It's like a never ending cycle. Plus my skin scars really badly. I can't have this going on like this! I really need to find a solution for those closed comedones.

    I just got a treatment today. I took this picture right after the treatment. It's not as red as last time. I'm happy to say that it's not as painful as last time. In fact, it's not painful at all. I barely feel the suction. Maybe it's because my face is now cleared of painful cystic acne. I only have a lot of stubborn closed pores or whiteheads that don't wanna go away. The nurse extracted some of that today. But there are still quit a lot that are not ready to come out. http://pimpleapocaly..
  5. I just wanted to share my experience of isolaz and topical treatment. First of all, a little background of myself. I have suffered from ance for about 10 years of my life. I am now 23 years old and i am just sick of it. Through my 10 years, i have broken severely twice because of using unsuitable makeup and also not removing it properly. As i had really sensitive and dry skin, i decided to use really mild cleansers to clean off my makeup. I used to have avene gentle milk cleanser to take off my

    Day 18

    I'm into my 3rd week of acne treatments now and I'm definitely still purging. I have 9 little whiteheads, a couple of them inflamed. Although, I'm happy to say that I have no new cysts and the ones I have had are still shrinking. While these little pesky whiteheads are annoying, they aren't bad at all. They will probably clear up in a day or 2 thanks to Differin. It's always the really big whiteheads and cysts/nodules you have to worry about because they take forever to heal and leave nasty scar

    Day 16

    I had my second Isolaz treatment yesterday, and as expected, it went well. My derm started the same way by wiping down my face with wet gauze. She then upped the setting of the laser from the last treatment and went over my face twice this time (she only did the laser part once last time), then passed over my face with the vacuum. I asked her to avoid my forehead because of the hickey marks, and she said that was fine as I don't particularly breakout on my forehead anyway. After the Isolaz, she

    Day 5

    Okay, so my skin is full blown broken out. 3 cysts that have been under my skin for the last couple of months came up to the surface. While my face is swollen and sore, I have to say I'm growing to like Differin. It seems to speed up the life cycle of these cysts. One is already a whitehead, and the other two will probably come to a head by today or tomorrow. While I don't like breaking out (especially with such large, painful ones), they've been under my skin for so long as hard bumps that I'm

    Day 34

    My last Isolaz treatment was last Thursday, December 1st. It went pretty much the same as all the other times. It was my 3rd treatment. I am actually starting to see a significant improvement in my skin. I do have 6 small whiteheads/pustules at the moment, but they are small. I noticed that I stopped getting really big inflammatory acne which makes such a huge difference! My skin for once is no longer always inflamed and sore and is now much more even and smooth. The texture is also very sof

    This is how my face looks today. I think my hyperpigmentation and the skin texture have improved a lot. I still get new pimples. But I think they are the result of my closed comedones. They all have to come up eventually. During the treatment the nurse did some extractions but a lot of them are really deep under my skin. Even Isolaz vacuum suction can't get them out. I still have a lot of those under my skin, so I know it's going to be awhile until all of them emerge. I will have another tr
  11. I have had horrible cysts at many times on my face. had surgery as a teen to remove one then one time I had one the size of a golf ball on my forehead...I drove 300 miles to an Isolaz laser with the suction and laser blast, and it went away now I have acne at 40 including some cysts - I used retin-a and Accutane but now - Clearasil Ultra benzoil cream is killing it! Worth the 10 buck a tube. also Neosporin cream or rite aid brand is awesome for reducing redness, healing, making a z

    Day 8

    It has been exactly one week now since my Isolaz treatment and so far, things are well. 2 of those cysts cleared up, and the other is on it's way to healing. Another cyst came up though as well as 3 small pustles but the small ones aren't a big deal. It's expected anyway as I'm in the purging stage and it's that time of the month. Regardless, my skin is doing much better overall. There is much less inflamation and my skin is still very smooth looking and feeling and looking much brighter and les

    I first encountered acne at the young age of ten years old. At that time in my life, the main culprit that was causing my forehead acne was my unkempt bangs. My mother took me to the doctor and prescribed to me tetracycline and a retina topical that did the trick almost instantly. To make sure that I wouldn't become the victim to forehead acne again, I grew out my bangs. About two years later, I can remember this vividly, I woke up one morning to discover that my entire face was covered in

    I'm currently taking Minocycline 100mg. The doctor gave me Finacea. It made my skin worse, it gave me pimples on the area where I didn't have pimples before. And it's too irritating for my skin. So I had to stop. I just got Isolaz consultation today and they said I'm a candidate since I'm taking antibiotics and I'm not using anything that is making my skin sun sensitive. (the skin would burn if you are using accutane, benzoyl, acid, retinol) http://pimpleapocalypse.blogspot.com

    Day 3

    Okay, so not much has changed since yesterday. But I am starting to breakout a tiny bit -- a couple on my chin and a couple on my cheeks. People have mentioned getting an initial breakout from both Isolaz sucking all the bacteria to the surface and Differin purging the skin. While it kind of sucks, I like the idea of purging as it means my body is expelling all this bacteria and gunk. So hopefully in a few weeks to a month or so, it will have brought everything out. Also, it could be a bit aggra
  16. From the album: Isolaz+Laser Genesis

    Over all my skin has improved so much since the first time I got Isolaz treatment. Today I didn't have any cystic acne anymore. There are still some stubborn closed comedones or whiteheads on my cheeks. The nurse told me that it's definitely comes from the inside. And I have to be patient about it. They will eventually come out to a head. I turned really red again today after my third Isolaz treatment. I noticed that when it's done by a different nurse, it could be different setting. The su
