For sufferers of acne who have tried many treatments but are unable to get their condition under control, Nouriche offers the Isolaz Acne Laser. Isolaz uses vacuum to purify the pores combined with intense pulse light (IPL) therapy to kill bacteria.
The vacuum removes debris stuck deep in the pores, or brings it closer to the skin’s surface allowing your aesthetician to extract it. The light therapy kills bacteria deep in the pores and can decrease oil production of the sebaceous glands. Click through these before and after photos to see some amazing Isolaz transformations.
Isolaz uses its unique a combination of light therapy and vacuum technology to:
- Purify from the inside out
- Cleanse the pores
- Replenish the skin
