Solta Medical Announces Isolaz 2 Acne System
Vacuum and broadband light treatment offers customized acne solution
HAYWARD, Calif., June 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Solta Medical, Inc. (Nasdaq: SLTM), the global market leader in aesthetic skin treatments, today announced Isolaz® 2, the next generation acne therapy device. Isolaz 2 effectively targets the root causes of acne through a unique, clinically proven combination of vacuum extraction for deep pore purification, broadband light to destroy acne causing bacteria, and a profusion mode to enhance the delivery of topicals into the skin.
"The Isolaz technology is an invaluable tool that sets me apart as a skin specialist; these days, patients want non-systemic and no downtime yet effective acne treatments and Isolaz technology offers all of the above," said Dr. Kenneth Beer, MD., PA., founder of Kenneth Beer MD PA, General, Cosmetic And Surgical Dermatology and voluntary assistant professor at the University of Miami and a consulting associate in the Department of Medicine at Duke University. "The new disposable tips in a variety of sizes offer more options for speed, safety and comfort, expanding treatment area options to include the face, back and chest. With the Isolaz 2 system, physicians can offer safe acne treatments for individual patient needs. I have used the Isolaz technology with great efficacy on many of my patients as well as on my sons."
Isolaz 2 uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy combined with vacuum technology clinical proven to safely and effectively treat acne in a three-step process – Cleanse, Purify, Replenish. First, a vacuum removes sebaceous materials to cleanse the pores; second, broadband light purifies by destroying acne-causing bacteria; third, skincare topicals are infused into the skin for a replenishing effect. Isolaz 2 treatment tips come in small, medium and large sizes along with various lamp filters, allowing physicians to customize treatments to their patients' needs. The disposable, "treat and toss" tips and profusion applicators are hygienic, reduce possible risks of contamination and minimize post-treatment cleanup.
"We are very excited about the expanded options Isolaz 2 creates for both physician and patients," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Solta Medical, Inc. "Isolaz 2 is a fast, comfortable and non-systemic way to treat acne for almost immediate results and fewer breakouts over time. The profusion treatments allow for topical infusion, and Isolaz 2 is safe for all skin types, setting it apart from competitors."
Clinical studies have shown drying and flattening of lesions within 24-48 hours post treatment.1 Patients have seen a decrease in the amount of oil production starting after the first treatment, and also a significant decrease in number, frequency and severity of "break-outs."2 Additionally, non-responders to orals, topicals and lasers experienced over a 75% reduction in lesions within two months.2
