Acne is the most common type of chronic skin problem, which can be unsightly and uncomfortable, causing a negative effect on a person’s self-esteem. We believe acne should be treated aggressively to minimize the possibility of scarring. Cocoona offers two types of acne treatment:
Oral medication is the first step in acne treatment/ acne scars removal. If the acne does not respond to oral medication, then we recommend alternative acne treatments like Isolaz.
Isolaz is a revolutionary acne treatment that combines vacuum with broadband light to offer you a chance to purify and cleanse your skin inside out.
Isolaz allows you to:
It is ideal for those that have tried everything including antibiotics, topical, lasers and Accutane/ Isotretinoin treatments, to no avail.
Isolaz is considered by many to be the most effective means of acne removal. Moreover, it is a quick and painless alternative to most conventional acne treatments. In fact, since there is no need for pre-treatment medication or topical anesthetic, most of our patients get their treatment done during their lunch breaks! Depending on the coverage area, the procedure hardly takes more than 15 to 30 minutes – it’s undoubtedly the easiest, and the most convenient means for acne removal.
The acne treatment begins by cleansing, toning and exfoliating the skin with steam, followed by Microdrainage. Next, a vacuum hand piece is placed onto your skin, gently lifting the acne impurities closer to the skins surface, cleaning and purifying the pores. This is followed by the application of a laser that helps to destroy the acne, sloughing the oils and dead skin cells away. Microscopic holes are made around the scars by the laser to regenerate the healing process. As a result, your skin is healthier, clearer and cleaner. Many patients experience a radiant glow, skin tightening affects, and the reduction of pore size.

A series of 6 sessions is recommended every 2 weeks. To maintain the results, it is recommended to have a periodic follow up with our dermatologist/ cosmetologist.
