PLEASANTON, Calif., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ --  Aesthera's Isolaz platform was hailed by New York Dermatologist, Dr. Doris Day, as a unique in-office treatment for Rosacea on the January 21st show of ABC News' Good Morning America.

The Isolaz developed by Aesthera Corporation is a proprietary combination of pneumatic energy and broad band light. Best recognized as the gold standard for acne treatment, the Isolaz is the only laser or light based device cleared for the treatment of inflammatory acne, comedonal acne and pustular acne. Doris Day, MD, FAAD, a board certified dermatologist who practices in New York City has treated several hundred patients for Acne now uses a different treatment tip on the Isolaz for the in-office treatment for Rosacea. "The Isolaz is an extremely effective treatment offering for my Rosacea patients. The procedure takes under 10 minutes, and is associated with no pain or downtime," she says. "The Isolaz is invaluable, especially for patients who are resistant to antibiotics or choose not to take them," she adds.

According to the National Rosacea Society, 14 million Americans suffer from Rosacea. Rosacea manifests itself as acute redness on the face, cheeks and forehead. Its acne like effects often cause significant psychological harm, impacting patients' self esteem and self confidence.
