In the “Lasers for acne” section, Sarnoff makes note of a combination therapy featuring a vacuum and a painless laser is used to deeply cleanse and purify pores from the inside out. This device is the Isolaz by the Aesthera Corporation.

n the same section, she mentions a hand-held phototherapy device for the treatment and prevention of acne that consists of a blue light (414 nm LED) and a red light (6660 nm LED). This is the Tanda Professional Skin Care System from Pharos Life Corporation.

In the “Microablative fractional resurfacing” section, Sarnoff notes a system that allows clients to see tissue tightening, and textural and pigmentary improvement with only four to five days of downtime. This piece of equipment is the DOT Therapy by Eclipsemed, Ltd.
