Acne Scars & Sun Spots

Desert Med Aesthetics uses Levulan® Kerastick® Photodynamic Therapy, the most advanced and effective treatment for cystic acne. This treatment is also used for actinic keratoses (AKs), which are rough, scaly patches on the skin that are frequently called “sun spots.” AKs develop as the result of years of sun exposure and are often the first step in the development of skin cancer. People who spend a lot of time outdoors, such as golfers, tennis players, and boaters, have an increased risks for AKs.

Both cystic acne and AKs can be treated with a simple 3-step procedure called Levulan® Kerastick®.  Results are usually seen within one week of treatment. For less severe acne, laser therapy or Microdermabrasion is recommended.

Desert Med Aesthetic provide acne scar solutions to patients in Palm Desert, Palm Springs, Indian Wells, and Rancho Mirage. To learn more about what we can do to help you achieve smooth and clear skin, contact our aesthetic specialist today!
