The Best Treatments for Acne Scars

Get Beautiful Skin You’ll Love to Show Off

At Medical Cosmetics, we know that acne scars can be frustrating and can decrease your self-image and that is the last thing we want! That’s why we offer several different procedures that are designed to target acne scars and reduce their appearance to leave you with smooth, beautiful, confidence-boosting skin. Here are our Lancaster aesthestics company’s most popular:

Collagen P.I.N.

Sometimes referred to as dermal or micro needling, Collagen P.I.N. is the newest form of needling that provides a customized and effective treatment. Many of our patients that suffer from acne scars on their face, upper chest, and/or decolletage, and our procedure can be performed on all of these areas.

Because the skin’s repair process begins immediately upon your Collagen P.I.N. treatment, your acne scars will disappear almost immediately. In fact, Fibroblasts (the cells that synthesize new collagen) are active for up to as much as one year after just one Collagen P.I.N. treatment, which means you’ll enjoy younger, healthier, plumper, and firmer skin, effectively reducing the appearance of your acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines.

Photo Dynamic Therapy

In addition to acne scars, photo dynamic therapy is an effective treatment for severe acne itself. If you suffer from acne and have tried face washes, topical creams, and/or oral treatments with no results, our procedure can help. Once your photo dynamic therapy is complete, you’ll enjoy smoother, brighter skin.

By combining light and a special photosensitizing solution that targets and destroys acne activity, photo dynamic therapy can control your acne and reduce the appearance of acne scars. Before you begin, we’ll schedule a consultation to assess your skin, and depending on the severity of your acne, we’ll recommend 2-5 sessions every few weeks to achieve the best results.

Microdermabrasion

The most common methods of microdermabrasion use either microparticles or a diamond-tipped wand to buff away dead skin cells to reduce the appearance of acne scars. This simple procedure feels like a massage and can be performed on the face, hands, elbows, feet, back, neck, and chest to reveal radiant, rejuvenated skin.

Microdermabrasion is a surface procedure, which means it can target brown spots, wrinkles, stretch marks, and scars, but is not permanent. With regular use of effective moisturizers, however, the smooth results you get can last for many weeks and the procedure can be done as often as every week if your skin allows.

StarLux IPL

Like photodynamic therapy, StarLux IPL also uses the power of light to treat acne scars. Our high-powered device is used to deliver an intense, visible pulse of light that targets skin imperfections and works to correct them. While the procedure is similar to a laser, it uses a broad spectrum of light instead of just one wavelength. This lets us target a larger area of skin in shorter treatments.

StarLux IPL will yield immediate results while also stimulating your skin’s collagen production after you leave to give you a healthy, youthful look. Whether you have acne scars on your face, neck, or chest, our procedures can be performed on all three areas to reduce their appearance and leave you feeling beautiful.
