Are PRP Injections or PRP Microneedling Better For Acne Scars?

Acne scars are one of the biggest skin concerns among young people. Treating them can be frustrating and often requires professional, medical treatment. Platelet rich plasma is one such treatment that is showing promise for treating acne scars. So, are PRP injections or PRP microneedling better for acne scars?

The answer will vary based on each patient and the type of acne scarring they have. If you have rolling acne scars in several places, microneedling may work better, especially if not overly deep. Microneedling only penetrates the surface of the skin and thus it is ideal for these types of acne scars.

If you have larger acne scars or those that are deeply pitted, PRP injections may provide better results. Additionally, some people may undergo other injections for acne scars which can often be supplemented with PRP injections.

Ultimately, determining the right PRP treatment for acne scars will depend on your scarring, skin type, and other factors. To schedule a consultation with one of our master estheticians, call us at 206-279-2112. You can also reach out online via chat or contact form.
