Treating acne scars can be one of the most tedious and frustrating skin concerns to treat. Platelet rich plasma can help boost other procedures frequently used to treat acne scars such as microneedling and laser resurfacing. Though, PRP can also be injected into deeper acne scars to promote collagen production and help improve the appearance of pitted acne scars. Let’s look at PRP microneedling vs. PRP injections for acne scars.
Microneedling—also called collagen induction therapy—is one of the top treatments utilized to address acne scars. Adding PRP can help boost the collagen and healing response which can help improve results. Though, like with traditional microneedling, you will likely require multiple sessions.
Injections of PRP allow for a more targeted treatment into pitted acne scars. It can also treat them on a deeper plane than microneedling. This may be recommended if you have only a few major acne scars, or for particularly severe ones. Often a combination of PRP microneedling and injections of PRP is ideal.
