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.

One Of Best Acne Scar Treatments: Microneedling With PRP

By | PRP Skin Care

Getting rid of acne scars is known to be a long and difficult process. Often, the complete elimination of acne scars is impossible, but certain treatment methods can reduce their appearance. Arguably, one of the best acne scar treatments is microneedling with PRP

Microneedling can be performed with or without platelet rich plasma. However, combining this collagen induction treatment with PRP supercharges the process. This can lead to increased cell turnover and higher collagen production. This, in turn, can lead to collagen filling in, or smoothing acne scars. Platelet rich plasma is known to aid and induce the healing process which allows for your body to treat your scars like a new wound.

The tiny punctures made through microneedling, push the PRP deep into the skin. While these holes in the skin are usually not visible to the naked eye, they trick your body into triggering your healing response. This can create new skin and provides nourishment to the treated areas.

These two powerful treatments combine to create one of the most effective and best acne scar treatments: microneedling with PRP. Your master esthetician can determine if your acne scars may benefit from microneedling with PRP.
