PRP treatment for acne scars: A MasterStroke treatment
✴️ Acne scarring is a consequence of abnormal resolution or wound healing following acne inflammation.
✴️ Current scenario :Microneedling has become an important treatment modality for acne scars. The principle of using microneedling is to initiate collagen synthesis. This is achieved by causing minute injury to the dermis with the use of microneedles. This triggers the sequence of events of the healing process, releasing growth signals immediately after the injury.
✴️ Autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains high concentrations of platelet growth factors.(PDGF)
PDGF improves dermal regeneration and acts locally to promote protein and collagen synthesis which makes the wound healing faster and better.
PRP has recently got worldwide attention in acne scar treatment due to its ability in modifying wound healing and collagen synthesis.
The current data according to latest clinical trials also suggests that PRP may improve wound healing and ✅ early scar quality.
✴️ Procedure of PRP treatment :
Blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and then put into the centrifuge, which removes white and red blood cells, leaving in only the PRP.
