Can Microneedling with PRP Help Reduce Acne Scars?

Featured Image

Acne scars are notoriously difficult to conceal with makeup, as they are often rough in texture and can be discolored compared to the surrounding skin. Not only that, but most topical products and over-the-counter solutions do little to even out acne scarring. For men, women, and teenagers who are frustrated or embarrassed by acne scarring, our caring team at Forma Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ is here to help with an array of cutting-edge and effective acne scar treatment options, including microneedling plus PRP. Here, we'll discuss how microneedling with PRP can be used to transform your complexion and even out areas of rough texture and discoloration, including acne scars and more.

How can I get rid of acne scars?

Acne scars, which can appear as rough, raised, depressed, or discolored areas on the skin, can be particularly frustrating and stubborn. For many people, acne scars are embarrassing and unwanted reminders of a traumatic period of their life while struggling with adolescent acne, while others may not develop acne and acne scars until adulthood. In either case, you may find that skin care products aren't effective in smoothing out acne scars. If that is the case, we can help. One of the most popular and effective treatment options for reducing or even correcting acne scarring is microneedling plus PRP.

What is microneedling with PRP?

Microneedling with PRP is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment that combines two therapies — microneedling collagen induction and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy — for a boosted effect and more complete, longer-lasting results. During microneedling plus PRP, traditional microneedling is first performed on the patient's target treatment areas. This involves rolling a specialized handpiece equipped with tiny needles across the skin's surface to create micro-injuries. These micro-injuries stimulate the body's natural healing and regenerative processes, triggering the production of collagen and elastin, which work to smooth out skin texture, tone, and more. Then, a PRP serum prepared from components in the patient's own blood is applied to the skin and allowed to infuse into deeper layers via the micro-injuries. The PRP serum contains powerful growth factors and regenerative proteins to speed the healing process, encourage cell turnover, and optimize results. For acne scarring specifically, microneedling plus PRP is a fantastic option for reducing redness, smoothing out pock marks and depressed acne scars, evening out skin texture, and creating an overall clearer and more radiant complexion.

What else can microneedling plus PRP help with?

While acne scars are a common skin concern treated with microneedling plus PRP therapy, this exciting treatment is highly versatile and can help patients conquer a multitude of skin concerns simultaneously, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
