Can Microneedling With PRP Help Clear Up Acne Scars?


Say goodbye to acne scars and hello to a whole new you with microneedling plus PRP

Have you spent years – or even decades – trying to hide your acne scars? You are not alone. Acne scars be a constant reminder of a frustrating time in your life, but they can also keep you from feeling confident about your complexion. Making matters worse, acne scarring is often extremely difficult – if not impossible – to conceal with makeup alone. If you’re desperate to smooth out acne scars and get the glowing skin you’ve always wanted, microneedling with PRP may be right for you. If you’re curious to learn more, consider this helpful information on the benefits of microneedling plus PRP for acne scarring from the aesthetic experts at Ageless Grace in Murrieta, CA.

What kind of acne scars do I have?


There are a number of classifications of acne scars, each of which has a unique appearance and may be caused by a particular type of acne. In most cases, severe or cystic acne leads to acne scarring. Patients who pick or squeeze acne blemishes may be more likely to experience scarring and/or may make their acne scars worse. Some of the most common types of acne scars include boxcar, rolling, and ice pick scars, all of which can be improved with microneedling plus PRP therapy.

What does microneedling do for acne scars?


Microneedling is a relatively simple yet highly beneficial treatment for acne scarring and other skin imperfections. During a microneedling treatment at Ageless Grace, patients will relax in one of our private treatment rooms. To begin, the skin will be cleansed. If needed, a topical anesthetic can be applied to minimize any discomfort with microneedling. The treatment itself involves using a handheld device with tiny, fine-gauge needles to make micro-injuries to the skin’s surface. Rather than damaging the skin, these micro-injuries actually boost the skin’s health by stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.

Over time, new collagen fibers and healthy skin cells work to create a smoother skin texture, firmer skin tone, and fuller, more youthful volume. For patients with acne scarring, the skin rejuvenation benefits of microneedling help to fill in depressions and reduce the appearance of scars. For most patients, a series of 4 – 6 treatment sessions is required to achieve the desired outcome.

Should I add PRP to microneedling for acne scars?

When PRP therapy is combined with microneedling, the results can be even more astounding. Microneedling plus PRP begins with a small blood draw from the patient’s arm. This vial of blood is then placed in a specialized centrifuge machine, where the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is isolated. After the microneedling portion of the treatment, the PRP serum is applied to the face and allowed to penetrate to the deeper layers of the skin. The powerful growth factors and other proteins contained in the PRP then work to supercharge the body’s healing and regeneration process, further enhancing the results of the microneedling treatment.

What does microneedling plus PRP do besides help acne scars?


Patients who undergo microneedling with PRP to reduce acne scarring may be excited to learn that many of their other skin concerns will improve as well. These may include:

Fine lines and wrinkles

Skin laxity

Uneven skin tone
